Light blows when turned on

I have a minka cirque. Every time I put a new bulb in and turn the light on, the bulb blows. I've tried a different switch with no change. I don't see any connecting wiring issues. Fan worked well for 2 years before problem appeared. Electrical feed supplies fan in second room as well and when the fan with the problem is swittched on, the fan in the second room doesn't work. Sounds like a short. Any idea where it may be occuring and how to trouble shoot?

    I have the same problem! My switch is only for this fan/light combo, does not power any other fan in any other room, just this one. Also, the fan wobbles horribly when running.
    Any ideas? Just burned through 3 bulbs in a row!!

    the fan & night light work but the 2 bulbs will not light. Both the fan & night light are on a separate wall switch. The switch to light the two bulbs is located on a switch in the hallway.

Check the switch on the other fan and make sure the screws are tight, if they are used. If the wires are solid copper and go into holes into the back of the switch, remove them and use the screw terminals. This is done by inserting a small oject into the rectangular slot next to where the wire goes it. That will release the spring that hold the wire in, then you can remove it.

Hope this helps, and please rate my answer, good OR bad!
Good luck!!

I can not remove the glass dome to change to bulb on my Minka Aire 3 blade ceiling fan. I believe the model number is UC7084T


Push up on the glass all around to loosen it (be careful not to break). You could also spray a little WD-40 around the top of the glass. If these don't work, you might have to break the glass. Call Minka Aire @ 1-800-307-3267 and let them know the problem and they might send a replacement at no-cost.

I have lost my instructions and cannot figure out how to replace the burned out light bulb in my Minka Aire F603 ceiling fan unit; I can't figure out how to get to the bulb - can't figure out how to get...


Hi Bill. So far I have not been able to find a manual, but I will keep looking. In the mean time, if you want to give it a try, it appears to me that the circular piece that has the fingers that hold the light globe is probably put in place to hold the globe by a "turning" motion. If you were to reach up and grab this ring and gently turn it counter clock wise I bet it would turn perhaps 1-3 inches and disengage the fan body. Makes sense that the manufacturer would make it easy to change light bulbs and viewing the fan, this would be about the easiest way to do it. I would assume the glass globe is NOT fastened to this ring in any manner, so if you do decide to try this, be ready to have the glass globe release from the holding ring.
I will let you know when/if I find a manual. If you decide to try my solution and are satisfied with it, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. BTW, nice fan. Paul

Minka Aire Como F603 - Light bulb burned out


I found the Manual to the F603 in pdf format at: http://minkagroup.net/Admin/UploadFiles/F603-English.pdf It describes how to put bulbs in so it was simply a matter of reversing the instructions to get the old ones out. However, it is not that easy to get the bottom section off so one has to be careful or you will twist the whole unit instead of just the bottom part..... I think what you did was push up too hard and then turn the whole unit. Try pushing up firmly but at the same time hold some fingers (or have someone help in this) on top of the bowl above the fan blades and then twist counterclockwise an inch or two and the bottom part will release (don't let it fall). Then you have easy access to the bulbs. Good luck.

I currently have 2 switches on the wall for a ceiling fan(this was pre-installed when I bought my new home, but my Minka


The red and white should be hot all the time for the fan to run even when the light is not in use. The black and white wires are used for the switch on the wall to turn the light on. Hope this helps.

Minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement


The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

This may not apply. There could be an electrical problem. But if you installed the bulb with your hand, the oil on your skin can cause the buld to heat excessively and fail. I suggest you use the packaging or part of it when installing it, taking great care not to touch it.
