    Answer: 
    In order to clean the model 696, the grille, lens, bulb and reflector should be removed. This will expose the fan and heat units. In most cases, a gentle cleaning, with a vacuum will be adequate. If this is not enough, both the fan and heat assemblies can be removed and taken down from the unit. Please see the detailed cleaning instructions for both, in the installation instructions, which are available on our website.

    Answer: 
    Thank you for your question on the model 657. You can remove the grille assembly by first removing the lens from the grille. The plastic lens just snaps in. Remove the nut, above the bulb and it will come down from the ceiling.

    I am trying to replace a ceiling fan installed by previous owner, about 20 years ago--not sure whether it is 655, 657, 656, or 658. Owner left installation instructions for all 4 models. I can't tell which model number it is (the model number is not visible). How can I tell whether it is simply a fan/light combination, or a fan/heater/light combination?

    Answer: 
    The model number should be stamped inside the metal can or housing in the ceiling. It should be visible once you remove the grille. If it is not, please contact our Technical Service Department at 800-637-1453 for assistance in identifying which product you have.
