  • 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.
