You can turn the unit around backwards and find three integrated clips holding the front cover on.I use a flathead screwdriver to disengage the clips and the front cover just slips out.
I use a vacuum and windes on thr blade surface.
saw your question and thought I'd chime in.
Good Luck!

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: I have a Vornado floor

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.

Need to take appart vornado to clean


It depends on what type of unit you have. There are grill clips on the back of the unit that you will need to depress. Some models have screws that need to be removed in order to remove the grill. If assistance is needed please call us at 1-800-234-0604.

Thank you,

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.

How to remove the grill to clean the Vornado fan?


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!

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
