Question about Hampton Bay 52 In. Brushed Nickel Romano with Integrated Pan Style Light Kit Fan

Open Question

Dim LED PLate

I purchased the Edgemont model 557-268 which has LED. At the time
of viewing other models were all lit so we didnt realize that thie model
would be so dim. We already installed, and not quite sure what to do.
Can we purchase a higher plate?

    I just purchased and installed the edgemont 52 inch fan and have a similar problem. Has anybody solved the problem with the useless light it has?

    Several reviews at the Home Depot website state that there is no other light option for this fan. Also, do not install a remote with this fan. It causes the light to blink every 5 seconds while the fan is on.

    My fan's light output is so poor that I rechecked the installation. Verified that the LED light kit is indeed receiving 24V, so nothing's wrong with its power supply. At that point I went to the Net and found a number of identical comments on this subject. As of today, no good solutions...

can you shut off the breaker and bend the copper center tabs up toward you, sometimes this will do the trick if this is the kind of lamp base your lamp has

Must I replace its 100 watt Sylvania incandescent bulb with another incandescent? What about an equivalent CFL or LED bulb?

Both will work fine as long as the light isn't on a dimmer. You can't dim CFL bulbs.

If you do have a dimmer, you can dim LED bulbs as long is you buy dimmable LED bulbs.

Where can I find a motor for my pedestal fan?

You need to post the make and model. Also realize that the motor could be custom made for that company or by that company and a replacement might not be available or it might cost as much as a new fan.

We need to replace the original remote unit from this fan (Model 9308R) since I wan to use LED bulb and it is not compatible....does not turn off completely and flickers when on. We purchased a universal...

Did you make sure the fan speed switch is set on high? Also, double check the remote wiring to make sure the fan wire is not disconnected. There's no such model # for hunter as 9308R!

I need a replacement motor for a NuTone Model LS-80SE exhaust fan but can't find one.

Home depot usually has a good selection of replacement fans. They usually are a fan on a mounting plate, not just the fan motor itself. Sometimes you have to purchase the entire fan unit just to get the fan motor plate inside for a replacement part.

We just moved into this house and there is a hunter ceiling fan in our bedroom. The 1st night we tried to dim the lights so I could sleep but now the lights refuse to turn off. If you press the button on...

it sounds like the receiver control (located within the fan unit) is faulty. This is a small electronic control module that receives the signle from the remote control transmitter. The receiver can be accessed by removing the light mounting plate that holds the light to the body of the fan. OF COURSE IT DEPENDS ON THE MODEL FAN THAT YOU HAVE, HOWYOU EXACTLY MUST ACCESS THIS RECEIVER CONTOL. I suggest you call the manufacture and explain the situation; they can confirm my suspicion and give you any further thoughts to be sure of the problem, as well as send you a replacement part.

I have the same Hampton Bay Edgemont LED light kit. It is AWFUL to try to see in a room that is lit with less than a night light. I need a brighter light kit to replace this one. Why isn't it available???

That, my friend is a question to ask Hampton Bay.

It is my idea you could increase the light output by putting a different kit on the fan or by using other task lighting solutions.

Why doesn't the manufacturer do something ... maybe they are waing for you to tell them ...

thanks for using

LED light too dim, is there a brigher LED kit?

You need these parts:
- Low profile GU24 socket (Maxlite MLGSIIB)
- GU24 CFL bulb (Progress Lighting MLS13GUSWW6)
- Threaded pipe fitting, nut, washer
- 2 wire nuts

Here is how to fix it for a few bucks. You need a low-profile GU24 socket (Maxlite MLGSIIB), which is readily available in large mail order channels. You also need a GU24 compact fluorescent bulb (Progress Lighting MLS13GUSWW6) that is available through Home Depot mail order or other internet retailers. To my knowledge, these are the only parts that fit into the low-profile glass.
You'll also need a threaded pipe fitting and a proper size nut for attaching the GU24 base to the holder, both readily available at the ceiling fan section in HD. You'll also need a washer underneath the nut to hold the socket in place. Put your MacGyver skills to work.
To change the parts, uninstall the light fixture by unscrewing the glass, then removing three screws that hold the LED plate in place. Disconnect the LED wire connection and a larger white connection behind it. Then remove three more screws that holds the rest of the light fixture up and remove it from the fan.
Once on the desk, remove the back plate wire cover (3 screws) so you have access to the wires. Unscrew and remove the rectangular box (120v-12v converter), you won't be needing it any longer. Cut the black and white wires close to the module - you'll be attaching the GU24 socket wires to those wires.
Remove the LED circuit board from the plate by pinching the plastic standoffs and then pulling them out. Install the GU socket to the larger hole at the center of the plate using a pipe fitting, washer and a nut. Notice that it fits perfectly - it was probably originally designed to use this socket! You may need a washer that is the appropriate size to hold the socket in place. I also used a piece of bent paperclip underneath the washer to hold everything tight.
Remove the white thermal sleeve from the LED module wiring and insert it over the GU24 socket wires just like it was with the LED wire. This is to prevent heat damage to the wires when they touch the metal edges. Using smaller wire nuts, connect the black and white wires to the wires you cut off earlier when removing the 12v module.
Put everything back together, install the light bulb, and enjoy a much brighter light from this beautiful ceiling fan.

Older Model Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan: The Redington II w/Remote Control

Ironically, i am having the same problem with TWO different Reddington's in my house.

One is brand new, just hung a few weeks ago, the other is about 3 years old.

The new one -- the lights are stuck in a constant dim, bright, off, dim bright off, and the fan wont turn at all.

The old one, the lights wont come on and the fan will only spin slow.

Both failed within a day or two of each other, and this is driving me nuts.

I thought it might be the remotes, so I took both remotes and pulled the batteries out of each, but that didnt do anything.

If anyone else is having this problem, please post.
