How To Contact Litex Industries for Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Parts with Video
Many of you may not know that Harbor Breeze fans are actually manufactured by a company based in Texas, United States, called Litex Industries.
At the time of writing this article, their company website LitexIndustries.com was under construction – more than likely being updated. Litex Industries is an importer and manufacturer of a few different ceiling fan brands, including Harbor Breeze and their own brand of ceiling fan called Litex.
We found their customer service to be very helpful and easy to contact.
They carry most replacement parts depending on the age of the ceiling fan. Obviously, with some of the older ceiling fans, it will be harder to locate a part.
Before contacting Litex Industries it’s important to have your Model number and/or Item number ready, as this will make it faster for them to locate your needed part.
You can find your model number on your receipt or on your ceiling fan box, in the instructions manual or on top of your ceiling fan by the motor.
The model number is usually a five-digit number and may look something like this: Model #40957 (this example is for the Harbor Breeze Coastal Creek Ceiling Fan)
The item number is usually a 6 digit number and may look something like this: Item #803770 (this example is for the Harbor Breeze Coastal Creek Ceiling Fan)
The physical address of Litex Industries, if you wish to write to them is:
3401 W Trinity Blvd, Grand Prairie, TX 75050, United States.
The hours of operation are between 8:30 AM – 5:00 PM Monday through to Friday. They are closed on Saturdays and Sundays.
They can be contacted on Phone: +1 800-527-1292
We found them to be very helpful with customer support giving us a very good user experience. Our call was answered promptly and politely and we didn’t have to wait or be put on hold.
Here is the video of our telephone call below:
As you can see by viewing the video above, this company will be able to provide you with many different replacement parts, and being the manufacturer is probably going to be the best first place to try.
However in saying that, if you don’t have time to make a call and want a quick way to locate a part then take a look at the next best option below.
Where To Locate Harbor Breeze Replacement Parts on Amazon
Amazon is a huge online store and carries a great deal of stock including Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans and Parts.
However, you really need to know how to go about locating the right part by using the correct search queries on Amazon.
After trying a number of different searches, I found this search to be the best: Harbor Breeze Replacement Parts (Affiliate link to Amazon)
It should return a few hundred items. You must remember that many of the items, including Harbor Breeze Remotes (Affiliate link to Amazon), will be universal items, meaning they will be suitable for many different brands of ceiling fans including Harbor Breeze.
You will need to read the sellers listing to ensure it is compatible with the Harbor Breeze item you have. Another place to verify if it is compatible with your brand or model is to check under the reviews of the item.
Many times the review left by a buyer will mention if it worked well for their Harbor Breeze model or not.
You can get a lot of valuable information by scanning the review of the replacement item you are looking at buying.
Finally, if you are still unsure you can contact the seller by following this process:
- Go to the product listing on Amazon
- Click the Ask a Question button.
- Type in your question and submit.
We found a number of replacement items on Amazon (Affiliate Links) including:
- Pull chains
- Glass globes
- Mounting kits
- Light kits, screws
- Lamp sockets
- Arms and a lot more such as below:
Amazon also do some great deals on Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fans. Check the gallery below:
How to Find Harbor Breeze Parts on eBay
I include eBay because although I feel it is not as good as the two options above, it still nonetheless offers a number of parts and new ceiling fans at reasonable prices.
However, many of the listings are done on a bidding basis so although you might get a better deal, you are going to have to wait until the auction is closed to be able to get the part, and that is if you have won the auction, whereas with Amazon you can buy it right away.
eBay does have a number of listings though that have a buy now option so you might just be able to find your part on eBay if you weren’t successful on Amazon.
It’s important again to use the right search term on eBay to locate your replacement part. I have found that using the search term: ‘Harbor Breeze Part’ to be the best search term to return the most results.
Many of the results at the time of writing included: downrods, canopy’s, pull chains, down covers, yoke covers, motors, motor housing covers, rubber housing cap plugs, ball hanger mounting bracket, fan blades, fan arms and lots more.
The nice thing with eBay is that you can also find listings of old or unworking Harbor Breeze fans that can be salvaged for parts.
How to Contact Lowes for Harbor Breeze Replacement Parts with Video
Lowes also stock the Harbor Breeze ceiling fans and along with the new ceiling fan models they also carry a great deal of replacement parts.
It’s worth your effort to take a look at their listings by typing into the search bar: ‘Harbor Breeze Parts’. At the time of writing this article, there were over 140 parts being listed.
If you prefer to speak to a person then you can call their customer service for Harbor Breeze here:
Harbor Breeze support team – 1 (800) 643-0067
This number is the Lowes Harbor Breeze Support number.
When making the call , you will be presented with a number of options, its important to select the following options below:
Option 1: English then Option 2: Harbor Breeze
Remember that the customer support phone number is available Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (Eastern Standard EST)
Also keep in mind you will need to have your model number or item number available, so make sure you have that handy before you make the call.
As stated above, the model number and item number can be found on your receipt, on the box, in the instruction manual or on the top of your ceiling fan near the motor.
I really recommend you call Litex Industries though before calling Lowes as customer help was not very good with Lowes in my opinion.
We had to wait over 5 minutes before anyone answered the phone, and then the person who answered was not very helpful.
If you prefer to use email then you might like to email them using the email address: ascs@lowes(dot)com
Below is a video of our call to Lowes for information on Harbor Breeze replacement parts.
Additional Ways to Locate Your Harbor Breeze Part
The only other way that I can think of for finding a replacement part is to try Craigslist.org
However, I really feel that the recommendations already mentioned above should be sufficient to locate just about any replacement part you may be needing. However, because this is an in-depth article, I will include this additional option just to make the article complete.
As I have stated in other articles Craigslist.org is more of a classified ads website. You can search by any city within the United States (and worldwide if you want to go further abroad) for any product or item and even services.
The search term I would recommend using is ‘Harbor Breeze’ once you have selected the appropriate city.
You need search broader since there are fewer results and listings. Being too specific, such as ‘Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Parts’ will leave you with no or few results.
I don’t recommend Craigslist for searching classifieds, although you might get lucky and just find the replacement part you are looking for. What I find Craigslist good for is placing wanted ads and letting people contact you if they have what you are looking for. You will have to register with Craigslist to place a ‘wanted’ ad.
But again, I feel that this should only be your last resort. The options I have mentioned above are far better for getting the part you may be needing.
To make this article even more complete I have mentioned some of the more sought after replacement parts that you can get for your Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan below.
What Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Replacement Parts are Available
I thought it would be helpful to find out how extensive the parts that are available for purchase are for the Harbor Breeze brand.
I have made a consolidated list below that you can use with the contact information above to get your part. I have also included which contact above is best for providing the part to save you time and effort making calls or checking out places that don’t have that particular item for sale.
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Blade Arms
In this category we found that there is a Universal set of bronze blade arms that you can use to replace any blade arms for any Harbor Breeze 52 inch ceiling fan.
The best place to get these universal arms are on eBay’s website:
The other place we would recommend is contacting Litex Industries directly (See the information above on how to do that)
Harbor Breeze Replacement Light Kit
We found that Amazon had a number of listings with very good pricing for the replacement light kits. The pricing was usually cheaper than most other places online that we checked. Use this Search: Harbor Breeze Light Kit (Affiliate link to Amazon)
However, if you are wanting to pay a little more with a few more options, around 16 different light kits at the time of writing, then the next best option would be Lowes. Use the Search: Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Light Kit
Some of the options available at Lowes include:
- Harbor Breeze 3 light alabaster incandescent light kit
- Harbor Breeze 2 light ceiling fan light kit in either brass, bronze, brushed nickel or white
- Harbor Breeze 4 Light Bronze Incandescent Light Kit
- Harbor Breeze 1 light LED light kit in white, bright brass and antique brass
- Harbor Breeze Calera 1 light aged bronze light kit
- Harbor Breeze Tilghman II 2 light bronze LED light kit
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Blades
The blades can be replaced by a universal blade set that will fit most Harbor Breeze models ranging from 42 inches up to 52 inches with the blade length being 18.6 inches.
You will have to make sure that your drill holes are absolutely correct, but getting it correct can make an old fan new again. You might want to use one of the old blades as a template for drilling the holes correctly for the new blades.
The blades come in a 5 pack and are reversible with pure white on one side and oak finish on the other side.
The best location to find these blades are on Amazon: Harbor Breeze 5 Pack Reversible Ceiling Fan Blades (Affiliate link to Amazon)
However, in saying that there is a great deal more variety on eBay. In fact, after checking eBay I found more than 20 different styles:
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan End Cap
The end cap usually covers the place where a light kit would normally be attached. If you want to remove your light kit then you would use an end cap to make it look tidy.
We haven’t found a reliable source for these as yet. Both Amazon and Lowes appear to have no available stock. Although that may change after the time of writing this article.
You can check current items by searching: ‘Harbor Breeze Parts’ (Affiliate link to Amazon)
However, when we checked eBay there were some available at the time of writing this post.
If you are desperate for this item then you could also try going to a seller on Amazon or eBay who sell Harbor Breeze items and ask them about an end cap. They may have contacts where they are manufactured and may well be able to get you the right part.
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Capacitor
The capacitor is an easy find on Amazon with pretty much 70 or more available through various sellers. Use the link: Harbor Breeze Capacitor (Affiliate link to Amazon)
If your ceiling fan is operating only at one speed no matter what buttons you are pushing then chances are you are going to be needing a new capacitor.
The capacitors we found on Amazon are a universal capacitor compatible with most Harbor Breeze models. However, if you are unsure just check the questions and answers on the sellers listing or the reviews on the sellers listing.
They are pretty cheap so it is worth a try if your ceiling fan spins but only slowly or at a fast speed. Try replacing out the capacitor, you might find that the problem is fixed for a few dollars saving you having to buy a new ceiling fan.
Signs of a bad capacitor in a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan can include:
- The ceiling fan turns slowly or not at all on all of the different speeds
- Ceiling Fan will not start however, will spin if it is started by hand
- Certain speeds on the ceiling fan are slow or do not work
- The ceiling fan motor hums and will turn freely by hand however, it will not spin
If you have any of the above problems then it can’t hurt to change out the capacitor, it’s only a 5-minute job and you can get one at a very good price on Amazon. Again use the link: Harbor Breeze Capacitor (Affiliate link to Amazon)
Harbor Breeze Replacement Globe
The globes are available on Amazon using the search term: ‘Harbor Breeze Globe’ (Affiliate link to Amazon) however if you don’t happen to find any then give Litex Industries a call, they are sure to have them.
Harbor Breeze Remote Controls
For replacement remotes, I would only recommend Amazon as there are plenty of Universal Remotes that work just fine on the Harbor Breeze models. Just take a look at the reviews on the Amazon listings and you will see that many Harbor Breeze ceiling fan owners have found the remotes from Amazon to work just fine.
Use the search term: Harbor breeze Remotes (Affiliate link to Amazon)
We also have a whole article dedicated to helping you troubleshoot, fix and replace your remote control. Please check it out: Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Remote
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Parts Diagram
If you have your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan manual then you can see a parts diagram of your particular model on the first few pages.
Generally, the parts diagram will show you all the working parts that come with your fan in an illustrative way. Take a look at the picture below for the Harbor Breeze Centreville Ceiling Fan
If you do not have a manual then check the information below on how to get a manual for your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan.
Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Manual
If you are looking for a replacement manual then you can find a downloadable copy on Lowes website. Just search for your particular model of ceiling fan then take a look at the product listing.
Scroll down to the ceiling fan description, then on the right-hand side, there should be a downloadable link for the installation guide in PDF format.
A nice thing with the manual is that they also list all of the replacement parts and give the item number to make it easy when ordering. An example of this is below:
We will be putting many of the links to the manuals and guides on our website in the future so keep an eye out.

How Do You Troubleshoot a Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan?
The first place you should check is the installation manual that you should have received when you first bought the ceiling fan. There should be some troubleshooting tips in the guide.
If that doesn’t help then take a look at the list below. Please note this is a general list and you should always seek the professional advice from a qualified electrician before attempting any electrical fixes to your fan.
- Check that the batteries are ok and check and push the reset button that is located under the cover.
- Check your light bulb wattage, and make sure that the watts don’t exceed a total of 190 watts, since the ceiling fan has a built-in energy-saving limiter function. This function will cause your fan to stop working if the watts exceed 190 watts.
- Lower the ceiling fan canopy and check the downrod assembly to make sure all of the screws are tight.
- Check all of the wire connections and make sure that the wires are 12 gauge. The black or hot wire operates the ceiling fan, the white wire operates the light and fan and the green wire is the ground wire. Make sure you also check the pin connection on the mounting bracket.
- Turn the power on and then press the reset button, you will need to hold it down until the light comes on and the ceiling fan goes to the medium speed setting.
TIP: If you have more than one ceiling fan in your home then there may be a conflict with the dip switch settings. You will need to consult a (link)dip switch setting diagram and adjust the settings and then reprogram the fans as necessary.
- Check pull strings
- If your ceiling fan light is not turning on then the signal is not being sent to the ceiling fan – you will need to adjust the frequency dip switch settings on the remote control and on the ceiling fan itself.
If your Harbor Breeze Ceiling Fan Does Not Spin
- The season slide switch may not be engaged, you will need to firmly push the season slide switch either to the right or left on the remote control.
- The switch on the wall may be turned off, make sure it is turned on.
- The power may be switched off or the fuse breaker may be blown, turn the power on and also check the fuse.
- There is a faulty wire connection. Make sure you turn the power off and then check all of the wiring connections in the outlet ceiling box.
Fan Won’t Turn – And Lights Working
- Check the power to the ceiling fan.
- Check the reversing switch and make sure the reversing switch is not in between positions.
- If the ceiling fan looks like it is trying to turn and a bad groan sound is heard or smoke is seen then turn off the ceiling fan and replace the motor.
Lights don’t work – but fan operates correctly
- Check all of the light bulbs and make sure that they are installed correctly. Check for the proper bulb wattage and make sure that the total power of the all the light bulbs is less than 190 watts.
- Make sure that the light kit wire pin connections on the mounting bracket are connected correctly.
- Turn the power off and inspect all of the wire connections to make sure there is no faulty wire connection. If you have any other issues other than the ones above then consult the installation guide.
