Question about Hampton Bay AC418-OBB 60'' Brookedale Oil Brushed Bronze Ceiling Fan
I have a Hampton Bay 60" ceiling fan that has three 40w candleabra bulbs for lights and is controlled by remote. The model # is AC-418 and the fan and lights are rated at AC120v, 60Hz, .8 amps (3.0 Ap max). While the lights were on (no fan) one of the bulbs blew with quote a spark (blue spark and loud buzz). The bulb was burnt on the inside and I can see where it sparked on the outside (from the base). The base of the bulb actually had a large hole burnt in to it as well. I replaced the bulb with another just like what was taken out and all three lights work fine. My problem is that now the remote won't turn the lights off any more. The remote still works for the fan though. There is a slight dimming when I try to use the remote to turn off the lights now. Thanks for your time.
There is a receiver in the fan that when the light blew might have damaged that part of the receiver. I think you can buy them,but you will have to get into the base of the fan(ceiling cover).
