This same fan at Amazon (if you want to see some reviews!): amazon.co.uk/Chr…5PQ

Price on this deal much better though!
Had one of these at work once. The stupid thing just cut out one day, it turned out that the motor has a thermal fuse buried in the motor windings (that is impossible to replace and not a reset type). I hope this is not still the same design or it will be landfill (when they reopen).
Thanks - went for black but noticed they had the 20" for £1 more than the 18". Great deal.

You missed the VAT on that.
Excellent fan, but be warned that it is extremely loud.
As a guide the 18" pedestal fans you see around are usually between 45 - 60w ; these are 140w . So use a lot more power but will shift a lot more air.

They really do shift a lot of air. I've got a 200W model and tend to stick it in a windowsill pushing air out of the house, then open a window anywhere else for a great breeze

No - as in the 20" (black) is only about £1 more than the 18" (black)

A thermal fuse is quite normal in motor windings. The question is why did it blow? These ones are branded Pro-Elec. Yours was this brand?

Yes it was the same brand and about two years ago. The motor was always very warm to the touch after about an hours running. I suspect the quality of the windings/material was poor.
I went for the 20" thanks!
I have one and the clips to the front guard aren't great and keep working lose. Something to look out for.
Bought one of these a few years back. A little noisy compared to your plastic fans but it is pretty powerful and does push a fair bit of air round the room. Just seen similar in middle of lidl for £29.99
What I've picked up regarding to noise, it has 3 settings. I guess it would be quieter on the lower ones??? How often do you use 3? What temp outside?

I had one of these and within a year or two it just started to die and turning it on would only start the fan if you gave it a helping hand and shortly after that stopped altogether. I guess these are made to a price and some of the parts are made from chinesium. If I knew I could pay double for a fan that was built to last I would prefer to buy that.
Great fan and even when it's not hot does a terrific job drying the washing on a clothes horse.
Have had 3 of these moving a lot of air in a crypto mining situation, running 24/7 for months, and they're still going strong. They outlasted the rig! Waiting for summer to sell them
Brilliant power fan. Had mine for years and it still gets used in the summer.

It's 99% metal. Why wouldn't you just recycle it?
Are these quite loud compared to pedestal fans?
Perfect desk fan
Boyf bought the 20" about a fortnight ago, in anticipation of summer and Highland midgies (Though it's stormy weather in Scotland at the moment). It's really powerful, seems well-made, though can't talk of longevity yet.

Bought one of these years ago for work. Still going strong. Must've racked up over 1000 hours in use. A little noisy so wouldn't suggest it if you're just looking for a quiet fan, this is the real deal if you room is mega hot. I now have it in my living room and on the highest setting can't here the damn TV

It was sent to a recycling centre. Sadly a proportion of that waste is sent abroad to be disposed of... Like Ghana, Nigeria, India next and then burnt to get rid of the plastic before being picked over by some of the poorest people in the world.
Bought this a month ago to cool down whilst on my indoor smart cycle turbo trainer. Works a treat, very powerful.

In our council if anything contaminates the lorry load of recycle (ie I hear a lot of blocks of flats are the worst culprits...like putting nappys in any bin the whole lot goes to landfil). A lot of countries have stopped taking refuse so the UK has a stockpile. It use to make money for the councils which is why they did it... Now it is just a problem and they seem to be going the way of just burying it I believe using the nappy as a reason to do it rather than store the waste.

maybe we should do like Sweden and have power stations which run on it... They even import it now as they don't have enough science.howstuffworks.com/env…htm

That will have to change post covid I think. Waste will have to be recyled even if it ends up with us picking through it
does this fan come with any guarantee- the screwfix equivalents got 1 year i think for about a tenner more?
just orderd one thanks o.p
