I had the same problems that everyone else did with these piece of crap foggers:mad: , this is an email I sent to the manager at First Imperial Trading Company. This is the company that manufactures these products.....

I had purchased a 1000 watt mega fogger and a ground fogger from my local party city no more than a week ago. When I got the first one home I attempted to test it out. I filled up the resovoir with the fitco fog juice and let the machine run through its heating phase. When the machine was done heating up (the light turned on) I then turned on the remote for the machine and a nice high pressure burst of fog came out of the machine for about 3 minutes. After that the fogger went back into its reheating phase and when it was ready again I turned the remote back on and this time the fog did not come out. I unplugged the machine and let it cool down. The next day I attempted to retry the machine, I checked the fog juice to make sure there was enough in there and there was plenty. I let the machine heat up and then turned the remote on and no fog came out again. I exchanged that machine for a new one from party city thinking that it was a defective machine. The second machine did the same thing as the first. I am now on my third machine that is currently doing the same as the first two have been doing. As of right now, I am currently sure that it is a problem with the brand and not the indiviual machines. I am currently part of a halloween forum and there is about 8 other cases of this same behavior happening with your products. The ground fogger is also not working up to par. It is doing the same thing as the other fogger but instead of no fog coming out, there is a tiny bit but with no pressure. Party City is telling there customers that they will not take these foggers back so I am sure your company will find a way to keep happy customers, and to compensate the ones that are not to pleased at this moment.

The Manager's email is [email protected]

Please if you are having the same problems write him, see what we can do about this product! Since we all know Party City won't do anything:finger: . Overwelm his e-mail, lets kick this companies butt into gear!! :D

I bought the 1000w model last year, heated it up, worked great, ran all my chiller tests, worked great.. couple nights before halloween, fired it up for my family and friends, 2 hours later, dead.

The resivoir was kept topped off the entire night, I absolutely refuse to buy any fitco fog machines from here on out.

I contacted Party City and they flat out refused to refund or exchange, I can understand not refunding seasonal merchandise, but this is rediculous.

For a budget Fog machine, Lite f/x or Gemmy is going to be your best bet.
For ghits and siggles, I sent him an email, not really expecting anything out of it, but figured it was worth a try.
As far as my Fitco not running, as soon as it stopped fogging, I immediatly assumed it was cloged, the pump was vibrating like mad, disconnected the pump from the heating element and rubber tubing and was able to blow air right through, there was no clog that I could see and there was nothing abstructing the air flow, seems like the pump litterally just siezed up, I could hear it running, but it would not move the juice.

On another note,

Ive saved 3 different lite f/x foggers from the trash that had all been ran with no fluid (clogged) took the pumps apart, cleaned them and they have been working awesome ever since.

Seems like I might have just gotten a defective pump in my fitco fogger? or the pumps in the lite f/x foggers are better quality.
I bought that 1000w fitco fogger from party city last year for 40.00 BEFORE halloween, Peronally, I wouldent touch it for 50.00 sounds like a ripoff to me, especially since they are notorious for being cheaply made.

If you could get one for 30.00, you might chance it, but even then.....
