Is it possible this is the same problem I'm having with my Hunter fan's lite. The watt governor (to keep the watts below 190 max) seems to have failed. I have tried changing out the bulbs (both in size and cfl) but both still "disco" flash when the light is turned on at the switch. No remote. Internet sites say to wire around the Watt Governor by connecting White to White, and Black to Red.
I have Neutral In (W), Live In (B), Light Out (R), and Common Out (W). Looking for a little more detailed wiring instructions. All the web site info says by-passing the Watt Governor will solve my problem. Just need some help on how to do that. There is another smaller box with a Red and White wire. I don't know what that is. CBB61 300VAC 50/60hz. MAX TEMP +80 c22.2 no. 190 E 163532 08
This problem is happening since the 2008 government reg to have these stepdowns installed on lite kits. If your fan/lite is newer, I'm betting this is your problem too.
* Note: Ran across a link to the federal register. The reg is in 10 CFR Part 430, effective January 11, 2007. It requires ceiling fan light kits manufactured after January 1, 2007 to be designed such that they cannot operate over 190 watts. It applies to all manufacturers. How they achieve the limit is up to them.
It's an energy conservation step, not a safety one. I can't imagine how that made sense to anyone, but it nevertheless is the the rule.
