I am trying to get the cover off a Steeple fan that was already installed in my house. Anyone know how please?

    Most fan covers that have no noticeable screws, are held up with a type of spring. Usually just pull down and the springs will allow the cover to drop a few inches. Then you can reach in and detach them to remove the cover completely.

Use a small flat-bladed screwdriver to to remove the white plastic plug at 6 o’clock. Then remove the screw behind that with a Philips screwdriver. Slide the panel away from the screw position and off it comes.


Removing the Phillips screw takes a bit of turning, so persevere and it will come off. The screw is held in place by the panel so you can’t lose it.
