The rear cage is bent - - how does the blade come off?

A fair number of these type fans have "friction" fit blade sets.  Push on, pull off style.

THE FRONT AND BACK OF THE CAGE SEPERATE LIKE TWO CYMBALS... THE BLADE IS HELD ON WITH A PLASTIC NUT AT THE HUB AND SO IS THE REAR GRILLE WITH A RING NUT...ALSO PLASTIC. I HAVE A SIMILAR FAN IN MY KITCHEN IN BLUE LABELED "FRIGID" AND WITH THE 3 WIRE CORD AND OSHA GRILLE
I LOVE IT IN GREEN TOO!

These fans are made by Sanyo, just like all of the other Lasko/Galaxy products from this era. Like Tom said, there is a plastic nut typically either in a dark grey or black color on the front of the blade that unscrews. The cap should actually have arrows that tell you which way it tightens and which way it loosens. After you unthread that cap, the blade should slide right off the shaft.

As for oiling/lubrication, that is a whole different procedure. I did a write-up on this but it's pretty involved and the motor has to come apart. I will post it in the Post-1950 section soon.

As I recall, I think most of the caps that hold the blades on are reverse thread. So if there are no arrows on that hub as Rob described, don't put too much muscle into trying to loosen it the traditional way. You may end up making it even more tight.
