Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.

The two bulbs are just having a separate live cable in parallel with the one of the motor.

So since you have mentioned that you had a burned bulb this sometimes causes a short inside the receptacle of the bulb. So you just need to disassemble the receptacle of the burned bulb and check both the wires live and neutral they are loose or disconnect or even melt and disconnect.

Is a simple operation since you need to check only two wires however it not so easy to remove the bulbs and reconnect the wires.

Hunter ceiling fan/light unit install with 3 pole switches. there are 2 white, 2 black and one orange wires coming out of the electrical box. How do i handle the installation?

Not understanding, three pole switch is a wrong switch, wires in the ceiling or wall electric box.
Needed: What switch is existing and what wires are in the switch box and runs or groups in each run coming in as wire groups. Same for ceiling box, colors and wires in each run coming in.
Basically, remove the existing ceiling fixture and connect the ceiling fan replacing the fixture to the same wires the fixture was connected to. White to white, green or bare to green or bare, colored wire to fan's blue and black. Wired like this one switch controls both fan and light, on and off at same time. Use fan pull chain switch for individual fan or light control.

Our hunter fan is less than 2 years old. the fan works fine but suddenly the light fixture will not work. changing the bulbs did not help

Do you have a separate wall switch controlling the lights that may be turned off and possibly not realize it? If all lights just stoped working and you are sure that their is no switch turned off controlling the lights, then you likely have a bad fan controller inside the fan housing, or a wire has come loose. If you are electrically handy, open the fan housing and check to see if you have power to the fan light wire. All of the lights going out at once sounds like a wire possibly a neutral (white) wire may have a bad connection.

We have Lithonia 2 bulb fixtures in a recessed ceiling. We currently have 2 (25) watt bulbs in them. What wattage can I upgrade to ??

The ballast inside the fixture is rated to operate 2 25w bulbs. You can't put higher wattage bulbs in this fixture, unless you change the ballast. Sorry.

Hello. I need help with my fan, please. I have hampton bay ac-527 nn sku# 360-424 . Trying To remove light To replace burned out bulb light but having trouble removing. HELP ME PLEASE. Mike

You got me wondering about a fan I have with an enclosed bowl-like light fixture (I don't know how closely this resembles your model, but bulb access is not immediately obvious on it either). I looked on top of the light section and found a #2 Phillips screw on the top plate of the light fixture near the rim. It seems likely that loosening or removing it will let the bowl come out at the bottom of the fixture so you can get at the bulb. You will probably need a short-handled screwdriver to get in under the motor housing. There are also three #2 Phillips screws going into the side of the cylindrical section below the fan blades at the bottom; this section has the fan and light chain-operated switches attached to it. Those probably attach the entire light fixture to the rest of the fan.

Fixture not working after bulb change

"CFLs" Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (with built in ballast) must be labeled as dimmable to be used on a dimmer circuit.

Traditional fluorescent fixtures must have a dimmable ballast installed inside and can be used with standard fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamps must be sized to match the ballast. CFL's are matched at the factory, but others are not. Older fluorescent lamp fixtures have a ballast inside. A type rating is to operate (2) 48 inch / 40 watt lamps. Newer fluorescent lamps are rated for 32 watts, and these will not work - or will have a greatly reduced life.

If you installed CFL's, the first thing I would do is install regular incandescent lamps and see if it works as expected. If not, something else is wrong - otherwise - make sure you've got the right lamps in the fixture.

Light bullbs blowing

This can often happen when the wrong size light bulbs are used in a fixture. If the fixture states to use only 60 watt bulbs and you instead install 100 watt bulbs the life of the bulb will be greatly shortened and they can and often do cause more than one bulb to fail.

Newly installed Hunter remote will work light and fan if only 2 of the 3 bulbs are installed.

Did you install the correct wattage? If you put in 2-60 watt try 3-40 watt instead .

How to change bulb thats a t8 fluresent fixture in a home

A Lot of the T8 style have very little room to move the tubes around, check a few things:
See if you need to remove the tubes in a specific order,
See if the ends of the fixture are removable,
Instead of dropping both ends of the tube drop one side first,
Sometimes after the tube has been twisted and dropped slightly you may have to maneuver the pins to avoid the fixture.

Hi Does the light fixture have a globe under the fan? What does the light fixture look like? Most of the light fixtures have small screw surrounding the globe that simply unscrew and the globe drops down. All fans are different and I will have to know what this one looks like. In the mean time I will look at some hunter fans on line and see what I find.

I have a Cooper R10, PLC, 13Watt 64/4P, Made in China light bulb. We placed the fixture on the exterior of the house to light our back door. The bulb produces a white light. Is there the same product...

Well, I got an email back from Cooper Lighting. They do not sell a yellow bulb for this fixture. HOWEVER, they gave me the specs for the bulb, and by punching those specs into Google, I was able to find a seller on eBay who sells this product.

They want $15.99 plus $6.99 shipping for this 4-pin light bulb that fits my fixtures outside my back door and in front of my garage door.... just because it is yellow (bug light) instead of white. These things are almost impossible to find. However, I refuse to spend that much for a yellow bulb, especially since I need TWO of them (two fixtures), and they cost MORE than the whole fixture did. Instead, I went online and purchased some yellow fluorescent tube guards... the kind you use to put on regular fluorescent tubes to make them appear a different color (they also provide a safety net in case the tube breaks or shatters), and I will cut it to the proper length and place it over the existing bulb to make it yellow. Since the tube is 4 feet long, I will have plenty to make several covers. Problem solved at less than half the price.5_29_2012_10_26_38_pm.jpg
