Sounds like the remote control receiver has gone, replace the receiver. Purchase them seperatley very common for these to play up, even new ones made in China especially arlec brand !
Easy to get a new one though, find them at home depot or hardware and lighting stores. the receivers simply go at the top of the fan where they meet the ceiling. Easy to wire up too. But should be done by an electrician, athough it's not rocket science.
I would suggest getting an electrician to check the current running through the wiring. I had installed a similar fan in my grandmother's house a couple of years ago and had the same problem. After a couple of months of constantly changing bulbs, I brought in an electrician to check the current and found that there was a short in the wire which kept causing just enough of a current surge to blow the bulbs.
We were able to get 3 fans running again by replacing the capacitor which had melted in all 3 fans. On one of the fan's the casing around the motor was extremely hot, which prompted us to act quickly. I suppose the fan had been trying to start itself. We purchased the capacitors at an electrical supplier at a cost of $15 each. We were not able to locate the type of capacitors which came with the fan. I am now looking for replacement capacitors at a lower cost if possible. Does anyoe have suggestions of a reputable online dealer for capacitors at a reasonable cost? I would like to keep some on hand.
