This engine showed up and looked like the driver put his truck in reverse with the tailgate open and locked up his brakes. The recoil starter was bent up so badly it could not pull over the engine. The air cleaner was all broken and had to be sent back. I bought a different motor

Four reasons I bought this Lifan 389cc: 1) Noise level: db specs for the Lifan Energy Storm ESI-7000iER-EFI Generator uses same Lifan 389cc engine tested 59db @ 23' -Granted the Lifan Energy Storm is in a semi-closed enclosure, I did similar with my Pressure Washer (see pictures) 2) Power, need enough torque to drive a 4gpm 4000psi Pressure Washer Pump (RKV35G40HD-F24) sold here at Home Depot 3) Cost: Lifan 389cc is inexpensive 4) Bonus: Free ship to Home Depot store, over $100 savings The Lifan 389cc fits my needs to a tee, quiet similar to a push lawn mower, inexpensive and drives a very powerful pump. Engine doesn't start on the first pull, at least not yet with only 1 hour operation, 2-3 pulls, be sure buy a quality spark plug to replace the included plug. Overall give this engine 5 stars. Home Depot Rocks!

What is the process for getting a new engine if something goes wrong within the 3yr. manufacturers warranty period.

For example, do I have to ship the engine back to China or just bring it to Home Depot for an exchange and the store handles the rest.
