There should be dip switches in/on both the remote control and the ceiling fan that enable you to change the control frequency. The only thing that you have to ensure is that the two components are set to a matching frequency.

The switches in the remote are located in the battery compartment just above the batteries. Remove the dome on the ceiling fan and you should find the switches for that unit. Just compare the two and match whatever changes you make from one unit to the other.

With many models of fans, each fan will have to be taken down to get to the remote receiver, which is often mounted flush to the ceiling, in order to change the codes. This is not difficult, but if you have any problem with doing it, call a local handyman who is familiar with ceiling fan installation.
