Re: [DMCForum] FanZilla VS "Fan Fix": Owner/enthusiast opinion & real worldobservations (long)



When I bought my car back in early 2001, I bought all the Zilla products for my car and haven't had a problem with any of them, it was money well spent. Rob even sent me a free T-Shirt to boot!

Martin,

We did have one batch of Fanzilla's that "Bobzilla" had decided to contract
out the assembly of to an outside vendor. The boards were not properly
washed to remove the flux and we did have some cross-feed current problems.
It was soon discovered and we quickly recalled the units and only about a
dozen made it out the door. Almost undoubtedly this was a unit that "slipped
through the cracks" of our recall and I'm sure Bob would make good on it if
it was returned. This is why he has steadfastly refused to allow any one
other than himself to assemble them since and is why they have been
unavailable until he can devote time to making another batch. Other than
this batch the failure rate from all causes including abuse and incorrect
installation has been less than one percent after TWELVE YEARS! Your
incessant nitpicking of Zilla products is counterproductive and I'd suggest
if you can build a better mousetrap then go ahead so we can all critique
your products. You don't seem to like anything but complaining!

Well, I can tell you about a car we had in complete with a FanZilla
which once on, would not switch off, and in fact fired the fans up in
the middle of the night for no reason whatsoever.

The "fault" was blamed on the wiring in that particular car, which I
first checked and did do some repair work, but nothing that should have
affected the Zilla. Without taking the FanZilla apart,, I worked out the
problem was a lack of a pull-down resistor on the sense wire.

I don't like the fan fix either FWIW! It is as Rob said - a big relay in
a box. No idea why it should hum though.
