In the last 40 years, ceiling fan controls have evolved from simple pull chains to bulky clickers with basic functions to state-of-the-art wall controls packed with smart features that increase home safety and lower energy use. The Casablanca Inteli-Touch wall control, included with the Casablanca Mission ceiling fan, operates speed, direction of rotation, lighting, and more. It's also easy to install onto an existing fan. The DIY experts here at Del Mar Fans & Lighting put together a how-to video on the Casablanca Inteli-Touch wall control install that is easy to follow, whether you are a ceiling fan novice or expert.
For this video, we used a Minka Aire Inteli-Touch wall control.
8 Steps to Install Inteli-Touch Wall Control
The Casablanca Inteli-Touch controls six fan speeds, in a forward or reverse direction, and full-range light dimming to create a comfortable and well-lit environment. Many ceiling fans by Casablanca like the Stealth include the Inteli-Touch wall control. The Inteli-Touch can easily be installed into an existing switch box.
Prior to the Casablanca Inteli-Touch wall control install, turn the power off the circuit breaker box and wall switch. Then, use the steps below to complete the wall control installation:
Remove the screws and switch plate from the switch box.
Remove the screws holding the switch in the switch box.
Pull the switch from the switch box to expose wiring.
Remove the two wires from the switch box.
Connect the green ground wire from the wall control to the green ground wire in the switch box. Secure with a wire nut.
Connect the black wire and the black wire with a white strip from the wall control to the black wire in the switch box. Secure connection with a wire nut.
Tuck in the wire connections and place the wall control into the switch box.
Secure the wall control with the two long screws provided.
Install the wall plate with the screws provided.
Once the installation is complete, use the Automatic Demonstration program to test the operation of the ceiling fan. To start the demonstration program, hold the power button for 3 seconds to turn the fan off and clear the fan’s memory. Then, turn the power back on and press the following buttons in quick succession: Fan and Light, Fan and Light, and Fan. Next, the test program will automatically dim the lights and adjust the fan speed as well as direction for approximately one minute. The Automatic Demonstration program is a quick and easy way, not to mention entertaining, to confirm the ceiling fan control installation was successful. If the wall control is reversed (as in the fan button is controlling the lights and the light button is controlling the fan), turn off the power at circuit breaker and switch the two black wires. This control wil work with Casablanca fans with lights or ceiling fans without lights.
To ensure the longevity of a Casablanca ceiling fan, do not use more than one ceiling fan per wall control, and do not connect any additional devices to the circuit controlled by the ceiling fan wall control. The Casablanca Inteli-Touch wall control install makes operating your ceiling fan a breeze. This wall control offers many helpful features like Home Safe, a program that automatically turns on and off the fan’s lighting at random intervals to make a home appear occupied. The ceiling fan control also offers Fan Minder, a feature that reduces the fan speed every two hours to maintain comfort, and Light Minder, a feature that automatically turns off the fan’s light after two hours.
Which of these features would you enjoy most in your home? Let us know in the comments below.
Keyvan Geula Lmft what about how to program the remote. i am having problem with managing the speed of the fan June 13, 2014 at 5:55 pm
Del Mar Fans & Lighting Hello Keyvan,
Thanks for the great question. If you’re having trouble managing the fan speed, please follow these troubleshooting steps: 1. Replace the existing batteries, preferably with alkaline batteries; 2. Check the connectors are making good contact; 3. Verify the frequency settings (check the dip switches in the receiver and transmitter match). We hope this helps!

Tony Vitale just installed a Casablanca Isotpe Fan. It came with a remote control wall unit. Installed per the instructions and "paired" the remote to the fan by holding the power button and the 4 speed button simultaneously and remote unit worked great. However, a friend came over and quickly punched buttons on the remote randomly and now the remote unit seems to have gone stupid. Tried flipping the breaker off and then attempted to resync but doesnt work. Is there a way to clear the receiver and resync??

Del Mar Fans & Lighting Hi Tony,
We recommend changing the frequency in order to reset the fan. Use the following steps to reset the wall control:
1. Turn the power off at the circuit breaker
2. Remove the switch plate from the switch box
3. Remove the screws holding the switch in place
4. Remove the wall control from the electrical box to expose the dip switches
5. Change the dip switches as follows: 1 up, 2 down, 3 down, 4 down, 5 down, 6 up; this will ‘break’ the frequency
6. Place the wall control back into the electrical box, secure with the screws provided
7. Replace the switch plate with the screws provided
8. Turn the power on at the circuit breaker
9. Within 20 seconds of restoring power to the ceiling fan, press and hold “1” and reverse buttons for 3 seconds
10. Listen for audible tone
Once you’ve heard the audible tone, the command has been accepted and the frequency has been changed. The fan should resume normal function. We hope this helps! November 3, 2014 at 11:36 am

Pauly Zee I was wondering if you could help me, I have about a dozen Casablanca fans throughout my building and I have one that likes to act a lil funny at times. It's a Panama 5 model and once randomly completely stopped working (I suspect a tenant had a child over that was playing with the buttons on the wall) and the whole fan and light completely stopped working. 100% dead in the water. I took it apart and poked around and magically it worked again 100%. Now 2 years later I had to turn a breaker off to do some work in another part of the house and upon powering back up I again have a compeltely dead fan, no response at all except once while screwing with it the fan came on at a slow speed. This Panama 5 is being run on an Intellitouch switch. Is there a reset or somthing I can do to "reset" this fan? I have a feeling when tinkering last time I did whatever it needs done again but I don't know exactly what that was. Hopefully that makes sense and you have a suggestion, I appreciate any input. Thank you! February 12, 2015 at 9:31 pm
