Kestrel Repair Request Overview
Upon receiving your Kestrel, we will troubleshoot the problem or concern. If the concern relates to the accuracy of a measurement, it may be possible for the sensor to be corrected and validated, and some issues are repairable. If your unit is still under our Limited Warranty, it will be repaired or replaced for free and returned to you. If there is any charge for a repair, or if your Kestrel has an unrepairable problem and is no longer under warranty, we will contact you to authorize payment before proceeding further. If your Kestrel is unrepairable, you will have the option of trading it in for a new or upgraded model under our Kestrel Trade-In, Trade-Up Program.
Please note: Be sure to save the data on your meter using the Kestrel Weather App (iOS or Android) or Kestrel Ballistics App (iOS or Android) as all data on your Kestrel unit might be erased during the repair process.
