Fan instructions to disassemble unit to allow changing upper globe bulbs

Need to change bulbs in the upper globe of our unit as well as cleaning. Have misplaced any instructions we got with the unit during moving. The unit is about 12 years old. Are there instructions you could email to us?

    Missing instruction

  • htht Dec 23, 2007

    We have problem in the same are of our Heritage ceiling fan. We need to change bulbs but can't twist the globe cover off. It has been removed and reattached within the last year but now it won't budge. Are there any alternatives? It would pain us to have to replace a perfectly good ceiling fan because we can't replace the light bulbs.

    How do you clean the E20739 model of Lasko Ionizing Tower Fan?
    Huge dust bunnies that are visibly prevalent inside fan remain unfazed when I tried to vacuum outer surface with a brush attachment unsuccessfully,  There are two screws at the top and four screws at the bottom on the back of the fan, but they cannot be moved with a screw driver.  Are they supposed to be removed to clean the fan?  I am experiencing very severe asthma and need to clean the product ASAP.   Please help.

Should be a set of screws around the outer edge, loosen while holding the globe, some globes if there are no screws twist off, be very careful.

    My unit has no screws, and the globe portion will simply twist, but not come out. I have tried pressing upward carefully while twisting counter clockwise. There is no way to pull down as the set up does not leave any finger room for this. I am getting frustrated enough hat I simply want to break it and replace it.

Instructions for changing light bulb on Hampton bay model 589 382 ceiling fan.

The answer is already on Fixya :>)

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.

Change bulb in ceiling fan model #40934. Was following instruction to push on globe then slight counter clockwise turn isn't working. Heelp

Hey Jennifer,
Look closely at the base of the globe.. there is (usually)(three of these).. a small groove(s) that make a 90* bend ..these grooves mate to the three screws on the side of the fan's globe socket,, the screws have to be backed out a little to allow the globe to seat and the screws guide the globe in place, once the globe is in place then retighten each screw a little at a time until the globe is tight

Need to change bulb on harbor breexe LGF-1 ceiling fan but can't figure out how to get to bulb?

I spoke with Harbor Breeze and finally received the answer. To get to the bulb, you need to push up slightly on the glass globe only. Not the metal ring around the glass. Then a slight turn counter-clockwise will allow the glass to drop down. It's a short 100W halogen bulb that's readily available at the hardware store. Also, in case you call Harbor Breeze, the item number for the LGF fan is #77461.

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!

I have lost my instructions and cannot figure out how to replace the burned out light bulb in my Minka Aire F603 ceiling fan unit; I can't figure out how to get to the bulb - can't figure out how to get...

Hi Bill. So far I have not been able to find a manual, but I will keep looking. In the mean time, if you want to give it a try, it appears to me that the circular piece that has the fingers that hold the light globe is probably put in place to hold the globe by a "turning" motion. If you were to reach up and grab this ring and gently turn it counter clock wise I bet it would turn perhaps 1-3 inches and disengage the fan body. Makes sense that the manufacturer would make it easy to change light bulbs and viewing the fan, this would be about the easiest way to do it. I would assume the glass globe is NOT fastened to this ring in any manner, so if you do decide to try this, be ready to have the glass globe release from the holding ring.
I will let you know when/if I find a manual. If you decide to try my solution and are satisfied with it, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. BTW, nice fan. Paul

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.

How do you change the light bulb

Remove the glass globe exposing the bulbs and replace. Some of the globes have screws around the metal rim that hold them in place and some actually unscrew as a unit.

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).
