Orbi Pro SXR80 failed - red light even after HW reset on a known good connection

This router has 5 yr HW support, good until 2027. It failed today from one second to another. Checked internet modem connection with another router (good conn) and did a zHW reset on the Orbi Pro. Trying to contact support but all channels (chat, phone, online) indicate “expired”. How can one get a replacement router for a failing router still under warranty? Thanks. .

The SXR80 was released around April 2020, so yes - well within the five years limited warranty.

 

When you head to https://my.netgear.com/ after login, click on the SXR80 on the list of registered products, and you will find this:

 

Serial Number: 1234567890123
Registered on: yyyy-mm-dd
Purchased: yyyy-mm-dd

 

I would expect to see something like this where you can choose: [Request Hardware Support]

So if you are the first owner, have a proof of ownership, and have purchased from a NETGEAR authorized reseller - this should be possible.
