Question about Air Conditioners
I just hung a new Covington and as far as actually working, everything seems to be ok except when the fan is running and the light is off, the light (a round compact fluorescent bulb) will flash at random intervals. Most times it is a single flash but occasionally it is a short burst (2 or 3) of flashes. If I turn the wall switch off, the flashing stops but, of course, so does the fan.
I have no ham radios or other frequency generating equipment in my home and it happens long after everyone in the neighborhood has gone to bed so I don't think it is a spurious radio wave coming from any of the neighbors.
Anyone have any suggestions.
Solids state fan controls don't work correctly with fluorescent bulbs. If you check the tail end of you remote's instructions it will say something like "Max light watts: 300 (incandescent only). So replace your energy saver bulbs with 60 watt "regular" bulbs to solve your problem.

I had the same problem with a retro fit remote switch for a fan with 4 lights. I replaced one compactfluorescent with an incandescent bulb and the flickering stopped.
