Purchased MOSQUITO MAGNET Independence model last year (their most expensive stand alone model), set it up and it ran for about 4 months. After first frost, I put it away and I now that it is June 2012, I brought the unit out of storage and set it up again for the coming summer months.
Put in new batteries, attached the propane, new attractant, turned it on ... and nothing happened. "Dead as a door nail" so I called Customer Service and all the person on the line could ask was "did you put in new batteries?" and then she told me that unless I could produce my original receipt there was nothing the company could or would do for me. I gave her the serial # and again was told there was nothing she could or would do for me.
She suggested I find a local repair location.
I guess $600 is just chump change these days and the company expects the consumer to just pony up more $$ for any repairs .... BTW, when I asked her to talk me through opening up the unit and servicing it myself, I was told they don't do that "because it's a safety hazard." I suggest anyone thinking about purchasing the MOSQUITO MAGNET think twice !!!
