Our hunter Douglas ceiling fan/ light was installed fall of 2012. A light bulb burned out. Now the light doesn't work at all but the fan does. No remote, just a wall switch. Any suggestions?

New fans come equipped with limiters built into the control cup. This is to prevent overloading of the sockets. Most light kits come with 40 watt bulbs these days so if you have replaced even one burned out bulb with anything higher than a 40 watt bulb the limiter will kick in and shut off your light. Also try switching to a 130 volt 40 watt candleabra bulb as opposed to the 120 volt, sometimes this helps.

Make sure your contact in the socket is touching the bulb.

    make sure the bulb you are replacing it with is a good bulb,just because it might be new doesn't mean it is a good one

Light blew on ceiling fan, now the entire fan won't turn on, nor will the new light bulb turn on

Many of the newer light bulbs won't screw all the way down so you have to stick your finger in the sockets and bend the bottom tab up so that the bulb will touch it. Most ceiling fan installs i find that people don't put the marrettes on correctly and the wires fall out after the fan is up.

Try changing the frequencies in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work, you probably need a new receiver.

I have Hunter ceiling fan / light. I installed it. It worked fine for a little while, than one bulb blew out, then a second bulb blew out, now none work. Yes I repaced all the bulbs, still don't w

I would check with a voltmeter if you can safely to verify power at the light socket using an adapter to a plug in it. If you can not do that, with power off you may want to make sure that the socket contacts are good and clean. Sometimes they can become tarnished badly.

Sounds like the remote receiver units (located where the mains connect to the fans) took a surge and have failed.
