INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Windmaster Model DC
RECEIVING AND INSPECTION
Immediately upon receipt of a shipment, carefully inspect for
damage and shortage. Turn propeller by hand to see that it turns
freely and does not bind. If any damage and/or shortage is detected or suspected the carrier must be asked to conduct an inspection. The consignee’s representative should not accept
shipment without a notation on the delivery receipt indicating
items not delivered or apparent extent of damage.
When a shipment is opened and damage is found which was not
evident externally (concealed damage), it is mandatory that the
consignee request an immediate inspection by the carrier. Report damage to the carrier within 15 days. Failure to report damage within the above time limit will cause rejection of a claim.
HANDLING
When handling fans and their accessories, always use equipment and methods that will not cause damage. Fans should be
lifted using slings and padding or spreaders to avoid damage.
CAUTION! Always make sure that all lifting and handling equipment and techniques conform to current safety standards.
Avoid lifting fans in a way that will bend or distort fan parts. Never
pass slings or timbers through the orifices of fan.
CAUTION! Do not lift by the fan hood. Fans with special coatings or paints must be protected in handling to prevent damage.
STORAGE
Fans are protected against damage during shipment. If they cannot be installed and put into operation immediately upon receipt
certain precautions are necessary to prevent deterioration during
storage. Responsibility for integrity of fans and accessories during storage must be assumed by the user. The manufacturer will
not be responsible for damage during storage. These suggestions are provided solely as a convenience to the user, who shall
make his own decision as to whether to use any or all of them.
INDOOR: The ideal storage environment for fans and accessories is indoors, above grade, in a low humidity atmosphere which
is sealed to prevent the entry of blowing dust, rain, or snow. Temperatures should be evenly maintained at between 70°F and
105°F (wide temperature swings may cause condensation and
"sweating" of metal parts). Windows should be covered to prevent temperature variations caused by sunlight. Provide thermometers and humidity indicators at several points and maintain
the atmosphere at 40% relative humidity, or lower.
It may be necessary to use trays of renewable desiccant or portable dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air in the storage
enclosure.
Thermostatically controlled portable heaters (vented to outdoors)
may be required to maintain even temperatures inside the enclosure.
CAUTION! Provide fire extinguishers, or fire alarms, or emergency response communication to protect building and equipment against fire damage. Be sure that building and storage
practices meet all local, state and federal fire and safety codes.
The following fans or accessories must be stored indoors, in a
clean dry atmosphere:
a. Propeller wall fans not in wall housings.
b. Any fan protected by a cardboard carton.
c. Motors dismounted from fans.
d. Spare wheels or propellers.
e. Belts, sheaves, bushings and other parts when not mounted
on fan.
f.
Boxes, bags or cartons of hardware.
g. Curbs
h. Dampers
Remove any accumulations of dirt, water, ice or snow and wipe
dry before moving indoor storage. Allow cold parts to reach room
temperature to avoid “sweating” of metal parts. Open boxes or
cartons. Remove any accumulated moisture; if necessary use
portable electric heaters to dry parts and packages. Leave coverings loose to permit air circulation and to permit periodic inspection.
Rotate wheels or propellers by hand to distribute bearing grease
over the entire bearing surfaces.
Store at least 3 ½” off the floor on wooden blocks covered with
moisture proof paper or polyethylene sheathing. Provide aisles
between parts and along all walls, to permit air circulation and
space for inspection.
OUTDOOR: Fans designed for outdoor use may be stored outdoors, if absolutely necessary. The storage area should be reasonably level and drained or ditched to prevent accumulation of
water. Fencing and lighting for security are desirable. Roads or
aisles for portable cranes and hauling equipment are needed.
Consider the use of drift fencing to minimize accumulation of
blowing snow or dirt.
The following fans may be stored outdoors, if dry indoor storage
space is not available:
a. Fans intended for outdoor use that are crated in wood.
b. Wall fans installed in wall housings.
All fans must be supported on wooden blocks or timbers above
water or normal snow levels. Provide enough blocking to prevent
settling into soft ground. Fans should be set in place using the directional arrow markings on the crate as a guide.
Locate pieces far enough apart to permit air circulation, sunlight,
and space for periodic inspection. Place all parts on their supports so that rain water will run off, or to minimize water accumulation. Do not cover parts with plastic film or tarps-these cause
condensation of moisture from the air passing through heating
and cooling cycles.
Fan wheels and propellers should be blocked to prevent spinning
caused by strong winds.
INSPECTION AND MAINTENANCE DURING STORAGE
Inspect fans and accessories at least once per month, while in
storage. Log results of inspection and maintenance performed.
A typical log entry should include the following:
a. Date
b. Inspector’s Name
c. Name of Fan
d. Location
e. Condition of Paint or Coating
f.
Is moisture present?
g. Is dirt accumulated?
h. Corrective steps taken?
If moisture or dirt accumulations are found on parts, the source
should be located and eliminated. Fans should be rotated at
each inspection by hand ten to fifteen revolutions to redistribute
the motor and bearing lubricant.
If paint deterioration begins, consideration should be given to
touch-up or repainting. Fans with special coatings may require
special techniques for touch-up or repair.
Machined parts coated with rust preventive should be restored to
good condition promptly if signs of rust occur. The most critical
items are pulleys, shafts and bearing locking collars. At the first
sign of rusting on any of the above parts, remove the original rust
preventive coating with petroleum solvent and clean lint-free
cloths. Polish any remaining rust from surfaces with crocus cloth
or fine emery paper and oil. Do not destroy the continuity of the
surfaces. Wipe clean with lint-free cloths and recoat surfaces
evenly and thoroughly with Tectly 506 (Ashland Oil Company) or
equal. For hard to reach internal surfaces or for occasional use,
consider using Tectly 511M Rust Preventive or WD40 or equal.
REMOVING FROM STORAGE
As fans are removed from storage to be installed in their final location, they should be protected and maintained in similar fashion, until the fan equipment goes into operation.

Before starting, check all fasteners for tightness particularly
in the propeller hub. Turn the propeller by hand to make
sure it rotates freely and that the blades do not strike the
orifice.
WARNING! Check voltage being supplied to the fan to see
that it corresponds with the motor nameplate voltage; high
or low voltage can seriously damage the motor. On
multi-voltage motors, check motor terminal connections to
make sure motor is internally connected for voltage being
supplied. Motor wiring diagram is located on the side of the
motor or in the motor wiring compartment. Extra care should
be taken when wiring two speed motors since improper
connections will damage motor and void motor warranty.
Leave enough slack in wiring to allow for motor movement
when adjusting belt tension.
Apply power momentarily and compare the rotation of the
impeller with the directional arrow on fan. In the case of
three phase motors, the direction can be changed by
interchanging any two of the three motor leads. In the case
of the single phase motors, the reversing instructions will
appear on the wiring diagram in the motor wiring
compartment.
When supply type fans are used with motorized wall
shutters, it is necessary that a time delay switch be used
between the power source and the fan motor which will allow
the shutter to fully open before the fan is activated.
6.
7.
When using an automatic shutter, be sure to position
the shutter at least 6” from fan blades.
A distance of at least one and one-half times the diameter of
the fan should be allowed between the fan inlet or discharge
opening and any adjacent wall or large obstruction.
CAUTION! Before proceeding, make sure electrical service
to fan is locked in “OFF” position.
All wiring should be in accordance with local ordinances and
the National Electric code.
3
Under normal usage, no spare parts are recommended for
one year of normal service. Recommended spare parts are
shown on page 5.
CAUTION! Before proceeding, make sure electrical service
to fan is locked in “OFF” position.
WINDMILLING: Even when the power supply is locked out,
fans may cause injury or damage if the impeller is subject to
“windmilling” which is the turning of the impeller and drive
components due to a draft in the system. To guard against
this hazard, the impeller should be secured to physically
restrict rotational movement.
Motor bearings are prelubricated. Consult information
printed on motor for lubrication instructions.
Propeller shaft bearings are prelubricated, sealed and
require no service.
On belt driven units, check belt tension after first 48 hours of
operation and thereafter annually. Belt should depress its
width when pressed firmly inward at midway point between
the pulleys. Too much tension will damage bearings. The
belt should be tight enough to prevent slippage. When
replacing worn belt, replace motor pulley if “shoulder” is
worn in groove. WARNING! Do not operate at higher
speeds than that cataloged for this equipment. Do not
replace motor pulley with a larger diameter pulley. Do not
replace the fan pulley with one smaller in diameter. The
pulley ratios are set so that the motor will not be overloaded.
If motor requires replacement, a comparable one to the
original with the same service factor and enclosure must be
used.
If propeller shaft bearings need replacement, replace with
bearings comparable to original equipment. For die formed
type support housing install new bearings into neoprene
rings, check correct position of propeller with orifice,
position bearings in die formed recess and tighten set
screws. Replace die formed bearing cap and tighten four
bolts.
NOTE: If locking collar type bearing is used, collar must first
be positioned against inner race on bearing nearest
propeller and turned in direction of propeller rotation with
drift pin and hammer until it locks. Locking collars must be
on inboard (facing) sides of the bearing. Secure bearing to
shaft with set screw. Lock and secure other bearing to shaft
in same manner.

VARIABLE FREQUENCY DRIVES AND MOTORS
Before initial operation of the fan, tighten set screws
according to the procedure outlined below.
After 500 operating hours or three months, whichever
comes first, tighten set screws to the full recommended
torque.
At least once a year, tighten set screws to the full
recommended torque.
There are occasions when a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) will
cause poor motor performance and possible damage. To avoid
these problems, the Company recommends the following:
1.
Select compatible motor and VFD inverter; if possible, the
motor and the inverter should be from the same
manufacturer or at least the inverter selected should be
recommended by the motor manufacturer.
2.
PROCEDURE FOR TIGHTENING SET SCREWS IN
BEARINGS AND HUBS
One Set Screw Application
Using a torque wrench, tighten the set screw to the torque recommended in Table 1.
Two Set Screw Application
1.
Using a torque wrench, tighten one set screw to half of the
torque recommended in Table 1.
2.
Tighten the second set screw to the full recommended
torque.
3.
Tighten the first set screw to the full recommended torque.
A motor shaft grounding system should be used to prevent
motor bearing damage from eddy currents.
NOTE: The Company will not honor motor warranty
claims if the c ustomer fails to follow these
recommendations.
