  • Optionally you may clean the fan with Air + Q-Tips. To remove the blade turn the fan over and gently pull the fan blade from the housing.

  • If the fan is no longer operational, it may be possible to temporarily repair it by removing the fan blade and put a small amount of WD-40 on the pinion shaft hole the fan rotates in. A toothpick is a good applicator. Do NOT contaminate the motor area with any of the dust/grime that has accumulated.

  • Insert the fan blade and move the blades with your finger. It should spin freely and cog to a stop. Again this is a temporary fix!
