MOUNTING OPTIONS If there isn't an existing UL (cUL for Canadian 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. Outlet box Fig. 2 ANGLED CEILING MAXIMUM 20° ANGLE Provide strong support Recessed outlet box Ceiling mounting plate Fig. 3 Outlet box Fig. 4 NOTE: Depending on the location you have selected for installation, you may need to purchase and install a "Joist Hanger" for the support of the outlet box. Make sure the joist hanger you purchase has been designed for use with ceiling fans. (Fig. 4) Sterling Manor TM 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 steps below. CUL Listed electrial box Washers Ceiling mounting bracket Hook Fig. 5 Cross pin Hanger ball STANDARD CEILING INSTALLATION Step 1.

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. Fig. 19 Sterling Manor TM 10 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. 13.
