READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Installation work and electrical wiring must be done by qualified person(s) in accordance with applicable codes and standards (ANSI/NFPA
70-1999), including fire-rated construction.
Use this unit only in the manner intended by the manufacturer. If you have any questions contact the manufacturer.
After making the wire connections, the wires should be spread apart with the grounded conductor and the equipment-grounding conductor
on one side of the outlet box and ungrounded conductor on the other side of the outlet box. The splices, after being made, should be
turned upward and pushed carefully up into the outlet box.
WARNING: Before you begin installing the fan, servicing or cleaning unit, Switch power off at Service panel and lock service disconnecting
means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely fasten a
prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.
Be cautious! Read all instructions and safety information before installing your new fan. Review the accompanying assembly diagrams.
When cutting or drilling into wall or ceiling, do not damage electrical wiring and other hidden utilities.
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 to the trailing edge of the blade.

Knockouts In The Outlet Box. Mount the secondary support safety cable through the reserved nail/screw hole on the outlet box to the
building structure (or the ceiling joist).
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend blade holders during installation to motor, balancing or during cleaning. Do
not insert foreign object between rotating blades.
Attach the mounting bracket using only the hardware supplied with the outlet box.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, this fan must be installed with an isolating wall control/switch.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do not use this fan with any unverified solid state fan speed control device, or
variable speed control.
If this unit is to be installed over a tub or shower, it must be marked as appropriate for the application.
Never place a switch where it can be reached from a tub or shower.

equipment manufacturer’s guideline safety standards such as those published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the
American Society for Heating, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and the local code authorities.
CAUTION: To Reduce the Risk of Electric Shock, Disconnect the electrical supply circuit to the fan before installing the light kit.
All set screws must be checked and tightened where necessary before installation.

Before installing this fan make sure the outlet box is properly installed to
the house structure. To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, or
personal injury, mount to outlet box or supporting system acceptable
for fan support (Mounting must support at least 35 lbs). (Fig. 2)
Use metal outlet box suitable for fan support and use only the screws
(and may be with flat washers and lock washers) provided with the outlet
box (must support 35 lbs). Before attaching fan to outlet box, ensure
the outlet box is securely fastened by at least two points to a structural
ceiling member (a loose box will cause the fan to wobble). Remove the
two outlet box screws provided with the box, aligning the holes of the
mounting bracket with the holes of the outlet box. Reinstall the 2 outlet
