V30653 - Duraflame Portable Electric Stove Heater with Remote Control
This was my 3rd heater purchased for a guest room. It doesn't heat and I later discovered it wasn't the same model I purchased before. The 750w/1500w heaters do a great job. Because this heater was in the guest room I didn't learn that it doesn't heat until months later. As you know, repackaging and returning these things is a hassle so I'm stuck with it. Unless I'm doing something wrong, this unit is a total waste of money.
So cute puts out a lot of heat for such a small heater. Can be moved to any room doesn't get hot to touch which is great for kids and animals this fits perfect inside out existing fireplace so we don't have to burn stinky wood and we still get the ambiance!
Not going to last! EXPENSIVE TO RUN
So I bought this unit as a family xmas present. I thought that I could use it in the living area when the kids were at school and husband was at work. So I didn't have to heat all the house. At night I would move it in the kids room so they could stay warm and not get congested by the heater blowing on there faces at night. To my surprise it heated the whole living and kitchen area. Our house heater died a couple of weeks later and this was a life saver. However, I would not recommend this. It is noisy at times, the light burned out after a month. If you have it up all the way it will not shut off unless you turn it down. Problem with turning down is that when it starts back up and then wants to shut down, it makes this cycling sound as if it does not know if it wants to stay on or shut off. Very noisy. The laminate was peeling off the front panel when we opened it. And the biggest deterrent(sp?) is the cost of operating the darn thing. For one month after christmas after the decorations were down I wanted to see what the electricity bill would be like. I know during the december month my bill skyrockets to about $600 to run the decorations. Normally we are $250-$350 in the winter months. Running this heater for a whole month pretty much non stop made the electric bill go over $500. I bought this heater to save money, not to cost me more. Now I am only using it at night in the kids room. Sounds like others have motor issues like mine, so it will be a matter of time before it dies completely. It did keep us warm, I do give it that much.
Disappointed and Cold
I bought this for my office because it's always cold at work. My co-workers were so jealous and teased me about getting a cozy fireplace for the office. Unfortunately, I pulled it out of the box and it would NOT even turn on with or without the remote. Finally got it to come on by reading the troubleshooting guide and I was able to reset the heating element. Then a strong burning smell filled the room and hallway. But I was determined to make it work. I called tech support but that's a joke because they don't answer directly- they have a lady who takes messages and then assigns it out within 48 hours I was told. That doesn't help when I don't live at the office ( well some days). I got the heat to work- but the LOUD LOUD LOUD noise started immediately. It was so loud I could not conduct business as normal with anyone in my office or on the phone. It's in route back - returning to sender. I suggest you go with the model Duraflame 750W/1500W Electric Stove Heater with LED Flame Effect
V31793 • $109.96 - I have it at home and my dog loves it, and so do I. No increase in electricity and I use it daily. It also looks better to the eye if trying to fit into a certain decor. This is no reflection on QVC- I am a QVCFFL Fan For Life
Shuts off frequently
Got this heater to be used in my sons room at night because our wood stove heat does not reach the back of the house. It worked well for about a week and then began shutting itself off. Now that we have had it for about a month and halfe sometimes the blower wont turn on at all. This was a BIG WAIST OF MONEY. :(
fabulous winter warmth
I cannot explain how wonderful this heater has been. I love the look, warmth, and beauty.
I hope to buy another one soon... I did buy one from K-mart and nothing compares to yours'.
If I could, I I would have returned it to K-mart....
WORKED FOR A SHORT TIME
This heater was good while it was working. But after a couple of months, the heater blower stopped working. Too late to return to QVC.
