There are 4 small screws in the rim between the ribs accessible from the back. Remove the screws and the cover will come off.

SOURCE: how to clean blades and/or how to remove fan cover for cleaning

I am certainly not an expert on this field; yet i have done this my self and this is what i did:

MOst fans have clips.
check where the from and back pieces attach. there should be several clips there remove them and voila.

if not there possibly check the centre pice of fan this may have a screw that holds front and back pieces together as well.

Pllease note you will also have to remove the legs from the side of fan as well. if the pic is the same one you have
Hope this helps

SOURCE: Removing fan blades

Joey Temal is right. After removing any small metal retaining clips (which are obvious and easily removed), you have to pull down ridiculously hard to get the fan blade off. Alternate short jerky pulls with steady downward traction.

I'm getting a squeaking noise from my Windchaser WCUFLTI fan when it stands upright. If I lean it against the wall, the noise stops. I'm in the process of dismantling it, but can't get the back cover off....


Not sure on the squeaking. Mines squeak to on the low and medium speed, but not on high speed. As for the cover, remove the three 'visible' screws. There are two screws in the handle, but you have to remove the plugs that are hidding the screws. Use a thin flat blade screw driver to pry the plugs. Then, the screws will be visible for removal.

Once the all the screws are off from the back cover, using a flat screw driver depress the tab above the handle; then, gently '****' downwardly (assuming the fan is standing) to remove the back cover.

Fan motor does not turn unless the blades are turned by hand, the capacitor has been tested ok


These types of fans need to be oiled once every year. Remove the cover and access the fan motor. you should see two small yellow covers at each end of the fan motor. Pull these small covers off and oil the ends of the motor. The small covers are caps for oil tubes that feed the fan bearings.

HV-180 fanFan has dust on enclosed blades and on cover. Would like to clean. How?


The blade cage has locks and screws that you can remove from the back. once the cage has been removed, you can remove the blade attached to the motor using a vacuum cleaner or you can remove the blades by undoing the screw on the center detaching it from the motor.

Exhaust fan has stopped working Need to troubleshoot


Even though this is a pain, I need to suggest that you perform the following:
Remove the microwave from the mounting position as follows:
1. Place a cardboard box of sufficient height to have the microwave rest on it with no more than about a 4-inch drop. Cover the box with a bath towel.
2. Using a power screwdriver, remove the 2 mounting screws located in the overhead cabinet base. (microwave front will tilt down onto the box)
3. Firmly lift on the rear of the microwave to unhook it from the wall mount bracket.
4. Once removed, pull some slack on the power cord.
5. Slide the box and microwave forward (toward you)....enough to see the fan blades
6. Place a small cup of water in the microwave and press quick start (30 seconds)
7 Look at the fan blades. If NO movement, open door. Hand rotate blades a full turn to ensure free movement.
8. Restart microwave. (fan blades move - Yes/no)
If No, check power cable that supplies internal power to fan. Be sure it is connectied.
If yes - but only a slight movement - it is clogged with grease...remove it and spray with lots of Ammonia to clean fan elements. Shake excess moisture off. Retest.(fan blades move - Yes/no).
If yes, reverse removal procedure and enjoy....
If no, Replace fan assembly

Why does my Jenn Air convection oven make such a LOUD clattery/ticking noise whenever I use it? I think it must be the fan...can you help?


If you can get at the fan blades without taking anything apart, try to turn the fan blade by using a small screwdriver or even a small wooden skewer. Listen to see if the blades are making contact with either fan cover or the back of the oven or the edges of the convection opening.

Once you determine which blade(s) are making contact, use a sharpie marker to mark those blades you need to correct. That way if the blades are hitting the fan cover, you'll know which ones need to be bent back into shape once the cover is removed.

With the oven turned off, you should be able to remove the circulating fan cover and correctly bend the fan blades back into shape and stop the noise.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

How do I get my hampton bay antigua fan down from the ceiling


first you will need a ladder and a screwdriver/phillips a couple wire nuts or electrical tape.at the "top" of the fan you will see a bowl shaped cover it will have usually no more than two screws in it..loosen or remove those screws to access the fan hanger inside.once you get that far inside you will see several wires .undo each wire seperatly and cover with a wire nut or electrical tape(please make sure your power is off to that circuit) once you have unhooked all the wires from the fan and secured them out of the way. lift the fan out of the hanger itself (sometimes it is easier to remove each blade from the motor housing before removing the fan from its hanger ) those screws can be found at the base of each blade on the motor housing..If you are moving or adding a cieling light be sure to remove both parts of the fan hanger..the second part will still be attached to the cieling..usually two screws holding it into place..if just replaacing the fan,,you can sometimes leave the second part there and hang the new fan with it..

Removing ceiling fan blades


Wait? Why would you want to remove the blade? Are they broken? Is the fan unbalanced? Try cleaning the blade. If the fan still wobbles, try tightening the screws. If the fan still wobbles, Unscrew the blade and unconnect the blade from blade iron. Buy the new blade iron. If the blade is broken, Also buy the new blade.

Remove coil on back of refrigerator very gently and support the coil against a kitchen chair or counter. On the back of the refrigerator there is an access panel. Remove 4 screws holding the cover. Remove the bottom of the freezer compartment by removing screws and pulling bottom straight out. Remove Styrofoam panel from freezer by cutting tape along side edge. Once the Styrofoam panel is removed you will see fan blades. O n the front of the fan blade there is a spring. Pull the spring off by pulling straight forward with pliers or fingers. Remove the 3 screws holding the fan motor to the refrigerator in the rear access panel. The Motor should now be free. Unplug the plug from the connector by lock latch and pulling straight up. Now you must free the fan blade from the fan motor. Grasp the fan motor and pull straight out. This fan blade is really hard to get off. Try separating the two halves of the blade, where you removed the spring, with a screw driver. The motor is available from Repairclinic.com. Good luck.
