unplug the fan!
1 remove the six screws that hold the front grille on.
2 use an allen wrench to loosen the screw that secures the fan blade assembly to the motor shaft. (screw is between the blades and the motor and it is on tight, make sure that you do not bend the fan blades, this would cause balance problems)
3 remove blade
4 you will now have access to the screws that hold the motor cover in place.
5. when reassembling make sure that the strain relief (or knot in the cord on some models) is inside the motor cover, and that wires are not being pinched.
6. Good luck

The grill is in two halves with the back half attached to the motor. The front with the round patton insignia removes easily by applying leverage with a screwdriver. There are eight spots (at least on mine) where it clips. Be sure to remove any disposable plastic fastener holding the two halves together. Its pretty easy.

mcdevito75 here, If the fan is not too old I would figure yes, but a replacement motor will cost as a new fan, if not more, then you have to install and the blades are a presss fit to the motor.

SOURCE: Patton 1887 fan blades wont turn
I've had an 1887 since the 90s -- great fan. I have to say that FixinFax (Solution 1 above) probably didn't try to take his unit apart. My blade has stopped rotating several times over the years and I always got it going again by myself. I'm no whiz, just your average amateur handyman. In fact I am fixing the motherbleeper right now because in a week where the heat is 100 degrees it chose to slow down and stop.
Eventually it sucks enough dust into the axle housing so you have to take the motor mechanism apart and clean it. It's not terribly complicated, but you have to note how the electrical and mechanical parts go back together before disassembling. It's a little tricky to get all the housing parts to line up level again, you may have to try a couple times till the blade rotates freely. Wipe out all the dust and gunk buildup. Lubricate the axle with oil, or I just spray with WD-40. Then reassemble.
The only thing I have had to replace is the on-off knob, since it's plastic and it split. Just get a universal knob from your local hardware store.
