Ceiling fan


I have a fan the lights dont work.There is voltage going to the lights.There were some flouresant lamps in and some of them had a very small touch of light and a pulse....they were going on and off.I changed them out to incandesant lamps and they don t work at all.

I dont know what else I can tell you.There is 120v going to all 4 lights on the fan.As I said with the flouresant lamps you can see a little light pulse
and nothing with the incandesant lamps.

Where exactly are you measuring the light voltage? Maybe there is a failure downstream from where you are measuring. Maybe the contact at the bottom of the socket needs to be gently pryed up...with power off of course. Maybe the wiring is bad in the sockets. Just brainstorming.
