Question about Dryers

1 Answer

Hi, I have Hunter fans throughout the house. This particular one has a light kit.. We thought the light burnt out and replaced the bulb. It still does not work.. There is a very faint flicker in the bulb. We replaced the old with a Brand New one. What are the likely sources of the problem and what is the potential fix? Thank you Dave

The balast that controls the light is most likely out not giving good power supply to the bulb.

Have a Hunter model 28675 ceiling fan with two light fixture. Turned lights on, heard a pop. One of the bulbs blew, turned black. Now the lights will not work with new bulbs.

Is the fan and light kit equipped with a wireless remote control? If so a short in the light fixture sockets will cause a backfeed into the electronic circuit boards of the remote controls receiver and burn it out. If you have a voltage tester or pigtail with a light bulb remove the screws for the light kit and disconnect the two wires from it. Connect your voltmeter or pigtail to the two wires that were connected to the light kit. Have someone turn on switch for light or push light button on remote and see if you are getting power, If you are then problem is in light kit. If no power is present then receiver for remote is burnt out. Depending on the fan receiver can be built into the fan or located inside the top canopy and can be easily replaced. As per the light kit having a watt regulator it is possible that was installed to prevent overheating of the sockets by the manufacturer. That can also have blown out causing no power to get to the bulbs. If you have power at the wires that connect to the light kit then the watt regulator is defective. You can bypass the part but you must insure that you do not install bulbs that are of a higher wattage then what the fixture is rated for. Or you can order a replacement from Hunter. Good luck.

Hunter fan Model 20722 lights flash several times when turned on?

Not the capacitor. If this fan has a remote make sure it's set for incandescent bulb & not CFL bulb. Should be where you install the battery. Also, make sure you're using the correct wattage as it might have a limiter in the fan.

WAIT! Are you SURE the 98480-02 is burnt? This is part of the FAN circuits and NOT your lights?
