olá, amigos neste post saberemos como limpar um motor de ventilador de tecto

Coisas que você vai precisar

  • folha velha
  • Escada
  • Aspirador de pó com ferramenta para fendas e mangueira ou lata de ar comprimido

Poeira, sujeira e sujeira parecem se acumular nas pás dos ventiladores de teto durante a noite. Não importa o quanto você limpe, a poeira e a sujeira transportadas pelo ar estão constantemente se prendendo aos componentes do ventilador de teto, incluindo o motor do ventilador. Poeira e sujeira, se deixadas no ventilador de teto, podem entupir o motor do ventilador e causar sua falha. Ao limpar o motor do ventilador de teto, você não precisa retirá-lo do teto ou chamar um técnico. Você mesmo pode limpar o motor.

Passo 1

Desligue o ventilador de teto, se estiver ligado. Coloque um lençol velho sob o ventilador de teto. Se algum móvel estiver sob o ventilador, mova-o para o lado.

passo 2

Place a ladder to one side of the fan. Place your vacuum cleaner, with its hose and crevice tool attached, on the other side of the ceiling fan.

Step 3

Turn on the vacuum, climb the ladder and vacuum the openings above the ceiling fan’s blades—this the housing containing the fan’s motor.

If the motor housing is movable, slide the housing up or down to access the entire motor.

Step 4

Vacuum the top of the motor’s housing to remove dust and dirt from inside of the housing. Vacuum the top of the ceiling fan’s blades to collect any dust, dirt and debris that has fallen from the housing.

Step 5

Roll up the old sheet after you are done cleaning the ceiling fan. Shake off any debris on the sheet into your home’s trash receptacle.


Clean your ceiling fan motor/housing monthly to keep dust and dirt from building up on the fan.

If you don’t have a vacuum cleaner with a hose and crevice tool, use a can of compressed air to blow dust and dirt from your ceiling fan’s motor and housing.

How to Remove the Blades to Clean Ceiling Fans

Things You’ll Need

  • Screwdriver
  • Ladder or step stool

Ceiling fans provide an affordable way to circulate and cool the air in your home. These appliances use less electricity than high-powered air conditioning units, and normally can be set on multiple speed settings, and reversible blade rotation direction. The blades of a ceiling fan become extremely dirty and covered with dust during everyday use. Properly cleaning and removing this layer of dust is essential for the fan to maintain proper balance. Without cleaning the blades, the fan may start to wobble excessively and create stress on the fan motor.

Step 1

Turn the ceiling fan off and allow the rotation of the blades to come to a complete stop. You may want to flip off the breaker switch that runs power to the room where the ceiling fan is located for added security.

Step 2

Locate the screws on the blade bracket that secures them to the motor. There should be two or three screws holding them in place. Identify the type of screwdriver you’ll need to remove the screws on your model of ceiling fan. Usually this is a Phillips-head screw.

Step 3

Hold the blade in place with your hand and unscrew the blade from the motor. You may want to place a piece of tape marking the blade position if you think that you might not remember the correct blade placement.


Consult your ceiling fan owner’s manual for proper cleaning procedures.


Always ensure that the fan is off before attempting to clean the blades.

How to Replace NuTone Bathroom Fan Motor


Things You’ll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Straight-blade screwdriver

A NuTone bathroom fan uses a removable motor to draw air from its intake louver and expel the air out its exhaust port. NuTone offers ducted and ductless fan models. A NuTone ducted fan pushes air through the exhaust port into a duct run that terminates outdoors and a NuTone ductless fan’s exhaust port returns the air to the bathroom. NuTone’s bathroom fan models include fan-only and fan/light combination units. A NuTone bathroom fan connects to a standard residential 120-volt power supply.

Step 1

Turn off the bathroom’s circuit breaker.

Step 2

Grip the sides of the NuTone bathroom fan’s louver and pull down until the louver’s metal springs open. Squeeze the metal springs and pull down on the louver. This releases the louver from the fan’s housing. Set the louver aside.

Step 3

Remove the finger-tight wing nut holding a NuTone fan/light combination unit’s reflector shield to the fan housing, if equipped. Fan-only units do not use a reflector shield. Lower the reflector shield and pull the light’s plug from its receptacle. The receptacle mounts to a NuTone fan’s housing. Set the shield aside.

Step 4

Pull the fan’s plug from its receptacle, found on the NuTone fan’s housing. Fan-only units contain one receptacle and fan/light units have two receptacles.

Step 5

Remove the fan blower assembly from the Nutone fan housing. If the housing uses a screw to hold the blower assembly in place, remove the screw with a Phillips screwdriver and lower the blower assembly. If the fan assembly uses a locking tab to hold the blower assembly in place, lift up on the assembly and slip a straight-blade screwdriver into the slot on the side of the assembly. Twist the screwdriver’s handle and pull down on the blower assembly.

Step 6

Choose the new motor’s assembly plate that matches the original motor’s assembly plate. NuTone replacement motors come from the factory with two differently sized assembly plates.

Step 7

Set the new motor’s wheel on a solid surface with the fan motor facing up.

Step 8

Align the slot on the correct assembly plate with the fan motor’s mounting bracket and set the assembly plate onto the fan motor. The fan motor’s two threaded studs slide through the two holes near the center of the assembly plate. The specification label on the assembly plate should face up.

Step 9

Spin the NuTone fan motor’s locking nuts onto the threaded studs. Tighten the locking nuts against the assembly plate with the manufacturer-supplied wrench.

Step 10

Route the fan motor’s wire through the hole in the assembly plate.

Step 11

Position the new fan motor assembly under the fan housing with the motor’s wheel facing up. Rotate the assembly plate until the side with two tabs meets with the side of the housing with two slots. Press the fan motor assembly into the fan housing. Either snap the assembly plate’s single locking tab — the tab that the straight-blade screwdriver turned during disassembly — into place or insert the locking screw into its hole and tighten the screw with the Phillips screwdriver.

Step 12

Insert the fan motor’s electrical plug into the NuTone fan’s receptacle.

Step 13

Insert the light’s plug into the remaining receptacle, if equipped. Hold the reflector shield against the fan assembly and finger-tighten the wing nut. Do not over-tighten the wing nut.

Step 14

Aperte as molas de metal da veneziana e deslize as extremidades das molas nas ranhuras na lateral da carcaça do ventilador NuTone. Solte as molas. Empurre a veneziana contra o teto.
