You may need to UNSCREW the front half of you fan guard plastic casing or depress it in a few place if you see notches on the cage itself. Remember the knobs you will be removing to take the blades off to clean will be threaded opposite, one will screw off and on clockwise then other counter clockwise. Be sure FAN is UNPLUGGED BEFORE YOU open it up. Lay all parts in bathtub, Spray with Cleaning foam, pour lots of water over to clean all sides, then let drain and dry in bathtub. Less muss and fess this way!
If the knob is still in tact it will have a shaped hole that fits on the post it came off of. Some knobs, but I am pretty sure not this one, will have a set screw on the side to tighten it down. I am sure it is just a push on compression fit.
first of all unplug while cleaning on .on the sides it should snap together r have clips on it pull apart r lift the snap hindges on hold the blade with 1 hand turn the knob with other clockwise i think wash r take a dust broom to it put back 2 gether
The fan and motor are both easily disassembled with a Phillips screwdriver and some gentle force to remove the blades. Try to use even pressure when removing both the blades and opening the motor housing. The only questions are whether to flush the existing lubricant out of the bearings and what to replace it with. If you know what to use it shouldn't be a problem. If anyone could suggest an oil or grease, please do.
