To begin with, the site of installation must be clear of any obstructions. Walls, cabinet or cupboard doors,
and AC/heating vents (strong air currents will cause fan to wobble ) are common obstructions.
Also, you will need a securely mounted outlet box that is listed for fan support.
The only tools you will need are : A medium Phillips screwdriver, common sense, and a little caution.
I. Inventory the parts. Remove all of the parts from the top
styrofoam and remove the styrofoam. Use this top piece to
support the fan during preliminary assembly.
A. Remove all parts from plastic bags,

Preliminary Assembly.
Screw
A. Snap together blade and blade iron. Note the side of the
blade you want to show. Using the 3/16"-32x5/16" blade
screws, and 9/16" metal washers, three of each per blade,
secure blade to blade iron. Repeat this procedure with the
rest of the blades. You will have at least one screw, one metal
washer, and one rubber washer left over, these are spares.
Be sure all of the screws are tight. Fig. 2
B.1. Take the ball & downrod and loosen the set
screw in the ball. Remove the pin and the ball
from the downrod. (If you have a longer
downrod, use it now.) See Fig. 3

2. Feed the three wires from the top of the fan
through the downrod and thread the downrod
into the coupler. Align the holes in the downrod
with the holes in the coupler. See Fig. 4
Fig. 4
3. Insert the threaded pin and tighten it and the set
screw.
4. Place the canopy around the downrod. Slide
the ball onto the downrod and replace pin. See
Fig. 5
Fig. 5
5. Raise the ball so that the pin is in the slot and
tighten the set screw. See Fig. 6
Fig. 6
6. Make sure all of the screws are tight. At this time you may want to shorten the wires from the fan to 6"
from the ball. This helps when you tuck the wires into outlet box.
Fig. 7
C.1. Remove the two (2) 1/8"-32x1/4" canopy screws from hanging bracket.
The canopy / hanging bracket should be in two halves. Fig. 7
WARNING - To Reduce The Risk Of Fire, Electric Shock, Or Personal
Injury Mount Fan To An Outlet Box Marked "Acceptable For Fan
Support" And Use The Mounting Screws Provided With The Outlet Box.
2. Take the bracket half (Fig. 7B.) and secure it to the outlet box (marked Acceptable For Fan Support)
using the mounting screws provided with the outlet box. Tighten them evenly.
Fig. 7B
3. Make sure all of the wires are accessible and are not being pinched.
Also, make sure the bracket doesn't wobble.

Now to hang the fan motor...
Fig. 8
Holding the fan carefully, lift it up to hanging bracket.
Place the ball into cradle of the bracket. Turn the entire
motor assembly until it locks into place. The tab on the
bracket must be in the groove in the ball. Make sure the
wires are not being pinched.
IV.
Wiring methods and instructions.
There are three common wiring methods; choose the one best suited to your needs. Keep in mind, the
supply wire colors may vary. (The wire colors in parentheses are commonly found in existing structures.)
Use the large orange wirenuts to make the connections. It is a good idea to wire the blue light kit wire
now, even if you don't have a light kit. It may save you some trouble in the future.
A. Pull chain operation only.
1. Green ground wires to outlet box ground (bare)
2. Black and blue wires from fan to hot supply (black)
3. White wire from fan to neutral supply (white)

Now tuck the wires and wirenuts carefully into outlet box. Make sure wirenuts remain tightly on connections.
If you have a Gulf Coast Remote Control, fan should be wired according to method A.
Method B can be used with two separate controls for the fan and light, or with a combination wall control,
such as a 423L Gulf Coast control.

V. With the motor in place and the wires out of the way, place the
cover half up to the bracket half. Insert the canopy screws into the
canopy / hanging bracket and tighten the screws.
VI. To avoid scratching the switch cup or damaging the motor, do not run
the fan without blades. So, the next step is to mount the blade
assemblies on the motor. The easiest way to do this is to insert a
motor screw into one hole on the base of the blade iron; hold it in
place with a screwdriver and lift blade assembly into place. Fig. 13.
Start this screw in an appropriate hole in motor. Now insert another
into the other hole and tighten both screws. Repeat this with the rest
of the blade assemblies, and retighten all of the screws.
VII. You're just about done now. The switch cup is the last step, and it's
simple. Notice the wire connectors in the switch cup and on the motor.
They are color coded and notched to fit only one way. Check the pins in
both connectors for alignment as shown in fig. 14. Push the connectors
together and make sure none of the pins get pushed out. Position the
switch cup on the switch cup plate, aligning the three holes in each.
Insert the three switch cup screws and tighten. Fig. 15.

Turn the power supply back on and prepare to be comfortable.
IX. The first pull of the chain will give you high speed. The second is medium speed, and the third is low
speed. Once again will turn it off.
With the reverse switch in the down position, the fan will provide downward air movement and positive
air flow to cool you in the hot season. In the up position, air movement is upward and will bring heat
trapped at the ceiling , down around the rooms walls, warming you in the cold season.
*DO NOT ATTEMPT TO REVERSE THE FAN WHILE BLADES ARE IN MOTION*
