1. SAFETY RULES
1. To reduce the risk of electric shock, insure
electricity has been turned off at the circuit
breaker or fuse box before beginning.
2. All wiring must be in accordance with the
National Electrical Code and local electrical
codes. Electrical installation should be
performed by a qualified licensed
electrician.
3. WARNING: Suitable for use with
solid-state speed controls.
4. WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal
injury, use only the two steel screws (and
lock washers) provided with the outlet box
for mounting to the outlet box. Most outlet
boxes commonly used for the support of
lighting fixtures are not acceptable for fan
support and may need to be replaced,
consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK
OR PERSONAL INJURY, MOUNT FAN TO OUTLET
BOX MARKED "ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN
SUPPORT".
5. The outlet box and support structure must
be securely mounted and capable of

of 7 feet clearance from the trailing edge of
the blades to the floor.
7. Do not operate reversing switch while fan
blades are in motion. Fan must be turned
off and blades stopped before reversing
blade direction.
8. Avoid placing objects in the path of the
blades.
9. To avoid personal injury or damage to the
fan and other items, be cautious when
working around or cleaning the fan.
10. Do not use water or detergents when
cleaning the fan or fan blades. A dry dust
cloth or lightly dampened cloth will be
suitable for most cleaning.
11. After marking electrical connections,
spliced conductors should be turned
upward and pushed carefully up into outlet
box. The wires should be spread apart with
the grounded conductor and the
equipment-grounding conductor on one
side of the outlet box.
12. Electrical diagrams are reference only.

Installation) listed mounting box, then read the
following instructions. Disconnect the power by
removing fuses or turning off circuit breakers.
Outlet box
Fig. 1
Secure the outlet box directly to the building
structure. Use appropriate fasteners and
building materials. The outlet box and its
support must be able to fully support the
moving weight of the fan (at least 50 lbs). Do
not use plastic outlet boxes.
Figures 1, 2 and 3 are examples of different
ways to mount the outlet box.
NOTE: If you are installing the ceiling fan on a
sloped (vaulted) ceiling, you may need a
longer downrod to maintain proper clearance
between the tip of the blade and the ceiling. A
minimum clearance of 12" is suggested for
optimal operation.

5. HANGING THE FAN
NOTE: This ceiling fan is supplied with two
types of hanging assemblies; a downrod and
canopy mounting system and a "close to
ceiling" Canopy ONLY system. The "close-toceiling" installation is recommended in rooms
with less than 8-foot ceilings or in areas where
additional space is desired from the floor to the
fan blades. Once you have selected which
mounting system you will use, proceed with
the following instructions. Where necessary,
each section of the instructions will note the
different procedures to follow for the two types
of mounting.
REMEMBER to turn off the power before you
begin.
To properly install your ceiling fan, follow the

6. INSTALLATION OF SAFETY SUPPORT
(required for Canadian installation ONLY)
A safety support cable is provided to help
prevent the ceiling fan from falling, please
install it as follows.
Step 1. Attach the provided wood screw and
washers to the ceiling joist next to the
mounting bracket but do not tighten. (Fig. 12)
Step 2. Adjust the length of the safety cable to
reach the screw and washers by pulling the
extra cable through the cable clamp until the
overall length is correct, put the end of the
cable back through the cable clamp, forming a
loop at the end of the cable. Tighten the cable
clamp securely. Now, put the loop in the end of
the safety cable over the wood screw and
under the washer. Tighten the wood screw
securely.
NOTE: Although the safety support cable is
required for Canadian installations only. It's a
good idea to make the attachment with any
installation.

11. OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Turn the power on and check the operation of
your ceiling fan.
The pull chain controls the 3 speeds of your
ceiling fan as follows:
1 pull = High, 2 pulls = Medium, 3 pulls = Low
and the 4th pull turns the motor off.
Fig. 18
The Black Slide Switch on the side of the
switch housing controls the direction of the
blades "Forward and Reverse".
Warm weather - Forward (counter clockwise)
A downward airflow creates a cooling effect
as shown in Fig. 18. This allows you to set
your air conditioner on a warmer setting
without affecting your comfort.
Cool weather - Reverse (clockwise) An
upward airflow moves warm air off the ceiling
area as shown in Fig. 19. This allows you to
set your heating unit on a cooler setting
without affecting your comfort.

12. TROUBLESHOOTING
Problem
Solution
Fan will not start.
1. Check circuit fuses or breakers
2. Check all electrical connections to insure proper contact. CAUTION: Make
sure the main power is OFF when checking any electrical connection.
Fan sounds noisy. 1. Make sure all motor housing screws are snug.
2. Make sure the screws that attach the fan blade brackets to the motor are tight.
3. Make sure wire nut connections are not rubbing against each other or the
interior wall of the switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is off.
4. Allow a 24-hour "breaking-in" period. Most noise associated with a new fan
disappear during this time.
5. If using an optional light kit, make sure the screws securing the glassware are
tight. Check that the light bulb is also secure.
6. Some fan motors are sensitive to signals from solid-state variable speed
controls. If you have installed this type of control, choose and install another type
of control.
7. Make sure the upper canopy is a short distance from the ceiling. It should not
touch the ceiling.
Fan wobble.
1. Check that all blade and blade arm screws are secure.
2. Most fan wobbling problems are caused when blade levels are unequal. Check
this level by selecting a point on the ceiling above the tip of one of the blades.
Measure this distance. Rotate the fan until the next blade is positioned for
measurement. Repeat for each blade. The distance deviation should be equal
within 1/8".
3. Use the enclosed Blade Balancing Kit if the blade wobble is still noticeable.
4. If the blade wobble is still noticeable, interchanging two adjacent (side by side)
blades can redistribute the weight and possibly result in smoother operation.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND
THE BLADE ARM WHILE INSTALLING, BALANCING THE BLADES, OR
CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS BETWEEN
ROTATING FAN BLADES.
