Providing spare parts
For most Siemens Industry products and systems we provide spare parts even after the start of the product phase-out over a period of ten years. Under the following link you can find an overview of some different Products and Systems and their time of provision.
In the product status in Product Support you can find out whether a specific product is already in product phase-out. This is where the current status for all products is displayed in the product lifecycle. The "product phase-out" milestone is decisive for the provision of the spare parts.
After the final product phase-out ("product phase-out" milestone), spare parts can usually no longer be supplied. Of course we can jointly work out individual solutions with you for the time after the product phase-out.
Centrally provided spare parts by Siemens can be supplied worldwide within a short space of time. The following table shows the average delivery times for spare parts from the central warehouse.
The delivery address and the priority specified during ordering are decisive for the delivery time.

*) Please note:
**) The delivery time is valid only, if ordering party and recipients are located in the same country.
Based on our high customer-specific product orientation we cannot provide all spare parts in storage. In such cases, we offer the option of reproducing spare parts or carrying out repairs. Here, the delivery times may vary from the ones described above.
Replacement of defective components
We offer a replacement service for many spare parts, to reduce plant downtimes. When you are buying a spare part, we will take back your defective component.
You can find out from your Siemens Contact Person, whether a spare part is suitable for the replacement process and what the modalities are for the return.
Spare parts that are used for diagnostic purposes from your spare parts storage can be taken back within three months after delivery, for a handling fee.
Emergency spare parts service
In many countries spare parts can also be ordered outside normal business hours. For this purpose, please contact your Siemens Contact Person.
