V30934 - Air Innovations 2-in-1 Stand & Tabletop Whirl Cool Fan
Broke in the second year after warranty expired
In the second summer that we had this, it started working sporadically. Sometimes we could turn it on and sometimes not. It failed after the warranty expired so we had no recourse for return it. I would not buy a product from this manufacturer again.
The best fan ever. Hope it is brought back!
This is an excellent fan. My husband had no problems putting it together as long as you read the instructions carefully. He never likes to have fans on around him, but this one is so different. In fact, he has asked me to write a review because he thinks it is the best.
not worth the money
we have purchased three of these fans. Now the second one is not working at all. We expected these fans to last longer than a couple of months.
I purchased this fan several months ago. For whatever reason I didn't put it together until today. It was very easy to put together. However, when I plugged it in and tried to turn it on it didn't work. Since I am past the 30 day return deadline I guess I will have the call Air Innovations and see if the 1 yr warranty will work to get another fan. I paid alot of money for this fan for it not to even work out of the box. What a disappointment!!!!
Not to QVC Standards
I purchased two of these fans in May as TSV. I have been impressed until recently. One
has developed such a vibration noise you cannot run it at night. I have cleaned it, checked the screws, etc. trying to find where the noise was coming from. Nothing has worked. This would be a GREAT product if the entire unit was a little better made. The idea is
great and I love the stand and the way I can move it around. I don't believe I would ever use it as a tabletop. I have two bedrooms and used both fans every night until now.......the vibration and noise is not constant, but comes and goes to the point of being disturbing. I didn't save the box it came in and I am sure the postage back to Great Innovations in Miramar, Florida would not be worth the return.
Short Life Span
Not sure what is going on, but this is the second Air Innovations I have purchased in two months. The first one performed beautifully for one week and then quit. I called QVC and they were most gracious, paid for return postage and I ordered another one. Now after using it for a little less than two weeks, I went to turn it on last night, and it won't turn on. Not sure what is going on, but now I have ordered the similar style from Bionaire.
This fan is working great for us
I ordered this fan because I was impressed by the presentation, and I wanted to be able to circulate the air (although I have 2 ceiling fans in the room in which I placed it) and decrease my overall air conditioner setting. It's helping me do that. Reading all the other reviews, I hope mine doesn't "develop" any problems, but it certainly is great now. I got the red one, and I even get COMPLIMENTS on my fan. I don't try to set it up so I can "feel" the actual air flow, but just to accentuate the air movement of the ceiling fans. I have been totally able to put the thermostat on higher and my house still stays cooler. I am using it on the stand, and can't imagine using it any other way. This is one "cool" fan!
So it blows bubbles!
I bought two of these because I was so impressed with the presentation. I tried it at different heights, angles, speeds and it just does not create enough of a breeze. I have old box fans that have better power. I hope I can send them back since they are of no use to me! All it is good for is distributing bubbles around a room.
I purchased three of these fans and have been happy with them until today. All of a sudden one of the fans is leaking oil. So far it's still working but I'll have to keep a close eye on it.
Not enough air circulation
My sister has this fan, we were looking forward to using it on a hot day. Well we used it and I was miserable. Did not work good at all in her living room. If you put on high, it is very noisy, so I am so glad I did not buy one for myself.
Cools Really Well
I really like the size of this fan. It's easy to maneuver when you want to change where it's placed. It circulates the air in my apartment living/dining room very well. The only problem is the front grill vibrates when revolving in whirlcool. (It spins the opposite way of the fan to circulate the air.) Not enough to send it back, and it doesn't do it on low and high speeds, but it is noisy. However so far I've just used it on the low speed and it's been great.
I bought two of these fans when it was a TVS. I gave one to granddaughter and kept one. It works great if you can stand the noise. Initially, it was quiet, but now about two months later, it sounds like a small lawn mower..... Too bad time has passed and it cannot be returned.
