Casablanca W32 Fan and Light Switch Reversed

I installed a new W32 wall controller for a Casablanca fan and the Fan and Light switches are reversed. When I swap the black wires with white stripes as described in the installation manual, the switch is totally dead and does nothing. When I swap the black wires with white stripes back, it is fine except that the Fan and Light switches are reversed. Any help you could provide would be appreciated!

    We cannot get the fan to switch directions. The reverse button on the remote does not work and there is no manual way of switching the direction on the fan. The fan will only spin clock wise. We have tried switching remotes and when that did not work we exchaged for a new fan. Help!!!

    Please!!!

Check to see if the wiring at the fan is reversed - perhaps the neutral (typically white) & hot (typically black or red) are swapped.

If this is not the case, check to see if the neutral & hot are switched for the entire circuit.

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.

I have a Casablanca New orleans fan that I just had fixed by an approved Casablanca repair place. The fan is and always has been connected to a dimmer switch. After a repair of a simple flywheel, the fan...


Hi, is this fan an older fan with the dimmer type control on the fan itself, (and you have a wall speed control in addition to) or is it the later fan with a three speed pull chain control? If the latter, the service rep may have accidentally placed the fan on Medium speed which due to additional capacitance from the speed control board in the switch housing, could cause the symptoms you describe.

Thanks, Brian

P.S. That's an $$$$ fan, glad to see you had it repaired instead of replaced.

I replaced a ceiling fan light combo with a light fixture only. After the installation, the off and on position reversed on the wall switch. When i flipped the switch to the new off position it tripped the...


You are causing a short when you flip the switch because it is connecting your hot wire and your neutral together, but I need more info before I can be more specific. I assume this was not the type of fan/light where the fan is controlled by a pull chain, and there was only one switch on the wall. Correct?
So there had to be at least one extra wire at the light fixture. What did you do with that?
You would have had an extra switch (or speed control) on the wall. What did you do with that?

If you removed the extra wall switch, what did you do with those wires?
Is there a 3-way switch involved? (is there more than one wall switch to control the same light fixture?)
Thanks for using fixya, I'll be glad to help further.

Hunter ceiling fan-just installed -possible speed control problem


Sounds like the fan is defective. All internal wiring from the switch to the motor is factory installed. The fan has power going to it. Just to make sure, double check the wiring from the ceiling fixture to the fan.
Problem could be a faulty switch on the fan or faulty motor(bad winding for med. speed). Try reverse switch on the fan to operate the opposite direction and see if medium speed works. If medium does work in opposite direction, it pretty much points to a defective fan. In any case, unless you discover that the ceiling wires were reversed going into the fan, I'd say new fan to the returns dept.
