We received the Home Decorators Corner Fan yesterday and installed in on our covered patio last night and are extremely disappointed. We shopped around and ordered this particular fan (like many others, I assume) because it could be placed on a patio (damp approved) and oscillate back and forth to cool the entire patio. Upon reading the online description when were were shopping for a patio fan the description stated "90 degree" oscillation... which sounds perfect for moving around and cooling all parts of the room. However, what the description fails to mention is that that 90 degree movement is from the center downward view- so not 90 degrees into the room... at best half of that oscillation both ways. IF we can even get that- constantly, even right after installation last evening, the fan would get stuck and make weird grinding noises when it was trying to move. Not ideal when one spends money on a patio fan in hopes that it will keep air moving all summer.

Appearance - It looks amazing. I actually changed the shaft they have for some iron piping that I made to include a light over the fan - it was simple enough to wire and the ceiling already had two hots coming out, so the result is pretty impressive (tooting my horn proudly). Quality - We had one, the motor went out after maybe 6 months, so no fan. We had it replaced (it's next to bunk beds, so the covered blades are a must). This second one lasted about a year before the oscillation stopped working. I was able to manually get it pointed near the beds and we leave the oscillation off. They did send a replacement motor housing, but I am waiting until it goes out completely to replace, since that will be a task, and I assume it will happen. Value - Paying 200 bucks for a fan that is REALLY spotty quality wise is awful in my opinion. BUT, if you HAVE to have a covered fan like this, especially one that oscillates, 200 bucks is a steal. If you look outside of HD for something similar, expect at least double (at least that's what I found). So based on quality, value is low, but based on needing these features, value is good. Ease - I am not an electrician, but am pretty handy (again, I made a custom shaft to add lights to the fan). I've installed lots of fans between my houses and my parents' house. This was the least easy, and the biggest issue was getting the receiver and wiring all tucked into the ceiling attachment. It wasn't impossible, I did it alone, etc, but it was not "easy." Also, when you go to clean the blades and motor - the screws are a little awkward so there is some difficulty in that, but again, that's part of getting a covered fan. Final advise - if you have to get a covered fan that oscillates, this is a good one, but save the receipt and be ready to need to replace it. If you don't need the unique features, get something else.

Fans were easy to install and look nice on my patio. Only complains are that set screws needed retighting to get ride of fans blade noises (Allen wrench provided) and that the oscillating is sometimes sticking on both of my fans. I still need to call support for this issue to hear what the fix is for it.

Fan was much nicer than I expected. Easy to assemble and install and moves air much better than the traditional fan I had before on the porch. Remote control a big plus.

This is a great looking fan for outdoor applications and it works quite well when it works. The remote control and oscillation features are great for hot summers in Florida. I purchased three of these fans for my back patio. I have had to return one of the three which stopped working a few days after purchase and another, on which the oscillation stopped working after about 3 weeks. I think they must be having a quality control issue, but I'm very surprised and disappointed by a purchase from Home Depot where I expect a certain level of quality and reliability. The exchange process was easy and painless, but of course installing and then having to take down and re-box these units in no picnic. I will attempt to return the second unit, but after that, if I have any more issues, I will return all 3 units and replace them with more reliable fans.

Definately would recommend this product.
Was excited when I received this fan. I had been looking for a fan to go out on the back porch for those hot summer days. I received this fan and when I saw it, I fell in love with the look. It was bigger than what I was expecting (which was a good thing). I love the oscillating fact. It works great!

Stopped oscillating in less than an hour
Purchased 2 of these for my outside room. With construction delays and the pandemic they have been sitting in garage for a year until today. Had them professionally installed by an electrician, they oscillated for about and hour before they stopped. I should have returned them and repurchased so they would be inside the window. I cannot recommend anyone purchase these fans. Of course I’d have to pay to take them down as well.
