Question about Air Conditioners

Open Question

I have a fan hampton bay ceiling fan, model # 284-411 (or so it says on the manual, but it looks a bit different)and there are no screws on the upper canopy to remove it. one of the difference i noticed was the edges of the motor are flat in the picture and rounded (where the motor halves are attached together) on mine. need to access the remore up there to replace it. the upper cover looks smooth all the way around but does have a plate that pops off at the bottom with three "pins" on it that push up into the lower part as a trim piece. there are also three notches in between each of the snap holes but apparently they do nothing. the fan shaft floats free like it should of all this. seems there should be the screws at the top edge near the ceiling but their aren't. i've tried turning and prying of it to no avail. there is a trim piece on the ceiling above it that the canopy holds tight. help!

As long as you have the remote and the receiver that go in the top it will work

Most light domes twist on or off or have thumb screws to loosen and lower the dome.It sounds like you removed the light kit assembly instead of the dome.Try to put back by twisting in place the light kit assembly and look for screws,or hold back on trim and turn just glass dome do not use too much force .I checked web site but can't find your model.It is unusual to not be able to just remove glass dome.Look closely at how the glass dome is positioned. If no screws are visible either the glass part unscrews or the ring unscrews allowing glass dome to be removed.Good Luck.I have installed many ceiling fans the problem is if you didn't install it your at a disadvantage.GOOD LUCK.

Dear friend! It's not lubrication problem. All motors pre-lubricated.Weaken capacitor. Replace capacitor immediately. Don't practice to spin with screw driver. It's not safety.Thanks.

Hampton bay ceiling fan broke. How to screw it back up


It already looks like it's "screwed up". ( LOL) BEFORE BEGINNING READ ALL OF THIS FIRST< PLEASE> First turn off the breaker that supplies power to the fan. Take down the whole unit up to the ceiling mounts. It looks like the wood is broken that the screw bracket used to mount the fan is on. If it is you will need to reinforce the wood and rescrew the fan mounting bracket on it. THe ball carrier from the bracket should now be secure and ready to mount the swing ball of the fan at the top of the fan unit motor. Next rewire the fan to the wires in the ceiling with the wire nuts you removed. Tighten the ball screw and push the cover plate up to the ceiling, fastening it in place with the screws provided to the ceiling plate...Done!

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.

There are 2 to 3 small screws that hold the ceiling cowl in place. Loosening and/r removing those should do the trick. The screws will be on the side of the top edge of the ceiling cowling.

I broke one of my 4 glass shades for my ceiling fan, how can I get a replacement?


Since, "Hampton Bay" is the house brand for Home Depot, your best bet is to start there. Getting an exact replacement will depend on how old your Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan is. Some glass shades and/or globes are discontinued after a few years, as the trends in shades change.

Hope this helped you.

EXCESSIVE FAN WOBBLE AT HIGH SPEED Hampton Bay Model Edisto 844 854


Two things you need to check: One or more of the fan blade irons may be loose or the ball on the end of the fan motor's mounting rod is not properly fitted into the ceiling-outlet bracket. If it only happens on high speed, I'm betting on the mounting rod ball not sitting in the ceiling bracket, properly.

Hope this helps you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

We just bought a house with a beautifiul Hampton Bay ceiling fan, however the remote is missing. Consequently, we are unable to use the fan. Is there any way to determine if the fan is operational?


Try Home Depot. They sell Hampton Bay fans. They should have replacement remotes.
Here is one that Amazon sells. If you order oline, check to see if your model number is
what the remote will control. Also return policy of the seller if it doesnt work. May be easier
to go to Home Depot with a picture of the fan, or model number if you can locate it. Remember
that you will still have to figure out what settings to set the switches to that control the channel
the remote works on. It's do-able.

you need to make sure there is not a wire loose inside the ceiling fan electrical housing you lost power somewhere they also have small electronic control boards installed in them now check for broken wires or shorts first. You will need to take the screws out at the top by the ceiling. It will be the round cover up by the ceiling with the rod coming down through the middle. Make sure to turn off power first.

There are 3 small screws holding the cover to the base of the fan located at the upper most part of the fan at the ceiling.
