There are three 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 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 shold come off.

I have an old Vornado floor fan (sits on pole which curls around to form base) and cannot figure out how to open it to clean. I've read through all the other questions, which indicate clips or screws....


Hello Johnsbrandt - I had the exact problem. As you note, the four slits are they key. They are tabs that hold the outer ring in place. Press them so that they no longer catch on the back ring, and you should be able to slide the outer ring right off. The outer ring on mine was somehow catching on the blade, plus it was dirty, so it was good to get this off. Hope this helps! Lance

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.

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.

Vornado Circulating Fan - motor will run but blades will not turn.


Does the motor spin, but the blade is not turning?
The motor has a D shaped shaft. If the hole in the blade that the shaft goes in is rounded, then the blade will spin. In that case you need a new blade. Vornado can supply that.

3 speed standing fan. #1 the blade barely rotates.#2 a little faster. #3 it starts slow then speeds up like it's going to take off. It also makes an annoying sound like it's rubbing on something or is...


It is the motor. Probably needs cleaning and lubrication.
You can send it to Vornado.
It is not hard to get apart, just draw a diagram of what color wire is what speed.
You "could" do it yourself.
