Product: American DJ Fog Storm 1700HD
The bottom line, I would not buy it again and would not recommend it to others.
First, product specifications do not appear to represent the unit accurately.
Examples:
* 1,700W High output professional fog machine

Wrong, with 116V (Pulls the 120V wall voltage down to 116V) input mine draws 1448 Watts while heating and goes up to 1508 W when making fog.
1500W I could have bought another brand 1500W machine for less money. A call to American DJ (A DJ) revealed these units vary from 1460 W to 1700 W. So mine is considered within acceptable power range.

* Electronic Thermo Sensing (ETS): electronic heater stays hot at all times with no warm-up time between fog blasts

Wrong, mine outputs fog for 15 seconds then has to reheat for 68 seconds before it can output again. A call to American DJ revealed I got a better one, most only output fog for 13 seconds before needing to stop and reheat.

* 15,000 Cubic feet per minute fog output

Yeah right, if it could fog continuously for 60 seconds it might have a chance. But since it only outputs fog for 15 seconds before needing to stop and reheat for 68 seconds, there is no way this rate could be true. Even assuming all mfgs weasel on the cu ft / min number, as in how dense is the fog each is claiming to measure, if you can't run for a minute you don't make 15,000 per minute.

Add to this customer service that doesn't call back with answers when they say they will, and email asking ADJ how the machine should be prepared for storage going unanswered.
Combined makes me say, move on, this is not the fog machine you are looking for.

This machine lasted about 1 hour without a problem. During that time frame the fog output was awesome. Then, in the middle of Halloween night the temperature sensor got stuck open and would not turn the heating element on. I replaced the sensor for the following year and it worked for about 30 minutes on Halloween night last year before the same thing happened. After Halloween last year I ran a bypass switch of the sensor in case it got stuck again. This means I will loose my automatic setting and will have to manually press the button every time I want fog. It's better than nothing I thought. I went to test it today for this upcoming Halloween and low and behold the fluid sensor that detects when the machine is running low on fluid and shuts it off is stuck in the low fluid position. Now the machine will not fog because it thinks it is out of juice. I have had half a dozen of the cheap box store fog machines and have had a lot less trouble out of all of them combined compared to this one machine.

These Fog Storm's have a flaw with their heaters giving out once the unit has been in the on position and not used after a while. You will inevitably forget to turn off the machine and it will not work when you try using it again. You would think that it should automatically sense that the unit is idle and turn off the heater but it doesn't. Another issue is the empty tank sensor getting stuck and not allowing the fog machine to run. Do yourself a favor, invest the 400+ dollars and buy a martin or something higher end if you plan on using your fog machine more than once.

Terrible. It stopped working after 2 months. This is the second one of these I had that didn't make it longer than a year. I should have read the other bad reviews. This will be the last ADJ fogger I ever buy.

if you really want to be in the same boat as the many of us that are having to play with dead fog machines, then purchase one. I have had 3 units replaced in 3 years. Thank god I purchased the extended coverage. DO NOT BUY ONE WITHOUT THE EXTENDED COVERAGE! These units will break guaranteed. It just may be in a few months or 1-2 years, but they will die. There is a definite defect. They do put out a good amount a fog when they work. I think because they keep the heater element super hot all the time, they just burn up.... Good luck, you have been warned by me and several others. P.S. It's always broke the day I need to use it, and I pull it out of the garage and head to the gig. Bam, get to the gig and no fog. Customers gets upset. Now I pull it out a few days prior. However, 2 have died at a gig! go figure.

This is a piece of junk! I wasted hundreds of dollars just to have it work for one night! It put out tons of fog for about an hour then something broke. They should recall this product to keep their company in business. Amazon should seriously think about pulling this item. Other reviewers had the same problems!!!!
