How do I uninstall a ceiling fan?

Turn the power off, to be safe i recommend turning it off at the breaker box, there should be a list on the onside of the panel door showing what switches operate what. or you can simply leave the wall switch that operates the fan in the off position if you're sure nobody will turn it on. If fan has a light remove the glass bowl over the bulbs, should be three screws it the top of the glass fixture, loosen them with your fingers, if they are to tighttry pushing up on the bowl from the bottom to relieve pressure off the finger screw. Remove light bulbs then unbolt each fan blade, once the blades are off remove the motor cover should be one small screw at top of the cover close to the ceiling, once the screw or screws are removed if the cover does not come down you may need toturn it using both hands, it only needs to turn a little bit and no need to be gentle. With the motor cover off the mounting bracket should be easy to spot. Some brackets only have one srcew on one end and a tad that slides into a slot on the upper bracket, by removing the one screw this will allow the motor assembly to swing down but still be attached to the bracket for support. Whith the motor hanging the wiring in the fixture box in the ceiling should be visible, pull the wires out of the box so ythat the wire nuts are accessible. there will bee three wires coming from the fan, one screwed directly to the box or bracket, loosen the screw with a screwdriver and pull the wire from the box, the other two wires attached to wires with wire nuts, one at a time remove the nuts by twisting them off with your fingers, pull the wires apart and twist the wire nut back onto the wires coming from the box in the ceiling, the fan should now be disconnected. romove the motor from the brack by turning it 90? and sliding the tab out of the slot in the upper bracket. remove the upper bracket piece from the fixture box. Now that you have done this installing a new light fixture should bea breeze for you.
the video shows a different easier type of fan removal. There are numerous types of fans and how they are mounted, i hope this helps you

Bad hunter ceiling fan light pull switch

I don't know what you mean, longer stem/chain housing to hold light fixture. You should be replacing a two wire switch only.

How do you remove a canopy cover from a Hampton Bay fan?

Turn off the circuit breaker supplying power to the ceiling fan. The circuit breaker is in your home electrical box and may control more than just the ceiling fan. Place a stepladder under the Hampton Bay fan.

Remove the light bulbs and light covers from the fixture, if you have a light assembly on your ceiling fan. Remove the screws securing the light assembly housing to the fan with a Phillips screwdriver. Lower the light assembly, and hold it in one hand.

Twist counterclockwise the wire nuts securing the wires for the ceiling fan and light assembly, using your free hand to separate the wires. Lower the light assembly from the fan and set it in a safe place.

Turn the screws securing the fan blades to the unit with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the blades from the fan and set them aside. Find the screws securing the canopy to the ceiling mounting plate. Loosen the screws two complete revolutions. Turn the canopy counterclockwise and unhook it from the screws. Slide the canopy over the fan motor housing and away from the fan.

Ask a helper to hold the fan motor housing if you have a Hampton Bay fan with a down rod. Slide the canopy over the down rod until it rests on top of the motor housing. Disconnect the fan wires from the ceiling wires, twisting the plastic wire caps counterclockwise. Slide the hangar ball, at the top of the down rod, out of the mounting bracket. Slide the canopy over the top of the down rod to remove it from the fan.

Both the fan and light have ceased to function!!!

As an electrician, this is a fairly common problem with any kind of fixture - not limited just to paddle fans. The problem is likely a loose connection in the ceiling box, or even elsewhere in the circuit, as the chance that both the fan and light failed at the same time is very slim. Since the fixture is a paddle fan - when it is operated it causes movement and is a dynamic load - as a opposed to a static load that a non-moving simple light fixture would present. The constant movement can loosen a connection over time. Before we go any further, operate any speed control / light switch on the fixture itself to make sure they haven't been accidentally set to the off position.

Shut off the power. Loosen the screws on the cover or canopy that that will allow access to the wiring compartment in the ceiling. LOOK for anything obviously loose. You may need to have someone hold the fixture once you remove it from the hanger to see the connections - or simply disconnect the fixture wires from the house wiring completely. There may be 2 or 3 wires besides any bare or green ground wire that supplies the fixture. Photograph or otherwise mark the wires before removing the fixture wires.

Turn the power back on, and use a tester (preferably a meter) to see if power is present on the ceiling box wires that supplied the fixture. If present, the problem lies in the fixture wiring or individual fan / light pull chain switches. Wires do not fail along unbroken lengths unless cut. They will fail at places they are joined together. There may be a wiring compartment in the light fixture that has a loose connection. Inspect for loose or bad connections with power off and continue testing as above until you isolate the bad connection.

If there was no power in the ceiling earlier when the power was restored, there is a break elsewhere between the power source and the ceiling box. You'll have to look in switch boxes and outlet boxes in the room and possibly adjoining rooms to find the loose connection. It may even be in an adjoining room's ceiling box, too. This is a labor intensive job - and can take some time to locate and repair. Take your time and only turn power on when ready to check for the presence of power.

Of course, you could call an electrician to do the work for you. I hope this was helpful - good luck!

In changing out an incandescent light bulb in a ceiling mounted light fixture, the glass hanging pendant was loose, so I removed the fixture from the ceiling, leaving the wiring connected, and tightened...

Many times with very old wiring the wire can break inside the coating and not be visible. To check for sure what has happened you will need an electric tester. You will need to check for 120 volts acros the two wires with the switch on. If there is no power, then check at the switch. If there is power there then the wire is broken.
Replacement of the old wires in an old house is very difficult and you will probably want to hire a professional to do that.

I have removed the light fixture on my hunter vista iron model 20538. It looks like there should be some sort of a cap that goes on the bottom of the switch fixture. do you know how I might locate one?

There is usually a blank cover that comes with tyhe fan when new, but when installing a light kit they usually get trashed ,, Try any bnuilding supply store that stocks the Hunter fans ,, bring the part for the light fixture so you can get the exact size and mounting screw araingement as the old kit .

Fixing Ceiling Fan

An easy-to-install ceiling fan can make a real difference in your home's climate - both cooling and heating - at a far lower cost and operating expense than almost any other item.
The installation begins with choosing where the fan should be located. In almost all homes, the fan is installed in the center of the room, replacing a central light fixture. This spot provides a smooth air flow to most of the room. Since a fan draws about the same power as a ceiling fixture, the electrical circuit shouldn't be overloaded. But if your fan includes lights, be sure the circuit it's on has enough extra capacity to handle the load. If not, you must run a new circuit with a new circuit breaker from the house main service panel or subpanel to the fan. If there is no central light fixture, you'll have to create a place to hang the ceiling fan. Then, you'll need to bring electrical power to it. You can tap into an existing circuit to do this.
