It looks similar to one of ours, one has tiny screws 3 near top of glass in metal at bottom of fan (loosen off one and it will drop out) the other one is just a spring fit carefully grab glass and pull down on one side. JDE

Re: How do i change this lightbulb?

Hello @ashhills

 

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining us and sharing your question about changing the lightbulb in your ceiling fan.

 

It's great that you've received fantastic advice from @JDE. I totally agree with the recommendations. If there are no holding screws, the glass cover is held in by three steel strips. In order to remove the glass cover, you need to firmly hold on to the glass with both hands and firmly tilt/pull the cover down. Once one of the strips is free it should be easy to remove the cover from the other two. 

 

I recommend bringing the bulb with you and replacing it with an equivalent LED Light Bulb. Would it be possible for you to post a photo of the assembly once the cover has been removed? This would show others how this particular repair is accomplished.

 

If you need further assistance, please let us know.

 

Eric
