I actually have three I have purchased over the years from Warehouse Deals. These are good quality and the wide base of them makes them safer against tipping over.

The third one was from this deal, and it arrived with the manual in a bag, power cord neatly wrapped, but not in the manufacturer box.

Amazon seems to have at least 15 of these in stock, I think they got a bunch of refurbs all at once, not just random returns.

Here is a prior expired Home Depot deal for the same model in white for $15. Looks like it was YMMV.

You're a day late and a dollar short.

These were 20% extra off during the Amazon Prime Days this week.

I just read the Home Depot thread on this. Someone said a review claimed it doesn't have switch off when tipped. Yes it does.

Someone else said this has a mechanical switch that makes it compatible with smart homes. I don't understand that and don't have a smart home, but could be useful.

"Used-Acceptable" condition is always a crapshoot. I will no longer buy anything from Warehouse that's not Used-Good or better. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me a dozen times... I stop buying Used-Acceptable junk!

dougef: There is a "new and used from $18.05" linkto the right of the product photo. If you click there, all sellers will be visible and you can select Amazon Warehouse.

ruouttaurmind: I agree it can be a crapshoot, but mine arrived two days ago. Other than lacking the OEM box, it appeared to be in brand new condition.

I had this unit. It was recalled and I got the latest generation one for free which was nice. Looks a lot better than these. Regardless, they had me cut the cord and send in a picture. It was a good heater when I used it though.

With stuff like space heaters (and I have bought a lot of them from Warehouse Deals) there is almost no connection at all between listed condition and actual condition except that a "like new" one will usually come in the original box.

I have received "like new" heaters that have notes from the previous owners describing the issues ("sparks when running" was one of them), or that are entirely DOA out of the box, or that contain a low quality used substitute that the person who returned it foisted on Amazon.

And I have bought "acceptable" ones that come in a sealed box, although the box was banged up a bit.

Used acceptable means 50/50 someone did a switch-a-roo

I've received used-like new items that were junk now on more than one occasion. I stopped buying warehouse deals all together
