Can't find light kit to fit 52" Hampton Bay ceiling fan
I have gone to Home Depot, Lowes, etc. I have googled "light kits" without getting a real good reply. Anyone know where I can find a light kit made specifically for the fan? The diameter where the kit would be installed is between 4" to 5". Otherwise I would have to buy a new fan with lights, but that is last resort.

Re: Can't find light kit to fit 52" Hampton Bay ceiling...
I've found that Hampton Bay has it's own light kits, available only from them. The others (generic) aren't the same size. Hampton Bay fans are made exclusively for Home Depot. They are made by a few different manufacturers but only Home Depot sells them. I would have Home Depot customer service get a brochure for you so you can order what you need, if they don't stock it.

There are a bout three screws that hold the light part to the fan.
Make note of the wiring before you disconnect it also.
Remove the screws and the wiring will be exposed as the light part drops down...
Check the diameter of the light parts and find a new light kit that will fit it...
The Hampton Bay fans are exclusive to Home Depot, so most any of their light kits will fit, but any kit the right diameter will work..
Hampton bay is an exclusiove brand of Home Depot. Yopu shopuld be able to get a new light kit to fit your fan there or try any lighting store or Lowes. You will need to bring the old one with you to compare the size of the mounting plate and the araingement of the mounting screws to the new kit.
Melanie, you must have gotten a bad batch of bulbs. I have installed over 100 Hampton Bay ceiling fans and I have dropped them from up the ladder and have them bounce across the floor with no damage. I think they must have allowed a substandard batch to go out.
Home Depot is where I buy my replacement bulbs. Hampton Bay make fans exclusively for HD.
You can easily change lighting bases, as the wiring is the same for all Hampton Bay. You may even appeal to Hampton Bay on the internet and they might send you the kits. But I don't think you'd have success in a store.
If you try replacing them with bulbs from another Home Depot you may find them much hardier. I wish you the best of luck, and if you need additional help please write back.
