Good day, everyone. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors, and today I'm going to show you how to set the dip switch for a ceiling fan. For this job, we'll be using a pair of needle nose pliers. So here we have our remote and our wireless receiver that goes into the ceiling fan. A lot of times these come preset but if you want to set more than one fan to a switch you can do it by setting the dip. So here we'll put number 4 down and over on this side we have one, two, and three, already connected. Now with the remote it's a little bit different because we have a jumper that goes from one connector to the other instead of a code that we can put in. So it goes from one to four and if you need to move that you take your needle nose pliers, gently grab the jumper and pull up. I want to move it over here, you can do that by setting it back down and pushing it on with the needle nose pliers. Each connector that is connected needs to be facing up on your wireless receiver. So here we have number one is not connected, so we need to make sure that on our switch here one is not connected by two, three, and four are. I'm Joshua Clement with Lighty Contractors and we just talked about how to set the dip switch for your ceiling fan. Thanks for watching, good luck with this project.
