If this warranty covers the problem that has occurred with your machine, Brother will either repair or replace the machine at its own expense, at Brother's discretion. Brother will send the repaired machine or replacement machine at its own expense to the Brother vendor to whom you submitted your claim under the warranty. If Brother has informed you that another location will be taking care of your claim under the warranty, your machine will be sent to this location.
