Casablanca builds the "world's finest ceiling fans," according to the company motto. Whether they are the finest may be a matter of opinion, but one cannot argue that Casablanca does not build high-quality ceiling fans. Casablanca ceiling fans use halogen bulbs; and a few extra precautions should be taken when changing the bulb.
Things You'll Need
- 100-watt halogen bulb
- Step ladder (optional)
Turn the light switch off before beginning. This will ensure your safety. Wait a few minutes to let the bulb cool off, if it was turned on recently. Halogen bulbs produce more heat than incandescent bulbs.
Turn the glass dome counterclockwise a few inches to move the the locking tabs away. Use a step ladder if necessary. Set the dome down in a safe place.
Twist the halogen bulb counterclockwise until it is unscrewed from the socket. Discard the bulb.
Insert the replacement halogen bulb. Hold the bulb by its base; don't hold it by the glass. Turn the bulb clockwise until it is secure.
Lift the glass dome into place. Turn the dome clockwise until the three locking tabs are aligned.
Tips & Warnings
- If you accidentally touch the bulb, clean it carefully with a tissue or soft cloth.
- Touching the glass bulb with your hands could cause it to burn out immediately.
