Return / Warranty Service


What steps should I follow to return a product?
  • First, request an RMA number.

  • To initiate a return, fill out an RMA Request form. Within 24 hours, you will receive your RMA number by email or fax. If you would like to speak with a customer service representative, call us at 1-800-536-4316.

  • Then, ship your item(s) back to Jameco.

  • Once you've received your RMA number, pack your items in the box you received from Jameco or a similar box.

  • Be sure to include all the accessories!

  • Once you've packed the box, write the RMA number clearly on the outside with permanent marker. Then, ship it back to Jameco using UPS, FedEx, or First Class Mail. Our address is:
    Jameco Electronics
    1355 Shoreway Road

    We do not accept freight collect packages on returns.

  • Finally, we will refund or replace your item(s). Depending on what you requested, we will refund you by check, credit your account, or replace your item. Please be aware that it can take as long as 30 days until you receive your check or replacement item.

Can I return kits or books?
