Cleaning the fan

Just wondering if there is any specific way to clean the fan above the laser?

i noticed it has a lot of MDF dust in it, which cannot be good long term.

dont want to just dive in without checking first, so any suggestions on the best way to clean it would be appreciated.

I would like to know about this as well. I hope I can point my vacuum cleaner to it

We normally use some low pressure compressed air. It must not be high pressure as it could damage the fan blades.

Another method is to use a cotton swab or q-tip to gently clean the fan blades then a blower to remove the dust.

Using a vacuum cleaner directly in the fan will cause it to over spin and shatter the blades.
