Installing Your Hunter
Ceiling Fan
WARNINGS
• To avoid possible electrical shock, before
wiring fan, disconnect power by turning off the circuit breakers both to the
outlet box and to its 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.
Note To Installers: Please leave this manual
with the home owner.
Tools needed:
• Pliers
• 3/8" Socket Wrench
• 11/64" drill bit
• Flat blade screwdriver
• Electric drill
• Phillips screwdriver
• 4" x 1-1/2" standard octagon electrical box
Step 1: Pre-Installation
• All wiring must be in accordance with
national and local electrical codes. If you
are unfamiliar with wiring, you should
use a qualified electrician.
1. Select the installation site: Normally this is near
the center of the room, often replacing a light
fixture. Make certain that ample clearance is
left for the rotating fan blades. For maximum
efficiency, no obstructions (walls, posts, etc.)
should be within 24" of the tips of the blades.
See Figure 1.
NOTE: Mounting should also meet the
precautions listed in Step 3.
• To reduce the risk of personal injury, install the fan only to the building structure according to these instructions and
use only the hardware supplied.
CAUTIONS
• NEVER REST THE FAN ON THE SWITCH
HOUSING. As you prepare the fan for
installation, rest the motor in the liner in
which it was packed.

• If this fan is used as a replacement for an
Original Old-Tyme nonreversible fan, it
must be installed per the instructions included with this fan. DO NOT HANG THIS
FAN ON A SINGLE “J” HOOK. Failure to
do so could result in the fan falling.
Figure 1
2. Fan mounting height: Your Hunter fan comes
with the proper hardware to hang the fan from
a standard 8 foot ceiling so that the fan blades
will be 12" from the ceiling and approximately
7 feet from the floor. See Figure 1.
NOTE: On Vaulted ceilings, up to 45° pitch, you
must use the Hunter Vaulted Ceiling Mounting Kit.
• To reduce the risk of noise and to ensure
proper fan operation, do not use a solidstate speed control with this fan. Use
Hunter speed controls for Hunter Originals only.

• For concrete mounting, the drilled hole must
be recommended by the manufacturer of the
anchor and it must be drilled at least 1/2"
deeper than the length of the anchor.
1. Take the hanger bracket from the sack parts and
locate the pipe nipple. Feed the wires from the
top of your motor through the pipe.
2. Back out the set screw in the neck of the motor
housing and the hanger bracket so the pipe
can be screwed in. Screw the pipe into the fan
until tight (At least 4-1/2 turns). Feed the wire
through the hanger bracket and screw the
hanger bracket onto the pipe until tight (At least
3 turns). Then use pliers to tighten both the
hanger bracket and the pipe together. Tighten
the set screw in the motor housing with pliers.
Securely tighten the set screw in the hanger
bracket. See Figure 8.
NOTE: The drilled hole is usually marked on
the anchor.
• The holes must be made with a suitable carbide-tipped masonry drill bit.
• The anchors must be new and unused.
• The concrete ceiling must be sound and free
of cracks or voids in the vicinity of the mounting holes.
• The anchors must be set in flush with the surface of the concrete. See figure 7.
• The bracket screws must never be backed out.
If the bracket screws can be turned easily (by
hand), do not hang the fan.

Step 5: Wiring Instructions and
Canopy Installation
Step 6: Lubrication
1. Your fan has been shipped without oil in the
motor. A tube of high grade SAE 10 non-detergent oil is packed in the sack parts.
CAUTION: BE CERTAIN THAT ELECTRICITY IS
TURNED OFF AT THE MAIN PANEL BEFORE ANY
WIRING IS DONE.
2. Unscrew the oil hole screw on the side of the
switch housing. See Figure 12.
NOTE: Before you do the final wiring, you should
decide how you want to control your fan - with a
pull cord, a wall switch or a speed control. At this
point, you should also decide if you want to add
a light adapter kit. Separate wiring instructions
for Hunter accessories are included in the
accessory packages.
3. Cut the tip off the tube, tilt the fan motor as
shown and place the tube into the oil hole of
the switch housing. See Figure 13.
NOTE: It may be necessary to puncture the tube
to allow air in.
4. Fill the oil until the oil just starts pouring out of
the oil hole. This is the indication that the oil
tank is now filled.
• All wiring must be in accordance with national
and local electrical codes. If you are unfamiliar
with wiring, you should use a qualified electrician.
1. Connect the black electrical supply lead to the
black motor lead and the black with white stripe
motor lead. (See Note below.)
Figure 12
2. Connect the white electrical supply lead to the
white motor lead.
3. Connect the ground wire to the green screw on
the side of the hanger bracket. See Figure 11.
NOTE: If a separate wall switch will be used to
control a lighting accessory, connect the black
wire with the white stripe to the wall switch lead,
following the wiring instructions included with the
accessory. The wall switch must be a listed generaluse switch.

Figure 11
Your Original Hunter’s Unique
Lubricating System
The bearings are submerged in a bath of oil. The
oil moves up a spiral groove in the shaft,
lubricating all bearing surfaces as the fan operates.
This Lubrication System does not normally “use
up” or require the addition of extra oil once the
oil reservoir has been filled to the correct level.
This unique lubrication system is one reason your
Original Hunter Ceiling Fan will last a lifetime. It
is highly unlikely that you will ever need to add
oil to you Original fan once it is installed. Should
you move you fan to another location, it is a good
idea to check the oil reservoir. Hunter has
developed an accessory “Original Relocation Kit”
CAUTION: NO BARE WIRE OR WIRE STRANDS
SHOULD BE VISIBLE AFTER MAKING
CONNECTIONS.
4. After making the wire connections, the wires
should be spread apart with the white and
green wires on one side of the outlet box, and
the black and black with white stripe wires on
the other side of the box.
5. The splices should be turned upward and
pushed carefully up into the outlet box.

or blade irons bent, do not attempt to repair them.
Order replacement parts from your Hunter dealer.
Step 8: Operation of Your
Hunter Fan
The Inside Story
Oil is constantly pumped up the spiral groove to
lubricate the rotor and the shaft. The oil is returned
to the reservoir where the bearings are submerged
in a bath of oil. This unique lubrication system is built
into all Original Hunter Ceiling Fans. That’s one reason
Hunters last so long. And why we can offer a Limited
Lifetime Warranty.
1. The operation of your fan is controlled with a
pull-chain switch, which has four (4) positions:
Off — High — Medium — Low. Pull the chain
gently to obtain the speed you desire.
2. The Break-A-Way Connector is designed to
separate from the chain at a predetermined
force. If this separation occurs, simply reinsert
the connector. It can be used again and again.
See Figure 19.
We appreciate the opportunity to supply you with
the best ceiling fan available anywhere in the
world.
Record the following information for your records
and warranty assistance. Please refer to the carton
and the Hunter nameplate (located on the top
outside fan motor housing) for the proper
information.
Figure 19
Model Name ______________________________
Catalog No. _______________________________
3. Reversing your fan is controlled by a small
switch located on the switch housing. See Figure 20.
NOTE: Ceiling fans are usually adjusted once in
the fall and again in the spring to blow upward in
the winter and downward in the summer. You may
run them in either direction at anytime, however,
as you prefer. Experiment as you like to obtain
maximum comfort from your fan.

Care and Maintenance
Once properly installed, your fan needs little
attention, beyond checking the oil level. Oil is
checked with a pip cleaner used as a dipstick. See
Step 6. Take care when cleaning your fan. Never
use an abrasive cleanser or brass polish. Use a
damp cloth or sponge. Do not drip water or soap
into the motor. Blades should be wiped clean
periodically to prevent dust buildup. Be careful
not to bend the blade irons. If blades are cracked
