Like any other device, your Amazon Kindle can be vulnerable to accidents, defects or performance issues. The good news is you might be able to resolve these issues by taking advantage of your Amazon warranty. The warranty comes at no extra cost to you but only offers limited coverage of selected scenarios with defective hardware or performance issues.
But how do you know if you are covered under Amazon's warranty? Thankfully, checking your Kindle's warranty status is simple. Here's how you can do it.
When you buy a new or certified refurbished Amazon Kindle, your device comes with a warranty that covers eligible hardware repairs. As you use your Kindle, you may notice issues with your device that are due to manufacturing defects, rather than accidental damage or normal wear and tear. In this case, you would be covered under Amazon Kindle's limited warranty policies. Checking your current coverage can be the first step in getting your repair.
If you want to find out what type of coverage your Amazon Kindle falls under, follow these steps to check your applicable warranty.
If you need to review the current warranty status on your Amazon Kindle, you'll need to log in to your Amazon account to check the date of purchase.
If the purchase was not made directly from your Amazon account or you're unable to access the order details, you can check your warranty status by contacting customer support.
