The screen on my Fantastic Fan is dirty and looks rusty. Can it be taken out and cleaned or do I order a new one? Can anybody tell me how to get it out?

It has plastic clips on it.  Look at it.  I remove and clean mine periodically.  Be gentle.

Thanks Mike! From the outside or inside?

From the inside.. If you look close, somewhere around the trim/rim of the screen, there is a raised spot to slide the tip of your finger under. Just pull straight down. It's kind of "creepy I am going to break it" feeling the first time, but once you get it out the first time, you will be comfortable with doing it.

+1 inside.  Put it back in starting opposite the spot Furpod is talking about and press.

I don't do that it is an electric motor.  Only real issue I ever had was the switch that tells fan vent open/closed stuck once.  The fan didn't come on when I opened vent.

I cleaned the fan. Not easy, It was really grimy. I see what you meant thinking the thing would break..I solved that problem by releasing the little clips from up top, prying them lightly inward with a screwdriver. I've had the R-pod sitting in the drive for a long time with the fan running 24/7. From now I'm going to turn it off and close it overnight. I got a couple other fans in there which I run all the time. A friend told me about a product today you can get at Lowes. It's a bag you hang up, it's got some kind of black granuals that attract water and the bag fills up. I'm gonna check it out.
