We bought a big salamander style shop heater... suppose to have the ability to use several types of fuel. Well day one and we couldn't stand the smoky exhaust and the soot it was putting out. We loaded it back up after feeling sick and headed to the store. Whats the problem she asked? Told her. Well we can't return it if it's had flammable liquids in it. hmmm.. you should have tested it before using fuel. WHAT?!? And how does one test a fuel style heater... with no... wait for it... FUEL???

I swear you only need a pulse to get a job here. So we went to Home Depot and bought another one. Jumped thru Menards warranty repair hoops for two months and it's fixed now. Now that it's spring and we have another heater. Still cant return. We never needed two heaters. But that's what we got with Menards. Two heaters for the price of two. With one out of commission for 60 days. And running all over town to and from the repairman.

We've been cured now of shopping here.

Reviewer is in unhappy mood. This person is quite happy with leaving the store and rebate program and stated that there is a room for improvement of unhelpful customer service representatives and quality of products sold. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss damaged or defective of heater and associated monetary loss in the amount of $250. Menards needs to offer any options to resolve the issue according to poster's claims.

Other people also mentioned heater in their reviews. You may find this information helpful for further shopping at Menards.

Menards has a no return policy - period - on anything that has had oil or gasoline placed in it after purchase. They certainly aren't sold to you that way and you know it. As pointed out, it is up to YOU to educate yourself about these things which vary from establishment to establisment, else you be finding out about it at the return counter when you try to screw them out of paying for seasonal use item that you tried to return after using it...

Hey ***....I didn't try to return it after using it in a seasonal fashion.

It's still cold in the Midwest and we use the Home Depot one even in April. It never ending worked. It's a little hard to ensure a product that runs on petroleum works properly before filling it with fuel.

After two winter months they finally have it repaired under warranty.That's helpful, had to go buy another one while that POS was getting fixed.

Another clueless consumer.....If you opened up a business and people returned items left and right costing you money because they were using you as a free rental shop or were a totally clueless person and destroyed the item do you think you would stay in business long?

Unless you have worked for a home improvement store for years you have no idea what it's really like. Return policy's are in place to protect Menards from people trying to constantly take advantage of them. It's up to the consumer to educate themselves on the policies before they make a purchase. Home Depot has similar policies.

Home Depot hires people just like Menards. Home Depot is no better.

One day you will eventually get angry at them then stomp your feet like a child and cry all the way to Menards....And the cycle continues...........

Actually Home Depot turned a piece of *** heater with no questions asked.Do you work at menards or why so defensive????

If menards wanted us to know it was sooty smoking BEFORE using petroleum they are asking the impossible.

And they should train clerks to point this ridiculous *** out at the checkout.Saving us from buying from them.

Ppl buy cheap bulls hit all the time.If you don't want cheap bulls hit don't spend cheap bulls hit prices.

It's pretty simple.

If I wanted a chainsaw I'd research the best brand and buy that one but others just wanted the cheapest shut they can find and that's all they are worried about, that's your own fault for that.No one elses, grow up.

You are missing the point.I expect half this *** made in China to fail.

That's a whole other argument about quality. This issue is with the *** return policy.

Wow.

Your comment to grow up is ever so helpful.Hopefully that's not your parenting style as well as your consumer style.

The heater from home depot is running like a top, as the original posting indicated the heater from Menards is the lemon by poor exhaust design or manufacturing flaw and most likely exposing the customer to inhale carbon monoxide based on the complaint.The cashier's and managements response to a product exposing the public to deadly health risks.............

no returns once you attempt to test it. Don't be surprised though, this is the same company that had a customer fatally injured when he was crushed by an overloaded, unbalanced, and improperly placed pallet of floor tiles placed high in pallet racking in an aisle open to the public during regular business hours............

whats the employees response to the situation, blame the wife for not pushing her husband out of the way during the millisecond the pallet was teetering prior to crashing onto the victim.Menards employees pass the buck whenever possibly no matter how nonsense the excuse sounds, take your business elsewhere
