Read and Save These Safety Precautions
Turn off electricity at main switch before wiring or servicing fan in order to avoid
possible electrical shock.
2. All wiring must be in accordance with the National Electric Code (ANSI/NFPA
70-1999) and local electrical codes. Electrical installation should be performed by
a qualified licensed electrician.
3. After making the wire connections, the wires should be spread apart with the
grounded conductor and the equipment-grounding conductor on the one side of
the outlet box and the ungrounded conductor on the other side of the outlet box.
4. The splices after being made should be turned upward and pushed carefully up
into the outlet box.
5. Conductor of a fan identified as grounded conductor to be connected to grounded
conductor of power supply, conductor of a fan identified as ungrounded
conductor to be connected to an ungrounded conductor of power supply,
conductor of fan identified for equipment grounding to be connected to an
equipment-grounding conductor.
6. Fan should not be mounted in an area where it might get wet.
7. To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or personal injury, mount to outlet box
marked "Acceptable for Fan Support" and use mounting screws provide with the
outlet box.
8. For safety and best operating results, we recommend that you have a qualified
electrician assemble and install your fan.
9. WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use this fan with
any solid state speed control device.
10. 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.

Before Assembly
1.
Make sure that the fan voltage (120) is compatible with your own electrical
system.
2. Check to make sure that your carton contains all the parts mentioned in the parts
list.
NOTE: When the motor is taken out of carton, please put it in a soft cloth to prevent
any damage on the ornamental surface.
CAUTION: Before installing, choose a location for mounting the fan where the
blades have at least 7 feet of clearance from all objects and floor. Mount an outlet box
to the ceiling or use an existing box.
CAUTION: Do not mount fan to sheet rock or drywall type materials. To insure
proper support, use the two #1 wood screws to secure mounting bracket to joist or
beam. If the location you choose does not have a suitable support beam, install a
2”X4” brace between ceiling joists to support.

Preparation
Important: When using an existing outlet box, be sure the box is securely
attached to the building structure and can support the full weight of the fan.
Failure to do so can result in serious injury or death.

Step 1
Step 4
Prior to securing mounting bracket, screw "J" hook (S9) into ceiling
outlet box as a secondary support means. Secure mounting bracket
(#1) to the outlet box (A) by tightening bracket screws & washers (S3)
as shown. If not mounting to an outlet box, use wood screws (S1) and
washers (S3) and mount securely to ceiling beam. Be sure at this
point to insert canopy screws (S2) in bracket. NOTE: Do not mount
directly to sheet rock or ceiling tile.
NOTE: J Hook installation is a Canadian requirement only.
Turn off circuit breakers and wall switch to the
fan supply line leads.

Warning: Failure to disconnect power supply prior
to installation may result in serious injury or
death.To reduce the risk of shock, this fan must be
installed with an isolating wall control/switch.

coupling on the motor. Insert safety bolt (S7) through coupling and
downrod and attach nut. Tighten firmly. Tighten set screw "A" against
downrod. For BC & OPXL Series place flange cover (4) over downrod
assembly until it covers flange. Place canopy (3) over downrod (2).
Replace hanging ball, insert hanging pin through downrod and tighten
set screw "C" in hanging ball into downrod.
Step 7
For added security, attach safety cable from fan unit to "J" hook (S9)
in outlet box. Secure by looping zip tie (S10) through safety cable and
"J" hook. Tighten zip tie securely. Lift fan onto the mounting bracket
(#1). Turn housing until hanging ball seats itself into ball socket
(listen for click).

Electrical Connections
Electrical Connections Continued…
Connect black and blue (if provided) fan wires to black outlet wire.
Connect white fan wire to white outlet wire and green grounding lead
wire from the grounding conductor to the supply circuit (see figure A).
Use wire connectors provided with your fan. No loose strands or loose
connections should be present. After wires have been connected, they
must be spread apart so the green and white are on one side of the outlet
box and the black and blue are on the other side. Turn splices upward
and carefully push all wiring into outlet box. For optional wall control
see figure B or Figure C for alternate wiring. When wall switches are
employed, switches should be UL listed for use with ceiling fan.
NOTE: Make sure fan on/off switch is always at "high speed" location if your fan is
controlled by additional wall switch.
