HOW To Clean?

  1. Firstly, when there is still fog fluid remaining in the tank, do not rush to turn off the equipment. Let the fog machine continue running until the fuel is used up. This step helps to clean the internal pipes, prevent liquid residue, and create better conditions for the next use.
  2. If there is too much remaining liquid, consult the supplier to see if the smoke machine you purchased can remove the tank to pour out the remaining fog oil. If it can, store the remaining fluid for the next use; if the tank cannot be removed, ensure that the next activity interval is not too much, or do not pour in too much smoke fluid next time.
  3. If the tank can be removed, rinse the tank with clean water after pouring out the liquid, and store it after drying to prevent the accumulation of scale.
  4. After using the smoke machine, the body would not have too many stains. If there are any, you can wipe the body with a dry cloth.
  5. After handling the smoke oil in the tank, prepare this simple and magical formula: a 1:20 ratio mix of water and white vinegar. This is not only a cleaning method but also a ritual to give the smoke machine a new life. Pour the mixed solution into the tank, turn on the machine switch, and spray smoke.
  6. After completing the previous step, pour out the cleaning solution.


Except following the proper cleaning steps, it is also essential to follow our instruction manual when using your fog machine. Correct usage procedures can also extend the lifespan of the fog machine.

Common Issues

  • The oil pump is unable to extract oil?
    -The possibility of oil pump failure is very small. Unless you use it before the smoke machine has finished heating! Preheat until “ready” is displayed before starting work.
    -The machine cannot dry extract continuously, make sure there is fuel in the tank.
    -Ensure you are using high-quality smoke oil, otherwise internal machine parts will be very susceptible to blockage by impurities or oil residue in the fuel, leading to failure.
  • Fog machine produces low volume!
    Check whether the oil pump or temperature controller is blocked by impurities, then consult the supplier!
