    I have a Honeywell Commercial Grade floor fan purchased several years ago from Sears. I cannot figure out how to get the face plate off in order to clean the blades and rotor.

The front wire grating has hooks all around the edge that latch onto the rear grating. You need at least two screwdrivers, blades or thin & stiff shims to pry half the hooks off. Do this by inserting your shims between the front and rear grates, on either side of a hook. Then, lever your shims such that the rear grate warps enough to free a hook and let it pass in front. (Note: this IS difficult; the first hook will not want to clear the rear grate. It helps to have an extra pair of hands, and/or another object to temporarily keep the first hook seperated. It may also be possible to start with three shims and clear two hooks in the beginning). Continue clearing the hooks in a consecutive fashion (they're progressively easier) until half of them are off, at which point the front grate should come off using a little muscle. A couple notes: if available, a plastic shim is preferable over a metal one because it shouldn't damage the nice finish as much (alternatively, wrap your shims in cloth). It is NOT necessary to remove the whole fan cage from the stand to do this. Expect the reverse process to be equivalently challenging. Please wear safety glasses in case your shim breaks or slips. Lastly, good luck if you try to lubricate the shaft. I've tried multiple substances, but day-long blowing continually dries out the lubricant.

I have a Honeywell commercial grade floor fan that the switch went out on. how can I wire it direct and bypass the switch

Disconnect or cut both wires from the switch. Strip about one half inch of insulation from both wires to expose the bare copper wires. Twist them together using a wire nut cap. Wrap with black electrical tape. You could solder the twisted wires together and then use electrical tape to wrap them too. Either method will work fine.

there should be just some sort of snaps, or hooks holding the guard on. I have yet to see a fan that doesn't. but if there is any, take the clips off of the guard, and clean the blades.

Cleaning a 14F0 Honeywell Fan

thank you for using fixya. The blade cage has locks and screws that you can remove from the back. once the cage has been removed, you can remove the blade attached to the motor using a vacuum cleaner or you can remove the blades by undoing the screw on the center detaching it from the motor.
