Today I’m going to show you how to change your frequency of your ceiling fan remote. Has your ceiling fan ever turned off and on without you ever even touching a button? Don’t worry you don’t have a ghost but you do need to change your ceiling fan remote frequency. If two or more fans have the same settings and are in close proximity of each other they will not be able to operate independently. To change your ceiling fan frequency you’ll need a ballpoint pen or a small screwdriver, a Philips head screwdriver and a ladder. To change the frequency on your ceiling fan first, be sure to turn the power off at the circuit breaker box. Detach the canopy from the mounting bracket. Retrieve the receiver and locate the dip switch settings. The dipswitch settings look like four sliding buttons.
Using a ballpoint pen or a small screwdriver, slide the buttons to create a new frequency combination. Be sure to record the new combination like we did here. Place the receiver back into the mounting bracket and attach the canopy to the mounting bracket. Remove the back of the remote control, slide the battery out of the way, and you’ll notice the dipswitch settings. Use your dipswitch settings from your receiver in the fan and change the dipswitch settings on the remote to the exact same ones. Once complete, put your battery back in, install the back of the remote cover and then turn the power back on to the fan and we’ll see if it works. There’s the light, there’s the fan!
