screws. If you used grommets, the blades may appear slightly loose
after screws are tightened. This is normal.
6-3. Remove the blade mounting screws and rubber shipping bumpers
from the motor. Note: Some blade mounting screws are installed
in the motor to secure shipping blocks.
6-4. For each blade, insert one blade mounting screw through the
blade iron, and attach lightly to the fan. Insert the second blade
mounting screw, then securely tighten both mounting screws.

8 • Operating and Cleaning Your Ceiling Fan
8-1. Turn on electrical power to the fan.
8-2. The fan pull chain controls power to the fan. The pull chain has
four settings in sequence: High, Medium, Low and Off.
• Pull the chain slowly to change settings.
• Release slowly to prevent the chain from recoiling into the
blades.
• The chain uses a breakaway connector that separates if the
chain is jerked. If this happens, simply reinsert the chain into
the connector.
8-3. Ceiling fans work best by blowing air downward (counterclockwise
blade rotation) in warm weather to cool the room with a direct
breeze. In winter, having the fan draw air upward (clockwise blade
rotation) will distribute the warmer air trapped at the ceiling
around the room without causing a draft.
In warm weather, use
downward air flow pattern
8-4. For cleaning finishes, use a soft brush or lint-free cloth to prevent
scratching. A vacuum cleaner brush nozzle can remove heavier
dust. Remove surface smudges or accumulated dirt and dust using
a mild detergent and a slightly dampened cloth. You may use
an artistic agent, but never abrasive cleaning agents as they will
damage the finish.
8-5. Clean wood finish blades with a furniture polishing cloth.
Occasionally, apply a light coat of furniture polish for added
protection and beauty. Clean painted and high-gloss blades in the
same manner as the fan finish.
In cold weather, use upward
air flow pattern
To Change Airflow Direction
Turn the fan off and let it come to a complete
stop. Slide the reversing switch on the fan to the
opposite position. Restart fan.
