when you take all the screws out slide the back down. there is a screw at the bottom holding it from slideing the 9th screw so to speak. you have to take out the u shaped pin on the rod once that u shaped pin is out thats where you will find all the screws to the bracket holding the moter in place take all those out too. it seems like alot but it is really not.

SOURCE: how to open tower fan to clean it

Use compressed air to blow the dust etc. out of the unit.  You can purchase a  can of compressed air from Home Depot or Lowes, or Google "compressed air in a can."  Just make sure you clean the unit outside to keep the dust etc. out of your home.

SOURCE: cleaning inside the fan

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).

How to take apart a tower computer


<ol> <li> <p>Unplug everything. Unplug all of the wires, computer cables and power plugs from the outside of the tower. After this, it's a good idea to pick up the tower and put it on a clean flat workspace, on its side.Open the case. Discharge any static electricity. If you are worried you may have a lot of static electricity, you can use an ESD strap to discharge it. Remove the sides of the tower by unscrewing the screws in the back of the case that hold them on. This is usually two screws on either side, but may be more. On the side where the computer parts are removed, the side may be screwed in with thumbscrews. Lay the computer down so that all of the components are exposed.Remove the cards. The cards usually consist of, the sound card, video card, network card and maybe a few others. Some of these devices are now integrated on the motherboard, so you may have few or no cards at all. You can remove the cards by unscrewing them from the back of the computer. They usually only have one Phillips screw holding them in. Remove the card by pulling it slowly and carefully; you will have to apply some force though.Take out the drives. The drives are in bays in the front of the tower and are screwed into the framework of the tower or in removable bays. You will need to unscrew several screws from this side of the tower and you will need to flip the computer over and unscrew the drives from the other side as well. Unplug all of the power cables and computer connections from the back of the drives. Pull the hard drives out of the back work area. Floppy and optical drives can now be pushed out the front. Some computer cases, such as certain Dells, have a system for the optical drives to come right out by pushing in releases on the sides of the drive and no unscrewing is required.Disconnect the brains of the computer. Remove the memory by unlocking the white end clips and pulling up on the memory carefully and unsnapping it from the connection. Remove the CPU fan by unsnapping it from its connection to the motherboard. Unlock the CPU holder by unlatching the small metal clip. Lift up and remove the CPU.Remove the power supply. Never open the inside of the power supply, as it may cause severe injury. Simply unplug the power supply from the motherboard. This is usually connected by a long white rectangle and requires a clip to be pinched to let it loose. Make sure the power supply is not connected to anything else inside. All that's left is to unscrew four screws on the back of the case that hold the power supply in place. Lift out the power supply.Detach the motherboard. The motherboard should be screwed in with between 6 and 9 screws, simply unscrew them and lift the motherboard out at a good angle so that it fits out the side of the computer. The motherboard may have to be pulled out of the back of the case with some pressure, where the connections for the computer cables are. You should now have an empty tower.<br /></li></ol>

How do I clean my clean living tower fan?


Usually there would be a few screws in the base that need to be taken out and the outer case pulls out. This will expose the fan and filters inside. Hopefully that will allow you to clean the inside. Would not spray any cleaning agents. Just a light vacuum and wipe with clean moist cloth.

How do i clean my Duracraft Tower Fan Kaz Inc DY012


I just figured out how to take off the back of the DY-012. You know about the 2 screws on the top, in the 'handle' area. But there is a third screw on the bottom. It is hidden by a small button-sized piece of plastic used to cover the hole the screw is in. This piece of plastic has a pin-hole that you can stick a pin (haha) or a paper clip in, to pop it out. After the 3 screws are out, you pull the back away from the front starting from the bottom, and when you have loosened both sides of the back, you pull down to remove it from the top. You should also see a small **** at the top. Stick a very thin screwdriver or knife in it to help unclip the back from the top. Once you have access to the inside, you just have to figure out the order in which to remove screws to have access to the harder-to-get-to screws. I must say, the plastic cleans VERY easily! My fan was covered with nicotine which accumulated extra dust and dirt, and it now looks brand new!
