Re: missing fan blade
Call the factory at 1-800-295-4448, and tell them what happened. They will send you out a new set of blades, and brackets out to you. When they do come, use only the new blades. the reason why is because they are balanced at a tolerance of only a few fractions of a gram. this will keep it from wobbeling.

Good luck on that one, I needed one for a job & ended up buying a new fan, got tired of trying to find one. I'd watch for yeard sales. auctions, or even fans on sale at big chain stores like, walmart, home depot, or lowes. Not unusual to see complete fan for $20 -$30. Then use parts , or install entire fan.
I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.
It sounds like either the top part of your remote is bad, or you have a bad connection to it. Have someone that is familiar with electricity (that may be you?) check to see if there is power to the ceiling box, and fan's remote that is ususally in the ceiling box, or just under it in the cover. If you have power there, your remote is failing.
Are you talking about a Hampton Bay ceiling fan product. Is there a label stick attached to the top main housing unit that indicates the model & UPC #. If it;s a Hampton Bay...
There is a a major ceiling fan manufacturer in Fort Lauderdale FL called King of Fans (website: kingoffans.com) that deals strictly with Hampton Bay ceiling fans & parts. They are the Home Depot distributor for Hampton Bay ceiling fans. Their number is 1-800-330-3267. There is also a 1-877-527-0313 number for Hampton Bay products other than ceiling fans...
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.
Green and copper are the ground wires and I believe you can connect both these to the green wire from the fan (I only have the copper wire in the actual ceiling box). Black and Red can be treated as both black and both can be connected to the black wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked). White is the neutral wire and can be connected to the white wire from the fan (this is what I did in all my fans and it worked).
My ceiling box has the copper, red, black, and white wires. The ceiling plate for the fan I bought had a green wire. I connected the green wire from the ceiling plate and the copper wire from the ceiling box to the green wire from the fan.
