I have a four year old box fan that occasionally needs to be "hand-started" to get going. It takes a couple of flips, like hand starting a propeller.
I'd like to disassemble and degrease the fan and motor and re-assemble.
There has to be millions of this kind of fan out there. It's the type with a 3 speed plus off rotary switch.
Can the fan & motor assembly be disassembled enough to clean and re-grease it?
