Replacement light for ceiling fan?

Posted by trixietx (My Page) on

I have two Hunter ceiling fans that are probably 8 or 9 years old and I need a new light globe for one of them. It is seeded glass with a four inch fitter and kind of an upside down mushroom shape. I love the globe and don't want to have to replace it with just a schoolhouse or round globe fixture.
Any ideas?

RE: Replacement light for ceiling fan?

Both Home Depot and Lowe's carry quite a few globes for ceiling fans, at least they do in Arizona. You could also look online. If you go to the big box stores, you could take the old globe to be sure the new one will fit.

I have looked at both and they don't have anything similar or that would look good with my ceiling fan. After looking and looking online I found one place that had the same glass lampshade as mine, called and he said it was on backorder and had been for a long time. I am thinking they probably don't make it anymore.

Thank you dainne for your response.

RE: Replacement light for ceiling fan?

I have a very unique bulb in my ceiling fan from Home Depot; it's about 5 years old, the Belvedere. Since I didn't remember the model name and couldn't locate the owner's manual I called HD store, they knew nothing.( I don't know about Lowe's and their fans.) Anyway the company that makes some or all of HD's fans is King of Fans. I first contacted HD corporate offices in Atlanta, sent the rep a picture of my fan and bulb via email and within two days I received call from the HD rep and King of Fans rep on a conference call and ordered the replacement. King of Fans is in Florida, just google it for their contact info.



RE: Name of Replacement light for ceiling fan?

Sorry I forgot to say the brand name at Home Depot was Hampton Bay but the fan was made by King of Fans.
