The 6 month limited electrical warranty for Mulex samovars, comes with each purchase. The warranty covers the appliacne to be free from defects and material issues, under normal residential use. The warranty does not cover normal wear of parts or damage resulting from negligent use or misuese of the samovar, contrary to the operating insturctions (see manual). If the Mulex samovars are used, we cannot take them back but will be able to assess the issue and repair it under warranty accepted claims.

Shipping costs for repairs
Please note, that for all warranty issues, the samovar owner is responsible for shipping costs (that includes shipping the item to us, and to have it shipped back to the owner). The cost of shipping can range anywhere from $20-$30. If you wish for us to send you a shipping label, we will charge you a flat $25 for shipping (both ways).
Repair time is completley up to the Mulex team, can range from 1-4 weeks. If all the necessary parts are available in house, often the machine can be fixed within 5 business days. Sometimes, the team has to wait for spare parts to be sent from Germany, which can delay the repair time. Since our Mulex Germany samovars come from Germany, the team is dependent on the overseas team to receive their items and that can take time.
