with care. first remove the screws holding the covers, you will find them behind two or three small caps near the louvers and maybe under the filter cover. Completely remove the plastic face. Remove the screws holding the coil in place. You can only remove the left hand end as the right hand is connected to the pipework. remove the grub screw holding the fan barrel onto the motor shaft. Remove the screws holding the left hand bearing in place.
At this point you should be able to withdraw the fan barrel. Take very real care how you handle the coil, for if you kink the pipes your machine will no longer perform without some major surgery. While the unit is dismantled , try cleaning inside the machine, removing dust and mould.
Reassemble in reverse order
On the front bottom of the machine there is a plastic 'kick plate' that clips/pushes on. Remove this plate and you will see the filter with a cover secured by a star/phillips screw. Loosen screw and twist this cover off to gain acess. Don't do what i've just done and twist without removing this screw as it breaks it:-(
anyone who knows where i can get a filter cover please post back!
Unplug fan. Lay the fan face down. Remove the four screws holding the stand to the base. Slide the stand all the way off the cord. Look at bottom of fan and find the small half circle indent just to left of center. There is a screw there, remove it. Go to the hand grip at the top of the back and pry out the two white rubber plugs to reveal two more screws, remove them. Back cover can now slide downward. May take a little squeezing at the center of the grille where internal clip is. Remove two screws at top of squirrel cage. Turn squirrel cage and loosen screw at bottom collar on motor shaft. Tilt the top of the squirrel cage outward slightly and slide upward to remove the squirrel cage. You can slip upper metal bracket off and set aside. Motor is held in by two screws, remove them and flip motor out of the way. There are two screws below where motor sat that hold in base of front grille, remove. Front grille has a series of clips along edges, carefully pry them inward from bottom to top and push grille gently outwards. You can now clean the rear grille, front grille and squirrel cage in warm soapy water and allow to dry. While they are drying, use a vacuum and dust rags to clean interior. When parts are dry, reinstall front grille and reinstall 2 screws. Reinstall motor with two screws. Turn motor shaft so flat notch is pointing up. Recommend to spray a tiny bit of WD-40 or a tiny dab of moly grease on shaft at top of squirrel cage, then replace upper bearing bracket on top shaft. Slide collar end of squirrel cage onto motor shaft and align screw with shaft flat and tighten. Reinstall two screws at bracket at top of squirrel cage. Align back cover just a bit toward bottom, then slide upward and clips will snap into place. Reinstall two screws in hand hold area, then reinstall screw at bottom of cover at half circle notch. You'll need either a magnetic tip screwdriver or a pair of long needle-nosed pliers to get screw in hole before tightening. Feed cord back through base and reinstall 4 screws. It took me about half an hour to do this whole process on each of my two Hawaiian Breeze fans, but they now look brand new and run very quiet.
first remove the two screws on the back top of fan... then remove little cover on third screw which is located on the bottom of the outer casing.. i used a fork to poke the hole for leverage then pull it out... take out the three screws on the bottom (that hold the stand part of the fan).. now you can start removing the casing.. start to pull apart.. carefully... once you have opened one part you can use a flathead or a butter knife to pry open where there are clips on the sides.. the final clip is under the handle poke that one and your fan should be opened....
Yes, you can take off the fan. They are usually screwed into the heat sink or are clipped to the mainboard on top of the sink. Just be careful if you do this as it's easy to accidentally pop off the cpu and bend some pins. You may want to invest in a quieter fan for both the cpu and case if you already have it out.
is the fan running.... check how hot it is on the bottom.... could very likely be thermal shut down... if it gets to hot it shuts down before there is any damage.... see if you can remove the shield around the fan and clean out the dust and dirt and in my case cat hair. if you can't figure out how to get the cover off let me know... i should be able to find the service manual for you
With a little more detail on how to clean the 84001. There are 2 screws at the top of the unit on the back side and 1 on the bottom with a small removable cover. Remove those screws and the cover can be removed.
There will be some resistance towards the middle because of 2 clips on both sides. Be carefull not to pull too hard on the ends ; possibility of breaking the cover. Try pressing on center of the cover on one side of the edge.
There are 2 screws holding a bracket that holds the top of the fan. Remove those screws. Then on the bottom there is a shaft that attaches to the motor. You will find a set screw that you need to loosen. When you loosen and remove squirrel cage you will notice a flat spot on shaft. That is where the set screw is to be put when assembling the fan back together.
After cleaning just follow the steps back to assemble your 84001 and enjoy a clean brisk breeze. I hope this helps explain in more detail on how to clean it.
On the backside of the fan at the botton is a little screw cover. Remove the cover then remove the screw. On the backside top of the fan right under the handle are two screws remove both of them. Gently pry the sides apart, about half way down on both sides are two molded clips, you can use a small flat blade screw driver to help seperate the cover.
Everything is screwed into the back on a laptop. You must remove the top which is called the palmrest to get inside. Usually you would remove all the screws from the bottom of the notebook. Then remove the cover usually just above the keyboard and the keyboard itself. Then the screen needs to come off, usually a few more screws. Then a few more screws from the palmrest and it should come off. Then you will be at the motherboard and your should see the fans. I don't recomment doing all this though. Usually a few sprays from an air duster can into the exhaust vents will get the dust out of your fans without taking the machine apart.
