SOURCE: How to Change light bulb (yes, really...)

If yours is the same as the model 04890 that I looked up on the net, you will unscrew the center nut of the light fixture being carefull to not let the fixture drop to the floor. Once you have the center piece off you will be able to unscrew the bulbs and install new ones. Be carefull and be sure power is off before you do this.

This may not apply. There could be an electrical problem. But if you installed the bulb with your hand, the oil on your skin can cause the buld to heat excessively and fail. I suggest you use the packaging or part of it when installing it, taking great care not to touch it.

Pry the lens (the white part) from the rear near the two sides with a flat screw driver. Don't pry the ring/edge around it.Take the bulb straight out or pry it out. Press the new bulb in the slot and press the lens back on.

SOURCE: hampton bay ceiling fan , model # 55295

I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips right out of the groove.

I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

The fix is that the magnet inside the bottom of the motor eventually drops enough as it spins(plastic hat-shaped piece under it wears/crushes down) to rub on the bottom of it, where it is metal, causing the noise. You can easily remedy this by taking apart the motor, pulling out the magnet and plastic booster piece under it, placing a thin washer on the bottom to boost them up a bit, then reassembling. Problem solved and no need to buy some overpriced part and fill up the landfills with perfectly good equip!

52" Vaxcel Fresco II Oil Burnished Bronze Finish Ceiling Fan cant change downlight

why not, cant you figure out how to change a light bulb? Look carefully at the way it is made, look for screws to remove a plastic or glass cover to get access to the downlight ,which i assume is a light that points down.
worst case senario is you have to read the owners manual under how to change the light bulb
or call up customer service and ask them how or at least how to call techinical service.
In all fairness , a down light may not be a light bulb that points down , but some kind of compact flouresent light bulb.
check if vaxcel has a web site. they might have instructions on how to change a down light bulb.

How do i remove a ballast

ballast--- -usually a ballast transformer used in flouresent lights to turn 120 volts ac into 2000 or 3000 volts ac at a lower amperage. the ballast transformer has 4 nuts ,one at each corner for physical mounting .2 wires for the ac line cord and 4 wires for the flouresent tube. wires are connected together with wire nuts that can be pulled off the wires while unscrewing the wire nuts.
make a picture of what color wires go where,take wires off one at a time and make pictures. the wires are not interchangable and must go back exactly where they came off from or the unit will never work again.
many ballast transformers have an electrical diagram showing where the wires go. you may need a magnifing glass to see it well enough read it. Please study the diagram and understand it before you begin disassembly.
WARNING: You must make sure that the electriic cord is unplugged or the circuit breaker on the OFF POSITION
with the electricity on ,you can be electrocuted by either the 120 volts ac or the 3000 volts ac that means crash,burn and fry.
so de-energize first.
The replacement ballest must be rated for the wattage of the flouresent bulbs ,the length of the flouresent bulbs and the diameter of the flouresent bulbs. that are in the lighting fixture. the flouresent bulbs also have their own make and model numbers.the model numbers of the bulbs are standardized throughout the industry. The model number of the flouresnt bulbs that a ballast will work with is on thw ballest sticker, on the cardboard box and on the directions.the salesman in the flouresent ballest [lamp] section at home depot or lowes should also be able to help you.

In my Hampton Bays ceiling fan is a circular fluorescent bulb which gives very poor light. Is it possible to put in a different lighting system like hallogen?

Yws it is possible.Check on the fan before changing anything, there should be a maximum wattage sticker. Do not go any bringter than the max, it is there for a reason. If your plans are to install incondesent light system, be aware. that, bulb puts out much more heat,

Ceiling fans not bright enough

In this case, probably not. The issue is heat, and the limit is space. One suggestion, new fluorescent bulbs give more light with less wattage. If you can find one that will physically fit in the space, this might get you more light.

Changing light bulb in ceiling fan

At the top of the pull chain there is a metal piece; this is threaded on a bolt. Unscrew the metal piece and lower the globe to expose the bulbs then remove and replace the bulb(s). I recommend flourescents as they are more economical, run cooler and last linger than incandescents (regular bulbs).
