Did I burn out my chandelier?

The lights were flickering and I heard a crackling sound coming from the switch. I turned off the chandelier and changed the fuse, When I turned the light back on it wouldn't come back on. I took out the bulbs and saw that some were 40 watts and some were 60 watts. I tried to use two 25 watt bulbs but no juice! Did I ruin it ?

It sounds like you have indeed bought fluorescent bulbs. manufacturers are encouraged to replace the incandescent bulbs with more energy saving fluorescent bulbs. They are made to look like standard bulbs so you need to look at the package carefully to see the difference. The Nu Tone and other special bulbs may still be available in the old filament style for a while but you may have to look harder or ask if they are still available. The amount of flicker often reflects the quality of the bulb. It will sometimes decrease over time.

Ceiling fan lights flicker in bedroom with 23watt cfl bulbs


Sounds like an older unit that has either a dimmer or electronic switch. You need to use dimmable CFL lamps.

The problem is that the CFL lamps, once they are lit, will stay energized by a very low level of current, and the remote obviously is not what we would call a positive off device .. if you use the wall switch and then go back to the remote in the off position , do the lights come on flickering again? You could try another brand of remote.

I can help with this but I need some more clarification. Does the switch on the wall not do anything at all, or does it turn them both off or on. The black wires are the power wires and the whites are your neutrals. You figure out what wires are coming from your switch. If there was a switch on the wall that controlled your chandelier before that there has to be a white and black wire that go to that switch. Look at the switch in the wall. If all you see in the switch box is a black and white wire then they did a switch loop, which means they started the power up in the fan box, sent it out to the switch through the white wire and brought it back to the fan through the black wire in which case the one white wire up in the fan box is a powered wire. If there are four wires in the switch box (2 black two white), then they brought the power into the switch box, tied the whites together as neutrals and connected the blacks to the switch. So then up at your fan the white is neutral and black is power. To wire a switch loop at your fan, find the power wire, connect it to the white wire that goes out to your switch and the black wire from your switch will get connected to your fan motor and fan light. If it was not a a switch loop connect fan to the black coming from the switch and all whites will get tied together. Good luck!!

Light above shower makes crackling sound


If the light is flickering with the crackling, it's probably the sound of electricity arcing that you're hearing. This needs immediate attention by someone who knows electricity as it could be a fire hazard.

Hunter ceiling fan. Lights and fans turn on and off by themselves.Both fans are on the same wall switch and are operated by separate remotes.


I just installed a 2nd hunter fan model 23811 that also seems to be controlled by grimlins. If the power is left on, the light and fan randomly turn on and off. And no, it is not due to fans being on the same frequency. It appears to be an issue with the control module. I'm contacting Hunter.

Trip the breaker and verify that the fan/light will not operate. If tripping the breaker kills the circuit and flipping the wall switch would not, the switch is probably bypassed. Place the wall switch to "off" with the breaker tripped to the "off" position as well. Gain access to your wiring connections at the fan. Look for a single (black) wire that is not connected. This should be your hot return from the wall switch Make your fan/light connections to this wire. (Are you sure that the ground wire that you connected is a ground? If it is, it should be bare copper with no insulation). Your white (neutral) connection to the three white wires should be fine. If you don't find a single wire in the ceiling box, call on an electrician. Regards --WoobieDog--

New bulbs in chandelier don't work


A light bulb is not a terribly complicated thing. I think you're saying that the bulbs are OK, but they do not seem to function in some of the chandelier sockets. Is that correct?

Assuming the bulbs are not burned out, the only reason this would occur is if they are not making good electrical contact with the socket. The bulb makes contact in two places, on is the threaded base and the other is the metal contact on the base of the bulb. My guess would be they are not threading in quite right and then you're not able to screw them all the way in so the base makes electrical contact.

Before you rate this solution I hope you'll take into account that I'm not paid to do this, I'm just trying to help. I have no idea what you're reaction will be, but I'm really getting tired of getting poor ratings for trying to help...especially when I seem to be the only one who responds on a question.
