‘in guarantee’ or ‘under guarantee’ ?

You don’t say that something is `in guarantee’, but `under guarantee’.

Examples: The TV is still under guarantee. I have to remind my father that the air conditioner is still under guarantee.”

The stress in guarantee is on the final syllable. Not on the first.
