It is another question that visitors usually ask. After purchasing a new Harbor breeze ceiling fan remote, you will definitely want the new remote to communicate with the old Harbor Breeze fan that you own. Programming a remote for a ceiling fan is a different task in comparison with a TV remote as the remote and your ceiling fan contain dip switches. To find out, you need to remove the battery cover from the back of the remote. Have a look there to find out if there are dip switches inside it. Usually, they are located behind the battery cover. Here is how they look like:
To perform this task, you have to see the dip switches inside the fan and on the remote. Ceiling fans use IR to communicate, or infrared frequencies. Similar to a radio frequency, the broadcaster and the listener should be using the same frequency to talk with each other.
So, if the dip switches are set a certain way on the remote, they must be compatible with the inside of the fan.
I changed the batteries on my Harbor Breeze ceiling fan remote, and now I have to re-program the remote. What do I do?
This is posted by a visitor who has a Harbor Breeze A25TX005R ceiling fan, which comes with a learning code. Here are Harbor Breeze remote programming instructions:
You need to switch off the power and switch it on again to activate the learning code.
Within 30 seconds of the fan turning back on, you should hold the hi and low buttons from the remote during this time.
Hold these buttons for more or less 5 seconds, and the remote will start blinking. It indicates that the sequence is successful.
Here is a video below that shows how can you do these steps.
