My ceiling fan will work, the small overhead bulbs come on, the regular bulbs will not light. However if I move the shaft the bulbs sometimes come on, also noticed a black smudge on the ceiling plate like it may have got hot. Any suggestions? The chain that turn the lights on will not turn them on. Any help appreciated.
Right. The "light kit" is usually connected with a single conductor that runs down through the hollow shaft from the box to the light. It's a piece of 16awg wire, about a foot max. Replace the fan? How about replace the wire.
