In fact you can have the entire fan unboxed, set up and misting within 15 minutes. Plus it only requires 1 person & a Phillip's screwdriver. The fan does come unassembled and include all the following parts:

  • Front Grill

Assembly itself is straightforward and simple. Using the included hardware, just attach the external pole to the base, then the after assembling the fan head connect it to the motor housing. The water hose is already connected, so it really is a hassle free setup. Once the unit is together, all you'll need to do is connect the water hose which is around 6 Ft long directly to the water line. You are also in full control of the misting pressure. It is recommended that you turn the water on all the way, as it allows you to have a better gage on the pressure of the water that eventually turns to mist. The amount of mist put out by the AF-520B can be adjusted at the bottom of the water valve connected to the water hose. Simply turn the knob to the desired misting level and you're done. Please note that this unit can function with & without the misting function turned on. For extra sealing we recommend that you use Teflon tape around the connection of the water value and water line.

This easy to manage and beautifully designed misting fan also comes equipped with a rain proof plug, therefore allowing you to leave it outside for long periods of time without worrying about electrical safety.

Usage & Features

Once you set up the fan and are connected to a water line, you're ready to start misting. To turn the unit on, simply plug it in and make sure to press on both buttons on the plug. Then using the user friendly push button controls choose from 3 speeds:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High

Once you have selected your speed, you can turn on the misting system by adjusting the water valve to your desired pressure selection. This will turn on the misting nozzles, which will then begin to create mist. The AF-520B also has an oscillation feature allowing the fan head to move Up & Down and Left & Right. It is extremely easy to turn on the oscillation feature, which is controlled by a clutch to the reverse of the unit to turn on Pull Up on the clutch and to turn off simply Push Down on the clutch.

The height of this versatile and customizable misting fan can also be adjusted to suit all personal preferences and settings. It's easy and simple to adjust the height, which offers a high point of 4.5 Ft and a low point of 3.75 Ft. The low point makes it perfect for using as a regular electric fan indoors.


One of the highlights of the AF-520B Misting Fan from NewAir is the limited maintenance required. The fan motor is covered and protected from all elements. The fan is mainly designed and constructed of coated and durable plastic, which protects it from rust and other corrosion. However it is still recommended that you cover the unit during extreme weather conditions, or move it out of the elements altogether.

If you are going to use hard water then the nozzles and water line may clog up over time, as calcium and other minerals build up within. It is recommended that you clean these at least once a month. Our experts recommend using CLR or Vinegar water during the cleaning process. Be sure to unplug the fan before performing any cleaning.

Here is a step by step guideline how to clean the water hose yourself.

  1. Remove the fan head from the house.
  2. Remove the misting nozzles from the frame, use a pair of needle nose pliers to twist each nozzle counterclockwise.
  3. Once the nozzles are removed you can then pull out the misting assembly from the back of the cover.
  4. The nozzle holders can be clicked off by carefully pulling on them. The needle nose pliers could help in the process.
  5. Once the hose assembly is removed you can then run the hose line out the bottom of the frame.
  6. Now that the hose assembly is removed the customer can then proceed by dipping the hose assembly in CLR or Vinegar water hose is cleaned.
  7. To clean the nozzles you simply need to remove them and steep them in any of the above solutions for efficient cleaning.
  8. To clean the exterior unit, all you need is a soft cloth and a solution of mild soap and warm water. Be sure to dry all surfaces completely before using the unit again.

If on the other hand you are not going to use hard water, then the maintenance is going to be extremely limited and you will only be required to clean the nozzles and water line every few months and prior to storing it away. The AF-520B from NewAir also comes with 2 extra nozzles.
