Quiet and durable fan

Buy industrial models  they're really worth the money 

 

I have a few imerflex 18"  that have been running non stop for about 7 years...

They're selling the new bladeless Dyson fan with air filters at Festival now. Nearly 30k but might be worth it if you have problems with the atmosphere here, and very quiet with programmable swing.

Thinking about it!

  If you're looking for a quiet fan I would recommend you buy anything but the Hatrai fans.  They're usually sold at the lowest price at Tesco/Lotus and many other stores.  They also tend to get noisy quickly especially the left to right movement controller.  The only good news is that they can be repaired for about 300 baht at most corner repair shops and it will run quietly again.  I keep swearing I won't buy another one then somehow end up with another beast but at least I now know how easy it is to keep them running quietly when they 'do their Harari thing'.

Have a 20yr old Hitachi fan. Looks like the plastic casing will disintegrate before the inner parts go wrong. Still really quiet. Because its the oldest it is the dogs personal fan.

Tefal make a 4-speed fan that has a quiet setting which is just slower than the normal lowest speed you find on other fans which are nearly all 3 speed. Of course on the quiet setting it's going to push less air. I found mine upstairs at Siam TV.

Turn the Hatari rotate button to OFF, then the bad noise stops.  In fact i have 2 same models of Hatari and one is certainly quieter than that other.  Variable quality, no doubt.

  I should have mentioned that I generally use my Hatari fans for many hours on end with the rotate left/right button turned on.  So that's probably a lot of wear and tear and may not be what most people put them through.  I will say that any other brand of fan I've used besides Hatari seems to last longer before having noise problems.  I think it's a 'you get what you pay for' issue.

I asked the salesguy at Global House and he said that only Hatari has ball bearings in its motor. No other brand uses ball bearings.

 

He said the ball bearing will make the motor more durable and quiet.

 

He also said that Hatari has a factory in CM for repairs whereas Panasonic need to go to Bangkok for repairs. Hatari specialises in making fans , he said.

 

Can anyone confirm this?

 

PS: Global House do sell Panasonic fans.

Yes not many use proper ball bearings..I only ever came across one but can't remember the brand name.

Id say that the capacitor or  the motor windings ( due to fluff and gunk + moisture) go before the brass bearings..and if you occasionally oil ( not WD40)  the brass bearings they can last a good long wile.

I've had a Hatari for 6 years and I just clean the blades and spray WD40 into the bearings once or twice a year.  (Yes, I know WD40 isn't a lubricant.  But it does dissolve a little of the grease in the sintered bearings and 6 years on, so far, so good)

 

 

With all due respect, WD-40  IS a lubricant. It is Mineral Oil mixed with Stoddard Solvent. The solvent thins the oil which allows it to penetrate and displace water, then the solvent evaporates leaving a coating of the oil.  Mineral Oil is the base oil of the majority of non-grease, non-synthetic lubes on the market today.

Doesn't it attract the fluff and gunk referred to though?
