lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled

neglect or improper maintenance of your small off-road engine. Your emis-
sion control system includes parts such as the carburetor, air cleaner, ignition

proved modifications. You are responsible for presenting your small off-road
engine to an Authorized Sears Service Dealer as soon as a problem exists. The
undisputed warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of
time, not to exceed 30 days. If you have any questions regarding your warranty
rights and responsibilities, you should contact a Sears Service Representative
at 1-800-469-4663. The emission warranty is a defects warranty. Defects are
judged on normal engine performance. The warranty is not related to an in-use
emission test.
3. No Charge
Repair or replacement of any Warranted Part will be performed at no
charge to the owner, including diagnostic labor which leads to the
determination that a Warranted Part is defective, if the diagnostic work is
performed at an Authorized Sears Service Dealer. For emissions warranty
service contact your nearest Authorized Sears Service Dealer as listed in
the "Yellow Pages" under "Engines, Gasoline," "Gasoline Engines," "Lawn
Mowers," or similar category.
4. Claims and Coverage Exclusions
Warranty claims shall be filed in accordance with the provisions of the
Sears Engine Warranty Policy. Warranty coverage shall be excluded for
failures of Warranted Parts which are not original Sears parts or because
of abuse, neglect 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.
