How to Assemble an Oscillating Fan
To assemble an oscillating fan, chances are the only tool you will need is a screwdriver, if that because it is user friendly and easy to do. Depending on the fan size there might be a little more work involved. For instance, commercial fans are fairly heavy duty compared to an average home model and may require more complicated assembly. Considering that most people buy an oscillating fan for their home, read the instructions carefully, but it should be as easy as 1-2-3.
Remove all the parts from the box and lay them out for easy viewing. Assemble the base and the stand first. The next step will probably involve mounting the motor onto the stand. If there is a back cap to the motor, that should be screwed on or popped on at this time. Again, follow the directions provided carefully for the specifics. Next you will affix the fan blades onto the pegs around the motor. Make sure the blades are all facing outward. There should be a front motor cover or central hub that you will either screw or pop onto the front center, securing the blades in place. The last step is to join the two pieces of the grille together, front and back. You may need your screwdriver for this task or not if it uses pop-on clamps.
Before you plug the fan in, make sure every piece is secure and in the right place. Plug into a power supply and enjoy the cool breeze!
How To Care For A Desk Fan
A desk fan is a great thing to have to keep your personal space cooled off during the warm season. To ensure that your fan keeps working at optimum efficiency there are some things you can do.
1 – Keep Oiled
Every season that you bring your fan out, you should first do some basic maintenance. One of the main things you should be doing is keeping the parts to your fan well lubricated. Be sure to oil any bearings, blades and gears.
2 – Keep Cleaned
Any type of fan will accumulate dust and dirt so it’s important to include in your regular maintenance a good cleaning. You can use a vacuum to clean the screen face and a cloth and gentle cleanser to keep the blades clean.
3 – Replace Parts
If any parts need to be replaced, be sure to take care of it right away. The longer the fan runs with faulty or loose parts, the higher the chance becomes of having to replace the whole unit. You can find parts from the manufacturer or from any local supplier.
4 – Proper Storage
Between uses or between warm seasons, be sure to store your fan in a manner that protects the unit and in a place where it will not accumulate a large amount of dirt or dust.
