Why do people recommend something like Maxxair when Fantatsic Fan is clearly such a great company to deal with?

Fantastic Fans are made in the USA, they are original equipment, they obviously stand behind their product forever. What more can you ask for? I wanted a switch for my FF so I called, Bam, there it was! Not even a warranty issue and no charge.....
I have no issue with Maxxair, I don't know anything about them. Made in US, China, Mexico? Two year warranty instead of lifetime?

I'm just kind of curious....

I don't know that much about Maxx-Aire, though I have had 3 of them come through the shop broken on 2.5 year old Interstates. Strangely enough, they were all broken lift mechanisms, all had been left open while driving, which is what Maxx-Aire says you can do. All 3 had to be replaced at the customers expense because they were out of warranty. Several hundred dollars to replace the entire thing versus free to replace a small part on a Fantastic when the same part of the systems break...

I prefer MaxxAir because it keep open and running even in the rain. I like the fantastic fan but the slightest rain or even morning dew would make it close.

For now, I am just happy that the fix was free, and did not involve more than a few screws!

All you have to do is buy a FF model without the auto close feature...cheaper too.

Our 2002 Bambi has a Fantastic Fan in the ceiling. The outer frame of the plastic interior cover is cracked and I'd like to replace it. However, I'm unable to find a new part on the internet. Anyone know where to find one?

I have contacted them for minor info and parts. I have found them to be very customer friendly.

I think all the new FF models have a switch to defeat the rain sensor. I wont consider anything but FF because of their service.

Call, let them know what you need and I think you'll find it in your mailbox ASAP.... no charge. I always deal with the Factory directly and have never been charged for any replacement parts.
