Question about Westinghouse Turbo Swirl 78145 Ceiling Fan
We are building a house... the electrician my builder hired installed three of these cute fans, but told me the reason the lights don't work is because I didn't provide the correct bulbs --- well, I can't even figure out how to remove the globe - this design is horrible. On one, I took the screws out, couldn't figure out how to get inside the globe so now the light portion is dangling from the fan and I am about ready to just give up on it and buy a different fan, just to save myself the added aggravation. Any ideas?
You simply twist and tug the globe (firmly but easily) and find that it is held on by three "tension clips" that hold the thing in place.
If you are nervous, have someone else get on the other side of the ladder and hold the fan steady while you twist/tug the globe with two hands.
I did it by myself but I would have liked another pair of hands holding the fan steady while I gently but firmly tugged at the globe.
It's a bit of a drill to get the thing back on. You have to get all three clips inside the globe and sort of slap the thing back into place. It won't come off easily; so be prepared to do some firm yet gentle and steady tugging.

I found on mine that the bulb is held in with 3 tenshion clips. You just have to pull the globe down slowly to gain access to the light bulb.

The metal bell part holds all the wiring in place. the globe fastens by two thumb screws 120 degrees apart with an internal hook at the other 120 degree point. unscrew the screws and tilt out the globe. replacement bulbs should be no more than 60 watts.
