How did I get this item repaired?

I have had this about 4 years and don't have the receipt.
Asked by: Anonymous
Home Depot was kind enough to exchange 2 for me but #3 is sitting in shop with a kinked cable. I was unable to secure the MFG Warranty but I did try. Each of mine only worked a few times successfully then went south. I believe the manufacturers web site has a way to send in for repair estimates but you may find the cost leaves you needing another unit unless it is something small like a switch.

Auto-Clean K-30 Sink, Tub and Shower Drain Cleaner is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 200.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not As Advertised The K-30 claims to have a 30' cable length but falls roughly 3' short of that. I needed to clean out a 27' drain pipe and was only able to get 23.5' into the drain pipe. The blockage is towards the tail end of the drain pipe so I was unable to unplug the last 3'. I wish I would of purchased a different drain snake but it's to late now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Paid for itself I had two clogged drains- a basement shower and the kitchen sink. I brought up a big hairball about 5' down the shower and a bunch of sludge in the kitchen. The machine worked great and it has already paid for itself on day 1.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexperienced Plumber Once initial set up is complete and you read the instructions, it does a fine job. Far exceeds the manual sneak cleaners. LOVE the guide hose and the auto-feed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I am really good about unclogging any drain with a super hard coned rubber plunger, but this time... I am really good about unclogging any drain with a super hard coned rubber plunger, but this time. Our bathroom sink was draining slow for 2 months, no matter what we tried from plunging to cleaners, nothing would unclog it, even taking the drain apart and trying manual snakes, no luck! Well for $130 bucks this little machine was cheaper than having a plumber come for just one time would have cost this much anyway. I took this machine out of the box and removed the drain for a better clearance and poof, I think it went down about 8 feet and I pulled up a dryer sheet block holding hair and keeping everything draining down at a snails pace, but Auto-Clean K-30 did the job first shot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD SO FAR Ridgid is a solid name in tools and equipment. The reason I purchased the Auto-Clean /K-30 is I can no longer operate the hand cranked drain cleaner or the drill operated drain cleaner. I have only used this item once but that one time (**IT PAID FOR ITSELF**) Getting to the clog was simple as stepping on the floor control and pressing the thumb control on the wand, rewinding was the problem it took forever. Had to do a bit of pulling on the cable to help it rewind.

I've been in the plumbing trade for 17 yrs now and always relied on my handheld Rigid drain cleaner. After seeing some of the positive reviews on this machine I decided to give it a try. I purchased one yesterday and had a customer with a clogged tub so this was the perfect test and must say it worked GREAT! 10 mins later I was done with the clogged drain. Only con I would say is that the feed is a bit slow but its fine by me.
