Warranty Question

Hi, So about two weeks ago a capacitor on my Framework 13 (AMD 7840U) Mainboard popped.
No idea why or how, all I know is that my laptop instantly became a very fancy paperweight.

I decided to contact support to see if this was covered under warranty, which I was really hoping for, considering I spent $700ish on upgrading the mainboard from the 12th gen intel and I’d already gave the old mainboard to a family member.

So I opened a ticket, took some pictures of the damage like they asked, and they did tell me that the mainboard needed replacement, and they asked for a delivery address.

But the next day I got another email saying that they were escalating the ticket, and I haven’t heard back in nearly a week. No status, no ticket number, no tracking number, nada. All other replies and communications have taken around a day or less to get a response.
I live in the US, so I’m pretty sure freight forwarding shouldn’t enter into it?

I’ve never really had to submit a warranty claim with anyone before (other than lenovo, who just told me to take a long walk off a short pier from the get-go) So I don’t know if I’ve messed up something here or if this is normal procedure.

Does anyone have some information or advice?
Not having a laptop isn’t a critical emergency for me, but I am starting to get antsy wondering what’s going on.

The support people that are responsible for sending part replacements are a little overloaded at the moment. I would wait a few more days.


Hi. I have been throught the RMA process. Their are no ticket, no RMA numbers used.

  1. I was sent an email to say they would replace the part.
  2. I was sent an email with instructions on how to return the old part. It included a pdf address label of where to drop the part off.
  3. the Framework online orders section had a new order for the part, but with zero cost to pay.
  4. new part arrived.

It was 10 days from 1 to 4.

Ok, thank you. Knowing there’s a backlog makes me feel a lot better.

Thank you as well. Again, I’ve never had an experience with a warranty where I wasn’t just immediately told to buzz off and buy a whole new laptop out of pocket before (Which is why I got a framework to begin with).
So knowing that it’s normal to have a decent chunk of wait time after that first “We’ll replace it” email does make me feel better.

I don’t see any issues with your ticket, just a bit of delay due to backlog, thanks for your patience!

Thank you for the confirmation!
Again, it’s not the wait that has me anxious as much as not knowing.

In any case, I actually just heard back from support with the official replacement confirmation and order number. So, I’m actually REALLY pleased right now.
