Harbor Breeze ceiling fan remotes are one of the common replacement parts that you may need for your Harbor Breeze fan. What is the reason behind it? The honest answer is ceiling fan remotes are the most common parts that are highly sought after. Regardless of the brand, whether it is Harbor Breeze or another company. Remotes can get lost very easily. When a remote is no longer available, the ceiling fan is hardly used – many fans do not equip with pull chains to control them. Once the remote is lost, the fan remains useless until the new remote is obtained and programmed to communicate with the fan.
I’ve purchased a new Harbor Breeze remote, but cannot get the remote to communicate with my fan. What should I do?
It is a very common problem. To solve the problem, the only way you can use to fix it is to program the remote to talk to the fan. There are two ways that will be applicable in this case. Many ceiling fans come with dip switches. You will find one dip switch inside the fan and the other one inside the remote. In order to make them work, they should be set to the same settings. it means that if on dip switches, switches 1 and 2 are set to on, and 3 and 4 are set to off, then they should be the same on the remote and inside the fan.
Where do I find the dip switch inside the fan?
The first step is to ensure that the fan does have dip switches on it to talk. If you have got a remote that has the same part number, and it has dip switches on the remote control, then you will also get them inside the fan as well. The dip switch on the fin is available on the receiver. It is available inside the ceiling fan housing.
If your Harbor Breeze ceiling fan contains a downrod, the housing will be found near the bottom of the downrod before the motor and fan blades. If it does not have downrod, the housing that you are finding will be near the ceiling. The receiver will be present inside the housing. In order to access the receiver, you will have to unscrew the screws on the housing.
