Warranties are designed to protect the customers from the faults a product they purchased may have. Even though the companies give their best to deliver outstanding products that will work without any issues, faults are unfortunately part of the game. But, with the warranty, the customer may get a free repair or a replacement. Here, we are going to talk about the Nintendo Switch warranty and some things you need to know.

Nintendo Switch warranty period
When it comes to the Nintendo Switch console, there is a limited warranty period of 12 months from the moment of the purchase.
Games and accessories (including the adapter and the dock, and the Joy-Con) also come with a limited warranty period, but of 3 months only from the moment of the purchase.
In order for the Switch to be covered by the warranty, you must have the receipt that you’ve got when you purchased the console. If you do not have it, the console won’t be covered by the warranty even if the warranty period is still on. If you just purchased Nintendo Switch, make sure to place the receipt in some secure place so that you can find and use it in the time of need.
You will see the date of the purchase on the receipt, and if the 12 months period didn’t pass, the console is still covered. There is no way to check for this online, and that’s another reason why you should keep the receipt secure.
What’s covered and what isn’t
Not everything is covered by the warranty. Things that are covered are factory defects and faults that arose during the manufacturing process. If the damage, faults, and errors didn’t arise during the manufacturing, the console won’t be covered by the warranty. Another thing that you should keep in mind is that Nintendo does not offer the option of an extended warranty.
