• Step 1 As the exclusive retailer for Hampton Bay ceiling fans, Home Depot offers a lifetime warranty on them. Therefore, if your Hampton Bay ceiling fan breaks or fails and it's not your fault, the easiest solution will usually be to return the fan to Home Depot for a replacement under the warranty. This is a great deal, and you should take advantage of it.
• Step 2 If, however, you prefer to repair the fan yourself rather than exchange it for a new one, you can get replacement parts. The easiest way is to drive to your local Home Depot store, where you probably bought the fan, and ask them to order for you. Home Depot also has a customer service line (1-800-654-0688) that you can call if you don't want to go to the store to order the parts, and the Hampton Bay Company has its own customer service number (1-877-527-0313) where you can also find parts for their products.

    Hi! No, I was not able to go to Home Depot yet coz I'm a bit hesitant. My problem is I no longer have the receipt as proof of purchase nor the box coz it's been 2 yrs. ago already. So, I don't know what to do yet. Will that be a problem for me at Home Depot? Thanks for your advice.

    Hi,
    That should not be a problem , they should be able to pull the account details through the manufacturer serial number. Other place you can get support would be from the following website

If you pulled the chain hard then it must have broken the internal connector.And the fan will not start.Many users face this problem as the chain gets pulled bit hard and internally it breaks down. it's most likely the switch has failed
also somtimes the switches stick they stick in the on or off position
try pulling the chain and listen for the usual click if no click noise then switch is stuck. if click is there start look at the wires failing that replace the switch . There is no fuse for the fan except the capacitor on the fan motor internally.The house line to which the fan is connected.That must be having circuit breaker or fuse.but no fuse in fan any where. Thanks. Keep updated for any more query. You can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

Try turning the fan on with the cord, then see if the remote will operate it, if not the remote signal reciever in the fan is defective

Ive got an Electrolux powerglide pet vacuum cleaner. The rollers don,t turn and it don,t suck anything. It is only one month old but i lost my receipt.


Lucky, It would help to know when the rollers aren't turning. If they don't turn when the handle is in the upright position, that may be correct. Many of the newer upright vac's have a switch that turns the brushroll off when the handle is in the up position, so that it won't set and run in one spot of the carpet while you do overhead cleaning with the wand and hose. If it's not turning when the handle is down the belt might be broken, or just have jumped off the motor spindle that turns it, or, if it's one that has options for the brushroll function, the switch that controls that function may be malfunctioning, (broken). The last possibility that I can think of is that there may be some carpet cord, thread or rope, string, etc, wrapped around the brush roll to the extent that it can't turn anymore. If you could get me a model number I might be able to look it up and get a schematic for it which could give us more info. Send to (fixitcr63@yahoo.com)

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

Changing frequency on a remotely operated Hampton Bay Celing fan


Remove battery from remote and you should see 4 small switches. Write down the pattern they are in now. Then move them to a new pattern. Then take the bezel off of the fan (where the fan connects to the ceiling). Turn the bezel counterclockwise if you don't see any screws holding it on. Now look for a set of switches that look the same as the switches in the remote. Write down their current pattern. Now Set the switches to a similar pattern as you set on the remote. If the remote doesn't work after adjusting, set them back to original positions from the notes you kept. Good luck

The brush wont rotate on my windtunnel vac but it still has suction. Could this be a broken belt?


Yep - that's usually the culprit if the brush stops turning. However, pull off the skid plate (bottom panel) and make sure you haven't picked up any string or some other obstruction that's wrapped itself around the brush & stopped it from turning. Things like hair/string don't always end up in the bag/bin sometimes if they're long enough they just wrap themselves around the brush.

You will need to pull the roller out and clean it. I think some of the strings are tangle up at the end of this roller. (Most rollers will come apart at the end for cleaning.) Make sure that the strings are not tangle up on the belt pulley as well. I hope this will help you.

A piece of string / cord has wrapped around my Kenmore spinning brush end on the 12 Amp Power - Mate. How is the best way to get the cord off?


Cut the string with a knife or scissors and pull it off. You can turn the brush manually to ensure you get it all.

I have cleaned & cleaned this thing! It runs for about 2 mins & stops, says "Clean Brushes"! and now it's very noticeable it's not picking up well... but is picking up a bit. I take the dust bin...


Ok, this is a "Brush Height Adjustment" issue. It will probably work great on a hard surface but on carpet the brushes bog. If you've taken the unit apart already...Sorry....do it again. When you do, you'll see a String which allows the brushes to "Float" on different surface heights. Loosen the screw a little and pull a bit more string through. Re Tighten the screw and put it together enough for a test run. Now reset the roomba.To reset the Roomba, power the Roomba on, and press the Spot, and Dock buttons together for at least 8 seconds. Until it plays a tune. The clock, and any schedule is erased at this time. Try running the Roomba with the dust bin removed to see the brushes spin easier.

Second method, is taking off the bottom cover, and removing the battery. While it's removed, and not plugged into the charger, press the clean button for at least 20 seconds. This will erase the memory. Replace battery, and cover. Run the Roomba to see if the brushes start to spin. You can also remove the brush housing by removing the 4 screws and reseating it, to see if it was a bad connection, since you have the bottom cover off.

White & grey model Roomba is moving much slower on carpet since I replaced battery and filter, but moves normal speed on linolium. How do I fix this?


You need to adjust the "Brush Height String" The new battery is a bit heavier than the old ( by 10 ounces if you got the new battery) dis assemble the roomba and you will see a string attached to a screw which allows the brushes to rise and fall with different surfaces. Move the string 1/4 " and re tighten the screw. Good to go!
