I have a Franzus WA-222 garment steamer that has burned me on a few occasions. It also overheats and cannot be held as it was designed to do. I contacted the company whose parent corporation is Conair. They refused to assist even though the item in under a recall and was previously the subject of a civil cash penalty for selling this defective product, which I was unaware of. Conair refuses to help and after four calls the their customer service, they flat told be it was not of their concern.
