Ceiling Fan

I was changing out a ceiling fan and cannot figure out how to take the old one down. I have hung a few fans, ceiling huggers and down rod types. This looks like a down rod type with the ceiling trim right against the motor with no rod to see and it is mounted solid as a rock.Any ideas?
Thanks,
Rodney

Welcome to the forums.

I just hung a similar fan. It's much easier getting the trim on then off.
Look where I placed the red arrow. That piece of plastic trim will turn roughly one inch counter clockwise and drop down revealing three mounting screws. Those three screws hold the fan up to the mount.

In the following video..... go to 3:25.
It will show you installing the three screws and then then the locking trim ring.

Got it replaced. Ironic that the fan I hung was made for close ceiling installation if needed. Never seen it before. I always bought ceiling huggers for low ceilings. Thanks for the help.
