SAFETY TIPS.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, turn off the electricity to the fan at the main fuse box or circuit
panel before you begin the fan installation or before servicing the fan or installing accessories.
1.
Read all instructions and safety information carefully before installing your fan and save these instructions.
CAUTION: To avoid personal injury, the use of gloves may be necessary while handling fan parts with sharp edges.
2.
Make sure all electrical connections comply with Local Codes or Ordinances, the National Electrical Code, and
ANSI/NFPA 70-199. If you are unfamiliar with electrical wiring or if the house/building wires are different colors
than those referred to in the instructions, please use a qualified electrician.
3.
Make sure you have a location selected for your fan that allows clear space for the blades to rotate, and at
least seven (7) feet (2.13 meters) of clearance between the floor and the fan blade tips. The fan should be
mounted at least thirty (30) inches (76 centimeters) from walls or other upright structures.
The outlet box and ceiling support joist used must be securely mounted, and capable of supporting at least
35 pounds (16 kilograms). The box must be supported directly by the building structure. Use only UL
listed outlet boxes marked "FOR FAN SUPPORT."
4.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, mount to the outlet box marked
"Acceptable for Fan Support," and use the 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.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or personal injury, wire connectors provided with this fan are
designed to accept only one12 gauge house wire and two lead wires from the fan. If your house wire is larger than
12 gauge or there is more than one house wire to connect to the two fan lead wires, consult an electrician for the
proper size wire connectors to use.
5.
6.
7.
Electrical diagrams are for reference only. Light kits that are not packed with the fan must be UL listed and
marked suitable for use with the model fan you are installing. Switches must be UL general use switches.
Refer to the instructions packaged with the light kits and switches for proper assembly.
After installation is complete, check that all connections are absolutely secure.
After making electrical connections, spliced conductors should be turned upward and pushed carefully up
into the outlet box. The wires should be spread apart with the grounded conductor and the
equipment-grounding conductor on opposite sides of the outlet box.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock, fire and to prevent humming noise do not use this fan with any solid
state speed control device or control fan speed with a full range dimmer switch. [Using a full range dimmer switch to
control fan speed will cause a loud humming noise from fan.](Note: This fan is suitable for use with remote control
devices.)
8.
9.
Do not operate the reverse switch until the fan has come to a complete stop.
Do not insert anything between the fan blades while they are rotating.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend the blade arms during assembly or after installation.
Do not insert objects into the path of the blades.
WARNING: To avoid personal injury or damage to the fan and other items, be cautious when working around or
cleaning the fan.
10.
Do not use water or detergents when cleaning the fan or fan blades. A dry dust cloth or lightly dampened
cloth will be suitable for most cleaning.
WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, use only parts provided with this fan. The use of parts OTHER
than those provided with this fan will void the warranty.
NOTE: The important safety precautions and instructions appearing in the manual are not meant to cover all
possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that common sense and caution are
necessary factors in the installation and operation of this fan.

3. Installation Preparation.
To prevent personal injury and damage, ensure
that the hanging location allows the blades a
clearance of 7ft. (2.13m) from the floor and 30in.
(76cm) from any wall or obstruction.
This fan is suitable for room sizes up to 400 square
feet (37.2 square meters).
This fan can be mounted with a downrod
on a normal or vaulted ceiling. The hanging length
can be extended by purchasing a longer downrod
(0.5in./1.27cm diameter). After installing hanging
bracket, continue to Section 5 on page 4 for those
instructions. This fan can also be mounted with
flushmount installation only on a normal ceiling.
After installing hanging bracket, continue to Section
6 on page 5 for those instructions.

Remove existing fixture.
WARNING: When using an existing outlet box, be sure
the outlet box is securely attached to the building
structure and can support the full weight of the fan.
Ensure the outlet box is clearly marked "Suitable for Fan
Support." If not, it must be replaced with an approved
outlet box. Failure to do so can result in serious injury.
CAUTION: Be sure outlet box is grounded and that a
ground wire (green or bare) is present.
Install hanging bracket to outlet box using original
hanging bracket
screws, spring washers and flat washers provided
with new or original outlet box.* If installing on a

wiring around the back of the hanging bracket and
away from the bracket opening.
*Note: It is very important that you use the proper hardware
when installing the hanging bracket as this will support the fan.

Temporarily raise canopy to hanging bracket to
determine which 2 screws in hanging bracket align
with slotted holes in canopy, and then lower canopy
and partially loosen these 2 screws. Remove the other
2 screws and set aside.
Now, lift canopy to hanging bracket again, aligning
slotted holes in the canopy with loosened screws in
hanging bracket. Twist canopy to lock. Re-insert the
other 2 screws and secure all screws with Phillips
screwdriver.

9. Blade Assembly.
Time Saver: Washers for blade screws can be set
on each blade screw prior to installing blades.
motor housing
Locate 15 blade attachment screws and washers
in hardware pack. Hold blade arm up to blade
and align holes. Insert 3 blade attachment screws
(along with washers) with fingers first and then
tighten screws securely with a Phillips
screwdriver. Repeat for the remaining blades.
Remove blade arm screws and lock washers from
fan motor and set aside. Then, if applicable,
remove plastic motor locks and discard. Align
blade arm holes with motor screw holes and
attach blade arm with lock washers and blade
arm screws. Before securing screws permanently,

10. Testing Your Fan.
It is recommended that you test fan before finalizing
installation. Restore power from circuit box and light
switch (if applicable). Test fan speeds with the pull
chain located on the switch housing. Start at the OFF
position (no blade movement). First pull will set the
fan to HI. Second pull will set the fan to MEDIUM.
Third pull will set the fan to LOW. Fourth pull will
again will set the fan to OFF setting. If fan does not
function, please refer to "Troubleshooting" section to
solve any issues before contacting Customer Service.
Turn fan completely off before moving the reverse
switch. Set reverse switch to recirculate air depending
on the season:
- UP position in summer (diagram 1)
- DOWN position in winter (diagram 2)
A ceiling fan will allow you to raise your thermostat
setting in summer and lower your thermostat setting
in winter without feeling a difference in your comfort.
