Turn off and let fan stop before changing setting of the reverse slide switch.
Your ceiling fan is a sensible choice to cool as well as help you warm your living area.
You will have a reduction in both heating and cooling costs by regular use of your fan.
In summer, put the reverse switch in the forward position so air is blown down,
producing a cooling breeze. In winter, reverse the fan so an upward airflow will push
warm air off the ceiling and balance the temperature in the room. In winter, run the fan
at lower speed than in the summer.

The fan natural movements may cause some connections to work loose. A
clicking or rattling noise is a certain sign of loosening screws. Check the support
connections, brackets and blade attachment twice a year, and tighten all screws
as necessary. Make sure all screws attaching the glass screws are tightened.
Clean your fan periodically. Use only a cloth dampened with a mild detergent
solution. Never use solvents. Dust with a soft cloth or brush. Metal finishes are
finished with a lacquer to prevent tarnishing.
You will never need to oil your fan. Its permanently sealed bearing will prevent
silent, trouble free operation for many years.
Make sure the power is turned off at the main fuse or circuit panel before you
attempt any repairs.

Always takel a few days” break in” time for any new fan at medium or high speed.
Try to diagnose the exact location of the noise by listening carefully from several
sides (blades, motor, light kit, etc). Fan noise can come from a light kit.
Make sure all screws in the fan assembly and light kit are tight and properly
threaded. If not, back out and retighten. Tighten these screws at least once a year
because they may loosen slowly over time and cause clicking noise.
Make sure the light kit is securely fastened to the fan, and all glass screws are
finger tightened only. Do not tighten with pliers or a screwdriver.
Make sure mounting bracket is installed snugly to junction box.
Make sure wire nuts in switch housing or canopy are not rattling against each
other or against wall of housing. Wrap with electrical tape if necessary.
Use of standard light rheostat or unapproved wall control will always cause
harmonic distortions, or a humming noise. Many fan motors do not work quietly
with solid-state variable controls. If a quiet wall control is desired, use only
approved wall controls.
Make sure the canopy is not touching the ceiling.
Assure that the screws fastening blade holders to motor are tight
Make sure all light bulbs are fully screwed in.
FAN TURNS BUT DOES NOT MOVE MUCH AIR
1.
2.
3.
The fan may be running in reverse, so air is directed upward.
The room may contain items that obstruct the airflow.
The fan may be too small for the size of the room.
FAN SHAKES OR WOBBLES
1.
2.
3.
4.
A small amount of wobble is considered acceptable and should not be
considered a defect. Use of any light kit, especially a large 4 or 5 light kit, will
usually induce some wobble.
Make sure mounting bracket is tight at junction box/ceiling with no movement at
all. Tighten screws if necessary.
Make sure all screws holding the blades to the blade arm and blade arm to
motor are tight. Also, make sure light/glass screws are tight
Some fan movement is normal. However, interchanging an adjacent (side by
side) blade pair may redistribute the weight and result in smoother operation, as

If the above does not eliminate the wobble, clip a balancing kit on any one of
blade about the middle of blade edge. Let fan run. If it is still wobbling, stop the
fan, and change the location. Repeating this procedure on the remaining blades
until the wobble is removed.
You can also look up at the fan from below, make sure that none of the blade
holders are bent so that a blade is out of position. Correction may be made by
GENTLY bending the blade holder back into position.
Blade tracking may be checked simply by use of a household yardstick as
shown in below Figure. Place the yardstick vertically against the ceiling and even
with the outside leading edge of a blade. Note the distance of the edge of a
blade same as others. Turn the blade slowly by hand to check the remaining
blades. If a blade us in an alignment, the blade holder may be gently bent up or
down to be in line with the other blades.
