WARNING: Read and follow these instructions carefully and be mindful of all warnings shown throughout.
GENERAL INSTALLATION & OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT S AFEGUARDS:
1. To ensure the success of the installation, be sure to read the instructions and review the diagrams thoroughly
b e f o r e be gi n n in g.
2. To avoid possible electric shock, be sure electricity is tur ned off at the main power box before wiring. All electrical
connections must be made in accordance with local codes, ordinances and/or the National Electric Code. If you are
unfamiliar with the methods of installing electrical wiring and products, secure the services of a qualified and
licensed electrician as well as someone who can check the strength of the supportive ceiling members and make
the proper installation(s) and connections.
3. Make sure that your installation site will not allow rotating fan blades to come in contact with any object. Blades
should be at least 7 feet from floor when fan is operating.
4. The fan should be mounted on a ceiling outlet box, an approved box UL listed as “suitable for fan suppor t” is
required. The box and its supporting members must be able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least
35lbs.). The box must not be able to twist or work loose. Installation on a concrete ceiling should be performed
by qualified personnel.
5. Blades should be attached after motor housing is hung and in place. Fan motor housing should be kept in the
carton until ready to be installed to protect its finish. If you are installing more than one ceiling fan, make sure
that you do not mix fan blade sets, as each blade is part of a weighted set.
6. After making electrical connections, spliced conductors should be turned upward and pushed carefully up into
outlet box. The wires should be spread apart with the common conductor and the grounding conductor on one
side of the outlet box, and the “HOT” wires on the other side.
7. Electrical diagrams are for reference only.
8. After fan is completely installed, check to make sure that all connections are secure to prevent fan from falling
and/or causing damage or injury.
9. The fan can be made to work immediately after installation - the bearings are adequately charged with grease so
that, under normal conditions, further lubrication should not be necessary for the life of the fan.
10. The fan should be turned off and allowed to stop rotating before reversing fan direction.

IMPORTANT SAFETY PRECAUTIONS
Thank you for choosing a Regency Ceiling Fan.
You have chosen the best!
Your new ceiling fan has been designed to provide
many years of service and enjoyment.
WARNINGS:
*
Disconnect power by removing fuse or turning off circuit breaker before installing the fan and/or optional lighting.
*
To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury, mount to outlet box marked “acceptable for fan support”

lighting fixtures are not acceptable for fan support and may need to be replaced. Consult a qualified electrician
if in doubt.
*

NOTE: If power to the fan’s electrical ceiling box is controlled by a wall switch, the wall switch must remain ON
for the radio remote control to operate. Turning the wall switch OFF will turn off all fan/light function and resets
the receiver back to default mode. The wall switch will need to be turned back ON to allow use of remote control.
* Restore power by replacing fuse or resetting circuit breaker ONLY AFTER ALL INSTALLATION AND ELECTRICAL
WORK IS COMPLETED AND DOUBLE-CHECKED.
BLADE ATTACHMENT
1. Place washer on screw. Insert this assembly through the
blade and start the screw into the blade arm. Repeat this
procedure without tightening the screw until all 3 screws
have been started into the blade arm (Fig. 2).

• The light functions are controlled by pressing the light buttons. Hold a button down to increase or decrease light brightness. Tap button quickly to turn light off or on. The U/L button controls the up-light and the D/L button controls the lower
light. They can be controlled independently and each has its own memory circuit that will keep the preset brightness you
have chosen. Just release the button at the desired light brightness and that setting will be remembered the next time the
light is turned on. The pre-set brightness can be changed by holding down the light button again until the new desired
brightness is reached.
• Keep pressing the button for more than one second to dim the light and vary it cyclically from dim to bright and back again.
• Range of the transmitter is approximately 25 ft.
• Forward/Reverse Direction:
Forward is a counterclockwise rotation of the blades when viewed from beneath the fan. This will create a downward breeze
that can be felt below the fan. This is the normal direction for the fan to run when the weather is warm.
Reverse (clockwise) will draw air up through the blades and towards the ceiling, down the walls, and into the living space
during the cooler months.

CARE AND CLEANING
Periodic cleaning of your new ceiling fan is about the only maintenance that is needed. Only use a soft brush or lint free cloth
to avoid scratching the finish. DO NOT use water when cleaning your ceiling fan. It could damage the motor or the blades
and/or create the possibility of electrical shock.
Periodically it may be necessary to re-tighten blade to blade arm screws or blade arm to motor screws to prevent clicking or
humming sound during operation. This is especially true in climates with broad temperature and humidity ranges and in fans
with painted or high gloss blades.
When dusting the blades, you must support the blade to prevent its bending - no pressure should be applied to the blades. If you
experience any flaws in the operation of your fan, please check the following points:
TROUBLESHOOTING - IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
C A U T I O N : S w i t c h o f f p o w e r s u p p l y b e f o r e car r y in g o u t a n y of t h e s e ch e ck s .
I f f a n w i l l n o t s t a r t:
• Check main and branch circuit breakers and/or fuses.
• Check line wire connections to fan and switch housing wiring.
• Make sure a fresh battery is in the remote control transmitter.
• Make sure the codes on both the transmitter and receiver are set the same.
• Fully extend the receiver antenna inside of canopy.
I f fa n is n oisy :
• Check that all screws in motor housing are snug (but not overtight).
• Check that the screws securing blades to the motor are tight.
• Check that wire connectors in the canopy are not rattling against each other or the interior wall of the canopy.
• Check that all glassware is finger tight and that bulb(s) are well held in the sockets.
• Check that the canopy is firmly attached to hanging bracket and not vibrating against ceiling.
If f an wob bles :
• Check that all blades are firmly screwed into blade arms.
• Check to make sure that all glassware and shades are fastened properly.
• Wobble can also result from even the smallest deviations in distance from blade tip to blade tip - if measurements from
blade tip to blade tip are not equal, loosen screws connecting blade to bracket one at a time and adjust blade(s) so that
distances are equal. Interchanging adjacent blades may redistribute mass and result in smoother operation.
• Check to make sure that all hanger bracket screws and electrical box fasteners are tight. If electrical box is not tight to
the building, the whole fan, bracket, and electrical box may be moving as a result of the wobble. This can be dangerous if the electrical box should work loose from the building.
