The fan works but the lights don’t. Tested it with working bulbs. How do I get the lights working again?

Are the breakers on?

>> No.1481602

Oh sorry, obviously they are if the fan works... Could you check if light bulb sockets are live?

I don’t have a tool for testing them. Anyway I can test them with stuff I have lying around the house?

Put your finger in there. Or maybe just peek under the canopy to make sure the wires are still connected.

Lights are probably not hooked up. Fans come with 2 hots.

I’ll probably do the latter.

It's likely either that or a bad pull switch. They're cheap and easy to replace.

Take your light kit apart and look for a little tube or box on the wires that go to your lights. It is a limiter. They tend to go out on Hunter fans. It could also be a loose wire in your light kit. Look on Google like most diy cucks.

How much are they paying you to shill for them? Is that why its ever so important that you post a with a trip, so they know how many cents per week to pay you?

This. The chain/pull switch can go out easily. Mostly do to retards pulling hard on the chain.
