We now have two of these fans and love them. They are about as quiet as a fan can get, and still do the job. Only notice them at all on a completely still night. If they were loud, my wife couldn't sleep with them on - and at this point she can't sleep with them off! We are totally solar powered so current draw was initial in going to the budget to include these jewels. They don't use anything! The designers were genious when they engineered the power factors. They will point in absolutely ANY direction we want, and then they will fold up out of the way. Unless you are standing them up vertically from the base, do not use the adhesive tape for install. Hanging will need screw mounting.

I bought 5 or 6 of these and installed one in my camper, and the rest were intended to go in my boat.

I have to hand it to the French for designing a built in timer that shuts this off after a period of time--2, 4, or 6 hours. This is perfect for the Carbibbean where nights start hot and get cooler.

It is on a gimballed mount--this is where it fails. Using it pointed it one direction causes damage to the contacts inside the housing, or perhaps the wires break at this point--I did not take it apart to see which of these is the case.

So after a while you have to point it away from where you want it pointed to work. At some point I expect it will fail completely.

After only minimal use, it would not spin the fan blade in certain poitions. At first I could give it a little push to get started, then today, it will not spin at all umless I point it 90 degree from where I want the breeze. So those contacts have either worn out, shorted, or arced and built up carbon deposits. Clearly the weak point is the lack of conductivity on the contacts inside the housing. Or else if wires are used, these cannot tolerate the fan being adjusted and the wires are breaking.

The fan I am using now failed in 3 months of use, neaarly all of it on the lowest setting. This setting is quiet and still moves a lot of air. Since it automatically shuts itself off after 2 hours, the number of hours is minimal. I rarely set it to operate more than two hours at a time.

The photo's show, it has power because the little blue light is on, but will no longer push any air unless you fiddle with the adjustyments for direction.

If someone knows of a reliable fan that will last for years please let me know.

I will be returning all of them, including the others which are unboxed because I don't want them to be out of warranty from sitting in a box waiting to be installed.

The attached photos show it energised and spinning and also not working with a slight change in angle. The range in angles were it does not work is fairly wide. The opivot point at the top and bottom of the fan is the problem area.

    Comments about Sirocco Cabin Fans:

    we live aboard our sailboat and use the fans often. They have about a one year life span due to the poor design of contacts which wear and corrode. If this design flaw were fixed I could recommend this product but not as it is now.

      Airflow was good, but had to rescue it every year due to connections failing. Gave up after 4 replacements and went to a smaller less expensive model.

        Cons

          Best Uses

            I have 6 of these in our boat. We purchased the first ones about 3 or four years ago. We absolutely love everything about these fans other than the fact that they keep dieing. We have had to replace at least 4 of the 6. A fan is something I expect to last for 10 years even in a marine environment like our boat. Very protected environment inside. I have a fan on my old boat that is probably 20 years old and it still works. Seriously not happy with the quality but I do love the design.

            Best Uses

              These fans in my opinion could be the best on the market...they have everything going for them EXCEPT they just don't last. I thought we would have had problems with the articulating bracket but that has turned out to be well designed it seems. We have had 6 of these fans and everyone of them WITHOUT exception and in less than 1 year has had problems with the on/off and or the timer/delay switches. THey either won't turn on or won't turn off and or the 2/4/6 hr timer switches stop working. The good news is they have all been replaced under warranty but I am tired of the work involved in swapping them out with new ones..I have done it 6 times so far and until I hear that they have fixed this problem... will not do it again.

              We bought four fans in four years. Only one of them is still working.. 5000 hour life time is not true. If we have to buy a fan each year, why spend this much money! Buy a cheap car fan instead.

              Purchased as it is a good idea. It worked for a while, but the contacts failed after an ocean crossing and the unit stopped working. I have tried to fix and got reworking, but when it wants. Not a good value, great idea.

                Love the timer so we can fall asleep with it on and have it turn off in 2-4-6-8 hours. Don't need to worry about the battery. All seems great, but I can't believe they couldn't include 4 s/s screws to mount it.
