Electrical Question from Chris about Ceiling Fan Wiring
Background: Chris, a Handywoman from Tallahassee, FL
[ad#block]Question: I replaced a light fixture with a ceiling fan and light kit. The ceiling fan works fine, but the light kit only worked for an hour then switched off. I used the bulbs included in the kit so the wattage of 190 watts wasn’t exceeded. I disconnected and then reconnected the light kit and it turned on again but am afraid this will happen again. Any ideas about what to do?
