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:

Check the outlet box:

You must be able to secure the fan to the building structure or fan-rated outlet box.

Checking the Ceiling Angle:

Standard Mounting

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

If you have an angled or vaulted ceiling:

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

Angled Mounting

A little more information on Angled Mounting:For optimum performance and appearance, a longer download should be used with your Hunter ceiling fan when installing on a high or angled ceiling. If your ceiling is angled greater than 34° you will also need an Angled Mounting Kit. Longer down rods and the Angled Mounting Kit are sold separately at Pro Tip:Determining if you need an Angled Mounting Kit:Fold on the dotted line. Place against edge against 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

Hunter Pro Tip: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.Hunter Pro Tip:The machine screws are the ones that came with your outlet box.

Do this first!WARNINGTo avoid possible electrical shock, before installing your fan, disconnect the power by turning off the circuit breakers to the outlet box associated with the wall switch location.Option 1:Machine ScrewsUse machine screws (provided with outlet box) and washers when securing to existing ceiling fan-rated outlet box. Make sure it is securely installed and is acceptable for fan support of 31.8 kg / 70 lb or less.

Option 2:Wood ScrewsUse wood screws and washers (included) when securing to support structure with the approved electrical outlet box. Drill 9/64 in pilot holes in a support structure to aid in securing the ceiling bracket with hardware found in the hardware bag.
