And do you have any idea of value, runs good, just doesn't look so good now. Need to shine the metal and polish plastic. It has one small crack on the top.

Hi Norma

The best way to clean these floor fans is using a vacuum cleaner or by blowing compressed air into it to help dislodge any dust, etc.If you do need to disassemble the fan, then you will need to remove all of the screws holding the protective surround in place.these were a great fan in their day, very efficient and reliable, however I am surprised that the motor is still going in it - over time, the motor will wear out. As a value guide, you could expect to get between $10-50 depending on its condition.Pete.
