I have a Hampton Bay ceiling fan that is having light issues. I installed the fan about 8 months ago and everything worked fine for about 6 months. Now, the lights do not work properly. They are CFL lights that have the new knob ends that kind of snap in place.
The fan is controlled by one light switch and the actual fan part works fine. However, when I flip on the wall light switch, the lights only flash on for about half a second and then they turn off again. I can hear an audible "click" when it turns on and then another "click" when it turns off again. Again, the fan blades continue working even when the light turns itself off.
Here's what I've done so far:
-Installed new light bulbs
-Changed wall light switch
-Checked electrical connections in electrical box
-Ordered and changed out light "kit" from the manufacturer
While poking around, I saw that the light kit wires go through a black box (shown with a yellow sticker in the picture below).
This black box was not changed out when I changed the light kit. What is the box, and could it be the problem?
