  2. Grr… Went from 3 to 1 fog machine

    General Halloween
    Figures, just when I thought I was going to have 3 fog machines this year… A couple of months ago, I tested our main fog machine and it was fine. The cheap 400W Chauvet and the 1000W no-name brand I got from Goodwill had seized up, so I put a 50/50 vinegar solution in and ran them, which...
  3. Fog: Chauvet 1400

    Halloween Props
    I'm looking for a new fog machine. Right now there are several vendors that have factory refurbished Chauvet 1400s with a timer for $120. The 1400 is recently discontinued. It's a great price for a pretty high capacity machine. Does anyone have one, and if so how do you like it? Thanks!

    Hey all, I'm finally pulling the trigger on a new fog machine this year (thinking about a Chauvet 1301) but wanted to see if anyone knows of anything new and/or better that has come out recently which I should consider instead. Thanks.
  5. What can you tell me about the Chauvet Hurricane 900 fog machine

    Halloween Props
    So I found 2 brand new (one just used to test it the other never opened) Chauvet Hurricane 900 fog machines with remotes and timers at a yard sale today along with 2 gallons of swamp juice from froggy.com. Paid $50 for all. Did I get a good deal? Or did I get suckered? I've tried to see if I...

  9. Fog: Fogger question

    Halloween Props
    Hello all. My yard is cut in half by my walkway, so each part is 30 by 40 feet. Should I go with a 700 watt fogger which is 4000cfm or more? Will a good brand like Chauvet 400 watt fogger be able to keep that size area covered in fog or is 400 watt too small? Im planning on running 1 fogger for...
  10. What broke or what didn't work?

    General Halloween
    As usual something always breaks or doesn't work. This year was 3 of the 4 Chauvet fog machines. Man these things suck. Every year 1 or more doesn't work but the cheap ones work without fail year after year. Done buying Chauvet stuff. So what broke or didn't work for y'all?

    Halloween Props
    I've created this thread to record my experience getting my Chauvet 1300 working. Hopefully it will help someone else.

  14. Fog: Anyone ever used a 1 by one fogger

    Halloween Props
    I need an upgrade to a 1000 plus watt machine this year. Amazon has a 1500watt one by one for $99. I've read that build quality can be an issue but the output of this machine is good. I have looked at chauvet and I have a 700. My budget is only 100-130ish. If you've used any one by one what did...

  16. Fog: Chauvet 700 timer...who sells them?

    Halloween Props
    Does anyone know where I can pickup a timer for the Chauvet 700? It seems the most common one only works with models 900 and up? Is a timer even necessary? I'm thinking about it because my fogger and chiller will not be in a convenient location for me to keep pushing the button or hold it...

  19. Fog: Both fog machines dead...coil issues?

    Halloween Props
    I know everyone is busy prepping for this evening but I'm hoping someone has some insight as to why my fog machines aren't working. Pulled them both out of storage and when I press the fog button, they click (relay works) and hum (not vibrate like usual) but nothing happens. I disassembled the...
