Very stinky headwind fan

Hi Folks, I’ve had a Headwind fan for a couple months. (I LOVE it) However, it had and Still has a Very Very strong new plastic product smell. Smells Toxic. I’ve even left it outside on porch for 2 nights, and it still smells. Has anyone else had this issue?

Mine doesn’t have that smell, but I also don’t remember anything like that when I first got it…

I wonder if something plastic inside is melting? I’d recommend contavting Customer Support.


Same here. I never had a smell come from my Headwind, new or later.

Thanks for chiming in. Im gonna return it to REI and get a non Stinky one.:face_with_hand_over_mouth::face_with_open_eyes_and_hand_over_mouth::smile:
