I have not experienced the trouble you are suggesting. CFL do product radio interference. There may be a connection. To prove it - remove the CFL.

Everyone is interested in reducing electrical use and CFL is a good choice. For this particuylar installation, you may want to go with a more expensive alternative, LED. Search LED on Google, you will get a lot of leads and you son't believe the choices you will have

I hope this helps you. Thanks for posting your question in FixYa.com

Compact Flourescents won't work in ceiling fan


Simply use regular bulbs. It sounds like it is switched electronically probably via a dimmer. If the CFL lamps are not specifically labeled dimmable they won't work. I have seen the LED lights work where the CFL lamps will not. If you want to use CFL then replace the dimmer.

Ceiling fan lights flicker in bedroom with 23watt cfl bulbs


Sounds like an older unit that has either a dimmer or electronic switch. You need to use dimmable CFL lamps.

Just purchased GE 15086 smart timer, can I use this on my lights that have been converted to CFL bulbs?


The 15086 is a straight timer, so it should work with no problems. CFL bulbs only have problems when run off a photocell switch/timer or a dimmer circuit.

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.

Heath Zenith Security Light fixture with motion stopped working.


I am in the middle of a discussion with Heath/Zenith over a closely related and perhaps identical issue. I purchased their 5718 model from Home Depot and based on the fact that their brochure stated that "CFL bulbs are only usable on 270 degree units." I purchased the model 5718 unit (270 degree) and used CFL bulbs. It experienced the same problem others noted.

The technician at Heath/Zenith told me that only DIMMABLE CFL bulbs would work with this unit (even if the DualBrite feature is turned off). Standard CFL bulbs will not work.

Their brochure does not make that clear. Perhaps that is the answer to others' problems.
