of time, not to exceed 30 days. If you have any questions regarding your warranty rights

or improper maintenance as set forth in the Sears Engine Warranty Policy. Sears
is not liable to cover failures of Warranted Parts caused by the use of add-on,
non-original, or modified parts.
5.
Maintenance
Any Warranted Part which is not scheduled for replacement as required
maintenance or which is scheduled only for regular inspection to the effect of
"repair or replace as necessary" shall be warranted as to defects for the warranty
period. Any Warranted Part which is scheduled for replacement as required
maintenance shall be warranted as to defects only for the period of time up
to the first scheduled replacement for that part. Any replacement part that is
equivalent in performance and durability may be used in the performance of
any maintenance or repairs. The owner is responsible for the performance of
all required maintenance, as defined in the Sears Operating and Maintenance
Instructions.
6.
Consequential Coverage
Coverage hereunder shall extend to the failure of any engine components caused
by the failure of any Warranted Part still under warranty.
