Most people use a paper shredder, not a fan. Try posting in the correct area. Fantastic question but I have no idea what your asking. Make model etc helps a lot.

How do I get the remote to work fan and light


There are dip switches in the fan and in the remote that need to be set to the same numbers. You can set them to whatever you want, as long as they match. If these numbers don't match it won't control your fan.

Here's a few lines from the user manual:
"IMPORTANT! Before installing this control, check the factory dip switch settings. Refer to Figure 1. Be sure the dip switch positions of the transmitter and the receiver match, or the ceiling fan will not function."

Here's a link to the PDF manual, which has an explanation and a figure in the middle of where you can locate these dip switches on the transmitter and the receiver both.

Our remote to the fan is not working


Try changing the batteries int he remote.

If anyone opened the battery box for the remote recently, the "DIP" switches may have been moved. These switches make the communication between fan and remote match - (in case you have several fans in the house, you only want one remote controlling one fan). You will have to pull the besel off of the fan (where the pole comes to the ceiling). You should be able to see a set of 4, 6 or 8 little slider switches on a small electric board. Make sure the switches are set the same on both the fan and remote. If they are set differently, they will not communicate.

If that doesn't work, there are many options of what can be wrong (bad remote, bad radio receiver on the fan, interference from other radios, ...).

Good luck,

Ceiling fan lights & fan come on without using remote


on some you set a code in the remote control ..then you teach that code to the control unit ..on others you have to set dip switches on the remote control and on the fan to match .. some of the units have dip switches on the top of the fan motor housing ..some have code setting switches on the control unit located inside the fan .. at any rate the fan and remote have to have matching codes ..
here is some information on some units
http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-remote-controls.php

sometimes the switches are set correctly but the contacts get dirty .. so on the remote, behind the batteries is the code switches .. you can operate each one a few times to clean them ... remember where they are set ... set them back that way unless you are going to change the switches on the module in the fan ... you can check your neighbors remote to see if its on the same setting .. if so one of you has to change dip switch settings on both the fan and remote.. on some older units the code is fixed on the receiver in the fan .. the code is marked on its box .. that code has to be set into the remote unit and is not adjustable ..

this might be the mfg for the hampton bay fans ..it might be a little help

One simple thing to check is to make sure the DIP switches in the remote and the receiver match up. There should be a set of small switches (usually inside the battery cover) that are set for a sequence. The sequence on the receiver must be the same. Otherwise, you probably have a bad remote or receiver.

Ceiling fans on same frequency


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.

Remote control settings


There's two options, depending on the brand of remote. The most common is that the reciever located in the fan ceiling canopy has the same switches. Check how they are set and match it on the remote. The other option is that the reciever matches the frequency of whatever the remote is set to. To set this you have to turn off the circuit, wait a minute or so, turn it back on. Then on the remote, hold down the "stop" button for a few seconds. It should be set. I'd check the receiver first though. I should mention also, that when they come from the factory, the switches are usually all in the OFF position (or possibly all in the ON position). Unless they were changed on installation (which may be the case if you have more than one remote controlled fan) they are probably set that way. Try that first.

Two ceiling fans, both remotes control the same fan


Most likely the dip switches on the remote receivers don't match (on the second fan, the one that doesn't work). While the remote dip swithes on both remotes match the working fan. You can simply reset the dip switches on the second fan receiver to match the one working remote, i.e. you don't need to have a second remote, one can work both fans as long as the codes (dip switches match). If you want you can make all the remotes the same, that way you have two remotes, or if you want them independent each remote and remote receiver must have unique codes (dip switch settings).
