If the problem with your Surface is not covered by the warranty or if your warranty has expired, your Surface may be eligible for out-of-warranty service for a fee. Be aware that out-of-warranty service for your device may no longer be available in your region. To learn more, see How to get service for Surface.

We provide a post-service warranty for devices that have been serviced or replaced by our service center. The length of the warranty depends on whether the service was in-warranty or out-of-warranty:

  • In-warranty service: If your Surface was serviced or replaced within the original warranty period, you receive either the balance of your original hardware warranty or 90 days, whichever is longer.

  • Out-of-warranty service: If your Surface was serviced outside the original warranty period, your replacement or serviced device will have a 90-day hardware warranty.

Before you send your Surface to us, make sure you check out How to prepare your Surface for service.

To determine your model details, see Find out which Surface model you have.

For help finding this, see Find the serial number on Surface devices.
