    Thank you.

    Could that be said to be a poor design of the fan not to take into account such a thing?

    Probably designed before CFLs were in regular use.

    How can the capacitor charge when it is fed with AC?

    It's not just a capacitor inside.

    Thanks flameport. I'd have never known it was the bulb. I've replaced the light with spotlights and the timer on the fan works perfectly fine with those, though I'll be putting the fan on a separate switch from the light anyway.
