Hampton Bay 54" Covington Ceiling Fan light problem
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.

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.

Try taking the lighting kit completely off it make sure the blue wire and white wire are both firmly connected.
Does the remote work on the fan part ok? Do you have the black, white, and green wire on the house side connected to the side of the receiver with the same wires?
You know the black and blue are hot for the fan and lights (blue for lights). If the wiring connections are ok it had to be either in the remote or receiver. Are the dip switches set for the same on each?
I have this fan with the remote. The top right-hand switch on the remote says fwd/rev and that does, in fact, reverse the direction of the blades. The manual says to make sure the fan is still moving when you press this switch or it won't reverse direction.
