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.

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.

Good Morning: I have an older Kenmore Dryer with the serial # of : 77982600 and the belt broke. I can get the new belt but am wondering how it goes on. Do I have to remove the felt belt on the backside?...

One of the 3 "ribs" inside the dryer drum fell off. How does one go about getting to the outside of the drum to reattach the rib with its screws.

older models you take screws off around the top, check for them by lint filter too. then you pry the front(spring clips) and swing it open, back usually has a cheap hinge mechanism.

How do I get the fan belt inside of the Dryer?

These do not have a "fan belt" rather the fan is attached directly to the motor. however the "drum belt" is another matter...First unplug the unit from the wall.

This is a process that takes a little practice, so if you're not mechanically inclined, it'll take some, how should I put it...patience. An experienced tech. like myself can do this in roughly 5 mins. I digress.

...after unplugging the unit from the wall, lets do this step by step. (or follow link attached) http:////

1) open the dryer door.
2) remove the screws at the top of the drum opening that hold the top down secure. (get a magnetic screw will be handy later, especially in step 5)
Now you should be able to feel the top free to lift up.
3) lift the top up while gently pulling it towards you. It should come off completely and you'll see the drum and belt (if the belt hasn't fallen into the bottom after breaking).
4) standing over the unit with the top removed, look down to the left and the right of the inside front and you should see a single screw on each side.
5) while applying slight pressure to the front with a knee or leaning into it, remove those screws.
Once these screws are removed, the front panel is almost ready to come off, but wait...WIRES.
6) To your left (when facing the unit) just below the door opening, there will be the door switch. remove those wires (remember or mark there location) as well as the two for the drum light at the top of the door opening...if applicable. now you should be able to move the front away to the side freely.
7) now the tricky part. if the belt is broke, you should be able to reach in and remove it. place the new belt around the drum with the "v grooves" facing the drum. once the belt is around the drum, you'll have to get both hands in there, place it over the idler pulley/belt tensioner. (you're almost there) once you've done that, grab the belt from under the "idler" (careful to keep it contacting the wheel on the idler) and pull the belt back towards the motor pulley and wrapping it around the pulley so as the "v grooves" in the belt align with the grooves in the motor pulley. It should be like an "S" shape when installed.4a17d60.jpg
If you've managed to do that without anyone visually showing you how...well done. It's tough even when trained at first.

putting it back together is only a matter of reverse order of disassembly, althought the top can be tricky to line up at the console. (you may find it easier to loosen the screws on the console to slide the top into the grooves at the back support).

hope that helps. It's a tough one to explain, especially the looping of the belt around the idler.

good luck.

Maytag gas dryer. Belt broken. How do I open and replace it?

On the right front and left front of the panel there are 2 phillips head screws. They are about 4 inches up from the floor. Remove these 2 screws,lift the door panel out then down to dislodge the top clips. Remove the door switch wires and set the door aside. Remove 4 screws from the front drum support. @ on the right,2 on the left. Remove the drum support.Install the belt around the drum. The smooth side of the belt goes against the drum. Re-attach all the parts in front. Remove the belt access panel on the rear of the dryer on the bottom right side facing the dryer to arrange the belt around the motor pulley and tension roller.

My hoover tumble dryer hnv 380 is making grinding noise when in turns. Seems the drum bearing needs replacing. I am looking for instructions on how to fix this problem.

I've had exactly the same problem with this model and nearly traded it in as it was getting so noisy. However - it can be fixed! You need some general purpose grease from Halfors etc and some WD-40 and a philps screwdriver. Just follow these steps to get the front panel off the dryer: Instructions to lubricate the pulley wheels on the Hoover HNV380 dryer 1. Disconnect from the mains 2. Unscrew screws at the top of the rear of the dryer which allows the top panel of the dryer to slide backwards out. 3. To take off the front of the dryer, unscrew the screws at the top of the inside front panel, next lay the dryer onto it?s back and open the dryer?s door? there are 4 screws on one side and two on the other ? leave the outer 2 screws on the side that has 4 screws which keep the door on and unscrew 2 inner screws and the two screws on the other side. Then finally there are 3 more screws on the under panel to unscrew. This allows the front panel to be moved enough to see inside the dryer. 4. Check the belt that wraps around the drum is ok and centrally in position. 5. Under the drum the belt wraps around the spindle of the motor and is guided by the 2 pulley wheels. These wheels are probably the main culprit of the noise and can sometimes be reproduced by pulling at the belt through the wheels. Put plenty of grease around the pulleys and keep turning the belt to ensure that the grease gets into every bit of the wheels. 6. Then spray WD-40 around the pulleys for good measure and also into the motor and spindle. Make sure there are no more squeaks when you turn the drum by pulling at the belt trough the pulley wheels. 7. Re-assemble the dryer by going back trough the steps in reverse. 8. Just to be certain once the dryer is re-assembled undo the silver cover on the back of the dryer and spay more WD-40 around the plastic fan and into the motor through the fan. I reckon that this should last for a good 12 months or more before starting to squeek again - so far it's been 2 months and sounds as good as new Good Luck

Kenmore dryer makes roaring oise when the drum turns

I have the same problem. I thought originally it was the seal around the drum but we pinpointed it to the fan motor. We think there is something wrapped around the fan motor or the bearings is going out.We would have to take everything out the drum and belt and motor to get to the problem. If you take the back panel off and take the lint trap off you can turn the fan and you can hear the loud noise. We tried spraying wd-40 around the fan pin but don't get any on the motor. It will burn it up if you do that. But it didn't work so you will have to take everything out.

GE Dryer model DBXR463EDIWW

If there is no lint blocking the air outlet path, I would next check two things: First, is the dryer in a small, closed room? If there is not enough space for air to get in to the dryer, it won't have good airflow through the clothes. Second, for older dryers, the blower fan may be loose on its shaft or, if the blower has its own separate motor, the blower motor might be dead. In order to find the blower fan, you'll have to be able to open up the dryer. Once you find the fan, see if it turns easily without moving the motor shaft -- if so, you need to replace the fan. Also, be sure there isn't anything blocking the blades of the fan.

Drum won't turn

not really, it may only be a little effort to figure out how the new belt gets wrapped onto the tensioner pulley...the broken one is surely on the floor coiled up under the dryer like a dead snake....don't's dead.
