The weekend before Christmas or somewhere around in there, my family had our cooking day, and when I left the house, I left one lamp and a little radio on. Just to keep the pups company. When I got home neither was on. I checked the power cord, etc. and the plug is dead. I can deal for now, but I would rather have it working.
I paid in advance earlier this year to have an outdoor ceiling fan installed in my garage without actually having the ceiling fan because I wanted to find one NOT made in China. Well since the plug went out, I did some more research and just couldn’t find one. I wanted to call the electrician out to change the plug and install the fan. I pulled the trigger on a very cheap fan and hoping that the vagueness of the website would turn out to be something not made in China. It arrived and I was wrong.
I haven’t called the electrician yet. Today I see that a question I left on a fan maker’s web site was answered. Their fans are manufactured in the USA of imported parts. I can live with that. The company is Fanimation. I can get that fan, along with a light kit, for just a little more than I paid for the Chinese one. I could get it online or I found a local store that sells their products. The problem is that I have already gotten rid of all the paperwork for the fan I bought.
In writing this post, I think I should check Amazon again. I bought it there, along with signing up for some special thingy that got me free shipping which I don’t need anymore, but maybe it has something about returns. . .
Even though I’ve already broken down the box the fan came in, I still have the one the dehydrator came in, so I could send it back. I’ll figure this out by Friday.
Today was a rain day. Poor miserable outside kittens. Tomorrow won’t be such a rain day, so I can clean the garage and work in the yard. Friday will be another rain day, so I can go out and look at fans, mail back the fan I have if I can and look into some crushed gravel for the walkways between the beds.
If I can’t send the fan back, I’ll sell it, along with the tiller and generator in the spring.
