  1. I purchased the Morphon 15 x 15 Swing Away on Amazon as an X’mas gift for my niece. The heating platen failed after just a few uses and in early Feb I contacted Morphon for service. Morphon replied that their China facility was on spring break for a week to email them back to have them order a replacement part. When I told them it was their responsibility Morphon said find a local repair center and pay them to repair it and they would pay me back. Yeah! Really?

    So I emailed Morphon back how would a repair center get the part at which point they said they would order one. But despite repeated requests Morphon would not provide a delivery date. So then I asked them to either replace the whole unit or take a part from one of the units they were selling with immediate stock availability. Morphon did not respond. So I filed a claim on Amazon. Then Morphon asked me to withdraw my claim and they would refund my money. I told them that if they would refund my money first and provide a pre-paid return label I would withdraw the claim.

    Morphon’s response was that if they did that, then it would give them a bad mark on Amazon and to trust them. Morphon wnet on to say that they had refunded 100’s of claims and this was just a small amount of money so I should trust them. Despite the obvious that the product must have a lot of problems to have had to provide 100’s of refunds, I did it. As you can guess Morphon never refunded the money and has failed to respond to repeated emails. I then reopened the claim with Amazon and they came back and said since the claim was not filed within 30 days of shipment, they were closing the claim. I appealed and asked them why they would allow a vendor to continue to sell products when the company is falsely advertising a one year warranty it cannot honor, that in violation of Amazon’s policy Morphon requested that a claim be withdrawn before they would provide a refund and now is not responding at all to emails. Amazon said that they understood my concerns but their decision still stood and that they wold not reply to further emails. So much for Amazon’s integrity and consumer support.

    I am now left with the choice of pursuing legal action or eating the $300+ investment.

    DO NOT BUY FROM MORPHON. They sell inferior product, have no ability to stand by the warranty. Moprhon’s strategy is to delay, lie and deceive to avoid having to fill their obligation and to avoid negative publicity.

    I have a WORD document with all the email chains in it for anyone that would be interested to read it and see that what I have written here is the full truth.
