Not common, keep in mind compositor work almost like a fuse but restrict certain amount of voltage to flow through, power surge or unit overload from AC compressor kicking on and off can cause the resistor to fail; its parts of electronics working. My AC unit trip my main fuse box once in the great while, nothing surprises me when it come to electronics.

    I had two Hampton Bay AC-55400D outside fans that stopped working. The speed control capacitor had "exploded". Both units had exactly the same problem! Capacitor failure in outdoor equipment is quite common and the manufacturer just does not seal them adequately.

I broke one of my 4 glass shades for my ceiling fan, how can I get a replacement?


Since, "Hampton Bay" is the house brand for Home Depot, your best bet is to start there. Getting an exact replacement will depend on how old your Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan is. Some glass shades and/or globes are discontinued after a few years, as the trends in shades change.

Hope this helped you.

Hampton bay glass shade broke model no. 640-658


good luck cutrite , Hampton Bays importer King of Fans in Fl prob wont even know what your talking about they don't speak English very good. If you speak Chinese you might have a chance but if the part is over a year old..'forget about it' as we would say... they don't stock old parts (over a year) and everything is manufactured in China. Try a local lighting store you'll save yourself a lot of aggravation. And don't patronize Hampton Bay it only encourages them to push garbage on us all.

Have a hampton bay 24000 BTU AC. Smelled burnig behind control panal. Opened it up found what seems to be an overload switch burnt through.. Leads go to capacitor terminal C & Herm. I changed the...


I checked wiring on my other 17,000 BTU Hampton bay AC & noted there was no overload switch wired into capacitor. So i just removed the burnt out overload switch which was causing a ground & blowing breaker. I noted it was not wired in between the compressor circuit but just attached to the compressor terminal & common terminal on capacitor. I guess it is a sacrafise type device that saves the compressor from burning out on overload. Anyway The AC worked fine with the burnt overload switch removed. It has been runnning 2 days now with no problems. I however did replace the capacitor with a new one. You can use either an oval or round capacitor as there is ample room. Just make sure your cap. values match old one. I will probable try & purchase a new overload switch if possable & install it at a later date, for the extra protection.

Ceiling fan power


It sounds like the fan motor has blown out. Is this an old fan? The motors do burn out every 5-10 years, depending on the brand and quality of motor.
