SAFETY RULES
1. Before you begin installing the fan, shut power off at the circuit breaker of the fuse box.
2. Be cautious! Read all instructions and safety information before installing your new fan. Review accompanying assembly diagrams.
3. Make sure that all electrical connections comply with local codes, ordinances, or National Electrical Codes. Hire a qualified electrician or consult a
do-it-yourself wiring handbook if you are unfamiliar with installing electrical wiring.
4. Make sure the installation site you choose allows the fan blades to rotate without any obstructions. Allow a minimum clearance of 7 feet from the
floor and 18 inches from the tip of the blades to the wall.
5. If you are mounting the fan to a ceiling fan outlet box, use a U.L. Listed metal octagonal outlet box marked "Acceptable for Fan Support". Secure the
box directly to the building structure. The outlet box and its support must be able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds) Do
not use a plastic box.
6. Caution: To reduce the risk of injury use only the screws provided with the outlet box in conjunction with the lock washers provided with the fan.
7. If you are mounting the fan to a joist, make sure it is able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds).
8. After you install the fan, make sure that all mounting components are secured to prevent the fan from falling.
9. Do not insert anything into the fan blades while the fan is operating.
10. Turn the fan off and wait for the blades to stop completely before performing any maintenance or cleaning.
ATTENTION: The Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires this fan to be equipped with a 190 watt limiting device. If lamping exceeds 190 watts, the
ceiling fan's light kit will shut off automatically.
NOTE: The important safeguards and instructions appearing in this manual are not meant to cover all possible conditions and situations that may
occur. It must be understood that common sense, caution and care are factors which can not be built into this product. These factors must be
supplied by the person (s) installing, caring for and operating the unit.
NOTE: READ AND SAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS!
WARNING
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK OR OTHER PERSONAL INJURY, MOUNT FAN ONLY TO A U.L. LISTED OUTLET BOX OR SUPPORTING SYSTEM
MARKED ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT AND USE MOUNTING SCREWS PROVIDED WITH THE OUTLET BOX IN CONJUCTION WITH THE LOCK WASHERS
PROVIDED WITH THE FAN. MOST OUTLET BOXES COMMONLY USED FOR FAN SUPPORT OF LIGHTING FIXTURES ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT AND
NEED TO BE REPLACED. CONSULT A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN IF IN DOUBT.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE HOLDERS WHILE INSTALLING, BALANCING THE BLADES OR CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT
INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS BETWEEN ROTATING FAN BLADES.
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE OR ELECTRONIC SHOCK, THIS FAN ONLY CAN USE UC9031 SOLID-STATE SPEED CONTROL ONLY.

Speed settings for warm or cool weather depend on factors such as the room size. Ceiling height,
number of fans, etc.
The Reverse switch is located on top of the motor housing (Fig. 22). Slide the switch to the Left
for warm weather operation. Slide the switch to the Right for cool weather operation.
NOTE: Wait for fan to stop before changing the setting of the slide switch.

Warm weather - (Forward)
A downward airflow creates a cooling effect
as shown in Fig. 23. This allows you to set
your air conditioner on a warmer setting
without affecting your comfort.
Cool weather - (Reverse)
An upward airflow moves warm air off the
ceiling area as shown in Fig. 24. This allows
you to set your heating unit on a cooler
setting without affecting your comfort.

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,
"ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS".

SOLUTION
SOLUTION
Check fuses or circuit breakers.
Check wall control connections.
Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in
switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is off.
Check to make sure the reverse is set to one side. If switch is located
in the middle it might not make proper contact.
Allow a 24-hour "break-in" period. Most noises as sociated with a new
fan go away during this time.
Make sure all motor housing screws are snug.
Make sure the screws that attach the fan blade bracket to the motor
hub are tight.
SYMPTOM
Fan Wobble
SYMPTOM
Lights shut off and will not come back on.
SOLUTION
SOLUTION
NOTE: All blade sets are grouped by weight. Because wood and
plastic blades vary in density, the fan may wobble even though
blades are matched.
Make sure outlet box is secured to building structure, if necessary
use the wood screws provided to further secure outlet box to joist.
Make sure hanger bracket is secure to the outlet box, screws are
tight.
If a Balancing kit is provided follow the instructions included with
the balancing kit to help correct any excessive wobble.
This unit is equipped with a wattage limiting device. Lamping in
excess of 190 watts will disable your ceiling fan’s light kit. To reset
your light kit you must turn the power off and re lamp, keeping the
wattage under 190 watts. Restore power to your ceiling fan and
continue normal operation.
