Hampton Bay 326-946

I cannot find my model Hampton Bay Raleigh 111 model 326-946.
I went to change the light bulb,heard a buzzing sound as if it shorted out. The light no longer works, However the fan does. When I pull the change on the fan. a second time the lights come on for about 30 seconds and go out again.I called home depot, they really didn't want to bother with this problem and said it was my wiring. If this was true why does the fan still work? If I call a electrician he will charge me more than the light cost. I had a certified electrician install it the first time.
What should I do? Is this possibly a defective problem or do I need an electrician

Chances are the wire nut came off the connection for the light unit. If you're handy, shut off the fan mechanism at the fan (pull chain until fan is off), then turn off the power at the breaker box, ensure the power is off at the light switch and proceed to unscrew the fixture from the mounting unit (attached to the ceiling).

Carefully support the fan unit with one hand ( there should be a silver grounding wire that will help support the unit - unless it wasn't installed properly in which case the unit will be heavy - try to balance on the ladder if it's tall enough). Look for the white and black wires - one will be for the fan unit, one for the light unit.

Check to see both are securely attached by wire nuts. If one is loose or has come apart, carefully re-twist the wires tight (turn to the right as this is the way the wire nut twists on so it will stay together when you replace the wire nut. If when you replace the wire nut the wires are still loose, replace the wire nut - they do get old and tired.

At this point I would turn on the power at the breaker box and turn on the switch for the fan on the wall. Then try the light unit - see if that fixed the problem. If it has, turn off power again, replace the unit the same way you took it down - if not, there is a problem in the internal wiring . . . check with warranty depot.

Hope this helps,

The light quit working. We heard a popping sound. Fan still works. What could this be? Can it be fixed?

Change the bulb, if pops again may have to replace switch or bulb socket.

How do I change the light bulb in a model 66266

It twists off counterclock wise. If that doesn't work, try spraying some WD-40 around the glass. Wipe off excess oil.

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

Light kit has light bulb size that I cannot find bulbs for

Melanie, you must have gotten a bad batch of bulbs. I have installed over 100 Hampton Bay ceiling fans and I have dropped them from up the ladder and have them bounce across the floor with no damage. I think they must have allowed a substandard batch to go out.

Home Depot is where I buy my replacement bulbs. Hampton Bay make fans exclusively for HD.

You can easily change lighting bases, as the wiring is the same for all Hampton Bay. You may even appeal to Hampton Bay on the internet and they might send you the kits. But I don't think you'd have success in a store.

If you try replacing them with bulbs from another Home Depot you may find them much hardier. I wish you the best of luck, and if you need additional help please write back.

Hampton Bay ceiling fan with pull chains not working

Whether there is a reset switch on this unit or not would depend on the model. If you no longer have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the hampton web site. Many fans have a thermal fuse inline that probably was blown when the bulb broke. The cheaper models do not and then I would guess you burned out the switch.

This Hampton Bay light fan fixture eats Light Bulbs

Read the manual to find out which size bulbs (base size and wattage) you need.

If you did use the right type of bulb and it lasted only 2 weeks, take them back to the store where you boght them for a refund.
