Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

Been wanting one of these for 6 years, but could never fit it in the budget. Finally got it this year and had my hopes built up too high. Tested it out in the house, and it has a long warm up time. When it finally started fogging, was impressed with how dense the fog was! But it was short lived. It fogs for 36 seconds, and then needs to warm up for 1 minute and 10 seconds. So by the time it comes back on, all the fog is gone. Wish it had a temp sensor that could regulate the heating element better. On a budget, it adds a nice effect, but could be better.

    Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

    I use this fog machine to help create a creepy look in my graveyard scene. You can use ice or dry ice in this machine and get a great effect from it( though dry ice will help keep the fog low longer). I have had my original one for 3-4 years now and bought a second one last year as my decorations have grown and therefore =the area in which I decorate has grown as well.

        Used this two times before it stopped working. It appears the pump stopped working. This is the second fog machine from Spirit that has had the pump go out. The other one was a regular fog machine. I bought a small machine from a regular department store over 5-years ago and it works fine. So I know how to take care of my equipment and properly store them.

        Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

        I bought this last year and only got to use for 5 mins due to rain. It was used in the garage. Went to test to make sure it was working and the pump does not work. Very disapointed with it. When I stored it it was cleaned the way they said and stored in the box. Will not buy this again. Waste of money.

        Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

        I was in search for a fog machine that worked well for our front yard the night of Halloween. This seemed like a good option because it had an ice well that cooled the fog before it disburses from the machine. It works great for the most part.

        COOLING WELL

        The instructions state to watch the ice well every 30 minutes. It's more like every 5 minutes. Other reviews have recommended dry ice but the well is so small that I"m not sure if I could get dry ice that small.

        NOISE

        When we first started this up it made a horribly loud noise, as if something was very wrong. After about a minute it settled out and stopped making the noise. It seems to be fine at this point.

        FOG

        It does generate a nice thick fog. Having a very full ice well keeps it low lying but the minute the ice runs low the fog rises a lot.

        TIME FRAME

        The fogger doesn't run long at all. It runs about 10 seconds and shuts off. I contacted support and they said that is normal operation since it's a safety measure for the unit not to overheat. It's kind of disappointing since at the time it begins to ramp up and do a good job it shuts off. For the price, I would expect a longer run time. I've owned cheaper units where it has run longer.

        Overall, I'm glad that I only bought one to try it out. It's not a total fail but I will keep looking for the perfect one.

          Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

          This is my first time ever buying a fog machine and I did not know that this particular model required ice. The ice holder is extremely small and melts through the ice very, very fast. The fog itself isn't really low-lying as claimed but not too bad. I was also expecting it to keep blowing fog but the machine turns itself off about every 20 seconds and then starts back up again.

          Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

          I bought this item in the Spirit Halloween store and figure I will give it a shot. Got the juice, threw the ice in there and fired it up. In about 3 minutes it started to produce that lovely fog that you wanted, however it didn't even stay close to the ground. It stayed on for maybe 30 seconds before turning itself off. I tried numerous things to try to make it run better to no avail. I went as far as try to make my own chiller for the fog to stay on the ground, however the fog started to leak from the many vents in the machine itself and couldn't get enough into the chiller to see any effect. I would stay far far far far far far away from this product and look for something else. The money is wasted with this fog machine.

          I purchased this fog machine about 2 years ago expecting a great ground fog effect for my patio creating a scary atmosphere with our strobe lights , 2 other fog machines and animatronics for the trick or treaters. When I set the machine up following all directions, nothing barely stayed on the ground, it basically just was a regular fog machine, and I decided to use it as one til' this day. Even though I didn't get the effect I was looking for with the low lying fog, the fog machine still gives off a nice thick fog which looked perfect for our graveyard. In conclusion, it is a good product, but doesn't do what its suppose to.

          My review is to let customers know that I purchased the Cerberus-Three Headed Dog. When you order the prop, it is listed beneath titled "Complete the Look" and there is a suggestion to purchase the fog machine and fluid among other things. Unfortunately, the suggested machine is is not the correct fog machine in which the Cerberus works with. I ordered it along with two gallons of low lying fog and the prop's connection doesn't fit. Thankfully, Spirit suggested an doable return method for me. I appreciated that! Hopefully, you will read this before making the same mistake as I did. The one you need is the 1000 WATT FOG MACHINE and FOG MACHINE FLUID. Just an FYI!

          Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

          I bought one of these quite a few years ago for my outdoor Halloween Cemetery area, using standard refrigerator ice I was sorely disappointed in the fog output, the density just wasn't there, nor did it "hug the ground" for very long. It ended up just like the non low lying foggers, fog blowing upwards into the air and everywhere but in my cemetery. So I opted to give Dry Ice a try, and it worked much better, the dry ice lasted almost 4 times longer than the standard ice cubes from your freezer. Fog was heavier{dense} and stayed low to the ground for a long time. The dry ice method worked out to be the best ice to use in this fog machine. I also used the optional automatic timer, not the one that came with it. The fog was also much colder using dry ice, which fog should be a cool mist, the standard ice cubes, it was still a bit woo warm for my liking and why it wouldn't stay low to the ground. Dry ice fixed the fog density, the nice eerie cool effect that fog should have and kept it low, hugging the ground around my tombstones in the cemetery. Awesome effect. But do watch for a pinched hose, this could cause your pump to burn out if you don't catch it and allow the fogger to run without much fluid passing through the chamber to the nozzle. So if you're getting very little to no fog, turn it off and check your hoses immediately! You may just save your fog machines pump and keep it working for years to come. Mine is over 8 years old, still use dry ice and it's still going just as strong as it did when I purchased it. Since it's not designed for outdoor use, I did put it inside a wooden box with an opening for the fog to escape, it's been in rainstorms and still kept going strong. So as long as you protect it well, use dry ice, I believe this fogger is an excellent fogger for any haunted house, graveyard/cemetery scene, wherever or whatever use you can think to use it for.

              I am sorry to hear that so many people have had problems with their foggers, I've had my 2 foggers for 3 years and never had a problem with either of them. The output is HUGE. I use these in my front yard on Halloween, and fog pours down the street a block away! The only downsides are that the warm-up time is upwards of 6 minutes, and the ice chamber is fairly small so ice melt quickly and needs to be refillled about every 20 minutes.

I take a plastic shallow tote and cover the entire machine except for the nose of the fogger. At night before turning off my display I lay the tote completely over the fogger... Never had any problems and am looking to purchase my third & fourth ones!

              I bought mine probably 8 years ago, same model, same part number. I have never had an issue with it other than the fact it does take a little time to re-heat. Use in low wind (and I mean Zero) wind outside for a very dramtic effect. I replaced the drain line with a longer more flexible hose from a boat store. Must have been made better back then.

                Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

                I have had this machine since beginning of October, I have used it five times so far and it's been really great I have to say, pretty thick fog from spirit, seems to have better use indoors, but using for my outside cemetery front yard and on a non-windy day it works really good. Only negative would be not a fast warm up time and not a whole lot of fog output otherwise so far great!

                  Bought this and tried it for a test run. Extremely noisy, mostly like a vibration. Nothing I did other than shut the machine off would get it to stop vibrating. Added ice to the bin for the low lying fog. Fog would go out about 2 feet and then rise up. Guess low lying fog only applies for the first 2 feet. After about a 20 second burst of fog, machine would have to heat back up again. All fog would rise and disappear before machine was ready again. Store would not let me return machine, only could exchange it for another one since it was used. Figured out a way to return second machine for a refund anyway.

                  Broke one every year.

                  I have too long a story about how quickly and easily this fogger broke.
                  When it worked, it did as advertised, but only plan on it working for a year. As instructed I ran white vinegar through it after using, and it's still broken.
                  Not a good buy. Drop the coin and get a good one. Much more easily repaired when it does need service and it will have a HUGE output of fog.

                  I use this for my graveyard and it makes it look spooky. I love the high output of fog and the thick billows of smoke it produces. I still use it outdoors but only when it is dry out and it still does a pretty good job. I also love the fact that it has a switch on the back to turn it off when not in use. I think it is a great product over all.

                    I bought this for Halloween last year and took it home. I set it up to check it out at home ran it once cleaned it and put it away to use in a couple of weeks. It never worked again. I would not recommend this to anyone who wants a working fog machine!

                    Comments about Spirit Halloween Low Lying Fog Machine:

                    I bought this machine on sale at Spencers to use this upcoming Halloween. It's light weight. It takes about 5 minutes for the first warm up. You can get about a 20 second burst each time it shoots, and it takes about 2 minutes warm up time between bursts. The fog only shoots out about 2 feet from the machine, so if there is any wind it will easily carry the fog away. This effect works much better indoors than outdoors. I filled up the tank, and used this machine nonstop for an hour. I only used maybe 4 oz of Fog Juice! With a full tank it can easily be used multiple nights. If you do use it indoors make sure the smoke alarms are off, or really far away from where you are using it because the fog can make them go off. Also, I recommend using DRY ICE for this machine. Regular ice won't keep the fog down low to the ground for more than 3 seconds. The fog will just rise like a regular fog machine, just slower. Dry Ice will keep the fog LOW to the ground. If you want to produce a lot of fog for a party, look into other machines, or buy at least 2-3 of these machines to use at the same time.

                      I bought this machine 2 years ago for my halloween haunt and it worked wonderful. It was low lying with the ice and looked like mist through the graveyard setup. Stored it for the next year in a cool area and even used the cleaner I was told to get to preserve the machine. Got it out last year and it didnt work. We thought it was the hose bc there was a small hole in it, so we changed it out and it still didnt work. Found out it was the motor and you cant buy a replacement, just need to get a new machine. I feel like I wasted my money and now need to get another one. :/
