Intermittent blower failure
Name Withheld (Bonney Lake, Washington) - 12/27/15 7:55 PM
Pros: Quiet, otherwise well made.
Cons: Poor main circuit board manufacturing.
Review: On my unit, after less than five hours of use, the blower would intermittently stop working, then would not work at all. I could power it completely down, then after a cool off period, it might start working again. The cause of the failure are some very poor solder connections on the main circuit board, the worst I have seen. The unit was cheerfully replaced under the warranty, however.This unit was purchased early in 2015, so maybe the manufacturer of the circuit board has resolved the issue. Otherwise, I am pleased with the unit, it is quiet, the blower and heater controls are good now. The hose and attachments are useful and overall, the unit and stand are well made. If your unit is out of warranty, you might try taking it to an electrician to see if solder connections could be the culprit.
