POS. What a waste of money and disappointment. Should have just font to party city and gotten theirs. Barely smokes out of the whole it should. Instead whole unit smokes out the sides.

This thing does not work, I will be contacting the company. We followed the directions and have been waiting for an hour, it is not hot, there is no smoke, and if we press the button it just spews out the liquid fog stuff we put in it. Planned on using it this weekend, I guess not anymore.

For the price it does a great job of filling up a room with fog. It fills up the room with pretty thick fog and does exactly what I want it to. Some smoke leaks out of the top vent when it is on which scares friends when I have them over because they think its actually on fire and is going to burst into flames. It does what it is supposed to but not as claimed and it scares my guests so only 2 stars.

The fog came out of the sides rather than the front. Have to return it.

Wanted to add some fog effect to my outdoor Halloween decor this year. Received this fog machine
last weekend and was surprised at how small this thing was. Followed directions: filled it up with fog juice(small reservoir too), heated up and fired her up and smoke was everywhere with a small amount at the tip. Saw the pic someone else posted and it was identical to it.
Size and function so far "No Bueno" and not impressed!
Didn't want to break my kids heart cause she was really excited to see the fog and lights and sounds at night.
Grabbed a cold beer, DeWalt with a phillips head screw bit and a pair of small needle nose pliers, gloves and got to work. Unplugged the unit and removed the screws off the housing(6 small screws I think). Housing removed. Re-plugged the machine and let her warm up and then pushed the fog button and was able to see the problem. With the housing removed I could see a strong unobstructed fog stream working beautifully coming out the steel tip nozzle only and nowhere else.
The steel needle tip nozzle(very small), at the front of the machine was bent and directing the smoke to part of the housing assembly instead of the outer nozzle housing which has holes at the front for the fog to come out without obstruction. The fog was bouncing off the housing back into the main fog machine housing and coming out the top vent slats with little coming out the front nozzle assembly. Not a motor fire or the such tho it sure looked like it in the beginning(no burnt smell either).
Carefully straightened the steel nozzle tip back to normal with the needle nose pliers(wearing gloves cause the unit gets pretty hot when no housing assembly).
Replaced the housing back on with just 2 screws to make sure the fog stream steel tip was lined up with the center fog hole on the housing. Fired her up with no problems. Tightened all screws and boy this little machine can crank some fog and pretty quickly too. Doesn't take long to heat up and doesn't use much fog juice.
Send the machine back if you're unsure, burning smell, you don't have the tools or the patience or cold beer! Was a 10 minute job for me, and my kid is happy. Will post pics soon. Best of luck!

Fog action was a bit lack luster. Not enough fog would come out at once.

Takes a little bit to warm up but other than that it is great

I tested it out and works great. Will be using it for a show the end of October.
