How do I find my ceiling fan model?

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.
The final 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.
Here is a great video on the Hunter website that helps outline this step by step very well, in terms of determining the ceiling fan make or model:
