What does this misting fan do?
A misting fan works like a regular fan, except it blows out mist with the air it produces. The fan is connected to a water source that could either be a tank or a hose. Nozzles are what the mist is usually sprayed out of, but in the case of the MF24B, a centrifugal misting system is what disperses the mist, eliminating any issues of clogged nozzles.
Why should I use this misting fan?
If you need an outdoor solution to the heat, a misting fan will get the job done. It adds moisture to dry environments and eliminates airborne dust by weighing dust particles down with water droplets.
Where exactly can I use this misting fan?
Outdoor use is the most common application for misting fans. Versatile models like the MF24Bcan be used in both residential and light commercial settings such as:
- Pool decks
- Grilling areas
When considering climate, misting fans, including the MF24B, are better for dry climates and not necessarily recommended for high humidity areas because the mist doesn't come out as cool. However, misting fans are a slightly better choice for humid weather than evaporative coolers are because they don't corrode as easily.
Which is a better water source, tank or hose?
That is up to you, depending on what you value in a misting fan. Here are some pros and cons of tanks and hoses to help you decide which is better for you personally.
Pros of water tank:
- Enables better portability of your misting fan
- Beneficial in places not close to a water source
Cons of water tank:
- Limited operation time before the tank needs to be refilled
- Must be cleaned regularly, and if not, runs the risk of mold growth
Pros of water hose:
- Unlimited supply of water, you won't have to worry about stopping the fan to refill a tank
- Usually less expensive than models with water tanks
Cons of water hose:
- Less portability for your fan because placement depends on where your hose is located and how far it extends.
How do I clean the MF24B ?
- Always unplug the misting fan from the power supply before servicing or cleaning.
- Use a soft cloth and a solution of mild soap and warm water to clean the fan's exterior. Do not use harsh cleaners, gasoline, paint thinner, benzene, etc., as these substances can damage the misting fan.
- Thoroughly dry all of the fan's parts with a soft cloth before reconnecting the unit to a power supply.
- Drain the water tank after the misting fan has been in use. Regular, scheduled cleaning of the water tank and misting plate before each use is also recommended.
- To clean the water tank, open the tank cover, remove the pump and then remove the tank from the base. Always remember to remove the pump before cleaning the water tank.
- If the misting fan will not be in use for an extended period of time, empty the water tank, cover the unit and keep it stored in a clean, dry place.
How often should I clean the MF24B?
After every use.
When your misting fan arrives, you will see that it comes in more than one box. You will have to assemble it yourself.
- 4 M6x16 screws
- large washers
- small washers
- stand pole
- fan base
- water pump
- metal pipe
- fan head
- water tank
1. Refer to diagram 1 below. Remove the following parts from the fan's base and set them aside: four (4) M6x16 screws, large washers, small washers, and nuts.
2. Place the stand pole on the fan base, align the screw holes and secure the pole in place using the screws, washers and nuts. Make sure the hole located near the bottom of the stand pole is facing the square shaped pump slot.
1. Refer to diagram 2. Find the rectangular panel located on the back of the stand pole. Remove this back panel from the stand pole by completely unscrewing it from the stand pole. Set it aside.
2. Locate the water pump. This is packaged separately from the stand pole and can be found in box #1. You will see 2 water hoses (1 large and 1 small) and 1 electric wire connected to the water pump. Thread the hoses and wire into hole A (smaller, circular hole) and up the stand pole through hole B (larger, elliptical shaped hole).
3. Locate the back panel removed in step 1 and orient it so that the label with the fan speeds is located on top of the dial.
4. Take the small water hose from hole B and locate the connector that is attached to the back panel. Connect the small water hose to the lower valve opening on the connector.
1. Refer to diagram 3. Locate the metal pipe and fan head and attach the fan head onto the pipe. The fan head should have 2 water hoses (1 large and 1 small) and 1 electric wire with male connector plug connected to it.
2. Take the electric wire with the male connector that is located on the back of the fan head and thread it through hole D.
3. Take the large water hose with 2 smaller water hoses within it and thread the entire piece through hole C. You should now have the water hoses and electric wire coming out the end of the metal pipe.
1. Refer to diagram 4. Place the stand pole/base on a level surface.
2. Take the water hoses and electric wire from the fan head/pipe and thread them through the top of the stand pole. Do not attach the fan head to the stand pole yet.
3. Connect the male and female connector plugs together.
4. Take the small water hose from the fan head/metal pipe and connect it to the other valve opening attached to the back panel.
5. Locate the large water hose from the fan head/metal pipe and connect it to the large connector with the quick release valve.
6. Attach the fan head/metal pipe onto the stand pole and thread all hoses and wires into the stand pole through hole B (elliptical shaped hole on the stand pole). Make sure none of the hoses or wires are bent.
7. Reattach the screws onto the back panel.
8. Tighten the bolts located on the sleeve by the back panel to secure the stand pole and fan head/pipe together.
1. Refer to diagram 5. Take the water pump and place it in the pump slot.
2. Locate the water tank and place it on the fan base, making sure to line up the pump opening with the pump slot so that they fit together. Place any protruding hoses or wires into the tank.
3. Put the tank cover over the tank.
1. This misting fan can operate with optimal output in temperatures up to 104°F.
2. Lift up the tank cover and fill the tank with clean water.

Keep in mind that the effectiveness of this misting fan improves as the temperature rises, but in areas with high humidity levels, you may want to use the fan with the misting function turned off for the best results.
What kind of water should I put in my misting fan?
Regular tap/hose water is fine to use for your misting fan, as long as you regularly clean and maintain the unit, making sure that there is no hard water damage or calcium build-up. Filtered and distilled water can also work well, but there is little practicality in using either to fill the tank of the MF24B, since they are not as abundantly available as tap water, and should be used for drinking instead.
How long will the water tank last?
The Luma Comfort MF24B Misting Fan is equipped with a 2 gallon tank at its base to accommodate for a maximum of 4 hours of continuous running time . This time depends on which speed setting you use. There are 3 speed settings to choose from.
How can I make my misting fan run longer?
To maximize the MF24B 's run time, you can set it to the lowest fan speed, which will conserve water usage more than the other two settings. The lower the setting, the longer the misting fan will run for.
What happens when the tank runs out of water?
Nothing. You will notice that the fan is running, but there is no mist coming out. This means the tank has run out of water.
These instructions are not meant to cover every possible condition and situation that may occur. Please read all instructions before using this misting fan. Failure to carefully read all instructions may result in possible electric shock or fire hazard, and will void the manufacturer's warranty.
