Question about Hampton Bay 04078 Avanti Ceiling Fan

Open Question

Fan works but light just flickers and does not work...

Fan works fine with remote but when I try to turn on the fan light it just flickers a couple times and never turns on. I tried to switch around the TCP#12536Q part from my other ceiling fan which is the same Hampton fan (white with the bowl like light cover that twist off) and the result was the same. What do you think is the problem???? Thank You.

Try swapping out the bulbs and see what happens. There are bulbs made specifically for ceiling fans that have heavier duty filaments in the bulbs, or you could use compact fluorescents. The warning about using a solid state control was referring to using a solid state dimmer at the wall switch.

You are probably missing a part. There should be a mounting plate...usually round...that attaches to the ceiling or electrical box. The mounting plate would have small tabs or a lip around the edge with threaded holes for attaching the cover.

SOURCE: Fan not blowing air.

theres a small toggle switch on the fan

that switch is to change direction on the way the fan is blowing

one direction for downward blowing

the other direction is for upward blowing

depends on the area you have to determine which is the best, but i doubt area restriction will hamper force air blowing, air will flow regardless, the area might be big so you dont feel it.

as being living in the attic, HOT AIR rises, so you might want to invest in some installation for the ceiling, because whent he sun hit the roof, it will create an oven effect, in your living area. the hot air is always present, you should have a ventilation fan blowing the hot air out, like thru a small window, the more hot air you blow out, the better.

not sure if this make sense. not sure how big the room is, as FANs are NOISY by nature.

SOURCE: light bulb burned out in ceiling fan

THE FAN IS ACTUALLY A WINWARD II BY HAMPTON BAY. ACCORDING TO INSTRUCTION MANUAL YOU TURN THE GLASS BOWL COVERING THE LIGHT ASSEMBLY UNTIL IT MAKES CONTACT WITH A COUPLE OF GROOVES IN THE RIM AND THE GLASS ASSEMBLY SHOULD RELEASE. I DID NOT RECEIVE ANY HELP FROM "FIXYA" BUT MAYBE THIS INFO WILL HELP SOMEONE ELSE WITH THE SAME PROBLEM. THE MODEL # OF THE HAMPTON BAY FAN WAS 523 342. (I FOUND MY INSTRUCTION MANUAL AND THIS IS WHERE I GOT MY INFO)

The light on the remote is a battery light. First mistake was buying a store brand fan which are mostly low-end parts. Try adding a different remote w/receiver.

Lights flicker on and off. Fan works fine


mcdevito75 here, If the wireing in your home / apartment is old and especially if you have an A/C unit or refrigerator on the same circuit as the celing fan lights may flicker with these other appliances going on. --------------- You can also check the wall switch that turns the fan lights on.

It is not a ceiling fan or wiring problem. It is your bulbs. Normal CFL bulbs do not work in dimmers or with remotes. Remotes work on RF signals and cause interference with the bulbs. You may also notice a buzzing sound and the lights may not go out when you turn off the switch. It is a fire hazard, can invalidate your warranty on the bulbs and will shorten their life. Try changing the bulbs to the new dimmable CFL's and see if it helps. It should eliminate your problem altogether.

Fan lights just started blinking, we changed bulbs which were bad but still blinking with new bulbs


This problem was posted on several sites, but this was the only one where I found both the cause of the problem and the solution. Mine is a Hunter 5 Minute Fan which came with no remote. And after about a month the two lights would blink together whenever I'd turn them on at the wall. So in case it helps for that type of fan or the same type of wiring arrangment here is what I did: POSITIVE SIDE: P1) Remove the light shade. P2) Remove the 3 screws that hold the cowel and lower the cowel. P3) Disconnect (pull apart) the black and red wire coupling. P4) Cut the coupling off of the black wire that comes up from the lights. P5) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that black wire. P6) Remove the wire nut that connects the black wire coming from the governor with the other black wire. P7) Re-use the wire nut to connect the black wire from step P5 with the other black wire from step P6. NEGATIVE SIDE: N1) Disconnect (pull apart) the white to white wire coupling. N2) Cut the coupling off of the white wire that comes up from the lights. N3) Strip off a quarter inch of jacket from that white wire. N4) Remove the wire nut that connects the white wire coming from the governor with three other white wires. N5) Set the governor aside (or just throw it away). N6) Re-use the wire nut to connect the white wire from step N3 with the other white wires from step N4. That's all, you're pretty much done! Turn on the power and test the light. If all is good, re-install the cowel and the light shade.

Flickering lights


make sure you have the remotes/receivers set to different jumpers. I installed 2 fans and had the same problem, just had to change the jumpers on one of the fans and the corresponding remote

Hampton bay CFL lights flicker when they are turned off


I believe the flickering comes from the way the CFLs extinguish themselves after the remote turns them off. As the other poster said, turning them off with the wall switch as well after turning them off with the remote stops the flickering.

It is because the remotes are a dual mesh type of signal, which uses the RF as well as the electrical power to activate and turn them off.

Actually, this type bulb is not designed to work as well in dimmers or remote switches as is incandescent. You will find if you replace them with regular incandescent they will not flicker.
