You have to unscrew the small openings on top of the housing where the motor is to access the small nightlight bulbs.

To access the single bulb in the lower globe housing, partially unscrew the three screws holding the globe onto the fan (the ones that have extended slots on their holes), then remove the fourth screw, and rotate the globe so that the vertical slots in the screw holes line up with the screws and the globe can be lowered. It will hang from a safety cable, although that can be disengaged from the hook to remove the globe for cleaning.

To access the lights in the top globe, you will need to unscrew the covers, which are much smaller than one might expect because the bulbs themselves are tiny - night light sized, albeit they are 15w versus 4w or 7w for the typical night light. There are four covers that are about 1.5"x4.5" that are curved around the circumference of the top of the fan motor housing. Each cover also has three circular, 1/2" wire-mesh covered ventilation cut-outs on it. Unscrew the two Phillips head screws on either end of the cover, lift the end that pops up and slide away from the other end, which has tabs locking it into the motor housing. The bulb socket is attached to the cover.

The Miramar is woefully under-illuminated for a large fan designed for a large room - the total 120w is far too low for anything other than accent lighting in our 23'x18' great room. The 60w lower globe bulb is the highest wattage bulb available in the rare intermediate (refrigerator light) size and Home Depot does not even carry those any more, with a 40w bulb being their highest wattage in the size. Try a specialty lighting store or Amazon for 60w bulbs. I was able to find some 25w bulbs from a specialty lighting store that would fit the upper globe housing and still stay under the manufacturer's 190w maximum total for the unit (60 + 4x25w). They take the same socket as the night light bulbs but are maybe 50% longer and are somewhat difficult to fit into the small light opening - it takes a bit of experimenting with angles to lower it in through the opening. On one of the sockets, the electrical cord was too tight to move the socket far enough back to give sufficient room to fit in the longer 25w bulb, so I used a diagonal/wire cutter to snip the plastic zip-tie (NOT the wire itself) that was binding a loop in the electrical wire to free up the wire so I could lift up the cover and socket enough to angle the bulb downward into the cover opening.

My Hampton Bay ceiling fan has been making a sound - like a clicking noise - during every revolution of the fan, and at each of the 3 different speeds ever since it was installed.

Try a bit of chewing gum on each of the blades separately, it seems to be out of balance.By trying each individually and turning on each time you should find the imbalance.Cheers Michael....Australia

I have a Hampton Bay Miramar 60 in ceiling fan, when you try to turn it on the upper light just blinks and nothing else happens. You can't even turn the blinking light off. HELP!!!

Turn off the breaker that controls power to the fan. Remove the batteries from the remote and press the buttons in case one is stuck. Reinstall batteries or new ones. Turn on the fan breaker and try using the remote again

We have a hampton bay ceiling fan model 54cvt. We cant figure out how to change the light bulb or change the direction of the blades. We dont have a manual for the fan.

This fan is also known as the Hampton Bay Covington 54 Ceiling Fan. You need to turn the globe anti clockwise until it comes out. The full instruction manual can be found here.
If you have another fan model other than the Hampton Bay 54CVT then try here

Light kit has light bulb size that I cannot find bulbs for

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.

Me too. I went back to Home Depot. They gave to me the phone number for Hampton Bay - 1-877-527-0313. I will call them tomorrow after they open to see what the deal is. it looks to me like the JDE11 is a mini-candelabra base. The lady in the fans at Home Depot said that all of the light kits were changing to the smaller based halogen lights. BUT, you'd think that they'd carry the light bulbs that have to go in the light kits they sell!!!

those bulbs are candelabra type. if they came with the fixture then I wouldn't go to a higher wattage bulb. the sockets are probably bakelite and mounted with the base up so any heat off the lamps would be directed upwards. higher wattage bulbs may shorten the lifespan of the sockets. bakelite is a modified plastic. it won't melt but it will get brittle.
