Question

Ceiling fan ans light works erratic


My ceiling fan and light work fine in the evening but does not work in the morning. The trouble started 15 days ago. I checked all connections and found them to be ok. Please help me. Thanks.

Are you having any other problems anywhere else in the house?

Has anyone added a timer in the circuit somewhere?
Was any work done 15 days ago?

Thanks for the response.
No other problem any where in the house.
no timer has been added in the circuit either.
No work has been done for over a year and not any electrical work for over many years.

I suspect you still have a loose connection that you have not found. It could be anywhere in the circuit.

Are they on a wall switch or ceiling pulls? Could there be a switch somewhere that covers this hot line? Maybe a 3way thats lost a traveler?

The fan and the light. Evening and morning. Are they on separate switches? I would start with the connections inside the fan box. Take the wire nuts off and put them back on.
