Stetzer Electric's Stetzerizer Filters are Hazardous

DANGEROUS PRODUCT CONSUMER WARNING: Now under investigation by the FTC and Underwriters Laboratory! Stetzer Electric Inc.'s Stetzerizer Filters (especially their power strips/surge suppressors) have been shown to be dangerous, catch fire and emit toxic chemicals and fumes which will damage your health. A California couplewere unlucky enough to have experienced the hazardous Stetzerizer first hand when the device caught fire in their home early one morning while they were sleeping. They were exposed to high levels of cancer-causing toxic particles and fumes. Their house could have been destroyed. Stetzerizer Filters, filtered power strips - also known as "surge protectors" allegedly help eliminate electrical pollution and they are supposed to protect your equipment and home from electrical surges. The filters are also supposed to help you save money on your electric bills. At least that's what the company's distributors tell people but there is no evidence that such a claim is true. Even though the couple reported the defective device to owner Dave Stetzer himself on the day of the incident, it took a full four months of efforts to get him to tell his insurance company about it. What happened next was a horror story. Mr. Stetzer then accused his victim of trying to extort him when the fellow said Stetzer should take responsibility and take care of any present or future medical bills. Stetzer's insurance companies which are ignoring the incident are Acuity Insurance and John Glenn Adjusters (now merged with George Hills Company). Quite recently, Mr. Stetzer and Mr. Glenn told the victim that even though the unit nearly killed the couple and burned down their home, they would be happy to send him a new STETZERIZER. Both the FTC - Federal Trade Commission consumer division and Underwriters Laboratory have been notified of the incident and are investigating Stetzer Electric.

This poster is on YouTube and has made a career of suing people. He overloaded his strip with everything in his trailer. Classic example of trailer trash....

These filters have saved many lives. I have witnessed leukemia and diabetes vanish once the dirty electricity was cleaned up.

The awesome thing about these miserable people on here that don't use them and bad mouth Dave, is that the last laugh will be on them as they find themselves slowly get sick and ultimately find the grave.

IF YOU HAVE WIRING ERROR AS SOME HOMES DO the shunting will create a potentially very strong magnetic field possibly engulfing entire rooms. Imagine all the people with wiring errors using stetzerizers that have not been informed of this before hand despite them knowing about this serious issue....

and

Stetzer filter draws 0.9 amperes of reactive current on its own therefore increasing the amount of current supplied to the home, and increasing ambient magnetic field levels in the house.

i use a non capacitive device for Dirty electricity removal called PxDNA from dirtyelectricityremoval . com which only need 1 or 2 units , was recommended by a building biologist.

Building Biologists don't teach how to mitigate a home of dirty electricity. They address dirty magnetic fields which have zero science backing their claim.

Looks like your post is an advertisement for an over priced very expensive filter.

This started as and was, is and remains a ploy to extort money from this company. The 'wife' was a paid actress and nothing was paid out because the insurance company investigated throughly and found fraud.

the case was dismissed.

Stetzerisers are UL approved and have been working successfully in schools, libraries and other public buildings for years. As far a reduction in electric bills, it depends on the initial accuracy of the meter reading. the more high frequency transmitted, the less accurate the meter reading.

So one person may have a big reduction as their Stetzerizer filters the high frequency off the line and someone else will have little to no reduction because their meter was reading more accurately from the start.

I do not work for this company nor do I have any financial interest.

I just use them and know companies who use them and have had great results. Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

Sounds like a witch hunt from a competitor.

The *** at Stetzer electic never did anything to help the victims of their fraud. That should tell you something about this *** company!!!! Don't buy their *** filters - save a life.

Please, please, please do not buy these horrible devises! The surge protector almost burned down our house( with my husband and 4 pets in it!) we had the device for about 2 years- along with about a dozen filters and it was only used for less than a year.

We had 1 computer plugged in to it along with an airport. That's it, and it blew out.

I thank a God that my husband was home to call the fire department otherwise- both our 4 adored pets and our beautiful home might be gone. Tell everyone you know!!!!!!

So the healthy108 imbecile who added a link to his comment saying fire debunked writes on his site"I saw a number of power strips fail. It was a relatively small number - only a handful of units.

The units would either stop working, or a burning smell was detected and the unit was removed, or worst case the filter would melt a small hole in the housing."

HEY IMBECILE! that PROVES that the above report is CORRECT and that the stetzer filters caught fire!!!

@krimshaw

Yes, I too saw that the healthy108 commentator says he's a personal FRIEND of Dave Stetzer then he admits (knows for a fact) that the stetzer units fail and burn and then he goes on to bash a website negative to stetzer electricity. healthy108 is crazy. healthy108 also says the burned units emit burning smells, all proving that what is said in this report about stetzer electric power strips being dangerous is TRUE TRUE TRUE!
