Marvin Box Fan Cleaning

Hi I have a Marvin Box Fan, 3 speed with remote. It needs cleaned and I don't remember how to get the darn thing apart to clean! It works fine but is filthy. Manual is misplaced and I just need to know how it comes apart. I have cleaned it before but the senility must be setting in because I don't remember HOW it comes apart.

Thanks for your help!

    Thank you so much! Now it can be cleaned properly and taken back to my brother in the nursing home. I figured I had to take the phillips head screws out but was unsure about the middle where the motor is, I thought there was a tip on that in the manual but the manual is gone.

It has six phillips-head screws around the perimeter. Loosen all six screws and the halves separate. Be careful loosening the screw that holds the motor in place - I ended up stripping the head. If you can use a vice grip to get it started, that may help.

How do i take apart my lasko cyclone fan to clean the inside of it


You may need to UNSCREW the front half of you fan guard plastic casing or depress it in a few place if you see notches on the cage itself. Remember the knobs you will be removing to take the blades off to clean will be threaded opposite, one will screw off and on clockwise then other counter clockwise. Be sure FAN is UNPLUGGED BEFORE YOU open it up. Lay all parts in bathtub, Spray with Cleaning foam, pour lots of water over to clean all sides, then let drain and dry in bathtub. Less muss and fess this way!

How to take apart remote


Don waste you time taking it apart. I work for them for several years and all you need to do is take it to the store and say it's faulty and they will replace it for free.

mcdevito75 here, hello ken, I did a fast search and I think www. shop.com can help you out with Marvin air fans, I didn"t find anything on Marvin Air Fans itself. Now about the nose cone covering the nut holding the blade to the fan shaft, most of these nose covers are press fit, see if you can gently pry that nose cover off with a small screwdriver.

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.

2001 Town and Country. Only Hi works on heater/ac fan. Guessing the fan motor is shot. Where is the darn thing?


There should be a resistor pack that the wires are going to. This is your culprit. If it only works on high, replace the fan speed controller/resistor. The blower motor is behind the glove box. BE SURE TO REMOVE THE NEGATIVE SIDE OF THE BATTERY FIRST(AIR BAG EQUIPED!). There will be the controller in the ducting nearest the fan.

Heater fan dont work all the time on my 94 volvo 960


After some years, the the filters (made of foam) in the HVAC system can become dry-rotted. Debris from the rotted foam, as well as dust, can accumulate in various places within the system. Unfortunately, the motor housing of the blower is one place in which the dust and debris accumulate very well. To fix the problem, you have to remove the cover from the blower, and vacuum clean it. The blower is behind the glove box, on the lower right side.

A word of caution: The fan cage (which looks like a gerbil wheel) can become brittle, over the years. After cleaning out the blower motor, the blower will be able to freely spin at full speed, again. This may be too much for an old brittle fan. If your old blower can't take the force of spinning at full speed, you will hear it break apart inside its chamber. I discovered this, the hard way. After cleaning the dust and debris from my Volvo's blower motor, the blower spun at full speed and the fan broke apart. So, I had to buy and install a whole new blower.

I'm sure you put fresh batteries in the remote...right? Most of the time you can correct remote problems by carefully taking the remote apart and cleaning all the contact points with a pencil eraser.

MY HEATER FELL OER BACKWARD AND NOW ITY WONT HEAT . THE FAN WONT COME ON...NOTHING. WHAT?


Just needs a little TLC: We just bought this heater at Goodwill and it's still in very good condition. The fan wasn't working either, but there was definitely heat. So we took it home and took it apart just to the point where we could give the fan a good q-tip/tweezers cleaning (lots of dust was in there) and then used Penzoil motor high temp grease via a toothpick on the spinning fan axle and voila! The fan works now and doesn't make anymore noise either. Just a note: this is a tedious task that requires an extra hand to help hold things in place since you can't take the fan out completely.
