The he bolt only holds the stem and doesn't have anything to do with removing the fan. You need to open the canopy and lift the stem ball through the bracket to remove the fan. All stem fans are attached in the bracket.

If the fan is a ceiling hugger, remove the blades, drop the motor cover and you'll see the screws holding it to the ceiling.
