Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) There are 2 methods to accomplish this. One method is to perform a visual inspection of the DIP switch code settings located on the fan receiver and match them to the hand held transmitter.

2) If accessing the fan receiver will be difficult, you can take the handheld transmitter and step thru the 16 possible code combinations.

See DIP switch code combinations in the chart below:
