I have a hampton bay fan on remote. The remote only operates the fan/light reliably from one position...on the floor by a railing overlooking a 2 storey room. If I attach the remote to ANY of the nearby walls the remote will operate the fan maybe 10% of the time.
But I figure it can't be the dip switches because it is positionally affected. I'd REALLY like to get this remote off hte floor (particularly since it's at the edge of a railing. I'd hate for it to fall 10 feet to the hardwood floor below)
