• 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.
The light pull chain controls the power to the light fixture.
• The chain has two settings: ON and OFF.
Caring for finishes:
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.
Troubleshooting
Problem: Nothing happens; fan does not move.
1. Turn power on, replace fuse, or reset breaker.
2. Loosen canopy, check all connections according to the wiring the
fan section.
3. Check the plug connection in the switch housing.
4. Push motor reversing switch firmly left or right to ensure that the
switch is engaged.
5. Pull the pull chain to ensure it is on.
6. Remove the shipping bumpers.
Problem: Noisy operation
1. Tighten the blade assembly screws and blade iron armature screws
until snug.
2. Check to see if the blade is cracked. If so, replace all the blades.
Caring for blades:
Note: Be careful to not bend the blades when cleaning.
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.
Problem: Excessive wobbling
1. If your fan wobbles when operating, use the enclosed balancing
kit and instructions to balance the fan.
2. Tighten all blade iron screws.
3. Turn power off, support fan very carefully, and check that the
hanger ball is properly seated.
Problem: Lights turn off when installed or dim when turned on
1. Check to make sure the wattage and type of light bulbs installed
match the specifications on the light socket.
Problem: Lights shut off suddenly
1. Turn the power to the fan off at the wall switch. Wait 30
seconds, then resume power to the fan.If you have tried these

Airflow Direction
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.
