Panasonic imported ceiling fans from Japan in the 1980s. Not much is known about these fans. Panasonic is a divison of Matsushita Electric, another one of their divisions, KDK, also imported ceiling fans from Japan. Some KDK and Panasonic models were the same. Some were also relabeled Tennessee Fan Co.
Many models had cloth pullcords that could become frayed or rip out, however a new one can easily be tied back on. As always with imported fans, capacitors and pullchains are the most likely parts to need replacing (see appropriate sections) and as with all older fans, with age and use the bearings may become dry or dirty and require oiling or replacement, see oiling section.
