  2. My lovely Casablanca light and fan – only the fan works… and only on high speed. Oh, and now its developed a sort of rhythmic beat.. No light. No low speed.. no matter.. the switch doesn’t seem to be ‘clicking’.. How do I fix this problem – call an electrician? Is it an interior problem in the fan that an electrician cannot fix and would then I have to buy a replacement fixture.?

  3. My light went out instantly yesterday afternoon and the fan will not operate at all either now. When I flip the power switch on the wall on I can hear the beep coming from the fan so I know electricity is up there. But the fan will not operate nor will the light turn on.

  9. I have two fan units in adjoining rooms separated by a wall. Each unit has it own fan control. Recently, both fans react to either control, so if I turn on room A, room B starts running.

  16. I am installing a 99103 light kit on a Casablanca 6645G fan. The light kit will not come on. We have confirmed that the light kit works, but not through the fan. The fan itself is having no issues. We have done all troubleshooting that we are aware of-light bulbs, wiring, switch, etc. What other causes may there be?

  17. I have a 4988D fan/light
    The light wont work. I changed the capacitor and the light pull chain switch and new bulbs. Nothing

    Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thank You

  18. I have a new 99019 Casablanca Universal Handheld Remote that works fine then it stops working. The blue LED lights up when the remote is working but when the remote isn’t working the blue LED doesn’t light. If I remove the battery and then reinstall the battery the remote works again for awhile. Even tapping the remote has no effect. Replacing the battery with a new battery doesn’t help. I only have the fan connected to the remote, the light is directly connected to a wall switch. I have installed a few of these remotes connected this way for other people and they have worked fine for years.
