This thermal switch may be of the type where it is saving power by turning off motor when air is sufficiently cooled. You obviously want the air cooler, so you can place a wire across the two terminals of that switch to defeat the power save. If the switch is to prevent motor over-heating, however, then you cannot jumper that switch. Do this test: open back to locate switch. if switch is located directly on motor housing, then that switch is cannot be jumpered out. if switch is located in air stream, then it may be possible to jumper it out. Try the jumper and observe for many operations of fan useage to ensure jumper is safe. Ensure no bare wires or electric terminals exposed when done.

The grill is in two halves with the back half attached to the motor. The front with the round patton insignia removes easily by applying leverage with a screwdriver. There are eight spots (at least on mine) where it clips. Be sure to remove any disposable plastic fastener holding the two halves together. Its pretty easy.
