What sort of bulb are you using? If the bulb is a flourescent bulb, there will invariably be a delay before they come on, as the bulb begins to age. 

"10 year" bulbs don't mean that they'll provide good light for that entire period of time, sadly, and they will begin to slow down on lighting as time goes on, some worse than others. Try switching the bulb for a standard incandescent bulb, and see if the error continues.

SOURCE: Wall switch

I had this same problem (sort of) - my daughter lost the remote to our fan and it would not work from the wall switch. What you have to do is go up to where your fan is connected to the ceiling, slide the canopy down, and remove the remote transmitter. Then just rewire the fan normally - white to white, black and blue to black, and the ground wires together. Turn on the power and your fan light should work with the wall switch. You will have to pull the cord for the fan to work.

SOURCE: Hunter Fan # 20723 The Westminster - lights delayed when turn on

Here is the answer I received from Hunter Technical Support.

"The light fixtures are manufactured with a limiter that prevents a higher than recommended wattage bulb from working. The limiter causes the slight delay even when the correct bulbs are is in use."

Pretty annoying if you ask me.

SOURCE: Short delay in ceiling fan light turning on

I also ran into this "problem". Installed five of the same fan last week and four of them have the light switched, one of them is on a 3-way switch. All the switched lights delay when turning them on while the "always on" light operated by pull string is just fine.
Could find no explanation in the user manual other than, as previous post mentions, new federal regulations that limit the wattage. One can assume that there is some sort of regulator inside the light fixture that needs to power up and/or run some sort of check to see how much power is being pulled by the lights.
The delay is super annoying, but I suppose all light kits are going to have this now. Thank you FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

Can't have fan on and lights off.


What kind of wall switch do you have?? Unless it's a wall remote,you shouldn't be using it. The wall switch should be on for the remote to work correctly.

Just installed a heller ceiling fan with remote, it works fine from the remote but the light nolonger works from the light switch


All the switch on the wall does is turn the power on/off. You have to do everything from the remote with the wall switch on.

Fan will not work unless wall switch is on


A ceiling fan can be wired in different ways.I prefer to connect only the lights to the wall switch,and the fan to the hot,so the fan can be used when the lights are turned off.You will need to locate the circuit to the fan and turn off the breaker.Remove the cover at the ceiling to access the wiring.The fan wiring is usually labeled,but I believe the light wire is blue,the fan wire is black,and the neutral is white.The light wire and fan wire are probably both connected to the same feed.You will need to rewire the fan to the hot(black) house wire.The light wire is fed from the wire after the wall switch-leave this as is if the lights turned on/off with the wall switch.After the rewire,turn the breaker on before replacing the cover,and verify everything is how you want it before replacing the cover.I usually remove the light chain to keep people from using the chain instead of the wall switch.

Light switch will not turn on fan light, however I can turn light on manually, note I HAVE REPLACED THE LIGHT SWITCH AND THE RESULTS ARE THE SAME.


I'm assuming you can turn on light AT the fan but not at wall switch, And you have replaced WALL switch correct? If that's correct, then wiring above fan has come loose and is no longer attached to wire that connects to wall switch. (They come loose from fan vibration - had same problem)

The remote controls the fan speed but wont dim or control the light. the unit wont work if the light switch is off so I cant use the fan at all unless the light is turned on


mcdevito75 here, Generally the Ceiling fan motor is hooked up by-passing the wall switch but still to the hot laed going to the wall switch whlie the lights are hooked up to the hot lead after the wall switch, So without the remote, Manually operate your fan and lights. First with the wall switch off the fan should work and the lights no work. Now turn the fan off with the pull chain on the fan shroud close to the ceiling. Now turn wall switch on and lights should work with wall switch and the fan should also work. if so, re-program the remote or change the batteries or even re--place the remote.
