Re: Repairing Caframo Sirocco fans

The older ones must be of better quality. We have newer Scirrocco and Bora fans, and they are all crap. Main problem is rattling of the blades. I take them apart to clean and lube but it recurs far too quickly.

Re: Repairing Caframo Sirocco fans

I have a sirocco that is going on 3 years old, it runs 10 to 12 hours a day 7 days a week, 8 months a year. So far no problems, I hate to hear these reviews because I really like the fan. If it does shoot craps I would probably replace with a Hella Turbo or maybe the Caframo hatch fan, forgot the name.
