How to File a Claim
In the event of a possible warranty occurrence for engines or parts within warranty:
- Contact an Authorized Lycoming Distributor to order the warranty replacement part(s).
- Should you need troubleshooting assistance before any warranty activity, please contact Lycoming Technical Support Department for technical support before ordering warranty replacement part(s) or filing a warranty claim.
- Return the removed part(s) to Lycoming Engines using the same Authorized Lycoming Distributor that ordered the warranty replacement part(s) and filed a claim.
- The Authorized Lycoming Distributor will return the part(s) and warranty claim to Lycoming for processing. Please do not return the part(s) directly to Lycoming unless otherwise instructed by Lycoming’s Technical Support Department, Warranty Administration or other authorized Lycoming representative.
- The claim and part(s) will be evaluated by Lycoming upon receipt and will be processed in accordance with Lycoming's latest service publications and warranty conditions.
- Upon approval of the warranty claim, reimbursement will be issued through the same Authorized Lycoming Distributor that processed your claim.
NOTE: Dual Magnetos and Fuel Control Components, e.g. Carburetors Fuel Servos, Fuel Flow Dividers/Manifolds, have separate warranty provisions and are to be repaired by the suppliers' authorized service centers in accordance with their respective Service Publications.
These types of components are to be repaired at the appropriate authorized service centers. Upon repair, claims for the R&I labor for the component and associated standard freight charges should be submitted through an authorized Lycoming distributor for review and reimbursement. If an invoice was issued by the authorized service center for the repair, Lycoming will require a copy of the invoice and the reason for the invoice for review. If the invoice was generated since the part is outside of the suppliers’ warranty period but inside of the Lycoming warranty period and would otherwise be deemed a warranty occurrence, the claim will be considered. However, if the repair was required based on operation-induced issues, the claim will be denied, regardless of the engine or part still being within the warranty period.
How long is my engine under warranty?
- New and rebuilt certified engines are warranted for 24-months or the recommended engine time between overhauls, whichever comes first. Find your engine's recommended TBO in Lycoming Service Instruction 1009.
- New non-certified engines are warranted for 12 months from the date of the first operation.
- Overhauled engines are warranted for 12-months or the recommended engine time between overhauls, whichever comes first. Find your engine's recommended TBO in Lycoming Service Instruction 1009.
How long are my parts under warranty?
Lycoming warrants replacement parts for 12-months and cylinder kits for 24-months (except the O-235 cylinders which are warranted for 12-months).
When does my warranty start?
For most engines, the warranty period begins on either the first date of operation or 24 months from the engine or part shipment date from Lycoming, whichever comes first. The warranty is valid for registered and non-registered engines.
What actions will void my warranty?
Lycoming warranties parts and engines through normal use and service. Warranty voids if an engine or part has been repaired or altered outside Lycoming's factory in any way that would affect its durability, safety or reliability. Lycoming does not warrant repairs or alterations that use or incorporate parts and components other than genuine Lycoming parts or parts approved by Lycoming.
