Determining whether the stethoscope is in warranty.
Stethoscopes manufactured from the year 2000 onwards, have a serial number on the chest piece:

e.g. A0J40786 The highlighted blue section refers to year and month produced, 0 = 2000 and J = 10th month (Oct.) e.g. I0G36453 was made in July, 2000. The second numeric character designates the year e.g 3=2003, 0=2000

Prior to 2000 “dots” or single digit serial numbers are on the stethoscope, which are out of warranty.

Stethoscopes manufactured in 2009, the serial number is 09 for 2009 as 9 is for 1999.

Please complete the form below and send it, along with your stethoscope to the address listed.


Warranty Period

Your Littmann stethoscope comes with the finest service and warranty policy in the industry. If a material or manufacturing defect is discovered during the warranty period, repairs will be done at no charge, except in the cases of obvious abuse or accidental damage. The warranty period will remain in tact if the stethoscope has been engraved providing the stethoscope has not been damaged from the engraving process. The binaural (tubing) must not be removed during the engraving process as this can cause damage, nor should the stethoscope be immersed in water at any time.
