    Thank you for verifying my guess about the dip switches. Now I will have to see how easy it will be to reach the switches in the fan cowling.

There is a "dip switch" on nearly all fan remote units, much like a garage door opener has. To keep all the fans in your home from operating at one time, each fan needs a seperate "code". To use your other remote, you need to locate the receiver unit in the fan, usually in the "canopy". This is the bowl looking piece against the ceiling. then note the "code" which is the position of the switches. For instance, most have a block with 4 switches, and if the first is "on", and the remaining are "off", that is it's set code. This "code" can be changed to any combination of "on , off" that you like. BUT, you must also open the remote control and set it's switch to the exact same "Code", or order of "on off" as your Fan receiver. Usually the control "Dip switch" is in the battery compartment.

We install 2 fans in differents rooms, after a few


There is a small opening on the top of the fan with four small (DIP style) switches. In order for the remote to work, both the fan and remote must have the same combination in the switches. Remove the battery cover from the remote to have access to the switches, then using a small tool (a ball point pen will work just fine) set the switches to the same combination both in the remote and the fan. For example: If you set the remote to: off, off, on, on; then the fan should also be: off, off, on, on. You can set the remote for the other room with a different combination as to avoid any interference between the two. Please rate this solution if it was helpful. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!

Fan does not reverse. the wireless remote does not have a button to reverse the fan nor the chain pulls cause the fan to reverse direction. is there such a thing as technical support for hampton fans ?


Only the remote decides when the fan reverses. Weird, I know. Depending on room temperature and selected temperature (on the remote), the fan will reverse direction. For example: If you set the remote temperature (set temp.) for 74 degrees and the actual room temperature is 70, the fan will reverse to bring the warmer air (which is always closer to the ceiling) down and warm the room until the set temperature is reached, then the fan turns itself off. The remote monitors room temp and selected settings and repeats the cycle.

Need manual to program remote to a different frequency


Each fan with have a receiver unit mounted in the housing, usually above the fan up against the ceiling. Each receiver unit will have 4 "dip pins" which allow the code to the remote to be set. In order for two fans originally installed with the same code to be run separately, one fan will have to be taken down, and the code changed on the receiver unit. Then you will have to purchase a new remote and set the same code on its dip pins (usually under the battery.) It's easiest to buy a replacement remote WITH a receiver AND a transmitter in it. You can either wire in the new receiver (setting the code differently than the existing one on BOTH the receiver AND the transmitter) OR just put the receiver aside and program the new code that you've set in the old one into the transmitter.

Hampton Bay Windward II dip switches


The CODE SWITCH RECEIVER should be located in the CANOPY (the bracket hanger). !!WARNING!! YOU ARE ENTERING A HIGH VOLTAGE ELECTRICAL ZONE!!
It will be tucked in among the electrical wiring and inside the hanger bracket.

Simply pull it out and you will see the CODE SWITCHES. There are 16 CODE combinations that can be used. Both the REMOTE and the RECEIVER MUST be set with the SAME CODE.
Good luck. :)

Remote control


in the remote and the fan the little blue box is called a dip switch
you will have to open fans base to access the remote power sender
on both the fan and remote the dip switches have to match in order for the remote to work the fan properly
or your signal will never make it to remote box

The dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. They all come with the same default setup of the dip switches (all in the "on" position and therefore they are all on the same radio frequency). That's fine unless there is a similar remote control fan nearby. So a remote might talk to several new fans if they are similar brand or same remote etc on the default dip switch settings and therefore same radio frequency. It's up to you to change the dip switches if you need to. You need to. They give you the ability to change the frequency so you don't control a similar fan down the hall, upstairs etc , while also controlling the one in the room that you intended to control ie your problem. As long as the remote and the fan match, they will talk to each other. So you have to change the dip switches on one of the remotes and the fan you are using that remote on to something different, but matching. There are usually four dip switches, usually all in the "on" position. So, for example, change the first dip switch to off on the remote and do the same to the fan - turn first dip switch off. You'll probably have to take the fan down and take off the top to get at the dip switches. That should fix the problem.

Remote Control Problem


I had this problem. One day everything worked. The next day the fan ran at 1 speed and the remote didn't turn on the light, change fan speed, nothing. I changed batteries on the remote - no good. As you should know, the dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. (They let you change radio frequency so that you don't control a similar fan down the hall as well as the one in the room that you intended to control.) Anyway, come to find out from the fan guy at Home Depot that sometime the dip switches on the fan "fall" out of place leaving the remote unable to talk to the fan. Sounded crazy, but sure enough one of the dip switches on the fan wasn't tightly in place. Once all the dip switches were tightly in place (with the fan dip switches matching the remote dip switches) everything ran fine. To change the dip switches on my fan that meant uninstalling the fan from the ceiling and taking the big top cover off to expose the dip switches.

Remote calibration


I installed three fans in the same room and one remote ran all three. In order to get the dimmers all to bring the lights up and down together, I changed the dip-switches in the fan housing so that the remote would only work one fan at a time. I then brought the dimmer lights all the way to bright. After all the lights were equally bright, I again altered the dip-switches so that all three and the remote were identical. The remote then dimmed all three lights equally.
