    it has three bulbs and none of the sockets work. Using CF bulbs.

  • lsohn Mar 22, 2008

    i assume you mean the light bulb and I have tried three different bulbs in all three sockets - no light.

    Or do you mean the socket?

  • lsohn Mar 23, 2008

    I will have to check the terminations as all I have checked is the caps at the connections. The inside of the light housing had quite a few of the capped wires, most wires appeared to be for the fan.
    As for the cf lamps, they are the same I were there when the light worked.

  • lsohn Mar 25, 2008

    Yes, I replaced with the same type of switch - 2 wire in which one wire was capped off. It did not appear to matter which wire I capped - no marking or indication of any difference between the two.

    Anyway, it takes me and my husband (yes I am the mechanical one) as I need him to hold up the fan while I make the connections, so it will probably be the weekend until I can get his help with the connections. I will write back when I have had a chance to check

  • lsohn Mar 25, 2008

    I marked them b4 I disconnected. I would think that is I had connected them incorrectly, it would short out and/or the fan would not run?
    Thanks!

Well with the wire connections having been checked, the only question is whether the light worked before installation or if you tried a different light bulb while trying to get it to work. Possibly somewhere the wire is broken otherwise, good luck and please post whether the light bulb was checked, thank you

    you may have messed up the power (hot) wire with the non-power wire, try switching the wires around but leave the ground in its position, do you have a tester to test for power running through the wires?

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Mar 25, 2008

    maybe the fan, if you just bought it, is defective, I would try getting a different one and trying that one and if that one works then you know for sure it was the fan

  • Benjamin Patri
    Benjamin Patri Mar 25, 2008

    If the fan isn't new as it sounds it may not be, then maybe some internal piece broke, but I would still try a different fan if you could, possibly buy one and return it after testing it which I know isn't right, but it is one thing that you can do

    OK, when checking the wiring, do all your wire terminations have copper under the screwdown terminals. I can be easy to insert the wire, then tighten the screws against insulation. Best bet it to strip enough wire to double back the wire on itself to about 6-7 mm then screw down on that. DONT FORGET TO TURN OFF THE MAINS. before you remove terminations.

    Are they the same lamps as you had before. Some cf lamps do not mate up well to ES sockets.

  • Graeme Ross
    Graeme Ross Mar 22, 2008

    They need a little extra twist at the end to allow for the internal safety feature of the socket to connect power through to the lamp. Hard to do when you are trying not to put too much force in the cf type lamp

  • Graeme Ross
    Graeme Ross Mar 24, 2008

    I have thought I had a faulty one once, replaced it with another, thought "not 2 faulty ones". Turned out to be a sprung type center connection in the Edison Screw type fitting that by sprung lever action disconnects the center contact from the power supply. Mostly to help prevent electrocution when some one is fiddling in the dark, perhaps checking to see if there is a bulb fitted, then.... kabang!! This mechaism takes a little more effort in rotation to overcome. Almost too much effort for a compact flouro lamp!! I mean they warn you all over the box,and I too have broken a few in the past. So check for that!! you have not mentioned that you have, so I am assuming that is still the problem. Let me know if you have tried it, I gotta know now!!

    oh and I have assumed that when you say you replaced the switch, it is exactly the same type as the old on?

I did not make a diagram when replacing the light switch


Red from switch goes to two blacks, blue from switch goes to two blacks and the black wire goes thru top of light and attaches to blue fan light wire. If you want a good fan, look for blade pitch(13 degree or higher)Or CFM's above 5500 on high.

Our Hunter fan has the 4 tulip lights, and 5 blades, brand new. The light switch worked once and now the pull chain doesn't. The fan pull switch works fine.


Sounds like you either have a bad switch, or possibly a wire has came loose on the inside. Any electrician or reasonably handy handyman can fix this.

The ceiling fan do not occilate the light turn on but the other does not work propperly


mcdevito75 here, Both the fan and lights work off the wall switch, for the fan to work there is also a pull chain close to the ceiling on the fan shroud you have to pull that chain to get the fan going and 1--2 more times for various speeds. If by chance the fan is brand new, reove the blades and check for stops in the fan motor, right where the blades hook up, these are in place from the factory and have to be removed for the fan to work, they pull right out.

Hi ,,, replacement switches for ceiling fan lights can be found at most appliance or building supply stores. Try Home Depot, Ace, Lowes. Make sure that you get the correct switch. With a single lamp you only need an on/off switch.

Put ceiling fan up, blades are not on yet.


No. As you were assembling the wire from the fan motor to the house wiring, there should have been two wires labled. One would have been labeled "FAN" and the other "LIGHT". To properly attach the wires, (be sure the power is off) twist the thin labeled black (FAN) and blue (LIGHT) wires together. Now attach those two twisted wires to the black house wiring with one of the supplied wiring cap. Finally attach the thin white wire to the white house wire with supplied wiring cap. Your fan is now ready for operation. If you had performed all these steps when you first assembled the fan, then the thin black wire going to the fan has come loose. Should your ceiling fan still not run after all that, then it's time to return it where you bought it because either the pull chain switch is defective or the manufacturer produced a defective piece of merchandise. If you found any of my suggestions to be helpfull, please rate my solution. Thanks D. Lange

Ceiling fan woobles on high speed


Turn off fan, then check to see that all of the blade mounting screws are tight. (check blade to blade arm and blade arm to fan body screws/mounting mechs.) If none are loose, you can purchase a blade balancing kit from most hardware stores, including Home Depot and Lowes. Let us know if this helps or the cure you come up with.
