Here is what comes in your box:

We recommend that you pull everything out of the box and lay it out. We have grouped the drawn components below with the hardware you’ll need for those parts. The screws below are drawn to scale to make it easier to identify what piece of hardware is needed to install each component.

Hunter Pro Tip:

Do not discard the hardware bags or mix parts from different bags. Make note of the symbol printed on each hardware bag. The symbols can be used to identify the appropriate hardware for each step.

Choosing the Right Installation Location

You probably bought this fan with a location in mind. Let’s check below to make sure it is a good fit.

Check the room dimensions:

FIG 8 Check the room dimensions

 

Check the outlet box:

FIG 9 Check the outlet box

 

Checking the Ceiling Angle:

Standard Mounting

FIG 10 Standard Mounting

If you have a flat ceiling:
Hang your fan by a standard downrod. Some fans come with a shorter downrod for a Low Profile installation.

FIG 11 Angled Mounting

If you have an angled or vaulted ceiling:

  1. You will need a longer downrod. (sold separately at HunterFan.com)
  2. If your ceiling angle is greater than 34°, you will also need an Angled Mounting Kit. (Sold separately at HunterFan.com)

 

Angled Mounting

A little more information on Angled Mounting:
For optimum performance and appearance, a longer downrod should be used with your Hunter ceiling fan when installing on high or angled ceiling. If your ceiling is angled greater than 34° you will also need an Angled Mounting Kit. Longer downrods and the Angled Mounting Kit are sold separately at HunterFan.com.

Hunter Pro Tip:

Determining if you need an Angled Mounting Kit:
Fold on the dotted line. Place against edge againts the wall. Slide towards the ceiling.
If the guide touches the wall but not the ceiling, you need an angled mounting kit.

Installing the Ceiling Bracket

You have two options for installation. Pick which one works best for your location. Remove any existing bracket prior to installation. Only use the provided Hunter ceiling bracket that came in your fan’s box.
