Make sure all electrical connections comply with Local Codes or Ordinances, the National Electrical Code, and
ANSI/NFPA 70-1999. If you are unfamiliar with electrical wiring or if the house/building wires are different
colors than those referred to in the instructions, please use a qualified electrician.
Make sure you have a location selected for your fan that allows clear space for the blades to rotate, and at
least seven (7) feet (2.13 meters) of clearance between the floor and the fan blade tips. The fan should be
mounted so that the tips of the blades are at least thirty (30) inches (76 centimeters) from walls or other
upright structures.
The outlet box and ceiling support joist used must be securely mounted, and capable of supporting at least
35 pounds (16 kilograms). The outlet box must be supported directly by the building structure. Use only
CUL (Canada) or UL (USA) listed outlet boxes marked "FOR FAN SUPPORT."
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, mount to the outlet box marked
"Acceptable for Fan Support of 15.9 kg (35 lb) or less," and use the 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.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, wire connectors provided with this fan are
designed to accept only one 12 gauge house wire and two lead wires from the fan. If your house wire is larger than
12 gauge or there is more than one house wire to connect to the corresponding fan lead wires, consult an
electrician for the proper size wire connectors to use.
