A cyclone fan is a type of fan to use in small environments. They come with different speeds and an automatic shut-off timer. It has expander panels, and you can fit it in almost any window quite easily. 

With proper maintenance and care, they can keep performing for a long time to come. We have listed down the following steps to help you clean your Lasko Cyclone Fan thoroughly. 

How to Clean Lasko Cyclone Fan – Step-by-Step

Step 1: Disconnecting your fan

First of all, you need to turn your fan off and unplug it from the power supply to begin the cleaning process. 

Step 2: Laying it down

The next step is to lay it down on a surface and ensure that the surface is stable. Finally, keep its front grille facing upward. 

Step 3: Removing the screws

The next step is to remove the screws at the back of the grille. Use a flat-head screwdriver between the back and front grille and push down gently. You will end up creating a gap between these two grilles.  

Step 4: Pulling the front grille

The next step is to pull the front grille until you see the fan blade. It will help if you use a clean and damp piece of cloth to wipe any dirt from the fan’s blades. But make sure you don’t touch the motor. 

Step 5: Pushing the front grille back down

The next step is to push the front grille back down and make sure to continue until it firmly connects with the grille on the back. Finally, it’s time to restore the screws on the back grille.

Step 6: Wiping the vents as well as grilles

The final step is to wipe the grilles and vents with the help of a clean piece of cloth. But make sure that the cloth is damp. After that, you can wipe dry the grilles and vents with another dry piece of cloth. 

Some Important Tips

Here are some essential tips to keep in mind when using or cleaning your Cyclone fan:

  • Maintain and clean your cyclone fan at least once a month if you want to get the best out of it. 
  • In case of any issue, you can also consult your owner’s manual to take the proper steps to disassemble your fan. 
  • If the grilles are not coming off, try to apply gentle pressure on them. Make sure you don’t hit them, or you will end up scratching the outer surface of your fan.
  • Keep its motor dry at all times, and make sure when you are cleaning with the damp cloth, you don’t touch the motor. Else, it won’t work once you turn your fan on. 


Cleaning a Cyclone fan is a straightforward process. You only have to take care of the motor while cleaning it with a moist cloth.
