Don't know which brand ceiling fab you have, but almost all mount the same way. You have completed most of what needs to be done. So, now you need to remove the ceiling cowl, that slides up and down on the down rod. There should be 2-3 screws in the top outer edge of the cowl. If you remove those, the cowl will slide down the rod. After that, unscrew the wiring nuts, that connect the fan's wiring to the house wiring. Don't forget to disconnect the copper ground wire, too. Then the ball on the end of the down rod shaft can be lifted out of the ceiling bracket.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DISCONNECT ANY WIRES UNTIL THE CIRCUIT BREAKER FOR THAT CEILING OUTLET IS TURNED OFF. DON'T JUST RELY ON THE WALL SWITCH BEING OFF.

Hope this helped you in the removal of the ceiling fan. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do i take of the fan from a paslode im350+ gun ?


1) Remove the 4 bolts at the head, remove filter cap
2) Remove 2 bolts at nose holding the front assembly to the handle
3) Carefully pull the nose out and down to separate the cylinder and handle.
4) Remove fan blade - there is a very small torx screw on the fan blade
5) Remove the 3 screws holding the fan motor in and pull the motor straight out
Inside the cylinder head where the fan motor sits is a plastic spacer - if your fan kit does not come with a new one don't forget to take it out and reinstall it in the new head.

How do you remove a canopy cover from a Hampton Bay fan?


Turn off the circuit breaker supplying power to the ceiling fan. The circuit breaker is in your home electrical box and may control more than just the ceiling fan. Place a stepladder under the Hampton Bay fan.


Remove the light bulbs and light covers from the fixture, if you have a light assembly on your ceiling fan. Remove the screws securing the light assembly housing to the fan with a Phillips screwdriver. Lower the light assembly, and hold it in one hand.


Twist counterclockwise the wire nuts securing the wires for the ceiling fan and light assembly, using your free hand to separate the wires. Lower the light assembly from the fan and set it in a safe place.


Turn the screws securing the fan blades to the unit with a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the blades from the fan and set them aside. Find the screws securing the canopy to the ceiling mounting plate. Loosen the screws two complete revolutions. Turn the canopy counterclockwise and unhook it from the screws. Slide the canopy over the fan motor housing and away from the fan.



Ask a helper to hold the fan motor housing if you have a Hampton Bay fan with a down rod. Slide the canopy over the down rod until it rests on top of the motor housing. Disconnect the fan wires from the ceiling wires, twisting the plastic wire caps counterclockwise. Slide the hangar ball, at the top of the down rod, out of the mounting bracket. Slide the canopy over the top of the down rod to remove it from the fan.

Move existing ceiling fan to another location


make sure light switch is off.
start by unscrewing the fan blades. take out bulbs and bulb covers etc.
once all thats down the fan and light switch cover has three screws you can take out and unplug it to get it out of the way. look around the base for some more screws to take out and remove the big cover thats covering the motor. get it out of the way. now you will see the bracket thats holding the motor in place. remove them screws and bolts, but be careful and ready, the motor is heavy, and as it comes down, normally hamptom bay has a coat hanger type hook that will let you hook the hanging motor on the hook long enuff to disconnect the wires ONE AT AT TIME and then put the wire nut back on it just for safety. when they are all disconnected , you can un hang the motor , and then inspect the new fan bracket, it probably fits the same hanger. but if not, you need to take the bracket motor hangar down and get the wires out of it. if the light switch is off IT WONT SHOCK YOU. just dont touch the bare wires to your hands ANYWAY. if they touch each other thats ok. IF THE WALL SWITCH IS OFF. ok now its removed.

    My fan stopped working. I need just the motor/fan blade assembly which I removed from the housing. Can I get that part only.


    You can replace the motor only .... yes.
    You may get some new bolts with that, too.

    Any auto parts store has the fan motor.. ($20)

    If you have trouble removing the fan blade from the motor, the store will remove it for you (free).

    Hope this helps!

    Hampton Bay model 11420 52 inch fan did not come with any instructions.


    If the fan and light assembly are fully assembled, all you've got to do is connect the original wires to their respective(white,black and uncoated copper ground) wires. Then mount your motor/light assembly using the proper supplied harware. Next you just put on the fan blades, connect each one with the three screws to the bracket. Do the same for the other two,three or four blades. and attach them to the motor assembly. P.S. When you are attaching the fan blades, make sure the side that faces down is correctly positioned and that it matches all the rest. If this blad is to be operated using the pull cords you're all set. If the fan is mounted too high up and it is not remote controlled then you'll have to purchase a special three speed wall switch for it. In the latter case you would leave the fan speed on high on the unit itself.

    Removing fan blades


    Joey Temal is right. After removing any small metal retaining clips (which are obvious and easily removed), you have to pull down ridiculously hard to get the fan blade off. Alternate short jerky pulls with steady downward traction.

    Motor problem


    hi,

    I wrote to a person earlier about oiling one, now Im thinking she may be having the same problem you have, I will paste that info at the bottom, but sounds like your fan blade assembly has come loose and/or worked its way back down to the motor, study the fan blade assembly and look for an allen bolt or ring holding the assembly to the shaft, remove the ring or loosen the allen bolt , adjust the fan blade assembly so it doesent bind, oil the motor with regular 10w40 motor oil and dust the fan, these are good little fans and that company has been making those since the40's, also sending user guide link.

    A console humidifier that fails to humidify a room could have a bad humidistat, fan switch or float switch--problems that take specialized equipment to diagnose. But before you call in a pro, it's worth your time to test the fan motor and float assembly, since repairing them is something you can handle on your own. Testing and fixing the fan Steps: 1. Test the fan motor. While the machine is plugged in and full of water, turn both the humidistat knob and fan-control knob to high. If the fan hums but does not turn, or turns slowly, the motor needs to be replaced. If the fan won't move, you may have a bad switch somewhere. Call a professional. 2. To replace a bad fan motor, unplug the machine and disconnect the fan wires from the switch panel. You may have to pry apart a plug, use needle-nose pliers to pull the connectors off the switch, or unscrew the connectors. 3. Remove the old motor from its housing, using a Phillips screwdriver or a nut driver and socket. 4. Remove the fan blade from the motor. Use adjustable pliers to open the spring clamp at the center of the fan blade, and then slip the clamp off. Use a flathead screwdriver to gently pry off the blade, then set it aside. 5. Take the motor to an appliance store to buy a replacement. 6. Install the fan blade on the new motor, then install the motor and reattach the wires. Testing and fixing the float assembly Steps: 1. Locate the empty tank float assembly. This assembly consists of a switch, a connecting rod (on some units) and some type of float. It's supposed to shut down the machine when the water reservoir is low, but if the float jams in the down position, the dehumidifier won't turn on. 2. Check the float and connecting rod, if there is one. If the parts are bent and touching the cabinet, use gentle hand pressure to straighten them so they move freely. If your dehumidifier has a float switch that is triggered by the filter housing moving up and down, make sure the housing is centered in its tracks and moves freely. Clean any debris and dirt out of the channels, using a scrub brush. 3. Check that the float connecting rod is contacting the float switch. If it isn't, bend the end of the rod so it touches the switch.
