Question about Hampton Bay 54 In. Flemish Pewter Ceiling Fan with Heater
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.
