Re: Having problems mounting ceiling plate
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.

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!
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.
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.
1. yes, with the proper rod, longer wires(3,4) and the blades must be over 2.5 metres (8 foot) above the floor.2. you need the proper type box; the mount/s and ball; the longer wires (3,4)with slender but connertors; and especially the safety pins, etc. with the proper rod, the fan will hang straight. and about 3 chock hours to do this here task. hope this helps.
ok since you have the power off move ceiling fan box electrical box over place remote above the electrical box with the antenna sticking out replace fan power up you might have to go into attic to place the remote sensor and antenna down to outside of fan i had the same problem myself i made a cut in drywall ceiling big enough for sensor unit let the antenna hang out placed up there
i used a wall plate cut in half to match the hole i just made or you dry wall back up but if remote goes out theres now no way to get to sensor unit
little cut in drywall place sensor threw antenna hang down put plate over hole
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.
