1. SAFETY RULES
1. To avoid possible electric shock, turn
off the electricity at the main fuse box or
circuit panel before you begin the fan
installation or before servicing the fan or
installing accessories.
2. Read all instructions and safety
information carefully before installing
your fan and save these instructions.
3. Make sure all electrical connections
comply with local codes or ordinances as
well as the National Electrical Code. If
you are unfamiliar with electric wiring,
please use a qualified and licensed
electrician.
4. Make sure you have a location
selected for your fan which allows clear
space for the blades to rotate, and at least
seven (7) feet of clearance between the
floor and the fan blade tips.
5. To reduce the risk of fire, electric
shock, or other personal injury, mount fan
only on an outlet box or supporting system
marked acceptable for fan support of 350
lbs (15.9 kg) or less and use 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.
6. To reduce the risk of personal injury
use only approved hanging brackets and
screws supplied with the outlet box for
mounting to the outlet box.
7. After installation is complete, check
that all connections are absolutely secure.
Model #78525-xx: 18.7 lbs
Model #78605-xx: 27.18 lbs
10. Do not attempt to control the
operation of the fan (or an optional light
kit) from any wall control that is not
approved by Quorum for use with its fans.
Do not use solid state wall controls. The
use of any unapproved control voids the
fan's warranty.

8. Do not insert anything into the fan
blades while they are rotating.
9. Do not operate the reverse switch until
the fan has come to a complete stop.
2. UNPACKING YOUR FAN
Unpack your fan and check the contents. Do not discard the carton. If warranty
replacement or repair is ever necessary the fan should be returned in original packaging.
Remove all parts and hardware. Do not lay motor housing on its side - because the

3. MOUNTING OPTIONS
1. Disconnect the power by removing fuses
or turning off circuit breakers.
2. If there is an existing outlet box, ensure it
is clearly marked "Suitable for Fan Support".
If it is not so marked, it must be replaced
with an approved one.
WARNING:
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ELECTRIC SHOCK, FIRE, OR PERSONAL INJURY,
MOUNT THE FAN ONLY TO AN OUTLET MARKED ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT AND USE
MOUNTING SCREWS PROVIDED WITH THE OUTLET BOX.

4. Figures 1,2 and 3 are examples of
different ways to mount the outlet box in
different situations. A longer downrod may
be required in sloped ceiling situations to
maintain proper blade clearance.
5. To hang the fan in locations where no
ceiling joist is available, a hanger support bar
may be required (Figure 4). Quorum
distributes approved hanger support bars and
outlet boxes.

PROVIDED WITH THE FAN.
4. HANGING YOUR FAN
WARNING -Turn off the power!
DO NOT fasten the blades to the fan until
it is assembled and hanging from the
ceiling. To do so now will likely bend the
blade arms and almost certainly cause
wobble.

1. If not already affixed to the hanger
bracket, place the rectangular rubber isolators
between the hanger bracket and outlet box.
Secure the hanger bracket to the outlet box
using the 2 long steel screws supplied with
the outlex box.
2. Remove the set pin and safety lock clip
from the yoke on top of the motor assembly.
Slide the downrod through the canopy. (Fig.
5). Feed the wires from the fan motor
through the downrod assembly.
3. (Fig. 6) Attach the downrod assembly
(downrod and canopy) to the motor by
sliding the downrod into the yoke on top of
the motor assembly. Slide the set pin through
the hole in the yoke, downrod and secure it
with the safety lock clip. Tighten the set
screws on yoke. Feed the wires through the
downrod ball.
4. Lift the fan motor without the blades and
place into the hanger bracket, rotating the
ball until the groove engages the tab on the
hanger bracket. This locks the ball mount and
fan motor, preventing fan rotation during
operation. (Fig. 7)

2. (Fig. 8) Connect the BLACK building
supply wire to the BLACK and BLUE fan
wires. Connect the WHITE building
neutral wire to the WHITE fan neutral
wire. Connect the COPPER building
ground wire to the GREEN fan ground
wire.
Use ONLY wall controls approved by
Quorum. Use of unapproved wall
controls will cause unacceptable
humming noise, and avoids the fan
warranty.
BLUE
1. Spread the wires apart so that the black
and blue wires from the fan are on one
side of the mounting bracket and the white
wire and green ground wire are on the
other side.
3. Optional Wall Controls:
Wiring connections for optional wall
control are shown in Fig. 8a and 8b. Figure
8a shows how to wire a fan wall control
switch. This controls the fan only. To
separately control an optional light kit
using the light kit pull chain, you would
have to connect the blue wire from the fan
to the house supply wire, before it goes to
the wall control. This is not an easy
connection, and we suggest you call a
qualified electrician to do it for you.
BLK
Use the wire nuts supplied with your fan
when making connections. Secure the
connectors with electrical tape and make
sure there are no loose connections or wire
strands.

2. Blade Assembly & Installation (Fig. 10)
Using the supplied blade arm screws, attach
the blades to the blade arms. In some cases
the fiber washer is permanently fixed to the
screw head. Ensure all screws are used for
each blade. Next attach the blades to the
motor assembly using the supplied screws.
DO NOT bend the blade arms when
installing the blades.
3. Attaching the Control Cup (Fig. 11)
While holding the control cup under your
fan, snap together the wire connection
plugs. Carefully push all wires back into the
control cup, then install the control cup onto
the control cup plate with 3 screws
provided. Be sure to tighten all screws.

7. FAN OPERATION AND CARE
1. A ceiling fan is an environmentally
smart choice to cool as well as to help
warm your home or office. Adjust your
HVAC thermostat during fan use to save
additional energy and money on your air
conditioning and heating utility bills. You
should see a significant reduction in both
your heating and cooling costs by regular
use of your fan.
Do not hesitate to use your fan during
summer and winter months. In summer,
(Fig. 12) using the reverse switch, adjust
the fan's direction so cool air is blown
down, producing a cooling breeze. In
winter, (Fig. 13) reverse the fan so that an
upward airflow will push warm air off the
ceiling and circulate it downwards into the
living area. In winter months, use the fan
at a lower speed than summer.
2. Periodically check tightness of all
screws securing the blades to the blade
arm attachment points. A clicking or a
rattling noise is a sure indication of
loosening screws. Since screws will
invariably work loose over time, at least
once a year, tighten all the screws
attaching blades to blade arms. Do not
bend blade arms when cleaning or
servicing the fan.
3. Clean you fan periodically using only
a cloth dampened with a mild detergent
solution for all hardware - never use
solvents. The finish plating is lacquered to
prevent tarnishing. Use a lint-free cloth
with clean water to clean blades.
Fig. 12
4. You will never need to oil or lubricate
your fan. Its permanently sealed bearings
will provide trouble free, silent operation
for many years.
5. If repairs or servicing are ever
required, to avoid possible electric shock,
turn off the electricity at the main fuse
or circuit panel before you begin.
Fig. 13
WINTER
8. TROUBLESHOOTING
FAN WILL NOT START
1. Check that the electricity has been
turned on at the circuit breaker which had
probably been turned off during
installation.
2. Turn off the electricity. Check all
connections in the wiring of the fan at the
ceiling and make sure it follows the
wiring instructions outlined in this
manual.
NOISE
Note: Always allow a day or two "run-in"
time for any new fan at medium or high
speed. When attempting to diagnose
noise, listen carefully from several sides
to try and isolate the location of the noise
(blade, upper end, motor, light kit, etc.)
1. Tighten all screws attaching blades to
blade arms. Remember to tighten these
screws at least once a year because they
may loosen slowly over time and cause a
clicking noise.
2. Turn off the power. Loosen the
canopy and check that the wiring and/or
wire nut connectors are not resting against
the canopy, possibly vibrating while the
fan is on.
3. Use of a standard light rheostat or an
unapproved fan wall control to control the
fan speed will always cause an annoying
"hum". Many fan motors do not work
quietly with solid state variable speed
controls.
4. Check that the rubber gasket on the
mounting bracket has been installed if
called for in the installation instructions.
EXCESSIVE WOBBLE
Note: A small amount of wobble is
considered acceptable and should not be
considered a defect.
1. Make certain all blades are tightly
attached to each blades' respective blade
arm.
5. Check that the canopy in not touching
the ceiling.
6. Check that all screws on the motor
housing and the bottom housing are tight.
FAN TURNS, BUT DOES NOT MOVE
MUCH AIR
1. The fan may be running in reverse.
The reverse switch located on the control
cup. (see Fig. 14)
2. The distance from the ceiling to the
blades may be too small. For downrod
fans, optimal placement would be 8-9 feet
from the floor.
3. The room may contain items which
obstruct the air flow.
4. The fan may be too small for the size
of the room.
