    I have the same exact issue with mine. I just this moment finished dismounting and reinstalling. All of my electrical was and is correct. I also reset my remote and control box to an alternate code just to be safe. I will keep you posted if this worked. Regards

    I have a Hunter ceiling fan. The owners guide says Type 2 models, I don't know the exact model. The owner's guide also says the might kit is limited to 190 watts. The lights have worked with no problem with four 40 watt bulbs since we installed the fan 4 or 5 years ago. Recently the lights began to flash approximately 1 to 2 seconds to cycle on and off. They flashed continuously whenever they were turned on. I removed a component labeled model: 98480X part: 98480-02 and desired to bypass the removed component and the lights work perfectly, no flashing.

    Quite often flashing lights are the result of damaged sockets that the bulbs screw into. this can result from the bulbs no being ******* in tightly in, or from using too high of a wattage bulb in the sockets, the light kit is rated for a total wattage, not individual bulbs at that wattage

There is a small part in the light kit of the fan connected to the lighting circuit. The part is relatively common to these fans and is most likely in yours as well. The sticker on the side of it shows model 98480X part number 98480-02. Clip the leads to remove this part and wire-nut the wires back together bypassing it (black/red to black and white to white). This will get your unit back to normal and the switches will still work. I spoke with Hunter and this part has nothing to do with the remote control features of the fan. It is a wattage limiter. If you attempt to put bulbs into the fan that are higher than the recommended wattage this unit steps the voltage down to prevent overheating and possible electrical issues. Removing it will not prevent the fan from functioning but you should be aware that it is in there by federal regulation requirement and without it you could risk electrical failure or fire if you put bulbs in that are too high a wattage. If you call the manufacturer to report the issue they will send you a new lighting housing for your unit which will have a new limiter in it and solve your issue as well. In my case I needed the light working so I bypassed it then requested the part. In the meantime I just made sure that the bulbs I was using were well within spec. In my case the limiter was just on the light, but depending on the model or how the wires were nutted together by your electrician if the fan was also nutted on after this device it would certainly have issues as your bulbs would now be limited to the total wattage of the bulbs and fan combined. Hope this helps all!

    There is a work-around trick that keeps the lights from flashing. If you are using CFL's it causes the flashing. If one CFL is replaced with an incandescent light, the flashing stops.

    Thanks a million...I procrastinated for months, but fixed it in 15 minutes with this advice!

  • jumon Jul 03, 2014

    Clipped the leads and then used the wire nuts inside the unit to bypass the POS wattage limiter. I never plan to use bulbs other than CFL or LED, so never going to be a wattage issue.

Regarding Hunter Light pulsing, the part 98480-02 on mine has multiple wires coming out of it. So it is for the fan and the light. The solution was simple. I took the red wire labeled (Light In) that is coupled to a black wire then connected to another black wire with a wire nut. I removed this wire nut, then put a small piece of electrical tape and the wire nut and capped it off. "A" & "B" were connected with the blue wire nut. Took it apart and capped "A" and connected "B" with "C" using a larger wire nut. Very Easy! with tCeiling fan light flashes - 3_2_2012_4_14_49_am.jpg

SOURCE: Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Windward II

There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

SOURCE: lost screws to attach fan blades on ceiling fan

This is not a 'promo' for Home Depot but you will find the screws there that you need.
You will need 15 screws, with an 'unfinished' appearance, for the attachment of the five blades to the arms, and 10 screws that have a smooth rounded finish to attach the arms to the motor housing. If they do not have it in stock they can order ot for you.
If you have an electrical fan store in your area you should be able to find the items there as well.
If you have an old discarded ceiling fan, take the screws out of it and try them on your current fan, they should work.
Good luck. :)

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 Windward II dip switches


The CODE SWITCH RECEIVER should be located in the CANOPY (the bracket hanger). !!WARNING!! YOU ARE ENTERING A HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL ZONE!!
It will be tucked in among the electrical wiring and inside the hanger bracket.

Simply pull it out and you will see the CODE SWITCHES. There are 16 CODE combinations that can be used. Both the REMOTE and the RECEIVER MUST be set with the SAME CODE.
Good luck. :)
