Hi,
There should be a black round nut in front of the blades in the very center. It will have ribs on it so you can grab it. Turn it Counter clockwise, and it should unscrew.
Then you can remove the blade assembly and get to the back cage to tighen the screws.
This should take care of the problem.
Re assemble in reverse order.
Let me know if you have any more questions or if this doesnt work.
Good luck.
Mac

    I have seen some fan hubs unscrew counter-clockwise, but the general rule is simply that to remove, hold the blades in place and turn the hub in the same direction that the blades would turn in normal foreward operation. They are designed that way so that motor torque from normal usage, doesn't eventually work the hub loose.

    I meant to say that I have seen some that unscrew clockwise, or rather, that depending on the model and the direction of the motor in normal foreward operation, it could go either way.

Why is my Holmes HASF-1710 not getting power


This may be a duplicate post but here's my advice. Do a little disassembly to get to the "guts" of the fan. It is not uncommon for the speed control switch to break in such a way as to not allow the circuit to be completed. You may have to actually remove the switch and inspect it to be sure of this. I've had trouble finding replacement switches so I have put them back together with superglue. If this is your problem and you choose to use this solution just be sure all the switch parts get put back where they belong. If this is not your problem, break out the ohm meter and start checking your connections. Hope this helps

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.

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.

If there is nothing hitting the fan blades and the fan makes a grinding noise then the fan bearing is faulty. You may be able to place a drop of oil on the bearing under the label in the center of the fan and if this does not work then you need to replace the fan.
