Fan Modes

The Fan has three modes being: Normal, Natural, and Sleep.

NOTE: Modes can only be selected with the remote control by pressing the “Mode”  button.

With the Fan running in “Normal” mode (Red Mode Light), press the “MODE” button on the remote control and the mode will change to “Natural” mode (Green Mode Light). Press the “MODE” button again and the mode will change to “Sleep” mode (Mode Light will turn Off).

Press the “MODE” button again, and it will cycle back to “Normal” mode. (Red Mode Light)

Normal Mode

The “Normal” Mode (Red Light) is set by default when the unit is first turned on. The wind remains a constant flow.

Natural Mode

The “Natural” mode (Green Light) creates variable Wind Patterns so as to simulate the variable winds that you would experience outdoors.

In this mode the speed of the fan continually cycles through a mixed selection of low, medium, high and off in set intervals.

Depending on which Fan Speed is selected, the wind pattern will be different

Sleep Mode

The “Sleep” mode (No Mode Light) creates wind patterns that are the same as the Natural Mode wind patterns, however, when the fan is set to either Medium or High Speed, the pattern will drop a speed level after approximately 30 minutes.

For Example: If High Speed Fan and the Sleep Mode is selected, this will be the same wind pattern as High Speed setting in Natural Mode. However, after approximately 30 minutes, the wind pattern will automatically drop down to the same wind pattern as if Natural Mode was selected at Medium fan speed.

After approximately a further 30 minutes, the wind pattern will automatically drop down to the same wind pattern as if Natural Mode was selected at low fan speed.

The fan will continue to run in the Low Speed Natural Mode until manually turned off.

Note: To have the fan automatically turn off at your desired time in this mode, use the “Timer” function to select the auto off timer.


Use this power-saving feature if you want the appliance to turn off automatically.

To select the Off time, press the “TIMER” button on the remote control once. It will advance to 0.5h as indicated by the indicator lights. The fan will turn off naftern approximately 0.5 hours

Each consecutive press will advance the timer at 0.5h increments until it reaches a maximum time of 7.5h.

The time set will be indicated by the sum of the lights which are illuminated. i.e. if the 0.5h + 2h + 4h lights are illuminated, this adds up to 6.5 hours. The fan will turn off after approximately 6.5 hours

To turn off the timer, or to reset to a new time, continue to press the “TIMER” button until it cycles back to where no timer lights are illuminated.

Press the “OFF” button to turn the appliance off.
