>> Instead of complaining, why don't you guys send them back to the guy who sold them to you?
Because, like someone already posted... We got what we paid for. When you buy cheap from a foreign shipper, you accept some level of risk. I think we just need to take our $35 lessons.
Further, in my case, at least, the stove hasn't actually failed. It functions fine for my intended purpose (so far). I'm disappointed, but not complaining. I just appreciate the heads up from others who have had issues.
Given the sellers resistance to refunding other peoples orders, I'm guessing returning and expecting a refund is probably not in the cards. In all fairness, I doubt the seller knew of the issue when he put together the sale, either.
