How do I replace light blub on Hampton Bay Sidewinder fan HD285314

I am trying to change the light bulb on the Hampton Bay Sidewinder fan. It shows the following model number online:

Model # HD285314, Internet # 202867714


I tried pushing up the light globe and turning it counter clockwise as has been suggested in many places. It turns a bit and then gets stuck - can't move it any further even with considerable force. Also, I don't see any opening for the pin to come out anyways even if I can somehow push it further.


This is quite frustrating. Looks like it is an online model only so I can't even find it in a local home depot and ask someone there.

Hi jairawat, welcome and glad you joined the community. Sorry to hear you’re having a hard time getting the globe off to change the light bulb.


You’re pursuing it the correct way. Pushing up on the globe and turning counter clockwise. I have found that your Hampton Bay fan was manufactured by King of Fans. Perhaps they can help tweak the process that’s in their manual.


You can place a call to King of Fans at 1-800 330-3267, M-F 8am-5pm EST. If you do not have a manual, you can obtain one from them or download one from our website using the internet number and click on the more info tab, then click on instructions/assembly. Hope this helps.
