How do I clean my fan? Seriously, I read the manual that came with it, and the manual is lying.

We have two Honeywell Dual Action Air Circulators
(HT-9700). They are teh awesome. However, they're pretty dirty inside and need to be cleaned.
I read the manual. Of course the manual that came with it was not for the model that we have. It said something about screws in the back. Well, there are no screws in the back of the grills of either fan.
I tried prying the thing off, but that was just going to break it, so I stopped.
I know I could vacuum some of the gunk out and use canned air too, but Philly dirt is greasy, and it really needs to be wiped off inside. How do I get the freaking grills off?!?!?!?!
I am so embarassed to be asking this.
