Question about Heating & Cooling
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.

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.
