Question about Lasko 2152C Hassock Floor / Box Fan

Open Question

Need to Open Older Lasko Hassock Fan.

Ribbon wrapped around axle of older Lasko hassock fan. How can I open the fan to untangle this mess? The screws at the bottom of the fan look as if they'd disengage the motor and fan assembly from the housing but I wouldn't be able to pull it out because the opening is too small.

Info from bottom of fan: E20739, Type HA-12F, Style G, Listed 154C.

    How do you clean the E20739 model of Lasko Ionizing Tower

    Huge dust bunnies inside fan remain even when I tried to vacuum
    outer surface with a brush attachment unsuccessfully,  There are two screws at the top - four screws at the bottom
    on the back cover of the fan, but they cannot be moved with a screw driver.  Are they supposed to be removed to
    clean the fan?  I am experiencing
    very severe asthma and need to clean the product ASAP.   Please help.  Can't find a user manual on-line.

    I have it down to one screw at the top that will not unscrew with a phiillips screwdriver or any type of screwdriver I have tried.
    The four screws at the lower back of my fan came out, but the one at the top does not accept any pattern of screwdriver I have tried. I am considering using a drill bit to destroy the screw but the risk is that the metal filings can get imside the circuits and damage them.

I would love to tell you yes, but I ended up buying new fan.
The common wire was broken, buried in the windings and no way to repair without
damaging the windings.
Could not find anything on line.

SOURCE: Cleaning

Model E20739: The entire back comes off to expose the fan blades after removing two screws. Just unplug the unit. On the back of the unit near the top is a recess that acts as a carrying handle. In that area you will see two large silver-colored screws. Remove these, grasp the back of the unit and push down on it as you pull it away from the body of the fan. You may have to wiggle it around a little to free it.

How to disassemble lasko hassock floor fan

I'm assuming you want to open the fan up to give it a thorough cleaning. This is how I got one open. First things first, make sure it's unplugged. No need to risk zapping yourself of accidentally turning it on when your fingers are in range of the fan blade...

Turn the fan upside down. There are four very long Phillips screws concealed by long plastic sleeves that cover the shafts of the screws, with the ***** heads covered by the rubber feet at the bottom of the unit. Pop out the rubber feet, then loosen the screws (there will likely be an alarming snap when they break loose). The two-piece top of the unit will come loose. You can then remove the screws and the plastic sleeves that hide the screws.

Turn the unit right side up and remove the fan blade. The nut holding the blade on is reverse thread, so "lefty loosy, righty tighty" will not apply--turn the nut clockwise to loosen. Remove the nut and lock washer, then pull the blade from underneath the hub (it'll take a bit of force to pop it off.

The wire from the motor to the speed control switch connects the base to the cylindrical center portion of the unit. To separate the center portion from the base, pull the knob off of the shaft of the switch and remove the ***** holding it in place. The switch can then be disconnected from the center piece. I'd put the ***** back into the switch to keep it from disappearing.

The motor can be removed from the base by removing the three screws holding it to the base from underneath, but unless you're looking to replace the motor, you shouldn't need to do this.

Put it back together by reversing the disassembly process.

My lasko tower fan gets power n wont blow air

The bearings on the motor are dry and need oil. It's really not made to be oiled, but you may be able to take it apart and get some oil to the bearings if you want to mess with it.

How To Clean

On the back of the fan there are 6 recessed phillips head screws around the circumfrence of the fan. You must use a longer screwdriver as the screws are set in a couple of inches.

The two screws on the bottom are a little harder to see.

There are also two clips on the sides front cover. Squeeze on the sides gently to release these.
