Question about Casablanca Fan Metropolitan 6445T

1 Answer

Is there a reason not to use LED lights in my Casablanca metropolitan fans with intellitouch controls fans

I have recently switched over from incandescent lights to LEDS and found some LEDs that work well in my fan-- I talked with the bulb manufacturer that told me their dimming bulbs do well in a fan. Can I do harm to my controls by using dimming LEDS. We rarely, if ever, have used the dimming feature on the intellitouch since the lighting is never bright enough with the fan up high in the cathedral ceiling. I really want to conserve energy by changing out the fan bulbs to something more efficient but not at the risk of doing harm to my fan controls.

    Well, the dimmer/light button on the Intellitouch oad does not work with these dimming LEDS. They are either fully on, or off.

    The dimmer does work with the incandescents, other dimmers in the house work fine with the new dimming LEDS. casablanca says they have no plans to have an Intellitouch switch for use with LEDS.

I think the fan should be fine. If the fan is set to have a dimming option and the bulbs you use are dimming bulbs, I don't see the problem. They may be from different manufacturers but they should cause damage to each other. LEDS shouldn't be a problem.

I've never heard of the light and reverse buttons being reversed. Normally It's the fan and light thats swapped (but your aware of that already). I would try a working w-32 from one of the other fans. There's also a shop called Fan Man Lighting in Minnesota who has a guy named Jason who has been fixing fans for over 20 years, He helped me with my Casa problems. Their website is www.FanManLighting.com Hope this helps.

Sounds like either the IT wall switch has malfunctioned, OR the IT board inside of the fan has shorted out. This is actually a fairly rare problem with the boards and you may get it covered under warranty. Try calling Casablanca. This fan is worth repairing rather than buying a new one.

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.

I have a casablanca intellitouch ceiling fan and if you change a bulb while the unit is powered on you ruin the control board. The control boards are expensive but easily replaced by a diy-er. I think I have encountered this problem twice. These fans are very well made and in the past I decided it was worth repairing. However with the new fan technology out there it would be wise to shop around and weigh your options.

Casablanca fan is not working!!


The controler board has gone out due to either a power surge, overheating or too much wattage in the lamps. There are two types of of controlers and both are subject to this kind of failure. Here's a troubleshooting link
