An eyelet protects the opening and strengthens the joint when fastened with a cable or screw. Among the Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Parts, grommets are important because they hold the entire structure together. Grommets are extremely necessary for the smooth running of the electric fan. The grommet may be made of metal, plastic, or rubber. The shape of a grommet also varies according to the hole it insulates.

The usual shapes of a fan grommet are round, oblong, oval, or square. The size of the grommet used depends on the fan blade size of the entire application. Metal grommets are usually used for their durability and temperature flexibility, and strength. Many companies prefer to create grommets out of brass. Other metal grommets also have nickel in their composition, as it is good for corrosion-resistant fan parts. Steel grommets also have corrosion resistance, malleability, and strength. Grommets are highly specific in their use. The use of specific grommets depends on their groove diameter, thickness, and other characteristics.

  • Did you try replacing the batteries in the remote, as well as removing them and putting them back in again?
  • Did you check the dip switches? Are the dip switches set correctly? If the dip switch settings are changed, the remote won’t be able to communicate with the fan.
  • Try turning the circuit breaker off to the fan, then turn it back on. Hold down the light or fan button for 10 seconds.
