you can submerge it into a bath tub filled with wd40 if you want to....provided the ONLY thing wrong is a squealing shorted motor windings, right? It is hard to get oil into these bushings because of close tolerances and dust shields that hide the bushings. try it anyway...these motors are non-copper contacting magnetic induction driven, so near zero chance of spark-induced wd40 flame-up.

My Hampton Bay ceiling fan has been making a sound - like a clicking noise - during every revolution of the fan, and at each of the 3 different speeds ever since it was installed.

Try a bit of chewing gum on each of the blades separately, it seems to be out of balance.By trying each individually and turning on each time you should find the imbalance.Cheers Michael....Australia

How do I change the light bulb in a model 66266

It twists off counterclock wise. If that doesn't work, try spraying some WD-40 around the glass. Wipe off excess oil.

The fan is making a "scratching" noise.

Hi steffmarin...
The scratching noise is one of two problems.
1.noisy fan bearings, cannot be lubricated, must be replaced (big job), or replace fan....
2. Plastic/rubber bearing up near the ceiling...the fan will be connected to it.
Sometimes when they get dry they get noisy.
You can spray the plastic/rubber bearing with a little WD-40 and it will hold the noise quite for a sure to "wiggle" the fan around after spraying to distribute the WD-40) evenly.
If your noise problem is this then problem solved.
Please take time to rate me

Getting lubrication into a ceiling fan is very difficult unless you take it apart, take it down and then turn it upside down.... Then spray WD-40 in around wwhere the fan blades hook up at. Then let it set for at least a couple of hours to let the lubricant work its way into the bearing. Turn it a bit and spraying more in every fifteen minutes or so will help to get it in there better.

Similar problem: Does Hampton Bay Vaulted Ceiling Mount exist?

Ok so here is the deal. No there does not seem to be a Hampton Bay specific mount. The mount that comes standard in most of the Hampton Bay fans can handle the angle of most standard (read: small) angles. I do not know if it will be the case with all Hunter products, but the adapter for the Hunter fan that I replaced, worked with my new Hampton Bay. So now, I have from the downrod up is from the original Hunter fan. Hope this helps.

Fan makes noise like it needs to be oiled.

No way to oil it. It is a sealed unit. Give it a small spray of WD40 that should relieve it. And will not hurt anything.
