  • CEILING FAN CARE & MAINTENANCE: HIGH SPEED CONDITIONING

    CEILING FAN CARE & MAINTENANCE: HIGH SPEED CONDITIONING

    CEILING FAN CARE TIP:

    High Speed Conditioning

    There are two kinds of ceiling fan motors; standard and DC (direct current) motors. For standard motors, high speed conditioning will break-in the ceiling fan and prevent developing a hum or other motor noise. A ceiling fan with a DC motor must be conditioned because it has to calibrate itself for the weight of the blades, which will ensure that it runs smoothly. The other day, as we were assembling the new, highly stylish, and impressively functional Emerson CF550 Luxe Eco fan (pictured above), we ran into a day glow yellow tag on the motor. The tag is placed on the fan motor in a clearly visible position. However, there are still a few consumers who miss it or leave the installation to a handyman who claims that he has “installed thousands of ceiling fans” and deems the steps on the tag unnecessary. The Tag on the Ceiling Fan Motor Reads: DO NOT SKIP THIS STEP!! This product requires High Speed Conditioning in order to function properly. Perform this function immediately after Setting Operating Frequency of remote or wall control. See High Speed Conditioning section in the Owner’s Manual for detailed instructions.

    Follow These Steps to High Speed Condition your Ceiling Fan:

    1. There are two buttons that control the fan speeds on your remote or wall control. One has an up arrow and the other has a down arrow. Press the up arrow until all 6 led lights (speed indicators) on the remote or wall control are lit. This indicates that the fan is in high speed.
    2. Let the fan operate on high speed for at least 2 minutes without interruption.
    3. After at least 2 minutes, press the reverse button and allow the fan to operate uninterrupted for at least two minutes in HIGH SPEED. High speed is the key here.
    4. High Speed Conditioning is now complete.

    Skipping these steps will lead to a ceiling fan that runs erratically because it wasn't broken in properly. Although the steps above are for the Emerson DC fans, you can apply this to any fan with a DC motor and it will help to insure that you have years of uninterrupted performance.

  • WALL REMOTES FOR CASABLANCA DC FANS

    WALL REMOTES FOR CASABLANCA DC FANS

    THE BEST CEILING FANS ON THE MARKET

    Although the Casablanca Fans were a little behind the curve in adopting the use of the new, ultra efficient DC motor, they now have three of the best DC motor ceiling fans on the market. The Casablanca Panama, Stealth and Holliston fans now have am energy-efficient DC motor version. We already thought the Stealth and the Panama were two of the best ceiling fans on the market – with the addition of DC motors, they just got a little better.

     

    Why didn’t we include Holliston in the “best ceiling fans” call out? It’s a good fan and we recommend it, but the quality of the ceiling fan blades isn’t as great. The DC-motored version of the Holliston also does not come with an uplight whereas the non-DC motor Holliston does.

    WALL REMOTES FOR CASABLANCA FANS WITH DC MOTORS – THE TRICK

    The Casablanca Panama DC, Stealth DC and Holliston DC fans all come with a hand held remote but Casablanca doesn’t make wall controls for these fans. Fear not! Fanimation actually has the solution for you. The Fanimation TW30WH, TW30LA, TW32WH and TW32LA are all hard-wired wall controls that are made to operate with their line of DC motor ceiling fans. One of our favorite DC motored ceiling fans is the Landon (FDP808BA and FDP8087SN). It’s nicely styled, and not only does it have the ultra-efficient DC motor, it also uses LEDs as the primary light.

     

    In our Fan Diego showrooms, we use the Fanimation TW30WH to operate our Casablanca Stealth DC and Casablanca Panama DC models and they work very well together. The Fanimation TW32WH/TW32LA models are made for celling fans that have both an uplight and a downlight, so it has a dimmer for both built into the switch.

    MIXING CEILING FANS WITH REMOTES: A WARNING

    Although these products do work well together, the manufacturers may not like that you are using them together, so you may find it difficult to get support from them should have any technical difficulty and they will most likely deem your warranty voided due to use with another manufacturer’s product. Talk to one of our friendly showroom staff or contact us if you have any questions about using wall remotes for your DC-motored Casablanca fans.
