****** Page 12 ****** 11. PROGRAMMING YOUR FAN AND OPERATING THE REMOTE CONTROL AND WALL CONTROL Before programming takes place, fan must be fully assembled and mounted to the ceiling with blades attached. You must also choose which control you will be using for programming the fan, the remote or the wall control. No other wall control should be used with this fan but that which was included. Using another wall control other than ours will damage your fan and void your warranty. Install one 23A/12V battery (included). To prevent damage to transmitter, remove the battery if not used for long periods of time (Fig. 15 & 16) Restore power to ceiling fan operation. A. l, II, Ill, IV, V and VI button: These six buttons are used to follows: I = minimum speed II = low speed Ill = medium low speed IV = medium speed V = medium high speed VI = high speed B. button: This button turns the fan off. c. Reverse button: and test for proper set the fan speed as This button is to control fan direction D. Aux Light button: This button is to control light ON or OFF and also controls the brightness setting. E. SET code setting button: Your DC brushless motor is equipped with automatically learned type remote control and a wall control. If two fans or more in a house, it is recommended that you not use the factory code settings. Change codes setting to any other combination of dip switch setting to avoid fan interference issues, but users need to do control setting process as below once the code setting is changed. Please refer the “D” “SET” code setting button section. Follow the below steps to set the remote control: The auto learning function will only mandate within 60 seconds when turning the fan’s AC power ON. a) Select desired frequency from the transmitter. b) From the wall or remote transmitter, press the “SET” button, and hold the “SET’ button for over 10 seconds. Once the receiver has detected the frequency, the light will flash twice, and the fan will automatically begin to operate and start to rotate in the counterclockwise direction and on the highest RPM for 3 minutes. When counter clockwise rotation has finished, the fan will automatically reverse to clockwise direction again to the highest RPM for 3 minutes. Fan will shut off when the self calibration test has finished. The total self calibration test will last about 6 minutes. 10 o tav Figure 15 e 111 ooo Figure 16 o 111 11 Aux Figure 17

****** Page 13 ****** NOTE: If the self calibration test failed, turn the AC power off; restore power and process the self calibration test again. NOTE: During self calibration test, the remote and the wall control are non-functional. NOTE: The learning frequency function and self calibration test will continue to retain the last set frequency and calibration set even when the AC power is shut off. If the frequency is changed the self calibration test will occur again. This receiver provides the following protective function: 1. Lock Rotor Position: The DC motor has a built-in safety against a stalled or locked rotor condition (stalled blade rotation). If there is an obstruction or fault with the motor, the current monitoring function will automatically turn power off to the motor after 30 seconds. Remove the obstruction and turn the AC power off. Restore power and re-start fan motor. 2. Over 80W protection: When the receiver detects motor power consumption which is greater than 80W, the receiver power will be stopped and operation will immediately discontinue. Wait for 5 seconds and then turn the receiver power back on. 10. OPERATING YOUR FAN Speed settings for warm or cool weather depend on factors such as the room size. Ceiling height, number of fans and so on. NOTE: To operate the reverse function on this fan, press the reverse button while the fan is running. Figure 18 (Forward) A downward airflow Warm weather – creates a cooling effect as shown in Fig. 18. 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. 19. This allows you to set your heating unit on a cooler setting without affecting your comfort. Figure 19 11

****** Page 14 ****** 11. CARE OF YOUR FAN Here are some suggestions to help you maintain your fan 1. 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 fan from ceiling.) 2. Clean your fan periodically to help maintain its new appearance over the years. Use only a soft brush or lint-free cloth to avoid scratching the finish. The plating is sealed with a lacquer to minimize discoloration or tarnishing. Do not use water when cleaning. This could damage the motor, or the wood, or possibly cause an electrical shock. 3. You can apply a light coat of furniture polish to the wood blades for additional protection and enhanced beauty. Cover small scratches with a light application of shoe polish. 4. There is no need to oil your fan. The motor has permanently lubricated bearings. IMPORTANT: MAKE SURE THE POWER IS OFF AT THE ELECTRICAL PANEL BOX BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT ANY REPAIRS. REFER TO THE SECTION “MAKING ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS”. 12. TROUBLESHOOTING Problem Fan will not start. Fan is noisy. Remote control malfunction. Fan wobble. Fan has jerky movement Fan has lost its programming repeatedly Solution 1. Check circuit fuses or breakers. 2. Check line wire connections to the fan and switch wire connections in the switch housing. CAUTION: Make sure main power is off. 3. Check that the battery of the remote is functional. 4. Check to make sure all receiver plugs are connected at top of motor. 5. Re-do steps for programming on page 9. 1. Make sure all motor housing screws are snug. 2. Make sure the screws that attach the fan blade bracket to the motor hub is tight. 3. Make sure wire nut connections are not rubbing against each other or the interior wall of the switch housing. CAUTION: Make sure main power is off. Allow a 24-hour “breaking-in” period. Most noise associated with a new fan disappear 4. during this time. 5. Some fan motors are sensitive to signals from solid-state variable speed controls. If you have installed this type of control, choose and install another type of control. 6. Make sure the upper canopy is a short distance from the ceiling. It should not touch the ceiling. 1. Do not connect the fan to a wall mounted variable speed control. Use our proprietary provided wall control. 2. Make sure the dip switches are set correctly. 1. Check that all blade and blade arm screws are secure. 2. Most fan wobbling 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 this distance. Rotate the fan until the next blade is positioned for measurement. Repeat for each blade. The distance deviation should be equal within 1/8″. 3. If the blade wobble is still noticeable, interchanging two adjacent (side by side) blades can redistribute the weight and possibly result in smoother operation. WARNING: TO REDUCE THE RISK OF PERSONAL INJURY, DO NOT BEND THE BLADE ARM WHILE INSTALLING, BALANCING THE BLADES, OR CLEANING THE FAN. DO NOT INSERT FOREIGN OBJECTS BETWEEN ROTATING FAN BLADES. 1 . Turn the AC power off to fan, and re-do steps for programming on page 10. 2. If fan still has jerky movement, verify that both motor wire plugs are properly connected. 1 . Turn the AC power off to fan, and re-do steps for programming on page 10. 2. Do not turn off fan from wall switch. Use only remote to regulate fan. 12

****** Page 15 ****** INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO PROGRAM MULTIPLE FANS ON SINGLE CIRCUIT BREAKER. 1. Turn the power off at the breaker/service box. 2. Hang all fans by convenience cable located in top of motor to hook in ceiling bracket. This will allow you to easily access the leads from house and the leads of the fan. Do not connect house and fan leads, yet. 3. Make house lead connections to those of first fan, but do not install blades or motor cover. 4. Turn the breaker on. 5. Hold down the “set” button in battery compartment of one of the remote controls in close proximity to fan to be programmed first. 6. Let the first fan fully program. It will run forward and backward for about 5 minutes. 7. Once first fan is fully programmed, turn the power off from the breaker and disconnect the leads from the house to the fan just programmed. 8. Make house lead connections to second fan, but do not install blades or motor cover. 9. Change the dip switch positions on the second remote to a different position/frequency than those of the first fan’s remote. 10. Repeat steps 4 to 6. 11. Now, fully reconnect the leads of the first fan and fully install the blades and motor covers on both fans. Turn the breaker back on. 12. All your fans should now be installed and programmed to different remotes on the same circuit breaker. 13. Finally, with each remote and for each fan, hold down the “VI” button and let the fans program themselves again, but to the weight of the blades.
