How can I remove the front cover?

I'm trying to clean the vents cause they definitely need it, but it has been pretty tough. I've been trying to remove the front cover so i could clean the louvers and the area behind it better, but it seems there is no way to remove the front cover on this model. Am I missing something or can you not remove the front cover? If not is their an easier way to clean the vents?

    That is a very poor design, they should all come out and be dishwasher safe. They get so dirty.

    This is helpful because I'll stop trying to get the vents off. Glad I haven't broke anything. Big pain to clean those vents and the parts behind them.

How to I clean the blower vents on my fas257s2a window ac?

That unit appears to be pretty old. No manuals. I believe the outside cover will come off by prying around the edge and pulling towards you. Some have a foam type filter behind the grill that would need to be cleaned out as well

I am trying to replace the bobbin winder on my 660 Janome jem gold but can't open the front cover. Can you help me?

There is a screw that is pretty hard to get to. I suggest using a Philips screwdriver that is magnetized. When you remove the large wheel on the right side of the cover, look inside and where you removed the wheel from. There is one last screw there which has to be removed.
Best wishes!

At first check the fan went for any ribbon like dust accumulation. If this is the case open covers and clean fan. Remove heatsink and clean everything, apply new thermal compound/thermal pad and put back everything as before.remember to tighten the screws in chris- cross direction at maximum you can, but not break or harm any other components. see if any difference happen.
Hope this helps

May we know for how long have you been using it?
This is the most probable cause. The vents are blocked with of dust. Usually this happens with several years of usage.
Usually there is a removable cover on the bottom side of laptops. Remove the screws and remove this cover at bottom. you will see a small fan like apparatus (it IS a fan but the blades are different). There will be copper tubes coming from the CPU etc to this fan. You have to remove the screws holding the fan and the copper tubes. Then remove the fan assembly with the tubes. Now clean the vent from the inside.
This will solve your problem.

When the CPU overheats then it will shutdown (i.e. thermal overload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down.If this is the problem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan. If the fan and heat sink is clogged withdust the remove the dust and make sure the vents are clear and dust free. Use acan of compressed air to do this.

How to remove front cover for cleaning

I don't know too much about your particular make / model but most window units have a 1 piece front cover which is usually held on to the main cabinet with 1 or 2 screws at the sides and 1 or 2 behind the filter panel. You will need to remove the front panel to remove the vents as they are usually fitted from behind the panel.

Are the white lines in one color or all colors? If it is just one color you should try cleaning the laser window. Open the front cover and in the cover there should be a cleaning wand. Remove the waste cartridge and use the cleaning wand to clean the laser windows located behind the waste cartridge.

My Kenmore 70 series is heating up but NOT drying. I checked the vents. They are clear. The exhaust from the back of the dryer seems to be pretty weak.

Good day,
The lint filter is supposed to do the job, but........
1. Remove lint filter.
2. remove 2 screws under lint filter, then pry up both front ends of the front of the top lid.
Lift lid up and prop up but do not go completely vertical.
3. Remove back cover of the machine.
4. Remove all the screws holding the vent shute on the left side.
5. Lift this shute out and up as far as possible, watching out for the wires.
6. Inspect the blower wheel and it's housing with a light. Should be filled with a buidup of lint.
7. Clean out and reassemble.

How to clean Zojirushi NS-MYC 18 rice cooker

I just took my lid apart on my rice cooker. My suggestion for dealing with the dirty stainless steel cover under the vent hole is to not look at it! The lid is not designed to come apart. I had to pry the top cover off of the lid. Once again just don't look in the vent hole and everything will be fine. (sorry about the bold letters my bold got stuck.) Have fun with the yuck in the vent hole.
