Does Factory Recertified Mean?
When a product wears a "factory recertified" label, it indicates a
previously purchased item returned to the manufacturer.
Big box stores have a guaranteed sale policy with manufacturers so
unsold products as well as customer returned products are all sent back
These items are factory-inspected, often by a third party, and if
needed, repairs are made to return the item to original as new
Factory recertification is necessary for
items with slight cosmetic damage, items where the box or packaging was
opened or damaged during shipment, and unsold items returned to
retailers for various other reasons.

units and overstocked items after factory recertification.

Because the product goes under this
additional inspection, not only does the consumer receive better
quality equipment at a lower price, it comes with a decreased chance of
future problems than an item purchased new.
