Pay attention to these three points when choosing an electric fan
Electric fans are widely recognized by consumers due to their low energy consumption, affordable prices, and convenient use. However, based on the inspection results of electric fan products, some electric fans have problems such as unclear identification, large gap between mesh covers, thin power lines, some parts that do not meet the requirements for heat and fire resistance, and weak stability, which pose varying degrees of safety risks.
Here, the Market Supervision and Administration Bureau of Jiaojiang District, Taizhou City, Zhejiang Province, in conjunction with the District Consumer Protection Commission, reminds consumers to pay attention to the following points when choosing electric fans:
Electric fans belong to the national 3C mandatory certification product. After selecting a suitable type of electric fan, it is necessary to check whether there is a CCC mandatory certification mark on the product label or nameplate, whether there is a legitimate manufacturer, registered trademark, electrical parameters, and whether there is information such as a certificate of conformity and manual attached.
At the time of purchase, a preliminary inspection of the appearance of the electric fan should be carried out, and the plastic surface should be smooth, uniform in color, and free from obvious spots, scratches, and indentations. The surface of metal parts should be treated with rust prevention, without burrs or sharp edges, and the gap between the mesh covers should not be too large. Generally, adult fingers cannot reach moving parts such as fans through the mesh covers.
When purchasing, all functions of the electric fan should be turned on and tested one by one. Attention should be paid to whether there is any abnormal noise or noise when the electric fan operates in different gears. The motor and fan blades should be stable, with little vibration and low noise. For electric fans with abnormal noise, noise or vibration, they should be purchased with caution. For floor fans, their lifting function should also be checked for flexibility.
Finally, it is reminded that consumers should remember to request purchase vouchers or service documents such as invoices when purchasing and repairing, so that they can use them as proof of rights protection when they discover that their legitimate rights and interests are damaged in the future.
