Short life span.


The quality of this fan was absolutely rubbish! I had only purchased it only a month ago and now it is already broken down. The motor burnt out. I can now understand why it is $12. I recommend you spend the extra money and purchase something of a better quality.

Could be dangerous!


Bought from K Mart less than a week ago for NZ$15. Assembly is fairly standard for this sort of fan but performance is patchy.
The second time I used it there was a strong smell of oil. The next time, I found out why - the motor casing was HOT! It's been okay a couple of times since, but heated up again today, almost too hot to touch, so it will be going back to the shop before we end up with a fire. In any case, there's no point in trying to cool down a room with a device that actually heats it up!

Broke after 2 hours of use


i bought one of these fans from Kmart. It has better construction than the cheap white plastic fans and looks a whole lot nicer too. However, after running the fan on oscillating mode for 2 hours, I heard a metallic "ting" sound and the oscillating stopped. I couldn't get it working again. Gonna have to return it!
