IMPORTANT

Your ceiling fan is designed to be installed either in the standard manner, or in the close-to-the-ceilingmanner. Using the standard method, the hanger ball/downrod assembly will suspend the fan several inches below the ceiling cover. Using theclose-to-the-ceilingmethod, the ceiling cover installs directly on the fan motor housing, thus mounting the fan3-1/2inches closer to the ceiling than the standard method. In no case should the fan blades be lower than seven feet above the floor. Depending on your desired mounting method, proceed to “INSTALLING HANGER BALL/DOWNROD ASSEMBLY” for standard mounting, or to “INSTALLING CEILING COVER ON FAN MOTOR HOUSING” forclose-to-the-ceilingmounting.
