Try putting some insulation of some sort between the ceiling and the fan frame.

Testimonial: "David, yes thanks, going to explore that. I have already attempted to isolate (watching the fan running) back in place...no clue the first time."

I'm trying to remove the housing by the ceiling on a Hampton Bay ceiling fan.


on most fans the housing at the ceiling is there to conceal the fan mount
it is normally held in place by a screw or clamp
undoing that screw or clamp will allow the housing to move down the pole to get to the mount
to remove that housing it will be necessary to remove the wires , the mount from the tube and then pull the housing up off the tube
can you explain why you want to remove the housing as it is only a decorative piece to finish the mounting of the fan

Which way does a ceiling fan need to run in winter


Usually most peopledont want drafts on them in winter so making the fan turn with the edge thats turned down then that is the leading edge

IE say you look at the blade from the bottom
next note the blades are tilted you have to determine which way your blades are mounted. The fans may all be the same or some odd ones may be out there.
say looking up at a blade thTAs 12:00 from you
if the edge thats closer to the floor is on the left the fan turns left from 12:00 or Counter-clock wise to make the air blow toward the ceiling away from you. Reverse for cooling so the air blows on you.
This makes the air move upward.
If your ckoser edge is on the opposite side the fan turns opposite..
the edge thats turned down toward you is the direction of travel for winter
In small rooms with larger fan the air may make such a quick change that it feels like it blows on you in either direction.

Dell 5100mp projector fan is quiet when doing presentations on table top, but makes noise when ceiling mounted for home theatre. Noise get better after 20-30 minutes, but is just as noisy next time i...


turn it on when sitting on a table right side up. If possible, take the cover off and support carefully nearby the unit. Then slowly rotate the unit upside down and notice when the noise starts to get worse. Have a look at the fan area and see if there is anything that's causing the fan to make a worse noise. perhaps the bearings are getting worn out or something's not as titgh and vibration is being amplified by the fan unit.

a celing fan should only be mounted on a box rated for a ceiling fan. This is a NEC code requirement. You could remove your existing box, and install a new box rated for a ceiling fan. You install the adjustable cross bar, and then attach the box to it. It also has stronger threaded inserts for the fan attaching bolts. Better than having a fan flying through the room.

I want to install a ceiling fan. My ceiling is 80 year old lathe and plaster design. Will the vibration from fan movement cause my ceiling to crack?


mcdevito75 here, Hopefully your ceiling fan will go where there has been an already light fixture, if so, that light fixture shoud be mounted to the ceiling beam, and your new fan will be mounted the same way. If by chance your new ceiling fan is being mounted where nothing was ever mounted you"ll have to make sure the ceiling fan will mount to a beam, they are every 16 inches apart. This way you:"ll know that vibration from the fan won"t hurt anything.

REMOVAL FROM CEILING


In general, the steps are:

1. Turn off power at the breaker -- not just the light switch.
(There are still "hot" wires in the junction box when "Off".)

2. Take out any light bulbs.

3. Remove any light globes. Some screw in, but most are held by springs so just pull gently with a bit of force.

4. Remove fan blades. Most have a spring at the inside edge of the blade -- press down on the spring and push the blade toward the fan motor.

5. Remove the ceiling mount cover. There is usually a circular ring up next to the ceiling; just twist it off with your hands ("lefty - loosy, righty-tighty").

6. Unscrew the ceiling mount screws. Usually there is one or two in a "simple" hole, and two one "sliding" slots. Take out the "simple" screws, and loosen (but don't remove) the "sliding" screws. Be careful not to drop screws or washers into the fan motor.

7. Twist off the ceiling mount cover to expose the wiring.

8. Disconnect all wires. For safety, put a wire nut on the wires from the ceiling.

9. Tip the fan and remove it from the ceiling mount. Keep in mind that the fan is pretty heavy, and you're on a ladder!

NOTE: Be careful not to put any pressure on any of the blade holders, especially if you intend to re-use the fan. If you do, the blades will wobble.

10. If you're installing a new fan, you can probably re-use the mount. If you want to put up a simple light fixture, remove the mount by unscrewing the two long screws holding it to the junction box.

Light does not come on in the ceiling fan


"from the ceiling fan we have black, blue, and white. On the mounting bracket is green. We installed black and blue from the fan motor to the black in the ceiling."

If your fan is working and the light isn't and they are tied to the same wire (black wire), then you might have a bad pull chain switch or bulb.

My Nutone 8814R motor went out on my ceiling fan and i just ordered a new motor. My question is how do i take out the old one and replace it with the new one. Will it be easy to do myself? Also is there an...


The good news is that this is a relatively easy item to remove and replace, as they make a replacement fan/motor unit (sub assembly) that you can swap out for the old one.

All you need to do is pull down on the trim vent plate and then squeeze the wire retainer clips together to remove the grill/trim.

Once you've done that, you can unplug the fan portion of the exhaust fan unit from the base enclosure. Now simply remove the screw or nut that holds the fan and mounting plate into the enclosure and simply pull it down and pivot it out of the enclosure - you might have to push in on the side of the enclosure where you removed the screw/nut to get the fan and metal plate out of the cabinet.

The replacement fans usually come with a new metal mounting plate that fits many of the older exhaust fans, but if your's looks different or doesn't work, you can remove the fan and install just the fan motore onto your old metal fan mounting plate.

Instructions are typically included in the replacement unit packages. This is also very simple to do with only 2 screws holding the fan onto the mounting plate.

Once you're done, simply hook the edge of the plate back into the fan enclosure and then push it up and fasten the mounting screw/nut onto the plate and plug the fan into the ceiling enclosure and replace the grill plate and you're all set!

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Removing the ceiling mount from the ceiling of a hampton ceiling


Sometimes there is a small trim piece where the canopy meets the ceiling that "snaps" into place and rather than turning to unlock it needs to be gently pryed off. If you have a small trim piece that makes more than about 1/8 of a turn without unlocking. that is definately what you have.
