1. This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is sub-
ject to the following two conditions: (1) this device may not cause
harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference
received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.
2. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits
for a Class B digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against
harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment gen-
erates, uses and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not in-
stalled and used in accordance with the instructions, may cause harm-
ful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guar-
antee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or televi-
sion reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by
one or more of the following measures:
Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from
that to which the receiver is connected.
Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
3. For use only with electrically reversible ceiling fans rated at 1.0 amp or
less, and fan incandescent light kits rated at 300 watts or less.
4. Not for use with shaded-pole or non-reversible motors. Not recom-
mended for use with the Hunter Original®.
Before Installing the Control:
1. Use the pull-chain switch to set the fan speed to the HIGH position
before installation. Do not use the pull-chain to change the fan speed
after installation, as damage to your ceiling fan or control may result.
The speed of the fan should only be changed by the control.
2. Set the ceiling fan light kit to the ON position before installation. The
light level should only be changed by the control.
Receiver Installation:
1. Disconnect power to the ceiling fan and light kit at the main electric
panel. Remove fuse or move circuit breaker to the OFF position. Turn
off wall switch.
2. IMPORTANT! Before installing this control, change the factory default
jumper switch settings to your own unique code. Refer to Figure 1.
Using small pliers or tweezers, pull out one or more of the three jumper
swtiches by clamping on the small metal strip. Place the jumper
switches in the desired spots. Be sure the jumper switch positions of
the transmitter and receiver match, or the ceiling fan will not func-
tion. Select different combinations of jumper switches to prevent mis-
operation due to other remote control fans, garage door openers, etc.
3. Install the ceiling fan according to its instructions, up to the point of
making the electrical connections.
4. Use the 2 large wire nuts supplied to connect the receiver and house
wiring, then use the 3 small wire nuts supplied to connect the receiver
and ceiling fan wiring. Refer to the Wiring Diagram in Figure 2.
Caution: Risk of Electrical Shock!
All wiring must be performed in accordance with national and local electri-
cal codes. If you are unfamiliar with the wiring codes, you should use a
qualified electrician.
To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not
install to control a receptacle, fluorescent light fixture, motor operated ap-
pliance, or transformer-supplied appliance. Use only to control one paddle-
blade ceiling fan and incandescent light fixture.
