Ceiling Fan Hummmmmmmmmm

Have a Fanimation Islander ceiling fan and a litex remote control (1 receiver + transmitters at both a wall switch and handheld unit). I use CFLs with the bulb mfr's OK.
With the weather a little warmer, I cranked the fan up and realized it was humming at both medium and high, and that the hum disappeared momentarily when switching speeds. Additionally, one CFL has always flickered a bit when the lights were turned off, but now it flickers all night long. No problems when the lights are turned on.
Called Litex, and possibly I was having a really slow brain day, but didn't comprehend a thing they said. Specifically, that I might have overloaded the light fixture. Huh? With CFLs? They also mentioned possible bad capacitors, but I didn't understand if they meant in the fan or the receiver.
I'm guessing Fanimation will blame the control if I contact them. Too bad. So sad.
I'm beginning to think the Litex person may have been on to something. I understand the fan has a healthy electric appetite at high speed. Like north of 1 amp.
Does anyone have any ideas? It's mounted 11 feet off the ground so I can't easily take it down. The whole setup was wired and installed by an electrician and is less than a year old.
Thanks.
