Please read and understand this entire manual before attempting to assemble, operate or install the product.

  • Before you begin installing the fan, disconnect the power by removing fuses or turning off the circuit breakers.
  • Make sure all electrical connections comply with local codes, ordinances, the National Electrical Code and ANSI/NFPA 70-199. Hire an electrician or consult a do-it-yourself handbook if you are unfamiliar with installing electrical wiring.
  • Make sure the installation site you choose allows a minimum of 7 feet from the blades to the floor and at least 30 inches from the tip of the blades to any obstruction.
  • The weight of the fan is 21.5 pounds

icon DANGER: When using an existing outlet box, make sure it is securely attached to the building structure and can support the full weight of the fan. Failure to this can result in serious injury or death. The stability of the outlet box is essential in minimizing wobble and noise in the fan after installation is complete.

icon WARNING: To avoid personal injury, the use of gloves may be necessary while handling fan parts with sharp edges

iconWARNING: Using a full-range dimmer switch to control fan speed will cause a humming sound from the fan. To reduce the risk of fire or electric shock, do NOT use a full-range dimmer switch to control fan speed.

iconWARNING: To reduce the risk of fire, electric shock or personal injury, mount the fan to an outlet box marked “ACCEPTABLE FOR FAN SUPPORT” and use the mounting screws provided with 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. Secure the outlet 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 35 lbs.).

CAUTION: Be sure the outlet box is properly grounded or a ground (green or bare) wire is present.
CAUTION: Carefully check all screws, bolts, and nuts on the fan assembly ensure they are secured

Before beginning the assembly of this product, ensure all parts are present. Compare all parts with the package contents list and hardware contents list. If any part is missing or damaged, do not attempt to assemble the product. Estimated assembly time: 2 hours Tools required (not included): Electrical tape, Phillips Screwdriver, Safety Glasses, Step Ladder, and Wire Strippers.

  1. Turn off power to the fan at the breaker box and the wall switch (Figure 1.1). DANGER: Failure to disconnect the power supply prior to installation may result in serious injury or death.
  2. Choose one of the following mounting options (Figure 1.2) :
    Standard Mount – best suited for ceilings 8 feet or higher. For very high ceilings, use a longer downrod (not included). Angle Mount – best suited for angled or vaulted ceilings. A longer downrod is sometimes necessary to ensure proper blade clearance. Ensure the ceiling angle is not steeper than 16 degrees.
    Flushmount Installation – not available for this model. Close mount Installation – best suited for ceilings 8 feet or lower.
  3. Choose a suitable location – Ensure the blades will be at least 30 inches from any obstructions. Also check the downrod length to ensure the blades will be at least 7 feet above the floor (Figure 1.3).
