Question about Hampton Bay Sidewinder 04890 Ceiling Fan

Open Question

What kind of bulb is used for the Sidewinder fan? Description says 100 w Halogen, but the one I purchased (Philips Halogen Mini-Can, 100w) notes: "These lamps should not be used in ceiling fans".

There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

SOURCE: light bulb socket uses intermediate base bulbs, not standard bulbs

I found the solution on the web. The only place it looks like that has this adapter is voss lighting. Here is a link to the adapter. http://www.vosslighting.com/storefrontB2BWEB/itemdetail.do?action=prepare_detail&itm_id=18159&itm_index=7

SOURCE: hampton bay ceiling fan , model # 55295

I had the exact same problem. To solve it, I had a friend hold the area of the fan that the globe screws into. I wore rubber dish gloves to get a good grip and pushed up slightly on the globe as I turned counter-clockwise. My friend held the other part and turned clockwise a little as well. It took a lot of pressure for it to finally come loose and then we just turned it about another 90 degrees and the globe slips right out of the groove.

I couldn't believe how hard this was to do.

I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)

Newly installed Minka aire concept II ceiling fan is poorly lit. Installed in my son's bedroom and it's useless, dim.


probably not the reason for the dim light. It probably has more to do with the installation where you have wired the light before or after the fan so that power so the bulb is reduced by the resistance in the fan.
lights and fans are wired in parallel so that one doesn't affect the other
Might pay to talk with an electrician on the issue
There is a limit on the size of the bulb that can be used and a 100 watt halogen bulb will probably melt the surrounds and set fire to the fitting
get a desk lamp for his homework

BULB REPLACEMENT


I spoke with Harbor Breeze and finally received the answer. To get to the bulb, you need to push up slightly on the glass globe only. Not the metal ring around the glass. Then a slight turn counter-clockwise will allow the glass to drop down. It's a short 100W halogen bulb that's readily available at the hardware store. Also, in case you call Harbor Breeze, the item number for the LGF fan is #77461.

I have a model 763RLN where the instructions indicate a max.100W bulb but does not indicate the type of bulb. Is it a special type ?


That is possible,but usually they refer to a regular incondescent bulb with a filament.Screw in type.
You may use a CFL in there,easily. 27 W.
Warm white or cool white one.
100 W. bulbs should be not available,soon.

How do you remove and replace an R7s halogen light bulb from its housing.? It looks like it shoul just push in at one end and release at the other, but does not seem to move far enough. Don't want to break...


Usually one side of the housing is fix, the other can be moved about 3-7mm. The whole ceramic body holding one sight of the bulb:

However different manufacture may have different designs, but this one is pretty common.

Me too. I went back to Home Depot. They gave to me the phone number for Hampton Bay - 1-877-527-0313. I will call them tomorrow after they open to see what the deal is. it looks to me like the JDE11 is a mini-candelabra base. The lady in the fans at Home Depot said that all of the light kits were changing to the smaller based halogen lights. BUT, you'd think that they'd carry the light bulbs that have to go in the light kits they sell!!!
