Hi I bought the Hampton Bay Universal Ceiling Fan Light Kit.  I wired it up exactly as instructed, blue wire from the fan to the black wire from the kit and both white wires together. I used the two bulbs that came with the kit. Yes there is power going to the blue wire. Not working. Why?

Hello Bill1953, and welcome to the Community!

I have two suggestions; first, have you tried different bulbs, new ones that you purchased separately? Suggestion #2, with either set of bulbs did you pull on the chain to turn on the lights? Even though you have the blue wire attached to the black wire, the pull chain that belongs to the light kit can still separately control the lights. 

If neither of these suggestions help, please contact Hampton Bay customer service at the number below.

Hi used the bulbs supplied with the kit. I did pull the chain but it made no difference.

I also put power to the kit when it is not wired to the fan. Everything works fine and the chain operates as it should.

As soon as it is wired to the fan nothing works!
