Sometimes there is a separate switch to turn on the water pump. No water=no cooling. Check to make sure the cooling pads are wet! If they are completely wet and the fan is blowing it should cool.

I just bought one of these and a friend says there are many applications for use. What else can I use this fan for besides blowing at me directly?


fans are designed to move air only
whether this is at you, around the room, to move hot air from the ceiling, blow fumes away, exhaust an area or what ever
some fans have an accessory where there is a small pump and a spray of water behind the fan but these are specifically designed so that there is no possibility of electrocution from the water contact with the power

Should the blades of a reversible ceiling fan turn clockwise or counterclockwise in the Summer?


Seeing as to how hot air rises and cold air falls, you may get better results with air circulation if you have them blowing upwards (as it will help pull the cooler air up and flow elsewhere.)

I dont understand how the intake and exaust features work, and the temp guages work? i just use max speed ,


mcdevito75 here, The intake and exhaust feature is simply a reversal of the fan motor or motors. On intake all the air is being brought in from the outside to inside your home, this is fine for the spring and fall, but in the summer time when it"s both hot outside and inside your home you"d want to use the exhaust feature to get the hot air out of your home and let fresh air from the outside in. The temperature settings, unless your fan is actually an air conditioner and not a window fan are the fan motor speeds, you set these speeds to suit yourself. If this unit is an air conditioner you can set the teperature aorund 65 degrees or approx. Half way thur the blue sash on the knob or half way between cool and cooler depending on how your teperature settings read.

Clockwise, counterclockwise which is the summer setting?


Ceiling Fan Direction These recommendations depend actually on the height and size of the room; the season; and the activity taking place in the room.

The basic fact of nature is that warm air rises to the top and cold air settles on the bottom. Air settles in layers from warm at the top to cold at the bottom, if left alone at equilibrium.

Ceiling fan recommendations:

In the winter
Set the fan to run counterclockwise (reverse; this looks clockwise as you are looking up). This will redirect the warm air from the ceiling and down the walls and into the living space where the people actually are. In a house, you would run the fan at a low speed so that you don't actually cool the warm air that you are moving downward. If you have a high ceiling, or are trying to heat a hall or a church, you may want to increase the fan speed so that the warm air will reach the living space as long as the fan speed does not create an unwanted downdraft at the people below. In the summer
In a room of normal height (8 - 10 ft), you should operate your fan so that it turns clockwise (this looks counterclockwise as you are looking up), causing a more directed downdraft, especially with the fan running slightly faster. This causes a wind-chill effect because the skin evaporates slight amounts of water from the sweat glands and thereby provides cooling through the skin's surface. However, the air is only moved but not cooled! You may find that you can turn your thermostat down a degree or two and save more money on energy costs. The air blowing down won't actually cool the room though, so you should turn the fan off when there are no people (or animals) in the room. In a high hall or church
It may be best NOT to run the fans at all in summer. This lowers the demand for cooling since the hot layer on top is an excellent insulation between the cool air near the floor (and the people) and the hot roof and outside.

A large, tall manufacturing hall would typically have different goals. There one would have a floor full of heat producing machinery plus the people operating it, working hard and welcoming a bit of a breeze. Then it would make sense to run the fans at fairly high speed to create a certain and directed downdraft. And with the shifts going throughout the days of the week, the fans should be running all the time and maybe in all seasons.

Finally, fans typically use 80-100 watts. When used properly, ceiling fans can really help to optimize the comfort level of the people and save energy and money.

The fan turns on by itself in the middle of the night or very early in the morning....why?


Ghost ?????????????

If the wall power switch or switch in the fan was bad it would run all the time, and not just at certain times.

If there is any air,inside your house, and the air gets warm or cooler
it can make the fan move.

Warm air rises, and when warm air gets cool it falls.

If you don't have any air in your house, post back for this solution.

Wanna know if i can make the air cooler . not sure what the opening in the top of the fan is for. am i supposed to put water in there or something? E


You can not make the air coming out of a fan any cooler, as all a fan is doing is circulating air, (creating a breeze) which in turn makes you feel a little cooler. And no, do not pour water into your fan! Hope this helps

HELP l need instructions for Homebase LF320 air cooler


I have the same unit, also given to me, and there really isn't much to it. Remember, it's an 'air cooler, not an air conditioning unit. Works fine as a floor standing fan on L, M and H settings (lo, med and high) but, if you want the air to cool slightly, freeze the blue ice packs and then put them in the base of the unit and top up with cold water until the level indicator on the front says full (red ball hits red arrow, like in a kettle). Then, turn on as normal and run the 'Cool' function along with your desired fan setting (L, M or H). I tend to add a few extra ice packs. The 'Cool' setting drags a fiber membrane into the water and over the intake surface, thus cooling the air slightly. Nothing like real air con but better than nothing on a day like today. 'Swing' throws the air around a little and 'Mode' gives you bursts of air, and that's about it to be honest...

8 bottle wine cooler unit won't cool


First, see if the fan is actually blowing anything out of it. YOu may have an obstruction. If not that...Generally, there are three reasons that you won't get cooling:
  • The condenser radiating fins on the unit are dirty which won't allow cooling air flow to liquify refrigerant. Clean them.
  • The unit is frozen up inside because of excessive humidity. Defrost the unit by leaving it off and open for a day.
  • The unit is low on refrigerant. Check this by leaving the unit off for one hour. Locate the pipes coming out of the compressor. Turn the unit on. If the larger pipe stays frosted up for more than 15 minutes, you need to get the unit charged.

Shouldn't it be cooler?


Just found at least one problem with mine. I pulled off the back screen and then pulled off the back cover by undoing the two screws at the top. There is a pad in there that rotates through the water reservoir. If this pad doesn't get wet, you won't get any cooling. My pad was bone dry. Turns out the wire for the motor that rotates the pad was disconnected from the front control panel. I reconnected the wire and now the pad rotates through the water reservoir. We'll see how this works.
