What type of light bulb do I need for a minkaAire ceiling fan. It is about 7 years old


It all depends on which light kit was installed on your fan. As you described the fixture as requiring a "light bulb" meaning a singular bulb, Minka Aire usually uses several different types.

The most common is either a 40-watt or 60-watt Candelabra Bulbs.
(The designation "Candelabra" refers to its screw base. You can buy these in clear or frosted, torpedo or globe with a straight tip or curved. Etc.
Here's an example of a torpedo globe:
Sunlite 60 Watt Torpedo Tip Chandelier Candelabra Base Frost 48 Pack
And here's an example of a Candelabra globe:
Sunlite 60 Watt G16 5 Globe Candelabra Base Clear 48 Pack

Some of their fixtures use a 50-watt Mini-Can Xenon Bulb.
Satco S1914 50W MINI CAN FROSTED 120V

And other use a 3w CFL Medium Base Bulb.
3W CFL Deco 2700K Medium Base

When installing a CFL, Halogen or Xenon bulb, I recommend cleaning the glass with an alcohol wipe to remove any oil from fingerprints. Due to the very high temperatures these lamps operate at, the oil from your fingers will cause a hot-spot on the glass and can shorten the life of the bulb dramatically.

If none of the references I offered match the bulb in your actual fixture, you might be able to more closely match the fixture from one on the following page. The recommended bulb for each fixture is listed in the description of the fixture.
https://www.ceilingfan.com/Minka-Aire-Fan-Lights-s/2082.htm

And as always, NEVER over-lamp a fixture with a bulb rated at a higher wattage than what's shown on the base of the fixture. That is, never use a 60-watt bulb in a fixture rated at 40-watts. The additional heat of the bulb may harden the insulation of the wiring in the fixture creating, causing the insulation to fail and create a fire hazard. Also for fixtures located tight to the ceiling, higher temperatures can dry out the gypsum ceiling material, causing it to crack and deteriorate.

How much electricity does a home led light bulb use, compared to a cfl lightbulb?


About half of the CFL consumption. The other way they win is that they don't have to be replaced as frequently.

CFL light bulb dangerous?


Yes they are. Look up the HAS MAT procedures you should follow when you break one. I use LED lamps, they are much safer and greener as well. They also come on full brightness after years of use.

Lights flicker on ceiling fan: We have 4 cfl bulbs in a ceiling fan light fixture that have recently started to flicker. They've been there for a while without the problem, so it's not a matter of a new...


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.

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off


You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

CFL bulbs won't work in ceiling fan?


they should all work. The only problem might be if they are connected via dimmer. Dimmers and CFL does not work together.

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.

CFL bulbs for fan fixture


I had a simple question and you wanted me to pay you to answer it.

I am still hoping to get a CFL lightbulb with socket size E17 to provide more light for my kitchen, but you won't help.

Screw you all.
