Ok here is what I found....there should be screws on the outside rim where the two fan grates meet....then dust the innerds with a leaf blower or a rag, then use brake cleaner spray to soften the greasy dirt that formed, and again a rag to wipe away any residue....hope this works, it did for me

SOURCE: cleaned a fan, now it's broken!!!

Is this the speed switch itself? These multi-speed fans have 4 or 5 wires which come from the motor which go into the speed select switch. The wiring may have the ends stripped, and this stripped end just pushes into the hole on the switch, and a little metal piece grips that stripped end.

Anyway, one possibility is to contact the manufacturer- look on their website or give them a call, see if a tech can give that info. Another poss. is to locate an identical fan and note the wiring locations on it. You can also experiment trial and error, though caution needs to be exercised here.

How do clean the lakewood mini tower fan model MTF 15

Here is what one said:
"To clean it, you will need a small paint brush, screw driver either flat or crossed, then disassemble it. Loosen the screw and just be observant what you put apart. Then clean it. Good"

You may want to take it to a gas station and REALLY clean it out? OR a aerosol canned "AIR DUSTER" will be very useful too!

How to clean lakewood 2210 fan


Hi, if you look inside the grill from the back side, you will see there are small snaps inside near the edge of the cover. The snaps go around the entire cover and are about 3-4" apart.
I used a flat tip screwdriver to get push the tab up from the back and the inside of the grill. When you push up the tab a bit, then slide a small flat tip screwdriver on the outside lip of the front grill. You will have to do this all the way around until the cover snaps off. Putting it back on is a breeze because it just snaps together.
***AS ALWAYS SAFETY FIRST !! NEVER WORK ON ANY APPLIANCE When it is plugged in !! ***
Hope this helps.... =) good luck

How do i take apart and clean my 2517 lasko t.f.


I took mine outside and hosed it down real good and then let it air dry for a day or 2. worked great! it was filthy!!! and that dang screw made it impossible for me to fully take it apart to clean it, so I decided it was either the hose or throw it away. mine was incredibly dusty and i was able to use a hose with a power nose and spray it really good. we'll see how long it works :)

It has six phillips-head screws around the perimeter. Loosen all six screws and the halves separate. Be careful loosening the screw that holds the motor in place - I ended up stripping the head. If you can use a vice grip to get it started, that may help.
