    I Have a Hampton Bay Fan Light from Home Depot and the new CFL light bulb's that I put in will flicker when I turn them off with the remote control. Although if I turn off the light switch after I turn them off with the remote control, then they do not flicker.

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.

If you have a ceiling fan, they often suffer remote operation failure as a result of a power interruption. Try disconnecting the power source. Leave the local switches and chains alone. After a brief pause, apply source power again and try remote operation

The problem is that the CFL lamps, once they are lit, will stay energized by a very low level of current, and the remote obviously is not what we would call a positive off device .. if you use the wall switch and then go back to the remote in the off position , do the lights come on flickering again? You could try another brand of remote.

It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

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.

Lights flicker when turned off by remote


I had this same problem with a Hampton Bay fan with a remote light switch. I call the manufacturer of the of the switch and was told that the model switch I had would not work correctly with CFL bulbs. The problem is with the dimmer function. You either need to change the bulbs to incandescent, or change the remote receiver in the ceiling. Hampton Bay was kind enough to send me a new receiver that works with CFL. The CFL units are white, and the incandescent is black. Hope this helps you.
