Question about Hunter 28096 Westminster 52" Ceiling Fan with Light
I recently installed the above fan. There is around 2 second delay when you turn the light switch on. I went and purchased another exact fan and it's doing the same thing? Any possible solutions?
Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.
"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."
Pretty annoying if you ask me.

Remove the limiter from the circuit... Light works fine without it. Just remember to use 40 W 120V Candelabra bulbs.
Disconnect "Light Out" (red wire) from the 4 black light socket wires, Disconnect the black "Live In" wire from the limiter. Connect the black wire from switch (that went to "Live In") and connect it to the 4 black wires going to the light sockets. Cut the "Common in" wire close to the limiter, strip it, remove the "Common Out" wire (white) from the 4 white (neutrel) light socket wires. Attach the stripped "Common In" white wire to the 4 white light socket wires. Limiter should now be completely removed from circuit, and black wire coming from pull chain light switch should be hooked directly to 4 black light socket wires. The 4 white light socket wires should have a white wire labeled "Common In" hooked to them. Hope this helps.

If you're using a fluorescent light, this is normal.

If your Fan is less than a year old it's probably still under warranty. Mine was! I called Hunter and they sent out a new light ***'y. Fixed the problem and believe me nobody touches that fan but me! Good luck everyone!
