– No part of this product (the appliance, power cord, plug, packaging, etc.) should be placed near furnaces, fireplaces, stoves, or other high-temperature heat sources. Do not use this product in a window, on an uneven or unstable surface, or near water.
– The appliance, power supply, power cord, and plug cannot come into contact with water. Do not use this product on wet surfaces. Do not use this product in a bathtub or shower or position product where it may fall into a bathtub, laundry, swimming pool, or another water container. Do not use this product outdoors or expose it to weather or elements.
– Do not run cord under carpeting. Do not cover the cord with throw rugs, runners, or similar coverings. Do not route the cord under furniture or appliances. Arrange cord away from traffic area and where it will not be tripped over. The cord should not hang over the edges of counters or be placed where it can be crimped or closed indoors.

SAFE USE WARNING—To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, and injury to persons, observe the following:
– WARNING: To reduce the likelihood of circuit overload, fire, and electric shock, do not operate with a solid-state speed device, such as a dimmer control switch.
– Do not operate the unit if the unit has been dropped or damaged. Do not use this product if it has a damaged power cord or plug. To avoid the risk of electrical shock, do not attempt to repair or replace parts. Only original replacement parts may be used.

Contact Vornado Consumer Service at 1-800-234-0604 (phone) or [email protected] (email) for further instructions about replacement and repair.
– Risk of fire. Your appliance may be equipped with a detachable power supply or a cord/plug with a safety device such as a fuse. Use only the power cord and plug provided.
– Before plugging the power cord into an electrical outlet, be sure that all electrical information on the rating label, including voltage, is compatible with your outlet’s power supply.
– Never use the cord as a handle or otherwise yank, strain or stretch the power cord.
– While the product is plugged in, do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any input or output opening as this may cause a risk of electric shock or fire, or damage the product.
– A loose fit between the wall outlet (receptacle) and plug may cause overheating and distortion of the plug. Discontinue the use of the product in this outlet.
Contact a qualified electrician to replace loose or worn outlets.
– This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other.) To reduce the risk of electrical shock, this plug is intended to fit in a polarized outlet only one way.

– Before moving, repositioning, servicing, cleaning, and when not in use, use the product controls to turn off the power and then unplug. To disconnect from outlet, grasp and pull only the plug. Also, power off and unplug if the product will be left unattended for an extended period of time or during electrical storms.

Refer to the CLEANING instructions provided.
– Do not open appliance housing. To avoid the risk of shock, all service and/or repairs must be done by a Vornado Authorized Service Center.
– This product employs overload protection (fuse). A blown fuse indicates an overload or short-circuits situation. If the fuse blows, unplug the product from the outlet. Replace the fuse as per the user servicing instructions (follow product marking for proper fuse rating) and check the product.

User Servicing Instructions

  1. Using the product controls, turn off the appliance.
  2. Grasp the plug (not the cord) and disconnect from the outlet.
  3. Risk of Fire. Replace fuse only with 2.5 Amp, 125 Volt fuse as approved by Vornado Consumer Service. For an authorized replacement fuse, please contact Vornado Consumer Service.
  4. Once the replacement is received, use a small flat-head screwdriver to slide open the fuse cover (located on the plug) (See next page, Fig. A).
    VORNADO Compact Air Circulator Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 4
  5. Remove fuse by using the screwdriver to gently lift each end of the fuse (See Fig. B).
    VORNADO Compact Air Circulator Owner’s Manual  & troubleshooting 5

  7. Slide the fuse cover closed using the screwdriver. When closed, the cover should fit completely in the plug. No part of the cover should stick out (See Fig. C).

TROUBLESHOOTING

PROBLEM POSSIBLE CAUSE AND SOLUTION
The unit fails to power on. The unit is not plugged in. Plug Power Cord into an electrical outlet.
Ensure unit fan speed setting is selected.
Plug fuse has blown. Replace fuse (See USER SERVICING INSTRUCTIONS).
The unit is damaged or in need of repair. Cease usage and unplug.
Contact Consumer Service for assistance.
The outlet is worn or damaged. Try another outlet or contact a qualified electrician.
Airflow is weak or slow. Unit set to a low-speed setting. Adjust to a higher speed setting.
Airflow is blocked. Remove obstruction.

GFCI has tripped. Under certain conditions, it is possible for a reset GFCI (Ground
Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet to trip when the user is changing
speeds on a Vornado circulator. In this event, change to an outlet
that is not connected to a GFCI device. It could also indicate a
weak or defective GFCI outlet. Contact a qualified electrician to
check the GFCI outlet.
