[tweetmeme source=”ibethyap”] They say there’s a first time for everything and I indeed experience one recently. I’ve assembled my first stand fan. While cleaning up in our new house, Kalvin brought a stand fan box that he intended to set up. He asked if I knew how, I didn’t. He said, it’s time you learn. Being a fan of assembling things and figuring out how things work, I enjoyed setting up the fan.
Since it was absolutely my first time, I have to rely on the instructions and picture guide. It was not enough, so I’ve decided to share my learning experience in setting up my first stand fan.
There are four parts in a stand fan (as per packaged). Please note that the blades are detachable. To name the four parts from left to right (1) Blades and cover (2) Stand (3) Base (4) Motor. The naming convention of course is not the normal way to call them. Since I’m not familiar with the real name of the parts. I’ll be using these names as I instruct on how to assemble the fan.
Step 1: Flip the base and remove the screws.
Step 2: Lift the plastic portion in the stand. Align the stand with the base and screw it firmly. It’s a bit challenging to do this step. Try to secure the base and the stand position. It would help if you would screw in X order. So that, somehow the stand is already affixed. After fixing the screw, secure the plastic to the base to cover the screws.
Step 3: Pull the silver tube in the base, you would need it in order to attach the motor to the stand. If you won’t pull the silver tube, you won’t be able to fit the motor. It’s a bit tough to pull the tube. Initially, I was having a hard time figuring out how to fit the motor to the stand. This stand would also help adjust the height of the fan. You can pull it up if you want it to be higher and push down if you want it to be lower. After knowing the desired height, secure the position by turning the knob tightly. This would be the lock.
Step 4: Attach the motor to the stand and lock the motor by turning the knob in the motor. Unscrew the 2 locks in front, so that you would be able to place the cover and the blades in order and secure it properly with the locks. The order would be from the motor, we would have the back cover, after which a lock, the blades, another lock and then the front cover. Ensure to secure the locks of the front cover firmly. The back cover would have holes for you to fit comfortably in the motor.
After following the steps… Tada, here’s your stand fan. 🙂
