    You can also unscrew the motor from the housing. Then protect it with plastic and hose down the rear housing. Let dry or blow dry with shop vac before reassembly.

Around the wall/body of the sides fan near the rear grill are embossed arrows pointing to screws (first unscrew all-depending on the fan model, there may be 3 or 4 screws (or, as suggested, with the fan's back towards you, use a flashlight to locate the screws).. next, with the fan facing you, grip the edge of the front piece (over the clips) with your finger and gently lift out and towards you. Usually the bottom 2 will also come off easily. DO NOT remove the screws on the posts. You can unscrew the nut on the blade to wash the blade and the front piece. the rear piece doesn't come off. Wipe the rear piece patiently with a moist cloth. Make sure all are dry. Leave alone the motor, blow air into screw holes, else the motor shaft, screws and fan shaft will rust. (paraphrased from official user manual). Remember the orient the notch of the blade to the motor shaft flat edge, and the fan nut unscrews the other way (clockwise).

    After removing the front grill as detailed by Kyle, you can clean the fan thoroughly by unscrewing the motor from the rear housing. Then protect it with a plastic baggie and hose down the rear housing. Let dry or blow dry with shop vac before reassembly.

You cannot with the clips... its impossible.. wound up breaking the clips... and STILL cannot get grill off. Don't ever by a Vornado if you cannot clean it!

SOURCE: need to remove gril to clean blade and grill

You can remove it by pressing the clips. I used a flat screwdriver as there was no way my thumb would fit in there. But it worked like a champ with the screwdriver. I pressed two clips and it popped and then I could simply lift the grill away from the fan blades.

SOURCE: 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...

I have a Vornado floor f an, the blades iof which are coated with heavy dust. How do I remove the front protective screen to clean the blades.


On the model I have, the front grill just pulls off from the front; there are some tabs that you might need to release by pushing with a small screwdriver from the rear. After cleaning, just align the tabs and push it back in until they click back in and latch.

Fan is making squeeling noise when running.


After reading dozens of similar problems on here about the Vornado fans squealing (and rattling) it seems they are in need of some 3-in-1 oil for the bearings and any moving parts in and around the motor area.
Also good to keep the fan clean by wiping down and removing front grill and the fan blade...A high pressure duster or spray air canister for the motor body etc. should get out any dust inside the unit.
good luck!

How do I open to clean 600 series vornado floor fan


There are three clips the hold the grill to the cowl.
Look along the back, outer edge of the fan.
One clip at 11 o'clock, one at 2 o'clock and one at 6 o'clock.
Use a flat blade screw driver to push the 11 and 2 positions down (do 11 then do 2) and the grill should come off. The blade just pulls off. It only goes on one way (due the the "D" shaped shaft).

Need to clean..............how do I get it apart to clean model 280SS Have had this model for quite sometime and it deperately needs a cleaning. THNAK YOU!


There are four clips the hold the grill to the cowl.
Look along the outer edge, on the back.
One clip at 11 o'clock, one at 2 o'clock, one at 4 o'clock, and one at 8 o'clock.
Use a flat blade screw driver to push the 11 and 2 positions down (do 11 then do 2) and the grill shuold come off. The clips are just tabs molded into the grill, don't push too agressively, or the tab will break, and the grill will not latch on as well. Check the Vornado website for more information. They used to have a video about cleaning.

Use mild soap and water the clean the blades after removal.

I have an older Vornado 280B (it looks just like the current 730 series with the small stand). I've been able to remove the front grill & clean it and the blades, but now I'd like to remove the rear...


It's similar to the 600 and 700 series based on a picture of those compared to the 280b model I have. http://www.vornado.com/product-support/support/faq.aspx
