Pathetic Wings Fan

After about 4 years, 7 out of 8 of my 5-blades Wing ceiling fans had problems with the speed control (no LOW or MEDIUM control, only HIGH).

I called up Wing and they sent a technician. He said that he needed to replace the electronic portion of all the fans (before he even check or take a look at a single fan). Looked like they knew it all along that the problem would be the electronics.

To replace the electronic part, I need to pay RM60 for each replacement, and I need to give them back the old electronic part. I asked him why need to give back the old part, he says it is their company policy. WTF!!!

In the end, I only replaced 1 fan and decided not to replace the rest. Lets just say, I will NEVER ever buy a Wing ceiling fan again or any Alpha products again. Ptui!

the pcb actually can be repaired, thats why they took back the old old repaired and sell back to customer, i guess

Yeah, I guess so. In the end, got all of them repaired at my neighborhood electronic shop for RM20 apiece. Still working after 8 years.
