There are 4 small screws in the rim between the ribs accessible from the back. Remove the screws and the cover will come off.

I have had the same problem. I own a couple and they are not worth the hassle of disassembling. (this being said some fans have removable grills but if your's does not)...While the fan is on or off (low setting) spray a cleaner such as Windex. I've found spraying while on is better. Then stick a long Q-tip about 6" through the grill and onto the blade. As the blade spins on the tip of the swab it will collect the bunnies. Its plastic blade will do no harm and the q-tip will not harm the motor. Turn off blade and the grill when finished and you will just need a few swabs around the grill as the Windex has been spraying out from the fan.

My Holmes Blizzard Fan is the kind on a pedestal, but if you lay the fan face down on a table and look around the edges you will see little holes where there are screws that are not easily seen. To remove the screws you will need a long narrow Phillips head screw driver.

Fan gets power but blade is not spining

Best solution, replace fan. Cheap solution, remove fan, clean it real good and apply a few drops of WD-40 or Silicone to the bearings under the paper cover on the hub. Spin it a few times to move the lubricant into the bearings and reinstall it. If it still won't spin, replace it.

How discharge cleaning blade

Theres a lot of disassembly involved for that. You open the front door....unplug & remove the toner hopper open the right door & remove a metal cover...then take out the developer unit. Thedn back to the front to remove a cooling fan & then screws to take out the drum process unit to access the cleaning assembly and clkeaning blade. If you are not a copier technician....I would not attempt it and call one to get the job done correctly. I assume you must have streaks or lines on the copies which prompted your question.

How do I take the front cover off so that I can clean the blades etc of dust?

You can blow the whole fan clean with compressed air or a compressor. It does not require removing the cover. The cover comes off with a twist and a pull, but does not stay on well afterwards, so I don't recommend removal. Farmerbear at

How to clean blades and/or how to remove fan cover for cleaning

I am certainly not an expert on this field; yet i have done this my self and this is what i did:

MOst fans have clips.
check where the from and back pieces attach. there should be several clips there remove them and voila.

if not there possibly check the centre pice of fan this may have a screw that holds front and back pieces together as well.

Pllease note you will also have to remove the legs from the side of fan as well. if the pic is the same one you have
Hope this helps

Lasko 3520 20-Inch Cyclone fan - disassemble fan for cleaning?

How do I clean my Cyclone or Air Companion™?
Lay the fan face up on a flat surface. The front grill should be facing you. Remove the screws from the rear grill. Place a flat-head screwdriver into the gap between the front and rear grills. Pull the front grill towards you, exposing the fan blade. Do not remove the knobs on either side. Then, wipe the blade with a soft, damp cloth. Use a mild detergent if necessary. Be sure not to touch the motor. Click here to download product instruction sheet.

not sure of the lasko brand but some fans have a cap over the center of the blades that must be unscrewed to remove the blades.( the motor shaft has threads on the end of it ).
some older models actually have the blades that unscrew opposite of turning direction, and you have to find a way to grip the motor shaft and unscrew the blades........
hope this helps.............jay

Removable grilles for easy cleaning?

We just figured this out ourselves. There are four (4) screws on the back of each fan that when undone it releases the grill for cleaning. But the fun part is getting the screws back in to the little holes. But all in all we got it clean...

How To Clean

On the back of the fan there are 6 recessed phillips head screws around the circumfrence of the fan. You must use a longer screwdriver as the screws are set in a couple of inches.

The two screws on the bottom are a little harder to see.

There are also two clips on the sides front cover. Squeeze on the sides gently to release these.

Need to replace the drum cleaning brush how do I get it out????

The drum cleaning blade removal is pretty straight forward.
1. Remove the charge unit above the drum.
2. Remove the cover that sits above the cleaning blade.
3. Release the pressure spring at front of drum unit.
4. Remove 1 screw (front side of blade at top) holding blade in place.

I noticed that you had also had a E3-40 code previously. If toner is dropping on to your copies, the toner support blade will also have to be replaced.
