Hello. is this fan remote control fan? what type of bulbs do you have ( incandescent, fluorescent) ? do you have a dimmer for the unit?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

it is not a remote control fan. The problem started recently with the original bulbs that worked fine up until now. They are not fluorescent. I do have the fan on a dimmer switch which I use to dim the light. It's not a dimmer specific for a ceiling fan.

It sounds like a loose wire. you can start look for it by taking the light kit part down and check if there is any wire that is going to the light kit is loose? Please let me know if you find anything.
