SAFETY RULES
1. Before you begin installing the fan, shut power off at the circuit breaker of the fuse box.
2. Be cautious! Read all instructions and safety information before installing your new fan. Review accompanying assembly diagrams.
3. Make sure that all electrical connections comply with local codes, ordinances, or National Electrical Codes. Hire a qualified electrician or consult a
do-it-yourself wiring handbook if you are unfamiliar with installing electrical wiring.
4. Make sure the installation site you choose allows the fan blades to rotate without any obstructions. Allow a minimum clearance of 7 feet from the
floor and 18 inches from the tip of the blades to the wall.
5. If you are mounting the fan to a ceiling fan outlet box, use a U.L. Listed metal octagonal outlet box marked "Acceptable for Fan Support". Secure the
box directly to the building structure. The outlet box and its support must be able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds) Do
not use a plastic box.
6. Caution: To reduce the risk of injury use only the screws provided with the outlet box in conjunction with the lock washers provided with the fan.
7. If you are mounting the fan to a joist, make sure it is able to support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 pounds).
8. After you install the fan, make sure that all mounting components are secured to prevent the fan from falling.
9. Do not insert anything into the fan blades while the fan is operating.
SUITABLE FOR USE IN
10. To operate the reverse function on this fan, press the reverse button while the fan is running.
WET LOCATIONS
ATTENTION: The Energy Policy Act of 2005 requires this fan to be equipped with a 190 watt limiting device. If lamping exceeds 190 watts, the

NOTE: The important safeguards and instructions appearing in this manual are not meant to cover all possible conditions and situations that may
occur. It must be understood that common sense, caution and care are factors which can not be built into this product. These factors must be
supplied by the person (s) installing, caring for and operating the unit.
NOTE: READ AND SAVE ALL INSTRUCTIONS!

OPERATING YOUR FAN
Restore power to ceiling fan and test for proper operation.
Speed settings for warm or cool weather depend on factors such as the room size. Ceiling height, number of fans, etc.
The Reverse switch is located on the switch housing. Slide the switch to the Left for warm weather operation. Slide the switch to the Right for cool
weather operation.
NOTE: Wait for fan to stop before changing the setting of the slide switch.
Warm weather - (Forward)
A downward airflow creates a cooling effect as shown in Fig. 20. This allows you to set your air conditioner on a warmer setting without affecting
your comfort.
Cool weather - (Reverse)
An upward airflow moves warm air off the ceiling area as shown in Fig. 21. This allows you to set your heating unit on a cooler setting without
affecting your comfort.
The pull chain controls the fan speed as follows: 1st pull- High , 2nd pul l - Med, 3rd pull - Low and 4th pul l - Off.

Here are some suggestions to help maintain your fan.
1. Because of the fan's natural movement some connections may become
loose. Check the support connections, brackets and blade attachments
twice a year. Make sure they are secure. (It is not necessary to remove
fan from the ceiling).
2. Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over
the year. CAUTION; many common household cleaning products contain
chemicals that could damage the finish of your fan. Use only a soft lint
free cloth and soapy water.
3. If your fan is provided with wood veneer blades; you can apply a light
coat of furniture polish for additional protection and enhanced beauty.
Cover small scratches with a light application of shoe polish.
CARE OF YOUR FAN
4. Use a lint free lightly damp cloth or duster to remove dust from
the blades.
5. There is no need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently lubricated
bearings.
6. If your fan is provided with glass shades, clean with lukewarm soapy water
and a soft cloth or sponge. DO NOT IMMERSE GLASS SHADES IN HOT WATER.
DO NOT PUT GLASS SHADES INTO AN AUTOMATIC DISHWASHER.
WARNING!
MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF AT THE
ELECTRICAL PANEL BOX BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT
ANY REPAIRS. REFER TO THE SECTION,
"ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS".

TROUBLESHOOTING
SYMPTOM
Fan will not start
SOLUTION
Check fuses or circuit breakers.
Check line wire connections to fan and switch wire connections in
switch housing.
CAUTION: Make sure main power is off.
Check to make sure the reverse is set to one side. If switch is located
in the middle it might not make proper contact.
SYMPTOM
Fan Sounds Noisy
SOLUTION
Allow a 24-hour "break-in" period. Most noises as sociated with a new
fan go away during this time.
Make sure all motor housing screws are snug.
Make sure the screws that attach the fan blade bracket to the motor
hub are tight.
Some fan motors are sensitive to signa ls from solid-state variable
speed controls. If you have installed this type of control, choose and
install another type of control.
SYMPTOM
Fan Wobble
SYMPTOM
Lights shut off and will not come back on.
SOLUTION
Check that all blade and blade holder screws are secured.
SOLUTION
Use the enclosed blade balancing kit if blade wobble is
excessive. (See instructions included with the balancing kit.)
NOTE: All Blade sets are grouped by weight. Because blades vary
in density, the fan may wobble even though blades are weight
matched.
This unit is equipped with a wattage limiting device. Lamping in excess of 190
watts will disable your ceiling fan’s light kit. To reset your light kit you must
turn the power off and re lamp, keeping the wattage under 190 watts. Restore
power to your ceiling fan and continue normal operation.
