Do this by removing the fog fluid reservoir from the machine, and emptying it out. You can save the fluid if it isn't dirty. Mix a solution of white vinegar and distilled water, with a ratio of 1 part vinegar to 8 parts water, which would be approximately 2 tablespoons of vinegar in 1 cup of distilled water. This should be enough cleaner for 1 fog machine.

Why distilled water? Distilled water has its minerals removed. Minerals are bad for fog machines as they tend to coat the inside of the tube, reducing it's diameter and therefore reducing the fog machine's output.

Rinse the fog fluid reservoir out with distilled water. Pour the cleaning solution into the fluid tank. Take the fogger outside. When the fogger is ready, run it (long bursts, but not continuously) until it stops. Repeat this procedure until you run out of solution. The output should start off as thick white smoke and slowly become a very thin haze.

Unplug the fogger and rinse the fluid tank out with distilled water. Refill the tank with distilled water. About a half cup if you're going to use the fogger for fogging soon or about a half tank if you plan on storing the unit.

Take the fogger outside again (If you're not already there). Plug the fogger in and allow it to heat up. When the fogger is ready, run it until it stops. Repeat until you no longer smell vinegar. Please be aware that you MUST get all the vinegar out of the fogger.

Cleaning should be done after running through about 8 uses of the fog machine, or whenever it becomes sluggish.]]>

<![CDATA[Ashly's Chinese Made EQs]]>
However, cosmetics and power switch/cord issues aside, the damn things just does NOT SOUND RIGHT. We own about 12 of the U.S.A. made variety, and each and every one of them sound EXACTLY THE SAME AS THE NEXT. However, this one made in China has an immediate dramatic DROP in output, as compared to any of our U.S.A. units.

Thinking we had a defective unit, we sent it back to Ashly. First time around, they replaced all the sliders, stating on the paperwork that they "did not like the feel of them." You think?

So it comes back, and the damn thing SOUNDS EXACTLY AS IT DID WHEN WE SENT IT BACK. So we package it up and ship it to them again (another $65.00). They bench tested it, and declared it "functional as specified." Functional perhaps, but certainly not to OUR EARS.

After a lengthy "email argument", with a person who states that he is a manager of some sort, we finally gave up on it, and purchased a MADE IN USA unit which is at least 8 years old. And guess what? IT WORKS AND SOUNDS EXACTLY AS IT SHOULD.

The moral of this story, except the obvious (don||t purchase anything new from Ashly anymore, as it is all made in China now)? You get what you pay for. Write a letter to your favorite manufacture of commercial grade sound reinforcement gear and let them know that you will PAY MORE if they will please make their products where they should be made. And this is right here in the good old USA!]]>
