New Base for the Aloha Breeze 84001 Tower Fan with Remote Control

In the process of Cooling the Living Space, I've bought a larger tower fan for the opening slit in my patio door. This would help me cool the house at night without using the air conditioner. The problem with the Aloha Breeze 84001 Tower Fan that I bought is that it came with a huge stand (see photo below). With this huge base, I can't put the fan in the patio door opening to force cooler air into the house. But I have an idea to make a new smaller base.

I have a lot of CD spindle case sitting around. I figured I could use one to make a new stand for this tower fan. I took a CD spindle case cover and placed it on the bottom of the tower fan. Then I lined it up and marked the screw hole (see photo below). Next I drill the two hole to the right screw size for the fan.

The CD spindle case cover screws onto the fan just fine. But it's too soft. The two screw mount on the bottom of the fan is raised, causing the tower fan to topple over. The solution is to glue a few washers to the CD spindle case cover to act as spacers (see photo below).

This solution works pretty well, as you can see in the photo below, the tower fan now stands on its own with a much smaller base. Now the fan could fit in the patio door opening without a problem. No modifications were made to the fan itself. Therefore, the large base can still be mounted and used when necessary.

Any idea of where I can find a soft-copy of the Aloha Breeze 84001 user guide? I bought a used one from craigslist and it did not come with the guide. I want to know what the two different modes provide (one looks like a night-time mode of some-sort).

Here is the Aloha Breeze Mdl 84001's Operation Manual. It is the scanned copy of the two-page construction instruction, basic wiring diagram, and operating instructions.

Thanks for including the manual. I'm looking for instructions on how to clean the fan. A friend of mine gave me one that is dirty. I tried to open the tower but no luck. Your manual doesn't show the first page (blank page). Does it talk about how to clean it??? If not, how do you clean it besides wiping every little square?
Thank you for posting the manual.

You should contact the manufacturer. This is a public forum. Its unlikely that any manufacturer representative will see your request here.

Where could I buy a part joining the tower fan with base in Calgary, any store, or warehouse, and if possible with screws, I believe M5 x12 mm. It is Aloha Breeze, Tower Fan, model FZ25-50D, (84001). Thank you for your help and advice.

I couldn't find the disassembly instructions either, so I fiddled around with a unit I have until I figured it out. Here's how it goes. The body has two halves, one on the discharge side and one on the intake side. It is the one on the intake side that you can remove. Use a knife; a pocket knife works well. Find a button-like cover near the base of the unit, on the main half-cover on the intake side. Pry that up; you see a screw (actually it turns out to be a bolt) at the bottom of a well that is exposed. Remove that bolt. Remove the two bolts near the top of the unit, also on the intake side. The half-covers are still sticking to each other in the middle, because there are plastic tabs holding them there. Pry on those with your knife to make them turn loose. There is also a tab connection where the half-cover goes under the top end cap, where the controls are. (Did you remember to unplug the power? Do so if you forgot it!) You may need to push in with a flat bladed screwdriver to release the half-cover from the end cap. Or you may be able to angle it out, lifting from the base end.

Once you have removed the intake-side half-cover, the rotor is exposed. I used ear swabs (like "Q-tips", but it doesn't have to be that brand) to loosen the dust that was coating the inside of each blade. I vacuumed as much of the loosened dust as I could with my vac. I also came back and cleaned some of the areas better with ear swabs I had dipped in alcohol, particularly near the motor end of the rotor and between the rotor and the motor.

At this point you can see the two screws that would let you free the top bearing bracket from the front cover, and the five screws that would let you free the motor assembly from the front cover (one of them is at the center under the motor). However, I think that for the extra cleaning that would let you do, it is probably not worth the trouble.

Here is how I cleaned the Aloha 30" Remote Control Tower Fan. Be Sure to unplug the unit before starting this. I took the screw out at the base of the back of the fan. Then took out the two screws at the top of the back of the fan. Then that allowed me to eventually pry the back of the fan off. I removed the two screws from the gold colored plate located at the top of the inside of the unit then there is another screw that holds the blade unit (black cylinder) to the base just above the rotor unit), unscrew it. This will allow you to remove the black blade unit from the base. I then took it to my sink and ran hot water through it which did not take me long to get all the dust and dirt rinsed off of it. Then I too my vacuum cleaner with the brush attachment and vacuumed the back vented piece to get all the dust off of it. I wiped everything with an anti-bacterial wipe to remove all the dust from the rotor and the inside of the rest of the unit. Then I just re-assembled the entire unit by reversing what it took to get it apart.
