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!

The fan won't turn on at all.


Turn the fan to the on position and feel the motor casing. Is there any vibration at all? If not, refer to your operating manual to see if there's a fuse that can be replaced. Spare fuses are sometimes attached to the cord. Also try slightly spreading the 2 prongs that conduct electricity through the wall socket for good contact.

If you DO feel vibrating, try a maintenence cleaning and lubrication with either Graphite powder, 3 in 1 machine oil or WD40. I will take you through the steps:
1) unplug the fan
2) there will either be flip releases or notches to slightly pry loose the protective fan SCREEN blade housing. Pop this off and clean + dry it, set aside.
3) With fan blaeds exposed, look at the very center of the blades. There will be a large plastic nut that turns counter closkwise to release the fan blades. Do this, clean blades with warm soapy water. Rinse, dry and set aside.
Behind this will be another large plastic nut that releases the back side of the blade housing. This nut should turn closkwise this time. Again, clean, dry and set aside.
4) You should be down to the motor, stand and fan motor stem. Check for residue build up and clean with a Qtip. You can still remove the housing face and clean behind this if necessary. There will be several screws holding this on. Wiggle apart.
5) Lay fan on its back with the fan motor stem facing up toward the ceiling.
6) At the base of the stem, one small tap of one lubricant of your choise. No more than one quick shot WD40 or 2 drops 3 in 1 machine oil.
7) By hand, gently turn the motor stem closkwise to disburse lubricant. Wipe off any excess with a tissue.

Follow the reverse steps to reassemble. If you had latches on the face, line up the notches or the name on the face to be level at allignment. If you had to pry the face off with a flat blade screw driver, again line up the screen guard (face) and pop/squeaze it back together.

This maintence should be done twice per year to assure a long life! They are made to come apart for maintence so don't be afraid. Take pictures as you go for easy referrance. It relieves you of the tension of remembering what went where! Hope this was helpful!

Hampton Bay ceiling fan model #640.659 do not respond to the remote properly, the fan run just in low and medium and the lights stay on.


I think your problem is that the contacts on the remote are dirty for the different speeds and lights and need to be cleaned. It's a bit tedious but heres how.

Turn off the fan and take the remote to another room. Have the following tools handy: small screwdriver for screws on the remote; pencil with rubber eraser.

1) Carefully remove the screws from the remote to take it apart. You can remove the battery first if you want. Remember which screws go into which holes since some may be longer than others.

2) Take off the back of the remote. You should see the back side of a second circuit board that the controls on the front of the remote make contact with.

3) You may need to remove this second board to see the contacts which are completed when the buttons on the front of the remote are pressed.

4) Carefully turn over the second board to separate it from the control buttons on the front.

5) The locations on the board that correspond to the buttons on the front should look silvery. If you see black carbony dust or a film on them, they are the problem

6) Use the rubber eraser on the pencil and gently rub the contacts until the black dust is gone and the contacts appear clean.

7) Put the remote back together in the reverse order and good luck.

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.

Fan remote does not work


You need to carefully take your remote apart and clean ALL contact points including electronic board and the rubber pad contacts with a pencil eraser. After cleaning contacts with the eraser, blow out eraser dust and put remote back together. If there is no issue at the fan, your remote should be operational once again!

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.

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.
