ORS 72.6060¹
What constitutes acceptance of goods

(1) Acceptance of goods occurs when the buyer:

(a) After a reasonable opportunity to inspect the goods signifies to the seller that the goods are conforming or that the buyer will take or retain them in spite of their nonconformity; or

(b) Fails to make an effective rejection as provided in ORS 72.6020 (Manner and effect of rightful rejection) (1), but such acceptance does not occur until the buyer has had a reasonable opportunity to inspect them; or

(c) Does any act inconsistent with the seller’s ownership; but if such act is wrongful as against the seller it is an acceptance only if ratified by the seller.

(2) Acceptance of a part of any commercial unit is acceptance of that entire unit. [1961 c.726 §72.6060 (What constitutes acceptance of goods)]

Notes of Decisions

Where defendant buyer leased equip­ment to a third party who found it unacceptable, use of the equip­ment by the lessee as part of its initial inspec­tion and by defendant in the course of an effort to correct problems with the equip­ment was not an acceptance through doing an act inconsistent with seller's ownership under this sec­tion. Can-Key Industries v. Industrial Leasing Corp., 286 Or 173, 593 P2d 1125 (1979)

Where buyer was permitted to retain pos­ses­sion of motorhome pending outcome of ac­tion, isolated instance of use was not act inconsistent with seller's ownership and did not constitute reacceptance. Steers Security Inc. v. Sportscoach Corp., 99 Or App 363, 781 P2d 1267 (1989)
