Some one gave me the fan. when i put it together it make a noise, so taking it apart, find that the black fan inside, some of the blades were broken at one end of blades, so after glueing them, it now works fine, but would like to know where i could order that part.

Hi, if you look inside the grill from the back side, you will see there are small snaps inside near the edge of the cover. The snaps go around the entire cover and are about 3-4" apart.
I used a flat tip screwdriver to get push the tab up from the back and the inside of the grill. When you push up the tab a bit, then slide a small flat tip screwdriver on the outside lip of the front grill. You will have to do this all the way around until the cover snaps off. Putting it back on is a breeze because it just snaps together.

Hope this helps.... =)
Flip open the latches around the cage to open that part up. Once open, turn the knob in the middle of the blade to the right. Normally iyou turn it left, but on this ne you turn right. That enables yo to remove the blade. Behind the blade is a rather large plastic nut, which you turn to remove and that takes the back part of the screen off. Use your vacuum to vacuum out the dust from the motor, the cages, and the fan blade. After that use a mild soap and water solution to wipe off the rest. I found it very helpful if you use a thick wet hand towel to clean the wire cage. It cleans it very well! Then just put it all back together again and your fan will look brand new.
yes you can take apart and blow it out good, just look for the screws to take the outer part off. then remove fan blade if need be, most just pull off of motor shaft. oil the shaft on the motor on each end, you can use a 3 in 1 oil. and blow the entire fan out good even the inside of motor, if you can and just put it back together. I have done this many times and the fan works just fine. have a good day !
This will take some work, and some elbow grease, but what happened is the motor bushings most likely seized. Try turning the blades with your hand. If they are stiff, the bushings are seized. What you will have to do is take the fan apart. First by removing the blades, then by taking the motor off of the frame. Then depending on the type of bolts/ screws that hold the motor together, remove them. Then split the motor apart by taking a flat blade screwdriver and sliping it between the two pieces of the motor and turning it so they slip apart. then once the motor is apart, shine up and clean the motor's shaft so it is clcan and shiny. then do the same for the bushing/ beringholes in the motor's casing. then drip some oil in the berings, and on the motor shaft, and put the motor back together. then put it back on the frame, and plug the fan in. turn it on. the shaft should just spin without any help. if this does spin, put the blades back on, and put the guard back on. Then you sucessfully rebuilt the motor and the fan!
If this one is like mine (and it looks just like it except my Lasko doesn't have the wood grain on the front) there is no filter inside. It is just a fan inside a plastic case.
If you want to clean it, you can try blowing it out with compressed air if you have a powerful enough compressor. If you really want to clean it, you will have to take it apart and that isn't as simple as it sounds if your unit is just like mine.
There are a bunch of screws on the back, which isn't too bad except one of them is a triangle headed "security screw" that is probably there to keep you from taking it apart. I looked at several stores and couldn't find a screwdriver to fit the stupid thing. So what I did was that I took out the rest of the screws, pried the case open as far as I could with my hands and cut the support that the last screw was attached to from inside with a strong pair of wire cutters.
I figured that when I put it back together, I wouldn't miss that one screw and I wouldn't want to deal with a triangle head screw every time I took it apart in the future anyway.
Once the case is apart, I found the best way to clean the blades is to remove the whole blade assembly and just wash the thing out in the tub and let it dry thoroughly before putting it back in. There's a metal brace (Held on by two screws) at the top the top spindle goes into and there's a single screw on the shaft of the motor that hold the bottom spindle in. It probably sounds more complicated than it is. It's pretty simple when you see it.
If you put it back together right, you almost can't do anything wrong. You might want to take a damp cloth and wipe down the interior of the case and the shrouds that surround the blades as well. If you've had it a while, they'll be dirty. You'll see/feel the dirt wherever it is. This thing is a pretty simple machine and is easy to clean once you figure it out. I put a few drops of oil on the top spindle when I put mine back together.
There should be a black round nut in front of the blades in the very center. It will have ribs on it so you can grab it. Turn it Counter clockwise, and it should unscrew.
Then you can remove the blade assembly and get to the back cage to tighen the screws. This should take care of the problem. Re assemble in reverse order. Let me know if you have any more questions or if this doesnt work. Good luck.
