    Anybody have an idea of how to remove the fan?

    I'd like to clean the top of the dome and need to remove the fan to separate the two acrylic pieces.

    Thanks!

    I gave you instructions for a Roll-X & then discovered my mistake & erased it

    Cleaning a Turn-X is really delicate & unless you have better than average mechanical skills, I wouldn't recommend it. . You might be better off to take a crevice tool on a vacuum & go around the inside plate at the dome & remove the nuts& remove the motor guard & vacuum as much as you can . If your vacuum has a blower you can also blow into those areas. Don't use a shop vac to blow it out because you stretch the heater element due to the force of the air

    Thanks Bill!


    I've actually taken it apart and reassembled it a few times I just can't remember how to separate the fan from the actual motor shaft.

    Generally, to clean dust I use an air compressor that has an attachment to inflate soccer balls. It can direct the aim of air pretty accurately to get the dust without damaging the components.

    Thanks
