Minka aire ceiling fan

I had a minka aire ceiling fan installed about two years ago. Tonight the 50 watt halogen recessed light bulb burned out. We went to replace it, but as soon as we put it in, and then turned it on - it blew the bulb out?

This may not apply. There could be an electrical problem. But if you installed the bulb with your hand, the oil on your skin can cause the buld to heat excessively and fail. I suggest you use the packaging or part of it when installing it, taking great care not to touch it.

My Minka Aire remote is not working. When I use the remote nothing happens. When I turn on the switch using light switch nothing happens. I had it installed two years ago. Battery never replaced.

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.

Newly installed Minka aire concept II ceiling fan is poorly lit. Installed in my son's bedroom and it's useless, dim.


probably not the reason for the dim light. It probably has more to do with the installation where you have wired the light before or after the fan so that power so the bulb is reduced by the resistance in the fan.
lights and fans are wired in parallel so that one doesn't affect the other
Might pay to talk with an electrician on the issue
There is a limit on the size of the bulb that can be used and a 100 watt halogen bulb will probably melt the surrounds and set fire to the fitting
get a desk lamp for his homework

This is the concept f518-bn or 519-bn with recessed light.
According to the manual you twist the clear plastic cover counter clockwise. This is on the opaque white lens cover itself.
