Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Parts
Finding replacement Harbor Breeze ceiling fan parts online can be a challenge. Many websites claim to have the replacement parts, but when you go to that website saying they have said part, it turns out they really don’t. The reason for this is because Harbor Breeze replacement parts are only sold in very specific channels. The first thing to understand is that these fans are the store brand of Home Depot and Lowe’s. That’s your first place to find parts for any Harbor Breeze fan. In fact, in most cases, you likely originally purchased the fan there anyways, so it makes sense that that should be your first point of contact for finding replacement parts.
If the fan was purchased within the last one year, it’s also possible that the part you need may be covered under warranty. Check out the Harbor Breeze warranty page for more information about obtaining support or a warranty redeemal inquiry where needed. Keep in mind we are not the manufacturer, and thus we cannot assist with warranty requests. However, we can point you in the right direction for obtaining warranty support from either the retailer or from Litex (the manufacturer of Harbor Breeze and Hampton Bay ceiling fans).
The most common replacement Harbor Breeze ceiling fan parts include things like replacement ceiling fan blades, replacement light kits, and replacement glass globes or shades. The reason these are the most common items to replace on a Harbor Breeze fan? Well, fan blades can warp or bend. Light shades or globes can wind up smashed on the floor when you’re trying to change one (don’t you wish you had more arms?) and finally, light kits can just stop working sometimes and after extensive troubleshooting, you decide to simply replace the light. Harbor Breeze ceiling fan remotes are also another commodity that are sought after, because well, let’s face it – fan remotes tend to get misplaced, lost or broken. If you’re having a hard time with your remote, be sure to read our troubleshooting FAQ on how to troubleshoot ceiling fan remotes – you’ll be glad you did!
Here are some of the most commonly sought after Harbor Breeze ceiling fan parts below.
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Remotes
Remotes are one of the most highly sought after item – whether it’s Harbor Breeze, or another brand of fan. Remotes tend to get lost, broken, etc. They are in medium to high demand. If you are searching for a replacement remote, one of the most important things to understand is what ceiling fan remotes are compatible with your ceiling fan. If you can figure this out, it’ll make replacing the remote a lot easier. Determining how this works can be tricky. Obviously, if you’re able to locate the same original remote with the same part number – great. But this isn’t always the case for everyone, and thus the compatibility requirement comes about.

Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Downrods
Downrods are another item that site visitors look for. There’s a few different reasons why this may be the case. If you have an older fan and the downrod looks like it’s wearing thin, about to break, etc. Or perhaps the fan is wobbling and appears to be unsafe. You would need to go through a troubleshooting routine first. Once you determine the downrod needs replacement, then it’s time to source one that is of the correct size. If you don’t know what size of downrod you need, refer to the manual that came with your ceiling fan. If you don’t have the manual, check out our page on Harbor Breeze ceiling fan manuals for more assistance.
Here’s a complete listing of the different Harbor Breeze parts we have available:
Ceiling fan blades sometimes need replacement if they warp, break, fall apart or etc. A fan blade can warp if dirt or dust accumulate on them. Be sure to read our article on how to clean your ceiling fan in order to ensure that dust or dirt do not accumulate on your fan blades over the years.
Downrods are used with most fans. A downrod hangs the fan from the ceiling, and securely attaches it. There are fans that don’t use downrods – these are flushmount ceiling fans.
A globe and a shade are similar. A globe is generally a glass globe that goes over your bulb or light on your fan. A shade can be of a different material such as fabric and typically is not glass, but could be potentially. Globes are often sought after when trying to replace a bulb, and they fall upon the floor and smash. This can happen to the best of us and certainly can be frustrating, to say the least.
One of the best things about Harbor Breeze ceiling fan globes is the ability to customize your fan to reflect your personal style. Mix and match globes to create a unique look that complements your décor, or swap out globes seasonally to keep things fresh and interesting. With a wide range of colors, shapes, and designs to choose from, the possibilities are endless.
How to install a new ceiling fan globe
Remove the Existing Globe
Depending on the design of your ceiling fan, the globe may be secured with screws or clips. Carefully remove any screws or clips holding the globe in place and set them aside. Gently lower the existing globe from the fan and place it in a safe location.
Choose a Replacement Globe
Select a replacement globe that matches the size, shape, and style of your existing fixture. Measure the diameter of the opening where the globe sits to ensure a proper fit. Consider upgrading to a different style or material for a fresh look and enhanced lighting effect.
Install the New Globe
Carefully position the new globe over the light fixture, aligning it with the mounting screws or clips. If necessary, secure the globe in place using the screws or clips provided. Be sure not to overtighten the screws to avoid damaging the globe or the fixture.
Test the Light Fixture
Once the new globe is securely in place, restore power to the ceiling fan at the circuit breaker. Test the light fixture to ensure that it functions properly and that the globe is seated securely. If the light does not turn on, double-check the connections and power supply before proceeding.
