To begin with, the site of installation must be clear of any obstructions. Walls,
cabinet or cupboard doors, and AC/heating vents (strong air currents will cause
fan to wobble ) are common obstructions.
Also, you will need a securely mounted outlet box that is listed for fan support.
The only tools you will need are: A medium Phillips screwdriver, wire
cutter/stripper, common sense, and a little caution.
I. Inventory the parts
A. Remove all of the parts from the top styrofoam and remove the styrofoam.

C. Place the motor (with the bottom cup mounting plate down) in the top
styrofoam. Loosen the two set screws in the coupler (Fig. 1). If you
are replacing the downrod with a longer one, now is the time to do so.
FIG. 3
D. Feed the wires through the yoke cover, canopy and downrod. Seat the
downrod into the yoke with the holes in each aligned. Insert the clevis pin, and
secure with the washer and safety clip (Fig. 2) Tighten the coupler set screws
against the downrod. Slide the yoke cover down to cover the yoke.
E. At this time you may want to shorten the wires from the fan
to 6" from the ball. This helps when you tuck the wires into
outlet box.
F. Snap the Blade Arm onto the Blade's face that you want to
show. Using four (4) screws and washers per blade, attach
the blade securely to the Blade Arm. Repeat until all five
Blades are assembled onto Blade Arms. (Fig 5)

WARNING - To Reduce The Risk Of Fire, Electric Shock, Or Personal
Injury Mount Fan To An Outlet Box Marked "Acceptable For Fan
Support" And Use The Mounting Screws Provided With The Outlet Box.
For the future connection of the safety cable, partially install 1 wood screw, 1 flat washer and 1 spring
washer, leaving 1/8" to 1/4" exposed. Position this screw where it will be covered by the canopy, will
not interfere with the hanging bracket, and is secured into a wood support member. Inside of outlet
box is a common place. See Fig 6.
F. Remove one canopy screw and loosen the other. Take the hanging
bracket and secure it to the outlet box (marked Acceptable For Fan
Support) using the mounting screws provided with the outlet box (Fig 6).
Tighten them evenly. If you are mounting the fan directly to the building
structure, use the wood screws provided, and secure to a joist. Make sure
all of the wires are accessible and are not being pinched. Also, make sure
the bracket doesn't wobble.

III. Hanging the Fan
FIG. 7
Holding the fan firmly, carefully lift it up to hanging bracket. Place
the ball into cradle of the bracket. Turn the entire motor assembly
until it locks into place. The tab on the bracket must be in the groove
in the ball. Make sure the wires are not being pinched. Also Fig 7.
IV. Wire connections
This fan includes a remote control, and requires basic mains wiring. Keep in mind, the supply wire
colors may vary. (The wire colors in parentheses are commonly found in existing structures.)
Use the large orange wirenuts to make the connections.

Now tuck the wires and wirenuts carefully into outlet box. Make sure wirenuts remain tightly on connections.
CANOPY
V.
With the motor in place and the wires out of the way, slide the
canopy up to the hanging bracket. The canopy screw in the bracket
will come through the large end of the key slot in the canopy. Fig. 9.
Turn the canopy slightly, counter-clockwise, to hold in place, and
insert remaining canopy screw. Tighten the screws.
VI. The next step is to mount the blade assemblies on the motor. Rotate
the motor face so that two empty screw holes align with the cut-outs
on the bottom cup mounting plate. Insert one motor screw into one of
the holes in a blade arm's base. Holding the blade assembly in one
hand, place screwdriver tip into screw head to keep screw held in. Lift
blade assembly into place, and screw it into the appropriate hole in the
motor. Fig 10. Now insert another screw into the other hole and
tighten both screws. Repeat this with the rest of the blade assemblies,
and retighten all of the screws.
VII. The final assembly is attaching the bottom cup and it's
easy. If you are adding a light kit, now is the time to attach
it to the switch cup. Lift the cup into place, aligning the
three screw holes in the cup with those on the mounting
plate. Insert one of the screws removed earlier and
thread into switch cup plate. Insert the remaining switch
cup screws and tighten all. Fig. 11.

recommended for best efficiency and for summertime. Clockwise rotation gives upward airflow for
gentle circulation suitable for winter.
