The previous thread is completely missing.
My ceiling fan goes through about a bulb a week on average. It also flickers when first turned on for about 15 to 20 seconds. There are no apparent fan problems whatsoever. I tripped the circuit breaker and did a minor/preliminary disassembly of the shroud, and did not see anything loose or burnt around the exposed light fixture.
On a side note, the light bulbs shine bright and steady after the first 20 seconds of flickering, and ALWAYS blow upon initially being turned on.
