Heater + Tripod ~ 1500 Watt ~ Infrared Space Heater ~ Garage and Patio
Previous posted review contained incorrect star rating. Definitely NOT 5 stars.
Same problem as defined in a previous review. Problem started when couldn’t turn the unit off. 1-2 weeks after turning on/off simply by plugging in and unplugging respectively, just stopped working. The initial problem (not turning off) is a fire hazard.....think this unit requires a safety recall.
Purchased this unit from an online retailer and within a month the product is inoperable. It started with me not being able to turn the unit off. The rocker switch always rebounded to the "on" position as if some internal spring had malfunctioned. So what do I do? I unplugged it! No biggie, right? Well, the next morning I plug it in, and nada, nothing, zilch! The online retailer didn't bat an eye at refunding me my money as if they'd know about this issue. Furthermore, they told me to dispose of the item. They didn't want it back. HUH?
I have been looking for a heater for my garage so I could work out there in the cold Wisconsin winter. It’s unrealistic to heat the entire garage (and to do so would require an expensive-to-install 220v heater or a natural gas heater). This guy is perfect. The tripod is well thick and rock solid — made in America. The heater is quality and when I am in front of it, I’m toasty. It’s the perfect solution. I highly recommend. Only drawback is that the assembly instructions could have been clearer. But it's great.
Excellent product. Second one I purchased because the first one was so good
