Re: Cleaning a 14F0 Honeywell Fan
Thank you for using fixya. The blade cage has locks and screws that you can remove from the back. once the cage has been removed, you can remove the blade attached to the motor using a vacuum cleaner or you can remove the blades by undoing the screw on the center detaching it from the motor.

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.
Did you just clean the fan? If while cleaning, you bent a fan blade, even a hair it will shake. Blades are perfectly balanced. Moving one just a hair, will cause the fan to shake. Trying to re=balance the blade(s) is futile, you can get it close, but it will take somr patience. If the fan has built up dust on the blade(s) will begin to shake if some blew off unevenly
I have had good results using a product called Scott's Liquid Gold. It's available in many stores including grocery stores. I started using it to clean up console televisions after repairing them. Make sure you wipe it clean after using it. The residue will attract dust if you don't. It's sort of a "super Pledge"
Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws. If the fan still wobbles, Unscrew the blade and unconnect the blade from blade iron. Buy the new blade iron. If the blade is broken, Also buy the new blade.
This would seem to be the motor heating up and cutting out on a thermal overload. Check to see if the motor area is clean and that the fan blades are clean. To clean the motor you can blow compressed air through it. To clean the blades disassemble the cover remove the blade and clean with a mild soapy solution.
