    It is impossible to change a bulb. Three people have tried so far. We can twist it but it will not release.

I was just looking at these fans. One site said to use the palm of your hand to turn the light cover 1/2 trun. I can't remember which way to turn.

52" Vaxcel Fresco II Oil Burnished Bronze Finish Ceiling Fan cant change downlight


why not, cant you figure out how to change a light bulb? Look carefully at the way it is made, look for screws to remove a plastic or glass cover to get access to the downlight ,which i assume is a light that points down.
worst case senario is you have to read the owners manual under how to change the light bulb
or call up customer service and ask them how or at least how to call techinical service.
In all fairness , a down light may not be a light bulb that points down , but some kind of compact flouresent light bulb.
check if vaxcel has a web site. they might have instructions on how to change a down light bulb.

My 52" Hunter Ceiling Fan with remote has been a gem. Last week when one of the light bulbs burnt out, I replaced the bulb, and then neither of the lights (it's a 2 light bulb fan) would come on. The fan...


The two bulbs are just having a separate live cable in parallel with the one of the motor.

So since you have mentioned that you had a burned bulb this sometimes causes a short inside the receptacle of the bulb. So you just need to disassemble the receptacle of the burned bulb and check both the wires live and neutral they are loose or disconnect or even melt and disconnect.

Is a simple operation since you need to check only two wires however it not so easy to remove the bulbs and reconnect the wires.

Hi Bill. So far I have not been able to find a manual, but I will keep looking. In the mean time, if you want to give it a try, it appears to me that the circular piece that has the fingers that hold the light globe is probably put in place to hold the globe by a "turning" motion. If you were to reach up and grab this ring and gently turn it counter clock wise I bet it would turn perhaps 1-3 inches and disengage the fan body. Makes sense that the manufacturer would make it easy to change light bulbs and viewing the fan, this would be about the easiest way to do it. I would assume the glass globe is NOT fastened to this ring in any manner, so if you do decide to try this, be ready to have the glass globe release from the holding ring.
I will let you know when/if I find a manual. If you decide to try my solution and are satisfied with it, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. BTW, nice fan. Paul

It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

Changing light bulb in ceiling fan


At the top of the pull chain there is a metal piece; this is threaded on a bolt. Unscrew the metal piece and lower the globe to expose the bulbs then remove and replace the bulb(s). I recommend flourescents as they are more economical, run cooler and last linger than incandescents (regular bulbs).

New bulbs in chandelier don't work


A light bulb is not a terribly complicated thing. I think you're saying that the bulbs are OK, but they do not seem to function in some of the chandelier sockets. Is that correct?

Assuming the bulbs are not burned out, the only reason this would occur is if they are not making good electrical contact with the socket. The bulb makes contact in two places, on is the threaded base and the other is the metal contact on the base of the bulb. My guess would be they are not threading in quite right and then you're not able to screw them all the way in so the base makes electrical contact.

Before you rate this solution I hope you'll take into account that I'm not paid to do this, I'm just trying to help. I have no idea what you're reaction will be, but I'm really getting tired of getting poor ratings for trying to help...especially when I seem to be the only one who responds on a question.

Removing the globe for put bulb in


I found on mine that the bulb is held in with 3 tenshion clips. You just have to pull the globe down slowly to gain access to the light bulb.
