We recently moved into a house where every room has a Harbor breeze ceiling fan,
in our main living room the light does not work. We have checked the batteries in the remote
and tried new light bulbs. What should we try next?

Is there a pullchain for the light also, or it can only be used from the remote?October 14, 2021 at 9:30 pm #357
This page here has an answer regarding why the fan light may not be working. It goes on to talk about wiring colors etc. so you may need to open up your fan and take a look inside. Hopefully this information is helpful.
Note: Always make sure to cut the power off at the breaker before taking a look inside the canopy or housing. You can’t look at wires while they’re still hot, so make sure the power is switched off at the breaker (or fuse panel).November 28, 2021 at 11:06 am #666Larry DGuest
I have a couple ceiling fans in my garage. One of the two has lights that will not work. The remote will turn on the fan but not the lights. I wanted to change the bulbs to see is if tha is the problem but it is the model with the outer metal protective cage around the globe. If I take off the bottom cap the globe cannot be removed because of the metal cage. HOW do I get into it to change the bulbs?February 27, 2022 at 7:48 pm #1360
Hey Larry. In terms of removing the protective cage, we would need to know the model of the fan in order to give more detailed instructions. Otherwise the only instructions we can provide are “there are likely some screws to remove the cage.”April 23, 2022 at 1:25 pm #1881DGuest
The light in my ceiling fan has become erratic. I changed the bulb afterwards if I push the socket (its on tight) the light will come on but soon go off. I am beginning to think there is a ballast issue. Does these light have ballasts. Model# 523 342 or 523 127
