Originally built PC with Xion 600 W , XOn-600F14T-201, bar code P0603 02140, Machine stopped powering up, I replaced the power supply and now the machine works. Can I get an RMA to get this supply repaired?
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You didn't include any additional details about your power supply so the reason that it's not working could be one of several.
I assume you're plugging this into your motherboard correctly. Make sure the main connection pins are lined up correctly. In truth, you shouldn't be able to do this incorrectly due to it only allowing it to be inserted in one direction. Another note, you can't just plug it into the wall and expect the fan to go when the circuits aren't complete (i.e testing it outside the computer).
In newer systems that is an additional 4 prong plug wire that needs to be attached to the motherboard, in addition to the 20 prong (the only BIG one) plug
Lastly, power supplies are very cheaply built, so it's also possible it has just died. You didn't mention that it was working originally either, so I don't know if it not working is a new thing.
I usually get a 'good' one (higher wattage, 600-750W or more) and reuse these from system to sytem. What's a good one? Well, that's up for discussion, but one that feels heavier, has detachable cables, and dual 12v rails. These are the features I like to see. The higher initial investment easily pays for itself over the longer lifetime.
Try unplugging, then plugging back in the 20/24pin power connector. When you plug in the power connector, make sure the power supply is OFF and the switch in the back is OFF and nothing is plugged into the computer.
Your power supply may have failed. Such failure is common, especially with the low quality supplies used in some machines these days. Sometimes this is due to the failure of the fan inside the supply, which causes overheating, and eventual component failure (especially of the electrolytic capacitors). If you have a voltmeter available, you can check for the presence of voltages on the cabling which connects to the computer motherboard, drives etc.
Google for the proper pinout specifications- the cabling has colored wiring.
Have the computer plugged in- first check for the standby voltage- a +5 volt line which powers a small circuit on the motherboard. If this is missing, your machine will not power up at all. If present, then press the ON button, and check for voltages on the red and yellow wires. On the red +5 volts, yellow +12. These should be very close to those exact readings. If more than a few tenths of a volt off (esp. the +5), then the supply is bad also.
You sound like you know what you're doing, so I expect you've made all the motherboard connections(Same as the original PS).
Does the switch work when you test it?
If so, it sounds like the PS is DOA.
I've had bad luck with cheap power supplies.
