Questions & Answers
QuestionI bought this fan and there is a fuse in the plug portion of the cord. The fuse is similar to those found in a christmas light strand. Will it operate without the fuse? Who sells the fuses and where can I get another fuse if it goes bad.
- Answer I have the same fan, although I did not get it at Best Buy. If the fuse blows, I would not recommend cutting off the plug and replacing it with a non-fused one. While the fan would work, it could cause a potential fire hazard if the fan motor becomes overheated or jammed. This type of fuse is found in the plugs of many small appliances these days. While they can be tricky to find in your local hardware or auto store, when mine blew, I was able to find replacements in less than 5min of searching online. The specifications for this fan are 125V 5A fuse, The size is 3.6x10mm. (0.14 x 0.39in) Since many small appliances are now using this type plug, I bought a box of 10 so I'm prepared for future blow-outs. Good Luck!
- Answer YES THE WHOLE BODY IS METAL. I WOULD GO WITH THE GUNMETAL THOUGH.. IT'S A DENSER METAL AND BLOWS A BIT HARDER THAN THE SILVER FAN.
- Answer Yes, you can pull or push a knob to make it oscillate even while it’s running. The fan makes an almost complete half circle sweep. I highly recommend it!
- Answer no assembly required.
QuestionI am in need of a new fan and this one caught my eye. I used plastic fans but i am wondering since this fan is metal does it have a longer life span and a plastic counter part?
