How to Remove the Upper Housing of a Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan


Hampton Bay, the manufacturer of many different kinds of ceiling fans, has a number of fan varieties with removable upper housings. The upper housing is the portion of the ceiling fan that closes off the motor housing and faces toward the ceiling and the fan’s canopy. The only reason to remove the upper casing on a Hampton Bay ceiling fan would be to troubleshoot the motor inside of it. Screws usually keep the upper housing closed.

Things You'll Need

  • Ladder
  • Philips screwdriver
  • Turn off the power on the fan and turn off the power supply to the room in which the fan is located.

  • Enlist a helper to hold the motor housing while you climb a ladder to get to the top of the Hampton Bay ceiling fan.

  • Unthread the screws holding the motor collar to the hanger. Pull out the locking pin.

  • Disconnect all the wires in the assembly from the wires in the ceiling.

  • Lower the Hampton Bay motor casing to the ground.

  • Unscrew the screws in the top of the motor casing and lift the upper casing off the motor casing.
