Question about Dryers
I have the ac 552 Hampton Bay ceiling fan, love the looks but....HELP, the fan only takes intermediate sized bulbs (or candelabra with an adapter)which I can only find with a max of 40 watts, NOT enough light~ also the three globes are opaque and no matter what bulbs I put in, LED, CFL, incandescent, it is like eating, or reading, by candle light with them on or off.

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.

You would be better off getting 3 40watt daylight bulbs.. extreamly bright low cost and wont cause any harm to your fan.. hope this helps :)
