Questions & Answers

Is the fan motor housing all metal with painted finish or un-painted finish?

Asked by: Kate
After receiving fan and inspecting it, the motor housing back is hard plastic and the front of motor housing appears to possibly be painted black metal or just black metal.

Is this fan quiet on the low speed setting? Very important to me. So many of the high velocity floor fans are extremely loud, even at low speed.

I have a Lakewood high velocity fan which has recently died after 15 or 16 years of use. A great fan, to say the least. You might know that this fan is no longer being made. Very quiet, yet potent, on the lower setting. I think maybe the switch has burned out, and would get it repaired if I knew where and if feasible/cost effective to do so. It appears that this Optimus fan is similar, but this fan cannot be found in the Home Depot stores, sadly. Please consider stocking it in stores.
Asked by: Wayne
Quiet is subjective but in my opinion it is not quiet especially if you are expecting the sound level of a ceiling fan. Even a ceiling fan on high speed is quieter than this fan on low speed. I will say you can hardly tell a difference in the noise level from Low to High Speed, it sounds High Speed on all three settings, but it does move a lot of air on all three settings. .(Low, Medium, High).

Listed as Indoor/Outdoor - Waterproof?

I can't find in the specs where this fan is rated for outdoor use, but it's listed as indoor/outdoor. Is it waterproof/rain proof or not? Thanks
Asked by: PlantLady
According to the Owner's Manual, wipe the unit with a damp clean cloth making sure not to get near the motor and dry it completely. "DO NOT immerse the fan in water and never allow water to drip into the Motor Housing. " Hence it is not waterproof. The Owner's Manual also states do not use outdoors and use only on a dry level surface.

Is this a loud fan? I need a *very loud* fan for white noise to help me sleep.

Asked by: kallu
The fan is quite loud, but has three speed settings that control the noise a little.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I purchased 2 of these fans because they are metal blades and older reviews were good. One fan motor went out after 2 weeks and from running over night for the first time. After calling HomeDepot and was informed that I could return w/o a problem I waited 2 more weeks to return it. The same day I decided to return the first fan I notice the second fan had gone out over night as well. The fans lasted less than a month. I will never buy these fans again. It was a waste of time and money. I do not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not as advertised So I expected a chrome fan, the power is just fine for indoor use I love that, but clearly this fan has been used, it's painted it certainly isn't steel or chrome and after further inspection the frame holding the fan together has rust all over it and the paint is chipping off. May not be a big deal to others but it certainly is to me, when I paid for something chrome and brand new not painted silver and used very disappointed in product and company for that

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Optimus 18" At lowest speed this fan does its job, I bought it as a replacement for an industrial Hampton bay 16" I had for years. The quality didn't seem as good when I first opened the box and took it out but after using it for a month I have no complaints. Btw the extra 2" makes I big difference, 18" turned out to b a perfect size. This fan cranks!

Had an odd repair w/ a small wrapping of steel wool covering a defect on the front grill. Had a very discolored metal stand like a chemical spill. Very loud motor & the plastic back heated up quickly putting off a foul smell. Returned.
