Hampton Bay ceiling fan installation

Installing a Hampton Bay ceiling fan. Steps:

1) Turn off the power & remove the existing lighting fixture or a ceiling fan.

2) Use a tester and make sure there is no electricity before you handle the wires.

3) Tightly install the fan mounting bracket and make sure it is firm.

4) Now hang the ceiling fan on the mounting bracket & connect the wires according to the manual. The 3 wires coming from the ceiling should match the ones on your ceiling fan. Black means positive, white is neutral & it is green for grounding.

5) Now attach the fan blades and the lighting fixture firmly to the base.

6) turn on electricity and make sure it’s working properly.

    I have a log home with a slanted roof. It’s a steep angle in the room I want to install a fan. What is the most angle a ceiling fan can hang? Is there a kit so that a Hampton Bay ceiling fan can hang down correctly?
    Thanks, Kate

    I am having 5 Hampton Bay Ceiling fans installed. 3 in bedrooms (52 inches each), 1 in a Family Room (60 inches) and a fan outside on my porch. I paid the builder to install the boxes for the ceiling fans. I recently found out that the electrician prefers metal boxes over plastic boxes and will not install a ceiling fan on a plastic box.
    When he installed the fans, he removed the plastic boxes and installed 3 additional metal boxes. His charge for installing the 3 metal boxes and removing the plastic boxes was around $750. Therefore, installing 5 ceiling fans cost in excess of $1025.00.
    When I called the builder, he said that there was no requirement to use a metal box. So I paid the builder to install something that was removed because the outside contractor electrician said that plastic was not safe. I realize that I was screwed all the way around but am wondering who the primary liar is. Of course, each party blames the other. The property is in Montross Virginia, in Westmoreland County Virginia. I’m just trying to figure out who to be the most pissed at.


    I have recently purchased a Hampton Bay fan, model Palm Beach 48″. A great looking fan but I can’t figure out how to hang it! When the fan was received the mounting plate was attached to the canopy ring with four screws but the heads of the screws are hidden by the finish material on the canopy ring. The material appears to be a metallic-like paint. I might be able to scrape/sand/ grind this material away in the area where the screw heads should be exposed (on the outside of the canopy ring) but I fear the screw heads might be damaged in this process making it impossible to unscrew and/or retighten the screws. Even if no damage occurs, the canopy ring would be somewhat unsightly after scraping the material from the area around the screws. Please advise as to how this problem can be remedied: I really like the fan. At this time I can’t remove the mounting plate from the canopy ring because the screw heads are not visible due to the paint(?) on the canopy ring. Thanks in advance for your help.

    I want to know the distance from the ceiling to mount a ceiling fan. It will attach to a beam in a vaulted living room. The beam is about 23′ off the floor.
