Customer Question
Harbor breeze has a...

Harbor breeze has a ceiling fan and light kit with a wattage limiter that I would like to remove. It limits the bulbs to 3 40-W incandescent equivalent bulbs which is way too low to light the room adequately. It is an LED light kit and I intend to only use LED bulbs, but the wattage limit is just 6.5w per bulb, The equivalent of 340 W incandescent bulbs. Would removing this limiter cause me any problems or melt the light kit?

Contractor's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

2 or 3 months

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

If possible, yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I really don't know whether to cut or reroute wires to bypass or remove the wattage limiter

Thanks for counting on us to help with your electrical issue. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Let me review your question! That limiter is put there for a reason by the manufacture! if you remove the limiter you will void any warranty on the fan or the light kit!
