Hi, and yes you can remove the front cover to clean the dirty blades. In fact, I just cleaned mine 2 days ago, it was very dirty! I was shocked. You should have 3 to 4 small screws around the guard that come out. Be careful not to put to much pressure on the blades as they should be aluminum and will bend and be out of balance. Use a soft rag and you can use a cleaner such as 409, if you have it or even Windex will do the job. Do not spray anything directly on the motor, try and use a soft brush to clean it off. An old tooth brush works great for getting in there, so yes go for it.Please be kind when rating me as I know you will. If you need any help for anything, just contact me by my user name below in the comment section for help.
Sincerely,

How do I take apart to clean fan part real black


Hi Sherin,
You have to remove the screw or undo the clip which locks the front half of the fan cage to the back half. Then you can split the cage open, exposing the fan. You should be able to remove the fan impellor itself either by just pulling it off or by undoing a screw. Once cleaned, reverse the order to reassemble.

I am 99% sure I have a bad fan. TV was turning off (probably overheating). We replaced the lamp (for the fourth time), but the fan continues loudly when the set is turned on. Question-- Can I replace...



Tools/Supplies:

• Phillips screwdriver (magnetic tip)
• 1/4" nut driver
• 1/4" wrench, small adjustable wrench, or stubby Phillips (to access screw in tight spot)
• Canned air with extender tube, a few cans
• Optical-quality microfiber cloth
• Clean, lint-free cloth
• Small brush

Precautions:

• Do not use any cleaner that contains ammonia. A clean lint-free cloth dampened with water was adequate for me.
• To prevent over spray, do not spray any cleaner directly on to any TV part. Spray on to rag only. (I only used a dampened rag to clean plastic and metal surfaces; no electronics or optical surfaces.)
• Use only an optical quality microfiber cloth and/or canned air to clean the light engine lens, the mirror and the inside surfaces of the front screen.
• Exercise caution using canned air. Do not tilt the can and allow any liquid propellant to escape. I had a few full cans available, and swapped to a new can often.
• Keep screws removed from each panel in a different cup. Most are different sizes.
• When disconnecting wiring connectors, note color codes for connector orientation when reconnecting. Most connectors only install in one orientation, but it's not clearly obvious.
• If contacting any circuit boards/wiring connectors, make sure to touch the metal frame first to discharge any static charge.

Disassembly Instructions:

1. Insure TV is powered off and allowed to cool at least 2 hours (overnight if possible).

2. Open and remove the Lamp Unit door on left side of TV. Using a Phillips screwdriver, loosen the 2 screws on the lamp unit and carefully remove the lamp unit.
Clean lamp unit, using microfiber cloth on the lens and set aside for reinstallation.

3. With the lamp unit removed, you can see the light engine's color wheel through the small hole. I covered this hole with tape to prevent any dust from entering during my cleaning.

4. Remove the lower rear cover (2 screws on each end and 9 along the back panel).

5. Remove the cover from the Input/Output jacks by removing the 7 silver screws securing the cover to the Input/Output modules and sliding the cover off the power cord grommet.

6. Remove the front pedestal cover as follows:
Note the blue, red and grey wire harnesses on the right side leading to the front panel controls, AV-3 jacks and PC slots. Loosen and remove these wires from their wire ties.Grasp the pedestal cover at the ends and gently pull outward. It is installed with quick-release pins and should release easily.Gently pull the pedestal cover out, being careful to guide the wiring.Carefully disconnect the 3 wiring connectors, noting the color code for reconnection.In preparation of removing the front screen, 2 hidden screws must be removed. These 2 screws secure the bottom corners of the front screen and are installed from the back.

7. Remove the plastic housing where the lamp unit was removed:
Loosen the wire tie and remove the wires from the top of the plastic housing (these wires go to the lamp door switch).Remove 2 screws securing plastic housing. One on left side and other in base on right side (with limited space available, will need 1/4" wrench or stubby Phillips).Slowly pull housing from TV, until you can reach the connector to the lamp door switch. Note color code and disconnect wiring connector (may be easier to pull some wire through the hole and lift upward to remove connector).The front panel screw can now be seen in a recessed hole. Loosen this screw. (I did not remove the screw completely, to aid in reinstallation. Otherwise, a magnetic Phillips screwdriver may be needed.)8. From the area of the front panel wiring ties the other hidden front panel screw can be seen in a recessed hole. Loosen this screw.

9. Remove 11 of the 12 screws along the back of the TV securing the front screen, leaving one loosely installed at the top.

10. Remove 4 of the 5 screws on the front of the TV, at the bottom of the screen.

11. While holding the screen at the top and bottom, remove the two remaining screws, and gently lift and pull the front screen panel away from the TV.
Store the front screen assembly where the inside surfaces can be cleaned with the microfiber cloth and/or canned air.

12. Reassemble the TV in the reverse order, remembering to remove the tape from the hole covering color wheel, if installed earlier in step 3.


There are 3 fans to clean:
The large Lamp Fan behind the lamp and light engine assemblies is clearly visible.There are two smaller fans mounted next to each other. One fan is mounted between the cable card slot and the light engine and the other fan is mounted just to the right directly on the light engine assembly. It's somewhat inaccessible without removing the light engine, but using an extender tube on your canned air, it is easily cleaned.
The lens of the light engine will have the most dust. Clean with canned air and the microfiber cloth. Use a corner of the cloth to reach beneath the plastic tabs covering the lens.

The mirror may have a few dust particles. Gently wipe with the microfiber cloth and use canned air. Hope this helps,

Maytag side by side issue: Refrig works normal. However the freezer defrosted itself, food is thawed. I'd like to repair myself, what's your recommendation i.e. troubleshoot, what to look for prior to...


Pull the refrig out , and remove the back panel . Is the compressor running ? Is it hot ? Is the fan cooling the compressor , running ? If the compressor is not running , the piece on the side , with 2 or 3 wires going to it , is bad . If the fan is not running , replace the fan motor . The part number for the compressor piece ( overload/relay kit ) is 12002784 . It is easily replaceable . If the compressor is running , check the square black coil box ( condensor coil ) , to make sure it is clean . Is clean , check the fan in the freezer , to make sure it is working .

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Fan Replacement


If the fan spins freely the problem is most likely not the fan but the 8 pin smd Mos-Fet fan speed control current amp has failed. Not difficult to replace and are a common problem with these projectors.

Coin in dryer


The coin is probably rattling against the blower fan. First, unplug the dryer or turn off the main breaker. There are live voltages present inside a dryer even with the power shut off. Then, follow these steps: 1. Take out the lint screen. 2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door. There are a couple of screws under the front. The panel should pull straight down then come off. 3. Remove the blower fan housing. There will be 2 to 3 screws holding it in place. NOTE: If you did not take out your lint screen in STEP 1 you will know why I told you to take it out. The blower fan housing won't come off with the lint screen in place. Once you have the panel off you will be able to access the blower fan, and anything else that as gotten trapped inside the housing. This would be a good time to clean as well. Reassembly in the reverse order of what I just explained to you. Good luck and I hope this helps you.
