CARE OF YOUR FAN
Here are some suggestions to help maintain your fan.
1. Because of the fan's natural movement some connections may become
loose. Check the support connections, brackets and blade attachments
twice a year. Make sure they are secure. (It is not necessary to remove
fan from the ceiling).
2. Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over
the years. Use only a soft brush or lint free cloth to avoid scratching the
finish. Plated finishes are sealed with lacquer to minimize discoloration
or tarnishing. Do not use water when cleaning, this could damage the
motor, wood blades or possibly cause an electrical shock.
3. If your fan is provided with wood veneer blades; you can apply a light
coat of furniture polish for additional protection and enhanced beauty.
Cover small scratches with a light application of shoe polish.
4. Use a lint free lightly damp cloth or duster to remove dust from
the blades.
5. There is no need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently lubricated
bearings.
6. If your fan is provided with glass shades, clean with lukewarm soapy water
and a soft cloth or sponge. DO NOT IMMERSE GLASS SHADES IN HOT WATER.
DO NOT PUT GLASS SHADES INTO AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.
WARNING!
MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF AT THE
ELECTRICAL PANEL BOX BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT
ANY REPAIRS. REFER TO THE SECTION,
