If it has a remote, press down on the light button and keep it pressed down until your light gets to full brightness.

Must I replace its 100 watt Sylvania incandescent bulb with another incandescent? What about an equivalent CFL or LED bulb?


Both will work fine as long as the light isn't on a dimmer. You can't dim CFL bulbs.

If you do have a dimmer, you can dim LED bulbs as long is you buy dimmable LED bulbs.

Has anyone found a solution for this problem? I have tried a bulb in each light socket and attempted to use the pull/dimmer switch that is on the fan itself. The lights no longer dim nor turn off. I have unscrewed all of the bulbs and tried each bulb in each socket one at a time and still nothing. I have also taken the pull switch out of a different hunter fan to put into this one, hoping that atleast the lights would turn on and off. Still the lights won't turn off using the pull switch. I am out of ideas.

If the legrand dimmer 400w - pro21 can function with led dimmable light "philips master led spot "


The answer is NO. You need a Trailing Edge dimmer to control LEDs.

The Phillips master LED spot manual says
:
Lighting controls: bulbs are dimmable 20-100% with ""select"" Trailing Edge RC devices
http://www.prismaecat.lighting.philips.com/FredhopperPDFWebServiceInter/docts/1d8ea75f-e889-424d-92dc-450fbeb85f6a/Smart_LED_Spot_da.pdf

The Legrand pro21 manual does not say anything about being a Trailing edge dimmer.
http://www.legrand.com.gr/gr/gr/liblocal/internet_greece/PDFS/NOTICES/IOBL/ROOSTATES/775637EN.pdf

Legrand diagrams show what appears to be incandescent bulbs, and say nothing about LEDs

LEDs cannot be dimmed as ordinary incandescent (tungsten) bulb.

Usually you have to press the light switch 3 times and hold to get dim effect adjustments, it is often radio transmitted in some newer models, if the pull switch is bad replace it anyways it could be dangerous if let alone!

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.

Humming inside the switch


Is it connected to a fan motor also? - most dimmers are for lights only - if there is a ceiling fan connected you may experience a humming sound from the dimmer

Not sure if this is the exact ceiling fan/ light kit we have... but looks similar.


Turned out that it was the dimmer switch that had shorted out.

My hubby figured it out, and replaced it.
