Question about Hampton Bay AC418-OBB 60'' Brookedale Oil Brushed Bronze Ceiling Fan

40w candleabra bulb blew now can't turn lights off with remote

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).

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 :)

Hampton Bay Brookdale ceiling fan model 761-567. Lights are not working. I have 123 volts at the light sockets but the 40w bulbs are very dim. Sometimes the lights will not come on at all.


I'm having the same issue, which is how I found your complaint. I googled the issue and your problem was the first to pop up. I have no idea how to fix it and I am wondering if you had any luck, or if you just went out and bought a new one?

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.

Bulbs burning out in Hampton Bay ceiling fan


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.

Installing ceiling fan with two switches AND a remote


in your ceiling box should be three wires. a red goes to the three way switches, a black goes to the hot and the white is the neutral. the fan wires are black, blue and white. since you have a remote, connect the [fan] blue & black together with the [line] black. connect all white wires together. the remote will now ramp up your lights from off to full on and the fan remote will let you choose lo med high and off. just tape up the red wire in the box.
