1.0 out of 5 stars Can melt down and catch fire.
By Jeff Jones on November 17, 2018
Used this heater very little for about 4 years. Worked pretty good when I needed it. Well the other day it melted down and caught some things in my garage on fire. Lucikly I was able to put the fire out but it caused A LOT of damage. A fire inspector will be out Monday. It never tripped the breaker and just continued to melt down.

1.0 out of 5 stars Failed after less than 3 months, Dr. Heater refuses to honor warranty UPDATE: they made an exception for me and chose honor
By Starcraft on March 14, 2016
Original review:
This unit failed after less than 3 months. The fan stopped working, and the heater coils get extremely hot and started smoking. I emailed the company a picture of the non-working fan and they replied with an offer to send a replacement part that MIGHT fix the problem, at my expense. They claim that they have a 3-year warranty to cover parts and labor. When I asked them to honor that warranty, they asked for an invoice. I sent them the invoice and haven't heard back. They are ignoring my emails and refuse to honor the warranty. Terrible product and terrible company.

The attached photo shows proof that the unit has power and the fan isn't working.

UPDATE:
The company contacted me again and said the following:
"I believe one of our staff may have given you some incorrect information earlier. Let me offer some clarification. The DR-988 and the DR-966 heaters only come with a one year warranty. The three year warranty applies only to a select number of our models. Also, our policy is that we will replace a heater ONLY if that heater has a serious defect or malfunctions within 30 days of purchase. Our 1 or 3 year warranty means that either the part or the service of the heater is free within that time period. If you want the fan motor to replace yourself, we can offer the part for free. There is a $15 Shipping/handling charge (due to the weight of the part). The other option we offer is free service. That means, we can inspect and repair your heater free of charge. We would also send the heater back to you at our cost. However, you are responsible for shipping the heater back to us.

Because of the misunderstanding earlier, I can offer you a free prepaid FedEx Shipping Label to send the heater back to us for service. Essentially, the entire process here will be free for you. We will bring the heater back, replace the faulty part(s), and send the heater back to you after we have re-tested the heater for performance."

5.0 out of 5 stars Cost-effective, quality heating solution
By Matt on October 20, 2018
I was researching a cost-effective way to heat my two car, attached garage during the winter. My goal is to keep the garage above 50 degrees during the central Illinois winters to allow proper function of beer fridge and melting of snow and ice on vehicles. I have wired a receptacle and installed the heater. I have been very happy with the function of the heater so far. I keep the temperature gauge at the lowest setting and it has been keeping my garage around 55-60 degrees with outside temperatures in the 30s and 40s. The heater does not seem to be running very often and the blower is blowing very strong and circulates air.

I have seen some negative reviews regarding blower motor going out so I have chosen to elevate my heater to keep it away from dust/dog hair. While it makes me nervous to have it close to the wall and ceiling, this is where it will reside for now. I will update if I have any issues in the future.

How I wired:
Supplies: 50 ft of 10-2 electrical copper interior wire, 1 30A dual pole breaker, 1 existing construction dual gang pvc electrical box, 1 NEMA 6-30R receptacle, Dual Gang Wall Plate for receptacle.

Install Parts Cost: Approximately $75, depends on the amount of wire needed. Wire is the largest cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little gem
By Scott E. Mayer on February 15, 2018
This little gem was delivered yesterday, plugged it in this morning and it’s been working the last six hours I cannot tell you how pleased I am. I only wish I had 220 outlets throughout the main house.
I have a detached 500sq foot insulated garage/gym/shop and it heats the entire room up in minutes. The thermostat is doing a great job keeping the space at 64 degrees (my comfort zone) it could easily keep it warmer if I would like, outside temp is 38.
