Question about Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I purchased a Coleman model 564 cooler about june 1,2008 at Wal-mart. I used it for two trips to Canada,June and August,one week each. The fan operates spasmodically and the unit does not cool. I believe the unit will not work in a non-pristine environment, it appears a small amount of dust makes the fan inoperable.THE .35 AMP 12v DC motor made in China does not do the job.This is my 2nd Coleman cooler,model 564,the first being a model 5640. The results are the same. I have two really nice looking coolers and neither one works.George H.Holdren 1215 State Rte 254 Millville Pa.

    one month of use and the Chinese fan melted

  • truckerllew Apr 01, 2009

    I have had the cooler about 6 months. It operates in a tractor trailer in a moderate dusty environment. I think the fan burned out. It has had a problem with buildup of ice during humid weather as well. I first noticed a problem when I began to smell hot wiring. I thought it might have been the cord but upon closer inspection I noticed the fan wasn't moving. I believe the motor has burned out. I have lost the receipt so I cannot return it to walmart or turn it in for warranty work. I have gone to the coleman website but i dont know what parts to get. Should I purchase all the electronics or just the motor?

I had the same problem with the fan...its junk.. don't try to replace it with the same kind of fan. I went to radio shack and got a 3.15"square brushless fan. You could go to a computer store and get the 3 &5/8" fan with ball bearings and it would fit just like the old one. Fans run about $15 to $20 depending on location. I cut the old one out and sodered the new one in and it works fine now. Hope this helps. Larry Crockett at crockett2242@yahoo.com Let me know how it works.

Who invented loom bands


Rainbow Loom was created by Cheong Choon Ng, a Malaysian immigrant of Chinese descent who came to the United States in 1991 to attend Wichita State University, where he earned a graduate degree in mechanical engineering.[1][5] He was employed as a crash-test engineer for Nissan Motor Company in 2010 when he conceived the idea of a toy loom for rubber-band crafting while watching his young daughters make rubber-band jewelry. His prototype, which he called Twistz Bandz,[6] used a wooden board, pushpins, and dental hooks.[2] Encouraged by his family to market the product commercially,[1] he invested $10,000 and found a factory in China to manufacture the parts, which he and his wife assembled in their home in June 2011.[7] Ng renamed his product after discovering an elastic hair band on the market named Twist Band. His brother and niece came up with the name Rainbow Loom.[5]
Efforts to sell the loom online and in toy stores were unsuccessful, however, because customers did not understand how to use the product.[1][7] Ng started a website and filmed instructional videos featuring his daughters and niece.[7] In summer 2012, Ng received his first store orders from franchises of Learning Express Toys, a specialty crafts chain, and sales picked up.[1] In June 2013 arts and crafts retail chain Michaels test-marketed the product in 32 stores; by August the chain was carrying Rainbow Loom in its 1,100 U.S. locations.[7] Rainbow Loom is also sold at Mastermind in Canada and in specialty stores.[5] As of August 2013, 600 retailers were selling Rainbow Loom at a retail price of $15 to $17.[1] The kits are manufactured in China, and Ng supervises distribution out of a 7,500 square feet (700 m2) warehouse near his home.[1]
In 2013, Ng worked with The Beadery and Toner Plastics to produce the Wonder Loom, a redesigned version of the Rainbow Loom that is made in the United States. The Wonder Loom is sold by Wal-Mart.[8] In April 2014, a travel-sized version of the Rainbow Loom was released called the Monster Tail.[9][10]

In reference to the Coleman Lantern/fan/radio #841-321 .....where is the battery compartment located? where can I purchase an adapter since this one is missing?


Type this URL in the box- http://www.fixya.com/support/t955738-coleman_lantern_fan_am_fm_radio. As for the adapter, you should probably check the camping section or electronics section of Wal-Mart or, you can call customer support for Coleman. Their phone number is 1-800-835-3278. Ebay, Amazon or other online shopping companies might have the adapter in stock. Hope this helps.

One suggestion; Place in a Wal-Mart bag , drive to the store and go to customer service and ask for a refund(if you have the receipt) or ask for an exchange. Wal-Mart is good on that. Good luck!

Coleman 12-volt cooler stoped working/fan burned out


Sound like you have the newer version. These fans can be found at Radio Shack or anywhere computer parts are sold. It doesnt have to be an exact replacement. Just big enough to fit over the Cooling fins. Also make sure it's a 12 volt motor
