Outdoor Ceiling Fan With Light And Remote – The flush-style ceiling fan is mounted snugly beside an appartment horizontal fairly low ceiling where it really is taken care of, and where it delivers a comforting room breeze. It comes in several diameters, from about 28 to 60-inches, with respect to the size of room being fitted, and may cost typically from $30 to $300. It generally has three fan motor speeds, that happen to be reversible. Except for the various tools and possible other areas needed for installing them, their self-assemble kits have any devices. In many cases, the fan, that may have a unique lighting, will replace a ceiling permanent fixture.
Safety, The electricity have to be off once your there where the fan is to be installed. If the fan is replacing a permanent fixture, turn off its fuse or circuit breaker as well as flipping its wall change to the off position. Stand on a sturdy wide-berth step stool or ladder through the installation; do not lean or enter a twisted position while there. Also, wear protective eye-glasses or goggles. Furthermore, if additional auxiliary household wiring should be used, get professional advice or help first. Tools needed, instructions (electrical) eye-glasses or goggles step-stool/ladder Phillips screwdrivers pliers electrical tape knife or sissors AC tester light wire cutter/stripper tape measure (optional) electric drill and further screws for securing the junction box, if needed
Installation steps (seeing the fan installation instructions thoroughly). 1. Remove the permanent fixture from your ceiling. With the electricity off, slowly take away the shade, bulbs, and fixture screws from your electrical junction box in the ceiling. Let the skeleton fixture hang there. With the light tester, ensure that the wire connections to this particular fixture are cold (test light will remain off). Cut the wires, leaving 3-5″ of tail in order to connect the crooks to the ceiling fan motor assembly. If the residence is old, only two wires might exist, a black one and a white one. Tip: also look at the firmness with the electrical box in the ceiling. If it really is not solidly attached to the ceiling, add two extra screws to its top side, which can require drilling two holes in the box on their behalf. The ceiling fan is heavier than the permanent fixture. It also wobbles slightly during operation. 2. Install the mounting bracket. After stripping the ends with the tailing wires in the junction box cleanly, install the mounting bracket towards the box using the two 5/32″ screw-bolts provided. Let the tailing wires hang outside with the bracket. 3. Hang the motor assembly from your bracket. Insert the topside motor-hanger into the centralized holder with the bracket. Insert the plastic lock clip that holds it into place. Note: the hanging motor assembly really should swivel slightly. 4. Connect the wiring. Generally, the motor assembly has two so-called hot wires, a black one for the motor and a blue or off-color one for the lights being attached below it. Overlap the stripped ends of those two wires (motor and lights) together using the stripped end with the black ceiling wire in the box, and twist connect them together using the wire nut provided. Connect the white assembly wire towards the white ceiling wire the same way.
Then, to help keep these connections from loosening as the fan is working, tape the wide lower ends of those nuts on their wires with electrical tape. Also, attach the green fan wire (ground wire from your bracket frame) towards the electrical box if the box is also grounded using a third bare or green wire. Otherwise, if the electrical box in not grounded, ask a specialist concerning this green wire connection. Some will say to get forced out be, i.e., do nothing at all by using it. Others could suggest further wiring? 5. Install the flush-mount motor shroud. Install the motor shroud towards the far ends with the mounting bracket using the small screws provided. It covers/hides the sides with the motor along with the wiring and ceiling box. 6. Assemble the fan blades (3 to 5) and mount them. After deciding on the top or bottom reversible blade color scheme preferred, attach the blades on their end brackets using the screws and washers provided. Then mount the blades towards the bottom side of fan motor using the bolts, lock washers, and dampening gaskets provided. Note: these latter pieces sometimes are partially pre-installed towards the motor to help keep them separate from your rest with the kit hardware.
Tip: to help keep the motor from becoming too off-level with this step, install the blades one at a time opposite together to begin with. 7. Install the lighting assembly. Attach the fan’s lighting assembly towards the small round central housing unit just below the fan blades through the quick-wire-connectors and small screws provided. Install the glass shades, bulbs, and pull-chain extenders in the order instructed. Note: a housing cap is provided if the lighting assembly just isn’t wanted unconditionally. 8. Test the fan and lights. After turning the electricity back on, flip the wall change to on. Set the pull-chain switches as desired. Often, the fan lighting is set into the future on using the wall switch, as the fan itself is controlled by the pull-chain switch only, initially set in the off position. Note: The ceiling fan features a reversible motor switch that enables the draft either to go upward or downward as preferred. For more information on ceiling fan installation, see the following sites.
