I can't figure out how to get into the light fixture on this fan. There don't appear to be any screws or tabs. I tried pulling it down gently. I also tried twisting it gently. It is possible that it twists or pulls down, but I don't want to damage the fan by applying too much pressure. How do I change the bulb on this fan?

  • The styling of that fan looks like a Casa Vieja. Can you get above it to look down at the top of the motor and see if there's a manufacturer label?

  • As I remember it's raise slightly and twist, including both the lens and chrome ring below the lens.

  • It's a Harbor Breeze Aero, good thought looking for identifying markings on the top of the motor housing.

The fan is a Harbor Breeze Aero. Only the glass comes off. Slight push up and a twist counter clockwise twists the glass. Then you let it drop down slowly. It's about a 1/3 to 1/2 twist to get it to the stopping point.
