Perfect For the Bedroom
Perfect little heater for our standard bedroom! The nights were so cold and this heater does the trick. The heater does a great job in heating our bedroom, perfect for really cold nights. It's not for an entire house just a room. I highly recommend for standard rooms.

Another Quality Control Disaster From Kmart
Well straight off the bat, the thermostat is useless. Set it to room temperature to just turn off and it takes forever to turn off. Set it to just turn on and it takes forever to turn on. Then there's the oscillating function which is either switched on or off by it's own switch on the back, so this means if the fan turns off it continues to oscillate side to side using power for absolutely no reason at all! (The Fan is OFF?) It's okay Kmart to make and sell cheap, but we can all do without the nasty.
Does the job!
We purchased this heater few days ago to heat up our small bathroom. It does heat quickly however there’s a weird smell like a burn one. The price is great for 2000watts and for sure this is perfect for the home at work office room. Hope it blows a neutral air smell but all in all, it does the job.

Fan works well if you want to circulate air but I really wanted it to warm a small space when I get dressed or come out of the shower. Does not heat at all! Its meant to be a heater..back to using my noisy hair-dryer, does a better job

Just bought and it doesn't heat up at all. The fan works fine and blows cool air out but no matter how I twist the knobs I get no heat.

Caught fire! Cheap chinese rubbish!
Started well. Heated room quite quickly. BUT 2 months later I switched it on and within one minute a jet of flame 20cm long came out the front. If I had been out of the room for just 5 minutes I could have had a major fire. Never again.

Good value for money
Very satisfied. Great value for money. Heats really fast and it’s not too loud. But it’s possessed ! It keeps oscillating when it’s turned off. I would definitely still recommend it.

Great value.. but did not last the entire winter
The heating is incredible for a heater of this price. I have no issue heating up my apartment room at all. I may have abused it too much.. I had it on all the time and it stopped working after two months. Likely to get a replacement next year and hopefully it'll last longer!
Excellent and worth the price!
I bought a K-Mart Oscillating Fan Heater (FH221B) for this winter, just for 20 AUD. Its really worth for small rooms and heats up quickly. Can operate 5/10 minutes and switch off. If the doors are shut, heat is preserved. Recommended. Initially, you will get a smell, yet fades away withing 2/3 minutes. (barely noticeable )

Good bargain for a fan and heater
This heater works perfectly fine in heating up my room, which should be noted is quite small, but for the price, i have no problems with it whatsoever. Two weeks ago, the weather is quite cold and this heater does it's job well i dare say. The heat does increase when I adjust for it to increase although i have to say that the increase in heat is hardly noticeable if i only increase it by a small fraction, but otherwise it's all good. For the price, i would say this heater is quite a bargain since we got a heater and a fan in one item, which means that i can use it during both the hot and cold seasons. So far, i found this heater to be working really nicely and will continue to use it.

Good for the price!
My apartment room is relatively small. Works well during the winter days and it has 2 heat options and another fan option. It is very versatile and the oscillating function works glamorously. If you have extra $5 to spend then definitely get the oscillating version.

Heats a whole room in minutes
Needed a small heater for freezing winter nights since the gas bills were getting too expensive with the ducted heating. This little beauty is perfect for anyone on a budget, heats up a whole room in minutes and has minimal energy usage! A bit loud at times but for something small and cheap it's worth it

Seems ok but not perfect
Works well as a typical fan heater, slightly louder than our previous Arlec 2000w. One annoying thing is it keeps oscillating even when thermostat shuts off the fan and heater. And makes a rickety noise as it keeps turning back and fourth. You can turn oscillation function off with a seperate switch. I think the oscillation should stop also when thermostat cuts the heater out.

Getting me through the winter in my office!
Pretty happy with this little heater! My colleague & I are stuck in a freezing part of our office and decided to buy this heater for our area. We were really pleasantly surprised!
It has a rotation setting so it spreads the warmth around rather than just being directed in one place. It also has different heat settings.
It’s quite powerful and warms us up in a matter of minutes! Would recommend.
It’d also be great in the bathroom if you get cold coming out of the shower!
Great bang for your buck
We just moved into a two story house with ducted heating only downstairs. I don’t mind this, because heat rises. Where’s in the past, we’ve had a place with aircon downstairs and struggled to get the upstairs cool in Australia’s summer heat.
Our four rooms upstairs just needed a kick to take the edge off before bed and waking up.
This $20 wonder does the trick.
Put it in each room for a few minutes to take the chill off is all is needed. Let the blankets do the rest.
Cold in the morning? Chuck it on quickly and it’s awesome. Limit ...long use for electricity bills, but for a family of seven and five of us upstairs, it’s a great source to take off the coldbefore ragging up or getting up. Love the auto shut off if picked up or tips over, too.
Questions & Answers
I wonder if anyone has a cost estimate re running costs?
Does this fan have the option to stop the oscillating and just stay still and blow in one constant direction?
Yup you can do that, there's a switch at the back of the fan
It’s been two months it was doing great since this week it only throws cool air.. what to do ?
try checking with manual.. maybe something wrong. Still not working? take it back to Kmart, you can get a working one or refund.
