I'd like to use the brighter better energy LED bulbs but when I put them in - they blinked continuously. I think this MAY be because the fan is on a remote control.This blinking seemed dangerous so I removed the bulbs. I desperately want MORE light from that fixture. The limit is 40W. Suggestions?

  • Have you tried leaving one bulb incandescent? That may do it. – Harper - Reinstate Monica Jan 3 at 22:50
  • Does the fan remote also dim the lights? Are you OK with getting a different fan remote? – ThreePhaseEel Jan 4 at 1:05

Double check that the bulbs are dimmable.

I have a Harbor Breeze remote control fan with Phillips dimmable LED bulbs and it works well.
