Ceiling Fan Remote Question

Posted by Mark Summers on July 13th, 2000 09:32 AM

I have a remote controlled ceiling fan installed which
has been working fine for the past two years. Last night
my wife turned on the light with the remote and one
of the lights burned out - with a pop, later on I tried to turn off
the light with the remote -- It wouldn't go out. I
see the infra-red light flashing but nothing. The fan
still works with the remote without a problem -- all speeds.
Attempts to 'reset' it by killing the breaker. Also
by pulling the chain and trying the remote with it off
and on, etc. The light works with the chain fine.

My question is -- which seems unlikely since it works for
the fan -- is it the remote. Or do I have to check the
transmitter (or whatever it is called) inside the housing
of the fan. Could the burnout of the light have sent a
'spike' to it and damaged it ?

Thanks in advance
Mark Summers
