    I have a Harbor Breeze ceiling fan with an item number 0289422 on the wiring housing. When I turn on the light, it will come on briefly (perhaps 1 or 2 seconds) then goes off and stays off. Solution, please?

    Does the fan have no problems with other operations, e.g when you run the fan, it will stay on no problem? Is it just a problem with the light?

    Also, are you turning on the light with a remote or a wall switch?
    If it’s a wall switch – check the switch or have an electrician do it
    It kind of sounds like there is an internal problem where the light is wired, e.g where the light wiring connects to either the wiring inside of your fan or the wiring in the home.
    Check that wiring guide, should help, otherwise if you don’t feel comfortable, call an electrician
    If you want a free option, call the fan manufacturer and ask.

    I have the same issue as the OP. Previously a halogen bulb worked fine, but with an LED the light cuts out a few seconds after I turn it on, every time. Same with the other LED bulb in the pack. I’d be interested if the OP was also using an LED.

    We tried researching the part number provided 0289422 but not finding much with that. If either of you are able to provide the model of the fan, we can try looking up the manual for it and look into the part number that way to try and figure out why it’s not working.
    Peter, without knowing which fan we’re talking about, it kind of sounds like your problem might be that the light is not compatible with LED bulbs or it’s not the right wattage. Since halogens work just fine…is there a different in wattage? If we can figure out the model, we can check the manual for that model to see if the light is compatible with LED bulbs or not

    Thanks for the response! The model number for mine is LP8071LBN. The halogen bulb was 150W, which is about the same power as all the other bulbs on that floor of my house combined (and actually exceeds that model’s maximum wattage) – the LED is 9W. I think the manual just calls for 100W halogen without specifying that an LED cannot be used.

    If low wattage could be the problem, do you know if there might be a workaround, or am I restricted to using a halogen (I replace with 100W I guess)?
