This what I just found out what was written on it. This is a short version. What's the difference between warranty and guarantee? A warranty is “a promise or guarantee given.” A warranty is usually a written guarantee for a product, and it holds the maker of the product responsible to repair or replace a defective product or its parts. It is only used as a noun. Have any of you ever wondered about the difference between the two before?

Warranties are backed by the vendor or maker of the product as you mentioned. I guess someone could guarantee a product will work like infomercials have it fail. The key is having something in writing from the manufacturer. Something which can be legally binding.

Had to look that up. "A warranty is “a promise or guarantee given.” A warranty is usually a written guarantee for a product, and it holds the maker of the product responsible to repair or replace a defective product or its parts. It is only used as a noun." I believe that a warranty is something that contains the guarantee. The guarantee give by word of mouth is not acceptable. The guarantee must be placed in a written warranty.

Warranty is usually over a reusable product to fix/ replace it if it breaks Guarantee is usually experience while using an item.... Warrenty on car, music instruments, etc. The actual item Guarantees are usually experience concerning satisfaxtion when eating a food, using a product. Its usually not about item breaking, it can work just fine but you dont like the experience

Under warranty your product is replaceable it means your defective piece will be replaced by another product of the same level. Under guarantee your product is valuable, it means if your product is below quality or get damaged within the period, then you will be given full amount in cash which were used to purchase. You can buy another product of your own choice. While in warranty you will get another product of the same model of company's choice.
