good fan, broke remote

I love the fan, but the remote never worked and I'd like to get one but can't seem to find a place on the website to even ask.

Parts missing

I purchased the last model at the store and I found during assembly that it was missing the screws.  I emailed customer service and asked them for the screw sizes so I could buy some to complete assembly, or if the screws could be mailed to me.    I was told to exchange the fan at the store.   I also called customer service and was told they did not know the screw sizes and that they did not have the ability to send me the screws.  I will now return the product and look for a different fan.   Poor customer service!!!

Honeywell HY-280 Fan

This product is nice because it has a thermostat providing the room temperature which I like since my a/c thermostat is upstairs and I keep the fan downstairs.

The ability to adjust the fan speed is great because there are so many setting available.

So far, I like the product.

Only issue was the cover for the remote was missing from the box when I purchased the fan.  When I called Kaz to order a replacement, I was told they do not carry that piece nor can you ever replace the remote so buyer be aware.  I'm taking mine back and getting a different fan without the remote.

I PURCHASED A 2ND FAN HY-280-TGT    DATE:  AUGUST 11, 2013.

Comment on this review


Excellent Product

Have found that this is a quality product and find it cools the room better than previous model fans we have used in the past.  The best feature of the fan, is you have 8 different settings you can use depending on your comfort level.

Cool fan!

Our first tower fan (Model No. HY-280) is a definite plus in helping to beat the heat this summer of '13. The 8-speed control with oscillator helps cool down a room in practically no time, thus enabling us to skip the air conditioner. Would recommend highly to anyone!

The fan is okay so far. I bought it to use in the dining room.  It keeps the room cool. In addition, it's quiet and I love the timer feature.

It's quiet, has many features like sleep control, takes up little room, easy to assemble, and 8 speeds. Love my new fan!

Comment on this review


Great Buy

Bought my new quietset tower fan and i love it, it is well worth the money and is amazing.

Comment on this review


Good Purchase

This tower fan is very easy to use, quiet, and does a very good job.!  The skinny nature of the tower results in very little space to operate, and makes storing a breeze.

Junk

I bought this fan last august and used it for about a month and then just brought it out two weeks ago for the new summer.  It worked great until the other day and now all it does is make a loud squealing noise.  For the little use and the expensive amount paid for this fan I do not recommend it.

Quiet,cool and very easy to move from room to room.

Great fan

Keeps you cool and and isn't too loud (impossible to be silent). A little expensive but if it lasts a few years it's worth it.

Review of HY280

We love this tower fan...the temperature options are a new feature for us and we have found the fan tio be exceptional.  The quiet operation of the fan is a welcomed feature (the fan replaces a very noisy tower fan).  The price was a good value and we have already recommended the fan to a couple of friends!

Comment on this review


Great Product

So far, the product works as stated.  I like the fact that it has a digital thermostat and you can  set to several hours at a time to turn off.  I also like the fact there are several cooling levels

Chillin in Texas :-)

Purchased fan to help reduce electric bill associated with air conditioning. I wanted a quiet tower fan; tried several different brands until I got a quiet fan. I received a great added benefit, there is a thermostat built into the fan which allows me to lower the air temp coming out the fan. Great fan!

HY-280

A GREAT FAN WITH ALL THE CONVENIENCES.

Comment on this review


Quiet set tower fan

The fan works amazing right out of the box after basic assembly. The fan has great blowing power and all 8 blowing speeds work great for when you need that lite air flow to powerful . In fact the eight speeds are the best feature on the fan, my boyfriend and I only bought a fan because it had a temperature control, thinking it would blow cooler air then a normal fan.  " we live in Tucson, Az". Bought in the month of may  to help out with the swamp-cooler in the house we rent: it works okay in keeping it cooler then the other tower fan we bought last year. We would have to say we would rate it better and/or be wonderful in a A/C home.

FAN of the fan

This is the second model of the Honeywell HY280 that we purchased in the last few years. It is quiet, and we really like the built in thermostat. We would give it 4.5 stars.

Comment on this review


quiet set fan

Like the fan.  It is quiet and has many features.  Just got it so can't recommend fan until I see if it holds up.  Only thing I would like changed is the time feature.  It is on the fan but not on the remote control. 

Comment on this review


A very good and quiet fan

Hi,

  I like my new HY-280 Honeywell (Kaz) fan.  It's VERY quiet, possibly due to it's having EIGHT speeds.

Pros:  1.  Eight speeds with lights for each one!  2.  QUIET!  3.  Remote control.  4.  Cost.

Cons:  1. You MUST cycle upwards thru ALL of the fan speeds if you decide you'd like to lower the fan speed.  This selection should've been bi-directional!   2.  Also, the fan has NO memory of prior temperature settings you've made while the fan is on.  Thus you are forced to re-enter your settings every time you turn the fan on IF you plan on using the temperature-maintain feature.   3.  Short of disassembling the unit there is no way to clean the fan blades or the inside of the fan.  Which leads me to . . .  4.  The fan has NO filter.  5.  The highest fan speed isn't as fast as some other fans.

So:  Would I recommend this fan?  I'd say YES if your price conscious and want a good quality fan.  If you want filters or ionization features then look elsewhere.

Just bought it....

Just bout my tower fan as a replacement. S far I am very impressed with the quality of the product and how quiet it is.

Tower Fan

I have only had this unit a week, but plan to buy a second one for another room.  It was easy to assemble.  The range of the air movement is much better than I have seen in equivalent models, it is quiet, and very easy to move due to the weight and carry handle on top.  The best feature for me, other than the price, is the remote:  able to control fan level and the oscillations.   Would highly recommend this unit.

Comment on this review


TC

Not sure what to say.  This is the second tower fan I purchased.  The first tower fan just stopped oscillating.  It's the same fan.  I hope this one doesn't break on me.  When working properly it's a good product.

Honeywell 8 Speed Whole Room Tower Fan

Works great. Would have been 5 stars had the base been more sturdy. Decent output. Remote capabilty & digital thermostat were both nice features. Fairly quiet even during use of Power Cool level.

Comment on this review


Great Fan!!!

Spent a little extra for this fan but we love it and way worth it!!!

Comment on this review


Beautiful Design

Wonderful product so far.  Just purchased a couple days ago and so far so good!  The black, sleek design, and 8 options of cooling make this product the best!  Love the remote that comes with it too.  It fits nicely into tight spaces/smaller apartments where space is limited.  Very quiet.  Would like an option with higher power air flow, but overall I give it 4.5 Stars!  Thank you for a great product!

Tower fan

When I first purchased the tower fan, I loved the way it worked and the shape and space conservation of it in regards to regular fans..  It worked all summer (since July when it was purchased) until this fall when suddenly, it stopped working this November when my Mother was in the kitchen making T'giving in Texas,.....  I realized that I had already disposed of the box, but saved the owner's manual which led me to finding the website and writing this review with request of what to do next.  I really thought this product would work longer than less than 6 months.  I'm disappointed in the quality and how quickly it went kapoot!  :-(  I went to Target where I originally purchased the fan, but they couldn't help me since I didn't have the box and it was after 90 days.  I ido have my receipt, proof of purchase, so please let me know what I need to do next.  Thanks!
