So I have this bubble fog machine that I bought three or so years ago. When I pulled it out this time and turned it on, the nozzle part wouldn't dip into the bubble solution. It appeared to try, but had some light sound coming from it. It wouldn't even go back all the way to the top. I figured there was something wrong with the gears. And I don't remember if it did this before but It also seemed to have fog coming from other places then just the nozzle. Anyway I took it apart and there is sticky residue on everything and it smells like the fog juice. I found the gear box and it doesn't move smoothly at all. And there is a hole in one of containers with a brown rod kinda growing through it. I don't know if that is supposed to be there either, or have some sort of seal around it.
Anyone with experience would be a great help. I can't afford to have someone fix it, or buy a new one for that matter. So please help me if you can. Advice is appreciated.
Private messages would be easier for me as we'll.


Thanks!

Hey z3ro!
I wish I could help you. Just wanted to let you know that the same exact thing ended up happening to my machine. I bought it probably 4 or so years ago on clearance, tried it out that night, cleaned it up and put it away until this summer.
I'm pretty handy but didn't really feel like dealing with it. I just tossed it.


Should I feel bad? Did you get yours to work?

Still trying to get it to work. This thing was so awesome! But I can't find any help on YouTube either, it seems people aren't interrested in repairing this machine. Which sucks since it seems to be the only one I can find. I bought mine for $40 at Walmart but can't find anywhere else this year that is selling it for the same price. Cheapest was $60. At least I had 3 years out of it. Need to find something soon though. I am grtting ready to have a party.

So after taking it apart and then sticking it all back together, (well for the most part) the nozzle now fully dips down into the bubble fluid chamber. However a lot of smoke comes out and I am wondering if I was supposed to delete it in the first place. However I can't stick the whole machine back together since a few of the screws are stipped and I can't seem to shove it all back into place. So I still think I need a new one, however I think I might get this one to work for now. And I still need to know if it is supposed to have sticky fog residue everywhere on the inside and leak through its sides and front.

Thanks for any more info anyone can provide about this machine, whether they have experiance with this exact one or also need help with theirs. Feel free to post

I feel your pain Z3R0. Just to ease your concerns, I recently opened up my fogger to look for leaks, and it also has the copper rod that appears to be melted or pushing through the air bubble chamber. I believe this is part of the design. I can't help with the broken gears, but I can tell you that these things leak all the time and throw fog juice all over the bottom casing. I started a thread to hopefully help us all fix these issues. You can find it here:
