Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan

I have a Hampton Bay "Fair Isle' ceiling fan that has been burning out bulbs approximately every 10-14 days since installation 14 months ago. In the last month bulbs are lasting between 5 seconds and 48 hours. All have been major brand 40-60w with candleabra base made for ceiling fans. Fan itself is rarely used so vibration doesn't seem to be the problem. Any ideas to solve this problem?

I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.

Can I replace the 3 40 watts bulbs that came with my Hampton Bay Hawkins 44" ceiling fan with 3 60 watt bulbs?


You would be better off getting 3 40watt daylight bulbs.. extreamly bright low cost and wont cause any harm to your fan.. hope this helps :)

Light kit has light bulb size that I cannot find bulbs for


Melanie, you must have gotten a bad batch of bulbs. I have installed over 100 Hampton Bay ceiling fans and I have dropped them from up the ladder and have them bounce across the floor with no damage. I think they must have allowed a substandard batch to go out.

Home Depot is where I buy my replacement bulbs. Hampton Bay make fans exclusively for HD.

You can easily change lighting bases, as the wiring is the same for all Hampton Bay. You may even appeal to Hampton Bay on the internet and they might send you the kits. But I don't think you'd have success in a store.

If you try replacing them with bulbs from another Home Depot you may find them much hardier. I wish you the best of luck, and if you need additional help please write back.

Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Plastic Burning Smell


I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)

Hampton Bay Ponte Vecchio ceiling fan light flickers


Try swapping out the bulbs and see what happens. There are bulbs made specifically for ceiling fans that have heavier duty filaments in the bulbs, or you could use compact fluorescents. The warning about using a solid state control was referring to using a solid state dimmer at the wall switch.

Hampton Bay ceiling fan with pull chains not working


Whether there is a reset switch on this unit or not would depend on the model. If you no longer have the owners manual you should be able to get it from the hampton web site. Many fans have a thermal fuse inline that probably was blown when the bulb broke. The cheaper models do not and then I would guess you burned out the switch.
