Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
There is a small brass tab inside the socket that gets compressed by some bulbs...when you change the bulb it doesnt spring back out towards the bulb base like its supposed to. to fix it u need a small plastic screwdriver or a wooden fingernail tool...ask your wife she probably has a dozen of em...SHUT OFF THE POWER as a precaution...not by turning off the switch but at the breaker panel...then remove the bulb and gently insert the tool in the bulb base and pull the little brass tab towards you about 1/4 of a inch...reinsert the bulb and turn power back on. This should solve your problem.

Finally, we got it. As some of these solutions suggest, the trick is to hold the metal rim while turning the glass globe to the left. It took two of us, one holding the rim and the other turning, but voila, there it is.

I found that the minka website has the installation manuals online.
www.minkagroup.net/http://www.minkagroup.net/minkaairemanuals.asp The glass cover on a Concept I fans turns counterclockwise. I had to use rubber gloves to get a good grip on the light cover.

I have the same fan
Only try to turn the glass cover in the opposite direction that is posted for close. You will want to do this after the light has cooled. It tends to sieze when it lense heats up.

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.

Did someone give you advice on this? My fan is doing the same thing. Fan works fine, but the light does not. Looks like the electricity is not making it down to the ballast - trying to figure out how I can repair it.
