Some parts such as control boards and LED light boards are sensitive to static. These items are sealed in an anti-static bag that safeguards them from damaging static build-up. Once these bags are opened we are unable to guarantee that the item hasn't be exposed to / damaged by static build-up and therefore cannot be returned.

Electrical items are considered installed when any terminals, wires, and/or harnesses have been attached to the electrical item. Electrical items that have been “plugged-in” but have not had power applied to them are still considered installed. All electrical items returned are inspected by technicians for signs of installation.
Gas components are considered installed once the gas lines or electrical connectors have been attached. Gas components include, but are not limited to, items such as gas valves, pressure regulators and safety valves. All gas components returned are inspected by technicians for signs of installation.
