You will need a phillips screwdriver (preferably 2 different sizes - some of the screws are tiny), q-tips and a can of wd-40.
On the back of the brookstone (the darker gray side) you will find 4 screws inside of 4 channels. Take these out.
Put the fan on its head. pry off the 5 rubber bases and set aside carefully so as they won't lose their stickiness. You will see 5 screws beneath these. Remove them and then remove the bottom plate. Now remove the 2 screws and washers, noting that the rounded side of the washer was facing you. Now pivot the base so that the 4 holes on the outer part of the base line up with the 4 screwsheads that are screwed into the tower. Take these out.
The 2 gray tower pieces should now separate easily. set the fan on a newspaper and blow away as much of the surface dust as your can. Now use your wd-40 (with a straw nozzle attached) and spray into the motor area where the actual fan turns. Also spray, from the top down, along the metal rod that connects the fan to the motor.
Now use the q tips, dipped into warm water, to clean the dust from the fan "blades" and to clean any other nooks and crannies you can see.
Lube the motor up one more time, put the machine back together and leave to dry out overnight.
Will work like a charm afterwards.
