SAFETY RULES
1. Before you begin installing the fan, shut power off at the circuit breaker of the fuse box.
2. Be cautious! Read all instructions and safety information before installing your new fan. Review accompanying assembly diagrams.
3. Make sure that all electrical connections comply with local codes, ordinances, or National Electrical Codes. Hire a qualified electrician or consult a
do-it-yourself wiring handbook if you are unfamiliar with installing electrical wiring.
4. 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 and 18 inches from the tip of the blades to the wall.
5. If you are mounting the fan to a ceiling fan outlet box, use a U.L. Listed metal octagonal outlet box marked "Acceptable for Fan Support". Secure the
box directly to the building structure. The outlet box and its support must be able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds) Do
not use a plastic box.
6. Caution: To reduce the risk of injury use only the screws provided with the outlet box in conjunction with the lock washers provided with the fan.
7. If you are mounting the fan to a joist, make sure it is able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds).
8. After you install the fan, make sure that all mounting components are secured to prevent the fan from falling.
9. Do not insert anything into the fan blades while the fan is operating.
10. Turn the fan off and wait for the blades to stop completely before performing any maintenance or cleaning.
NOTE: The important safeguards and instructions appearing in this manual are not meant to cover all possible conditions and situations that may

frequency change is necessary, should you desire to install another fan
within the same home or area with a seperate frequency code please see
the "frequency interference" troubleshooting section of this instruction
manual to learn how to change the frequency.
NOTE: If your ceiling fan features an UP Light: Connect the ORANGE wire
from the fan to the ORANGE wire marked "For Up Light" from the
Receiver. Otherwise disregard this step and proceed to secure all wire
connections with the plastic wire nuts provided. (Fig. 4)
Note: Fan must be installed from a maximum distance of 40 feet from
the transmitting unit for proper signal transmission between the
transmitting unit and the fan's receiving unit.
Step 1. Receiver to House Supply Wires Electrical Connections:
Connect the WHITE wire (Neutral) from the outlet box to the WHITE
wire marked "AC in N" from the receiver. Connect the BLACK wire
(Hot) from the outlet box to the BLACK wire marked "AC in L" from
the receiver. Secure all wire connections with the plastic wire nuts
provided. (Fig. 4)
Step 2. Connect the fans ground wire (green) located on the mounting
bracket to the household ground wire. Secure wire connection with the

BLADE INSTALLATION
THE FOLLOWING OPERATION MUST BE ACCOMPLISHED BEFORE INSTALLING THE GLASS SHADE.
Step 1. Insert the blades into the motor housing blade slots, push blade until it stops. You should be
able to hear the inside safety pin drop into the blade hole to secure the blade in place. (Fig. 6)
CAUTION: Re-check each blade to make sure all blades are secured to the motor by holding the blade
from the tip and gently pulling it outwards. The blades should be snug to the motor housing
without any up, down or sideways play.
All blade sets are grouped by weight. Because plastic injection varies in density, the fan may wobble
even though the blades are weight matched.

INSTALLING THE LIGHT BULB & GLASS SHADE
WARNING: Shut off the power supply before removing or replacing lamp. In handling of halogen
bulb, care should be taken not to touch it with your bare hands. Oil residue will shorten the life of the
halogen bulb. If you accidentally come into contact, wipe thoroughly with a clean, lint-free, cotton cloth.
Allow the bulb to cool for 10 minutes before changing the bulb. Use light bulb in accordance with the fan's
specification. DO NOT EXCEED THE MAXIMUM WATTAGE RATING.
Step 1. Install 1x100W halogen bulb (included) into bulb socket. (Fig. 8)
Step 2. Raise glass shade up against bottom of fan housing and secure it to the fan by turning the glass
shade clockwise until snug. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN. (Fig. 8)
NOTE: The metal light cover included with your fan is an option to replace the glass for the light in the
event that you prefer not to use the light feature of your fan. The metal light cover is not necessary for
the light operation; it can be saved for later use if desired.

CARE OF YOUR FAN
Here are some suggestions to help maintain your fan.
1. Because of the fan's natural movement some connections may become
loose. Check the support connections, brackets and blade attachments
twice a year. Make sure they are secure. (It is not necessary to remove
fan from the ceiling).
2. Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over
the years. Use only a soft brush or lint free cloth to avoid scratching the
finish. Plated finishes are sealed with lacquer to minimize discoloration
or tarnishing. Do not use water when cleaning, this could damage the
motor, wood blades or possibly cause an electrical shock.
3. Use a lint free lightly damp cloth or duster to remove dust from the
blades.
4. There is no need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently lubricated
bearings.
5. If your fan is provided with glass shades, clean with lukewarm soapy water
and a soft cloth or sponge. DO NOT IMMERSE GLASS SHADES IN HOT WATER.
DO NOT PUT GLASS SHADES INTO AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.
WARNING!
MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF AT THE
ELECTRICAL PANEL BOX BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT
ANY REPAIRS. REFER TO THE SECTION,
"ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS".
