8 • Operating and Cleaning Your Ceiling Fan
8-1. Turn on electrical power to the fan.
8-2. 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.
8-3. The light pull chain controls power to the light. The pull chain has
two settings: On and Off.
In warm weather, use
downward air flow pattern
8-4. 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.
8-5. The blades on this fan have been treated with Hunter’s Dust
Armor protection, making the blades less likely to attract dust and
dirt. Use a dry or slightly damp lint free cloth to clean the blades.
Do not use a furniture polish or any other cleaners that leave any
residue, as they will damage the protective Dust Armor on the
blades.
8-6. 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
