Re: Fascinations Blue Globe With Silver Base Problem:
Http://www.fascinations.com/contact.htm I tried to look up FAQs or troubleshooting for you or maybe a product manual, but unfortunately the website for the distributor of these globes has a fill in the blank request form and you will need to fill it out yourself.
Hopefully they will have an easy fix for you.

Some globes are held in place by an internal spring clip. If there are no screws around the base of the fixture that can be loosened to remove the globe, this is probably the case. Try to gently, but firmly, remove the globe from the base by pulling down on the globe. Best regards, --W/D--
Hampton Bay assembly information is tough to come by on the internet - except for sales info. As an electrician, I have hung more fans than I can remember, and have never found any that were not secured by either (1) three or more thumb screws, (2) a threaded portion of the glass globe or (3) a "bayonnette" (quick twist) type mount that required little more than an inch or so of twist to remove.
The globe should be removed by either loosening / removing three or more thumb screws that are designed to engage the recess between the globe itself and a lip around the opening; unscrewing the glass globe light a light bulb ; OR by twisting the globe about an inch or so in one direction or the other (like many automotive-type lamps). I suspect the type you have is the latter. From your account of what is happening, it suggests to me that the entire fan / light fixture is twisting on the fan support on the electrical ceiling box when you are trying to twist the globe. The globe and rest of the fixture are moving as one instead of independantly of each other.
If yours is the type that must be twisted from the base, you'll need to prevent the rest of the fixture from twisting at the same time while attempting to remove the globe. This will probably require a second person to help - given that it seems to have become wedged in place, and trying to grip it and balance the globe might be to much to do by yourself. If yours is held in place by thumb screws, no amount of twisting will allow it to be removed.
There should be no "secret" way of accessing the light bulbs, something has happened that is preventing the easy removal of the globe - whether it is corrosion, dirt or some other debris. Make sure you clean it up completely before reassembly.
It appears that you may have an intermittent earth connection between the globe sockets and the vehicle body. First, check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe, squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly, check the earth wire that runs from the globe socket and any connectors in the wiring loom near the Light Assembly as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. Remove, clean and re-attach securely if necessary.
The best and safest way (if you don't have a multimeter) is to use a torch battery, 3 pieces of wire and a torch globe. Attach wires to the centre terminal of the globe, & one to the globe base. Now cut the wire attached to the globe base and insert the torch battery between the cut ends.This creates a test circuit with the torch globe, & battery in series.There are now two wire ends free. To test your circuit, touch the two free wire end together. If you have done this right. the torch globe will light. To use your tester, touch one wire end to a pin on your shaver wall plug, touch the other wire to a hole in the shave end of shaver cable.If the globe does not light, try the other hole. If it still doesn't light, touch your tester wires together to test it's still working ok. Test the cable again, if no light, you have a broken power cable. NOTES: 1. For this operation the razor and cable are NOT CONNECTED to the power outlet 2. Use insulated wire and solder them to the torch globe if you can, otherwise use a cheap globe holder from Tandy
take away the globe from the top magnet, then use your two hands to hold the globe, gradually close to the top magnet, pls note the floating distance is about 2cm, when you feel the balance, release your hands gently, finally, you succeed in floating it well. Congratulations!
Noise? Louder than normal motor noise? The display is created by the revolving LED board that is connected to a motor. It should be quiet unless you pick it up and give a good listen. Let me assume that you mean that it is normal noise, indicating that the unit is turning. Unplug the power as well as the phone lines from the unit. First, remove the plastic globe. There are 4 points that the globe is connected, two towards the rear and two in front on either side of the control buttons. Press the globe at the front ones and lift towards the rear. After you have removed the globe, remove the three screws that hold the rotor (looks like an "L") to the motor shaft. The LED display is soldered to the rotor. These solder joints break and need to be re-soldered. By adding a small amount of heat as you are bending the display slightly inward, you can repair the connections. Only use low watt solder gun! Re-attach the rotor and globe (unit will not spin with globe off) re-connect the power, press the select button and check out the display. If all connections were made, you will have succeeded. If a line or two are missing, try again!
