Introduction: Servicing an Old Fan.
This 12 year old fan never spins when powered. It is so clogged with lint it can't spin! Here is how I fixed this in 5 minutes.
Step 1: Taking It Apart.
Taking off the front grill with a flat blade screwdriver and the back cover by removing the lone Phillips head screw, the fan is ready to be serviced.
Step 2: Cleaning.
Using a brush I cleaned off the lint and washed the fan blade.
Step 3: Lubing.
Using powerlube I sprayed lubrication onto the bearings and rotor.
Step 4: Reassembly.
Half a minute to reassemble. Now to power up.
Step 5: Completion.
Now the fan spins quite powerfully and provides refreshing breeze!
