PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS.

When using electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of fire, electric shock, and injury to persons, including the following:

1)Read all instructions before using the appliance.

2)To avoid fire or shock hazard, plug the appliance directly into a 120V AC electrical outlet.

3)Keep the cord out of heavy traffic areas. DO NOT let the cord hang over the edge of a table or counter. To avoid fire hazard, NEVER put the cord under rugs, near heat registers, radiators, stoves, or heaters.

4)To protect against electrical hazards, DO NOT immerse in water or other liquids. Do not use near water.

5)Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near children, or by disabled people.

6)Always unplug the fan before moving it, putting on or taking off parts, cleaning,

or whenever the fan is not in use. Be sure to pull by the plug and not the cord.

7)Avoid contact with moving parts. DO NOT operate without fan grills properly in place.

8)DO NOT operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug, if motor fan fails to rotate, after the appliance malfunctions, or if it has been dropped or

damaged in any manner. Return appliance to manufacturer for examination, electrical or mechanical adjustment, or repair.

9) DO NOT operate in the presence of explosive and/or flammable fumes.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

(FOR REMOTE VERSION)

Step 1: Insert 2 AAA batteries into the back of the remote control.

Remote Control: Your remote control requires 2 AAA batteries for operation. To install the batteries, simply depress the back of the remote with your thumb on the spot marked OPEN. Insert batteries according to the diagram shown inside. Replace cover.

Step 2: Set the fan on a dry level surface.

Step 3: Plug cord into any standard 120V AC outlet.

Step 4: To turn the fan on press the POWER button on the remote control or on the control panel.

Step 5: The speed is adjustable by pushing either the speed button on the remote control, or on the SPEED button on the control panel. Push this button once for LOW, again for MEDIUM, and a third time for HIGH. Push a fourth time to repeat the sequence. To turn the fan OFF, push the OFF button on the remote control, or on the control panel.

Step 6: To oscillate the fan head, push the button marked OSCILLATE on the remote, or OSCILLATE on the control panel. Push a second time to stop oscillation.

Step 7: This fan comes equipped with a 15 level speed-setting timer. The first time you press the TIMER button it will be set for a 1/2 hour. From there you can change the TIMER by pressing the button which will increase one half hour at a time, with the maximum time being 7.5 hours.

Step 8: For a natural breeze movement, push the button marked BREEZE on the remote control or BREEZE on the control panel. This will vary the fan speeds faster and slower. By pressing the BREEZE button a second time, you activate the SLEEP setting. This function will be random for the first few hours, but will eventually slow the fan speed down, and when used in conjunction with the timer settings, will ultimately turn the fan off.

Note: The time can be used in conjunction with several other functions. For example: SLEEP + 4HR. TIMER causes the fan to gradually slow down over 4 hours and eventually turn off.
