...but I can't figure out how to open it up. Any tips on how to get the cage off so I can clean the (very dirty) blades? Any other suggestions very welcome.  Thank you!

I believe the cage on your fan is friction fitted on and just pulls off as it appears that there are several "tabs" that go into the housing from the cage, usually just a quick forceful yank should remove the cage off the front of your fan.

Looks a lot like my Frigid except mine has a plastic cage. But it comes off as Levi stated...there are 4 pins press fit into the holes. With mine I had to be really careful b/c it was plastic...I did end up having to re-glue one pin anyhow despite being very careful.

I'd try taking a flat bladed screwdriver and sticking it in near each of those pins and twisting. You should be able to work each pin out that way carefully until they are loose enough to pull the cage off.
