REVISED NOVEMBER 2007
WARNING: Read and follow these instructions carefully and be mindful of all warnings shown throughout.
GENERAL INSTALLATION & OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS:
1. To ensure the success of the installation, be sure to read the instructions and review the diagrams thoroughly
before beginning.
2. To avoid possible electric shock, be sure electricity is turned 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. If possible, mount ceiling fan on a ceiling joist - the joist must be able to support the motion and weight of the
moving fan. If the fan will be mounted on a ceiling outlet box, an approved box UL listed as “suitable for fan
support” 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. Light kits that are not packed with the fan must be UL listed and should
be installed per the light kit’s installation instructions.
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. Support directly from building structure.
• To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury, mount to outlet box marked “acceptable for fan
support” and use mounting screws provided with 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.
• To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, only use this fan with an appropriate speed control
device designed for use with ceiling fans, if you choose a wall control. DO NOT USE A SIMPLE INCANDESCENT
LIGHT DIMMER. Do not use this fan with any transformer type fan speed control device.

INSTALLING THE FAN
INSTALLATION:
This fan has two installation options:
#1 HUGGER MOUNTING
The HUGGER method is preferred if maximum headroom is required. The ceiling must be horizontal, not sloped.
Blades will be approximately 8˝ from the ceiling. Air flow will be reduced when the fan is installed using the HUGGER
method.
#2 DOWNROD MOUNTING
This is the recommended mounting for ceilings 8´ and higher.
The DOWNROD MOUNTING method is preferred if the ceiling is sloped or vaulted, or if the ceiling is extra high and
requires the use of an extension downrod. Blades will be approximately 12˝ from ceiling using supplied downrod.

INSTALLING THE FAN - HUGGER STYLE
INSTALLATION OPTION #1: HUGGER STYLE MOUNTING
NOTE: The S hook is to be used for hugger style mounting.
1. Remove the plastic trim ring from the canopy to expose the 6 mounting holes. The downrod, ball and cotter pin will
not be used for this mounting (Fig. 1).
2. Feed fan wires through the canopy and position the canopy over the mounting collar on top of the fan. The collar's 2
security screws will not be used and can be turned all the way into the collar to make attaching the canopy easier.
3. Align the canopy on top of the fan so the 3 large holes are over the 3 screws holding the collar to the fan. The 3 small
holes will then be aligned with the 3 open holes in the top of the fan.
4. Securely attach the canopy to the top of the fan using the 3 hugger mounting screws provided.
WARNING: To avoid damaging the blade arms and blades, do not install them onto fan until fan is fastened to ceiling.
5. Place the S hook onto the hanger bracket. Hang the canopy (with the fan motor housing attached) from the S hook on
the hanger bracket using one of the holes in the edge of the canopy (Fig. 2). This will permit you to make the
electrical connections without having to hold the fan up as well.
6. Make the wire connections as described in "Electrical Connections" (page 9).
7. Insert 2 screws into the hanger bracket, leaving them partially out (Fig. 3).
8. Attach the canopy to the hanger bracket by inserting the slotted openings of the canopy on the hanger bracket screws
(Fig. 4), and turn the fan to the right to engage the screws in the slots.
9. Insert the 2 remaining screws through the remaining canopy holes and tighten all 4 screws.

BLADE ATTACHMENT
BLADE ATTACHMENT:
1. Place fiber 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. 1).
NOTE: Fans that have painted finishes are packed with gaskets that can be used between the blade arm and blade to help
prevent a clicking noise that may develop if blade screws loosen over time.
2. Tighten each screw starting with center screw.
3
Fasten blade assembly to motor with provided screws and metal lockwashers. Repeat procedure for remaining
blades (Fig. 2). Make sure screws are TIGHT! Loose motor screws can contribute to unnecessary hum and wobble
during operation.
NOTE: Cordless power screw- Install gasket between
arm and blade
drivers are NOT recommended, as blade
(optional)
they tend to strip the heads of the
screws and usually will not fully
compress the spring washers on the
motor screws. Use a large flat blade
screwdriver for final tightening to
fully compress the spring washers.
This will help ensure proper alignment of the blades and noise-free, Fig. 1

OPERATION
Turn on the power and check operation of the fan. The fan is controlled by the use of the fan speed pull chain as follows:
one pull = high speed
two pulls = medium speed
three pulls = low speed
four pulls = off
For proper functions, ensure that the fan speed pull chain is pulled down fully and released each time.
NOTE: Leave pull chain switch in “high speed” position when using optional wall control.
The slide switch on the side of the switch housing controls forward or reverse rotation. Make sure switch is not stuck
between forward and reverse positions.
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.
WARM MONTHS
Forward (counterclockwise)
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.
COOL MONTHS
Reverse (clockwise)
IMPORTANT: To prevent damage or cause injury, be sure that fan is switched to off and blades have stopped moving
completely before attempting to change direction of rotation.
TROUBLESHOOTING - IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
1. If fan will not start: Check main and branch circuit breakers and/or fuses. Check line wire connections to fan and switch
housing wiring. Make sure forward/reverse switch is set to one or the other position, not stuck in between.
2. If fan is noisy: Check and make sure that all screws in motor housing are snug (but not over tight). Check that the screws
securing blade brackets to the motor are tight. Check that wire connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each
other or the interior wall of the switch housing. Check that all glassware is finger tight and that bulb(s) are well held in the
sockets, if a light kit is used. Check that the canopy is firmly attached to hanging bracket and not vibrating against ceiling.
3. If fan wobbles: Check that all blades are firmly screwed into blade arms. Check that all blade arms are firmly secured to the
motor. Make sure that the light kit (if present) is firmly attached to switch housing and 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. Blade arms
can be bent slightly to restore same pitch to all blades if a blade is different than the other blades when viewed edge on.

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
wood 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 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:
