Art's suggestion may work. Haven't had the light bulb problem; know at least one of the fans around here is Casablanca and at least one is Hunter. I had a problem with the soldering iron tip freezing in the iron -- finally tried using heat sink compound and the replacement tips now come out without ruining the iron. Use a thin layer and wash hands thoroughly afterwards -- the jar I have states is toxic.
