The warranty does not cover colour variations normal to natural stones, natural variations in the stone resulting from its formation and minor hairline cracks which do not affect the sauna stove’s safety and operation. The warranty also does not include the surface colour changes which occur near the fire box in ceramic stoves. These kinds of features and the hairline cracks mentioned in the next paragraph are not regarded as product faults. The natural colour variations of stone tiles are not included under the quality warranty.

The warranty does not cover damage caused by normal wear or misuse. The warranty does not cover minor cracks in plaster surfaces, tile joints or interior parts of ceramic sauna stoves which do not affect the safety and operation of the sauna stove.

The natural colour variations in stone tiles are not included under the warranty. The tiles are always selected in natural light.

On the basis of a justified and proven warranty report the manufacturer may choose to repair or replace the faulty product. The repair or replacement will be at the manufacturer’s costs.

The replacement part will be given in accordance with section 12.2 a spare part warranty. The repaired product’s warranty will remain as before.
