Registration Instructions 


  • Machine Warranty vs. Part Warranty:
    • Machine Warranty is for normal filing of a claim on a machine that has warranty coverage remaining.
    • Part Warranty is for a part that was purchased and failed with in 90 days of installation after the warranty coverage of the machine had expired. Parts that are received from Nilfisk-Advance defective are also filed as a part warranty.
    • No travel or labor coverage will be provided for a part warranty.
  • Claim number
    • This claim number is mainly for your purposes and it is REQUIRED
      • It can only be numbers and uppercase letters.
      • NO dashes, spaces, slashes or other special characters will be allowed.
      • This number is often a work order number or other number from you paper work or system so you can identify what claim is for on your end.
  • Serial number
    • Once a valid serial number has been entered and validated by the system click “Find Machine”, if there is more than one machine with the serial number you will be prompted to select which model number you have. If there is only one machine it will be populated automatically.
    • The serial number has to be entered and must be valid in our system or you will not be able to submit a claim on that particular serial number.
      • If you have verified the serial number on the machine’s model/serial plate and it is still not coming up as a valid serial number in our system then you will need to provide a copy of the invoice of sale from Nilfisk-Advance of said machine with the serial number listed on it to us for review. Information can be faxed to us at 800.263.5111, or e-mailed to:
    • A serial number by itself may not be a unique identifier for a machine. A model and a serial number are both required to validate a particular machine.
