Adjust the dip switches in the remote to match those in the Hampton Bay ceiling fan to ensure the fan follows the command input into the device. By adjusting these switches, it is possible to ensure the commands only affect the fan with which it is associated.
Dip switches are a panel of four rocker switches. In the remote, they are under the batteries. In the fan, accessing these switches requires removing the light kit or the cap found in the center where the arms of the fan meet. Matching these switches coordinates the frequency of the fan and remote. Match the dip switch settings of two fans in the same room to match those of a single remote to control both fans with one unit.
