Question about Casablanca Fan 3245T Ceiling
Casablanca Stealth fan light assembly has started scraping against rotating circular blade mount during operation. Problem and fix? I don't want to do any major disassembly to correct -- would rather call a repair facility.
I had same problem with a Casablanca Stealth fan purchased 10 years ago. As suggested by mrfanman2u, I removed the light plate (3 screws) and an additional metal plate (3 screws) with a phillips screwdriver. The flywheel was now exposed. I then loosened the Allen set screw on the flywheel with an Allen wrench and pushed the flywheel further up on the motor shaft. After tightening the Allen set screw and reinstalling the 2 plates the problem was fixed!

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?
