Use only with electrical wiring that is in good working order and that meets applicable codes and ordinances. If you have any questions whether your wiring is adequate, consult a qualified electrician.

While using your fan, you should follow the IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS listed below. As part of those instructions, we have used the word “WARNING” to indicate the level of hazard:
WARNING indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, could result in injury or death.


As with all electrical appliances, basic safety precautions should always be followed to reduce the risk of electric shock, fire, or injury to persons, including the following precautions:

  • Read all the instructions before using this fan.
  • Use this fan only as described in this manual. Any other use not recommended by the manufacturer may cause electrical shock, fire or injury to persons.
  • Do not operate the fan with a damaged power cord or after the fan malfunctions or has been dropped in any manner.
  • Use of extreme caution is necessary when any fan is used by or near children, disabled persons or pets and whenever the fan is left operating unattended.
  • Do not place the fan on a small, unlevel, uneven or any surface which might allow fan to tip or fall.
  • For proper operation, fan should be placed on a smooth, non-combustible, level surface.
  • Always unplug fan when not in use, when moving from place to place, when assembling or disassembling parts, and before cleaning.
  • The use of attachments, not recommended or sold by the manufacturer, may cause hazards.
  • Do not use outdoors.
  • Do not use fan in window. Rain may cause electrical hazard (for non-window models).
  • Do not operate the fan with blade guards or any safety device removed.
  • Avoid the use of extension cords due to risk of fire. If an extension cord must be used, the cord must be minimum 14 AWG and rated not less then 1875 watts.
  • Do not run power cord under carpeting. Do not cover cord with throw rugs, runners or the like. Arrange cord away from traffic area where it will not be tripped over.
  • Do not insert or allow any object to enter any openings on the fan. Doing so may cause electric shock and/or fire hazard. Avoid contact with moving parts.
  • This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.
  • Children should be supervised to ensure they do not play with the appliance.


Use your fan only in dry environments. This fan is not intended for use in a bathroom, laundry area, or similar locations, or near sinks, washing machines, swimming pools or other sources of water. Never locate fan where it may fall into a bathtub or other water receptacle. Do not use in damp environments such as flooded basements.

Do not touch fan motor when in use. This motor is hot when in use, to avoid burns, do not let bare skin touch hot surfaces.

Fans have arcing or sparking parts inside. Do not use near combustible materials or flammable gases or sources of heat.
Do not use in areas where gasoline, paint or flammable materials are used or stored. To prevent a possible fire, do not block air intakes or exhaust in any manner. Do not insert or allow foreign objects to enter any ventilation or exhaust opening as this may cause an electric shock, fire, or damage the fan.

Do not use with damaged cord or plug. Use with adequate electrical system that is up to code.

This product has a polarized two prong plug (one blade is wider than the other) that must be fully inserted in to a matching properly grounded outlet. This plug is designed to fit a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If the plug still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature.

Do not use this product with any solid-state speed control device. Do not operate any fan with a damaged cord or plug or after fan malfunctions, has been dropped or damaged in any manner. Do not operate fan with a broken blade, safety cage or any visual imperfections. Disconnect power before servicing. For repairs covered under warranty, see warranty statement. For all other repairs contact World and Main Customer Service by telephone or mail for information and assistance.

Avoid the use of extension cords due to risk of fire. If an extension cord must be used, the cord must be minimum 14 AWG and rated not less then 1875 watts. Do not use an extension cord unless the plug can be completely inserted into its receptacle. Unplug the fan when not in use. Do not operate fan with its ventilation obstructed.
