Question about Dryers

1 Answer

We want to replace our bathroom exhaust fan. We like the Harbor Breeze 'Rosemont' model at Lowes. It's a decorative combo fan/light unit. The unit is equipped with 2 13 watt (60 Watt incandesant equivilent) Pin Base (GU24) CFL's. I want to control the unit with a motion sensor. The Lowes guy says not to do this as the CFLs are not designed to be used with a dimmer or sensor. Lowes does not have dimmable CFL's with the proper base. So my question is, does dimmable CFL's with this GU24 base arrangement exists and if so, where can I find them? Thanks very much for any help.

It does not matter whether you turn on the switch or the switch is motion
activated, the light does not know who turns it on.

The switch must be designed for florescent.

What do you mean by proper base, you have a single gang wall box,
that's a box inside the wall, with the electric and a switch,
The gang could be single or hold 5 switches, which ever is installed.

Most all switches fill fit into any gang box.

Need a Harborbreze globe for our 52" Summit Polished Brass Ceiling Fan. Tried Lowes and don't have them.


Fixya does not sell Harbor Breeze parts. Rather curious that Lowe's cannot supply the globe because Harbor Breeze is a "house" brand.

I have a broken ceiling fan blade arm for Harbor Breeze Model #OM52-5B/Q1M (outdoor fan). Can I get a replacement arm or do I have to buy a whole new fan?


you will have to get 3 (4) blades as they have to be exactly the same
At this point I would advise a new fan because the settings of the blades have to be exact or it will wobble all over the place
to explain even with a new unit, the fan blades have to be measured from a fixed surface ( normally the ceiling
each tip of the blade has to be the same distance and the front and back of the blade measurements at the tip have to be the same on all blades
If you get it right the fan will spin without any movement

I broke a shade on my harbor breeze lighthouse II ceiling fan, will you find the model number so I can order one?


Wrong way round, YOU tell us the model number and type and we tell you where to get the shade. You can see the fan in your house, but we can't. That makes it really difficult for us. Some shades are plain, some are fluted, some have patterns.

All is not lost though. Go here and take your pick. They all sell them including Harbour Breeze themselves..

I need to replace the remote, uc 7067rya


What make/model do you have? Sounds like a Hampton Bay (Home Depot) or Harbor Breeze (Lowes) if you only paid $119.00.

My harbor breeze ceiling fan transmitter is staying lit , and doesn't control the fan or light correctly


Transmitter or receiver OR both need replaced. That's a low-end store brand for LOWES only. Remember, you get what you pay for.

I need to find a light kit for a harbor breeze


You should be able to pick these up at Lowes if I'm not mistaken. I just bought a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan from there and saw the light kits around the same area. I also believe that, you dont necessarily have to get a Harbor Breeze light kit and that some are interchangeable.Hope this helps some.
