Question about Hunter "Lexus" Traditional 52" Ceiling Fan "Black" w/ three Blade Choices

1 Answer

Access for disassembly

I want to remove the ceiling fan in order to paint the ceiling. A vanity ring, which is covering the mounting screws does not want to come off.

I can't imagine going after it with a screw driver.

What is the secret?

The fan came with the house and I cannot swear to the model being a traditional. The construction at the ceiling appears to have a similar ring.

The vanity ring usuallu comes off one of two ways.

It may be held on with 1 or 2 small screws.When you loosen the screws you can turn the ring a little bit and it comes off. Sometimes you have to remove the screws and the ring will come off.

The 2nd method requires turning the ring counterclockwise and it comes off. If this is the way yours comes off, you can usually see 2 dimples on the top of the ring that fit into matching slots.

I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan model AC 552 s/n 000934 I need to know how to take it down, there is no visible screws to loosen for disassembly. Can you guide me to a schematic showing disassembly

Sometimes the trim ring rotates 1/4 of a turn then comes down to expose screws. If you could send me a picture of it I can explain better

I need to remove my hunter louden flush mount ceiling fan. There are no screws.

Good choice getting rid of that fan. The housing probably twist off. Could also have a ring at top next to ceiling that covers the screws at top. Just twist & pull down.

How do you remove the casing that is attached to the ceiling

The canopy that is attached to the ceiling is removed by the four screws in the side of it (right up against the ceiling. Often there is a plastic trim ring around these screws that must be removed first. This either twists an 1/8 of a turn and then comes off OR you just pull it down and off. Then you can access the four screws, normally you only need to take out two of the screws and the other two just need to be loosened. I have made a crude drawing using paint and will upload it to give you a better idea. There is another possibility too, which there are two screws in the underside of the canopy. These can also be hidden by a trim plate, these trim plates always twist a bit and then come off. In my experience with fans, which is pretty substantial, this would be the two ways most of them come off the ceiling.jeffmch.jpg

In general, the steps are:

1. Turn off power at the breaker -- not just the light switch.
(There are still "hot" wires in the junction box when "Off".)

2. Take out any light bulbs.

3. Remove any light globes. Some screw in, but most are held by springs so just pull gently with a bit of force.

4. Remove fan blades. Most have a spring at the inside edge of the blade -- press down on the spring and push the blade toward the fan motor.

5. Remove the ceiling mount cover. There is usually a circular ring up next to the ceiling; just twist it off with your hands ("lefty - loosy, righty-tighty").

6. Unscrew the ceiling mount screws. Usually there is one or two in a "simple" hole, and two one "sliding" slots. Take out the "simple" screws, and loosen (but don't remove) the "sliding" screws. Be careful not to drop screws or washers into the fan motor.

7. Twist off the ceiling mount cover to expose the wiring.

8. Disconnect all wires. For safety, put a wire nut on the wires from the ceiling.

9. Tip the fan and remove it from the ceiling mount. Keep in mind that the fan is pretty heavy, and you're on a ladder!

NOTE: Be careful not to put any pressure on any of the blade holders, especially if you intend to re-use the fan. If you do, the blades will wobble.

10. If you're installing a new fan, you can probably re-use the mount. If you want to put up a simple light fixture, remove the mount by unscrewing the two long screws holding it to the junction box.

I can't find any mounting screws or bolts on the ceiling fan motor assembly. How do I remove it from the ceiling?

Yopu first need to drop the canopy co0ver from the ceiling mount. The cover may have screws at the very top edge. It may have screws at the bottom plate. It may have a decorative plastic ring at the very top that is conceling the mounting screws. You should be able to twist the plastic ring in an unscrewing motion and pull down to remove it.

Cannot remove casing around ceiling. Hampton Bay

Try twisting the bezel (cover) counterclockwise to unlock it from the mounting base plate on the ceiling. The other option is to see if the bezel/cowl has fasters (screws) holding it in place either from the sides near the top edge or at the bottom nearest the narrow portion of the cover.

Sometimes the fan cowl bezel is fastened using screws at the point nearest the motor shaft.

There could also be a trim ring that needs to be gently pryed off from the edge nearest the ceiling, so you can gain access to the screws that are holding the cowl in place on the mounting plate. There are usually 2 sets of 2 screws placed 180 degees apart from each other that secure the cowl in place.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Neither the fan or light is working?

Twist to the left the ring that meets the ceiling. The ring will then slide down, which will expose 4 screws. Two of the screws are in place to prevent the fan from inadvertently coming off of the guide. Take those two out, and then loosen the other two. Twist the fan motor to the left, and the motor and fan should drop down, exposing all wires. CAUTION: ENSURE THAT THE CIRCUIT IS OFF BEFORE WORKING WITH THE WIRING. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH!!
