Hey everyone, just wanted to share this with anyone and everyone. As we all know, monkey fans that oscillate are hard to find and expensive. They all suck except, in my humble opinion the secret jardin has always done me well. But they are hard to find and waaaay over priced. Anyway the vivosun ones, aka Amazon, are pieces of shit. I have three dead ones. Well, HAD, three dead ones. Turns out it's a design flaw more than a serious quality issue. Really quickly at the knuckle, where you can adjust the pitch, inside they tied the cord in a knot. That knot is where your problem is. Three screws, and wire strippers will get you there with ease. So go ahead and save a few bucks and headaches looking for an oscillating monkey fan for your tent. Go ahead and get the piece of crap vivosun one and when it dies, because it will, sometimes quickly sometimes slowly, but it will die. The fix is super easy. I know I wish I would have seen this post a long time ago, so I felt I had to put it out there for you guys and gals. Take care, be safe, and love. Love as much as you can. We need it. Peace out you silly bastards!!

I meant to add, im actually in the middle of fixing those three I have. So I know I made that pretty quick. Feel free to hit me up for more detailed instructions on the fix. I will return and post it with pics when I get a chance. So probably a while from now if I'm being honest haha. Take care. Hit me up.

Fucking awesome ! Ty😎
Yeah, i really wish I still had the three or four still that I pitched. I started a collection at one point from friends and family etc. Basically the hot gets crimped and basically shorts out. Fix the short on the one line and untie that damn knot. Look at it correctly and you don't have to undo the wiring to untie the knot. You'll see. It can be done if you feed enough slack through. Super easy fix, fans have been running fine since. Hell, replace the cord with something beefier maybe if you have any laying around.

Hey man, come back with that detailed fix. I bought 4 one stopped oscillating in a month. I bitched and sent them a vid and they sent me a new one. I'd like to fix the broken one as well as any future breaks. Aside from that the fans are OK and fine for the price point. They are all HIGH! lol
