If you are installing multiple remote-controlled
fans on the same circuit breaker,
you may need to perform a few extra steps to
prevent interference or faulty operation of your
remote controls.
Go to www.HunterFan.com/FAQs and click
“How do I properly install multiple remotecontrolled fans?” for more information.
Time Saver Tip: Get a helper
to insert grommets, found in
the
hardware bag, into the
blades while you’re doing the
next couple of steps.
Remove the shipping blocks from the
motor. Save the screws. They will be
needed for blade iron installation.
Note: Some fans will have a shipping
ring instead of shipping blocks. Please
remove the ring and save the screws.

Lightly attach the blade irons to the
motor with the blade iron armature
screws, then securely tighten after both
screws are attached.
Your blades are shielded with Dust Armor® which
is a nanotechnology coating that repels dust. For
cleaning the fan, use soft brushes or cloths to prevent
scratching. Cleaning agents may damage the finishes.
