Ceiling Fan light problems

I've been living in a house for about a month now and everything was ok until about a week and a half ago when the living room light on the ceiling fan stopped working.

There on two 4-switch panels on either side of the room. All of the other switches controlling the fan, light over the fireplace and outlets seem to work ok. The pull switch on the light clicks when you pull it so that doesn't seem to be the problem and I took down the canopy on the fan to check the wires and everything seems to be ok.

Is there a fix for this or should I just start looking for a new ceiling fan.

Thanks

Welcome to the forums! We have to go elementary, so forgive us. Is the bulb good? Was the 3rd bulb good? (Law of averages). You mentioned two panels. What type panels? The chain must be in the "on" position for any wall switch to work.

Thanks glad to be here

I actually changed the light bulbs twice and checked each on another lighting fixture so I think they're good.

By panels I actually meant switches. The kind that have 4 together I probably used the wrong wording and confused you. Sorry about that.

The chain seems to be click when I pull it so I thought that it was good but I guess it might be worth switching out to see.

Before you start swapping out parts, when you checked the wiring in the ceiling box, did you find 120V hot-to-neutral and hot-to-ground on the switched feed for the lights?
