I was successful in cleaning my Aloha Tower fan yesterday. I took out the screws from under the handle and the one at the lower part of the fan that is covered with a screw cover. I then removed the black cylinder by removing two screws from a brass colored plate at the top of the black cylinder and one screw from the bottom of same. The cylinder can then be taken out completely and everything is easier to clean. I put it back together and it is working great
I have am Aolha Breeze Fan Model 87001 and i do not have the instruction manual and can not find find any # on the internet to reach the company to obtain one. All I basically want to know is how do I clean it? Any help would be appreciated.

Usually there would be a few screws in the base that need to be taken out and the outer case pulls out. This will expose the fan and filters inside. Hopefully that will allow you to clean the inside. Would not spray any cleaning agents. Just a light vacuum and wipe with clean moist cloth.
Our HY-108 (not a HY-108TGT) does not have a filter when it was purchased new from a Retailer.
IMHO, Honeywell/KAZ designed these Tower Fans to be disposable if they fail to work or need cleaning.
These Fans are hard to disassemble for service or maintenance, OEM replacement Parts are unavailable to the general public, service documentation is hard to find, and the Tower Fans tend to have a short Product lifespan. THEY BREAK EASILY! The OEM Service Manual points to replacing complete parts assemblies because few electronics diagnostics and no schematics are provided.
The HY-108 case can start to be disassembled (I have done so on ours) by *First* removing the screws and separating/removing the plastic Base from the main Case assembly. *Second* remove the Phillips-Head screws on the back of the Case. *Third*, the internal plastic 6 Tabs that keep the 2 halves held together need to be gently separated - careful, they break easily. You need to gently loosen the internal plastic "Tabs" by using a thin flat-head screwdriver to gently and carefully separate the outer shell cover.
Clean your air tower fan by using small paint brush and wet rag(s). Turn off power and unplug, then open the fan by using screw driver either flat or crossed type. Eliminate dust and dirt using paint brush and rub it with wet rags. When disassembling put screws in box and be observant so that you'll able to assemble it later. Do not wipe motor with wet rags only the propeller, front back cover and so on. Good luck.
there had to be reason the Fan was not to be disassembled .... yes you will need to buy a new unit... MOLD as you is bad thing. If you're allergic to Mold. you be hard pressed to disinfect the whole unit. for sure you will miss some of the Mold. It will come back.. The Mold is due to too much moisture/ Humidity. on top of getting new Fan unit you will need to get Dehumidifier, to remove the moisture in the room...
If dust collects in the new fan. at least you will able to clean out the dust.... if some of the screws look like a star and not a phillips, you can find 1 at hardware store. take a picture of it with your phone. show it the hardware girl or guy. they will be able show what you need to Disassembling the Fan. good luck shopping list
