Returns

For USA Customers

Complete service and support is available for all current YOUNG products.  Our service department can analyze and service your equipment for a nominal fee to bring the unit back into specifications.  Replacement parts are also available for customers who wish to service their own instruments.  Service and support for older sensor models is dependent upon parts availability.  Calibration of older sensor models will continue to be available.  

For customers outside the USA

Most R. M. Young Company distributors outside of the USA are able to provide local service and support.   Please contact our distributor in your area to determine the availability of service or if the product may need to be shipped to the R. M. Young Company.  If for any reason this is not practical, please contact us directly.
