Question about Hampton Bay 24002 Ceiling Fan
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.

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.

No . have this checked by a licensed professional it is more than likely bad switchs in the fixture but you can never be to careful with electricity

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!
