Question about Hampton Bay (261025) Dual Mount Ceiling Fan

Open Question

Changing the light bulbs that have burned out

Find that there is no way to get access to the housing to replace the bulb on my ceiling fan.

There are four snap type clips and I can get three of them in place. I cannot get the last one in place, and now the globe casing is being held up by only three sets of clips.

Am finding it is very difficult to replace the burned out light bulbs inside the globe.

HELP. Is there some easier way to do this?

    I believe I may have the same problem. It doesn't name a manufacturer on the ceiling fan but it does show "Listed Fan E106510" which when googled came up as Hampton Bay. I can't change the bulb because there doesn't seem to be anyway to open the cover or the mounting. I have tried everything I can think of in order to replace the bulb. I'd appreciate any assistance if anyone has a solution to this. Thanx.

SOURCE: Changing light bulb in ceiling fan

At the top of the pull chain there is a metal piece; this is threaded on a bolt. Unscrew the metal piece and lower the globe to expose the bulbs then remove and replace the bulb(s). I recommend flourescents as they are more economical, run cooler and last linger than incandescents (regular bulbs).

SOURCE: Hampton Bay Covington 54" Ceiling Fan Light Does Not Come On

Try taking the lighting kit completely off it make sure the blue wire and white wire are both firmly connected.

Does the remote work on the fan part ok? Do you have the black, white, and green wire on the house side connected to the side of the receiver with the same wires?

You know the black and blue are hot for the fan and lights (blue for lights). If the wiring connections are ok it had to be either in the remote or receiver. Are the dip switches set for the same on each?

Why will the lights no longer come on, on my ceiling fan, when the fan works fine & everything else is fine? What happened?


you get a slight shock suggests that you have a major wiring problem
at some point the installing electrician has used a ground wire as a neutral wire and there is live feed back that should not be occurring
Get in an accredited professional electrical inspector to run a full scan and test on the house wiring and then go from there

Minka Aire Como F603 - Light bulb burned out


I found the Manual to the F603 in pdf format at: http://minkagroup.net/Admin/UploadFiles/F603-English.pdf It describes how to put bulbs in so it was simply a matter of reversing the instructions to get the old ones out. However, it is not that easy to get the bottom section off so one has to be careful or you will twist the whole unit instead of just the bottom part..... I think what you did was push up too hard and then turn the whole unit. Try pushing up firmly but at the same time hold some fingers (or have someone help in this) on top of the bowl above the fan blades and then twist counterclockwise an inch or two and the bottom part will release (don't let it fall). Then you have easy access to the bulbs. Good luck.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan


I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.

Minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement


The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.
