Do you need to find the model number of your Hampton Bay fan? It is often a challenge, where you want to get help with your ceiling fan (even if it’s not a Hampton Bay fan) and you need to know the model. Having the model number or the model name will help you to replace a part, get troubleshooting help or sometimes warranty support. It’s a basic piece of information that’s needed in most situations where you need general help with your ceiling fan.
With that being said, there are a few different ways to find the model number for your fan:
- The first way is to locate the manual that came with your fan. If you can’t find the manual, we do have a page where you can take a look for your manual. However, this can become a catch 22 because to find the manual you need for your fan online, you of course need to know the model.
- The other place you can find the model number is the outside of the box that the fan came in.
- Another place to look is on the fan itself. If you have a fan that is mounted with a downrod (this is most fans), there would be an identifying sticker on the top of the motor housing. This means it is actually facing towards the ceiling. A mirror or a phone camera is good to capture the model number. You can then plug the model number into a major search engine, and you’ll find the name of that model as well from searching.
- Check the remote control. The remote may have a model number. Take a look inside of the back (like inside of the battery compartment). Check all around the remote to see if you can find a label with the model number. Usually, you can find a label on the remote or inside of the remote.
- The blades could potentially have model numbers or other information printed on.
