Here are the updated instructions if you own the Harbor Breeze Kingsbury Ceiling Fan
These are the updated instructions for the 184428 Kingsbury Fan manufactured before December 2018. If you have a unit manufactured after December 2018 then you should have the updated instructions above already supplied in your manual.
Those who did have the glass bowl falling while using the ceiling fan were because they failed to secure the glass bowl as instructed i.e. “Lift the glass bowl into the ligh pan and turn in a clockwise direction. When you feel some resistance push the glass bowl up and continue to turn until it locks into place. The glass should turn about 1/4 of a rotation (approximately 4 inches) before it is secure.“
Hence the warning: “Caution: Failure to properly secure the glass bowl, may cause the glass to fall, which could cause serious injury.”
These new instructions can be found on page 15 point 8 of the manual, which you can download below.
If you need help to know what the manufacturing date of your Harbor Kingsbury Ceiling Fan is then you can locate this information on a label located on the top of the housing in the date format MM-YYYY.
