Question about Dryers

Have tried all suggestions to remove globe to change bulbs.....nothing works. Help

Ceiling fan has toggle running through the middle and down through the finial at the bottom of the globe. The other toggles run through small guides and then drape over the globe....no model no. Or manual.... The finial doesn't seem to undo nor does the globe loosen when turned....this is rather ridiculous

There should be a nutcap at the bottom of the finial that holds the globe in place. If not, then three set screws around the top of the globe need to be loosened. If the finial turns as well, you should be able to unscrew it all the way out, then you will have to reattach it and use a nut to tighten it up so it doesn't turn in the future.

How do I change the lightbulb in the HC-1131 ceiling fan... the globe will not come off and the whole shaft turns if I try to lift and turn the only part that looks like it comes off


I appologize in advance for not having absolute, 100% certainty if this will work with your particular model of fan, but it appears that most fans of that style have a threaded globe glass covering. The difficulty most people encounter, is that if the globe is even mildly warm from the fan motor running, it will be near-impossible to grip, much less to turn.
In all related cases I had read about, the solution was to allow about 12 to 24 hours of power to the fan being completely off to allow it to cool, then try turning the globe to unscrew it. Most suggest "clockwise" but I have no way of knowing if they mean clockwise from the perspective of looking up at the globe, or clockwise relative to the fixture itself.
Some also suggest that rubber gloves to improve grip or friction may also help to turn the globe.

How do i get light bulb cover off k9375 ceiling fan


The entire glass globe twists off (counterclockwise looking at the globe from below). It is kind of tricky, but if you apply constant pressure eventually it will begin to turn slowly, and then (1/4-1/2 turn) it will pop right off.

WARNING: I strongly suggest you have another pair of hands to help ensure the globe doesn't come crashing down to the ground, as it's VERY easy to do!

How to change the bulbs I turn and turn the globe and lower assembly but the glass doesn't release! The shaft rises up slightly but then clicks back down Any suggestions?


Hampton Bay assembly information is tough to come by on the internet - except for sales info. As an electrician, I have hung more fans than I can remember, and have never found any that were not secured by either (1) three or more thumb screws, (2) a threaded portion of the glass globe or (3) a "bayonnette" (quick twist) type mount that required little more than an inch or so of twist to remove.

The globe should be removed by either loosening / removing three or more thumb screws that are designed to engage the recess between the globe itself and a lip around the opening; unscrewing the glass globe light a light bulb ; OR by twisting the globe about an inch or so in one direction or the other (like many automotive-type lamps). I suspect the type you have is the latter. From your account of what is happening, it suggests to me that the entire fan / light fixture is twisting on the fan support on the electrical ceiling box when you are trying to twist the globe. The globe and rest of the fixture are moving as one instead of independantly of each other.

If yours is the type that must be twisted from the base, you'll need to prevent the rest of the fixture from twisting at the same time while attempting to remove the globe. This will probably require a second person to help - given that it seems to have become wedged in place, and trying to grip it and balance the globe might be to much to do by yourself. If yours is held in place by thumb screws, no amount of twisting will allow it to be removed.

There should be no "secret" way of accessing the light bulbs, something has happened that is preventing the easy removal of the globe - whether it is corrosion, dirt or some other debris. Make sure you clean it up completely before reassembly.

I hope this helps! Good luck!

How do I remove the light from the ceiling?


Sent you a question on this but did not receive a reply.
If you are talking about removing the grill/globe to change bulbs, it just pulls down from the ceiling. There is a heavy "V" spring on each side that needs to be compressed to pull the grill/globe down. Once it is down as far as it will go, the springs need to be squeezed together and the ends removed from the metal box in order to take the grill/globe off. It is not necessary to remove the grill/screen completely to change bulbs.
Please see my other message.

Light bulb replacement in ceiling fan. Hampton Bay with a solid globe (no hole in middle) - how to remove globe?


Look for three or four small thumbscrews around the metal rim that holds the globe. Unscrew each several turns while holding the globe with your other hand underneath to keep it from dropping out. You should not have to remove the screws completely. Just loosen them all enough to remove the globe. If there are no screws then the globe may twist into the rim light a light bulb. Hold the fan housing steady and turn the globe counter-clockwise to unscrew it. If it turns but does not unscrew then there are probably screws holding it as first described. They may be flush with the rim and you may need a small screwdriver or Allen wrench to unscrew them.

How do i remove the light to change a light bulb?


i looked it up online and they called it a:

Some things i would suggest:
  1. push it up and turn (like when you open a medicine bottle.
  2. try to look for a spring action peg that clicks in automatically around the glass dome that might be locking it...

please comment my solution :) thanks

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).
