    Default What's my right (warranty) vacuum cleaner.

    Hi all, we purchased a vacuum cleaner if I recall right over a year ago, and recently it just stops working when it feels like it, which is odd and annoying.

    It's like a $500 vacuum

    What is my right? Take it back? Will they replace it?
    I couldn't find much info on the ACCC website.

    Thanks

    We have the receipt somewhere. I'm sure I know where it is.

    Even if it is out of manufacturer warranty you have s statutory warranty that applies for expected life of the product.

    You should be covered as the goods should function properly for a reasonable amount of time (even if it is outside of warranty) - I think it comes under consumer guarantees. So you could reasonably expect a $500 vacuum to work properly for several years.
    "The Checkout" on the ABC did a segment on consumer law around warranties etc - was very interesting & explained it well.
