Hampton Bay ceiling fan removal
Asked May 5, 2006, 10:31 AM
We have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan in our house (installed before we moved in).
We want to move it to another room and are having trouble dismounting it
From it's current location. We lowered the disk that contains the two light
Bulb sockets and see a nut on a hollow shaft with wires through it coming down
From above. Loosening the nut is the only apparent way I see to continue
It's dismount. The nut seems to be "stuck" on the shaft, I can not even budge
It with a "vice grip".
Are we on the right track for it's dismount ?
Is the shaft somehow treated so the nut cannot be easily removed (I seem to
Recall this with "Hunter") ?
Any suggestions on how to remove the nut ?
We can send pic's if needed
