Question about Dryers
After i installed light fixture when it turned night the light bulb kept blinking. so i assumed it was bad so i bought another light fixture the model and that one started blinking also.
If this is a unit that is supposed to turn on when it's dark, then the problem is that the sensor is "seeing" too much of it's own light. That is, when it get's dark it turns on, but the light it provides is telling the unit that it is sunrise and should be turned off. Find the sensor and cover it with tape, this will keep the light on. Now try to figure out where the brightness is that the sensor "sees". It may be a reflection from a nearby white surface. You might be able to redirect the lights (if they are reflector bulbs), or you might be able to paint the reflecting surface a brighter color, or you might be able to fashion a visor out of tape to shade the sensor from the reflected light. Good luck!

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.

Read the manual to find out which size bulbs (base size and wattage) you need.
If you did use the right type of bulb and it lasted only 2 weeks, take them back to the store where you boght them for a refund.

My fan just stopped working - no lights no fan :( and I just can't seem to find any type of switch - only the remote, which lights up just fine. Can anyone help???

Hello burrow31. There maybe a switch located on the fan stating 'remote/manual'. Check your manual. Remove the battiers in your remote and short out the battery contact terminals. Reinstall the battiers, start the fan and after fan has reached set speed press & hold fan speed button for one second. Still no speed change contact the Mgfr. with model & serial #.

Skill, patience, preseverance, and experience. You ned to cut and strip the wires so they "just fit" into the space provided leading to the connectyion screws. no room for stuffing , and no extra wiggle room for and bends or kinks .. You mightb try mounting the wires and then pushing the extra wire back up intio the ceiling junction box, thats what I do.
