Ceiling Fan Replacement Globes 4

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    what is the name of the lightbulb covers on ceiling fans?
    im trying to get replacement covers for the bulbs, but i cant look it up properly on google. im sick of ugly white glass! also if you know any cheap places that have varieties of them?

    • ANSWER:
      They are called globes. They come in quite a variety of styles. Also the part of the globe that attaches to the fan(called the fitter) come in different sizes and styles. If it attaches with screws, the size of the fitter is 2-1/4". Some are held in with a screw collar. About the cheapest will be at the big box stores. The best selections will be through Lighting Showrooms.

  2. QUESTION:
    What factors cause incandescent bulbs to burn out faster?
    I know that voltages too high or too low can shorten the life span on incandescent bulbs. I also know that vibrations (wall shaking) makes a big difference. I am an electrician and I have been asked this question on numerous occasions and these are the only two answers I have, but I am sure there are more.

    • ANSWER:
      1. High Voltage in the Home
      If the supply voltage to your home is too great, bulbs will generally burn brighter and burn out much faster. To find out, use a volt meter and check the voltage in an outlet or at the service panel. Usually you'll like to see a voltage of 115 - 125 volts. Anything more is considered excessive and the utility company should be called to correct the problem.

      2. Excessive Fixture Vibrations
      Another cause of bulbs burning out is excessive fixture vibration. A good example of this is a ceiling fan in your home that also incorporates lighting on the unit. When a fan blade becomes unbalanced, the fan starts to shake. This vibration jiggles the filament in the bulb and will lead to shorter bulb life. You can try a rough service bulb to correct this problem.

      3. Bulb Doesn't Light
      If a bulb doesn't light even after you've changed the bulb, it's likely that one of the following is the trouble. Be sure that the cord on your desk lamp hasn't come unplugged from the receptical. Check the cord to see if perhaps the cord is damaged. If so, install a new cord. Don't just tape the cord and cause yourself problems in the future. It is also possible that the outlet or the switch controlling the outlet is defective or broken. Check for voltage and replace if necessary.

      Bulbs have also been known to be loose in the socket. If so, tighten the bulb to correct the problem.

      4. The Replacement Bulb Won't Light Either
      The bulb itself could be the problem. Sometimes, cheaper bulbs will have little or no solder on the contact point of the bulb. These bulbs will cause you problems and wo't last very long. Just because you have a package of four bulks and installed a new one, doesn't mean that the bulb isn't decfective. Try inserting the bulb in another fixture to verify it's operation. Do yourself a favor and buy a little more expensive bulb that will give you your money's worth.

      5. The Bulb Flickers
      When a bulb is loose in the socket it can flicker on and off. Simply tighten the bulb to correct the problem. Another problem may be a loose wire connection. Check the connection on the fixture after turning the power off first. Contacts in the center of the socket can get worn or corroded and cause you a lot of headaches. In this case, change the socket.

      6. Circuit Breakers Tripped or Fuses Blown
      If the circuit isn't working due to a tripped breaker or blown fuse, then there is likely a short circuit. The cord may be shorted, a plug could be defective, or the light socket is shorted or defective. In any of these cases, replace the defective parts before restting the breaker or replacing a fuse.

      7. Overheated or Burnt Bulb
      Open the fixture globe or cover and check to see if the bulb wattage is too large for the fixture. on the side of the fixture is a label that states the appropriate maximum size wattage of bulb to use in the fixture. Yes, a larger size bulb usaually will screw right into the socket, but that is where the trouble begins. Using a larger bulb will cause excessive heat inside the globe and cause the fixture to overhet. Due to the exceesive heat, the bulb life will be much less and will likely show signs of trouble. To correct this, use the appropriate size bulb.

      The area where the bulb is in contact with or close proximity to the fixture insulation will likely show signs of this heat.

      8. Can Light Turns On and Off
      The area in an attic around a can light can be covered up by insulation and cause improper air circulation for heat in a fixture. This too will cause short bulb life. Be sure that there is appropriate space between the can light and attic insulation to correct this problem. You can build a box around the can light to allow for appropriate space.

    Need Help identifying a ceiling fan so I can buy a replacement globe...?
    All I have is a picture of the fan, here it is

    http://img411.imageshack.us/img411/9431/fane.jpg

    • ANSWER:
      I think you'll be hard pressed to find a replacement globe by itself. You might have to buy a whole new fan or at least the light kit. I had a similar problem where I broke a small alabaster globe on a ceiling fan I got from Lamps Plus. I still even had the box it came in and, when I contacted them, they said I would at least have to buy a new light kit to get a new globe (there were 4 small globes on the fan). The light kit cost , but I really had no choice.

  4. QUESTION:
    Need help with painting studio lighting - daylight balance without glare?
    I am setting up a home paint studio. The room already has a light fixture - a ceiling fan that I would like to keep. I replaced the incandescent bulbs with daylight-spectrum (6500 k) compact fluorescent bulbs to have more balanced light in the room.

    But I am having a problem with glare on the canvas. I do oil painting. The ceiling fan has open light covers (not globes). I looked for replacement light covers but the ones on this fixture seem to be a non-standard size (neck size 3 and 1/4 inches).

    Now I am looking for a compact fluorescent bulb in daylight temperature (6500 k) that is frosted or covered. I can't find one however. Please post a link if you know of a good one that can be purchased from a reputable on-line store or national chain.

I've been an iPhone user since the first generation of iPhone, and I still remember Microsoft executives laughing during an interview mocking the 0 launch price of the iPhone. They claimed no one would be willing to fork out that kind of cash for a phone. No one including Steve Jobs could've expected the iPhone to catch up the leading phone manufacturing companies at that time and completely evolutionize the mobile industry in the process. If I was given a choice to pick out one thing that made the iPhone what it is today, it would have to be the App Store. Of course the iOS UI was great and the Touch was basically flawless in comparison to other touch phones on the market during that time, but the App store and the multitude of apps available on it simple tipped the scale in Apple's favor.

Look at the domination of Sony in the PS2 era, it wasn't the hardware that made it the most selling console in that generation, but the sheer quality of the games line-up available for the console, apparently it still sells well in many countries across the globe. The free iPhone games, the free iphone apps and the tons of quality paid apps available on the App store is just staggering, the developers love it because Apple users are more vulnerable to spending on the App store than let's say an Android user. I still remember playing Pappyjump, an amazing free iPhone game which took advantage of Apple's Gyroscope and was a great time-killer.

It's simply very hard for other companies to catch up now, apart from Android which is a worthy competitor unlike Microsoft's Windows Phone or Nokia's Mobi OS who seem clueless and have failed miserably in spite of having huge backers. So, is this just a phase of good times for Apple or will it rule the mobile market for another good decade. Only time will tell, what's in store for Apple, but the mighty have fallen in the past by either getting casual or users just getting bored of what they have to offer.

Ceiling Fan Replacement Shade

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. QUESTION:
    Ceiling fan light doesnt work....(its not the bulbs its the pull chain) How to fix?
    Our ceiling fan worked great last month. we often run the fan but keep the ligth off till dark, using the pull chain to turn it on and off. Now when the fan is on and the switch is on on the wall...the light wont work. pulling on the chain doesnt result in the familiar click that turns the light on....why doesnt it click on anymore? What can we do to fix it ourselves? any help is great! we miss the light at suppertime!

    • ANSWER:
      You can buy a replacement pull chain at most haedware stores.IT IS NOT HARD AT ALL..The switch will only have 2 wires on it.With the power off just take apart and replace..

      Before you begin working on your ceiling fan, make sure you turn the power off. If your fan is powered by a wall switch, turning the switch off will suffice, but if it is fed direct, then you will have to find the breaker that controls that circuit.

      Step 2With the power off, take a look at the lighting kit on your fan. Notice that there are three screws securing the lighting canopy to the body of the fan. These screws will have to be removed, but first, remove all of the bulbs and glass shades from the lighting assembly. This will help lighten the weight of the lighting assembly when you do remove the screws.

      Step 3Remove all three screws and slowly pull the lighting assembly apart from the body of the fan. Locate the pull chain switch that controls the lighting assembly. Use your touch-type voltage tester to ensure that the power is off.

      The pull chain for the lights is usually the one located near the bottom of the fan, closer to the actual lights. The pull chain that controls the fan is usually the one located closer to the blades.

      Step 4If you have a pull chain dangle, remove it from the chain. Where the pull chain exits the body of the fan you will notice a screw-on cap which has the chain coming out of it. Unscrew and remove the cap. This will release the pull chain switch from the body of the fan.

      Step 5 Pull Chain SwitchNotice on the switch that there are two black wires attached. Remove the wire connectors from the two wires attached to the switch and discard the old pull chain switch.

      Step 6Take your new pull chain switch and connect one wire from it with one of the black wires that you disconnected from the previous switch. It doesn't matter which one. Then, connect the other switch wire with the other black wire that was connected to the old switch. Secure both pairs of wires with wire connectors and wrap a strip of electrical tape around the connectors where they meet the wire.

      Step 7If the new switch has the cap already on it, remove it. Then, insert the chain and the threaded nipple into the hole where the previous switch was installed. Slide the cap over the chain and screw it onto the threaded nipple to hold the pull chain switch in place.

      Step 8Gently push all of the wires back into the box and resecure the light assembly using the three screws that were removed earlier. Make sure no wires are hanging out of the box when you secure the light kit to the fan body.

      Step 9Reinstall the glass shades, light bulbs and pull chain dangle.

      Step 10Turn the power back on to the fan and give the pull chain a tug. Your ceiling fan's light kit should now work!

  2. QUESTION:
    What do you call those glass things that house light bulbs on a ceiling fan?
    I bought a new ceiling fan but want to replace the glass bulb "holder" things because the bell-shaped ones that came with it look dated. I want to know what they are called so I can search them online. The replacements at Lowes and HD seem too pricy. Thanks!

    • ANSWER:
      They are globes if they're round and enclosed, and shades if they are open.

  3. QUESTION:
    Where can I get longitudinal spring clips for securing lamp shades to light fixtures?
    These were used in my ceiling fan to hold on the glass shade (instead of the small screws) and one broke. The fan manufacturer does not use them anymore and can't tell me where to get them. Unless I can find one, I will have to throw out my beautiful ceiling fan, since they don't make replacement light fixtures for this fan either.
    Here is a picture of what they look like: http://www.kingoffans.com/photos/manuals/139.pdf

    • ANSWER:
      Hopefully at a lighting supply house, or at worse from the manufacturer's web site.

  4. QUESTION:
    I have a Hunter ceiling fan with these twist and click glass shades and one broke?
    I cannot order these individually through Hunter and they do not sell these shades at the stores I have looked at..How can I find this one single twist and lock shade

    • ANSWER:
      You should just buy a complete replacement set from Lowe's, instead of trying to match the one broken one. Also, worse case scenario you can probably remove the light-fixture portion of the fan and replace it.

      Hunter has some pretty good warranties though - so think about trying to return the entire fan for a replacement.

  5. QUESTION:
    how to reduce air conditioning consumption?
    i don't want to stop using it but i was wondering if you have any tips for turning the thermostat on my air con unit but still stay cool?

    • ANSWER:
      Edit
      How cool ? That is very subjective. We will assume that your unit is clean and in good working order and properly charged.
      Obviously the less the unit runs the less energy will be consumed and a higher summertime thermostat setting will accomplish that. ( Also lower setting in the Winter.) Also, the higher the inside temperature setting the more acclimated you will become to the hot weather outside. It is odd that when it is 80 F outside people say "How wonderful", but when it is 80F inside people say, "How miserable ".
      Dress more lightly. The utilization of ceiling fans or floor fans will be a huge help in cooling you personally due to primarily skin moisture evaporation. Place the floor fans to spot cool places of higher activity. Turn off lights. Cut back on heating processes in the kitchen and laundry; use the kitchen hood exhaust fan ( I know they are noisy) . Run bath exhausts to hold down humidity.
      Gradually raise the thermostat setting and then you ( and those with you) decide how high. There will be a heat (and cold) tolerance difference between people, especially between men and women. ( So we were advised to just put the thermostat in the boss's office.)
      There are modifications which will improve the structure such as attic exhausts, additional ceiling insulation, shading , etc. but the above suggestions can be done right now.
      As for applying water to the condenser, the longer term problems of coil fouling from evaoration deposits where sprayed, or with frame rusting with pools will cost you more in equipment replacement than you will save on your electric bill.

  6. QUESTION:
    Switching ceiling fan globes?
    We bought a Harbor Breeze Edenton ceiling fan and replacement globes to switch out the ones in the box. Upon inspection of the box's contents we learned that the globes do not seem to be interchangable. The replacement globes are meant for fixtures that utilize screws to tight the shade in place, while the fan's apparatus uses a srew-in type of "locking nut" that sits behind the light bulb. Is a retro-fit kit available to use the open-stock glass in our new unit?

    • ANSWER:
      you need a retro fit/general purpose light kit that uses the set screw type globe and has the same diameter as your fan where the light kit kit mounts to the bottom. should be easy to find where you bought the fan, not to much extra.

    • ANSWER:
      Where Energy Is Used In The Home
      The following electric energy use pattern is fairly common in many Tallahassee homes (all-electric homes heated and cooled with an electric heat pump).

      Heating or cooling the house - 60%
      Water heating - 15%
      Refrigeration - 13%
      Everything else (TV, lights, washer, dryer, cooking, etc.) - 12%
      As you can see, the greatest opportunities for energy reduction are in heating and cooling the house.

      Making A Plan To Save Energy
      Make sure that all members of your household understand that saving energy is important.

      Settings at your central thermostat are critical. Post a written reminder at the thermostat, for example:

      Summer 78 degrees (80 when away)
      Winter 68 degrees (65 at night)
      Discuss household energy practices. Place written reminders in prominent places (like the refrigerator). Get everyone on board with the effort.

      To see how you're doing, keep a written chart! Compare kilowatt-hour usage on bills from month to month, and compare the same month one year ago. Write it down! This really works.

      Energy Tips for Apartment Dwellers
      Helpful advice to apartment dwellers, especially students and others with their first-ever utility account!

      Don't think of it as the "Light Bill." We may call it a light bill but in summer we ought to call it "the Air Conditioning Bill." Central air conditioning requires about 50 times as much power as a 75-watt light bulb.
      Set your air conditioning thermostat carefully.
      Summer: Recommended indoor temperature is 78 degrees in . Set it higher when you're away all day.
      Winter: Recommended indoor temperature is 68 degrees. Set it lower at night.
      How to set the "Fan" selection: Always select AUTO, never ON.
      Find your system's air filter. Make sure there is one, and make sure it's clean. If not, notify your apartment manager. Some filters are cleanable; others require replacement. Clogged filters increase your cooling and heating costs.
      Manage sunlight at windows. In summer, close shades, drapes or blinds to block and reflect the sun's heat outward. You'll be surprised at what a great difference this makes. In winter, let sun in, but close window coverings at night.
      Use hot water wisely. Report or repair leaks promptly. A hot water leak can increase your energy costs as well as your water and sewer costs.
      Summer Energy Tips
      For big savings this summer, develop good energy saving habits. Big savings can come from little changes in behavior and habits. Top on any list: Proper handling of the air conditioning thermostat. Here's a quick review of low-cost and no-cost ways to save energy and money.

      Cool your house to 78 degrees or your highest comfortable temperature. In summer, higher thermostat settings cost less; lower settings cost more. Set your thermostat carefully! Research on Florida homes showed that summer AC cost increases 12% for each degree the thermostat is lowered below 80 degrees.

      Close shades, drapes and blinds during the day (all directions).

      Wear lightweight clothing (short sleeves, shorts, cotton).

      Don't try to speed-cool at a very low temperature setting when you arrive home from work or school. Choose your normal evening setting, for example 78 degrees. Your AC cools just as fast set at 78 degrees as it does at 68 degrees. Set it to 78 degrees and avoid over-cooling.

      When weather is mild, use fans instead of the air conditioner. Your central air conditioner will use about 50 times more energy than a fan at medium speed.

      If you have ceiling fans, run the fans and the air conditioner at the same time but set the air conditioner 2 or 3 degrees higher. You'll feel just as cool, but your overall cooling cost will be 20-30% lower!

      Turn off ceiling fans when you're away. Fans cool your skin. Fans don't cool the room. Turn them off if you're not going to be there to feel the breeze.

      Use a microwave instead of the range/oven. The microwave doesn’t heat the kitchen.

      Keep windows and doors closed while air conditioning.

      Change the air conditioner's air filter monthly during heavy use. When it's clogged, airflow is restricted -- cooling costs rise, and your system may eventually suffer a compressor failure with a ,000+ repair bill!

      Arrange items in your refrigerator for quick removal and return. Your refrigerator cools the food but heats the kitchen. The longer the door is open, the longer it runs, heating the kitchen and raising your air conditioning costs.

      Vent the clothes dryer to the out-of-doors. Otherwise it pours heat and moisture into the house air.

      If your dryer has an automatic cycle, use it. Over-drying wastes energy and wears out your clothes.

      Clean the dryer lint filter screen frequently and check the outdoor vent opening. When lint slows the airflow, the dryer runs longer. When the vent is clogged the clothes get a long, ineffective tumbling.

      Drink plenty of cool liquids. Avoid caffeine or alcohol. Eat lightly. Cook outdoors.

      Plant shade trees. Outside shade can reduce air conditioning costs 30%. Shade on the east and west is most important.

      Seal air leaks around doors and windows. Use caulk and weather-stripping.

      Check for air duct leaks, or disconnected ducts. Duct leaks in the attic or under the house can double your cooling cost.

      Close your fireplace damper!

      Always set the AC thermostat FAN selection to "AUTO", never to "ON". This is important: On AUTO, humidity is kept lower, costs are much lower and comfort is higher. Don't move the fan lever to "ON"! Set the fan on "AUTO".

      Keep up the habit of turning off lights as you leave a room, especially in summer. Lights add a lot of heat to the room. Better yet, change out to CFL's that use a lot less energy and produce less heat.

      Have a qualified service technician conduct a seasonal checkup on your central heat pump or air conditioner. Your springtime servicing should include a check of your thermostat including leveling it if necessary; a check of your system's refrigerant charge; cleaning evaporator and condenser coils if necessary; and check for duct leaks and repair or seal as necessary.

      Consider a pool pump timer. Pool pumping 24 hours/day with a 3/4 horsepower pump motor can cost nearly /month at current electric rates. A timer is well worth its installed cost.

      Bulk up your ceiling insulation. Call Energy Services for ceiling insulation grants that pay 80% of the cost, up to 0 (or 100% of the cost up to 0 for income-qualified customers). The highest recommended level for our region is "R38" (38 R-values) or about 15 inches depth of the newer kinds of blown white fiberglass insulation. A good protective layer of ceiling insulation prevents heat from moving inward in summer and holds heat inside in winter. Note: Recently the U.S. Department of Energy moved Tallahassee into its Region 3 climate zone, which includes some fairly cold locations like Atlanta, Richmond, Kansas City and Seattle. Recommended maximum ceiling insulation level in Region 3 if you heat with electric resistance "strip" heating is R49. That would call for about 20 inches of blown white fiberglass, or 13 inches of blown cellulose insulation.

      Use your bathroom vent fan after a shower.

      Reconsider having an old refrigerator or freezer in your hot garage.

      Avoid rooftop power ventilating fans. They tend to cost more to operate than they save, especially if the thermostat is set too low.

      Make sure your air conditioner's return-air grill has plenty of clearance. Floor-level grills sometimes get covered by a rug or blocked by furniture.

      Use a clothesline.

      Make sure to clean the lint from your clothes dryer's outdoor exhaust vent. And make sure it's not throwing lint onto your air conditioner's outdoor condenser coils.

      Make sure your air conditioner's thermostat is well away from any source or heat. Keep lamps at a distance to avoid false high temperature readings and unwanted long cooling runtimes.

      If your garage was long ago converted to an enclosed, heated and cooled room, make sure it has ceiling insulation.

      Make sure your ceiling fans are breezing downwards, not upwards. A common problem.

      If your air conditioning ductwork is under the house and your supply air registers are at floor level, check all of them from above with a flashlight. First, it's easy for the register vanes to be accidentally kicked shut. Second, make sure the duct boot under the vent is still connected. When you look down through a floor register, you shouldn’t see the earth.

      Keep all air conditioning supply air registers open. Don't close off rooms or registers. That doesn't save money, and it may lead to costly problems.

      Your air conditioner shouldn't pull air through a succession of filters. If you have a filter mounted in a hallway grill, and find a second filter slotted into the air handler, remove one of the filters. If in doubt, call for an energy audit or consult with an AC technician.
      Take Control Of Your Winter Heating Costs
      Beware of the following problems that can lead to skyrocketing winter heating costs.

      Thermostat setting is too high. 68 degrees is recommended. Set your thermostat carefully, and lower the temperature to 65 degrees at night if you have a heat pump, or 55-60 degrees overnight if you have gas, oil or electric strip heat. If you heat to 78 degrees, expect high bills.
      Heat pump thermostat accidentally set to "Emergency Heat" all winter. A simple mistake that can double or triple your heating costs.
      Clogged filters and restricted airflow. If you have a heat pump, anything that restricts airflow will reduce efficiency and increase your heating co

  9. QUESTION:
    Who manufactures steel tensioners for ceiling fans?
    and where can I get them? The tensioner spring holds the glass shade on some ceiling fans. One of mine broke and I cannot find anyone making or selling just the tensioner. Hampton Bay puts them on some of their ceiling fans, but you must replace the entire light kit to get one tensioner. If the fan has been discontinued, you can't get it and you may not be able to find a similar light kit in the same finish. So far I have found the Redington III (I have, but discontinued) and the Lindhurst (not the same finish) Others have asked all over the web, but no answer so far. Hope you can help. Thanks

    • ANSWER:
      Hampton Bay ceiling fans are mass produced in China specifically for Home Depot...it is their own house brand. Home Depot does not import individual replacement parts like this for their fans, so you are not going to find them unless you take a trip to China. Getting parts like this for fans sold by all mass merchants is usually next to impossible because they are ALL made in China and they do not import these types of parts.

      On the other hand, high end brands such as Casablanca, Emerson, Fanimation, Modern Fan Company (see resource below) and a few others actually do import replacement parts, so if you have problems with them you can usually get them fixed. However, those brands are not sold by Home Depot, Lowe's, Wal-Mart or any other mass merchant. They are only available by ceiling fan specialty dealers and lighting stores. This is one of the reasons why fans sold by mass merchants are cheaper.

      Bottom line is, you are going to have to buy the entire light fixture (if it is still available), replace your entire fan, or live with it as is.

  10. QUESTION:
    Broken Ceiling Fan Light, the Clip Inside!?
    Somehow the clip that holds the light shade has broken on my fan. I wanted to replace them but I don't know how they would stay on. I know this is kind of hard to explain but I'm running out of options. I don't want to buy a new fan! Any help would be awesome, thank you!!

    • ANSWER:
      Some fans come with light fixtures that are manufactured as part of the fan, others have fixtures that can be removed. If you have a fan where the fixture that holds the glass can be removed, then you may be able to replace the entire light fixture...which is the easiest solution.

      Rather than go into all the details about how various different light fixtures can be removed and replaced, I would suggest that you simply email me some pictures of your fan so that I can see the light fixture; how it attaches, and make some recommendations or even help you find a replacement.

    im trying to get replacement covers for the bulbs, but i cant look it up properly on google. im sick of ugly white glass! also if you know any cheap places that have varieties of them?

    • ANSWER:
      They are called globes. They come in quite a variety of styles. Also the part of the globe that attaches to the fan(called the fitter) come in different sizes and styles. If it attaches with screws, the size of the fitter is 2-1/4". Some are held in with a screw collar. About the cheapest will be at the big box stores. The best selections will be through Lighting Showrooms.

  4. QUESTION:
    What factors cause incandescent bulbs to burn out faster?
    I know that voltages too high or too low can shorten the life span on incandescent bulbs. I also know that vibrations (wall shaking) makes a big difference. I am an electrician and I have been asked this question on numerous occasions and these are the only two answers I have, but I am sure there are more.

    • ANSWER:
      1. High Voltage in the Home
      If the supply voltage to your home is too great, bulbs will generally burn brighter and burn out much faster. To find out, use a volt meter and check the voltage in an outlet or at the service panel. Usually you'll like to see a voltage of 115 - 125 volts. Anything more is considered excessive and the utility company should be called to correct the problem.

      2. Excessive Fixture Vibrations
      Another cause of bulbs burning out is excessive fixture vibration. A good example of this is a ceiling fan in your home that also incorporates lighting on the unit. When a fan blade becomes unbalanced, the fan starts to shake. This vibration jiggles the filament in the bulb and will lead to shorter bulb life. You can try a rough service bulb to correct this problem.

      3. Bulb Doesn't Light
      If a bulb doesn't light even after you've changed the bulb, it's likely that one of the following is the trouble. Be sure that the cord on your desk lamp hasn't come unplugged from the receptical. Check the cord to see if perhaps the cord is damaged. If so, install a new cord. Don't just tape the cord and cause yourself problems in the future. It is also possible that the outlet or the switch controlling the outlet is defective or broken. Check for voltage and replace if necessary.

      Bulbs have also been known to be loose in the socket. If so, tighten the bulb to correct the problem.

      4. The Replacement Bulb Won't Light Either
      The bulb itself could be the problem. Sometimes, cheaper bulbs will have little or no solder on the contact point of the bulb. These bulbs will cause you problems and wo't last very long. Just because you have a package of four bulks and installed a new one, doesn't mean that the bulb isn't decfective. Try inserting the bulb in another fixture to verify it's operation. Do yourself a favor and buy a little more expensive bulb that will give you your money's worth.

      5. The Bulb Flickers
      When a bulb is loose in the socket it can flicker on and off. Simply tighten the bulb to correct the problem. Another problem may be a loose wire connection. Check the connection on the fixture after turning the power off first. Contacts in the center of the socket can get worn or corroded and cause you a lot of headaches. In this case, change the socket.

      6. Circuit Breakers Tripped or Fuses Blown
      If the circuit isn't working due to a tripped breaker or blown fuse, then there is likely a short circuit. The cord may be shorted, a plug could be defective, or the light socket is shorted or defective. In any of these cases, replace the defective parts before restting the breaker or replacing a fuse.

      7. Overheated or Burnt Bulb
      Open the fixture globe or cover and check to see if the bulb wattage is too large for the fixture. on the side of the fixture is a label that states the appropriate maximum size wattage of bulb to use in the fixture. Yes, a larger size bulb usaually will screw right into the socket, but that is where the trouble begins. Using a larger bulb will cause excessive heat inside the globe and cause the fixture to overhet. Due to the exceesive heat, the bulb life will be much less and will likely show signs of trouble. To correct this, use the appropriate size bulb.

      The area where the bulb is in contact with or close proximity to the fixture insulation will likely show signs of this heat.

      8. Can Light Turns On and Off
      The area in an attic around a can light can be covered up by insulation and cause improper air circulation for heat in a fixture. This too will cause short bulb life. Be sure that there is appropriate space between the can light and attic insulation to correct this problem. You can build a box around the can light to allow for appropriate space.

  5. QUESTION:
    How to Fix Ceiling Fan Light?
    I just moved into a new house and in my bedroom their is an ordinary ceiling fan with a light. It worked great for about 3 weeks. Then one day I went into my bedroom, turned on the switch, and the light went on for half a second then quickly shut-off. My fan works fine but my light wont turn on? I've replaced all of the bulbs but that doesn't help either. Help Please!!

    • ANSWER:
      Most ceiling fans come with a replaceable light fixture. Turn the power off at the breaker, remove the bulbs and globes and there should either be some small screws or a big nut holding the light fixture on the fan. Remove this and make a note of what wires are connected to what (usually a white to a white, and a blue to a blue or black) and take the fixture with you to a home improvement store. Show them what you have and get a replacement. Simply reverse the process to install the new light. Feel free to email if you have any more questions.

  6. QUESTION:
    Where can I find globe replacements for 5 arm ceiling fan lights?

    • ANSWER:
      Both the Lowes and Home Depot in my area carry a great selection. I have changed my globes on the ceiling fan in the kitchen and found them on sale for at Lowes, but you will find them at every price range in the lighting department. Also, Lamps plus has a decent selection, but they are a lot more expensive.

  7. QUESTION:
    Switching ceiling fan globes?
    We bought a Harbor Breeze Edenton ceiling fan and replacement globes to switch out the ones in the box. Upon inspection of the box's contents we learned that the globes do not seem to be interchangable. The replacement globes are meant for fixtures that utilize screws to tight the shade in place, while the fan's apparatus uses a srew-in type of "locking nut" that sits behind the light bulb. Is a retro-fit kit available to use the open-stock glass in our new unit?

    • ANSWER:
      you need a retro fit/general purpose light kit that uses the set screw type globe and has the same diameter as your fan where the light kit kit mounts to the bottom. should be easy to find where you bought the fan, not to much extra.

  8. QUESTION:
    how to fix squeaky ceiling fan?
    the past few days my ceiling fan has started squeaking regardless of speed. it is really making me GRR. :(

    What can I do??
    but how do I put it in there?? do I have to take it apart? sorry I don't know anything about ceiling fans.

    • ANSWER:
      Try tightening the fan blade screws. This probably won't stop the noise but I'll bet you'll find they are loose. Then measure the distance from the ceiling to the tip of each blade. More than 1/8" difference and the fan will wobble enough to make noise. You can get replacement brackets and reuse the blades if you like.
      Check to be sure the globes on the light kit are snug.
      Now If it is a really old Hunter fan you CAN add oil to the bearing through a hole in the side of the "neck" of the fan.
      On "newer" fans the bearings are sealed and it will do you no good try lubricating them.
      My experience has been that fans under 0 tend to have more "issues" than more expensive ones.

  9. QUESTION:
    where can I find a replacement globe for my Ellington ceiling Fan TIT52SCH5LKRCX Titan 5 Blade 52"?

    • ANSWER:

  10. QUESTION:
    UPS Damaged my new ceiling fan?
    I came home and my new Ceiling Fan was on its side. I opened it, and the light globe was shattered. I returned it, and am getting a new one. Should i still report this to UPS??

    • ANSWER:
      You really can't claim damage from UPS if you are getting a free replacement from the folks who sent the fan, but you might write/email UPS to let them know that the shipment was damaged so they have better statistics on their own performance. I would not expect an answer.
