When a customer experiences a problem with the operation of equipment, it is suggested that he/she contacts our service department via our toll free number. To assist a customer in describing perceived malfunctions in the anesthesia machine, see page 20 of our catalog for parts diagram. In some cases, assistance can be given on the phone. If this is not the case, then an instrument may be sent in for repair.  A.M. Bickford, Inc. realizes the importance of customers’ anesthesia equipment to the operation of their practice and the health of their patients. When equipment is received for repair, that equipment is given priority status, repaired and returned in as little time as possible. When a repair is being sent in, it is extremely helpful if we are notified via our toll free number about the problem so we can be alerted and prepared.
