Question about Hampton Bay 24750 Huntington III Ceiling Fan
I have a remote on the fan. When I turn the lights off, the CFL still flickers. any ideas.
I believe the flickering comes from the way the CFLs extinguish themselves after the remote turns them off. As the other poster said, turning them off with the wall switch as well after turning them off with the remote stops the flickering.
It is because the remotes are a dual mesh type of signal, which uses the RF as well as the electrical power to activate and turn them off.
Actually, this type bulb is not designed to work as well in dimmers or remote switches as is incandescent. You will find if you replace them with regular incandescent they will not flicker.

You cant use a CFL in a remote operated fan. The starters built into the bulbs still pick up power when they are switched off at the remote. They act more like a dimmer swich and not a true off switch. The bulb will act like its a drop in current and fire its starter off over and over attempting to restart. Thats the flicker you see at night.
If you search you may be able to find a CFL that is made to work with a dimmer switch, or you can use a LED bulb or even a standard bulb to prevent this.
