Question about Westinghouse Turbo Swirl 78145 Ceiling Fan
The globe turns but does not screw out. How do I remove it?
The globe is held on by three metal tension clips holding the globe to the base. To remove the globe, you need to pull down on the globe gently but firmly. Try pulling down on one side and then the other, sort of "wiggling" the globe off. Getting the globe back on can be a bit of a challenge, calling for you to get all three clips aligned in place before pushing the globe back up. A little patience and the job will go smoothly.
Hope this helps. If it does, please leave feedback! That is the only way I know if I am being of assistance or just wasting my time.

Yes its true. I find that I need to wear rubber-coated gloves that give me a good grip on the glass, then I can pull firmly while wiggling it off. It will eventually come off but you feel afriad that you are going to shatter it on the way off.

SOURCE: I can't remove the globe
My fan has no screws. You simply twist and tug the globe (firmly but easily) and find that it is held on by three "tension clips" that hold the thing in place.
If you are nervous, have someone else get on the other side of the ladder and hold the fan steady while you twist/tug the globe with two hands.
I did it by myself but I would have liked another pair of hands holding the fan steady while I gently but firmly tugged at the globe.
