SOURCE: need a replacement fan speed potentiometer.

Okay -- first off, I don't know where she got that number from, but that's idiotic.

The variable-speed switch will provide different readings depending on where it's turned to. If the switch is busted ("open), it will typically display a reading of 'infinity' on your ohmmeter.

And yes -- the best place to find a replacement is Radio Shack, since Casablanca discontinued them.

HOWEVER---

Casablanca's variable-speed ceiling fans -- specifically the "SlumberQuiet" ones, which were made from circa 1980 or 1981 to the early/mid 1990s when variable-speed was discontinued -- are well-known for breaking down. The problem is almost never the potentiometer (variable-speed dial). Rather, the problem is almost always the resistor which is mounted in the heat-sink inside the fan's motor housing. There are NO replacements left for these -- so Casablanca makes a "variable-speed to 3-speed conversion kit", which will convert your fan to a more normal 3-speed pull-chain (hi-med-low) setup.

I hope that helps! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask!

SOURCE: Intell-Touch instructions for casablanca fan/light

Light Operation: With the light in the off position press and hold the light button (do not let go). The lights should start at a dim setting and gradually get brighter and brighter. When they get to a setting you desire let go of the light button. To reduce the brightness of the light you must first turn the light off, and then press the light button and hold it in as described above. If the light is off, and you press the light button quickly to turn it on, the light will go back to the previous setting. So if you last had the light on the high setting, it will go back to the high setting, if you had the light at a lower setting it will turn back on to the lower setting. Keep in mind you can increase the light intensity at any time by pressing and holding the light button, but to decrease the light intensity, you must first turn the light off, and start over by pressing and holding in the light button.
Fan Operation: With the fan in the off position, press and hold the fan button (do not let go). The fan should start at a slower speed and get faster and faster. When the fan is at the speed you desire, let go of the fan button. To slow down the fan speed you must first turn the fan speeds off by pressing and releasing the fan button. If the fan speeds are off, and you press the fan button quickly to turn it on, the fan will go back to the previous setting. So if you last had the fan at the highest setting, it will go back to the high setting, if you had the fan at a lower setting it will turn back on to the lower setting. Keep in mind you can increase the fan speed at any time by pressing and holding the fan button, but to decrease the fan speed you must first turn the fan off, and start over by pressing and holding in the fan button.

SOURCE: i have a Casablanca "trident"

Hello Duke,

I'm guessing you have a "prime touch" remote control system. I'm not exactly sure whats going on but the W-505 Prime Touch receiver in the fan is the brains of the system. They sell replacement W-505 parts at Fan Man Lighting.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Flickering/buzzing CFLs when turning on

Is the difference that the new one is dimmable or you have installed a dimmer switch as well? If so thats the problem. CFL can't be dimmed and act weird on a transformer. Only option would be to open it and remove the dimmer pack inside the fan or swap to a normal wall switch.

I need to know the wiring to a replacement switch for a ceeling fan no lights,Cassablanca Lady delta modle


White wire is probably a wire you connect to a light kit, if you had one. Fan switch should have 4 wires. If it's not from Casablanca it's probably not the correct switch.

I have a Casablanca slumber three delta ii that I want to get a light fixture to fit. Can I use a Hunter, or are there certain ones I need to use?


You have to use the bottom plate to attach the light kit to so whatever you get ,you have to be able to screw the two screws back on the fan. I have some older Casablanca light kits that will work without the bottom cap. fanman9952@aol.com

Replace the bulb. If you are going crazy while getting a new bulb turn off the breaker for the room. A serious design flaw, I would complain to Casablanca if you have the time.

Replacing the flywheel on a Homestead 6 blade fan Are there any instruction sheets that are available?


I had to do the same with my Casablanca fan. Biggest problem was getting the light kit holder off the bottom of the fan before I could remove the remnants of the flywheel. Had to purchase a special tool to pull the light kit holder off. If this sounds like what you are faced with let me know and I will be happy to give you additional details.

Casablanca stealth fan light scrapes against blade surround


There are two probable causes. One, the light housing has been pushed/bent up into the rotating assembly, which is possible if the fan were ever removed from the ceiling and sat on the glass.

If it has never been removed however, the most likely cause is that the Allen Set screw on the flywheel has loosened allowing the flywheel to slip down the motor shaft. It's a purely mechanical problem and if memory serves, to get to the flywheel, you remove the light pan and it's right there. Find the set screw, loosen it enough so that the flywheel is easy to move up and down and raise it up a bit and then cinch it down tight. It's a fairly common problem and for the life of me I cannot understand why Casablanca would not use loctite on that set screw. I mean you pay $500+ for a fan, it should outlast you, right?

We are installing a lighting fixture on our Casablanca 4944D Concentra. We can get current across the various wires, but can not get the light to turn on. The colors of the wires are blue, black, red,...


On ceiling fans, the blue wire is designated for the accessory light kit. If you are using the Casablanca kit, it should be wired with a matching plug that just, well, plugs into the fan.

If you are adding another brand of light kit, you only need to connect the blue wire (hot/common) to the black wire of the light being attached, and the white (neutral) to the white wire of the light being attached.

Your fan will not have a pull chain/switch for the light attachment, as that is normally supplied pre-wired and installed in the light accessory.

If in doubt about about the wiring, contact Casablanca for a manual showing what light kits are acceptable for adding onto your particular fan model.

Also, please turn off the power before connecting the light kit to the fan.

Hope that helps and best regards!
