- To reduce the risk of electric shock, insure electricity has been turned off at the circuit breaker or fuse box before beginning.
- All wiring must be in accordance with the National Electrical Code and local electrical codes. Electrical installation should be performed by a qualified licensed electrician.
- WARNING: To reduce the risk of electrical shock and fire, do not use this fan with any solid-state fan speed control device.
- WARNING: To reduce the risk of personal injury, use only the two steel screws (and lock washers) provided with the outlet box for mounting to the outlet box. Most outlet boxes commonly used for the support of lighting fixtures are not acceptable for fan support and may need to be replaced, consult a qualified electrician if in doubt.
WARNING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC
SHOCK OR PERSONAL INJURY, MOUNT FAN TO OUTLET BOX MARKED “ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT”.
- The outlet box and support structure must be securely mounted and capable of reliably supporting a minimum of 50 pounds. Use only UL Listed outlet boxes marked “FOR FAN SUPPORT”.
- The fan must be mounted with a minimum of 7 feet clearance from the trailing edge of the blades to the floor.
- Do not operate reversing switch while fan blades are in motion. Fan must be turned off and blades stopped before reversing blade direction.
- Avoid placing objects in the path of the blades.
- To avoid personal injury or damage to the fan and other items, be cautious when working around or cleaning the fan.
- Do not use water or detergents when cleaning the fan or fan blades. A dry dust cloth or lightly dampened cloth will be suitable for most cleaning.
- After marking electrical connections, spliced conductors should be turned upward and pushed carefully up into outlet box. The wires should be spread apart with the grounded conductor and the equipment-grounding conductor on one side of the outlet box.
- Electrical diagrams are reference only. Light kit that are not packed with the fan must be UL Listed and marked suitable for use with the model fan you are installing. Switches must be UL General Use Switches. Refer to the Instructions packaged with the light kits and switches for proper assembly.
WARNING TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE BRACKETS (ALSO REFERRED TO AS FLANGES) DURING ASSEMBLY OR AFTER INSTALLATION. DO NOT INSERT OBJECTS IN THE PATH OF THE BLADES.
3. MOUNTING OPTIONS
If there isn’t an existing UL listed mounting box, then read the following instructions. Disconnect the power by removing fuses or turning off circuit breakers.
Secure the outlet box directly to the building structure. Use appropriate fasteners and building materials. The outlet box and its support must be able to fully support the moving weight of the fan (at least 50 lbs). Do not use plastic outlet boxes.
Fig 1, 2 and 3 are examples of different ways to mount the outlet box.
Note: You may need a longer downrod to maintain proper blade clearance when installing on a steep, sloped ceiling. (Fig 3)
4. ATTACHING THE FAN BLADES
Step 1 Remove the motor cover by unscrewing the screws with a screwdriver. (Fig.5)
Step 2 Fasten blade assembly to motor using the screws supplied. (Fig. 6)
Step 3 Install the motor cover back to the motor and tighten it with screws.(Fig.7)
TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE HOLDERS WHILE INSTALLING, BALANCING THE BLADES, OR CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS BETWEEN ROTATING FAN BLADES.
5. HANGING THE FAN
REMEMBER to turn off the power. Follow the steps below to hang your fan properly.
NOTE: This ceiling fan is supplied with two types of hanging assemblies; the standard ceiling installation using the downrod with ball and socket mounting and the “close-to-ceiling” installation. The “close-to-ceiling” installation is recommended in rooms with less than 8-feet ceilings or in areas where additional space is desired from the floor to the fan blades.
STANDARD CEILING INSTALLATION
Step 1. Pass the 120-volt supply wires through the center hole in the ceiling hanger bracket as shown in (Fig.8)
Step 2. Secure the hanger bracket to the ceiling outlet box with the screws and washers provided with your outlet box.
Step 3. Remove the hanger pin, lock pin and set screws from the top of the motor assembly.
Step 4. Route wires exiting from the top of the fan motor through the canopy and then through the ball/downrod. (Fig.9)
Step 5. Align the holes at the bottom of the downrod with the holes in the collar on top of the motor housing. Carefully insert the hitch pin through the holes in the collar and downrod. Be careful not to jam the pin against the wiring inside the downrod. Insert the locking pin through the hole near the end of the hitch pin until it snaps into its locked position. (Fig.9)
Step 6. Tighten two set screws on top of the fan motor firmly.
Step 7. Place the downrod ball into the hanger bracket socket. This will allow you to make the electrical connections. (Fig.10)
- Remove the decorative canopy bottom cover from the canopy. (Fig. 11)
- Pass the 120-volt supply wires through the center hole in the ceiling hanger bracket as shown in (Fig. 8)
- Secure the hanger bracket to the ceiling outlet box with the screws and washers provided with your outlet box. (Fig. 8)
- Place the ceiling canopy over the collar at the top of the motor. Align the mounting holes with the holes in the motor and fasten using the screws and lock washers provided. (Fig. 12)
- Tighten the mounting screws securely. (Fig. 12)
7. MAKE THE ELECTRIC CONNECTIONS
Remember to disconnect the power. Follow the steps below to connect the fan to your household wiring. Use the wire connecting nuts supplied with your fan. Secure the connectors with electrical tape. Make sure there are no loose strands or connections.
Step 1 Connect the fan supply (black) wire and light fixture (blue) wire to the black household supply wire as shown in Fig.13 .
Step 2. Connect the neutral fan (white) wire to the white neutral household wire.
Step 3 Connect the fan ground wire (green) to the household ground wire.
Step 4 After connecting the wires, spread them apart so that the green and white wires are on one side of the outlet box and the black and the blue wires are on the other side.
Step 5 Turn the connecting nuts upward and push the wiring into the outlet box.
WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF FIRE, ELECTRIC SHOCK, OR OTHER PERSONAL INJURY. MOUNT FAN ONLY ON AN OUTLET BOX OR SUPPORTING SYSTEM MARKED ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT.
8. FINISHING THE INSTALLATION
STANDARD CEILING INSTALLATION Slide canopy up to the ceiling as shown in Fig. 14. Make sure you place the wires safely into the outlet box. Secure the canopy to the hanger bracket with the four screws with your fan.
9.INSTALLING THE WALL CONTROL
Disconnect the power and remove the existing wall plate and switch. Set all knobs on the single slide wall control the OFF position. Installation of this control requires that a three conductor cable with ground wire be run between the control wall box and the ceiling fan outlet box. Make wire connections and secure with wire nuts supplied (Fig.15)
Connect BLACK wire from A.C. power supply to BLACK wire “AC IN L” from the wall-mounted control. Connect BLACK wire from the ceiling fan to BLACK wire “TO MOTORL L” from the wall-mounted control. Connect BLUE wire from the ceiling fan to BLUE wire “FOR LIGHT” the wall-mounted control. Make sure to use wire nuts on all connections.
Push the Control Unit into the switch box and secure it with the two screws at each end of the unit (this procedure is the same as if you were to put the original wall switch back into the wall)Now attach the face plate to the Wall Control. (Fig.16)
Speed Control (Fig.17)
- 0: POWER OFF
- H: HIGH SPEED

11.OPERATING YOUR FAN
Turn on the power and check the operation of your fan. The pull chain controls the fan speed as follows:
1. 3-speed pull chain- it controls the fan speed as follows: 1 pull- High, 2 pulls Medium, 3 pulls- Low, and 4 pulls- Off.
Speed settings for warm or cool weather depend on factors such as the room size, ceiling height, number of fans, and so on.
The slide switch controls directions: forward (switch down) or reverse (switch up).
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. 19. 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. 20. This allows you to set your heating unit on a cooler setting without affecting your comfort.
