Hampton fan I am installing a hampton fan and cannot figure out how to mount the cover to the ceiling? It has screws along the outer edge but nothing on the ceiling to screw it into. I bought the display so I may be missing a part?

    Same probleme here...no mounting plate to attach the fan to. Was not in the box when we opened it...and they won't let me return it, and they don't have another one like it in any store. Home Depot doesn't carry these type of mounting plates...and are basically useless. Even more useless is calling Hampton Bay. They say take it back to Home Depot. SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, HAS to have this mounting plate. One place has a lot of parts....but nothing that will fit my fan. Maybe you will have better luck.

You are probably missing a part. There should be a mounting plate...usually round...that attaches to the ceiling or electrical box. The mounting plate would have small tabs or a lip around the edge with threaded holes for attaching the cover.

Trying to remove a ceiling fan Hampton Bay model C 542 MP (CH) PBL . its flush mounted and cant get to mounting bracket.


Look for 2 to 3 screws at the top edge of the fan's ceiling cowl. Remove those and the ceiling cowl can be sled down, which will expose the the ceiling mounting bracket . They are fairly small head screws, so look carefully for them.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

REMOVAL FROM CEILING


In general, the steps are:

1. Turn off power at the breaker -- not just the light switch.
(There are still "hot" wires in the junction box when "Off".)

2. Take out any light bulbs.

3. Remove any light globes. Some screw in, but most are held by springs so just pull gently with a bit of force.

4. Remove fan blades. Most have a spring at the inside edge of the blade -- press down on the spring and push the blade toward the fan motor.

5. Remove the ceiling mount cover. There is usually a circular ring up next to the ceiling; just twist it off with your hands ("lefty - loosy, righty-tighty").

6. Unscrew the ceiling mount screws. Usually there is one or two in a "simple" hole, and two one "sliding" slots. Take out the "simple" screws, and loosen (but don't remove) the "sliding" screws. Be careful not to drop screws or washers into the fan motor.

7. Twist off the ceiling mount cover to expose the wiring.

8. Disconnect all wires. For safety, put a wire nut on the wires from the ceiling.

9. Tip the fan and remove it from the ceiling mount. Keep in mind that the fan is pretty heavy, and you're on a ladder!

NOTE: Be careful not to put any pressure on any of the blade holders, especially if you intend to re-use the fan. If you do, the blades will wobble.

10. If you're installing a new fan, you can probably re-use the mount. If you want to put up a simple light fixture, remove the mount by unscrewing the two long screws holding it to the junction box.

How do you get cover that butts to ceiling off ? i am replacing ceiling fan


If you can't see any screws, there probably is an outer trim ring, that is against the ceiling, that turns counterclockwise and comes off. That will expose the screws that hold the cover.

I can't find any mounting screws or bolts on the ceiling fan motor assembly. How do I remove it from the ceiling?


Yopu first need to drop the canopy co0ver from the ceiling mount. The cover may have screws at the very top edge. It may have screws at the bottom plate. It may have a decorative plastic ring at the very top that is conceling the mounting screws. You should be able to twist the plastic ring in an unscrewing motion and pull down to remove it.

Need to uninstall the fan as it has become a bit loose from the ceiling


The first thing to do is loosen the ceiling canopy, there is usually a couple screws at the top edge of the canopy. then you want to disconnect the wiring, do not forget the green wire also. then depending on the mounting type, it may just lift out, one side of the mounting bracket has a space to allow the ball to pass thru. Or you may have to unscrew a couple mounting screws at the ends iof the mounting bracket

Cannot remove casing around ceiling. Hampton Bay


Try twisting the bezel (cover) counterclockwise to unlock it from the mounting base plate on the ceiling. The other option is to see if the bezel/cowl has fasters (screws) holding it in place either from the sides near the top edge or at the bottom nearest the narrow portion of the cover.

Sometimes the fan cowl bezel is fastened using screws at the point nearest the motor shaft.

There could also be a trim ring that needs to be gently pryed off from the edge nearest the ceiling, so you can gain access to the screws that are holding the cowl in place on the mounting plate. There are usually 2 sets of 2 screws placed 180 degees apart from each other that secure the cowl in place.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Cover does not attach to the universal bracket I purchased


Buy a drill and drill bit and make a hole in the bracket where needed. To make installation easier, use a larger that needed drill bit and add washer to screw, won't look as professional but you are not a professional anyway. Who goes around looking at ceiling fan mounts anyway???
