Discoloration and some minor expansion, contraction, or movement of certain parts and resulting noise is normal and not a defect, and, therefore, not covered under warranty.

c) Any damage to the unit, combustion chamber, heat exchanger or other components due to water or weather damage which is the result of, but not limited to improper chimney/venting installation.

SÓLAS is not responsible for inadequate fireplace system draft caused by air conditioning and heating systems, mechanical ventilation systems, or general construction conditions which may generate negative pressure in the room in which the appliance is installed. Additionally, SÓLAS assumes no responsibility for drafting conditions caused by venting configurations, adjoining trees or buildings, adverse wind conditions or unusual environmental factors and conditions that affect the operation of the unit.
This Limited Lifetime Warranty covers only parts and labor as provided herein.
