Questions about Wiring a Ceiling Fan to the Electrical Box
Why Do Ceiling Fan Lights Flash On and Off?
John, from rolling meadows, Illinois asks: I have 1-2 year old hunter ceiling fan with 4 lights, fan works fine with all speeds and direction, however my lights flash on and off. I have tried turning circuit breaker on and off, which did not help. The bulbs all seem tight enough. I also checked the wall switch seems ok. Trouble seems to be in the ceiling fan itself. Any suggestions? Thank you.
Answer: John, does this happen when the fan motor is working? If so I would check all the connections with the light kit including the Blue Wire. There may be a loose wirenut or connection. Also, make sure the light bulbs are the right size, because some ceiling fans have a built in sensor that can cause lamps to go ON and OFF if the total amount of watts is too high.
