I just purchased a new ceiling fan (Savoy House 52-831-5RV-SN). The light kit socket has a sticker that says "MAX 9w LED." There's no mention of the incandescent max. I'd like to use an 11w LED in the kit, because the 9w isn't providing enough lumens to light the room. I'm willing to accept somewhat worse LED life, so long as there's no serious danger from the increased wattage (if, as I think is likely, the true wattage limit is 60w).
My assumption is the incandescent max is 60w and the sticker is just being written in LED terms---it would be weird for a lamp to have an actual 9w max, and seems like that would be really dangerous (if someone, for is to be put a 40w incandescent in it). But I'm not sure.
The light kit is covered underneath but not enclosed by a glass dome.
Can I assume the socket/fixture/wiring is 60w incandescent rated, such that an 11w LED or 20w halogen would be safe to use from a fire perspective?
How much loss of life would I expect from an 11w LED in such a situation.
I have heard that some jurisdictions are taking standard 60w fixtures and now writing the max in LED terms, but I didn't know if things are backward compatible. Will 40w incandescent bulbs always be safe in standard sockets that say 9w LED max?
UPDATE: The old manual people are finding online called for three 60w, the new manual reflects the updated light kit and only calls for 2 9w.
