READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
SAFETY FIRST
Safety and the proper operation of your Casablanca fan both require a thorough knowledge of the product
and proper installation; therefore, before attempting to install and operate your Casablanca fan, read this
owner’s manual completely and carefully. Retain this manual for future reference.
CAUTION: To avoid possible electrical shock, make certain that electricity is turned off at
the circuit breaker or fuse box before attempting any installation procedure.
BEFORE YOU START
• All wiring must be in accordance with the National Electric Code ANSI/NFPA 70-1993 and the appropriate local electrical
codes. The National Electric Code requires proper grounding as a precaution against electrical shock. A qualified electrician should be consulted if you are unsure.
• This fan is designed to be installed on an existing electrical outlet box. The outlet box must be UL Listed for ceiling fan
installations, if it is not, a new box must be installed. Casablanca extension poles are available for sloped or high ceiling
installations.
• This ceiling fan requires a grounded electrical supply of 120 VAC, 60 Hz and a minimum 15 amp circuit. The maximum
current requirement for the fan with light fixture is 3.8 amps. The fan uses about 1 amp or 100 watts. Maximum light
current is 2.8 amps or 340 watts of lighting.
• Where wire nuts are employed, be sure all bare wires are within the connectors. When installing the canopy hatch, make
sure all wires are within the canopy and that no wires are being pinched.
For best performance and for your warranty to be valid,
use only genuine Casablanca blades, light fixtures, and accessories.
SAFE USE
• The blades in each pack are matched for equal
weight to assure smooth fan operation. If
more than one fan is being installed, be
careful not to mix blades from different
cartons.
• Inspect the contents of your carton for
possible shipping or handling damage and
report any such damage directly to your
authorized Casablanca dealer.
• It is always a good idea to have an assistant
to help with the installation.
• When cleaning, painting, or working near
your fan, be very careful of the fan and blades.
Always turn the power OFF to the ceiling fan
before servicing it, working on it, or replacing
light bulbs.
• Never insert anything into the path of the
fan blades while the fan is in operation.
• Never install a fan over a pool or spa.
• Never operate a fan that has been damaged
in any way. Contact Casablanca Fan Company
by calling toll free 1-888-227-2178, or
contact your local authorized Casablanca
dealer for assistance in obtaining service.

MOUNTING RECOMMENDATIONS
Before mounting your Casablanca fan, read the following helpful recommendations. The location of the fan, air circulation,
and fan size are all important factors to consider before installation.
Location
Ceiling fans have practical uses in almost every room in your home. We suggest you follow these mounting
recommendations as you decide where to install your Casablanca fan.
• For safety reasons, the fan blades must be a minimum of 7' above the floor.
• Do not locate the fan in a doorway or above a swinging door.
• In any installation, the tips of the blades must be at least 18" from the wall in order to
provide sufficient clearance for the blades.
• In bedrooms, fans work best when mounted above the foot of the bed.
• Over pool tables, be sure to provide plenty of clearance to avoid damage from
pool cues.
• In low ceiling locations, our optional Low Ceiling Adaptor (LCA)—available at
extra cost—can be used to gain 31⁄2".
• In kitchens be sure to allow for open cupboard doors to clear the fan blades.
• Do not install a fan close to, or over, a pool or spa. High humidity combined
with corrosive gases will destroy the finish and warp the blades.
Fan Size
Variable fan speed capability permits the use of a full-size 52" fan even in
smaller rooms. For very large rooms, two fans may be needed.

When to Use Extension Poles
For best performance and best appearance,
an extension pole should be used with
your Casablanca fan when installing on
high (cathedral) ceilings or sloped
ceilings. Casablanca offers standard poles
in increments of 6" up to 5'. Custom poles
are available in lengths up to 10'. See your
Authorized Casablanca Dealer for details.
Note: Fan may wobble or vibrate if
pole length is not long enough and
inside blade is too close to downslope
or side wall. Extending pole length
will usually solve problem.
Calculation of 32°
Use the tear-off Ceiling Angle Template card inserted in the
back of this manual, it provides you with a simple ‘go’ or
‘no-go’ for installing your fan on a sloped ceiling.

GETTING STARTED
Installing a New Ceiling Fixture Outlet Box
If you do not have an existing fixture located where you wish
to place your Casablanca fan, an approved ceiling fixture
outlet box must be installed and wired.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
or personal injury, mount to outlet box marked
acceptable for ceiling fan support using the
mounting hardware provided with the outlet box.
Using Existing Ceiling Fixture Outlet Box
After turning the power OFF at its source (either circuit breaker
or fuse box), lower the old fixture and disconnect the wiring.
Check the ceiling fixture outlet box to be sure that it is
marked ‘Approved for ceiling fan mounting’. If it is not, a new
box must be installed.
NOTE: The fan weight is 17 pounds.

FOUR SEASONS™ III (OUTSIDE USA INSTALLATION)
FAN INSTALLATION OUTSIDE THE USA - EXCLUDING MODELS ENDING IN ‘E’
If you do not have an existing fixture located where you wish to place your Casablanca fan, a new ceiling fixture outlet box
must be installed (use an outlet box marked acceptable for fan support) and an electrical cable to run it. This box must be
secured to the ceiling according to the outlet box manufacturer’s instructions. It is recommended that this be done by
a qualified electrician.
Vaulted or Cathedral Ceiling Installations
Your Casablanca fan may be installed on a vaulted or cathedral ceiling in the same manner as described for a flat ceiling. The
Hang-Tru® mounting system makes it possible to hang your fan on sloped ceilings up to a 32° angle.
Using Existing Ceiling Fixture Outlet Box
After turning electrical power off, lower the old fixture to expose the wiring and the ceiling fixture outlet box. Cut the
fixture wires or if wire nuts have been used, unscrew them and disconnect the wires. The fixture can then be removed.
After removing the old fixture, check the outlet box to sure that it is supported by a joist or beam across its upper surface.
If not, a 2" x 4" stud must be installed.

SAVING MONEY WITH YOUR CEILING FAN
I N S U M M E R , the movement of
air creates a cooling “wind chill”
effect. A room can actually feel
several degrees cooler, without setting the thermostat lower.
I N W I N T E R , hot air rises to the
ceiling while cool air settles to the
floor. Trapped against the ceiling,
the warm air is wasted. If you turn
up the thermostat, energy costs
will rise.
R U N N I N G I N R E V E R S E , your
Casablanca fan can recirculate
warm air near the ceiling down
into the living area, providing even
heating and comfort (with a pleasant effect on heating bills).

TROUBLESHOOTING
BEFORE REQUESTING SERVICE:
Please follow this troubleshooting guide before contacting your dealer for assistance.
Caring for Finishes: For cleaning, a soft brush or lint-free cloth
should be used to prevent scratching the finish. A vacuum cleaner
brush nozzle can remove heavier dust. Surface smudges or an accumulation of dirt and dust can easily be removed by using a mild
detergent and slightly dampened soft cloth. An antistatic agent
may be used, but never use abrasive cleaning agents. These will
damage the finish. Painted and high-gloss blades may be cleaned
in the same manner.
Blades: Wood finish blades should be cleaned with a furniture polishing cloth. Occasionally, a light coat of furniture polish may be
applied for added protection and beauty.
PROBLEM
Never Lubricate this Fan!
The precision motor at the heart of your Casablanca fan features
sealed bearings that are lubricated for life. Do not attempt to oil
the motor.
Changing Light Bulbs
Be sure to turn power to the fan OFF at the wall switch or circuit
breaker before changing light bulbs. Replace bulbs with same type
as removed from the fixture. Each fan is rated for a maximum TOTAL
wattage of lighting.
Exceeding the rated maximum allowable wattage for the fan will
burn out the fan electronics module and void the warranty.
3-SPEED
POSSIBLE REMEDIES..
FAN WILL NOT START
Check main circuit fuses, circuit breakers, or wall switch position.
Check all wire connections, making sure the power is turned off during this inspection.
Check that reverse switch is not set in center of throw.
FAN WOBBLES OR SHAKES
