Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) Is the fan and light kit controlled by pull chains or a wall switch or a remote control?

2) Do you have either a 2 wire lead AC voltage tester (a contact type) or a multi-meter available to take voltage measurements?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Pull chains and yes I do have one
Expert:  Kevin replied 3 months ago.

1) Have you double checked the light kit blue wire splice to make sure it is properly spliced and secured to the house ceiling box wire?

2) At the light bulb socket, insert 1 test probe to the middle/center tab of the socket and the 2nd test probe to the interior shell of the socket where the bulb screws in. Using the pull chain, confirm if you have 120 volts when the chain is in the ON position.

Refer to attached diagram when measuring for voltage at the light bulb socket:
