How we will help you

We will respond to all eligible technical support queries within two business days. We will log your request in our call tracking system.  We will assign a specific case number to your query and communicate it to you with our feedback. Please mention this case number in all subsequent communication with us relating to your query.

More than one problem?

We track all submitted problems individually by assigning each its own case number. Hence, please use multiple forms to submit individual, unrelated problems.

Complimentary technical support

  • Complimentary technical support will be provided during the first 180 days from purchase of SKF condition monitoring products (90 days for a product upgrade), to assist with unexpected problems during start-up. This support is not a substitute for our training programmes.
  • You must register your product to use the complimentary technical support.

Fee-based technical support

  • Single incident support
    Customers may contact technical support on an “as needed” basis and receive continued support until the issue is resolved. The flat fee of $250 is payable by credit card. We will refund this fee to customers who purchase a Product Support Plan within 30 days of the initial call.  Customers may contact technical support via our on-line form or call 1-800-523-7514 within the US or +1-858-496-3627 outside of the US.
  • Annual product support plans are offered for our main hardware and software products. Choose from the following three plans*:

    1. Standard hardware
    2. Premier hardware
    3. Premier software

    Go to the Product Support Plan web page or contact Customer Service for more information and to subscribe.

    * Product Support Plan programmes offered in some regions may differ from the programmes described herein. Please consult your local SKF sales office for the programmes available in your area.
