If yours is the same as the model 04890 that I looked up on the net, you will unscrew the center nut of the light fixture being carefull to not let the fixture drop to the floor. Once you have the center piece off you will be able to unscrew the bulbs and install new ones. Be carefull and be sure power is off before you do this.

I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area
of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get
a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned
counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a
little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose
and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips
right out of the groove.
I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

go to Home Depot, not only do they have replacements, but they can order for you what you need. Hampton Bay is the Home Depot brand.

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.
