    Harbor breeze fan remote control does not work
    The remote contol does not operate the lights or fans.
    I checked for power to the receiver and it was OK.
    I changed all of the possible dip switch settings and none of the settings worked.
    I changed the battery in the remote and the led on the remote lights up.
    Any suggestions

    Make sure the pull chains for the light and fan on the fan itself are not set to the off position.

If those are OK and everything is wired correctly then I would suspect a faulty remote and or receiver...

    "I changed all of the possible dip switch settings and none of the settings worked.
    " that would be between 81 and 100 possible settings, not necessary to try them all just move all switches to ON for both receiver and transmiter. Use a test lead to be sure you have a hot black going into the fan receiver and then try the remotes to see if you get 120 v on the black and white coming out of the receiver or the blue and white

    Does the fan have pullchains?

    Did you check the dip switches in the receiver?
