Cannot stop the ceiling fan from wobbling. Have
you still have a blade that is out of balance. mesure each blade from the bottom side end to the celing in one spot. Do this for each blade when you find the one that is closest to the celing then you have to place the wheight on the edge of that blade then spin it to make the right adjustment then seta stick on weight where the temp. weight is at

I have had a hampton bay antigua plus 56
Try not to take that person serious. I would tighten the screws on the brackets around the fan. Only a phillips screw driver needed for this task. The blades on mine are hardened wood.lol.
However, the problem I have is with finding a replacement bracket:
I found that Hampton Bay is a wholly owned subsidiary of Home Depot (look it up). That being said, I contacted Home Depot and the associate had no protocol in getting me in a better direction.
The problem I have is the lacking of integrity shown by Home Depot in this particular situation. I knew nothing about Hampton Bay ceiling fans being that of a subsidiary onto Home Depot. I am a potential customer to the Depot but, will attempt to research all methods possible to save myself an unnecessary trip to flirt with possibility of a non-fitting universal bracket. BALLS!!!

Ceiling fan power
It sounds like the fan motor has blown out. Is this an old fan? The motors do burn out every 5-10 years, depending on the brand and quality of motor.

The best place to find that is back at Home Depot...you may be able to match it up at a local electrical supply house, but usually they are a forgien made cap and are not readily accessible to the consumer in the states...

Two days ago my hampton
DO NOT USE THIS FAN. disconnect if possible.
any spark, smoke and popping noises from any electrical items MUST be treated as highly suspect and a possible fire risk, until professionally tested and given the all clear.
it may just be a few bits of dust burning off, but it MUST be checked before you can assume it is safe.
sparks and smoke with a little dust or grease can cause a fire.
i AM trying to frighten you into doing something rapidly, as this could be a serious fire risk, and must be considered dangerous until tested and proven to be safe.
i would not be doing my job responsibly if i did not make this point absolutely clear

Remove ceiling cover plate of Hampton Bay Antigua.
you will need a ladder and a screwdriver/phillips a couple wire nuts or
electrical tape.at the "top" of the fan you will see a bowl shaped
cover it will have usually no more than two screws in it..loosen or
remove those screws to access the fan hanger inside.once you get that
far inside you will see several wires .undo each wire seperatly and
cover with a wire nut or electrical tape(please make sure your power is
off to that circuit) once you have unhooked all the wires from the fan
and secured them out of the way. lift the fan out of the hanger itself
(sometimes it is easier to remove each blade from the motor housing
before removing the fan from its hanger ) those screws can be found at
the base of each blade on the motor housing..If you are moving or adding
a cieling light be sure to remove both parts of the fan hanger..the
second part will still be attached to the cieling..usually two screws
holding it into place..if just replaacing the fan,,you can sometimes
leave the second part there and hang the new fan with it..
look carefully there are screws somtimes with a grommet or paint as these were built in factorys all over the world and are very inconsistent if you rrally cant find screws and it will twist it is always left
left is loose right is tight
lefty loosy righty tighty lol
my grandad taught me that one i always remember

Where can i order a new motor for this model
Check this response from 2008 for same model fan. By resorrowsr on Oct 26, 2008
stopped Turning - Removed fan to check all the connections. All the
connections were good. When you turn the fan on, you can hear a humming
sound. If you take off the blades you can spin the motor and it will
work, but will not turn on it's own.
called Home Depot customer service. I had my receipt, so they gave me
store credit for the full purchase. Since I have two fans, they wanted
to know if I wanted to replace both fans. I told them one was still
working fine, so I only replaced one. My problem was the transformer.
You could see where it had overheated and melted.

The wires for hooking this fan up are white,black
White (Neutral) White to White
Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)
Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black
Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green
If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.

Will a smaller blade on a ceiling fan cause
Interesting situation.. not many people want to down-size a fan. Anyway, reducing the size of the fan blade shouldn't cause a problem - as long as the pitch or angle of the blade remains the same or is less than the original. Increasing the angle with a smaller blade could actually move MORE air than what the motor was designed to do - resulting in overloading and shortening the motor's life in the best case scenario. Worst case scenario - well, anything for electric devices in a worst case scenario usually involves fire, burns and even death (though not likely to happen).
Prior to starting, make sure all the blades are the same in every way including: length, width, angle and weight. A warped blade can cause wobble, too. Stand on a ladder and spin the fan by hand. Look for a blade that is tipped up or hangs lower than the others. Make adjustments as needed to correct (it may not be possible to correct a warped blade - so be forewarned). If any of the variables listed in the first sentence of this paragraph are different from those of the other blades, wobble and motor noise will result. Neither condition should be allowed to exist longer than absolutely necessary. You can minimize these effects by operating the fan at a slower speed. Generally, the blades should be pretty close in all of these variables - but a wobbly fan indicates an imbalance. Weights placed on fan blades can help correct wobble - but can be tricky to determine which blade is the cause.
