10 • Operating and Cleaning Your Ceiling Fan
10-1. Turn on electrical power to the fan.
10-2. 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.
10-3. The light pull chain controls the power to the light fixture. The chain
has two settings: ON and OFF.
10-4. 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.
In warm weather, use
downward air flow pattern
10-5. 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.
10-6. 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.
In cold weather, use upward
air flow pattern
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.
