Take the socket (or bulb) to an electric supply store. Tell them you need one (or one that fits this bulb).

SOURCE: Wiring a Hampton Bay ceiling fan

Hi Rexter,

I would pull the cover off of the Light switch and look at the color of the wire leaving the Variable speed device. I only assume the red wire is from that. I do not like to assume anything. So you must verify that a red wire leaves the Variable speed device. If it does, then i am assuming you dim the lights with this Variable device. The fan has its own built in Variable speed setup. In the case that the red wire belongs to the variable device, wire the Red to Blue(light), and Black to Black Whites to white. Green to Ground. bare wires to ground.

SOURCE: wiring problems

The only thing which goes to the house's white wire is the fan's white wire.

Both the black and blue wires from the fan (black for fan motor, blue for light kit) go to the black house wire.

Anything else could result in a fire, a melting of internal parts, or a massive electrical explosion arc. The owner's manual is very clear about how the fan is supposed to be wired, and you voided the warranty by going against it.

You may have blown a fuse or a circuit breaker, or you may have blown something within the fan, or your house may be wired in series (very unlikely) in which case you need a new separate wire run for the light kit.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, feel free to ask!

SOURCE: How to wire a remote control ceiling fan, without using remote.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

SOURCE: Hampton Bay 52 In. Clarington. How do I reverse the fan?

Try these two: 1) look for a small switch up near the light area on the dark-colored area of the fan. If a switch is there, then simply flip the switch to the other position; 2) if you have a remote control for the fan, the reverse mode may appear on the remote control. Hope this helps.

You might check to see if the blue wire is connected on top in the canopy and check if you have voltage coming out to your light kit at the wire connection with a meter. Careful with the power.

Replaced 2 of 4 bulbs with 75watt bulbs. It sparked upon turning on the light and now the light does not work at all. Fan still works????

In the cealing where the fan is mounted, you have wires in the switch the control the fan speeds, to the motor and wires that control the light. Most likely there is a wire exposed or short that every time you turn light on, it of course blows light out. Als check , open up switch on wall first to make sure no loose wire on wall switch. Please turn of breaker first, make SURE power is off. Please if this advice helped, give me 4 thumbs to help me and others, thanks, Mike

Trying to connect a ceiling fan light kit. I connected the blue wire from the fan kit to the black wire in the light kit and then connected the white wire from the fan kit to the white wire in the light...

Those connections sound OK ,, now you have to go to the canopy and see if all the wires for the fan/light are connected to a house wire. If there are two switches , then the blue fan wire would connect to the red wire .. it may be capped off in the ceiling. If there is only one control switch , then the blue wire from the fan will connect to the same ceiling wire as the black fan wire does.

Receiver quit. replacement has just one wire and a

all of the white wires connect together and to the white house wiring ... the black of the house wiring goes to the AC input of the module (may be a black wire ) .. the blue wire from the lights goes to the light output of the module (as you already know) ...

now the motor actually has only two wires .. one white that should already be hooked up with all the other white wires .. the other goes to a block that contains the speed controlling capacitors .. and that has the 4 wires (you metioned cominng from the motor) .. the capacitors are no longer needed since the speed control inside the module takes over .. so you can eliminate the capacitor block (thats normally connected to the speed control switch that you wont need either)... that will leave you with just one wire from the motor that has to be connected to the modules motor wire output ... that should do it ... set the code on the module and remote the same (in battery compartment of remote) (good idea to make sure your neighbor isnt using the same code ..

connect the green wire (or bare wire) to the metal of the fan ..usually a green screw or a bare wire .. thats the safety ground ..

Hampton bay ceiling fan stopped lights work

you can test the light switch by temporarily hooking up the light bulb to where the fan normally goes ....the bulb will only work on the highest speed setting but can prove if the switch is bad or not . turn power off before woking in there ... if you know someone with a volt meter then they could quickly test the switch for you .. they can also test the motor for continuity .. .. most of the time the trouble is simply bad connections inside the wire nuts ... like insulation not skinned properly or wire not in the wire nut properly can remove and inspect each connection (power off of course) ... sometimes there is a seperate power line for the fan and light ... so they can be independently controlled externally ... thats not needed when the pull chains are the only off on method ...

Hampton Bay Covington 54" Ceiling Fan Light Does Not Come On

Try taking the lighting kit completely off it make sure the blue wire and white wire are both firmly connected.

Does the remote work on the fan part ok? Do you have the black, white, and green wire on the house side connected to the side of the receiver with the same wires?

You know the black and blue are hot for the fan and lights (blue for lights). If the wiring connections are ok it had to be either in the remote or receiver. Are the dip switches set for the same on each?

Your receiver is shot and must be replaced. This is a small black or grey box two inches by four located under the cieling mount cover.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote

in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
