Operating Instructions
Always be sure to maintain an adequate supply of American
DJ® Brand Fog Juice™ in the fluid reservoir. Running the fog
machine dry will cause pump failure and or clogging. This is the
largest cause of failure in fog and haze machines. Only American
Fog Juice™ is recommended and not all fog juice is created
Remote Operation: The remote control comes connected to the
fog machine but can be removed to access the 25 foot cord. Once
the machine is plugged in and turned on, a red power L.E.D. on the
remote will glow indicating the unit is receiving power. The unit has
a warm up time of five (5) minutes. After the unit has warmed up, a
GREEN L.E.D. on the remote will light indicating the unit is ready to
emit fog. To emit fog, simply press the green button on the remote
for desired length of time. If the GREEN L.E.D. is on and fog does
not come out after holding the button down for 30 seconds, check
the fluid tank and hose to make sure there is fluid going through the
Optional Timer: You can also operate the fog output automatically
by purchasing the optional timer remote. The timer function allows
haze to be emitted at designated intervals. The remote has three
(3) L.E.D.s that indicate different functions; The YELLOW L.E.D. will
indicate the timer is off and not activated. The RED L.E.D. indicates
power is on. The GREEN L.E.D. indicates fog output is available. The
remote also contains two rotary knobs. The Duration knob serves
two functions 1) Turns the timer on and off. 2) Sets the timers duration (Length of fog output). The interval knob sets the amount of time
in between fog output from 30 seconds to 10 minutes. Turing these
knobs in a clockwise direction will increase there values, turning
them in a counter-clockwise direction will decrease their values.
Caution: Before removing or replacing the remote control unit

Machine™ liquid. Clean Machine is recommended when storing your
fogger for more than 1 week, or at least once a month as normal

build up in the heater and gives longer life to the fog machine. Clean
