Ceiling Fan Answer (I think)

Have you checked to see if the light switch is on a dimmer. Ceiling fans cannot work on a "normal" light dimmer switch.
There are special switches, around $20-30 per switch, for a ceiling fan/ light fixture. But try this approach first:
If you are using a dimmer, just replace it with a normal 50cent one-way light switch.
If that is not the answer, then Henry in MI is right.
Hope that helped.
