Hi, Thank you. You may have rights under the Sale of Goods Act 1979, there is an implied condition in the sale of all goods that they are fit for purpose and free of any minor defects - see section 14. Breach of this section is treated as a breach of contract and technically a breach of contract can be sued for within 6 years. The remedy for this may be a reduction in the purchase price or a full refund. You would have to prove that this is an actual defect with the goods concerned. Have you asked for a refund? Kind regards AJ
