Question about Hampton Bay 73554 Antigua Ceiling Fan
I have now replaced 4 Antigua fans due to the black transformer burning up. Some of the fans have worked for months and other 1 day.
My fan has a light kit and is controled by two regular switches on the wall (not a dimer). In the housing I attach the fan to the light fixture is where the black transformer box is located that keeps burning up. It melts wires into the box or buldges out to the side.
I have had other types of fans in the same location in previous years but never had this problem. Any idea why.
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.

check the kit at home depot, get name and phone number of manufacturer and call them to see if they can supply the glass that you want.

If you don't want the to use the remote you don't have to, but you don't have enough wires to switch the upper light, the lower light, and the fan. You can, however, switch the upper and lower lights together if that's okay. In order to do that you'd connect the white from the ceiling box to the white (neutral) on the fan, then the green from the ceiling box to any green(ground) wires on the fan, then the black from the ceiling box to the black(motor) from the fan, then the red from the ceiling box to the blue and orange (lights) from the fan. I'm assuming that the black and red in the ceiling box are also in the switch box where the fan/light control switch is going. Those are the ones you'll connect to the controller.

I think you have already figured out what the problem most likely is; 60 watt bulbs. Down-size the wattage or install 'energy saver' bulbs if they will fit the application. Instead of counting on these units for extra lighting, perhaps think about Track lighting to fill in those ares that need more but subtle light.
Good luck. :)
