Also - we've verified that the bulbs work on other lights in the house.
What does it sound like when you hear the light switch (light switch?) attempt to turn on?The light DOES NOT work using any method. However - when attempting to turn the light on via remote - we can hear the switch clicking inside the light unit. Still - pull-cord method doesn't work.
Since we can actually "hear" the switch when attempting to control from the remote - what can that mean?
Any help would be appreciated.
Maybe - but I think the op has the same kind of setup that I have. I have a wall switch (One which turns the fan on, and another that turns the light kit on). If the op gets back, and states there 2 switches, then the problem would be in the wall switch.That's very unlikely.
The connection in the wall switch isn't the problem because it would also affect the fan operation... and the fan is working with remote and pull chains and wall switch.
And that's why I don't like to have a wall switch, pull cords & a remote running a fan.
I find it's best to remove the switch in the wall, reconnect the common black and put a blank cover on the wall switch opening.
Some people leave the wall switch hooked up in case they loose the remote. But if you lose the remote you can still use the pull chain to run all fan & light variables and turn each on and off separately.
You can't run variable speeds for the fan, or adjust light brightness with a wall switch unless you have two push on dimmer switches. One for fan control and one for light control. It may be possible to find one that will run both fan & light but unless you're investing in a top of the line luxury fan no one would bother looking for one.
If your wall switch is a regular toggle (flip up / push down) or a butterfly switch they only complete the circuit & that's it. No variable control.
And push on / dimmer switches draw more amps and hum and can actually damage the fan motor and fan light over time.
Simply put - the more ways you have to control a fan, the more things you have that could go wrong.
