Products Warranty Program

Great Lakes' warranty covers new equipment for one year against manufacturers' defects.* We also guarantee used equipment for six months and repaired equipment for 90 days. This warranty includes parts and labor at no charge. Great Lakes does not warranty equipment that has been misused, abused, or damaged by fire, water, or dropping.

*Biostar®/MiniSTAR® Warranty

The Biostar® has a five-year warranty and the MiniSTAR®, a one-year warranty, that covers all parts and service, provided Great Lakes pellets are exclusively used.

A five-year Extended Warranty is also available for the Biostar and MiniSTAR. The Extended Warranty must be purchased prior to the expiration of the original warranty.
