INTRODUCTION
BEFORE YOU START
• CAUTION: RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK! Installation is to be in accordance with the National Electrical Code,
ANSI/NFPA 70-1999, and local codes. If you are unfamiliar with the wiring codes, you should use a qualified
electrician. To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not install control to a receptacle,
fluorescent light fixture, motor-operated appliance, or transformer-supplied appliance.
• 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 downrods and Sloped
Ceiling Adapters (SCAs) 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 2.85 amps. The fan uses about 1 amp or 100 watts.
Maximum light current is about 1.85 amps or 190 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.
• WARNING: Do not bend the blade brackets when installing the brackets, balancing the blades, or cleaning the
fan. Do not insert foreign objects in between the rotating fan blades.
Unpacking
Before assembling and installing your ceiling fan, remove all parts from the shipping cartons and check them
against the parts listed in the Parts Guide. Before discarding packaging materials, be certain that all parts have
been removed.
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.
Fuse Box
(Remove fuse for the
circuit you will be
working on)
Circuit Breaker
(Trip breaker for the
circuit you will be
working on)
• Inspect the contents of your carton for possible
shipping or handling damage. If parts are missing or
damaged, call 1-888-227-2178.
• 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 working on it or
replacing lightbulbs.
• 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

MOUNTING RECOMMENDATIONS
GENERAL GUIDELINES
Before mounting your Casablanca fan, read the following 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 8' above the
floor.
• Do not locate the fan in a doorway or above a swinging door.
• 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 kitchens, 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 an Extension Downrod
For optimum performance and appearance, an
extension downrod should be used with your
Casablanca fan when installing on high (cathedral)
ceilings or sloped ceilings. Casablanca offers
standard downrods in increments of 6" up to 60". See
your Authorized Casablanca Dealer for details.
EXAMPLE 1
NOTE: The fan may wobble or vibrate if pole length
is not long enough and inside blade is too close to
downslope or side wall. Using a longer downrod will
usually solve the problem.
EXAMPLE 2
Calculation of Ceiling Angle
Use the tear-off Ceiling Angle Template card inserted
in this manual. It provides you with a simple “go” or
“no go” for installing your fan on a sloped ceiling.
EXAMPLE 3
This slope is less than 32º.
It is OK to install your fan.
This slope is 32º. This is the maximum slope that will allow the fan to
hang straight down. It is OK to install
your fan.
This slope is more than 32º. Your fan
will not hang straight down. Contact
your local Authorized Casablanca
Dealer to purchase a “Sloped Ceiling
Adapter.”

FAN INSTALLATION
GETTING STARTED
Installing a New Ceiling Fixture Outlet Box
Using Existing 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.
After turning the power OFF at its source (either the
circuit breaker or fuse box), lower the old fixture and
disconnect the wiring. Check the ceiling fixture outlet
box to be sure it is marked “Approved for Ceiling Fan
Mounting.” If it is not, a new box must be installed.
WARNING!
To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock,
or personal injury, mount to outlet box
marked “Acceptable Fan Support of 22.7
kg (50 lbs.) or less” using the mounting
hardware provided with the outlet box.
Note: The weight of this fan is 24 pounds.

Note: After removing the old fixture, check the outlet
box to ensure that it is supported by a joist or beam
across its upper surface. If not, a 2 x 4 stud must be
installed.
JOIST
Step 1a. Remove the knockout plug in the center of
the outlet box or drill a 1/2-inch hole for the lag screw
to pass through. Then drill a 1/4-inch guide hole into
the joist or beam to a depth of 3 inches.
Step 1b. Route the outlet box wires through the
keyhole slot of the crossbar mounting bracket as
shown. Attach the crossbar mounting bracket to the
outlet box with the screws provided, making sure the
outlet box wires are not pinched by the washer.
CAUTION:
To reduce the risk of personal injury, use
only the mounting hardware provided

CARE RECOMMENDATIONS
Fan 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 be removed easily using a mild detergent and slightly dampened
soft cloth. An antistatic agent may be used, but never use abrasive cleaning agents as these will damage the finish.
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 luster.
• For painted and high-gloss blades, surface smudges or an accumulation of dirt and dust can be removed easily using a
mild detergent and slightly dampened soft cloth. An antistatic agent may be used, but never use abrasive cleaning agents
as these will damage the finish.
• Warning: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend the blade brackets when installing the brackets, balancing the
blades, or cleaning the fan. Do not insert foreign objects in betweeen rotating fan blades.
No Need for Lubrication
• 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 Lightbulbs
• Be sure to turn the power to OFF at the wall switch or circuit breaker before changing lightbulbs.
• Replace bulbs with the same type as you removed from the light fixture.
• The maximum wattage rating for this fan’s light kit is 100 watts for the light. NOTE: In compliance with US Federal Energy
Regulations, this ceiling fan contains a device that restricts the light kit to a maximum of 190 watts. Exceeding that limit or the marked
limit on this product may result in a fire hazard or improper operation.
