Return Policy

Thank you for doing business with Felix Storch, Inc. We understand that sometimes merchandise may need to be returned. Please see the below requirements for an acceptable return on any Summit, Accucold, or PureTherm item.

Buyer's Remorse

FSI does not have a buyer's remorse policy. To ensure that your customer orders the correct model for their needs, we strongly recommend contacting our sales team by email at sales@summitappliance.com or by phone at 1-800-932-4267 or 718-893-3900 ext 507 before placing your order.  We are happy to answer any questions about specifications, customization, options, and availability.

Helpful Qualifying Questions Before Placing Order:
  • Confirm the size, description, and color of the unit
  • Application/end use of the product (residential, commercial, medical, general purpose facilities, indoor/outdoor applications, etc.)
  • Counter-height (freestanding use only) vs. Built-in capable
  • Door swing/hinging (note: in the event that a customer orders a customized unit with the wrong door swing on a non-reversible door, the customer is responsible for paying for the door replacement)
  • Extra features, such as monitoring devices, locks, fans, digital thermostats, etc.

Freight Damages

Goods shipped collect or billed to dealers' carriers or via 3rd party logistics companies by customer choice are not eligible for returns. Shipper must file a claim with third party carrier and work out the disposition of the product with the carrier. For unauthorized units returned to FSI, a credit will not be issued.

For damaged shipments shipped with FSI carriers or on FSI trucks, please refuse the shipment. If this is a multi-unit order, please accept the rest of your shipment but refuse the damaged ones. Note damage on proof of delivery paperwork and delivery person will sign and acknowledge damaged notification. Concealed damaged items should be reported within 5 days after accepting delivery.

For filing claims on FSI carrier shipments or help with 3rd party claims, please contact claims@summitappliance.com or call 718-893-3900 ext. 514
