Circulate All Over the Room
A Vornado circulates all the air in the room so everyone is comfortable. Air in motion feels cooler than air that is stagnant. By
providing whole room circulation, a Vornado allows you to turn
the thermostat up without sacrificing comfort.

HOW TO USE YOUR VORNADO
WHEN TO USE - SAVES ENERGY YEAR-ROUND
1
Getting Started
Position your Air Circulator so the beam of air has an unobstructed
path from one side of the room to the other.
2
Set speed to medium or low and allow a few minutes for an airflow
pattern to be established. (Different airflow patterns can be established by changing the location, angle and speed of the Air Circulator.)
Summer
Spring & Fall
Use your Air Circulator with your home’s air conditioning system to create
brisk, comforting air movement. This breeze will eliminate stagnant air and
remove body heat to make you feel cooler.
Your Air Circulator can make the indoors as fresh and pleasant as the outdoors.
Place the Air Circulator near an open window, sliding door or French door to
take full advantage of mild temperatures and seasonal breezes.
With Vornado Air Circulators, you can save money on energy bills by raising
your thermostat several degrees and still maintaining the same comfort level.

Adjust the speed accordingly until a desired comfort level is
achieved. Once you discover the added comfort of air circulation,
you will use your Vornado Air Circulator season after season.
Winter
Position your Air Circulator in a place with unobstructed upward air movement.
Run it only as fast as necessary to lower the heated air from the ceiling – but
not fast enough to create a draft. Or, use your Air Circulator with other available heat sources (furnace vents, wood stoves or baseboard heaters) to circulate their warmth, taking full advantage of all available heat in the room. Do
not point the Air Circulator at open flames.

GRILL REMOVAL
BLADE REMOVAL
WARNING: To avoid risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, unplug
the Air Circulator before removing the grill.
WARNING: To avoid risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons, make
sure the Air Circulator is still unplugged before removing the blade.
To protect paint, apply masking tape over the head of a flat screwdriver and
up to about 2 inches on the screwdriver shaft. Place flat screwdriver against the
angled section of the grill support tab, (as shown) and press outward to allow
the grill wire to be released from the support tab. Repeat on second and third
grill support tab. To reinstall, relocate grill wire ends into the support tabs,
use the flat screwdriver to flex back the support tabs to allow grill to snap into
place. Be sure all three grill wire ends are engaged.
It is possible to remove the blade should something
accidentally get wrapped around the motor shaft.
VFAN JR: Once the grill is removed (see GRILL
REMOVAL section) pull the blade straight out from
the shaft (Fig. 1). When replacing, the blade can
only go on the shaft one way. Push the blade all the
way on the shaft until it bottoms out. Do not use a
hammer as this could result in bearing damage.
VFAN & VFAN SR: Once the
grill is removed (see GRILL
REMOVAL section) unscrew the
Blade Cap clockwise (Fig. 2).
Then pull the blade straight out
from the shaft (Fig. 3). When replacing, the blade can only go
on the shaft one way. Push the
blade all the way on the shaft
until it bottoms out. Do not use
a hammer as this could result in
bearing damage. Replace the
Blade Cap.

CLEANING
TROUBLESHOOTING
Because your Air Circulator moves a substantial amount of air, it will need
regular cleaning. To avoid risk of fire, electrical shock, or injury to persons,
unplug the unit before any cleaning activity.

The motor is permanently lubricated and requires no oiling.
UNIT FAILS TO
POWER ON
Possible Cause and Solution
Unit is not plugged in. Plug Power Cord into electrical
outlet.
Ensure unit fan speed setting is selected.
Plug fuse has blown. Replace fuse (See USER SERVICING
INSTRUCTIONS on page 5).
To clean motor cap and inlet ribs: Use a common household vacuum. Do not use water to
clean these parts of the Air Circulator.

unplug. Contact Consumer Service for assistance.
To clean grill: Remove grill (See GRILL REMOVAL instructions) and dust or wash with a
mild dishwashing soap. Do not place grill in the

plating.
To clean blade: Wipe with a damp cloth. If
your Air Circulator is used in a greasy environment, such as a kitchen, mild soap or a common
household cleaner may be necessary. Do not use
solvents.
The outlet is worn or damaged. Try another outlet or
contact a qualified electrician.
AIRFLOW IS
