    Got me a GQF sportsman 1502 and a GQF brooder for $450 off craigslist. It is in really good shape, just a little dusty inside. Question...what is the best way to get behind the fan to clean. It looks like taking the back off would be best????? I am ready to fire it up!

    Yup, I pulled the back off of mine. After you take the screws out you will probably find it is still held in place by double sided foam tape. Go ahead and pry it off carefully. While the back is off scrape off the remaining tape and replace it with self stick foam weatherstrip from your local hardware store. Next time you want to open it up for cleaning it will come right off.
