READ AND SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS


CAUTION:







STEP 1:


FIG. 1


INSPECTION OF FAN

A. UNPACK UNIT CAREFULLY TO AVOID ANY DAMAGE TO THE COMPONENTS.
B. CHECK FOR ANY SHIPPING DAMAGE TO THE MOTOR AND THE FAN BLADES. IF
MORE THAN ONE FAN IS BEING INSTALLED, KEEP THE MATCHED AND
BALANCED FAN BLADES IN SETS OF FOUR, AS THEY WERE SHIPPED. SHOULD
ONE OF THE FAN BLADES BECOME DAMAGED DURING SHIPMENT, RETURN ALL
FOUR BLADES IN THE SET FOR REPLACEMENT.

INSTALLATION OF OUTLET BOX AND ROUGH-IN WIRING

YOUR HUNTER CEILING FAN WITH ACCESSORIES CAN WEIGH UP TO 30 LBS. THE
FOLLOWING PRECAUTIONS MUST BE TAKEN FOR SAFETY AND TO ENSURE THAT
YOUR FAN IS SECURELY MOUNTED TO THE CEILING.


1. READ ENTIRE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION.
2. TO AVOID POSSIBLE ELECTRICAL SHOCK, BE CERTAIN ELECTRICITY IS SHUT
OFF AT MAIN PANEL BEFORE WIRING.
3. ALL WIRING MUST BE IN ACCORDANCE WITH NATIONAL AND LOCAL ELEC-
TRICAL CODES, IF YOU ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH WIRING, YOU SHOULD USE A
QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN.
4. DO NOT USE A LIGHT DIMMER SWITCH AS A FAN SPEED CONTROL ON THIS FAN.
IF YOU DESIRE A HUNTER SPEED CONTROL, CONTACT YOUR HUNTER DEALER
OR CALL (901) 745-9222.

PRE-INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

A. SELECT INSTALLATION SITE, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT IN NORMAL USE NO
OBJECT CAN COME IN CONTACT WITH THE ROTATING FAN BLADES. THE MOUN-
TING SITE SHOULD ALSO MEET THE PRECAUTIONS LISTED IN STEP 3 BELOW.
B. INSTALLATION HARDWARE IS INCLUDED FOR A STANDARD DRYWALL OR
PLASTER CEILING. YOU WILL NEED A 4" X 1-1/ OR 4" X 1/2 OCTAGON OUTLET
BOX AND WIRE NUTS (2) WHICH CAN BE PURCHASED FROM ANY HARDWARE
STORE OR ELECTRICAL SUPPLY HOUSE. IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A SMALLER
OUTLET BOX INSTALLED YOU WILL BE ABLE TO PURCHASE AN ADAPTOR
BRACKET FROM YOUR LOCAL HARDWARE STORE WHICH WILL ADAPT YOUR
OUTLET BOX TO FIT THE FAN HANGER BRACKET.
C. THE FAN BLADES MUST BE MOUNTED AT LEAST 7' ABOVE THE FLOOR. FOR
MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY, THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE ANY OBSTRUCTION (WALLS,
POSTS, ETC.) WITHIN 24" OF THE BLADE TIPS. SEE FIG. 1 FOR MOUNTING
DISTANCES.
IF YOUR CEILING IS HIGHER THAN 8 FEET, YOU MAY WISH TO USE A LONGER
HANGER PIPE TO ACHIEVE THE DESIRED HANGING HEIGHT. OPTIONAL HANGER
PIPES NEEDED FOR HIGHER CEILINGS ARE AVAILABLE IN FOUR LENGTHS (8",
12", 18", 32"), AND IN HUNTER FINISHES.
NOTE: ON VAULTED CEILINGS, UP TO 450 PITCH, YOU MAY WANT TO USE THE
HUNTER VAULTED CEILING MOUNTING KIT.

STEP 5: ASSEMBLY AND HANGING OF FAN
CAUTION: DO NOT LIFT MOTOR BY WIRES
A. INSERT PIPE NIPPLE THRU CANOPY AND FEED WIRES FROM TOP OF MOTOR
THRU PIPE NIPPLE. IF YOU WISH, YOU MAY CUT THE LEADWIRES SO THAT THEY
EXTEND ABOUT 6" ABOVE THE TOP OF THE PIPE NIPPLE, AND RESTRIP THEM
3/8" TO FACILITATE WIRING. MAKE CERTAIN BARE WIRE DOES NOT EXTEND OUT-
SIDE OF WIRE NUTS.
B. SCREW PIPE NIPPLE INTO FAN UNTIL TIGHT (AT LEAST 4-1/2 TURNS). THE
SETSCREW LOCKING THE PIPE NIPPLE TO MOTOR MUST BE TIGHTENED VERY
SECURELY (SEE FIG. 5.) FAILURE TO SECURELY TIGHTEN SCREW COULD RESULT

FAN BLADE ASSEMBLY, INSTALLATION AND BALANCING

A. ATTACH WOOD BLADES TO BLADE BRACKETS USING THREE SCREWS FOR
EACH BLADE. SEE Fig. 8. IF YOUR BLADES HAVE LARGE HOLES YOU MUST
FIRST INSERT THE RUBBER GROMMETS INTO THE HOLES. SEE Fig. 8A.
GROMMETS ARE USUALLY ASSEMBLED BY HAND. IF YOU USE A
TOOL MAKE CERTAIN YOU DO NOT DAMAGE THE GROMMET OR
BLADE WHEN INSERTING THE GROMMETS.

NEXT ASSEMBLE THE BLADE TO THE BLADE BRACKET. MAKE
SURE ALL SCREWS ARE TIGHT TO PREVENT VIBRATION OR WOB-
BLING. A CAVITY IN THE STYROFOAM PACKAGING HAS BEEN PRO-
VIDED TO NEST THE PARTS IN DURING ASSEMBLY TO ASSURE
CORRECT ALIGNMENT OF PARTS.
B. INSERT A MOUNTING SCREW (PROVIDED) IN HOLE IN BLADE BRACKET. USE A
SCREWDRIVER TO HOLD IN PLACE. ALIGN BLADE HOLES WITH MTG. HOLES
IN HUB, BY TURNING SCREW AND READJUSTING BLADE BRACKET UNTIL
SCREW MATES WITH THREADED HOLE IN HUB. DO NOT TIGHTEN UNTIL BOTH
SCREWS HAVE BEEN PUT IN BLADE BRACKET. REPEAT FOR 4 BLADES. SEE
FIG. 9.

C. A BLADE BALANCING KIT HAS BEEN PROVIDED WITH YOUR FAN. SHOULD THE
FAN WOBBLE IN OPERATION, YOU MAY USE THIS KIT TO CORRECT THE
BALANCE PER THE INSTRUCTIONS SUPPLIED WITH THE KIT.

STEP 8: OPERATION OF FAN
A. TURN ELECTRICAL SERVICE ON AT MAIN PANEL.
B. ATTACH PULL CORD TO SWITCH CHAIN. SWITCH OPERATES IN THIS SEQUENCE:
"HIGH", "MEDIUM", "LOW", "OFF". PULL CORD SLOWLY TO OPERATE. ALSO,
RELEASE THE CORD SLOWLY SO AS TO PREVENT CORD FROM FLYING UP INTO
BLADES, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN DAMAGE TO BLADES, CORD OR PULL CHAIN.
THE BREAKAWAY CONNECTOR IS DESIGNED TO SEPARATE FROM THE CHAIN AT
A PREDETERMINED FORCE. IF THIS SEPARATION OCCURS, SIMPLY REINSERT
CONNECTOR. IT CAN BE REUSED AGAIN AND AGAIN. SEE FIG. 9.
C. MOTOR IS ELECTRICALLY REVERSIBLE. WHEN FIRST OPERATING FAN,
DETERMINE DIRECTION OF AIR FLOW. IF YOU WISH TO CHANGE DIRECTION,
SWITCH FAN OFF AND ALLOW TO STOP. SLIDE REVERSING SWITCH TO THE
OPPOSITE POSITION AND SWITCH FAN BACK ON. SEE FIG. 9.

CAUTION: FAILURE TO SECURELY INSTALL THE OUTLET BOX COULD RESULT IN THE FAN FALL-
ING. THEREFORE MAKE CERTAIN YOUR INSTALLATION IS SUITABLE FOR THE APPLICATION.

INSTALLATION IN CONCRETE

IF YOU ALREADY HAVE AN ELECTRICAL OUTLET BOX IN PLACE, MAKE CERTAIN THE BOX IS
CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING A THIRTY POUND LOAD. ONCE THIS HAS BEEN DONE, SIMPLY ATTACH
THE HANGER BRACKET AND FOLLOW THE HANGING PROCEDURES AS PREVIOUSLY ILLUSTRATED.

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE AN ELECTRICAL OUTLET BOX, ONE MAY BE PURCHASED AT ANY HARDWARE
STORE. WHEN MOUNTING AN OUTLET BOX TO CONCRETE, YOU WILL NEED TO USE CONCRETE AN-
CHORS. AFTER INSTALLING ANCHORS AND ATTACHING THE OUTLET BOX, MAKE CERTAIN THE
SUPPORT IS SUITABLE FOR HANGING A THIRTY POUND LOAD. ONCE THIS HAS BEEN DONE, PRO-
CEED WITH HANGING YOUR CEILING FAN.

VAULTED CEILINGS
