I started cleaning my 1950 Pyrene Kitchen Blow Fan. The cover came off easily and I got it pretty grease free while taking off some of the chrome finish. How do I clean the fan and the box? Or should I have it done professionally? The box is covered in grease fuzzies. I am a little leery about doing it my self because I read something about having to oil to the motor.
If I try to find someone to clean it how would I go about finding them?

Thank you in advance!

You can have a handy person do it for you. WD40 will cut grease, but yes the fan needs oiling and the whole motor and blade unit comes out.... this is a good unit, but the person can check the wire plug too.... good luck with it!

Thank you,
Is there a way I can fix the chrome finish? Or should I just scrape it all off?
