The front wire grating has hooks all around the edge that latch onto the rear grating. You need at least two screwdrivers, blades or thin & stiff shims to pry half the hooks off. Do this by inserting your shims between the front and rear grates, on either side of a hook. Then, lever your shims such that the rear grate warps enough to free a hook and let it pass in front. (Note: this IS difficult; the first hook will not want to clear the rear grate. It helps to have an extra pair of hands, and/or another object to temporarily keep the first hook seperated. It may also be possible to start with three shims and clear two hooks in the beginning). Continue clearing the hooks in a consecutive fashion (they're progressively easier) until half of them are off, at which point the front grate should come off using a little muscle. A couple notes: if available, a plastic shim is preferable over a metal one because it shouldn't damage the nice finish as much (alternatively, wrap your shims in cloth). It is NOT necessary to remove the whole fan cage from the stand to do this. Expect the reverse process to be equivalently challenging. Please wear safety glasses in case your shim breaks or slips. Lastly, good luck if you try to lubricate the shaft. I've tried multiple substances, but day-long blowing continually dries out the lubricant.

How do you clean the dust from the inside of the fan? is there a way to remove either the front or the back so that it can really be cleaned?

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 !

How to open fan to clean blades honeywell model

first remove the two screws on the back top of fan... then remove little cover on third screw which is located on the bottom of the outer casing.. i used a fork to poke the hole for leverage then pull it out... take out the three screws on the bottom (that hold the stand part of the fan).. now you can start removing the casing.. start to pull apart.. carefully... once you have opened one part you can use a flathead or a butter knife to pry open where there are clips on the sides.. the final clip is under the handle poke that one and your fan should be opened....

The fan has hair and dust trapped inside so it can't turn correctly... it takes awhile to start up and has trouble turning. Is there any way to take it apart to clean it?

just had the exact same problem. there's 6 screws to remove along the back side of the fan grill, 4 of them are philip and 2 of them torx. don't know why they didn't just make them all the same! once the screws are out, you can take off the faceplate. you can then clean most of the fan, however it will be difficult to clean the area near the motor.

How do you clean with a heating element?

it has to be taken apart and you need to blow compressed air through the front. dust particles get trapped between the fan and the heater element.
