Unpack your ceiling fan carefully, remove all parts and components, and lay on a cloth or soft surface to avoid damage. Do not lay the motor housing on its side, the housing may get damaged. Before commencing installation, check that all parts are included.
Warning: All electrical tasks should only be undertaken after disconnection of electricity by removing fuses or turning off the circuit breaker to avoid the risk of electric shock.
Installation of The Mounting Bracket
The hanger bracket must be screwed on to a firm, flat surface. The structure to which it is installed must be able to withstand ten times the static weight of the fan.
If you intend to install the ceiling fan onto a wooden joist, 2 self-tapping screws provided should be enough to support the ceiling fan. The washers provided must be placed in the following order:
- Screw Head
- Round Washer
- Spring Washer
- Mounting Bracket
Screw the mounting bracket to the ceiling and make sure all connections are secure to prevent the fan from falling. Loosen the two canopy screws from the mounting bracket.
Note: Self-tapping screws are only suitable for wooden ceilings. In case of installing the ceiling fan to concrete ceilings or joists, use a drill for making the holes and stoppers or expansion screws (not included).
Installation of The Down Rod and Hanger Ball
Unscrew the screw on the down rod’s hanger ball, then loosen the hanger ball. Remove the stop pin from inside the down rod and remove the hanger ball from the rod.
Remove the clevis pin and hairpin clip from the down rod.
If you prefer using the longer down rod, install the hanger ball on it and make sure to move the earth wire from one to the other. Pass the electrical supply leads from the top of the motor all the way through the down rod until they come out the other end.
Insert the down rod into the motor housing’s hole and turn it in order to align the holes on both sides with the holes on the down rod.
Pass the clevis pin through the holes so that it passes through the down rod too, be careful not to damage any of the wires. Pass the hairpin clip through the clevis pin so that it is securely fixed.
Tighten all the screws set up to the moment. This will ensure minimum rod and fan tumbling.
If screws are not properly tightened, the motor might oscillate. This could be dangerous.
Once the above steps are all finished, install the hanger ball onto the down rod, insert the stop pin in the down rod and lift up the hanger ball. Then, tighten all the screws firmly so that all the elements are completely and securely fixed
Hanging The Fan to The Mounting Bracket and Attaching the Blades
Lift the fan up to the mounting bracket, insert the hanger ball in the mounting bracket through the opening and carefully let it rest.
Rotate the ball and make sure that the tab located in the mounting bracket is aligned with the hanging balls slot.
When aligned, the fan will automatically sit on its correct position. This will prevent rotation of the rod and fan when the unit is operating.
Remote Control and Wiring Instruction
Place the receiver through the hanging bracket and connect the wires following the colour codes.
Connect the push connectors from the fan to the remote control as stated below:
- Insert the 3P connector of hanger bracket into the AC POWER INPUT socket of receiver
- Insert the 2P light connector of fan motor assembly into the 2P LIGHT socket of receiver
- Insert the 3P motor connector of fan motor assembly into the 3P MOTOR socket of receiver
Refer to the wiring diagram on the following page for detailed information.
Remove the three screws and the lamp holder from the fixing panel.
Insert the blades through the motor housing’s side slots and align them with the 3 holes.
Secure the blades with 3 blade screws and ensure that the 3 blade screws are tightened properly. Do not over tighten the screws as this can damage the blades. Repeat this process for all blades.
Note: if installing more than 1 fan, be careful not to mix blades and screws as each model is designed with specific materials and parts.
Installing The Led Light and Glass Shade
Align the lamp holder’s screw holes with those on the motor and attach both parts by means of the screws provided.
Connect the LED light’s wires to the fan motor’s wires.
Carefully install the glass shade into the main body and turn it clockwise to lock it.
WARNING: Do not overtighten when installing the glass shade.
The Balancing Kit should only be used if there is an unacceptable amount of fan wobble after completing the previous installation steps.
- Tum the fan on and set the speed control setting to a speed at which the wobble is the greatest.
- Turn off the fan and allow it to come to a complete stop. Select one blade and place the balance clip on it, halfway between the blade holder and the blade tip on the trailing edge of the blade.
- Turn the fan on. Note whether the wobble has increased or decreased. Turn the fan off, move the clip to another blade, and retest. Repeat this procedure on all blades noting the blade on which the greatest improvement is achieved.
- Move the clip back to the blade that showed the greatest improvement. Move the clip inward and outward on this blade and operate the fan to find the position where the clip gives the greatest improvement.
- Remove the clip and install a balancing weight to the top of the blade along the centerline near the point where the clip was positioned.
- If the fan wobble problem has not been corrected, you may wish to try to improve the balancing further by using the balancing clip and additional weights.
The direction switch on the fan body controls airflow:
- Winter function: Press the switch UP for the blades to move warm air near the ceiling around.
- Summer function: Press the switch DOWN for blades to create a breeze and improve air circulation.
Warning: Before using the direction switch, turn the fan off and make sure the fan has stopped rotating in order to prevent possible injuries and motor damage.
Change direction by pushing the switch up or down when the fan is off.
Use the remote control to turn the fan on and off and to change speed.
Changing the Light Mode
The light has three inbuilt colour modes. You can cycle through these by turning the light on and off with the button on the remote.
The colour options are: cool white, yellow, and natural.
Cleaning and Maintenence
To replace the remote control batteries, press the battery cover and slide it towards the arrow direction.
This remote control requires 1 x A23 12V battery.
Reassemble the battery compartment cover.
- Always ensure the battery compartment cover is closed properly.
- Never leave the remote control directly exposed to sunlight.
- Do not try recharging the discharged batteries by heating them or with a battery charger.
- Rechargeable batteries are always specified as so.
- Do not throw batteries to fire, it could cause an explosion.
Always turn disconnect the fan from the power supply and allow it to stop before cleaning it.
Clean the outside surface with a soft damp cloth.
- Do not immerse then fan in water.
- Never use scouring pads, abrasive or chemical cleaners.
- Clean your fan periodically. Use only a cloth or brush. Metal finishes are finished with a lacquer to prevent tarnishing.
- Do not allow the product’s inside parts to get wet (especially the circuit board), this could be very dangerous and damage the fan.
- While the product is not in use, make sure it is unplugged from the power supply. To store it, place it in its original box and save it in a fresh and dry place until it is used again.
- In case of fault or doubt, do not try to repair the fan by yourself to avoid risk of fire or electric shock.
The fan does not startup
1. Check all the fuses or circuit breakers.
2. Turn off the electrical power and check all wire connections.
The fan emits noises
1. Always allow a few days “break-in” time for any new fan at medium or high speed. Try to diagnose the exact location of the noise by listening carefully from several sides (blades, motor, light kit, etc.) The fan noise can come from a light kit.
2. Make sure all screws in the fan assembly and light kit are tight and properly threaded. If not, back out and retighten. Tighten these screws at least once a year because they may loosen slowly over time and cause a clicking noise.
3. Make sure the light kit is securely fastened to the fan, and all-glass screws are finger tightened only. Do not tighten with pliers or a screwdriver.
4. Make sure the mounting bracket is installed snugly to the junction box.
5. Make sure wire nuts in the switch housing or the canopy are not rattling against each other or against the housing’s wall. Wrap with electrical tape if necessary.
6. Make sure the canopy is not touching the ceiling.
7. Assure that the screws fastening the blade holders to the motor are tight and the lock washers provided for that purpose have been used.
The fan does not produce much air
1. The fan may be running in reverse, so air is directed upward.
2. The room may contain items that obstruct the airflow.
3. The fan may be too small for the size of the room.
Note: a small amount of wobble is considered acceptable and should not be considered a defect.
1. Make sure the mounting bracket is fixed tightly to the ceiling with no movement at all. Tighten screws if necessary.
2. Make sure all screws holding the blades to the blade support and blade support to the motor are tight. Make sure the light kit and the glass screws are tight.
