How old is the fan? Fans or, more properly, fan light kits sold during the last few years have built-in power limiters rated at 190 watts so that power to the light bulbs is limited to three 60 watt bulbs or some similar combination.
But, some power limiters are located in the canopy (because of heat), so it's possible that the fan was wired such that both the fan and light kit are connected through the power limiter. If the power limiter has tripped or failed, that could be the cause of your problem. Most power limiters reset automatically when the load is reduced to less than 190 watts and the power is switched off for a few minutes and then on again. I've never seen a power limiter with a reset button unless that button is marked and visible to anyone looking at the light kit or fan mounting hardware.
