Safety and Precautions
Your safety and the safety of others is a primary concern to Chief Industries, Inc. This manual was
written to assist in the safe installation and operation of the Caldwell Fan.
It is your responsibility as the owner, builder, operator, or supervisor to know what specific
requirements, precautions and hazards exist and to make these known to all personnel working with
equipment or on the jobsite so that they can observe any necessary safety precautions.
All personnel, including the installation crew, must read and understand the information contained in
this manual before starting construction. Chief Industries, Inc. is not responsible or liable for the
misuse of equipment or operation of personnel or equipment in an unsafe manner.
Chief Industries, Inc. assumes no liability with respect to proper construction and inspection, assembly,
or use of its products established under applicable laws, all of which is the sole responsibility of the
purchaser and those authorized for the installation.
Follow all local and federal safety laws and regulations. Verify that all equipment and personnel
conform to any applicable jurisdiction regulations.
Work Area Safety Statement
To ensure the safety of all individuals in the work area, only authorized and trained persons shall install,
maintain and use the Caldwell Fan.
Under no circumstances should unauthorized individuals be allowed to trespass or be present in the
work area.
It shall be the duty of all operators to ensure that the work area is clean, organized and kept free of all
debris and tools that might cause an accidental tripping or falling hazard.
Special care should be taken when working from unsafe heights. Common sense dictates that when
conditions such as rain or wind prohibit the safe use of equipment, the installation be discontinued.
Chief Industries, Inc. strongly recommends that equipment meeting the current specifications be used,
whether the individual operator is required by law to do so or not. Proper climbing equipment and a
secured safety harness should be used at all times when performing operations work, installation or
maintenance.
Field modifications without the authorization of the manufacturer may present unknown dangers to the
operator and must be avoided.
Auxiliary Equipment Safety
You may decide to purchase and install “auxiliary equipment” made by other manufacturers. Chief
Industries, Inc. has no control over the design and manufacture of this equipment. In view of this, at a
minimum, we suggest you do the following:
Chief Industries, Inc. 800-359-7600

1. Obtain, read and understand the instructions and safety cautions of the auxiliary equipment
manufacturer. Be certain that all equipment is installed in agreement with those instructions.
2. Check with Chief Industries, Inc. to verify that your system is designed to support any additional
loads supplied by the auxiliary equipment.
3. Obtain any applicable safety decals from the manufacturer and make certain they are displayed
in a visible location.
4. Make certain that all electrical equipment is properly installed and grounded by a qualified
electrician.
5. Check availability and operation of electrical lock out and emergency stop systems.
6. Be certain that all guards and shields are securely in place.
7. Store all operation / maintenance manuals in a safe place for future use.
Fan Safety
Before operating the unit, perform the following checks:
1. Verify the fan and transition units are bolted securely together. Verify the screen guard is secured in
place.
2. Verify the units are wired in compliance with the national electrical code, and the ground wire is of
sufficient size to provide lightening protection.
3. Provide sufficient bin exhaust vents or fans, and verify that they are open and operational before

Installation Requirements
The following illustration describes the components necessary for a typical installation. The drying unit
(fan, heater, and transition) should be located such that the heated air can enter the bin plenum chamber
uniformly. Verify all the components needed for the drying system are present. The fan and fan should
be located opposite the unloading tube for best air distribution.
Fan Location and Foundation
The following illustration shows a typical installation of 2 drying units and optional plenum controls. If
two drying units are used on the same bin, locate them 4’ (1.21m) to within 45° of each other and
Chief Industries, Inc. 800-359-7600 INSTALLATION - 740548

centered opposite the unloading tube. Locate any humidistat or thermostat control between the two fan
units, making sure control senses heat from both units (order kit #9735035).
For proper operation of fan, the units are to be mounted on a level pad. The pad should be the same
height as the concrete floor. The size of the pad should be as indicated in the following illustration. The
fan should not be anchored to the pad but allowed to float on the pad. When the fan is fastened to the
transition or heater the fan legs should be evenly supported on the concrete pad. If necessary use shims
under the fan legs so that the fan cannot vibrate.

Wall Adaptor Installation:
Alternatively, Caldwell axial fans can be mounted to a building wall with a wall adaptor flange. For this
type of installation, the concrete fan pad should be located 3.0” (7.62cm) from the building wall and1.5”
(3.81cm) below the floor of the building.
Fan Installation:
Before installing the fan please verify the following:
1. The fan blade revolves freely and does not interfere with the housing. If there is interference the
motor will need to be shimmed using the instructions found in the maintenance section of this
manual. Afterwards check all the fasteners on the fan to verify they have the proper clearance and
tighten as required.
2. The fan is installed correctly to provide airflow in the proper direction. Check air flow decals on the
fan to verify it is oriented properly. In most applications fans are installed to force air up through the
stored grain. This operating condition is referred to as a “positive” aeration system. For this
operation condition the screen guard is mounted on the end of the fan opposite the blade. The axial
fans can be installed to pull air down through the stored grain. This operating condition is referred to
as a “negative” aeration system. For this operating condition the screen guard needs to be moved to
the blade end of the fan housing.
3. Connect the fan to the transition or flanged adaptor with bolts provided in the fan hardware package.
The end of the fan opposite the screen guard will mount to the transition.

Electrical Installation
The electrical installation must be performed by a certified electrician, in accordance with the
appropriate national and local electrical codes. Note: Any violation of electrical wiring codes
could jeopardize the Caldwell standard limited warranty.
Electrical Service Sizing
Check the type of electrical service and make sure the fan to be wired is manufactured to operate on the
appropriate service. The following table “Fan Model Specifications” indicates the electrical service the
fan is designed to utilize in the columns labeled “Phase & Voltage”. The electrical service must match
this specification. Note: the Caldwell 3 Phase 230 volt and 460 volt fans can be wired / converted for
either voltage.

The components to connect the electrical service to the fan need to be sized for the electrical service
present. The following tables illustrate the component sizing information for single phase 230 volt, 3
phase 230 volt and 3 phase 460 volt, and 3 phase 575 volt respectively.



Transformer size is based on current draw from the fan only. Your electrician will need to add the KVA
requirements for other components of the system in sizing the transformer.
Copper wire (rated 75°C) is sized for the fan service. The wire size from the transformer to the
disconnect service will be determined from the fan and the other electrical equipment requirements.
A disconnect for the fan needs to be sized to handle the recommended time delay fuse or circuit breaker
size.

Electrical service examples:
1. Transformer example: For an F18-312 fan, the single phase 230 volt table would be used. The KVA
rating for the 3 horsepower motor is 4.5 KVA. This KVA rating is for the fan only. Your electrician
will need to add the KVA requirements for the other electrical components of the system in sizing the
transformer.
2. Fan disconnect example: For an F18-312 fan, the single phase 230 volt table would be used, and the fuse
/ breaker size is 30 amp. Note that a circuit breaker can be used, however, the circuit breaker or any
fuse used, must be a time delay type sized to allow for the initial starting in-rush current to the fan.
3. Conductor size example: The conductor size for the fan needs to be sized according to the distance
between the fan and disconnect. For an F18-312 fan located 200’ (60.9m) from the disconnect, the
single phase 230 volt table would be used. The conductor size should be #6 AWG. The proper sized
wiring must be used to make sure a voltage drop is not developed.
Electrical Connection at the Fan
1. Single Phase
a. When a 115 volt accessory is to be used with the axial fan, a 4 wire system should be provided
for fans operated on single phase power. The 4 wires consist of the 2 current carrying
conductors, a grounded neutral, and a ground. When 115 Volt accessory equipment is not used
a 3 wire system can be utilized. In this case the grounded neutral wire is not required. The
current carrying conductors are to be connected securely to terminals L1 and L2 of the
contactor as shown in the following illustration. The contactor is located in the control
enclosure. The ground wire is secured to the terminal in the control enclosure labeled “G”.
i.
b. With the power locked out and tagged out at the fan disconnect, the motor lead wires will need
to be exchanged and then securely connected to the outlet terminal of the contactor T1 and T2
as shown in the following illustration. Note that this figure illustrates the proper connection of
the motor lead wires for the counterclockwise rotation of the fan blade. The location of lead
wires is based on the lead wire marking for motors labeled per the NEMA standard. Refer to
the motor serial plate for the specific wiring connections and which wires are interchanged to
reverse rotation direction. The unit will then need to be rechecked for proper rotation. Provide

develops airflow in the direction that the decal on the fan housing illustrates.
i.
2. 3 Phase
a. When a 115 volt accessory is to be used with the axial fan a 5 wire system should be provided
for fans operated on 3 phase 230 volt power. The 5 wires consist of 3 current carrying
conductors, a grounded neutral and a ground. When 115 volt accessory equipment is not used,
or the fan is operated on 460 volt 3 phase power or 575 volt 3 phase power, a 4 wire system can
be utilized. The 4 wires consist of 3 current carrying conductors and a ground. In this case the
grounded neutral wire is not required. The current carrying conductors are to be connected
securely to terminals L1, L2 and L3 of the contactor as shown in the following illustration. The
contactor is located in the control enclosure. The ground wire is secured to the terminal in the
control enclosure labeled “G”.
i.

Operating Instructions
When the fan is to be started for the first time, or after the fan has been idle for an extended period of
time, the following checks should be made prior to starting the fan.
1. With the power locked out and tagged out at the disconnect switch, rotate the fan blade to make sure
it revolves easily and does not rub on the housing.
2. Check all the fasteners to make sure they are tight. If any are loose, check for proper clearance and
retighten fasteners. Make sure the screen guard is fastened securely.
3. With power locked out and tagged out at the disconnect switch, check all electrical connections to
make sure they are tight. Inspect the current carrying wires to make sure they are not grounded.
Make sure the control enclosure cover is secured in place.
4. Refer to the appropriate wiring diagram to verify the fan is wired correctly.
Start-Up Procedure:
The single phase 230 volt axial fans listed below use a permanent-split phase capacitor start motor. The
start switch and start capacitors have been eliminated for trouble free operation. The permanent-split
phase capacitor start motor is referred has a “slow start” motor because it comes up to speed much
slower than a capacitor start single phase motor. When the fan is started, allow the motor time to
accelerate to full speed without turning the power off. Note: Do not continue short multiple starts as
overheating of the motor could result.

closes, the fan will not restart by itself, the toggle will need to be moved to the
“START” position to start the unit again. Note: If the motor thermal protector
activates to shut off the fan refer to the service section for determining the cause of the
thermal protector activating.
2. 575 Voltage Fans
a. On 575 volt units, the fan is started by pushing in the switch button on the control
enclosure marked “START”. When the fan begins to start the button should be
released. The fan will continue to operate until the “STOP” button is pushed in, or until
the internal motor thermal protection interrupts the power by opening the circuit. With
the motor thermal protection in the open position the fan cannot be started by pushing
the “START” button in. When the motor thermal protector closes, the fan will not
restart by itself, the “START” button will need to be pushed in to start the unit again.
Note: If the motor thermal protector activates to shut off the fan refer to the service
section for determining the cause of the thermal protector activating.
Shut-Down Procedure:
1. When shutting the fan down for the season, shut off the power at the fan disconnect rather than at the
fan controls to provide additional protection from unauthorized personnel operating the fan, and
potential damage to the fan from a lightning strike. Refer to the maintenance section for off season
operation recommendations.
Maintenance
The following procedures should be followed and maintenance performed before starting the unit at the
beginning of every season, and also during operation.
Off Season Operation:
During the off season, the fan blade should be allowed to turn freely. Also, during the off season,
operate the fan for approximately 30 minutes every 3 weeks. The operation of the fan keeps the
lubricant evenly distributed within the bearing cavity and removes condensation from the motor.
Fan Controls:
During the off season, make sure the control enclosure cover is secured to the control enclosure.
Before operating, the magnetic contactor should be inspected to make sure all contact points are clean
and unobstructed. Also, check points for pitting and replace the magnetic contactor if the points are
defective.

Fan Motor:
The life span of the motor is dependent on proper bearing maintenance. Before lubricating the
bearings, inspect the bearings to make sure they are still in good condition. If not, the bearings will
need to be replaced. The fan motor uses sealed bearings, however, the bearing cavity should still be
lubricated. The motor should be lubricated once a year prior to the operating season per the following
instructions. Note: The lubricants listed below are designed to operate at high temperature and have a
rust inhibitor for extended bearing life. Do not mix other grease types with these lubricants. In
addition do not over lubricate the bearings as the lubricant will work its way into the motor and cause
premature motor failure.


To lubricate a motor with filler and drain holes, remove both plugs and clean the holes of any hardened
lubricants. Approximately three standard pumps of Shell Dolium R or Chevron SRI-2 lubricant should
be added. Allow the motor to run for approximately 10 minutes before reinstalling the drain plug.
To lubricate a motor without filler and drain holes, first clean out any hardened grease, and then add the
Shell Dolium R or Chevron SRI-2 lubricant to fill ¾ of the cavity of the end bell.
Fan Blades:
Clean the fan blade so the unit runs smoothly. This should be done once per year or as needed if
vibration develops. Also check the fan to make sure it is mounted properly. Refer to the previous
installation instructions for instructions on leveling the fan.
If, in servicing the fan, you determine that the fan blade will need to be removed from the motor shaft,
refer to the following instructions to make sure the reassembled fan will perform properly.


When reassembling the fan blade on the motor shaft verify the blade is centered in the fan housing.
Shim motor to center the fan blade if required.
When tightening the tapered bushing hardware, tighten the bolts gradually by continually working in a
circle turning each fastener slightly. Finally, torque the bolts to the following specifications:
o F12 = 60 lb (27.21 kg)
o F14 = 60 lb (27.12 kg)
o F18-1 = 80 lb (36.28 kg)
o F18-3 = 100 lb (45.35 kg)
o F24 = 100 lb (45.35 kg)
o F28 = 100 lb (45.35 kg)
Servicing the Fan:
The following will help you find any problems that may occur in the fan unit and includes tips for
repair. For servicing of electrical systems, open the control box cover. Inside the cover you will find a
wiring schematic to help you service the unit. In the checks shown below, locate the symptoms you are
experiencing with your unit and follow the list of corresponding possible causes and remedies:

Note: Unless otherwise indicated, checks are made with the power off using a voltmeter on resistance
setting.
Condition Specific Faults:
1. Symptom: Toggle switch does not turn fan on.
a. Verify power is available to the fan unit.
b. Check overload protection to determine if the control circuit is open or closed.
i. If the thermostat is open, verify the overload device has had a chance to cool if
the fan has recently shut off. The overload circuit will automatically close when
the unit is cooled. If not, the thermostat will need to be replaced in the motor.
1. The thermostat wires (J wires) can be traced from the motor to terminal
L1 and the toggle switch.
c. Check the toggle switch. If switch is defective, replace.
i. The toggle switch circuit should be checked in the “OFF”, “RUN”, and
“START” positions. The top left side and top right side of the toggle switch
should be metered to the bottom of the toggle switch to determine if the circuit
is open or closed.
1. In the “OFF” position, both sides should be open.
2. In the “RUN” position, the left side should be closed and the right side
should be open.
3. With the toggle switch held in the “START” position, both sides should
be closed.
d. Check holding coil. If coil is defective, replace.
i. Verify power from L2 on the contactor to the holding coil.
ii. Verify power going from L1 through the motor thermostat wires and the toggle
switch. If power is available at the coil, the coil is defective.
e. Verify that the contact set is not restricted from closing.
2. Symptom: Fan motor hums and does not run.
a. Check to make sure that all leads of your power source have voltage present. If fan unit
is not receiving power on all leads, check for a blown fuse, broken wire, or loose
connection.
b. Check to see that all contact sets are closing. If one leg of the supply voltage is not
available to the motor, the motor will hum.
i. Remove the front cover from the contactor, turn the fan unit on and watch to
see that all contacts close. If all contacts do not close, clean or replace contactor.
c. If power is available at all the motor leads and the motor still hums, then the motor
should be taken to an authorized Service Center for repair or replacement.
i. The power can be hooked directly to the motor leads (for testing), if the motor
hums, replace or repair the motor.

3. Symptom: Fan operates when the toggle switch is held in the “START” position but shuts off
when the toggle switch is in the “RUN” position.
a. Check steps referenced above in Symptom “Toggle switch does not turn fan on”.
b. Check the auxiliary switch; locate on the side of the contactor. (If defective, replace
auxiliary switch. Refer to “replacement parts” to determine the part required.
i. With the power supply OFF remove the front plate from the contactor and
verify the auxiliary switch is open. Switch should close when the contact sets are
pushed in. Circuit is checked by measuring the resistance across the auxiliary
switch.
4. Symptom: Fan only operates at half speed.
a. Take the motor to an authorized service center for repair or replacement.
5. Symptom: Fan Starts and operates for brief period of time than shuts off.
a. Check the supply voltage. Voltage should be within 10% of rated voltage. For example,
a motor rated at 230 volts should operate in a voltage range of 207 to 253 Volts.
b. Check the supply wire sizes required for the fan unit.
c. Check the load on the main circuit to make sure other items on the main circuit are not
overloading the fan circuit.
d. Check the amperage of the fan, if the unit is pulling amperage above what is specified on
the serial plate; take the motor to an Authorized Service Center.
6. Symptom: Fan operates when main power supply is turned on.
a. The top two terminals of the toggle switch should be checked. If the circuit is closed
between the two terminals, the toggle switch should be replaced.
b. Check the contact points by removing the front from the contactor to see if the contacts
are locked in or welded in place. If so, the complete contactor should be replaced.
