Electrical Question from Richard about Ceiling Fan Wiring and Replacing Casablanca Ceiling Fans
Received from Richard a Homeowner in Ovilla, Texas
[ad#block]Question: I am replacing current ceiling fans with 3 speed with double switches in the wall. One for fan, One for light. The older fan is a variable Casablanca with a light kit. One switches from the wall works fan and light, the other is dead. What is wrong? I want one switch to work light and one for fan. Thank you. Richard.
Thanks for your electrical question.
Richard you will not be able to use the Casablanca wall switch to control a non-Casablanca ceiling fan. The Casablanca ceiling fans and Casablanca wall switches have a unique system that is not compatible with other fan units.Â You will need to purchase a new remote control module kit to retrofit your new fans. This kit will include a receiver module to install up at the ceiling fan and a transmitter wall switch or hand held remote control. Make sure to set the dip switch codes differently for each fan remote unit.
