I had a simple question and you wanted me to pay you to answer it.

I am still hoping to get a CFL lightbulb with socket size E17 to provide more light for my kitchen, but you won't help.

Screw you all.

What type of light bulb do I need for a minkaAire ceiling fan. It is about 7 years old


It all depends on which light kit was installed on your fan. As you described the fixture as requiring a "light bulb" meaning a singular bulb, Minka Aire usually uses several different types.

The most common is either a 40-watt or 60-watt Candelabra Bulbs.
(The designation "Candelabra" refers to its screw base. You can buy these in clear or frosted, torpedo or globe with a straight tip or curved. Etc.
Here's an example of a torpedo globe:
Sunlite 60 Watt Torpedo Tip Chandelier Candelabra Base Frost 48 Pack
And here's an example of a Candelabra globe:
Sunlite 60 Watt G16 5 Globe Candelabra Base Clear 48 Pack

Some of their fixtures use a 50-watt Mini-Can Xenon Bulb.
Satco S1914 50W MINI CAN FROSTED 120V

And other use a 3w CFL Medium Base Bulb.
3W CFL Deco 2700K Medium Base

When installing a CFL, Halogen or Xenon bulb, I recommend cleaning the glass with an alcohol wipe to remove any oil from fingerprints. Due to the very high temperatures these lamps operate at, the oil from your fingers will cause a hot-spot on the glass and can shorten the life of the bulb dramatically.

If none of the references I offered match the bulb in your actual fixture, you might be able to more closely match the fixture from one on the following page. The recommended bulb for each fixture is listed in the description of the fixture.
https://www.ceilingfan.com/Minka-Aire-Fan-Lights-s/2082.htm

And as always, NEVER over-lamp a fixture with a bulb rated at a higher wattage than what's shown on the base of the fixture. That is, never use a 60-watt bulb in a fixture rated at 40-watts. The additional heat of the bulb may harden the insulation of the wiring in the fixture creating, causing the insulation to fail and create a fire hazard. Also for fixtures located tight to the ceiling, higher temperatures can dry out the gypsum ceiling material, causing it to crack and deteriorate.

Can I replace the 13 watt CFL bulbs in my fan light fixture with a higher watt bulb


The bulb fixture itself should tell you what the max wattage is that you can put in there but they are normally at a 60watt limit.

Kendal fan/light remote UC7208T doesn't dim


If you have CFL bulbs they won't dim. There should be a switch to change remote from CFL to incandesant light inside the transmitter. You'll have to match settings with settings in receiver.

Newly installed Hunter remote will work light and fan if only 2 of the 3 bulbs are installed.


Did you install the correct wattage? If you put in 2-60 watt try 3-40 watt instead .

I just replaced my bulbs on my ceiling fan light fixture with the compact flourescent bulbs 13 watt to replace the regular 60 watt bulbs but they are flickering now. Could there be a problem with wiring...


Your remote control I would assume includes a dimmer for the light. CFL bulbs are not compatible with dimmers. If it has a dimmer, you must use incandescent bulbs.

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off


You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

MAXIMUM WATTAGE FOR FAN LIGHTS??????


those bulbs are candelabra type. if they came with the fixture then I wouldn't go to a higher wattage bulb. the sockets are probably bakelite and mounted with the base up so any heat off the lamps would be directed upwards. higher wattage bulbs may shorten the lifespan of the sockets. bakelite is a modified plastic. it won't melt but it will get brittle.
