quality fan - a little on the noisy side
no assembly instructions but pretty self explanatory - attach the power cord and 2 plastic feet.

Noisier than my air conditioner
The fan moves lots of air at very high speed. Even at the slowest setting, the air speed is uncomfortable if standing within 10 feet of the fan. In addition, even at the slowest setting, the noise drowns out the sound of my air conditioner. I returned the fan. I would recommend this fan for moving air only in a warehouse-type setting.
This thing was really loud and hard to sleep with at night. There are not enough to screws holding the plastic grills down so it rattles. I took some sheet metal screws and drilled the plastic down into the frame. It took care of the problem but Kenmore should've done this, not me.
I agree with other reviewers that this fan seems defective right out of the box. It vibrates, is very loud and actually moves across the blanket chest I put it on and I'm afraid it will fall off in the middle of the night! I don't like the fact that it does not have a handle. I also don't like the switch being in the back - who thought that up? I really don't like the cord being detachable and connecting at the back of the fan. Overall, very poorly designed. I would return it, however, it's nearly impossible to find a fan in New England at the end of September, so we'll have to live with it until spring.
Purchased this item for my mother-in-law who was showing draft horses at our state fair. She was needing a couple of reasonably portable fans to help move some air around. These fans worked well. She was a little disappointed that they did not have a handle and so we had to run some twine through the corner in order to hang them. Fans were definitely not balanced as they shook a lot. I am sure that this is only a problem as they were not set on the ground.
Our ac unit went out this past summer and we needed a few fans, this was at a good price. It's worked real good since we've bought it and I'd buy more like it. The only thing of change is the base seemed to be too narrow it will fall easily if on a high setting.
