I installed my Hunter Ceiling Fan a little over a year ago. A few nights ago my wife told me the lights in the ceiling fan blinked a few times when she turned it on. Over the next few day the problem got much worse. When I turned on the light switch, the lights would not turn on. After a few minutes the lights would begin to flash, like a strobe light. This flashing would last for about a minute.
This morning I removed the light kit. I noticed the watt regulator, part 98480-02. I connected the wires directly that were wired through the regulator. So far, the light now works fine!
