I have two upstairs bedrooms, a master bedroom and a guest room, with
some strange wiring. Both rooms have ceiling fans, but the
lightswitch on the very far end of the master bedroom controls the
power to the ceiling fans in *both*
the master bedroom and the guest
room. It is the only switch for the two rooms. Needless to say, we
don't use that switch. As a result, the only way to turn on the
lights (or fans) in either bedroom is with the fan's pullchains.
So yesterday I went out and bought a Hampton Bay fan/light remote
control unit for the master bedroom. Installed it and it works great:
now I have a lightswitch for the light and fan in that room.
Problem is, ever since I installed it now the lights in the fan in the
guest bedroom dim or brighten intermittently every 5-10 minutes or so
(even when the fan in the master bedroom is just running without the
lights or fan speed being adjusted). I can only guess it has
something to do with the remote unit that is on the same circuit.
Any ideas anyone? Is this potentially dangerous?
