The fan went round and round until....

it stopped.  Aw, shucks. If it doesn't work on low speed I'll just it up pop a notch to medium. That worked for three days. Ut-oh. The fan stopped working on medium speed.  It's always been like analog clockwork!  Going round and round very quickly.  Gosh, what's wrong? Since I use the fan in my bedroom at night, I rarely really  look at it.  I just turned it on.  When I moved the fan to the kitchen it was dis -gusting! I started with old toothbrushes, with the fan over the kitchen sink. That should have gotten the dust/dirt off.  Bad idea.  All it did was spread sticky dust over everything in the kitchen. And the toothbrushes couldn't reach the blades. The grate was too narrow for them I tried the next item on my hit list. The mini wet-dry vac.  Blew it full blast!  All the dust/dirt did was stay in one place. That was really gross. There's got to be a way to clean the blades.  Ah-ha!  A small screw.  It looks like it keeps the metal circle secured
