Installation Instructions for Hunter Original Ceiling Fans IMPORTANT! Read and save these instructions! • Do not use an abrasive cleaner on the fan. A mild detergent will clean and restore most units to their original beauty. Read this entire manual thoroughly before beginning installation. 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. 24" Minimum Clearance • Be sure to put full contents of the oil tube into the fan according to the instructions. 8" Minimum to 7’ Minimum Ceiling Clearance To Floor • 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. 41569-01 5/24/2002 1 © 2002 HUNTER FAN CO. Step 2: Inspect the Fan 1. Unpack the fan carefully to avoid any damage to components.

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 13 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. 41569-01 5/24/2002 Oil Hole Screw 5 © 2002 HUNTER FAN CO. that includes all mounting hardware and a fresh tube of oil for this reason. The model number is 22360. Grommet Figure 16 CAUTION: DO NOT TURN THE FAN ON UNTIL LUBRICATION HAS BEEN ADDED. TO OPERATE THE FAN WITHOUT OIL OR WITH LOW OIL WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY. Fan Blade Canopy Installation packaging has been provided to nest the parts in during assembly to assure correct alignment of parts. 1. Assemble the canopy halves around the pipe. Screw together loosely using the two canopy screws provided in the sack parts. NOTE: Grommets are usually assembled by hand. If you use a tool, make certain you do not damage the grommet or blade when inserting the grommets. NOTE: Brass and Antique Brass canopies are shipped together. 2. Position the canopy close to the ceiling. 4. With some fans you have an option to install four or five blades. For five blades, mount to the outer row of holes on the motor. For four blades use the inner row. See Figure 17. 3. Tighten both of the assembly screws and SCREW IN the canopy set screw. See Figure 14. NOTE: If a Vaulted Ceiling Mounting Kit is used, follow the canopy instructions provided with the kit. Outer Row Inner Row Figure 14 Figure 17 Set Screw 5. To install the blades to the motor, insert the blade iron screw through the hole in the blade iron. Use a screwdriver to hold in place. Assembly Screw Step 7: Fan Blade Assembly and Installation 6. Fasten the screw onto the motor, but do not overtighten. See Figure 18. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE BRACKETS WHEN INSTALLING THE BRACKETS, BALANCING THE BLADES OR CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS IN BETWEEN ROTATING FAN BLADES. 7. Line up the other hole on the motor and fasten the second screw. Figure 18 1. Attach the wood blades to the blade brackets using three screws for each blade. See Figure 15. NOTE: Before tightening the screws, make sure they are not cross-threaded in the mounting holes. Figure 15 2. If your blades have large holes, you must first insert the rubber grommets into the holes. See Figure 16. 8. Tighten both screws securely. Repeat for the remaining blades. CAUTION: DO NOT ATTEMPT TO RUN THE FAN UNTIL ALL SCREWS HAVE BEEN TIGHTENED SECURELY. 3. Make sure that all screws are tight to prevent vibration or wobbling. A cavity in the styrofoam 9.

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.
