Can I remove the front panel in order to clean the fan itself?

Hi, and yes you can remove the front cover to clean the dirty blades. In fact, I just cleaned mine 2 days ago, it was very dirty! I was shocked. You should have 3 to 4 small screws around the guard that come out. Be careful not to put to much pressure on the blades as they should be aluminum and will bend and be out of balance. Use a soft rag and you can use a cleaner such as 409, if you have it or even Windex will do the job. Do not spray anything directly on the motor, try and use a soft brush to clean it off. An old tooth brush works great for getting in there, so yes go for it.Please be kind when rating me as I know you will. If you need any help for anything, just contact me by my user name below in the comment section for help.

Black print is very faint

If the print is faint, streaky in a vertical fashion up and down the page, the problem lies with the developer blades in the imaging unit. To fix this, you will need to clean the blades or buy a new imaging unit. The imaging unit cost $100+ and the problem will be fixed until the blades get dirty again. Or you can learn how to clean the blades yourself. I have an instruction post and it can be found by clicking on the following link
Hope this helps.

Ice maker hanges up ice forms on blades

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.

Usually when ice (teardrops) form on the sweep blades it can be caused by a couple of things.

1. A dirty freezer door seal
2. A torn freezer door seal
3. Separation in the freezer door.
4, Calcium build up on the sweep blades.

Give the door seal a serious look for dirt and tears.

If the door seal looks ok and is clean then...

Wash the icemaker sweep blades with a mixture of vinegar and water. Give the freezer door some attention with that same mixture. Oils from hands or food can prevent a good seal on the freezer door. Just make sure you clean the icemaker sweep blades FIrst...

Do not use a new scotch brite pad on the sweep blades. USE an OLD one.... scratches on sweep baldes invite condensation when the door is opened.

Make sure to toss the next few cycles of ice cubes.

Doing the above should stop the ice build up on the sweep blades unless you have folks or visitors in the home that love holding the freezer door open for longer than normal.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Printing is not uniform across the page. It is heavier at each end

This is a very common problem with Samsung CLX-3160 and CLP-300 printers. The real problem is that the developer blades get dirty with the toner. Buying a new imaging unit will only fix the problem for a short period of time then it starts to get buildup on the developer blades.

If your printer looks like this:

Then you need to clean the developer blades. In the image above it is the black blade that need to be cleaned. If there are streaking on any other color, then also needs to be cleaned.

To clean the developer blades, look to this link. It describes how to clean them. It only takes a few minutes to do once you get the developers out of the unit. Just be careful when you clean the edge of the blades. You need to make sure that the residue is completely removed from the edge. Also be sure that when you reinstall the blade that the little foam does not get trapped below the blade. Otherwise when you print the side where the blade is not properly installed will have too much color.

If you are afraid of messing your printer up, then you need to buy a new imaging unit. They go around $100.

I have a Model #3510 Lasko Cyclone Fan and the blades are dirty

Steam works great, otherwise you can use a degreaser and hose it off. Make sure you let it dry completey and then some before plugging back in.

The air conditioner is blowing very cold air

there are a couple of possibilities here. 1) lack of air flow, due to dirty filter, dirty fan blades/vanes, dirty coil, slow blower motor. 2) lack of refrigerant due to leak or starving metering device. The first one you can deal with: statrt by checking the filter; clean it if dirty. Is the air coming out slower than usual? If so the coil, (the piece that gets cold) fan is dirty; clean them. If it is low refrigerant you will need a professional to repair it or buy a new one. Hope this helps

I used a can of compressed air to clean my fan blades and this did the job. I bought a 6-pack of 3M Dust Remover at Sams Club to save money. Hope this helps.
