I just bought a condo and wanted to clean or replace the motor, but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get the motor down from the ceiling. I removed the 3 screws holding the motor and twisted it off, but the fan blades won't fit through the hole. Ignore the green arrows, but I see the metal lip on the right side of the picture. I've tried pulling and pushing up on the opposite(left) side but cannot seem to get this loose.
I then unscrewed the cover over the plug to show the wiring and am wondering if I need to remove the cables and conduit in order to remove it? I really appreciate any help as I have been stumped on this for so long and all the videos and pics I can find on the internet are metal and don't match this unit.
