I have a Casablanca "Four Seasons" ceiling fan, 4 blades, multiple fan speed option (controlled by a knob), plus a light attachment. The fan has been working great for 10+ years. Suddenly, the blades stop working -but the lights still work fine.
The fan is old, but was expensive and am wondering if there is a fuse on the thing that blew... or if I can find a comparable part to fix whatever is wrong.
120 vac, 80 HZ, 0.9 amps

Age means nothing for ceiling fans for lamps (isn't that quaint?) they would take a GU24 base in some European countries or an Edison medium in North America. I recommend going to LED for a replacement because ceiling fans are a pain to change bulbs and either indancescent or compact fluorescent have filaments that are vibration sensitive. Not so with LED. LED life is better , and they are more efficient anyway. Good luck!
sounds very intriguing really, like some body has played the
practical joke of turning the blade assembly upside down.
Just an onservatio. Can the blades be removed and replaced upside down? please let me know what you discover, it sounds very interesting
According to the model # you gave the fan has a 2-3" down rod. You can not get ride of that or you can not mount the fan. here is a manual for the fan that you listed. On page 3 you will see how to mount to ceiling. If this is not the fan give me the right one so I can see if it can be flush mounted to the ceiling.
Grinding indicates failed bearings. This is causing excess load in the motor and that is causing the flickering. This is not a user repair and would like cost around $130.00 for labor and bearing assuming you find a shop willing to do it. Most fans have pressed bearings and are very cheap.
If this fan has a pullchain that also controls the fan speed, and you have a remote, the pullchain has to be set for the highest speed. If it is set at medium or low, it will mess with the remote operation. Note: usually high speed is the first pull after the "off" position.
