Question about Marvin 1210 Floor / Box Fan

Open Question

I have a Model 1225 adjustable stand fan with remote control. I have not been able to loosen the whirlcool guard so I can get it apart to clean the blades. I thought you could loosen it but it just keeps turning like its stuck or something and the blades are really dirty and need cleaned. Can you help me figure out what to do. Thank you.

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.

Lasko table fan model 4916 , I would like to know how to take it apart to clean it.


Kevin-
LASKO's typically have latches or clips that hold the front fan guard to the back fan guard.
Flip latches or carefully remove the plastic clips. This will reveal the 'nut' that secures the fan 'blade assembly'. Note, the nut has 'lefthand' thread so to remove it, turn it clockwise to remove.
The fan blade assembly can be pulled / wiggled free.
The fan blade assembly can be washed with water / wiped with a cloth.
Another nut (righthand thread) secures the back half of the fan guard, remove it and remove the guard.
That should do it.

I have a small hawaiian breeze fan that is all metal with a small metal stand and I took it apart to clean it and I removed the fan blade as well upon cleaning. I put it back together and now it runs way...


did you take any wires off or did you take the switch out ?
If you only removed the fan guard and blade then I have no idea what could have happened
If you removed the motor or wires then possibly you have wired it wrong .You could od a search on the mfg website ands ee if they have a wiring diagram

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!

How to remove blades of fan


First, make sure the fan is unplugged. Second, remove the front fan guard. Then to remove the blade you have to loosen the dome like nut nut at the center of the fan. This is a left handed thread so you will need to turn it the opposite direction (clockwise) of a regular nut in order to loosen it.

Have several small DT-70 table fans. Wondering is it possible to take them apart for cleaning? I have NO idea where my manuals are, bought them several years ago. If they cannot come apart for cleaning,...


There are 6 screws, deeply recessed, in the rear of the fan case. (At least that is how they are on mine, phillips or cross head)
Once they are loosened, the front and back will come apart. I Do that annually so it can be thoroughly cleaned..
Otherwise, I use a toothbrush to fit between the slots to get most of the dust, also a paintbursh with stiff bristles for the outside grills.. Similar small brushes should work for loose dust. Also can blow out loose dust with a shop vac with blower capability.
