Hi, I’m baffled, but as an amateur I don’t know what to try next.

I have installed a 3 speed ceiling fan with light and remote control in the bedroom.

The fan works fine. The problem is the light.

The ceiling point is three core cable, brown blue and earth. There is a wall on/off switch.

When the wall switch is turned on the light always turns on.

Using the remote control the fan can be set to any of the three speeds successfully. The remote also will turn off the fan successfully.

However if you turn off the light with the remote control, the light flashes rapidly. Changing the bulb for a LED bulb causes the bulb to dim rather like a nightlight. So using the fan at night is impossible without removing the light bulb.

What I have tried:
Switching the live/neutral over when connecting up.
Changing the remote and its receiver for a new one

Neither of these have any effect.

The fan is an AireRyder Fresco bought from Amazon.

If anyone has any ideas, please I’m listening. (But please remember I’m not an electrician)

Thanks folks

Why don't you take the fan down, connect it to a 3core flex, put a plug on the other end of the flex and plug it in and see what happens

Thanks for this great idea.

I ran a long cable up and connected that and plugged that into a socket.

Exactly the same result.

So if you have had the same result from two different supplies, it can not be your wiring, then I would suggest you send the fan back as it has a problem.
