Hello, there is a small rotary pull chain switch inside that needs to be replaced. If you are handy with appliance repair you can remove it and take it to a lighting specialty shop for a replacement. If you are not handy tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will get you a short list of companies that can send a person out to do the work.

Hello again, you only have a solution after we discover it, we are currently in trouble shooting mode, attempting to discover the problem. So far it looks like a electrical wiring mistake by the installer, he will not doubt arrive to fix it... if you have any difficulty with him on that, post back and we can go from there. .
