Need advice to remove ceiling fan Casablanca Model No. CB 184440 from the ceiling. The fan is so tight to the ceiling I cannot get a screwdriver between the fan to get to a slot in the cover that is against the ceiling. I can see a screw in the slot but cannot get to it. Do I have to take the fan apart? Or what?
Answer: "Not sure what model of Casablanca fan you have since the model number you supplied is not a Casablanca model number. Regardless, my suggestion is that you tilt the fan away from you as you attempt to remove the screw. The fan sits in a ball that can rotate up to 30 degrees when you push on it. Be careful not to bend the blade irons by pushing on the blades. I would remove the blades first for that matter to make it easier. Also, it is best if you use a very short phillips head screwdriver.
If you email me some pictures of your fan, I will most likely recognize it and may be able to offer a different tip, or at least confirm that my advice was correct. Email pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org

For some unknown reeason my fan blades are now turning in the reverse mode. I do not have a remote control for the fan. I have a wall dial setting to run the fan. It has been installed for 3 years now and was always turning in the forward mode to move air downward. I have tried to locate the switch on the motor housing but can not find it without taking the whole fan down. Can you tell me where the switch is? Is it possible the TV remote had an effect on the change of direction
Answer: "I need to know the brand and model number of your ceiling fan to be of much help. That info should be located on a label that is on the top of your fan. Also, if you can email me some pictures of your fan, it will help. Email pictures to: email@example.com"

I love your website, it is so informative and I have used it to purchase the Emerson Eco Midway earlier this year for my home. I am now helping my brother set up a couple of restaurants and wanted some advice on commercial ceiling fans. Are their any obvious differences and what should I be looking for?
Answer: "There are not really any "Commercial" ceiling fans. There are what you would call "Industrial" ceiling fans, but those are used in very large open areas such as manufacturing facilities and warehouses. Most restaurants do not use industrial ceiling fans, but rather choose the types of fans you see on our website with all. Most restaurants that we deal with choose higher quality fans that have a particular style and finish that fits their decorative theme. When searching our website, the default sort results will put the higher quality models first, making it easy to find them.
Can you email me some pictures of the restaurant? I'll be happy to offer some suggestions, or forward your response to one of other ceiling fan experts who can take you through the decision making process. Email your pictures to: firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi. Is the minimum height 24"? I see that you have 3 different drive rod lengths mentioned, but I only saw 24" and 36". We have an 11 x 11 room with a 9 foot ceiling. We would be going with the 18" blades to make the size 44". If you had a shorter drive rod might that work? Thanks!
Answer: "The 24" version (with the 9" rod) is the shortest version available and is designed for ceilings at least 9 feet high. This puts the blades at just a little over 7 feet from the floor, which meets building codes.
The mention of 3 different rod sizes was incorrect. Emerson actually had a longer model (48") in the past that was discontinued, but we failed to change the description on our site. My apologies...seeing as I am the webmaster and am responsible for such changes. I have made the correction so future visitors will not be confused.

I just bought a 44" MinkaAire Concept II fan and meant to get the 52" fan. Do you sell only the blades? And, will the 52" blades fit the 44" fan? thanks!
Answer: "We do sell the blades separately. However, the 52" concept II fans have a larger motor which is designed to accommodate the larger blades. If you put the larger blades on the small 44" motor, it will not operate properly and most likely burn out because it is not designed to handle the additional torque. So changing out the blades is not a viable solution. If you purchased the fan from us, simply give our customer service department a call so you can arrange to exchange your fan."

Your website is THEE MOST informative and helpful and once I narrow my decision I will happily be purchasing my fan from you. I am between the Hunter Classic original, the Emerson Premium and the Emerson Carrera Crande DC. All have various pluses and minuses for my application. I would like to know how much risk of oil leakage the Hunter poses..?
Answer: "I have been in the ceiling fan business for over 25 years and during that time have never had a custom report that oil leaked from their Hunter Original ceiling fan other than when they took it down and moved it. You just need to be careful not to tip the fan too much when there is oil in it. Once installed, it won't leak."

Is this fan 220 volts?
Answer: "The Fanimation Keistone is NOT a 220Volt fan. The voltage (120 volts) is included in the list of specifications on the product page from which your question was posted. We do have quite a few 220 Volt ceiling fans available, but not all of them are searchable in our database. Use these links for more information about the 220 Volt Ceiling Fans that we offer:

do you have replacement parts for Hapmton Bay 52dc10 glass cover?
Answer: "Sorry, we do not carry any replacement parts for Hampton Bay ceiling fans. Hampton Bay fans are sold only by Home Depot, it is their own house brand. So you will need to contact Home Depot to see if they can supply what you need. It is my experience that they do not supply replacement glass for their fans in most cases. In contrast, if you buy a fan from us and break your glass (within the first 5 years), we will replace it FREE. This is an exclusive policy that we provide only to our customers."

Interested in two Minka Aire Traditional Concept Ceiling Fans. 1-44 Model F593-WH and 1-52 Model F594-WH.
QuestionsWhy is the remote an optional extra when it is standard on the equivalent sizes in Concept II Models? What is the optional cost for adding the remote, if I were to purchase from you? Any price break for buying two fans?
Look forward to hearing from you..........Thanks.........Giles.
Answer: "The Traditional Concept Fans are rated for Wet outdoor locations. The remote control transmitters are only rated for use in dry locations, so Minka Aire includes a wall control with these fans instead of the remote control. The receiver that comes with the fan can actually be operated by an optional remote control which can be purchased separately. Keep in mind that since the hand held transmitter is not rated for use outdoors, you should not leave it outside overnight if you opt to use it with a fan that you have installed outside. You can add the optional remote transmitter model RC212 to your fan by clicking on the orange "Controls" button just beneath the main picture on the product detail page. As for questions regarding pricing, we are not allowed to publish any pricing less than what you see on our site, so please call us at: 1-800-201-1193 to get the best deal."

Can this fan hook directly into our household 120V AC current? Do we need a converter? If we need a converter, would it lose energy efficiency?
Answer: "All of the ceiling fans on our site that have DC motors are designed to be hooked up directly to your normal 120V AC household current without any special converter. The conversion from AC to DC is handled inside the fan. You can read more details here: About Ceiling Fans with DC Motors.

Any fans with variable speed control anymore? I have an old Casablanca that does.
Answer: "No, none of the quality ceiling fan manufacturers use a variable speed control on their fans. This type of control was innovative when it was first produced, but it became problematic and was never quite as reliable as desired. It also caused some slight noise in the fan, although the type of control that Casablanca used did seem to be pretty quiet. If you want the most control of your fan speed, I would suggest you look at fans made by Casablanca that have the Inteli-Touch control, which gives you 6 speeds. Give us a call and we will be happy to help you find many other alternatives."

is the Minka model ma-f518-bn outdoor rated only or wet rated? Does the Wet rated Minka F574-BNW come in a smaller (44" or so) model?
Answer: "The F518 44" Concept II ceiling fans are not rated for use outdoors at all (neither damp nor wet locations). The F574 52" series is rated for outdoor Wet or Damp locations, but is not available in a smaller version. Because most outdoor locations are less limited in size, the demand for the 44" version simply does not warrant manufacturing it. If you must have a 44" fan, I suggest you consider the Emerson Curva Sky 44 model CF144BS. This fan is very similar to the Minka Aire Concept II and is outdoor rated for Wet or Damp locations.
FYI: The smaller 44" version of the indoor model uses a smaller motor and blades than the 52" fan. If it was just a matter of swapping out the blades, that would do the trick, but the 52" fan cannot accept the 44" blades and the motor would burn out due to the fact that the RPMs would be too high. In most cases, you can use a bit larger fan that you think...particularly outdoors where you need more airflow just to feel it."

Hi. I would like to buy Minka Aire Spacesaver Flushmount Ceiling Fan Model F510-ORB and other ceiling fans. I live in the Philippines and our electric current in 240V. I noticed most fans are 120V. Cold you convert the power source to 240V? Are there any contemporary fans that has 240V as power source?
Answer: "None of the Minka Aire ceiling fans are available in 240V. Most of the fans made by Modern Fan Company and some of the fans made by Fanimation are available in 220V but none of the fans on our site are available in 240V."

Are the dimensions given for this fan on the 6 in. Down rod or the shorter one? We are looking for fan for RV with a pitched ceiling.
Answer: "The hanging dimensions for all ceiling fans on our site are for the shortest downrod that is included with the fan. So in this case, the dimensions shown in the diagram for the Minka Aire Supra 32 are with the 3 1/2" downrod. If you click the link on the product details page that says "What size do I need? CALCULATE HERE!" you will see details for both included downrods."

Where is the Minka Celing fan made?
Answer: "Minka Aire ceiling fans are all made in China, which is where virtually all ceiling fans sold in the USA are made. This does not mean that they are not good quality. You will find that most Minka Aire ceiling fans have a quality rating of 3 or 4 on ours site. Minka Aire actually manufactures several of the top selling ceiling fans in the USA and we have an exceptionally good track record with us since we have been selling them online for over 15 years. FYI: There are in fact NO ceiling fans that are manufactured in the USA. Read more about this here: Where are ceiling fans made?."
||#9124 Posted: 8/6/2011 6:11:01 PM|
Where are Casablanca fans made?
Answer: "Some time ago, Casablanca ceiling fans were actually assembled in the USA. But that has long sense changed for virtually ALL ceiling fan brands sold in the USA, which are now made in China or Taiwan. What makes Casablanca fans different than most other brands is that they require a higher level of quality control during the manufacturing process and they develop their own designs that are period specific. They use higher quality materials such as cast zinc for many of their motor housings, which is far more expensive, but more durable and attractive, than fans made from stamped sheet metal and they pay extra to have all components precision manufactured and balanced (by humans). They also have their own engineers that design critical inner working components such as the computerized systems that operate their exclusive Inteli-Touch controls. You can read more about this topic here: Ceiling Fans Made in the USA?."

Is it safe to run ceiling fans continuously or do they need some down time. How long can we run them ?
Answer: "The answer to your question depends on the brand and model of the ceiling fan. In general, ceiling fans with a quality rating of 5 on our website can be left running continuously 24 hours a day 365 days a year with very little impact on the motor. The Emerson Midway Eco is a great example of such a fan. Fans rated 4 can most likely handle the same demand. Lesser rated ceiling fans more prone to premature failure if left running in this manner, but there is no specific safety warning given by the manufacturers that I am aware of. There is also no specific testing data that I can refer you to except for my experience knowing which fans seem to rarely have problems with motors burning out. Also, be ware of cheaper ceiling fans sold at home centers and mass merchants as they often use cheap motors that cannot handle being left on for extended periods."

Emerson Midway Eco CF955WW 03, label on fan blades says This Side Up, but is that Up during mounting or Up toward the ceiling? The fan is upside down during blade mounting. Instructions say the label should face the bottom of the fan. Does that mean face the floor? Instructions show the label in a place different from where the label is on my fan.
Answer: "If the labels are confusing or appear to be wrong then install the blades such that when the fan is spinning counterclockwise (looking up at it after it is installed), the lower edge of the blade should be to the right of the upper edge. In other words, the upper edge should lead as the fan spins counterclockwise."

Does a fan with 3 blades give off more air than one with more blades? I had heard if there are less blades the air has a better chance to get in between and cause more of a breeze.
Answer: "All things being equal except for the amount of blades, a 3 blade fan will move slightly more air than a 4 or 5 blade fan. However, the difference is so minimal that it really does not matter. What is more important is the overall combination of motor power, blade aerodynamics, blade pitch and RPMs for any given ceiling fan design. These things have a dramatic impact on the amount of air a fan produces compared to the amount of blades.
If you use the ceiling fan search on our website, our results are automatically sorted by highest quality and highest CFM (airflow). You can change the filter to sort strictly by CFM (airflow), but we recommend that you use the default sort which also includes quality so that you do not end up with a fan that moves lots of air, but lacks in other important aspects such as balance and quiet operation. In the results, you will see graphs that allow you to compare the performance of each fan at a glance. The graphs include quality, airflow, the wattage used and the overall efficiency. We are the only website online that provides this functionality. Here is a link to our Ceiling Fan Homepage where you can begin your search."

I live in a house with a 7ft ceiling height, which of your ceiling fans with light kit would work for me. I live in Florida so it is a must to have ceiling fans installed. Thank you.
Answer: "Building codes require that any ceiling fan that is installed must have the blades at least 7 feet from the floor. So in your case, according to building codes, you cannot install ceiling fans. For others who read this post and are looking for the best low profile ceiling fan, we highly recommend the Minka Aire Concept II series. The Concept II fans have a very low profile with a built-in light that is nearly flush with the bottom of the fan. They hang just 10 1/2" from the ceiling to the bottom of the light and just 8 1/2" from the ceiling to the blades. They are also remote control operated so there are no chains dangling from them. For exceptionally low ceilings, we recommend selecting a white finish because it will blend in with the ceiling and be less imposing on the room (assuming the ceiling is white). Here are links to the various Concept II fans in white:

My great room is 25x25 with a very high ceiling...and it opens to a moderate (not small) sized kitchen with an 8 or 9 ft ceiling on one side and a small entrance foyer on the other side. I am considering the Alture 68" fan...do you think this is a good choice. I need a fan with a lite kit, and a remote with reverse, as it is mounted very high. And, if so, do you sell that fan? Or one comparable to it in size and price?
Answer: "I am assuming you are referring to the Hampton Bay Altura (rather than Alture). We do not recommend Hampton Bay ceiling fans. They are mass produced in China specifically for Home Depot and do not typically meet the quality and performance requirements of fans we sell. The Altura is a good example. Although the 68" size is fine for your application, the Hampton Bay Altura does not move nearly enough air to do the job. If you look at the specs published at the Home Depot website, you will see that the fan is only capable of producing 5,125 CFM, which is extremely poor for a fan this size and does not even equal the airflow we would recommend for a small 42" or 52" fan.
A large fan of this size requires an exceptionally powerful and efficient motor in order to drive the large blades through the air. Unfortunately, such motors are more expensive and are therefore rarely used in fans sold at home centers like Home Depot. A good quality fan of this size should be producing at least 7,000 to 8,000 CFM. You will most likely be disappointed with the Hampton Bay Altura because you will almost feel no breeze. My suggestion would be to consider the 60" Emerson Carrera Grande, which moves a whopping 8,389 CFM. That is over 1 1/2 times more airflow than the Altura. Even more, it will do so without wobbling or making any noise. Here is a link: Emerson 60" Carrera Grande."

I was wondering why the DC stealth was discontinued earlier in the year. Were there problems with the fan design. I see that it is once again back on the market, but am concerned about whether I should buy a DC stealth vs. a regular one. Can you give me some insight as to why it was discontinued earlier this year. Also, when I go to the Casablanca site, they still do not have any DC stealths on their site.
Answer: "The Casablanca DC Stealth is a new introduction this year and was never discontinued. In an effort to stay ahead of the curve and be the first to introduce new products on our site, we will often times add new items before they are actually available in order to allow our customers to pre-order them so they can get in on the first shipments that arrive. In such cases, the inventory count is zero on our site, which triggers a notice that the fan is either discontinued or on backorder. Items that are on backorder will have an expected arrival date, which was the case with the DC Stealth.
The DC Stealth is in fact a fantastic product. We have experienced no problems with the fan at all, and in fact it has surpassed our original expectations and we consider it one of the best ceiling fans on the market.
As far as Casablanca not having the fan on their website, well...you would need to talk to their webmaster to find out why they are behind in updating their site this year. It is not uncommon that we show new products on our site before the manufacturers get their sites updated. These things do take a lot of time and effort, but we have been doing this since 1994, so we have a leg up on most ceiling fan websites when it comes to introducing new items."

Ceiling Fans Question
QUESTION: room is 18 ft x 28 ft. with a 14 foot vaulted ceiling. What size fan do I buy? How low from the vaulted ceiling does the fan hang? My pendant lights are black...can I use a black fan?
ANSWER: In a room this size of yours, we would most likely recommend 2 fans. Black is certainly a great option if it matches other decorative items in your room. However, there are very few black fans available today, so you may want to consider other finish options in order to dramatically expand your choices. Ultimately, the fan we recommend will be based on many factors including: style, quality, airflow and price range. For that reason, it is best to call and talk to one of our ceiling fan experts in order for us to quickly narrow down your choices over the phone.

Ceiling Fans Question
QUESTION: I have a commercial space of 2000 total square feet, but only about 1200 contiguous that needs air circulation for both heat and AC. Ceilings are 12 feet high. I'm thinking 2 fans because the only duct is basically centrally located and kicks air through 3 vents on either side and is about 12 inches from the ceiling. Would you recommend a "commercial" heat fan?! I need a recommendation and would definitely prefer something that is going to be VERY quiet, but also move the air.
ANSWER: Commercial heat fans are typically not designed for quiet operation, so I would probably make a different recommendation for a sound sensitive area. There are so many options to choose from that it is best if you call and talk to one of our ceiling fan experts to go over them with you on the phone. Please call us at: 1-800-201-1193.

QUESTION: We have a living room with walls that are about 11 feet high with a vaulted ceiling the peak of which is 16 feet above the floor. What height above the floor should the ceiling fan be mounted. We will be using it in the summer for cooling as well as in the winter to bring the warm air down. We havent decided on the fan diameter yet, probably in the 60-72" range. We will most likely be buying an Emererson Eco fan. Thanks.
I would recommend using a 6 foot downrod to bring the fan down a little less than 10 feet from the floor. A 72" Emerson Eco fan should be great for this application if the room is around 15 feet x 15 feet or more. If it is really large, over 20 feet...you should consider using 2 60" fans with 6 foot poles. Below is a link back to the Carrera Grande Eco in Antique Pewter with 72" blades. You can actually select any of the Carrera Grande Eco fans regardless of size and then change the blades that are pictured to any of the 72" blades by clicking on the orange Blades button, so you are not limited to just the brushed nickel finish to create a 72" fan.

QUESTION: can the Levon Fanimation ceiling fan be installed on a vaulted ceiling? It says it come with a 6" down rod but does not mention any other lengths.
ANSWER: The Fanimation Levon ceiling fan will hang from a vaulted ceiling angled up to 30 degrees using the standard 6" downrod and mounting hardware that is included with the fan. Additional length downrods for ceilings over 9 feet high can be found by clicking on the orange button labeled Downrods, located just beneath the main picture of the fan on the product details page. Ceilings angled more than 30 degrees up to 45 degrees require the optional Angled Ceiling Adapter Model: FA-SCB1-52, which can found by clicking on the orange Accessories button.

Ceiling Fans Question
QUESTION: Are your wet rated ceiling fans made with only either plastic or stainless steel interior parts? Could you recommend some which have this?
All outdoor wet rated ceiling fans use special components that are stainless steel or plastic...as this is a requirement in order to be UL listed for use outdoors. With that said, I cannot say that any or all of them use only stainless steel and plastic for ALL components. If corrosion is your concern, I must steer in you in the direction of the Minka Aire Concept I 58" Wet rated ceiling fan which is the first and ONLY ceiling fan where the actual motor housing is made of marine grade stainless steel. This is a new fan that will become available in March of 2014. We are very excited about this great new stainless steel outdoor fan. Each of the finishes the fan is available in are actually applied over stainless steel, so even the white and oil rubbed bronze models are stainless.

Ceiling Fans Question
QUESTION: I want to connect a Casablanca fan that takes a threaded down rod to an existing down rod that is .75" OD and is not threaded. Do you carry a coupler or adaptor that will enable me to accomplish this? Thank you.
ANSWER: There is no coupler made to connect a Casablanca ceiling fan to a non-Casablanca downrod. Casablanca does not allow this because they use their own proprietary mounting system that they have tested for safety. Using any other mounting system would void the warranty and could create an unsafe condition, particularly if the previous fan and downrod was not rated for the same weight as the Casablanca fan. You will find this the same with most of the higher quality brands.
