ceiling fan

My ceiling fan light doesn't work and light is only controlled from the switch, the one and only pull chain is for the fan only. The blades work fine when I turn on the switch no light. Changed the bulbs but nothing happens.

ceiling fan

Did you install this?
"...light is only controlled from the switch": Is the switch on the fan or on the wall?
"...blades work fine when I turn on the switch no light: Again, same switch as the light or another one and where located (fan or wall)?
Could be loose wire connection for the light assembly at any place where there are connections. First try might be in the fan due to vibration. Make sure circuit breaker/fuse is off before monkeying with the connections.
