Compact Flourescents won't work in ceiling fan

Simply use regular bulbs. It sounds like it is switched electronically probably via a dimmer. If the CFL lamps are not specifically labeled dimmable they won't work. I have seen the LED lights work where the CFL lamps will not. If you want to use CFL then replace the dimmer.

My hunter ceiling fan light keeps turning on randomly, it has been installed for @3 years (just recently started doing this). I have a remote control

There may be another remote control in the room/house that is causing it to turn on. A member of my family has a fan that uses a remote, when they turn on their stereo it also activated the dimmer on their ceiling fan light.

step 1 would be to ensure that it isnt other remotes that are causing this to happen.

step 2 would be to replace the batteries in the remote for the fan. once they are replaced use the remote to turn on and off the functions that are being turned on randomly.

if it is not anything to do with remotes, have the person that put it in for you disconnect it from power completely to try to reset the control board.

if that doesnt help, you may have a defective product that needs to be replaced.

if this doesnt work, report back with some more detail and I will try to help.

My fan and light do not work and I was told that the relay needs to be replaced. Is that true and if so, where can I pruchase one?

If neither the fan nor the light work, check that there is power to the fan unit first. If it is remote controlled and there is power to the unit, any relays would be on a PC board inside the fan and will not easily be replaced.

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.

Does the fan/light fitting have manual switches, pullcords?

If so, are you sure the manual switch for the light is in the 'on' position? The remote will not override the manual switch, so it must be on.

Apologies if you have already thought of this.

Changing light bulb in ceiling fan

At the top of the pull chain there is a metal piece; this is threaded on a bolt. Unscrew the metal piece and lower the globe to expose the bulbs then remove and replace the bulb(s). I recommend flourescents as they are more economical, run cooler and last linger than incandescents (regular bulbs).

Light flickers when dimmer switch isn't ''just right''

Compact fluorescent bulbs do not work on dimmers.  You have to use standard incandescent bulbs or not dim the lights.
