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.

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.

We have a hampton bay ceiling fan model 54cvt. We cant figure out how to change the light bulb or change the direction of the blades. We dont have a manual for the fan.

This fan is also known as the Hampton Bay Covington 54 Ceiling Fan. You need to turn the globe anti clockwise until it comes out. The full instruction manual can be found here.
If you have another fan model other than the Hampton Bay 54CVT then try here

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).
