power off at Service panel and lock service disconnecting means to prevent power from being
switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot be locked, securely
fasten a prominent warning device, such as a
tag, to the service panel.
Before installing this fan make sure the outlet box is
properly installed to the house structure. To reduce
the risk of fire, electric shock, or personal injury,
mount to outlet box or supporting system acceptable
for fan support. (Mounting must support at least 35
lbs.)

TROUBLe SHOOTING
If you have difficulty operating your new ceiling fan, it may be the result of incorrect assembly, installation, or wiring. In
some cases, these installation errors may be mistaken for defects. If you experience any faults, please check this Trouble
Shooting Chart. If a problem cannot be remedied, or you are experiencing difficulty in installation, please call our Customer Service Center at the
number printed on your parts list insert sheet.
Warning: Before servicing or cleaning unit, Switch power off at Service panel and lock service disconnecting
means to prevent power from being switched on accidentally. When the service disconnecting means cannot
be locked, securely fasten a
prominent warning device, such as a tag, to the service panel.
Trouble
Suggested Remedy
1. If fan does not start:
1.Check main and branch circuit fuses or circuit breakers.
2.Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is turned off.
3.Make sure forward/reverse switch is firmly in up or down position. Fan will not operate when
switch is in the middle.
4.Make sure that shipping stabilizer tabs have been removed from motor.
2. If fan sounds noisy:
1.Check to make sure all screws in motor housing are snug (not over tightened).
2.Check to make sure the screws which attach the fan blade holder to the motor are tight.
3.Check to make sure wire nut connectors in switch housing are not rattling against each other or
against the interior wall of the switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is turned off before entering switch housing.
4.If using an optional Ceiling Fan Light Kit, check to be sure the screws securing the glassware are
finger tight. Check to be sure light bulb is tight in socket and not touching glass shade(s). If vibration persists from glass, remove glass and install a 1/4" wide rubber band on glass neck to act as an
insulator. Replace glass and tighten screws against rubber band.
5.Some fan motors are sensitive to signals from Solid State variable speed controls. DO NOT USE a
Solid State variable speed control.
6.Allow "break-in" period of 24 hours. Most noises associated with a new fan will disappear after this
period.
3. If fan wobbles:
1.If this is a downrod mount fan, make sure the ridge on mounting bracket engages the notch in the
downrod ball.
2.Check that all blades are screwed firmly into blade holders.
3.Check that all blade holders are tightened securely to motor.
4.Make sure that canopy and mounting bracket are tightened securely to ceiling junction box and
junction box is mounted firmly to ceiling joist.
5.Most fan wobble problems are caused when blade levels are unequal. Check this level by selecting
a point on the ceiling above the tip of one of the blades. Measure this distance from blade tip to
ceilng. Keeping measure within 1/8", rotate the fan until the next blade is positioned for measurement. Repeat for each blade. If all blade levels are not equal, you can adjust blade levels by the following procedure. To adjust a blade tip down, insert a washer (not supplied) between the blade and
blade holder at the screw closest to the motor. To adjust a blade tip up, insert washer (not supplied)
between the blade and blade holder at the two screws farthest from the motor. Reverse the position
of the washer if blades mount from top of blade.
6.If blade wobble is still noticeable, interchanging two adjacent (side by side) blades can redistribute
the weight and possibly result in smoother operation.
4. If light does not work:
1.Check blue wire from fan to make sure it is connected to hot wire from house.
2.Check for loose or disconnected wires in fan switch housing.
3.Check for loose or disconnected wires in light kit.
4.Check for faulty light bulbs.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is turned off before entering switch housing or canopy.
