How to clean the blower wheel/housing

Can I remove the clevis pin holding the blade assembly so I can remove the blades for cleaning. I have tried to do it while it's still in place and there is no way to do a proper job.

Blower is working, but makes a medium to high pitch sound


Blocked or dirty filters or grease buildup on the fan blades. It may also be the bearings in the fan motor are wearing out. Most rangehoods , only have the motor assembly as a spare part.

Remove the motor together with the blower wheel, go to the local self service car-wash and use the engine de-greaser cycle (if not available, buy a can at the auto supply, spray the fan blade and let sit for a while) and get all the grease of the fan blades. make sure the fan blades are cleaned thoroughly. the fan will now ran quietly and will remove all the grease away. in the future, clean the filters often.

Hi,
When you took the filter out to clean it you got something against the fan blade....probably when you reinstalled the filter,,,pull it back out and try the fan... if it works then you know the filter is installated wrong...

Installed a new blower motor assembly. Alot of vibration. What's wrong. I installed properly. Mike


Mike a few problems could cause this problem. even though the assem is new is the wheel out of balance if it spins freely and you can see that there is no wobble then disreguard this but I have found time and time again that the part recieved is warped next possible is travel on the shaft is there any give or movement of the fan blade on the shaft this once again happens frequently. next is the shaft may be bent this is infrequent but does happen if installed correctly it should not wobble but check these items anyways 95% of the time it will be return and get a new one.

I want to clean the squirl cage fan on my Carrier handler. It's 12 years old and never really been cleaned. What is the best cleaning procedure to maximize its efficiency.


The best way to really clean the squirrel cage is to remove the entire indoor blower motor housing assembly out of the furnace then remove the squirrel cage from the motor shaft and pressure wash the squirrel cage. Make sure you don't use to much water pressure as you might knock off any balancing weights that may be attached to the one or more of the vanes. Make sure the cage is completely dry before you re-install it back on the motor shaft.

Fan has a humming noise and locking up


a.if there were a dead bird inside, you'd know it from the smell! if the outside vent has the proper hood on it, it's doubtful a bird could get into it. possibly a roof-rat, but still- the smell!
b. have you 'de-greased' the filter lately? clogged filter can cause airflow problems, as well as allowing fan blades to become greased up and unbalanced, which could cause a noisy condition. if you can- remove the filter unit and check the fan blades for crud. use a gentle application of windex, rubbing alcohol, or some other gentle solvent to clean the blades. the leading edges usually pick up the most crud. you should be able to see this! carefully, using q-tips, or a small brush, clean off the crud! the fan's probably out of balance. WD40 works pretty well, too. also lubricates the shaft bushing that the blades are attached to. make sure the fan is turned off! duh!! good luck! also- soak the filter in hot water and a good de-greaser for a while, 'til you can see light through it. it's probably aluminum mesh- so use very hot water and a goodly amount of 'grease cutting' dish detergent. rinse well.
once again- good luck! the filter is probably held in place by clips. once removed, you will probably need a flashlight to work on the fan blades. put paper towels, or newspaper down to catch drips!

I bought an older unit Viking Ultra line range hood. I'm cleaning it and wonder how I should go about cleaning the blades of the squirrel cage fans. Thanks. Karen


I took the motor out of the range hood. There is a set screw holding the squirrel cage fan in place which I unscrewed enough to slide the fan part off. I then boiled the part in a deep pan with lots of dish soap. I then brushed away the remaining debris. Avoid using dishwasher detergent which is effective but seems to erode the aluminum.

use a good 3 in 1 oil. Don't use WD-40 it will only clean it then dry out the bearing. the problem will be worse than when you started.
