  2. Read and follow instructions carefully. Failure to comply with instructions could result in fire, electric shock, injury to persons, and/or damage to equipment.
  3. To reduce the risk of overheating and possible damage to other equipment, this speed controller is only intended for use with the iliving Variable Speed Shutter Exhaust Fans (ILG8SF7V, ILG8SF1 ov, ILG8SF12V, ILG8SF16V, ILG8SF1 av, ILG8SF20V, and ILG8SF24V). Do not install this remote control kit on any other fan or appliance.
  4. All wiring should conform to the United States National Electrical Code and all applicable local/state regulations.
  5. Do not mount the control kit in an area which will likely expose the control kit to moisture.
  6. Make certain the entire installation is grounded as a precaution against possible electrical shock.
  7. Do not exceed maximum amperage rating of the control kit as overloading can result in damage to the shutter exhaust fan and control kit.
  8. When wiring an electrical appliance or device follow all electrical and safety codes, as well as the most recent United States National Electrical Code (NEC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
