Urgent - Big Buddy Heater Caution

Recommended Posts

WKSparrow

Just got off the phone with the Mr. Heater company... the new (just released this fall) BIG Buddy heater has been pulled from the store shelves b/c of a potential safety issue... and those who already own them should stop using immediately...

THIS DOES NOT CONCERN THE "LITTLE" BUDDY HEATER - those are fine!!!

Thought I should post this since it's gonna be so cold this weekend.

WK is right, I talked with a rep from Mr. Heater as well and she let me know that they have filed with the Consumer Product Safety Com. about this and were hoping to hear back around Feb. 1 but for the time being you should stop using this unit. Something to do with a valve made in China.

The number on their website is incorrect and the new one is 216-916-3000 so if you own a unit I would suggest calling them to get a on distribution list so they can notify you of the outcome and what you can do to get it fixed/replaced.

I just read this today and called up to my Dad who was at this time (4:20ish pm) and he was backing up to his fish shack on URL to let him know not to use it if he had it. Whew!!!

Good Luck fishing to all and stay warm without the Big Buddy for the time being.
