I replaced recessed can light w/ceiling fan, works great, if I want a recessed light on while ceiling fan is on. I do not. I need at least one working bulb in a socket it appears to complete circuit. Is there an easy way to complete circuit w/out having to use a bulb? there are 6 recessed lights on the circuit, I replaced one w/ceiling fan. All work off of one switch, w/a dimmer.
If the recessed light you replaced turned on/off with the switch, then the ceiling fan is also going to turn on/off with the switch. If removing a bulb from the socket causes the fan to turn off, you've done something seriously wrong.
You should contact an Electrician to install the fan properly.
