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.

Anyone have any suggestions.

    I have the same issue with the same fan... I just installed it a couple of days ago, and last night it started strobing while the light was off. The strobe effect doesn't strobe the light at full power, rather at a minimal brightness every couple of seconds.

    Same fan, similar problem, mine was stuck in reverse on high. Could not get it to turn off or change directions, but the light was working, I could turn the light on or off with the remote. So I replaced the fan controller with one from HD, and not I can turn fan on or off but still only goes in reverse and the light is flickering when off, which it never did before.

    Can not get it to change directions. Any help would be great.

    I have the same problem with a Hampton Bay fan/light with the round fluorescent bulb.  I tried a new remote receiver and a new ballast....neither helped.  I called the Home Depot help line for fixing ceiling fans and they swore the new ballast should have fixed the problem.  To date....no resolution.....I was hoping it would just go away.

    I just hung a Hampton Bay 54" Burgess Voltera - and it is exhibiting the same simptons
    - Fan works (low/med/high/off)
    - Light 'on' works
    - Light 'off' gives brief flickers for fraction of a second every 2-3 seconds.

    I have the exact same problem with a Hampton Bay fan light. It has a circular fluorescent bulb. When the wall switch is on and the light is turned off using the remote control, the light flashes intermittently. Who can sleep with that?!

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.

We have a hampton bay ceiling fan model 54cvt. We cant figure out how to change the light bulb or change the direction of the blades. We dont have a manual for the fan.


This fan is also known as the Hampton Bay Covington 54 Ceiling Fan. You need to turn the globe anti clockwise until it comes out. The full instruction manual can be found here.

Hampton Bay Covington 54" Ceiling Fan Light Does Not Come On


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.
