70-1993), including fire-rated construction.
2. Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacurer. If you have any questions contact the manufacturer.
3. After making the wire connections, the wires should be spread apart with the grounded conductor and the equipment-grounding conductor
on one side of the outlet box and ungrounded conductor on the other side of the outlet box.
4. Before you begin installing the fan, Switch power off at Service panel and lock service disconnecting means to prevent power from being
switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a
tag, to the service panel.
5. Be cautious! read all instructions and safety information before installing your new fan. Review the accompanying assembly diagrams.
6. When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
7. Make sure the installation site you choose allows the fan blades to rotate without any obstructions. Allow a minimum clearance of 7 feet
from the floor to the trailing edge of the blade.
8. To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury, mount to outlet box or supporting system acceptable for fan support.
(Mounting must support at least 35 lbs.)
9. Do not bend blade holders during installation to motor, balancing or during cleaning. Do not insert foreign object between rotating blades.
10. Attach the mounting bracket using only the hardware supplied with the outlet box.
11. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use this fan with any solid state fan speed control device, or variable speed control.
12. If this unit is to be installed over a tub or shower, it must be marked as appropriate for the application.
13. NEVER place a switch where it can be reached from a tub or shower.
14. The combustion airflow needed for safe operation of fuel-burning equipment may be affected by this unit’s operation. Follow the heating
equipment manufacturer’s guideline safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NEPA), and the
15. American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the local code authorities.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
If you have difficulty operating your new ceiling fan, it may be the result of incorrect assembly, installation, or wiring. In some cases, these installation
errors may be mistaken for defects. If you experience any faults, please check this Trouble Shooting Chart. If a problem cannot be remedied, or you
are experiencing difficulty in installation, please call our Customer Service Center at the number printed on your parts list insert sheet.
Warning: Before servicing or cleaning unit, Switch power off at Service panel and lock service disconnecting means to prevent power from being
switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag,
to the service panel.
TROUBLE
1. If fan does not start:
SUGGESTED REMEDY
1. Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is turned off.
2. If fan sounds noisy:
1. Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over tightened).
2. Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan blade holder to the motor are tight.
3. Check to make sure wire nut connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or
against the interior wall of the switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is turned off before entering switch housing.
4. If using an optional Ceiling Fan Light Kit, check to be sure the screws securing the glassware are
finger tight. Check to be sure light bulb is tight in socket and not touching glass shade(s). If
vibration persists from glass, remove glass and install a 1/4" wide rubber band on glass neck to
act as an insulator. Replace glass and tighten screws against rubber band.
5. Some fan motors are sensitive to signals from Solid State variable speed controls. DO NOT USE a
Solid State variable speed control.
6. Allow "break-in" period of 24 hours. Most noises associated with a new fan will disappear after this
period.
3. If fan wobbles:
1. Make sure that the ridge of the canopy engages the notch in the downrod ball. (See illustration in
Step #6 of Downrod Mount installation).
2. Check that all blades are screwed firmly into blade holders.
3. Check that all blade holders are tightened securely to motor.

Blade Brackets
Blade Tip Up:
4. Make sure that canopy and mounting bracket are tightened securely to ceiling junction box and
junction box is mounted firmly to ceiling joist.
5. Most fan wobble problems are caused when blade levels are unequal. Check this level by selecting
a point on the ceiling above the tip of one of the blades. Measure this distance as shown in Figure
1. Keeping measure within 1/8", rotate the fan until the next blade is positioned for measurement.
Repeat for each blade. If all blade levels are not equal, you can adjust blade levels by the following
procedure. To adjust a blade tip down, insert a washer (not supplied) between the blade and blade
holder at the screw closest to the motor (Figure 2). To adjust a blade tip up, insert washer (not
supplied) between the blade and blade holder at the two screws farthest from the motor (Figure
2).

6. If blade wobble is still noticeable, interchanging two adjacent (side by side) blades can redistribute
the weight and possibly result in smoother operation.
4. If light does not work:
1. Check blue wire from fan to make sure it is connected to hot wire from house.
2. Check for loose or disconnected wires in fan switch housing.
3. Check for loose or disconnected wires in light kit.
4. Check for faulty light bulbs.
