You can reach the fan wheel by using a can of compressed air normally used to clean your compute keyboard. Make sure you hold a vacuum wand close to the heater when doing this to collect the debris. Using a small coffee stir straw, lubricate the end of the fan motor shaft with light motor oil. This will keep the motor alive for a bit longer.

This heater has a safety valve on the power on/main gas valve button: after the burner is lit you must keep the button pressed for about 10 seconds to allow a sensor to heat up and trigger the thermostat to keep the valve open. This safety has been implemented that if in case the flame dies out the gas doesn't keeps escaping, putting you and your house in danger.
If after 10 seconds when you take your finger off the button the flame dies out it means that the safety thermostat has failed and it will have to be replaced. Because it's a gas run device i strongly suggest you call a professional for that - the repair will cost you roughly $200.

If you're saying the burners turn OFF after 1/2 hour, but the pilot light stays lit ... I'd have to assume that the automatic thermostat control on the heater, turned the burners OFF, because the temperature you had it set on had been reached. The real question (at least for me) is are you allowing enough time for the temperature to drop and the heater to turn back ON automatically?
