Bottom lights do not turn off

Hampton fan bottom light does not turn off, previous fan had fan and lights control by the two switches on the wall, I believe this is on the one switch(when this was installed I did not see the work done). Could this be the problem?

    Thge previuos fan was controlled by one switch for the fana dn the other the lights on the fan. This was installed and one switch does nothing. The lights go on when the switch is turned on and the remote does control the fand and the upper lights. The lower ones do not respond. I was thinking that the person who hooked it up put everyhting on one switch but before I took the thing down I thought I would check here

    It's hard to say what the problem could be without knowing what wires you have going where. If you have two switches on the wall, then are both switches doing anything? Does the fan work on one switch and the light doesn't work on the other switch? Did it used to work?

If you have a remote for the fan and light, then it makes sense that only one wall switch operates as a master switch. Then as far as why the remote doesn't operate the lower light, the question I would have is whether the remote you have for the new fan came with it or not? If the remote you have has a button for the upper light and a button for the lower light, then you need to make sure that the reciever in the fan has wires for both lights. On the receiver there should be a black and white for the power and neutral coming from the switch. Then there will be a white wire for the neutral to the fan, a black wire going to the fan, and probably a blue wire for one of the lights. If there is another wire on that reciever (it may be orange or some other color) that would be the wire for the other light. That would be simple... four wires from the fan to four wires coming off the reciever. What you might have is four wires coming from the fan, and three wires (other than the black and white which connect to the wires from the switch) coming from your reciever. The way around that is to connect the two lighting wires from the fan to the one lighting wire from the reciever. Then when you press one of the light buttons on the remote, the upper and lower lights will always come on together. The other possibility is that there is a problem with the lower light kit itself. I would first check the wiring inside the canopy of the fan where the receiver most likely is.

Replaced 2 of 4 bulbs with 75watt bulbs. It sparked upon turning on the light and now the light does not work at all. Fan still works????


In the cealing where the fan is mounted, you have wires in the switch the control the fan speeds, to the motor and wires that control the light. Most likely there is a wire exposed or short that every time you turn light on, it of course blows light out. Als check , open up switch on wall first to make sure no loose wire on wall switch. Please turn of breaker first, make SURE power is off. Please if this advice helped, give me 4 thumbs to help me and others, thanks, Mike

Ceiling fan


mcdevito75 here, You"ll have to remove the cover close to the ceiling to get at the switch, Make sure the wall switch and fuse are out. Note the wire position and replace the switch with 1 from a hardware store. Are you sure that toggle switch is for the lights, as you should have another for the fan. Usually the wakk switch is used to turn the lights on and a toggle switch used to start the fan.

The problem may not be with the fan, but with the wall switch. Try changing the wall switch and see if that works, sometimes they go bad.

Wiring ceiling fans to wall switch


Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.
