Great fan in the bedroom!

published

Arlec CSF120WO with remote and oyster light.
We've had this fan in our bedroom for at least 4 years now and use it a lot as we don't have other cooling in our room. It's been fantastic and I'm surprised by some of the other negative reviews.
I'm a light sleeper but it is so quiet that I don't notice it. Also, I set the timer so that it turns off at about 3 am.
During the night it's set to low, sometimes we run it at med during the day but never high as it's too powerful.
The only bad things I can think of is that I do have to replace the globe every year, it's not very bright and the remote is a bit chunky.

Quality for Good Price

published

We now have a total of three such fans in our relatively small bedrooms. They are very quiet and efficient, with a bright light which can be set to come on with the original light switch. The controller allows for for speed selection, plus a timer. Our Electrician says the installation was straight forward.

Too Noisy

published

Arlec 120cm White Columbus Ceiling Fan With LED Light and Remote Control
This is a good fan if you don’t mind the noise. Reasonable priced, with remote control, light and six speed.
However, don’t use it in your bed room or you will have trouble to get some sleep. It is far too noisy specially in the lower speeds.
I had to return two of them to the store for a refund and choose a different brand.
Taking into account the electrician charges to install, and uninstall it to return to the store it is an expensive exercise.
Based on my experience, I do not recommend this fan to anyone.

Very poor circulation

published

Very disappointed in the arlec fan. I had electrician replace the fans throughout the house with the 4 blade thinking it would be cooler.. WRONG... I am getting the electrician back to remove them... They look very stylish but we do not feel any breeze. I thought it might have been on the winter setting.. When I checked I noticed the base of fan was very hot. I actually burnt my fingers when I touched it.. Afraid it may overheat & start a fire. Waste of money.

Everything is good except for...

published

Fan it self does circulate the air well and the speeds all work fine and dandy. But, for some reason the fan does make a noise on different occasions. It doesn't happen all the time but I'm thinking of calling in someone to look at it. A good thing to have when buying a fan is a warranty for 'in house repairs'. Meaning you don't have to have the fan taken off the ceiling to take back to the shop. They will come to you. Apart from that I'm pleased with it and I love the led light. The fan is of modern design.

Don't Buy Arlec Fans

published

Don't waste your money buying Arlec. We bought 3 fans on a recommendation from our electrician. I hate them. We had 3 fans taken out as I didn't think they were powerful enough, had the Arlec remote control with LED light installed. They're garbage. The remote is a poor design. I'm so angry that I listened to our electrician. The fans are not powerful at all, they're less powerful than the ones I had. I have a desk fan going in the room as well. When you're standing right underneath the fan you can barely feel it. The lounge is 1.5 metres away and you cannot feel it. So angry and disappointed. I'll never buy Arlec again!!


Installation Nightmare

published

Very hard to install all the wiring into the small housing. Looks good as fans go. Doesn't blow much air though. Will not buy again as it was too fiddly to get the wiring and the remote control receiver to fit in such a small space. Could have designed it better. Tricky to assemble blades also.

Appears to be a cheap low quality product

published

We had two installed in our home along with 4 other ceiling fans of a different brand. Both Arlec fans failed within days of each other. When one failed it went to full speed, lit the light and could not be turned off. Turned off the Mains power to attempt a reset but this didn't change. Had to call an electrician to come and disconnect it electrically so that we could have power back to the room.

Waste of Money

published

This is probably the worst ceiling fan out there. i can barely tell the difference if it is on or off, it pretty much just spins without giving off any air!

Cheap and Nasty

published

Very poor quality. Looks nice but as found out looks can be deceiving. Cannot find a energy saver globe to fit in the tiny location for the light bulb. Also the 3-speed fan control switch makes buzzing and sparking pop sounds when shifting between speeds - a very poor controller that seems like it may cause power leakage. Not installed one week and the switch has to go!!! Buying a better brand this time. Do not risk your safety buying Cheap and Nasty!!! Lesson learned.
Looks, plain design.
Not enough space for energy saver light globes. Fan control speed makes popping spark noises when switching between speeds.

Blades have drooped

published

Quiet operation, and initially gave good wind output, but after a year of infrequent use the blades have drooped and it now likes like we have a spider hanging on our ceiling. The fan looks extremely ugly now, and does not have the same wind output. Limited light output as their is only one globe attachment, but it is easy to clean

Poor quality

Hi.. Our 4 blade 130cm fan was working well and we were very happy with quietness and the airflow. Just out of nowhere when the fan was turned on with the remote, it turned one way by 20 - 30cm and then changed direction by 20cm and back and forth for about 30secs and turned itself off. It wont do a full spin either way. Batteries are brand new and the fan beeps with command but wont spin
