Recognise this extractor?

Hi All,

A little basic for this forum but does anybody recognise this extractor? It has stopped working so I am trying to open it up but seems sealed tight!

There is a small hole on the bottom left corner that I thought could be for a clip but seems to just be a hole going right up.... I have a horrible suspicion that the previous owner broke the clip and grouted it in place.

Any advice appreciated

It looks like the cover is caulked and painted in place. Try cutting around the perimeter with a knife and see it it will pull off.

Thanks for your help! Turns out there was a screw at the bottom that had been covered up, then the cover could be popped off. looking at the mess behind I am surprised it lasted as long as it did

A good cleaning and a few drops of oil, it might work fine again.
