Quiet and durable fan

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

 

Has anyone used a Hatari or Panasonic fan? Preferably wall-mounted but standing is ok.

 

Which is better in terms of durability and quietness while sleeping.

Go with Panasonic,if you regularly maintain them they will

last a long time,had 3 for it must be 25 years,just dismantle

them give the blades,fan cover a good wash, put  Singer oil

into the bearings back and front,they will last.

 

I have also had Hatari ,but over time they just failed,one

after just a couple of months,the whole fan part just snapped

off.brought a couple home from one of our rentals,that the

tenant had left,press  No1, fans hardly move,No3 will be

the same as No 1 on a Panasonic,thats after cleaning them

and oiling them,as they were actually seized up.

The strange thing is that Homepro, Big C, Powerbuy don't sell Pana fan.

 

Do you know where I can buy one in CM?

Try a Vertical Fan, very quite on it's slowest speed.

I have a German Tefal and am pleased to recommend.

Just ordered another Panasonic wall fan off Lazada,

C.O.D, 1,175 THB,which is a good price.

I had a Hatrai for 10 years before the motor started to slow. Couldn't fault it, so I replaced it with an even bigger, better model. The new one has its own cockpit, but it's not quiet. But then neither are air-cons, barking dogs, cockerels, and all those other noises of the nigh in Thailand.

Common failure isn't the motor but 70 Bahts worth of capacitor connected to the motor.  I have a ceiling fan with that problem on one speed setting and somewhen soon it will need one of the capacitors changed.   Don't throw the fan out it might be a cheap fix!

I already have Dellboy. I gave it to the BIG C boys to take away. They seemed more than happy, and despite its age it still looked almost new. Oh well, if the new one lasts as long it'll probably outlive me 🙂

Try to find one with mechanical pushbuttons or better yet a knob you turn to select the speed. Electronic buttons on fans tend to fail long before the fan itself. Or use a remote control.

Isn't a remote control the same as electronic buttons?

I've had good service ( more than 10 years)  from 2  cheap "Imarflex" pedestal fans.

No, a remote control is used remotely, as in without one touching the fan itself. Remotes are easily replaced. By electronic buttons I mean little plastic buttons connected to a circuit board on the body of the fan. Even fans with good quality motors often come with cheap buttons and boards that malfunction after repeated use in a humid climate. My best fan is a newish, standing Mitsubishi with 3 old-fashioned pushbuttons. No beeps and no LEDs and no problems.

quietness  then do not buy Hatari, have a few and all VERY noisy ........  have a 16" + 3 x 18" + a 20" and a 25" the big one not used as problems from 1st month, in the 1st year was returned 3 times, + 2 x other repair shops have so say repaired it, still the same and has sat in one of the bedrooms unused for past 4+ years..  

 

the Hitachi Fan I found is the best for quietness and have in my bedroom..  the Panasonic before that lasted about 6 years..  [2 x Air Con Panasonic work fine and are 15 years old next month]
