(d) DEFECTIVE MERCHANDISE
490.0748 Defective Merchandise. A refrigeration compressor which ultimately fails as the result of many years of productive use and not because of a defect inherent in it when it was first sold is not eligible for defective merchandise credit when it is turned in on the purchase of a replacement compressor, even though some credit may be allowed by the retailer. Such a credit would be in the nature of a trade-in which may not be deducted from the selling price of the replacement compressor. 1/28/69.
