Can I oil the fan motor?

Oiling the fan motor is NOT recommended. It does not help the noise problem, because the noise comes from within the fan motor usually from the worn out bearings, and these bearings already have machine oil on the inside, so adding more oil will not help the problem most of the time. The only solution is to replace the fan motor, and you can get a new fan motor from the parts page of our web site, or from us at NO charge if your machine is under our 3-year parts and labor warranty.

NOTE: When a FAN BLADE is making noise, sometimes lightly oiling the fan motor shaft only (on which the fan blade sits) helps the noise problem. But this is only when the noise comes from the fan blade itself, which is rare! 99% of the time, the noise will come from the worn out fan motor, with only one effective solution to follow - replacement! especially on older air purifier models.

The best way to clean the fan blade is to wipe it with damp cloth. Fan motor itself could be wiped with a dry cloth, or you can use compressed air can to dust away any particulate on it. Such an air can could be bought for under $8 in any office supplies store.
