Neither the fan or light is working?

I am trying to remove the ring that covers the ball mount on ceiling and can't remove it. I am doing this to make sure no wires have become disconnected.

Re: Neither the fan or light is working?

Twist to the left the ring that meets the ceiling. The ring will then slide down, which will expose 4 screws. Two of the screws are in place to prevent the fan from inadvertently coming off of the guide. Take those two out, and then loosen the other two. Twist the fan motor to the left, and the motor and fan should drop down, exposing all wires. CAUTION: ENSURE THAT THE CIRCUIT IS OFF BEFORE WORKING WITH THE WIRING. FAILURE TO DO SO MAY RESULT IN INJURY OR DEATH!!

"Ball Ceiling Fan" - hardwired wall switch only turns on or off, no speed control or light control, stuck on "high" and light "on" when switch is in "on" position.

The most likely cause (and the one I've always encountered) is the switch/controller nit wears out from electrical arcing that burns the contacts or temperature kills electronics on "soft" speed controllers

Who made an M52 series ceiling fan? 5 blades, 4 lights

I have a 52" A.C. Ceiling Fan, M52 Series, Fan 82F4, 120V, 60 Hz 1.0A, File No# E143948, TR/HD: 0596, Serial No# 026351-027900, and have had the fan stored for awhile now and it seems I've misplaced/lost, the mounting bracket that fits inside the cover where the stem and ball are located and mounts to the bracket box inside the ceiling. Any ideas of where I can find one so that I don't have to purchase an entire new ceiling fan (again). I've tried 2 ACE Hardware stores, Home Depot and Lowes and no one carries them.

How do you remove a canopy cover from a Hampton Bay fan?

Turn off the circuit breaker supplying power to the ceiling fan. The circuit breaker is in your home electrical box and may control more than just the ceiling fan. Place a stepladder under the Hampton Bay fan.

Remove the light bulbs and light covers from the fixture, if you have a light assembly on your ceiling fan. Remove the screws securing the light assembly housing to the fan with a Phillips screwdriver. Lower the light assembly, and hold it in one hand.

Twist counterclockwise the wire nuts securing the wires for the ceiling fan and light assembly, using your free hand to separate the wires. Lower the light assembly from the fan and set it in a safe place.

Turn the screws securing the fan blades to the unit with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the blades from the fan and set them aside. Find the screws securing the canopy to the ceiling mounting plate. Loosen the screws two complete revolutions. Turn the canopy counterclockwise and unhook it from the screws. Slide the canopy over the fan motor housing and away from the fan.

Ask a helper to hold the fan motor housing if you have a Hampton Bay fan with a down rod. Slide the canopy over the down rod until it rests on top of the motor housing. Disconnect the fan wires from the ceiling wires, twisting the plastic wire caps counterclockwise. Slide the hangar ball, at the top of the down rod, out of the mounting bracket. Slide the canopy over the top of the down rod to remove it from the fan.

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.

Can you describe the mounting bracket for this fan?
If it is a ball mount, then there is a groove in the ball that connects to a tab in the mounting bracket. if the tab is gone or the ball is not sitting down in the bracket so that it is secure , then that is the problem. You may be able to find a replacement brachet in a home depot type store .

I can't find any mounting screws or bolts on the ceiling fan motor assembly. How do I remove it from the ceiling?

Yopu first need to drop the canopy co0ver from the ceiling mount. The cover may have screws at the very top edge. It may have screws at the bottom plate. It may have a decorative plastic ring at the very top that is conceling the mounting screws. You should be able to twist the plastic ring in an unscrewing motion and pull down to remove it.

Cannot remove casing around ceiling. Hampton Bay

Try twisting the bezel (cover) counterclockwise to unlock it from the mounting base plate on the ceiling. The other option is to see if the bezel/cowl has fasters (screws) holding it in place either from the sides near the top edge or at the bottom nearest the narrow portion of the cover.

Sometimes the fan cowl bezel is fastened using screws at the point nearest the motor shaft.

There could also be a trim ring that needs to be gently pryed off from the edge nearest the ceiling, so you can gain access to the screws that are holding the cowl in place on the mounting plate. There are usually 2 sets of 2 screws placed 180 degees apart from each other that secure the cowl in place.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

It slides in above right above the ball, in the mounting bracket where the canopy is. You may have to kind of encourage it to go in there, and you will need to push wiring off to the sides and out of the way to help it have clearance to get in there.

Remove exixting fan

Should have screws close to the ceiling on cover, then if it's a ball and socket you lift up and out through the cutout on the socket bracket, or a flushmount you find the screw that attaches to the bracket and lower down. then just take off wire nuts and install new fixture. Hope this helps.
