This guarantee does not cover normal wear and tear, cuts or scratches, or damage caused by impacts, accidents or waterborne debris.

This guarantee does not apply to products that have been stored, assembled or installed incorrectly, used inappropriately, abused, misused, altered, or cleaned with wrong cleaning methods or wrong cleaning products.

This guarantee does not apply if the products have been used for public use, outdoors or in a corrosive environment. It also does not cover accidental damage.

For customers in the US only: some states do not allow the limitation or exclusion of incidental or consequential damage, so this limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

What will IKEA do to correct the problem?
IKEA will examine the product and decide, at its sole discretion, if it is covered under this guarantee. If considered covered, IKEA through its own service operations, will then, at its sole discretion, replace it with the same or a comparable product.

If it is covered by this guarantee, IKEA will pay the costs of replacing it, labour and travel for staff, that IKEA incur, provided that the product is accessible for replacement without special expenditure. This does not apply to any work not authorized by IKEA. Replaced tap becomes the property of IKEA.

If the item is no longer sold by IKEA, IKEA will provide an appropriate replacement. It is IKEA that determines, at its sole discretion, what constitutes an appropriate replacement.

Bathroom wash-basins must be fixed to the wall. Secure that the walls in your bathroom can support the weight of the wash-basin and the furniture, as wrong installation may cause injury or damage. If you are uncertain about the installation, contact a professional. As wall materials vary, screws for fixing to the wall are not included. For advice on suitable screw systems, contact your local specialized dealer. Follow our assembly instructions, installation instructions and care instructions carefully.

Our mixer taps have been approved and certified to meet the relevant demands in every market. The certification reference is stated on the on the assembly instructions that are supplied in the mixer tap packaging.
