I installed a ceiling fan for my old neighbor a couple months ago. It worked fine up until two days ago. He said he hit the switch and the lights came on, then all three blew with a pop. He replaced the bulbs but they never came back on. The fan was still working, and it's one a single power source, so I new the power to the fan was good, so it must have burnt up some wiring after the fan and before the lights.
Tonight I went to investigate.
I took the light fixture down and everything was solid, no signs of arc, no burned up wiring...nothing. We're talking about a simple light bulb fixture here, it's about as simple as it gets. After looking at the guts of the light fixture for a bit, I noticed a peculiar little device. I googled the first few characters of the part number and it came up instantly:
There is a small component inside the light kit that has stopped working.
A small electrical component (Y59 R 130C B03 26520) has stopped the candleabra lights from working. Is is posible to obtain a replacement part? Or is it best to replace the light kit?
We had the same problem with our fan. We bought it in July and the lights quit working. We called Hunter and they are sending a replacement light fixture. The part that burned out is a government mandated part that they have since changed the way it is on there. They knew exactly what we were talking about when we called and didn't give us any trouble and they are sending out the replacement part in the next week or so.
A government mandated voltage regulator! ON A LIGHT BULB!
