Default Should I Secure Erase my SSD before sending it back for warranty?

The reason I ask is that the utility that came with the SSD says that
there is a possibility that if you use the secure erase feature that it
will lockup the whole drive. So should I secure erase or just delete the
partition and that should be sufficient? I don't want the manufacturer
blaming me for secure erasing it, when the problem is elsewhere.
