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 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.....
Awww, hell. I just bought one today for $40... I hope I don't have the same problems you guys are having with the thing. :(
Hmmm, I was at party city today, and they have several fitco foggers, including the 1000 for $50. After reading this not so sure about getting one. I had a Fitco 700 that worked good a year, then was barely putting out fog this year. Tried cleaning with viniger/water, made sure nozzle was not clogged. Don't think I can take the pump apart.

I guess I will see if Party City puts them on sale. Are the foggers all from 2004?
These foggers where bought this year 2007 about 2-3 months ago, so beware!!!!

I was thinking of what Jeff said, about how they were new 3 years ago. I wonder if Party city is still selling fitco foggers from 3 years ago.
We were lucky with our 1000 watt Fitco we had to purchase a few weeks ago. Before and during Halloween, we put 3 gallons of fog juice through it. Amazingly it worked perfectly piped into our 30 gallon garbage can chiller. For 2008, we're going to purchase a one of the professional model foggers.
I haven't had any trouble with Fitco foggers. I think the main trouble you might be having is in purchasing them thru Party City. Our local Party City has had the same pile of foggers (over forty of them) on the shelf for at least three years. The problem with that, is that they are stored dry, and the o-rings and seals dry up over time. I have had some success in un-seizing pumps, and in overcoming air bubbles, and other clogs in lines, by taking off the filter on the pick up tube, and using a syringe to force fog fluid into the tube at pressure while the machine is heated, and the remote activated.
