Unplug the unit from the wall for safety. Remove the two screws in the upper hand grip recess (upper back of the unit). The two screws must be completely removed (not just loose and setting in the holes). Once the two screws are out, the back half of the fan cover can be slid downward (some amount of force is needed to unsnap the two halves from each other but be careful since the parts are all plastic and can possibly snap). Once the back is unsnapped from the front, you can lift the back half away from the front half and the inside parts are now accessible. I have found on my fan that it is the top fan shaft / bushing that is causing the squeaking noise that so many have complained about. I have found that periodically lubricating the top shaft/bushing will make the fan sound like new again - for a while. Every 2 - 3 weeks I need to clean (wipe off old lube) and re-apply fresh lube).

All you have to do is where you press the power on /off there is small hole just flipp it using small screw driver and that is where you can find to screws that will allow you to remove the fan.

thank you for using fixya. The blade cage has locks and screws that you can remove from the back. once the cage has been removed, you can remove the blade attached to the motor using a vacuum cleaner or you can remove the blades by undoing the screw on the center detaching it from the motor.

I have this fan & have removed those screws. Look directly above the switch on the back of the fan, let your eye travel up to the extreme outside edge. Such as where you'd find 12 o'clock on a timepiece. The screws are very small. About the size of the head of a finishing nail.
Follow the edge around to 2 o'clock, 4 o'clock, and so on. Don't blink.
I used a very small philips head screwdriver, the same size as for doing watch or eyeglass repair. Remember to have a secure place to put the screws, such as a pill bottle, or lid.
And the screws can be difficult to remove, apply a lot of force downward on the screwdriver and turn s-l-o-w-l-y. Don't strip the head of the screw.
Good luck, Liz/Bizzie Lizzie Atlanta

When I called Seville Support I was told that you can NOT open fan to clean and may not get it together if attempted (glad I stopped when I did!).
You need to use air pressure. After using much of a can of compressed air such as you would use on a keyboard and not getting too far, I broke out my seldom used air compressor which kicked out enough dust bunnies as to block out the sun. Hint: be sure to use outdoors. I'm happy to report both units working as good as new.
Don't have an air compressor? Ask your neighbor, he'll need the correct nozzle to 'blow air' (it comes in handy for many tasks).
