I purchased an Antigua Ceiling fan with light kit. We got everything up and working. When I went to put the cover on the light and turn on the fan it makes the whole light turn along with the fan. Have read both instructions and no help.

Hi Sariza,

Did you ever get this problem resolved? I am having the same exact problem with that fan/light kit. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I am having the same problem too. I just wonder if it owuld be ok to buy a longer threaded rod so the globe will not touch the blades. It's driving me crazy. If you found an answer let me know.

I am having the same problem when installin the light kit to this fan. fThe light covering fits so closely to the fan blades that they hit the glass or the light covering turns with the fan!! It is making me nutty and I am wondering if anyone has a fix for this. I thought to loosen the threaded portion to drop the light down further but it seems to be not something that can be adjusted.

We found a longer threaded rod from a different lamp and used that. There was no good solution with the parts provided.

Given that it's been a year since I had the problem and you're having the problem, it seems as though they still haven't fixed this. I don't know how the company could not be aware of the problem unless their quality control standards are just that bad. I would expect more from Hampton Bay even if it is manufactured by a different company.
