Question about Casablanca Fan Bel Air Halo Brushed Nickel Ceiling

Blade holder rubs on light diffuser

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.

SOURCE: 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?

Hunter 20765

I found my own answer by calling Hunter Fan Technical support. They informed me (even though its not in the manual) I have Hunter Blades called "Easy Lock". I had to remove the Hunter arm and blade away from the ceiling body fan in order to figure how to remove the blade. Once I removed the arm which is attached to the blade; I laid it the blade portion on my lap and then the arm away from my body. Then I picked up the small clip unlocking mechanism toward me and then slide the clip unlocking mechanism toward the left of my body. Then the blade came right out. There are no screws to attach the blade. You just reverse the procedure for to lock the blades back into place.

Will a smaller blade on a ceiling fan cause problems

Interesting situation.. not many people want to down-size a fan. Anyway, reducing the size of the fan blade shouldn't cause a problem - as long as the pitch or angle of the blade remains the same or is less than the original. Increasing the angle with a smaller blade could actually move MORE air than what the motor was designed to do - resulting in overloading and shortening the motor's life in the best case scenario. Worst case scenario - well, anything for electric devices in a worst case scenario usually involves fire, burns and even death (though not likely to happen).

Prior to starting, make sure all the blades are the same in every way including: length, width, angle and weight. A warped blade can cause wobble, too. Stand on a ladder and spin the fan by hand. Look for a blade that is tipped up or hangs lower than the others. Make adjustments as needed to correct (it may not be possible to correct a warped blade - so be forewarned). If any of the variables listed in the first sentence of this paragraph are different from those of the other blades, wobble and motor noise will result. Neither condition should be allowed to exist longer than absolutely necessary. You can minimize these effects by operating the fan at a slower speed. Generally, the blades should be pretty close in all of these variables - but a wobbly fan indicates an imbalance. Weights placed on fan blades can help correct wobble - but can be tricky to determine which blade is the cause.

Good luck!

Extension pole sways back and forth while the fan is on

One or more blades is out of line. Get a ruler or a stick and mark the distance from the tip of one blade to the ceiling. Hold the stick in place and carefully rotate the fan until the next blade is near the stick. Do this until you have all four marks on the stick. It is important to try not to alter the position of the extension pole in between blades. Now you will find that one or more blades are at different heights. Carefully bend the worst blade until it is closer to the rest. If teh blade holders are cast, this may not be possible and you may have to pack the blade angle with washers or cardboard until they are right.

If by some chance they are all close, then it may be the "attack angle" of one blade. This is harder tot detect but sometime you can pick which balde by eye and adjust by trial and error until it is better.

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.

Cannot stop the ceiling fan from wobbling. Have

you still have a blade that is out of balance. mesure each blade from the bottom side end to the celing in one spot. Do this for each blade when you find the one that is closest to the celing then you have to place the wheight on the edge of that blade then spin it to make the right adjustment then seta stick on weight where the temp. weight is at

The fun does not move the air

Hello acaprotta96,
If you are concerned about the angle of the fan blades not positioned to move air, you can add washers to change that angle but you will need to do that to all the blades. The blades should be balanced to eliminate wobble. If I were you though, I would contact the manufacturer and state your problem and see if they offer replacement blade supports with a more aggressive angle. As for breaking the motor... highly unlikely. especially if you are installing an even distribution of washers to balance things..

Ceiling fan

Hello Capt Treb. Turn off the power. Check all the blade and support arm mounting screws for tightness. Stand on a step stole and view the blades from a horzinal plane to check all blades have the same pitch by slowing rotating by hand. You may have to bend the arms a little to aquire an equal on the plane. To locate a weight balance is a shoot & miss with the balance weights. Good luck.

Noisey fan

In my case noise was coming from the plastic blade rubbing against the sheet metal housing. I removed the motor and added 2 washers to the mounting screws. The washers acted as spacers and lifted up the motor/blade assembly with respect to the sheet metal housing. The blade no longer rubbed against the housing and the noise stopped.
