Question about Hampton Bay Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I am trying to remove a Hampton Bay air conditioner from the window and I can't determine what is holding it in place. I removed 1 screw from the side of the cabinet, but it is still being held in place. How do I remove the air conditioner?

    I can't budge it, It seems like when I installed it several years ago, I may have fastened down the outside case first, then slid the body of the a/c into the case. I tug and tug, but it won't move and I don't see any other screws holding it in place.



    Any other ideas. It seems to be held firmly in place by something.

Pull hard :D
it is in there by gravity.
Nothing else.
Closely inspect for another screw - however one is standard.

Thanks :)

    A couple years ago???

    there could be anything in there preventing it from being removed.

    Dirt, Rust, (creatures) :)

    Really - there are no screws (or shouldnt be anyway) beyond the face of the air conditioner - as the condenser, evaporator, and tubing fill the rear of the cabinet - and a screw would be devistating if it pierces the metal cabinet.



    There should be 4 screws on top of the sleeve, and 4 on the bottom hoding the SLEEVE to the window - but the actual unit should have just one or 2 as it is not going anywhere (as you can see) anyway.



    If you installed any other screws outside the home - it will be up to you to find them - as it is not common practice.



    Good Luck (and pull harder) :D

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.

Trying to remove a ceiling fan Hampton Bay model C 542 MP (CH) PBL . its flush mounted and cant get to mounting bracket.


Look for 2 to 3 screws at the top edge of the fan's ceiling cowl. Remove those and the ceiling cowl can be sled down, which will expose the the ceiling mounting bracket . They are fairly small head screws, so look carefully for them.

There are 2 to 3 small screws that hold the ceiling cowl in place. Loosening and/r removing those should do the trick. The screws will be on the side of the top edge of the ceiling cowling.

What does the "dry mode" mean in a Hampton Bay air


The "dry mode" dehumidifies the air. This is useful when you do not need to cool the air but the relative humidity is higher than you want to have inside. You get the advantage of bringing in the fresh air without increasing the indoor humidity.

I hope this helps.

There are 3 small screws holding the cover to the base of the fan located at the upper most part of the fan at the ceiling.

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!
