Question about Panasonic FV-11VQ3 WhisperCeiling Ceiling Mount Fan

Cleaning the blades

Have FV-11VQ3 fan--was cleaning it--noticed some dust caked onto the blades of the fan--vacuum does not seem to clean it. Tried Q tips--but not easy to clean with them. Any suggestions about how to clean? Was thinking of air compressor.

    An air compressor would work. It might be a bit too powerful for it.



    Those cans of air they sell in office supply stores might work too.

How do I clean the dust off a Stanley floor fan?


Unplug it. Carefully take off the grill and use a vacuum and/ or a damp cloth to clean the blades etc. Do not soak with water. Just a DAMP cloth on the blades only!!!!

My quiet bathroom fan makes a roaring noise


The roaring noise is probably the fan blades (looks like a hamster wheel) are worn out as it rotates on the spindle/shaft.

It may be a problem with the 4" exhaust ducting, that connects to the exit part of the fan, has come loose. Theres a damper (kinda like a flapper) at the fan/ducting joint may have broken off and may be sitting sideways in the ducting flapping around inside the duct.

At any rate I highly doubt its wiring. Sounds like its time to pull the fan cover off (turn the power off first via the wall switch or the service panel breaker would be even better) and look at the fan blades. Clean off any dust bunnies, lint, etc. and turn the fan back on. Did the noise stop?

If nothing looks out of place and it still makes noise you'll have to get in the attic and remove the ducting from the fan and see if theres a problem at the connection there. Maybe a squirrel put its bedding in the ducting? It happens.

Could be lots of reasons for the noise but wiring it wrong wouldn't cause roaring. The fan wouldn't work, or worst burn up, if wiring was the issue. The problem is the more than likely the fan blade assy is worn out or something is restricting the air flow in the ducting going to the outside of the house.

Clean fan


Flip open the latches around the cage to open that part up. Once open, turn the knob in the middle of the blade to the right. Normally iyou turn it left, but on this ne you turn right. That enables yo to remove the blade. Behind the blade is a rather large plastic nut, which you turn to remove and that takes the back part of the screen off. Use your vacuum to vacuum out the dust from the motor, the cages, and the fan blade. After that use a mild soap and water solution to wipe off the rest. I found it very helpful if you use a thick wet hand towel to clean the wire cage. It cleans it very well! Then just put it all back together again and your fan will look brand new.

The dust build-up on the fan blades is incredible. I need something to clean them, like a small brush. Any suggestions?


The inside part of the fan should be able to be taken out for cleaning. The best thing to use to clean the blades is compressed air, or if thats not an option then an old toothbrush should do the trick.

Cleaning black wood fan blades for casablanca fan


I have had good results using a product called Scott's
Liquid Gold. It's available in many stores including grocery stores. I started using it to clean up console televisions after repairing them. Make sure you wipe it clean after using it. The residue will attract dust if you don't. It's sort of a "super Pledge"

Why does my PC fan run continuesly?


Usually, there are two fans on a desktop PC. Some computer have three.

One cools down the power supply and it may be quite noisy after a while because the dust in the fan. The second one is to cool down the processor and usually it doesn't stops, it only changes its speed according the heat.

If there is a third one, it will stop when the temperature is cool enough for the system.

Only on notebooks the processor fan stops completely after a while to save some energy.

Lasko 3520 20-Inch Cyclone fan - disassemble fan for cleaning?


How do I clean my Cyclone or Air Companion™?
Lay the fan face up on a flat surface. The front grill should be facing you. Remove the screws from the rear grill. Place a flat-head screwdriver into the gap between the front and rear grills. Pull the front grill towards you, exposing the fan blade. Do not remove the knobs on either side. Then, wipe the blade with a soft, damp cloth. Use a mild detergent if necessary. Be sure not to touch the motor. Click here to download product instruction sheet.

Honeywell HFD 135 FAN BLADES DIRTY


I used a can of compressed air to clean my fan blades and this did the job. I bought a 6-pack of 3M Dust Remover at Sams Club to save money. Hope this helps.
