3. If within this period Baldor Electric receives from the Original Buyer written notice of any alleged defect in any such apparatus and, if the apparatus is found not to be in conformity with this warranty (the Buyer having provided Baldor Electric a reasonable opportunity to perform any appropriate test thereon) Baldor Electric will, at its option and expense, either repair the same or supply a replacement therefore.

4. Baldor Electric, under either option, shall have the right to require the Original Buyer to deliver the apparatus for this purpose to a designated service center and the Original Buyer shall pay all charges for inbound and outbound transportation, removal and reinstallation of pump if required.
