Installation
CAUTIONS AND WARNINGS
Read and understand these instructions before installing and retain them for future reference.
FOR CEILING FANS ONLY
FanLinc is intended for installation in accordance with the National Electric Code and local regulations in the United States or the
Canadian Electrical Code and local regulations in Canada. Use indoors only. FanLinc is not designed nor approved for use on
power lines other than 120VAC, 50Hz / 60Hz, single phase. Attempting to use FanLinc on non-approved power lines may have
hazardous consequences.
Recommended installation practices:
•
Use only indoors or in an outdoor rated box
•
Be sure that you have turned off the circuit breaker or removed the fuse for the circuit you are installing FanLinc in.
Installing FanLinc with the power on will expose you to dangerous voltages.
•
Connect only copper or copper-clad wire to FanLinc
•
FanLinc may feel warm during operation. The amount of heat generated is within approved limits and poses no
hazards. To minimize heat buildup, ensure that the area surrounding the FanLinc air vents is as clear of clutter as
possible.
•
To reduce the risk of overheating and possible damage to other equipment, use FanLinc load output to control no more
than 300 watts of 120VAC incandescent lamps plus no more than 1 Amp of Fan load. Dimming an inductive load (by
connecting to the light load wire), such as a fan or transformer, could cause damage to the dimmer, the load bearing
device, or both. If the manufacturer of the load device does not recommend dimming, use a non-dimming INSTEON
on/off switch. USER ASSUMES ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH DIMMING AN INDUCTIVE LOAD.
•
You will need a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips head screwdriver and a voltage meter to install FanLinc
Identifying the Electrical Wires in your Home
To install FanLinc, you will need to identify the following four wires:
•
Line - usually black, may also be called HOT or LIVE, carries 120VAC electricity into the electrical box
•
Neutral - usually white commonly daisy chained from box to box usually appearing as a white wire bundle
•
Load – usually black, blue or red
•
Ground - Bare copper wire or metal fixture (if grounded)
If you are having difficulties identifying wires, consult an electrician to help you.
IMPORTANT!
•
If you have any difficulties or questions, consult an electrician. If you are not knowledgeable about, and
comfortable with electrical circuitry, you should have a qualified electrician install the product for you.
1) Write down the INSTEON ID (e.g., 12.34.56) for reference
2) Using your ceiling fan pull chains, set fan to highest speed and
turn light on (note: once installed, FanLinc will control all fan and
light functions)
3) Turn off the breaker (remove fuse) supplying power to the fan
4) Remove the ceiling fan from the electrical box
5) Identify line, neutral and load lines for fan and light separately
6) Disconnect wires from the ceiling fan (and light if applicable)
7) Connect FanLinc white wire and the fixture neutral wire to the
house neutral with wire nut
8) Connect FanLinc red wire to the fixture fan wire with a wire nut
9) Connect FanLinc blue wire to the fixture light wire (if fixture does
not have a light, cap the blue wire)
10) Connect FanLinc black wire to line with a wire nut
11) Ensure all connections are secure with no exposed copper
12) Turn breaker back on

i. Optional: test by tapping set button a few times
Light will toggle between green (on) and red (off)
ii. Optional: cover LEDs with black electrical tape to avoid unwanted LED glow at night
which may be visible with some fan cowlings
13) While software is highly recommended to manage this hidden device, if you wish to set up any
scenes in FanLinc using the set buttons, it is critical that you do so now. See “INSTEON scenes”
14) Carefully remount cowling with FanLinc inside (or in electrical box). Use cable tie (included) to secure
FanLinc to fan bracket. Align cable tie with the notch on the FanLinc case ensuring that cable tie and
wires will not interfere with any moving parts.
INSTEON Setup
INSTEON remote control is done using scenes. Scenes allow you to instantly “recall” favorite lighting and
appliance settings at the touch of a button (or in response to central control or even a sensor). Each
scene has at least one controller and at least one responder. Simple scenes can be setup using the
instructions below.
Make Fan an INSTEON Responder
Follow the steps below to add your ceiling fan to an INSTEON scene.
1) Tap FanLinc Fan set button until FanLinc beeper & LED indicate the desired fan speed

Adjusting on-Level:
a. Using your scene controller, adjust the ceiling fan light brightness to the desired
brightness for your scene
b. Repeat Steps #1 and #3 above
Adjusting Ramp Rate:
a. Using your scene controller, adjust the light brightness to correspond with the Ramp Rate
desired (Brighter = Faster, Dimmer = Slower)
b. Double-tap FanLinc light set button
c. Repeat Steps #1 and #3 above
6) If you wish to add FanLinc light to more scenes, simply repeat these steps
Remove FanLinc from a Scene as a Responder
Software is recommended.
Note: If you choose to remove FanLinc from use, it is important that you remove scene memberships
from all controllers. Otherwise, controllers will retry commands repetitively, creating network delays.
Follow the instructions below for each scene controller that FanLinc is a member of.
If you have both fan and light links, removing one will also remove the other. If you’d like to continue using
the other link, you’ll need to re-create it.
For simplicity sake, the steps below do not cover the removal or re-installation of the ceiling fan.
1) Use pull chain to turn fan motor off
2) Tap controller scene button

Advanced Features
Software Only Settings
The following settings are available for programming only via compatible software (i.e. HouseLinc):
• Enable/Disable LEDs
• LED Blink on traffic
• Programming Lock
Using FanLinc as a Phase Bridge
FanLinc automatically bridges the electrical phases in your home (via communications with other dualband devices on the “other phase”). This is only important if you have powerline only INSTEON products
in your home. If you are relying on FanLinc to bridge the electrical phases, use the following procedure to
confirm bridging:
1) Tap FanLinc light set button four times quickly
FanLinc will start (beeping) once per second
FanLinc light LED will turn green
2) Check the LED behavior of other dual-band devices
•
If the “other” dual-band device is blinking green, it is on the other phase
Device provides a phase bridge to FanLinc
•
If the “other” dual-band device is blinking red, it is on the same phase
Device does not provide a phase bridge to FanLinc
Relocate if necessary (and practical)
•
If the “other” dual-band device is not blinking
Device not within RF range of FanLinc

Troubleshooting
Problem
FanLinc won’t add as a
Scene responder
Possible Cause
FanLinc may be out of range
Try moving an Access Point or installing other DualBand devices closer to FanLinc
The INSTEON signal may not be
getting to the “vicinity” of responder
Make sure phases are bridged, add additional
INSTEON devices and/or move around existing
INSTEON devices
Large appliances, such as refrigerators
or air conditioners, may be producing
electrical noise on the power line
Other electrical devices, such as
computers, televisions, or power strips,
may be absorbing the INSTEON signal
FanLinc will not turn on
light
FanLinc is taking a long
time to respond to scene
triggers
Page 10 of 12
Solution
Install a power line noise filter (e.g. #1626-10) to
filter electrical noise and minimize signal attenuation
Ramp Rate may be extremely slow
Add to scene again, with faster Ramp Rate
Pull chain on fan light is not in “ON”
position
Use pull chain to turn light on
Controller may be added to scene in off
Add to scene again, at desired brightness
state
Burned out bulbs
Change bulbs
Loose connection
Turn power off to fan assembly and recheck all
connections
Controller may be sending commands
to a another responder(s) that is no
longer in use
Remove all unused responders from the controller.
HINT: If you are using HouseLinc software, you can
easily check scene Membership and eliminate any
unnecessary
See Problem #1
If the above doesn’t work, perform a factory reset
on the controller
2475F - Rev: 2/20/2014 8:33 AM
Pull chain on fan is not set to HIGH
Use pull chain to set fan to highest speed setting
Scene speed was added on slow
Remove from scene and re-add at higher speed
The light dimming component inside
FanLinc “chops” the power line sine
wave to reduce the power.
The bulb filaments are vibrating. Use rough-service,
130 Volt, or appliance-grade bulbs to reduce the
noise.
Fan speed is too slow or
does not turn on
The light is buzzing when
on or dim.
Power cycle: Turn appropriate circuit breaker off,
wait 10 seconds and turn back on
FanLinc is no longer
responding.
Small electrical surge or voltage spike
Perform a factory reset on FanLinc and set up
scenes again
