SAFETY TIPS.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, turn off the electricity to the fan at the main fuse box or circuit
panel before you begin the fan installation or before servicing the fan or installing accessories.
1.
READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND SAFETY INFORMATION CAREFULLY BEFORE INSTALLING YOUR FAN
AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.
CAUTION: To avoid personal injury, the use of gloves may be necessary while handling fan parts with sharp
edges.
2.
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.
3.
Make sure you have a location selected for your fan that allows clear space for the blades to rotate, and at
least ten (10) feet (3.05 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.
4.
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 UL 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 one12 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 two fan lead wires, consult an electrician
for the proper size wire connectors to use.
WARNING: If using this fan in a DAMP location, this fan must be connected to a supply circuit that is protected
by a Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) to reduce the risk of personal injury, electrical shock or death.
5.
6.
7.
Electrical diagrams are for reference only. Light kits that are not packed with the fan must be UL listed and
marked suitable for use with the model fan you are installing. Switches must be UL general use
switches. Refer to the instructions packaged with the light kits and switches for proper assembly.
After installation is complete, check that all connections are absolutely secure.
After making electrical connections, spliced conductors should be turned upward and pushed carefully up
into the outlet box. The wires should be spread apart with the grounded conductor and the
equipment-grounding conductor on opposite sides of the outlet box.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock or fire, do not use this fan with any solid state speed control
device or control fan speed with a full range dimmer switch. [Using a full range dimmer switch to control fan
speed will cause a loud humming noise from fan.]
8.
Do not insert anything between the fan blades while they are rotating.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend the blade arms during assembly or after
installation. Do not insert objects into the path of the blades.
WARNING: To avoid personal injury or damage to the fan and other items, be cautious when working around or
cleaning the fan.
9.
Do not use water or detergents when cleaning the fan or fan blades. A dry dust cloth or lightly dampened
cloth will be suitable for most cleaning.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, use only parts provided with this fan. The use of parts OTHER
than those provided with this fan will void the warranty.
NOTE: The important safety precautions and instructions appearing in the manual are not meant to cover all
possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that common sense and caution are
necessary factors in the installation and operation of this fan.

1. Unpacking Your Fan.
Carefully open the packaging. Remove items
from Styrofoam inserts. Remove motor housing
and place on carpet or Styrofoam to avoid
damage to finish. Do not discard fan carton or
Styrofoam inserts should this fan need to be
returned for repairs.
Check against parts inventory that all parts have
been included.

Remove existing fixture.
WARNING: When using an existing outlet box, be
sure the outlet box is securely attached to the building
structure and can support the full weight of the fan.
Ensure outlet box is clearly marked "Suitable for Fan
Support." If not, it must be replaced with an approved
outlet box. Failure to do so can result in serious injury.
CAUTION: Be sure outlet box is grounded properly
and that a ground wire (green or bare) is present.
Install hanging bracket to outlet box using original
screws, spring washers and flat washers provided
with new or original outlet box.* Arrange electrical
wiring around the back of the hanging bracket and
away from the hanging bracket opening.
*Note: It is very important that you use the proper
hardware when installing the hanging bracket as this
will support the fan.

5. Fan Assembly.
Tip: To prepare for threading electrical wires
through downrod, apply a small piece of electrical
tape to the ends of the electrical wires--this will
keep the wires together when threading them
through the downrod.

IMPORTANT: Due to the size (width) of this fan, it
is advisable to seek the help of another person to
hold the stepladder in place and to then help lift
the fan up to you once you are set on the ladder.

Find a secure attachment point (wood ceiling joist
highly recommended) and secure safety cable. It
will be necessary to use a heavy duty wood screw,
washer and lock washer (not supplied) with the
safety cable loop. If necessary, adjust the loop at
the end of the safety cable. The loop at the end of
the safety cable should just fit over the threads on
the wood screw. Extra cable slack can be left in
ceiling area.

11. Testing Your Fan.
It is recommended that you test fan before finalizing
installation. Restore power from circuit box and light
switch (if applicable). Locate ON/OFF slider switch on
wall control and set to the ON position. Test
ROTATION/OFF function of main fan with button used to
control rotation of fan; test fan speeds of smaller fans
with different fan speed buttons and OFF button. Next,
locate remote control. Test fan speeds (and OFF) with
the different fan speed buttons and then test rotation of
fan (and OFF) as was done with wall control. If the
wall/remote control operates all of the functions of the
fan, battery has been installed correctly. If the wall
and/or remote controls do (does) not operate all of the
fan functions, refer to "Troubleshooting" section to solve
any issues before contacting Customer Service.
NOTE: If remote control interferes with other appliances,
change code switches on remote control transmitter
and wall control to another code. If you do change the
code, turn power off first and then remove battery
cover. After setting new code on transmitter AND wall
control, go back to instructions in last paragraph of
Section 8 (page 6).
The tilt angle of the smaller fans may be adjusted up or
down by simply moving them gently up or down.
CAUTION: To avoid personal injury or damage to the
fan(s), both the main fan and the smaller fans MUST BE
OFF before adjusting the smaller fans up or down.
