Question about Hampton Bay (261025) Dual Mount Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

My light fixture spins for a moment when turning on the fan.

Can the screw that the light fixture attaches to be stripped? I have taken it apart twice and can find no other problem. It does not seem to tighten all the way like I've seen in installation videos

Yes. I would expect that screw to be a 8 X 32. You can try a 10 X 32 ... or you could put a 8 X 32 in the hole from the top and put a nut on the bottom.

I am trying to install a ceiling fan and from the ceiling I have a copper white and black wire. Now from the fan itself there is a black blue and white wire. Not sure where to connect the copper wire.


Good question, proper wiring is a crucial virtue that needs to be one hundred percent accurate.

Three wires showing from the ceiling lamp fixture harness, positive, negative, and ground.

The negative wire is the white wire,
The Hot wire (positive) is the wire of brighter color than known negative,
220V AC (alternating current) home wiring to(" duplex outlet switch, GFI switch, single/dual pole light switch, lamp fixtures,") the Hot wire or lead, is normally Black, the lighter color, or White is neutral or neggative,
Neutral wire (completes circuit) allows current flow to continue through to other parts of house, Alternating current.

The Ground wire is usually wrapped in green color, or unmarked copper.

The copper wire from the ceiling will need to be grounded to the metal bracket on the new light fixture, a gold or silver screw, sometimes tagged with green, is the proper grounding location, Any place on Metal not attached to ceiling bracket, Ground should be attached to metal on fan,

White wire from Fan is neutral, Negative.
Black wire from Fan is Hot Wire, Positive,
If Blue wire from Fan is Not Manufacture spliced, Meaning no Copper is exposed, Wire is not used, Blue wire is NOT ground,
If Fan has a light, Voltage from Hot Black wire will supply both light and fan functions,

Safety First.
flip off breaker switch to the room fan is being installed.

Doubble Check
Black^Black wire connection is secure.

White^White neutral wire connection is secure.

Ground is fastened securely to metal or wrapped under a screw.

Using splice caps is recomended, The plastic shell encloses the wire connection ensuring No stray copper is exposed, limits possibility of cross wiring.

Google the brand of fan being installed, and Check wire color code, and wiring diagram, Info good to have, and checking twice will only guarantee Lamp Fixture Install Well Done.

(Blue wire may be there for installing multiple ceiling fixtures in a loop circuit, so all controlled by same light switch.)


Enjoy Your New Fan,

None of the lights work on the fan but the blades spin


1. Test bulbs in another appliance. Are they burnt out?
2. Some fans have a separate pull chain switch, Check to see if there is one and pull to turn on.
3. Lights in a fan are a separate unit attached internally with wires via a twist cap. They may have come loose. If you are handy, try removing the light fixture from the fan, usually three or four small screws on side of base. The light fixture will come down exposing the wiring.
If you are not handy, call an electrician depending on what you think it is worth the expense of buying a whole new light and fan.

Hello. I need help with my fan, please. I have hampton bay ac-527 nn sku# 360-424 . Trying To remove light To replace burned out bulb light but having trouble removing. HELP ME PLEASE. Mike


You got me wondering about a fan I have with an enclosed bowl-like light fixture (I don't know how closely this resembles your model, but bulb access is not immediately obvious on it either). I looked on top of the light section and found a #2 Phillips screw on the top plate of the light fixture near the rim. It seems likely that loosening or removing it will let the bowl come out at the bottom of the fixture so you can get at the bulb. You will probably need a short-handled screwdriver to get in under the motor housing. There are also three #2 Phillips screws going into the side of the cylindrical section below the fan blades at the bottom; this section has the fan and light chain-operated switches attached to it. Those probably attach the entire light fixture to the rest of the fan.

How do I uninstall a ceiling fan?


Turn the power off, to be safe i recommend turning it off at the breaker box, there should be a list on the onside of the panel door showing what switches operate what. or you can simply leave the wall switch that operates the fan in the off position if you're sure nobody will turn it on. If fan has a light remove the glass bowl over the bulbs, should be three screws it the top of the glass fixture, loosen them with your fingers, if they are to tighttry pushing up on the bowl from the bottom to relieve pressure off the finger screw. Remove light bulbs then unbolt each fan blade, once the blades are off remove the motor cover should be one small screw at top of the cover close to the ceiling, once the screw or screws are removed if the cover does not come down you may need toturn it using both hands, it only needs to turn a little bit and no need to be gentle. With the motor cover off the mounting bracket should be easy to spot. Some brackets only have one srcew on one end and a tad that slides into a slot on the upper bracket, by removing the one screw this will allow the motor assembly to swing down but still be attached to the bracket for support. Whith the motor hanging the wiring in the fixture box in the ceiling should be visible, pull the wires out of the box so ythat the wire nuts are accessible. there will bee three wires coming from the fan, one screwed directly to the box or bracket, loosen the screw with a screwdriver and pull the wire from the box, the other two wires attached to wires with wire nuts, one at a time remove the nuts by twisting them off with your fingers, pull the wires apart and twist the wire nut back onto the wires coming from the box in the ceiling, the fan should now be disconnected. romove the motor from the brack by turning it 90? and sliding the tab out of the slot in the upper bracket. remove the upper bracket piece from the fixture box. Now that you have done this installing a new light fixture should bea breeze for you.
the video shows a different easier type of fan removal. There are numerous types of fans and how they are mounted, i hope this helps you

Light On Ceiling fan quit working and i have a green wire hanging


The green wire is a ground wire and the fan and light should function without it connected.

You can attempt to reconnect that wire, turn off the power to the fixture at the power panel. Drop the base of the fan (typically 3-4 screws around the base) then reconnect the green wire to the inner base, you should notice a screw that doesnt actually connect anything or hold anything together and that would be the screw the green wire attaches to. If you do not feel comfortable with this I would suggest hiring a qualified electrician to diagnose and repair the fixture.

Replacing a light fixture


This is much simpler than it sounds, but if you're a total novice you'll need to read it all.

First, make sure power to fixture is off. Best method is to locate circuit breaker or fuse that controls that fixture's power. At minimum shut off the wall switch to it if there is one.

Next, remove the old fixture. Usually there are two screws or decorative nuts holding the base cover (canopy) on. On ceiling pendant fixtures there may be a retaining ring holding up the canopy, unscrew this ring counterclockwise and the canopy will drop over the support chain, exposing the junction box where the wires are connected.

It is critical at this point that the power is off.

Modern house wiring and fixtures are connected with three wires.
Green or bare copper = ground (earth)
White or grey = neutral
Black, Red, Blue or any other solid color other than green, white or grey = power or hot wire (this is the wire that is controlled by a switch.
For simplicity I will call the three: Green, White and Black.

The next step requires you to carefully pull the wires out of the junction box and isolate the black, white and green wire connections from each other. Make sure the connectors (wire nuts) for each connection are accessible.

Warning: With old or over heated wiring, take extra care not to crack or disturb the insulation(wire covering) on any of the wires. If insulation is crumbling away exposing bare wire, stop and call an electrician! Do not turn the power back on until he has repaired those damaged wires, they could start a fire.

Isolate the connection between the black house wire and black fixture wire. Remove this wire nut. At this point I usually use an electrical tester to double check that the power is off by touching one side to the newly exposed black connection and any grounded metal part nearby.
(Note: some multiple switched (three way) circuits may use a white wire as a power wire. If the black fixture wire is connected to a white house wire, mark that white house wire with black electrical tape for future identification.)
Once you are positive there is no power at the fixture junction box remove the connectors from the white and green wires.

Detach the old fixture and it's mounting bracket.

Re-attach the new fixture using bracket and new connectors that are usually provided. Some brackets have a green ground screw. Wrap the bare ground wire clockwise around that screw and tighten it down leaving enough remaining ground wire to attach to the fixture ground.

If the wires to the new fixtures do not have a 1/2 inch of exposed bare wire at the ends (stripped) you must do so. I use a wire stripping tool but you can do it with a sharp knife being careful not to nick the metal wire.
Once the wire tips are stripped, hold the tips of each color pair together side by side, slip the wire nut over them and twist clockwise until snug. (White to white, black to black etc.)
Take care that the new wire nuts are secure at each connection. Do not over tighten them but insure that they are correctly attached by gently tugging on each wire. When completed the black and white connections should have no exposed bare wire showing.
The Green (bare copper) wire is there for safety and never carries current, hence exposed wire is not an issue on ground wires.

Assemble and attach the new fixture according to instructions in the box.

Pendant ceiling fixtures usually require additional assembly steps including adjusting chain height, looping wires through the chain and slipping retaining nut and canopy over chain prior to connecting. Always follow directions that come with the fixtures.

When in doubt, call a professional. Electricity is dangerous.

An octagon box should have the same screw spacing as a round box, however, with very old electrical fixtures, all bets are off when it comes to standard sizes. More important than that though is this: Was there a fan there before or are you replacing a light fixture? If it is a light fixture, you need to make sure that the box is sufficient to hold a fan. The weight is significantly higher than most lights and the movement makes it worse. If it was a light, there are fan boxes you can get to retrofit it so that it will be safe.

Minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement


The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.
