How to change a bulb on a Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan
Firstly, we assume that you think that there is an issue with the bulb. Yesterday, the bulb was working and today you turn it on and it makes a sound or noise (you might have heard this sound earlier when the bulb gets faulty). The sound is unique in nature and it may sound like psssht. You may or may not have listened to the noise but you are certain that it is the bulb.
When it comes to changing the bulb, here’s a step by step guide on how to do it:
- Switch off the ceiling fan and the light. You need to ensure that it’s turned off at the breaker rather than just the switch, to remain safe.
- Get a step ladder and position it under the ceiling fan. Some of us can be taller, so if you can do it without a ladder – that’s great! However, most of us will need it.
- Now, have a look at the globe or shade, they will be one of these that attach to the ceiling fan light kit. This is what they look like:
4. Usually, there are 2 screws where the globe or shade attaches to your Harbor Breeze fan. It is possible that you might have more than two screws, but generally, there are two.
5. Now it is time to deal with the tricky part – trying to remove your globe or shade, preventing it from falling down and smashing on the floor. Once it is removed, the globe has to be changed, and this will embark you on the journey of trying to locate a replacement Harbor Breeze globe. So don’t it! You will use one hand to hold the globe, while you use the other hand to unscrew it.
If your family member or a friend can help you, this will be very helpful for the task. The process will be easier for you if you get an extra pair of hands when it comes to unscrewing the globe to avoid it falling down on the floor and smashing.
There is a chance that the globe or shade may not need to use a screwdriver to unscrew it, and it can be simply completed by turning the screws or fasteners by hand to do the job. It entirely depends on the model of the fan you are using.
