Are they actually flickering on and off?- or just sort of Twirling patterns of lighter and darker shade of light? -- That is normal when the bulbs are new-- That should become steady in a few days.

If not-- tell us more what is happening-- in detail.

The light on a fan is flickering. It doesn't appear to be the light bulbs. This fan has a remote control and it controls the fan OK and turns the light on and off but it flickers. What could be...


Try changing or testing the batteries in the remote or take the remote out of the fans range. See if this stops the flickering. It can also be the individual bulb. Sometimes the monofillament wires become loosened. It won't hurt the fan to use a broken bulb but it will shorten the life of the bulb. They do get the daylights shook out of them! If all the bulbs flicker it can be the twist connects. These are located under the ceiling plate cover. To check, shut off the fan or turn off the braker switch to make sure you don't get a shock (but I really doubt it). Remove the face plate ceiling screws to expose the wiring. There should be a black and a red cap that holds wires together. Black is ground red is power. One at a time hold the wires of the black cap with one hand and give the cap a gentle clockwise twist with your other hand to see if they need tightening. Repeat with the other colored cap. Push the wires back up inside the housing if needed and replace the cover.
These are the simpelist things to try before calling an expert. I hope this helps?

Hello I have a hapton bay flush mount ceiling light fixture. The bulbs broke and I would like to replace them, however I seem to can open the fixture. It does not have a screw. Please help me. Ingrid


Hello, W/D here.
Try pulling (firmly, but not too hard) straight down. Most fixtures without screws holding them on will have a spring clip inside the globe to hold it to the fixture.
Best regards, --W/D--

You have to use the same diagnostic procedures that you already have to isolate which area of the cord is broken. Carefully test, by wiggling, etc. the end of the cord that plugs into the wall. If this end is faulty, you can purchase a plug end at a hardware store and replace it.
If the cord is broken at the sweeper end, unless you can open and repair the break, you will probably need a new charger.

in many of these remote controlled lamps you cant use the new spiral light bulbs .. you can only use standard incandescent lights .. if thats not the trouble then you may indeed have a bad controller (in the fan) .. there is probably at least a 90 day warranty maybe as much as 3 years .. make sure the wire nut power connections are secure inside the fan.. if one of the the wires in the fan are not making contact then you will see a similar problem .. once in a while i have seen strong external RF signals interfere with the controller but thats rare and usually doesnt last long ..

i would : 1. check all the connections .. 2. replace the light bulb to make sure its not flakey or the wrong type .. 3. try to get the fan replaced in warranty ..

If this is a new product and it is defective, take it back to Lowe's and insist on a replacement, talk to the manager if you have to. This site will only advise you on how to fix it.
