Hi all.

I inherited a ceiling fan in 4 of the 5 rooms of my home when I bought it. I love them.

However, when turning the light on one day in my bedroom, I saw that a lightbulb had blown (there three lights on the ceiling fan). After I changed the bulb, it lit for a moment, then a small spark happened then nothing. The fan itself still works.

All three lights stopped working.

I don't want to have to replace the whole ceiling fan. Is there a way to fix this? Maybe replace the socket(s)? If so, how? Help!

Did you ever receive any assistance on this? Or were you able to get it working? The identical thing happened to my fan. The fan works great; none of the lights work.

on most fan lights, the wiring is done with wirenuts. These have a spring inside that could fail in not installed properly.

Replacement light fixtures aren't expensive or difficult to install.

I would turn off the breaker to the light/fan and test it for power before removing the light assembly for inspection. You probably have a bad switch on the light assembly for loose wiring. Bob villa should have some instructions for ceiling fans on his website.

Two out of four lights on my ceiling fan stopped working. Any ideas?
