The lights on my living room ceiling fan do not come on when switched on. They flash on then off. But if you leave the switch on and come back a few mins later the light will turn right on. It’s been going on for a long time. The fan works just fine every time. House was a new build 2014. Not sure of brand the fan is.

    What wattage and type of bulbs are in the fan? Some "energy efficient" fans limit current to the light kit. – JPhi1618 Mar 26 '19 at 19:15
  • Yes, what bulbs are in there? – ThreePhaseEel Mar 26 '19 at 23:45
  • I’m not 100% sure. I know we have the same bulbs in the same ceiling fans in other rooms in the house with no issues. – richard clark Mar 27 '19 at 12:35
  • We're more interested in if they are old style incandescents or LED. – Harper - Reinstate Monica Mar 27 '19 at 21:55
  • They are long life incandescents but again they work in all other fan fixtures – richard clark Mar 28 '19 at 22:24
