I don’t own any rental properties (mostly just rehabbs & flips) so please take this advice at face value. What exactly are you worried about, the insert causing a fire, if so why not spend the $75-$100 to have it cleaned and checked out. If its an issue with someone getting burned (children for example), I would just have the tenant sign a CYA letter, stating that thess units can be dangerous if not used properly, you suggest not using the unit, but if they do they take sole responsibility for their actions. (something to that effect-I’m not an attorney). Good Luck.
