Check all the connections both in the fan and switch. Also the bulb. Replace bulb.

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.

SOURCE: wiring ceiling fans to wall switch

Hi Bigelow,

You need two switches.  It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans).  i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

SOURCE: ceiling fan light the light keeps flickering then

this is due to vibration and the contacts get disconnected now and then from the surface.
i feel that you can sort out this problem by tightening the loosened connections of light.

SOURCE: Lights flicker on ceiling fan

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.

Is the difference that the new one is dimmable or you have installed a dimmer switch as well? If so thats the problem. CFL can't be dimmed and act weird on a transformer. Only option would be to open it and remove the dimmer pack inside the fan or swap to a normal wall switch.

Ceiling fans have tiny "brains" that get fuddled when one tries to combine remote control and wall switches/pull chains. If you want to be able to use remote control, redo the installation omitting the other switches.

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.

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.
