If there is a bowl looking thing that is attached to the ceiling, that should be unscrewed (PLEASE NOTE WHEN DOING THIS TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE FAN VIA BREAKER!) It'll come down and you will see the wiring, un-do the wiring (it is color coded so you can put in a new one pretty easy). there will be a cup and a socket that is holding the fan in place, gently lift the fan up and out of the socket. there you go.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

Is it easy to change our the receiver for Hampton Bay fans

Yes it is not that hard to replace an existing receiver with a new one. Caution: Turn off the power to the fan at the service panel. Remove the cover next to the ceiling which normally will have screws on the side or on the bottom under a plastic cover you remove by turning or pulling off. Inside the mounting bracket you will see the receiver. Carefully pull it out and take notice of how the wires from the receiver are connected and how the receiver was placed inside the mount. Look at the dip settings on the old receiver and set the new receiver exactly the same. The transmitter and receiver dip settings must be the same or it will not work so it is critical the new receiver settings are set exactly as the one you are removing. Now, remove one wire nut at a time and connect the new receiver exactly as the old one was connected. Make sure to tighten the wire nut securely with no bare wires showing. Slightly pull on the wires to make sure they are secure. Tape this up with electrical tape as a security measure. Once you get all the wires connected put the receiver back inside the mount just like it was. Replace the cover and then go turn the power back on. You are done.

Do you want to sell your Covington Ceiling fans? I may be interested in purchasing them. If you live in Atlanta, I could remove the old ceiling fans and install your new ones if you need.

Hampton bay glass shade broke model no. 640-658

good luck cutrite , Hampton Bays importer King of Fans in Fl prob wont even know what your talking about they don't speak English very good. If you speak Chinese you might have a chance but if the part is over a year old..'forget about it' as we would say... they don't stock old parts (over a year) and everything is manufactured in China. Try a local lighting store you'll save yourself a lot of aggravation. And don't patronize Hampton Bay it only encourages them to push garbage on us all.

3-speed switch replaced with hampton bay switch. Only low speed works.

The cause to the problem was replacing a HUNTER fan switch with a Hampton Bay switch. Before removing the old switch, I noted and marked the color and position of the 4 wires. I then duplicated the connections to the new switch.

But the wire positions of Hampton Bay vs Hunter are not identical, therefore 2 wires
were crossed.

The correct way is to note the color of the wires with the corresponding NUMBER
marked on the switches, then duplicate this on the new one.

Fan switch chain broke.

There are two types of switch for Hampton Bay fans.

One is a single-layer switch, which has all four holes on one level.

The other is a double-layer switch, which has holes in two circles, one on a higher level, and one on a lower level.

Whichever type your fans has, is the type you need to get as a replacement. Be sure to mark the old wires before removing them from the old switch, so you'll know where they go in the new switch.

I hope this helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!
