Where do I find the maker of this fan?

Here are a few pictures of the fan. I did a mirror on top of the outside of the motor but I didn't take anything apart since I don't know where or how to. I have a ladder and tools ready for instructions. Also, it looks like brushed nickel if anyone thinks it is a different color please state what you think it is.
Any help is greatly appreciated. TIA. ~Cynthia

I am trying to find out whether or not this light can be put on it. I have the electrician coming out Thursday, so I need to find the maker to see if this... Wayfair Light Kit is compatible.

Most lights fit but you will have to take light off to see the mount. Globe usually held on by 3 or 4 screws around top of globe.

Ok, it's a Harbor Breeze. Will this Wayfair fit or do I need to find one that is made by Harbor Breeze?



Harbor Breeze is the brand but my question still stands. Will the 4 bulb base that I show here fit the Harbor Breeze fan? You can see how limited I am with those 2 little lightbulbs. This is a workroom that I will need a lot of light because I am working with color. *plus my eyes are old* LOL Thanks so much for replying so fast!

That does not look like it will work.

If the reversing switch for the fan is in the section just above the light...... then that new light kits is not compatible. The reversing switch and wiring can't be removed.

what about this one? Probably not is my guess. I need at least 3 bulbs with regular size light bulb sockets. *old 60-watt bulbs* I am trying to get as much light as I can without causing problems.

Because of the fan FWD/REV switch you have to keep the existing shroud. Look at how the existing lamp holder is mounted on it. You need something that can mount the same way on the center below the shroud. Check installation instructions for universal units you are looking at to see if center mounting is an option. In any case you can increase the amount of light (with a new fixture) by using LED bulbs that are not enclosed in a glass bowl. An LED that provides the equivalent of a 60 watt incandescent bulb draws only about 14 watts. If the bulbs are not enclosed you could use a 100 W equivalent LEDs and be well within the electrical limits

That was probably the best move and the least amount of hassle. Happy Holidays to you too.

Unhappy

Glad you thought of that!

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in trying to answer the question that I forget to consider other alternatives. (Where's that Head-Butting icon?)
