Question about Hampton Bay AC434-WB 52'' Ponte Vecchio Weathered Bronze Ceiling Fan

1 Answer

Hampton Bay Ponte Vecchio ceiling fan light flickers

Hampton Bay Ponte Vecchio ceiling fan w/ remote was just installed. When lights are turned on, the down lights flicker once briefly and then turn on as normal. The up light operates normally. How do we fix the down light and eliminate the initial flicker?

Also, the fan comes with a solid-state remote device and the manual warns not to use a solid-state remote device. Why do you think it would come with a device that they warn you not to use?

Try swapping out the bulbs and see what happens. There are bulbs made specifically for ceiling fans that have heavier duty filaments in the bulbs, or you could use compact fluorescents. The warning about using a solid state control was referring to using a solid state dimmer at the wall switch.
