If you just put up a Hampton Bay ceiling fan, you might be wondering how to set up the remote. Programming a Hampton Bay fan remote is easy and only takes a few steps.

Tools You’ll Need

Before you get started, you’ll need:

  • A ladder
  • A Phillips screwdriver
  • The remote control that came with your fan
  • The user manual for your fan (if available)

Step 1: Locate the Dip Switches

Find the dip switches. This is the first step in programming your Hampton Bay fan remote. These are usually on the back of the remote or in the place where the batteries go.

Step 2: Match the Dip Switch Settings

Once you’ve located the dip switches, you’ll need to match the settings on the remote control with the settings on the fan. This is typically done by adjusting the dip switches so that they match the settings printed on a sticker inside the battery compartment of the fan or in the user manual.

Step 3: Install the Batteries

Now that the dip switches are set, you can put batteries in the remote. Make sure to carefully follow the manufacturer’s instructions, since different models may have different battery needs.

Step 4: Test the Remote

With the batteries installed, you can now test the remote to make sure it’s working properly. This can be done by standing on a ladder and pointing the remote at the fan. If everything is set up correctly, the fan should respond when you press the buttons on the remote.


Programming a Hampton Bay fan remote is a quick and easy process that can be completed in just a few steps. Whether you’re looking to control your fan from the comfort of your couch or simply want to avoid using a wall switch, a remote control is a great investment.

If you need additional help or have any questions, be sure to check out the Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Remote page or the User Manual for your specific fan model for more information. Good luck!
