of three ways, depending on ceiling height and your preference: Low
Profile, Standard, or Angled mounting. The steps in this manual include
instructions for all three Installer’s Choice mounting methods.
Considering Optional Accessories
Consider using Hunter’s optional accessories, including a wall-mounted
or remote speed control. To install and use the accessories, follow
the instructions included with each product. For quiet and optimum
performance of your Hunter fan, use only Hunter speed controls.
Standard Mounting hangs from the
ceiling by a downrod (included).
For ceilings higher than 8 feet, you can purchase

2 • Installing the Ceiling Plate
CAUTION: To avoid possible electrical shock, before installing your fan,
disconnect the power by turning off the circuit breakers to the outlet box
and associated wall switch location. If you cannot lock the circuit breakers
in the off position, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a
tag, to the service panel.
2-1. Drill two pilot holes into the wood support structure through the
outermost holes in the outlet box. The pilot holes should be 9/64”
in diameter.
For Angled Ceilings: Be sure to orient the ceiling plate so that the
two tabs are pointing toward the ceiling peak.
2-2. Your fan comes with four preinstalled noise isolators. Check to
make sure all four isolators are in place and were not removed
during shipment.
2-3. Place a flat washer on each of the two 3” wood screws.
2-4. Thread the supply wires from the outlet box in the ceiling through
the hole in the center of the ceiling plate.
2-5. Align the slotted holes in the ceiling plate with the pilot holes you
drilled in the wood support structure. For proper alignment use
slotted holes directly across from each other.
Note: The isolators should be flush against the ceiling.
2-6. Pass the screws through the slotted holes in the ceiling plate into
the pilot holes you drilled.
Tighten the screws into the 9/64” pilot holes; do not use lubricants

Step 8-20
9 • Operating and Cleaning Your Ceiling Fan
9-1. Turn on electrical power to the fan.
9-2. The fan pull chain controls power to the fan. The pull chain has
four settings in sequence: High, Medium, Low and Off.
• Pull the chain slowly to change settings.
• Release slowly to prevent the chain from recoiling into the
blades.
• The chain uses a breakaway connector that separates if the
chain is jerked. If this happens, simply reinsert the chain into
the connector.
9-3. The light pull chain controls the power to the light fixture. The
chain has two settings: ON and OFF.
In warm weather, use
downward air flow pattern
9-4. Ceiling fans work best by blowing air downward (counterclockwise
blade rotation) in warm weather to cool the room with a direct
breeze. In winter, having the fan draw air upward (clockwise blade
rotation) will distribute the warmer air trapped at the ceiling
around the room without causing a draft.
9-5. For cleaning finishes, use a soft brush or lint-free cloth to prevent
scratching. A vacuum cleaner brush nozzle can remove heavier
dust. Remove surface smudges or accumulated dirt and dust using
a mild detergent and a slightly dampened cloth. You may use
an artistic agent, but never abrasive cleaning agents as they will
damage the finish.
9-6. Clean wood finish blades with a furniture polishing cloth.
Occasionally, apply a light coat of furniture polish for added
protection and beauty. Clean painted and high-gloss blades in the
same manner as the fan finish.
To Change Airflow Direction
Turn the fan off and let it come to a complete
stop. Slide the reversing switch on the fan to the
opposite position. Restart fan.
