Question about Casablanca Fan Bel Air Halo Brushed Nickel Ceiling
The vertical axis of the fan body is not exactly at right angle to the plane of the blades. Consequently the rotating blade holder rubs slightly on the glass cover on the bottom of the fan body. I can move the blade holder back into the proper position, but it will not stay. Any suggestions? Thank you.
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?
