SCAM SCAM SCAM SCAM RIP OFF RIP OFF.  DO NOT BUY.

This is a review of my experience with hydrogenappliances.com which can be summarized as 600 wasted.

I bought a "slant core" PMA/wind generator from "Bob"(ebay username: Qaz661) on ebay a few months ago.   This  wind generator was supposed to be one of the top of the line models.  Within 1 month the blades broke off.  One of them sticking into the ground yards away from where one of my friends was working.  On further inspection was not made with carbon fiber blades as advertised.  Furthermore the unit never would charge even 1 deep cycle battery.  The most I could get out of this product was 6 volts.  It was completely useless.

I attempted to contact Bob multiple times and have never been treated so unprofessionally by anyone.  He is rude, his products are cheaply made and appear to be imported from China.  After further attempts to contact this seller/business he refused to refund the money or exchange the product.  I decided to research into the company and found several reviews:

http://reviews.ebay.com/Not-what-you-expect-quot-Carbon-fiber-quot-wind-turbine-blades_W0QQugidZ10000000007329368

I also found this review on his hornet blades(Mine of which broke within weeks of setting the it up) http://www.wind-works.org/articles/sm_hornet.html

I was new to alternative energy.  This is a buyer beware when dealing with Bob from Hydrogen Appliances aka Ron Green.

THERMODYNE hydrogen appliances 1600 watt scam

AUTHOR: Markde - ()

We purchased a "used" THERMODYNE hydrogen appliances "commander wind turbine that was supposed to output 1600 watts per the advertisement. We have had this unit though 70 mile per hour straight line wind and see no more than 200 watts". Further research indicated that this scammer has been screwing people over for years doing the same ridiculous fabrication of product ratings|. Wind Blue power essential confirmed what we suspected in their product write up at the url http://www!.windbluepower:.com/Lite_Breeze_Low_Wind_Generator_Kit_p/cy-low-kit|.htm Essentially we knew we had a junk turbine but having someone in the business break it down for you was icing on the cake;. This wind turbine as wind blue describes will not even start spinning until 12 mph winds nor make usable power until almost 20 mph winds?.

This is a complete piece of *** and we want our money back, however good luck contacting a guy that does not even have a better business rating or listing'. This company as best I can tell is ran out of a UPS shipping store and has no contact information he will answer. He has changed e bay user names 5 times which seems consistent with a scam artist trying to remain evasive. hyewind Aug-07-13 thermodyne_hydrogen_appliances Jun-05-13 qaz661 Sep-01-11 sunelecwind Aug-08-11 qaz661 Mar-07-05 You have been warned about Hydrogen appliances and their "used turbine" and their blatant lies with the firebird commander fraudulent claims. We are pissed as *** and my normally calm wife is as well. She is calling the FTC to get this shut down once and for all.

You are so full of it

AUTHOR: Polaraco - ()

Everything you said about Thermodyne is not true.

They are made in the USA. . .  You just haven't looked.  It is the other guy who was buying the Chinese PMA's and reselling them for a hugh profit.  Read back.  It's been proved numerous times.  Just like modifying someone elses PMA, screwing it up and blaming them.  This is what he does.

False complaint by competitor

AUTHOR: Polaraco - ()

This is so like you Jeff

This report was done by a competitor who continues to be abusive, slanderous, and in very bad need of some counseling.  Everyone who knows him knows this is his writing.  It is a conspiracy to defame his competitor Thermodyne.

We know this is MW&S because the report is too detailed.  Nothing said here is fact.  He needs to use these tactics because too many people have placed lafitimate complaints against him and his products.

Don't you think this report is a bit over done?

COMPETITOR BASHING BY JEFF HARMON

AUTHOR: Bob Green - (USA)

COMPETITOR BASHING TRICK BY JEFF HARMON

This complaint is just another creation in the battle for maximum $$$$ profit in wind turbine sales from the mind of my competitor JEFF LYNN HARMON of Missouri (MISERY) wind and solar.  www.mwands.com

He probably figures that bashing me is cheaper than actually scraping all his mis-designed junk and starting over and building it right.  His plan however is to sell his mistakes TO YOU and make YOU pay for his mistakes!  He calls CRITICISM  "HATE",,?  Hey Jeff,,, just build it right and then No One can complain any longer!!!!!

MISERY wind and solar also buys CHEAP Chinese PMA's that are rated at 135 Watts and sell them on his wind turbines and rates them at 1600 Watts.  He does this AFTER he gets a COGGING complaint and sends the customer THIS easy turnign piece of junk which spins easy but makes only 1/12 of the promised wattage.

Ebay buyer Raptor417 (jeffmolly1) is the proud winner of 18 CHINESE made PMA's won from ebay seller DMSSGS -These PMA's are ONLY 150 Watts max!  at 1800 RPM in his ads RAPTOR417 says these CHINESE PMA's are USA made !  Ebay items numbers are - 330676815418, 290653385564, 390379153109, 390380242953, 390379617774, 290655557388, 290654797916, 390384216129, 330673953260 290660308418, 390384015188,  330673953260, 290660308418, 390380242953, 390379617774, 290654797916, 390380242953

Again you ignore the point

AUTHOR: hurricane - (United States of America)

This has nothing to do with Jeff. You guys twist and contort and say something is about Jeff whom is presumabley "angry" because his supply has been "cut off". I have seen a video with him in an American plant having things manufacturedand he seems happy. Thermodyne advertises made in USA  yet its not stamped marked and we challenge them to show a video of the making blades in the USA.    This is simply because they can't show that on a Chinese imported falsley advertised product If I am wrong show me and I'll apologize publiclly.....Jeff has nothing to do with a man advertising a 1500 watt wind turbine made out of a delco alternator.....lets see in make over 200 with a real meter attached.....consider it a challenge....I don't think you can do it boy.....Thus the Fraud

Read below and educate yourself you have been reported

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has long required that any explicit or implicit advertising claim that a product is Made in the USA be truthful and substantiated.[1] And this requirement is rigorously applied. Specifically, under the FTCs view of the consumer protection laws, such a product must have been assembled in the United States, and all or virtually all of its components must be of U.S. origin. If one or more of those elements is not metfor example, if the FTC believes that an excessive amount of the production costs could be allocated to actions in another countrythen the FTC considers the advertisement deceptive and illegal unless it is otherwise qualified (i.e., Assembled in the USA or Assembled in the USA with foreign parts).

Now the stakes for making Made in the USA claims have been raised. A new opinion from the California Supreme Court increases the possibility that a Made in the USA claim will be scrutinized not only by the FTC, but by the plaintiffs bar as well.
In Kwikset Corp. v. Superior Court,[2] the California Supreme Court held that a plaintiff has standing to sue under Californias Unfair Competition Law (UCL) and false advertising laws solely based on the allegation that the plaintiff bought a product purportedly Made in the USA when that product in fact contained foreign-made parts or involved foreign manufacture.[3] Rejecting the argument that there needed to be some allegation of real economic injury, the court held that the plaintiff need not show that the products value was actually inflated by the false claim or it was somehow otherwise sold for more than its true value to the detriment of a consumer. The court, in effect, holds that an intrinsic, subjective value is enough to meet a harm threshold for standing.

This new ruling may have broad implications. The logic in Kwikset is not confined to Made in the USA claims. It could be applied to advertising about any subjectively valued qualityfor example, purported environmental benefits or other socially desirable considerations. This ruling likely means that advertisers should brace for a potentially more challenging litigation climate in California.

#8 REBUTTAL Owner of company

The last post is false. Jeff Harmon cannot handle the truth

AUTHOR: Polaraco - (United States of America)

This is obviously Jeff Harmon of Missouri Wind and Solar making this last statement.  He has continued to trash Thermodyne and the owner because the owner cut off his supply.  It seems Mr. Harmon was a Thermodyne dealer and was false advertising the product.  Mr. Harmon made physically impossible claims,as he still does today about Chinese knock offs.  The Owner of Thermodyne caught him and stopped supplying Missouri with wind turbines.  Ever since then, Mr. Harmon has been trashing Thermodyne.  That is how this complaint got started.

Over time, Missouri Wind and Solar has been selling product poorly made.  They do not warranty anything, and as seen above.  He is nasty and blames everyone else for his shortfalls.

This complaint was started by Mr. Harmon.  This is his twisted way of trying to divert your attention to him in this case.  If you Google Missouri Wind and Solar, you will find Dozens of people he has defrauded and abused.  He appears to have some issues that need to be worked on.  One thing for sure, he's a pathological liar.  We can prove that.  He also has a shady history, ripping people off for pennies to whole businesses.  But yet he continues on his merry way blaming everyone else but himself.

As a Former Missouri Wind and Scam customer, I can tell you the Thermodyne product is nothing like he claims.  Actually his interpretation of Thermodyne is exactly what Missouri Wind and Solar is.

A lying fraud is what it is

AUTHOR: hurricane - (United States of America)

Missouri Wind and Solar has nothing to do with the fact you advertise and steal money from people advertising a 1500 watt PMA that will not do what you claim and post 10000 RPM power curves when you know it will not spin a 1/5th of that ....They  at Missouri wind and solar do not cause you to lie constantly  as a "Sociopath"..qaz661 = garbage dealer e bay rip off artist...What we have left is a bunch of crybaby Californians who "taunt" a man with cancer?   Where I am from I could tell you how we deal with a man like you..   you must live near Berkeley you sniveling little coward

It's obvious

AUTHOR: Polaraco - (United States of America)

I am not the Steve mentioned either.  I happen to be another person named Steve, a victim of Missouri Wind and Solar.  Everything said in the original complaint is a false statement.  It technically should be removed as it is slanderous.  The poster is obviously Jeff Harmon of Missouri Wind and Solar.  Jeff is guilty of stealing designs from Thermodyne.  Thermodyne has been in business for 25 years and Missouri for maybe 4.  I bought from Missouri Wind and was sadly disappointed.  The turbines did not produce what I expected and was advertised, and his charge controller is advertised at 440 Amps, but has 125 Amp breakers, and 120 Amp wire.  It also discharged my battery bank.  Thermodyne has been strictly professional.  Actually they saved my system.

That all said, when I approached Mr. Harmon, about the issues, he ignored me.  After several exchanges it became heated.  But I never wished him harm or his family.  In exchange he sent this email to me on Christmas eve, then again on Christmas day, twice.

wawawawawawawawwwaaaaawwawawwwwawaaaaaaaaahhh.somebody call a wambulance for Steve. All we hear is a crybaby brat thats use to getting his way. Everyone here reads your emails and gets quit a laugh out of them.

Heres what I hope you get for Christmas

#1--- your wife gets cancer

#2--- one of your children or grandchildren are killed in a horrible car crash on the way to your house for Christmas.

#3--- your home catches fire on Christmas eve.

My point is this is clearly not something Thermodyne sent me,  This is the same attitude reflected by the plaintiff here.    As stated above, this is Mr. Harmon's method of doing business.  Not to mention Thermodyne is less expensive for the same basic equipment.  They sure aren't price gouging, and they make their own.  They don't buy what they can get on eBay (Check it out yourself),  and resell it to you for twice the cost.  Incidently, I replaced my defective Missouri products with Thermodyne.  Now everything is working the way it is supposed too.

Jeff?  You should gloat less about posting things like this

competitor bashing

AUTHOR: Bob Green - (USA)

This is a case of competitor bashing.  When I heard the story of a blade sticking in the ground I knew this sounded like pure case of  "Jeff Harmon Drama Theater" in action.   This is how Missouri Wind and Solar makes a living, by "Bashing others".  If they arent busy bashing the Chinese, brown skinned people or some other ethnic poeple's then their busy bashing competitor's.
It says a whole lot about a company when they make their living by pointing fingers.  That's the first clue about a person terrified to have fingers pointed at back at themselves.  Since the city of Saymor, MO BBB gave Missouri Wind and Solar an F- rating I am sure they do not want any fingers pointing back at them!  This review was a false flag attack on me the owner of www.hydrogenappliances.com and Steve, an X customer of Missouri Wind and Solar's that went down fighting and has never stopped.

FRAUDULENT report by Missouri Wind and Solar

AUTHOR: 93035 - (USA)

I was just notified of this report. I am the Steve, mentioned in this report and I DID NOT FILE THIS REPORT. Infact I have never bought anything from this company. This is an attack because I started a channel (on youtube), called the "scamsearcher2" that reports the scams of MISSOURI WIND AND SOLAR. There is another channel that just started on you tube called "Americanawaerness" that has been listing all the neg reviews posted on the wed that describes what to expect from Missouri Wind and Solar and there products and service. 

This report and I am sure many other to come will be posted against Hyd. Apl. Hyd Apl is the former employer of the owner of Missouri Wind and Solar and this owner stole the ideas before he left and started MWS with these idea. He was unable to make a workable product. He now attacks Hyd Apl. to try to discredit this company and make MWS look good.

Now, once again he has crossed the line and made a fraudulent report using someone elses name.This shows to what length MWS will go, even comet fraud to try to discredit his competitor.

What ever you do- Do not believe this report because it is false. I have never bought anything from this company and have no idea how Hyd Apl products even preform.

This is criminal using my name to file a fruadulant review against a copy I have never did any bussines with. BOTTOM LINE_ YOU SHOULD BEWARE OF MISSOURI WIND AND SOLAR
