    I am actually trying to mount the plate to the electrical box and I can not screw the two screws into the outer most holes in the electrical box since there is on a small piece of wood on one side.....this is some new mounting for Hunter fans. Not the typical mounting where you have the bracket and slip the ball/rod into the mounting? I am lost

You must absolutly have a better support system than what you describe.

You may have to install a support bracket.

Please see this article for existing home installation of a support system.

You need to cut a bigger wood and if there's no hole on the other end, you need to use an electric or battery drill to create another hole on 4 ends to make it tight.

Look at your fan. most of the time your fan will have 2-4 screwes in the top of the fan. on the plate the holes you are regarding to may have a big end sliding down to a small end... if this is what it looks like than the outer holes are for the fan to sit into... take the plate down and put it on top of the fan like it would be if it was hanging and see if the screwes in the top of the fan match up with the ones in the plate. if so than you onyl need to the 2 screwes to hold the plate. the other holes are to hold the fan in place on the plate.

    also if you can not put the screwes into the out part of the plate and make then go into wood than take a screwes and put the plate in place. after that scrwes the screws into the cieling at all 4 spots.. once that is done take them back out... they have what are called drywall insertes. they are a plastic tube with threads inside.. get 4 of thoses and put them into the ceiling. after that put the plate back up and put the 4 screws into the dry wall inserts. also put the 2 scrwes into the ceiling beem or peice of wood for extra support.... than go ahead with the instructions.

Put a small piece of card board between the mounting bracket and the celing/outlet box. this will dampen the noise, and hopefully fix your problem.

Receiver installation issue


Most of these fans locate the receiver on the mounting plate (metal part fixed to electrical box where ball hangs). The canopy (decorative part that covers the wiring on ceiling's electrical box) has enough space to hide it. I presume you're missing the manual, so install the fan and slip the receiver in the plate, right between the electrical box and the ball, everything's color coded, securely wire cables from ceiling to power cables in receiver and cables from the receiver to the fan. Slide canopy up and securely fasten with provided screws. Good luck!

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.

Removing the ceiling mount from the ceiling of a hampton ceiling


Sometimes there is a small trim piece where the canopy meets the ceiling that "snaps" into place and rather than turning to unlock it needs to be gently pryed off. If you have a small trim piece that makes more than about 1/8 of a turn without unlocking. that is definately what you have.

It slides in above right above the ball, in the mounting bracket where the canopy is. You may have to kind of encourage it to go in there, and you will need to push wiring off to the sides and out of the way to help it have clearance to get in there.

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.

Make sure the power wires from the ceiling mount are still in the electric box. Then have them come from the side near the screw mounting area. In otherwords, not through the center hole. In the center of the black metal part - there is where you put the reciever. It will fit literally resting on the black metal.
