MAINTENANCE
Periodic cleaning of your ceiling fan is the only maintenance
that is needed. When cleaning, use only a soft brush or lint
free cloth to avoid scratching the finish. Abrasive cleaning
agents are not required and should be avoided to prevent
damage to the finish. Do not spray water directly onto your
ceiling fan. It could damage the motor or the blades and create
the possibility of an electrical shock or fire.

52" PORCH CEILING FAN
READ AND SAVE THESE
Your new ceiling fan is UL listed and will require a grounded
electrical supply line of 120 volts AC, 60 Hz, 15 amp circuit.
The 52" total fan weight is 26 lbs maximum.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock or
personal injury, mount fan at least 7 feet above the floor to
an outlet box marked “Acceptable for fan support.” Use
screws provided with 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.
Your ceiling fan will fit any of the following electrical boxes:
4" octagon box, 3" octagon box, 1/2" deep ceiling pan, or a
plaster ring with 3 1/2" mounting hole centers mounted on
one of the above listed boxes. Your new fan will also install
on a “wiremold” No. 5738 fixture box. The electrical box must
be securely anchored an capable of withstanding a load of at
least 50 pounds.
If your ceiling fan does not have one of the above electrical
boxes for proper wiring, you may wish to contact a licensed
electrician for installation.
RULES FOR SAFE INSTALLATION
1. Follow the recommended instructions for the proper
method of wiring your ceiling fan. If you do not know
enough about electrical wiring, have your fan installed by
a licensed electrician.
2. All wiring must satisfy National and Local electrical codes.
The ceiling fan must be grounded as a precaution against
possible electrical shock.
3. The electrical outlet box and joist must be securely mounted
and capable of reliably supporting at least 50 pounds.
4. WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock
and/or personal injury:
a) Be sure electricity is turned off at the main fuse box
before wiring, cleaning or servicing.
b) Fan should not be mounted in areas where it might
come in direct contact with water.
RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
1. Be careful of the fan and moving blades when cleaning,
painting or working near fan.
2. Do not put anything into the blades while they are turning.
3. Do not bend the blade brackets when installing the brackets,
balancing the blades or cleaning the fan.
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
4. WARNING: The fan must be hung with at least 7 feet of
clearance from floor to blades.
1.
Attach the hanger bracket to the electrical box capable of
reliably supporting at least 50 pounds. Insert the screws
through the slotted holes in the bracket and attach to the
electrical box. Tighten both screws to the electrical box.

Install motor leads through the canopy then through the
hole in the center of the pipe flange. Insert downrod into
downrod yoke. Make sure to align hole in downrod with
hole in downrod yoke. Lift canopy and install yoke cross
pin through yoke and downrod. Insert cotter pin into cross
pin until it snaps into place. Using a phillips head
screwdriver firmly tighten set screws in yoke. (Figure 2)

Carefully lift the fan and seat the pipe flange and ball
assembly on the hanger bracket that was just attached to
the electrical box. Be sure the notch on the side of the ball
is lined up with tab on the hanger bracket. (Figure 3)

Make sure the electrical box is properly secured. If romex
cable (plastic sheathed) was used to wire the electrical
box, the presence of a third wire connected to the electrical
box indicates that the box is grounded. This ground wire
may be bare wire (no insulating jacket), or a green insulated
wire. The two supply wires will be white and black insulated
wires.
Figure 3
5.
If the wiring to the electrical box is enclosed in electrical
conduit pipe, the ground wire may not be present. The
conduit itself could serve as the ground.
GROUNDING:
6. Romex (plastic sheathed) Cable: If romex cable was used
to wire the electric box, connect the green ground wire
attached to the hanger ball and the green ground wire in
the Romex cable using a 72B listed wire nut.
6a. Conduit Pipe: If the wiring to the electrical box is enclosed
in electrical conduit pipe, connect the ground wire to the
ground screw in the electrical box.
