Smc fan light kit LL 301

This light uses the small decorative bulbs with small screw in bottoms. The sockets are dead, lights aren't working and we'd like to replace them. Do you know if there are replacement parts available?

SOURCE: Fan does not run, light kit still works

Hi Larry,

Several possiblities come to mind.

1) Electric motors attract dust and lint; enough can either cause the motor to overheat or just physically clog. Regular vacuuming helps, but you may have to pull it apart to check (de-energize that wiring circuit first).
2. Look for any loose wire connections. If you have a multi-meter, use it to check for continuity between the various wires.

3. Look at the motor for signs of scorching or other physical damage. If the previous two steps don't fix it, you're likely looking for a new/rebuilt motor.

Fixing #1 or #2 are probably within the capabilities of the average homeowner; if #3 is the problem, you probably aren't going to rewind the motor - - you might want to check back here with an update (and feedback?).

SOURCE: palm beach 48"

I just installed two Palm Beach fans with lights. The instructions inside the box say 100 watt max. On the outside it says 75 watt. I picked out two 100 watt halogen bulbs with the mini candelabra base. Before leaving Home Depot I asked for a light kit to be opened just to check I had the right bulbs. Surprise! The light kits in stock now take standard base bulbs. When I got the bulbs home it took a couple of attempts to line up the bulb with the fixture, but it was no real problem.

Most hardware stores carry replacement sockets. Go to Lowes, or Home depot and ask one of the workers there.

SOURCE: I have a Hunter model 21241 ceiling fan with

The ballast is still available on the internet, just Google "veb82122." They want $37 plus shipping. You can also but a 22W Circiline ballast at Home Depot that will work for about $18. (Lowes does not carry them). The original ballast is a solid state design, light weight and instant on. The Home Depot ballast is the heavy transformer kind and a real pain to modify the bracket to make it fit. I have 8 of these Hunter fans and I have installed the Home Depot ballast on two if them so far, but I think that I will order the solid state version as a spare for the next time.

SOURCE: minka aire concept II ceiling fan bulb replacement

The glass dome is tightened firmly in the factory, so removal is difficult. When removal is attempted to, the metal housing to which the dome is attached will spin with it, making removal impossible. To see what I'm talking about, look in the small space between the dome and the bottom of the blade housing - it looks like a metal flange, but this is only the bottom of the reflective metal canister that holds the light. Note that there are 4 "dimples" around the circumference of this housing, facing inward. These dimples are what hold the glass dome in place. The trick is to use a rigid piece of wood or metal about the size of a 12" ruler and place the corner of that ruler in one of those dimples - FIRMLY. Then, a second person can get some leverage on the glass dome and "unscrew" it from the housing (counter-clockwise). The purpose of holding the ruler-sized material against the dimple is to keep the housing from spinning with the dome. This is easier said than done, but it will work.

How do I replace ceiling light fixture

Get our the instructions that came with the new lamp. Be prepared to follow them. There is a breaker to the lights in the area. open the breaker. turn off the lightswitch too. use a drop light for lights. alternating current causes your muscles to contract, dont touch or you will grab the wires if hot. check dead with volt meter. remove the current light. probably a decorative nut in the middle that will screw off, lefty loosey... take cover down, remove bulbs, should be 2 screws that mount light to junction box up by base. remove those, whole thing shold come down. now you see 2 or 3 wires and nuts. undo the wire nuts, and the ground wire, remove light. Install per the instructions, it should go something like this... install new ground wire, install new light power, black to black white to white. add wire nuts. screw new lamp to junction box, routing wires. add bulbs, and decorative cover.

How to replace dashboard lights on Mazda MPV

I had the same problem with a 2002 MAZDA MPV. Here's what you need to do.

First take off the decorative trim around the dashboard. for help, watch the beginning of this tutorial on changing your radio (which you aren't doing but it shows how to remove the trim).

Then there are three phillips screws holding in the gauge cluster (two on the bottom, one on the top). Unscrew these

Once you've freed the cluster, pull it out so you can access the three cables on the top of the unit. They have tabs on them and are a little difficult to pull out but with a little jiggling, they come free.

Adjust your steering wheel so it is a low as it will go in order to give you room to take out the cluster.

The back of the cluster has little sockets with TOSHIBA V-2 on them. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and twist counterclockwise to remove the lights.

NOTE: the plastic socket that you have removed is a separate piece from the bulb itself. You need to gently remove the bulbs from the sockets with your fingers or a pair of pliers. Be careful not to shatter the bulb in your hand

You have two options for replacing the light bulbs. You can buy replacement incandescent bulbs or buy LED equivalent bulbs.

I chose to replace them with LEDs because they were cheaper. However, when I switched them out, they were blinding (even when my dash was dimmed). Now, they have started to flicker when the radio is on and have all started to die one by one. It might be that they were from china or that the LEDs are drawing different current than the original lights. I'm currently switching back to the original style and hoping that fixes the problem. So if you do switch out to LED I recommend that you do not throw out your original incandescent ones if any are still good.

Note: When installing the LED lights, the polarity matters when inserting the socket base back into the cluster (i.e. they can be installed backwards). I don't know of any identifying marks to make sure you twist them back in correctly but make sure you test the console before re-installing the trim and screwing it in.

The bulb type that you need to replace it with is a #70 Mini Wedge lamp. #2721 lamps are also compatible.



Also as a side note, check to see if there are any parts recalls on your MPV. I've had a problem with my fan running long after I turn the car off and it drains the battery; apparently there's a recall for that. I also have a problem with my cruise control which has also been recalled.

The switch on the very bottom does not allow the 2 light bulbs to light up on the ceiling terminal. The only bulb that will light up is the small baby bulb. However, the top switch lets the heater fan...

Try an experiment.
Move wire from bottom switch to middle switch and see if that isolates problem.

If switch is the problem, then you need a new switch.
If light is the problem, then you need to look for loose wire at that location. Possible a burned out bulb.

Light fixture on ceiling fan goes off and on

Check the bulbs to see if they are secure but...
Probably after years of use the optional light kit plug has become loose from the vibration. To fix this, turn off the electricity to the unit (circuit breaker is best) take of the bulbs and globes and reove the lighting kit from the bottom of the fan and look for a plug/socket combination and check to see it is secure. There will be many wires and if a remote controlled unit it maybe confusing as to which wires are which yet all should be secure. Retighten the lighting kit, replace the globes and bulbs and turn on the breaker and try again. Good Luck!

Can i add more sockets for my fan. it only had one 60w way to dim.

If you mean sockets for more bulbs then yes a different light kit can add more socket. If you mean that you need to be able to add a dimmer as well as a fan speed control, that should also be available in the head where the wires for the light kit hook up. One will be labeled Light, and the other will be labeled Motor. Both will have screw on terminator caps attached at the end.

Light flickers when dimmer switch isn't ''just right''

Compact fluorescent bulbs do not work on dimmers.  You have to use standard incandescent bulbs or not dim the lights.
