How does the warranty work? Does it have to be installed by a Kohler certified dealer for the warranty work?
Franz Gerster 
from New York 
December 13, 2012
Answer
Kohler does not require a Kohler certified installer only a minimum would be a certified electrician.

When a Kohler installer does the installation and start-up the warranty starts the day he starts the unit.

When a certified electrician installs and starts the unit the warranty starts the day the unit was shipped from the factory.

All service and warranty work must be completed by an authorized Kohler service technician.
