Following his/her requirement, the Buyer may assert at the Seller’s a claim to have defects removed free of charge or to a reasonable discount off the price not later than within two years of the date of acceptance of the goods; unless it is proportional to the nature of the defect (especially if the defect cannot be removed without undue delay), it is possible to assert the requirement to deliver a new thing without defects or a new part without any defect if the defect relates to that part only.
If it is not possible to repair or replace the goods, the Buyer may require returning the purchase price in full based on the withdrawal from the contract.

The Seller shall not be liable for defects occurred as a result of the common wear and tear or not following the user’s manual.
