Question about Bionaire BT45RC Tower Fan
Since the fan has started sqeeky noise, we need to clean up inside.
We unscrewed to try to open and uncover, but we couldn't uncover it. How can we reach inside?
Thank you in advance.
Unplug the unit from the wall for safety. Remove the two screws in the upper hand grip recess (upper back of the unit). The two screws must be completely removed (not just loose and setting in the holes). Once the two screws are out, the back half of the fan cover can be slid downward (some amount of force is needed to unsnap the two halves from each other but be careful since the parts are all plastic and can possibly snap). Once the back is unsnapped from the front, you can lift the back half away from the front half and the inside parts are now accessible. I have found on my fan that it is the top fan shaft / bushing that is causing the squeaking noise that so many have complained about. I have found that periodically lubricating the top shaft/bushing will make the fan sound like new again - for a while. Every 2 - 3 weeks I need to clean (wipe off old lube) and re-apply fresh lube).
