READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS
Your new Hunter® ceiling fan is an addition to your home or office that will provide comfort and
performance for many years. This installation and operation manual gives you complete instructions for
installing and operating your fan.
We are proud of our work. We appreciate the opportunity to supply you with the best ceiling fan available

Cautions and Warnings
• Read this entire manual carefully before beginning installation. Save these instructions.
• Use only Hunter replacement parts.
• To reduce the risk of personal injury, attach the fan directly to the support structure of the building
according to these instructions, and use only the hardware supplied.
• To avoid possible electrical shock, before installing your fan, disconnect the power by turning off the
circuit breakers to the outlet box and associated wall switch location. If you cannot lock the circuit
breakers in the off position, securely fasten a prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service
panel.
• All wiring must be in accordance with national and local electrical codes and ANSI/NFPA 70. If you are
unfamiliar with wiring, use a qualified electrician.
• To reduce the risk of personal injury, do not bend the blade attachment system when installing,
balancing, or cleaning the fan. Never insert foreign objects between rotating fan blades.
• To reduce the risk of fire, electrical shock, or motor damage, do not use a solid-state speed control with
this fan. Use only Hunter speed controls.
• This product conforms to UL STD 507 and is certified to STD C22.2 No.113.
• Wash your hands after your fan installation is complete.

Pre-Installation
Pre-Installation
Select installation site: Normally this is near the center of the room, often replacing a light fixture. Make
certain that ample clearance is left for the rotating fan blades. For maximum efficiency, no obstruction
(walls, posts, etc.) should be within 30” of the tips of the blades (see Fig. 1).
Your Hunter fan comes with the proper hardware to hang the fan from a 8 foot ceiling so the fan
blades will be 12” from the ceiling and approximately 7 feet from the floor (see Fig. 1).
NOTE: On vaulted ceilings, up to 45° pitch, you may want to use the Hunter Angled Ceiling Mounting
Kit, which can be purchased via our website or by calling 1-888‑830‑1326.
! CAUTION !
NEVER LIFT THE MOTOR BY THE WIRES.
LET MOTOR REST IN THE CARTON LINER FOR PROTECTION.

Installing Ceiling Hardware
! CAUTION !
DO NOT USE LUBRICANT ON SCREWS
1. Drill two (2) 1/4” diameter holes 2-9/16” apart through the back of the outlet box into the cross
brace 2" deep. These holes are for the U-bracket bolts. Install rubber bushing and pin into the
u-bracket. Use a 11 mm wrench to install the (2) 3 1/2” lag bolts, found in the hardware bag, to
secure the U-bracket to the joist (see Fig. 2).

Wiring the Fan
! CAUTION !
BE CERTAIN THAT THE ELECTRICITY IS TURNED OFF AT THE
MAIN PANEL BEFORE STARTING THIS SECTION.
NOTE: All wiring must be in accordance with national and
local electrical codes and ANSI/NFPA 70-1999. If you are
unfamiliar with wiring, use a qualified electrician.
Wall switches are not included. Select an
acceptable general-use switch in accordance with
national and local electrical codes.
1.Before attempting installation, make sure the
power is still off.
2.To connect the wires, use the wire connectors
provided in the hardware bag. Hold the
bare metal leads together and place a wire
connector over them, then twist clockwise
until tight.
3.Connect the bare or green ground wire
(grounding) from the ceiling to the side of the
hanger bracket assembly.
4.Connect the white wire (grounded) from the
ceiling to the white wire (grounded) from the
fan.
5.Connect the remaining wires as follows for
either Dual or Single Switch Wiring:

Lubrication
! CAUTION !
DO NOT TURN FAN ON UNTIL LUBRICATION HAS BEEN ADDED. TO OPERATE THE FAN
WITHOUT OIL OR WITH LOW OIL WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.
Adding Oil
Note: Your fan has been shipped without oil in the motor. A tube of high grade SAE 10 non-detergent
oil is packaged in the hardware bag.
1. Remove cap if present.
2. Cut the tip off the end of the tube (see Fig. 11).
3. Place the tube into the oil hole and gently squeeze the tube to empty the oil into the fan's
reservoir (see Fig. 12).
NOTE: To avoid overflowing during filling, add a third of the oil from the tube at a time. Pause for 30
seconds between each third to allow the oil to settle in the fan. Be sure to add all of the oil in the
tube to the fan.

Your Original Hunter’s Unique Lubricating System
The bearings in your Hunter Original Ceiling Fan are submerged in oil, which lubricates all bearing
surfaces as the fan operates. We recommend periodically checking the oil to ensure the correct level
is maintained. This unique lubrication system is one reason why your Hunter Original Ceiling Fan will
last a lifetime.

Fan Blade Assembly
! CAUTION !
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE
BRACKETS WHEN INSTALLING THE BRACKETS, BALANCING THE
BLADES, OR CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS IN
BETWEEN ROTATING FAN BLADES.
Fan Blade Assembly
1.Insert blade grommets, found in the hardware bag, by hand into the holes on the blades (see Fig. 13).
2.Using a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver, attach each blade to a blade iron using three blade assembly
screws, found in the hardware bag (see Fig. 14).
3.For each blade, insert one blade mounting screw, found in the hardware bag, through the blade iron,
and attach lightly to the fan. Insert the second blade mounting screw, then securely tighten both
mounting screws (See Fig. 14) using a #2 Phillips-head screwdriver.
NOTE: With the Hunter Original, you have an option to install either four or five blades. For five blades,
mount to the outer row of holes on the motor. For four blades, use the inner row (see Fig. 15).

Operation And Care
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Clean wood finish blades with a furniture polishing cloth. Occasionally, apply a light coat of
furniture polish for added protection and beauty.
To Reverse The Flow Of Air.
1. Move the directional lever down for down draft (see Fig. 16).
2. Move the directional lever up for up draft (see Fig. 16).

Checking Oil
1. Check oil level immediately after filling the reservoir and every 1 to 5 years thereafter.
2. To check oil, bend an ordinary pipe cleaner into 1/2” long hook and dip it into the oil reservoir
(see. Fig. 17).
3. If the oil touches the end of the pipe cleaner, the fan has ample oil. If it does not touch, add SAE
10 non-detergent oil slowly until it touches the pipe cleaner (see. Fig. 18).

Energy Star
Hunter fans have the power to cut your cooling costs up to 40%.
Beat the High Cost of Cooling
The air movement created by a Hunter ceiling fan lets you set your
thermostat higher and still stay comfortable. Every degree you raise the
thermostat saves up to 7% on energy costs. So, you can cut back on
expensive air conditioning...and save up to 40%* on cooling. In winter, your
Hunter fan recirculates warm air and saves up to 10%* on heating bills.
*On average at low speed settings. Your savings may vary based on climate,
building type and thermostat setting.
Save Energy and Money While Protecting the Environment
Congratulations! You’re saving energy and money while protecting the
environment by purchasing this ENERGY STAR qualified Hunter ceiling fan!
With this purchase, you are doing your part to protect the environment.
Your new ceiling fan has earned the ENERGY STAR label because it meets
high energy efficiency specifications set by the Environmental Protection
Agency (EPA). ENERGY STAR labeled ceiling fans save energy because they
have more efficient fan motors and air delivery due to more aerodynamic
blade configurations. Ceiling fan models bearing the ENERGY STAR label
move air 14-20% more efficiently than typical ceiling fan models. For more
information on ENERGY STAR visit www.energystar.gov.
