How do I remove the grill to get to the fan blades to clean them?


Hi,
There's usually a screw or a clip which locks the two halves of the grill together. You need to remove the screw or undo the clip. Then you should find that one half of the grill cage just lifts out of its locating lugs. Once you've got the cage open you have access to the fan impellor. This should be removable. Sometimes by undoing the locking screw or just by pulling it off. You can now get to all parts of the fan assembly to clean it. Here are some links to useful sites:

How to clean fan blades on sunbeam humidifier model 1118


I picked up a Sunbeam Humidifier model 1118 for $7 (which was $7 too much) second hand. It wasn't until I got home that I noticed it was filthy-dirty inside...(dirtier than shown in the photos) the reservoir, the bottom tray, AND the fan chamber all needed major cleaning.

A quick Google search told me that the grill is "not removable", and the unit is "not user serviceable". Companies do this/say this for two reasons:

a) They want you to throw it away and buy a new one, landfills and plastic filling our oceans be darned
b) They want to protect themselves from lawsuits, should someone injure themselves servicing their product (or in this instance, cutting their fingers off on the fan blade).

Imagine if all of that design know-how was put into making the product serviceable, cleanable, and long-lasting, rather than ensuring it can't be opened or repaired by the average joe.

Me, I've opened and repaired enough gadgets to think differently.

You CAN remove the grille.
Carefully insert a series of flat-head screwdrivers between the grill and the body a few inches apart, wedging the grill edge away from the body.
There are slits in the body (see photos) that will allow you to get under the grill edge and pry it right out when enough of it has been detached from the anchoring groove.
But be gentle while you're doing it.
The Grille is plastic and flexible; it will bend, but if you use too much force you will damage either the grill or the body.

The photos also show how the grill is anchored to the body - via a groove in the grille edge.

You can put the grille back after cleaning the blades and fan chamber much the same way; pressing down, and if required: prying the side of the grill inwards with a flat head screwdriver.
Mine snapped right back into place with a bit of downward pressure.

I NEED INSTRUCTIONS TO TAKE APART FOR CLEANING


I have a similar model to this one. It's a little tricky. Everything snaps or twists together. Press a little on the front and back of the fan grills and twist lefty loosy to open. The blades are an easy detachment, just pull them out easily, and take off the back grill. The back grill may have two screws connecting it to the main case of the fan, but mine didn't.

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 clean the fan on a toshiba satellite


If you do not want to tear the system down, just power the laptop down, remove the battery, push the power button for 10 seconds to bleed off the power . Now go and get some compressed air used to clean electronics,you can get it in cans at an office supply company. Using short bursts, blow air in the laptops ventilation grills, using short bursts will keep condensation from blowing out and onto the laptop and also keeps the fan from free spinning and damaging itself. Blow air in all the grills several times over, that mosts the dust and hair back and forth and works it out of the grills, fins and fan blades.

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.

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...
