Installation

MOUNTING OPTIONS

NOTE: You may need a longer downrod to maintain proper blade clearance when installing on a steep, sloped ceiling. The maximum angle allowable is 30° away from horizontal.

WARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or personal injury, mount to outlet box marked “acceptable for fan support of 35lbs. (15.9 Kg) or

less” and use screws provided with the outlet box. An outlet box commonly used for the support of lighting fixtures may not be acceptable for fan support and may need to be replaced. If in doubt, consult a qualified electrician.

If your ceiling fan does not have an existing UL-listed mounting box, then install one using the following instructions:

  • Disconnect the power by removing the fuses or turning off

the circuit breakers.

  • Secure the outlet box directly to the building structure. Use the appropriate fasteners and materials. The outlet box and

its bracing must be able to fully support the weight of the moving fan (at least 35 lbs.). Do not use a plastic outlet box.

The illustrations below show three different ways to mount the outlet box.

Hanger Bar

Outlet Box

If the canopy (C) touches the downrod, then remove the decorative canopy bottom cover, and turn the canopy 180° before attaching the canopy to the mounting plate.

To hang your fan where there is an existing fixture but no ceiling joist, you may need an installation hanger bar as shown above

(available at any Home Depot store).

Operating your Fan

WARNING: To reduce the risk personal injury. Do not bend the blade holders while installing, balancing the blades, or cleaning the fan. Do not insert objects between rotating blades.

Turn on the power and check the operation of the fan. The pull chain controls the fan speeds as follows:

1 pull – High, 2 pulls – Medium, 3 pulls – Low, 4 pulls – off

The appropriate speed settings for warm or cool weather depend on factors such as the room size, ceiling height, and number of fans.

The slide switch controls the direction of the blades: forward (switch left) or reverse (switch right).

NOTE: Wait for the fan to stop before reversing the direction of blade rotation.

Warm weather – (Forward) A downward airflow creates a cooling ef- fect. 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 of the ceiling. This allows you to set your heating unit on a cooler set- ting without affecting your comfort.

Care and Cleaning

WARNING: Make sure the power is off before cleaning your fan.

  • 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 the fan from the ceiling.
  • Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over the years. Do not use water when cleaning, as this could damage the motor, or the wood, or possibly cause an electrical shock. Use only a soft brush or lint-free cloth to avoid scratching the finish.
  • You can apply a light coat of furniture polish to the wood for additional protection and enhanced beauty. Cover small scratches with a light application of shoe polish.
  • You do not need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently-lubricated sealed ball bearings.

Troubleshooting

Problem Solution
The fan will not start.
  • Check the main and branch circuit fuses or breakers.
  • Check the line wire connections to the fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing.
The fan is noisy.
  • Ensure all motor housing screws are snug.
  • Ensure the screws that attach the fan blade bracket to the motor hub are tight.
  • Ensure the wire nut connections are not rattling against each other or the interior wall of the switch housing.
  • Allow a 24-hour “breaking in” period. Most noises associated with a new fan disappear during this time.
  • If you are using the Ceiling Fan light kit, ensure the screws securing the glassware are tight. Check that the light

bulbs are also secure.

  • Ensure the canopy is a short distance from the ceiling. It should not touch the ceiling.
  • Ensure your outlet box is secure and rubber isolator pads were used between the mounting plate and outlet box.
The fan wobbles.
  • Check that all blade and blade arm screws are secure.
  • 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 from a point on the center of the blade to the point on the

ceiling. Rotate the fan until the next blade is positioned for measurement, and measure from the same point on each blade to the ceiling. Repeat for each blade. Any measurement deviation should be within 1/8 in. Run the fan for ten minutes. If the fan continues to wobble please contact Customer Service and a balancing kit will be sent to you at no charge.
