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.
11. When inserting bulbs, do not exceed the 300-watt maximum. The upper lighting fixture uses four 25-watt
bulbs, leaving the remaining 200 watts for the optional lower light kit.

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 solid-state fan speed control device.
*
To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend the blade arms when installing or balancing the blades or cleaning
the fan. Do not insert any objects between rotating fan blades.
*
If installing a light kit, be sure to use the lock washer and nut that comes with the kit to ensure that the kit remains
securely fastened to the switch housing.

ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS: DOWNROD, CANOPY, AND COLLAR COVER
1. Carefully support fan housing (motor) in its styrofoam packing with the mounting collar (where the wires come
out) facing upward.
2. Remove ball from downrod by loosening set screw in the side of the ball. Slide ball down and remove ball pin;
remove ball. The 6˝ downrod is recommended (if clearance above floor allows) to provide greater air flow, since
more space will be available above the blades for supply air.
3. Feed the wires from top of fan through the end of the downrod you have selected, and set end of downrod into
mounting collar so the hole in the downrod lines up with the hole in the side of the mounting collar.
4. Insert downrod pin through holes in mounting collar and downrod; slip cotter pin through small hole in end of
downrod pin to hold downrod pin in place.
5. Tighten security screws against downrod using a large flat blade screwdriver to ensure a tight fit against downrod.
Then tighten lock nuts against mounting collar.
NOTE: Fan has 6 feet of hook-up wire in case you
are using a long extension downrod. Wires can be
cut so only 8 inches or so extend beyond the top
of the downrod to make the electrical connections
easier and safer.

OPERATION
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)
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:
TROUBLESHOOTING - IN CASE OF DIFFICULTY
CAUTION: Switch off power supply before carrying out any of these checks.
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.
