NOTE: Make all wiring connections using wire connectors (supplied). Make sure that all connections are tight, including ground, and that no bare wire

is visible at the wire connectors, except for the ground wire.

2. Refer to Figure 12 and 13 and connect the receiver wires to the supply wires and the fan motor wires as follows:

a.Securely connect the green grounding wires from the hanger ball and the hanger bracket to the supply grounding conductor (this may be a bare wire or a wire with green insulation).

b.Securely connect the supply white (neutral) wire to the receiver white (AC IN N) wire.

c.Securely connect the supply black wire (hot) wire to the receiver black (AC IN

L)wire.

d.Securely connect the fan motor white wire to the receiver white (TO MOTOR

N)wire.

e.Securely connect the fan motor black wire to the receiver red (TO MOTOR L) wire.

f.Securely connect the fan motor blue wire to the receiver blue (FOR LIGHT) wire.

!WARNING

Check to see that all connections are tight, including ground, and that no bare wire is visible at the wire connectors, except for the ground wire. Do not operate fan until blades are in place. Noise and fan damage could result.
