Remote controlled ceiling fan issues

Small house, two remote controlled ceiling fans with lights.
.
Fan A Savoy House, about two years old. I took down the fan/light (not that easy) nothing inside appeared to be removable or have a dip switch. Yet the remote has a dip switch?

Fan B Westinghouse about 3 years old. The remote has a dip switch. I do not want to go through the trouble of taking down that fan to find the insides just a confusing.

The problem is, of course, the remotes turn on and off each other's fans.

I watched an isn't this easy YouTube video..how to Reset or Sync ceiling fan remotes. It obviously didn't help.

The Savoy House electronically learns the frequency on first time power up.
See page 10 in the manual below.

I can't upload photos very well.....took me an hour to get to this point. There is a tiny Fan Off/Set....not really a "button". I have pressed and poked on the white + sign, the tiny holes above and below it, with no luck..."Press and hold the "Fan Off//Set button for 6 seconds...etc...nothing happens...the light is supposed to blink twice.

You have to turn power off to the fan. In your case you will need to shut the breaker off to it.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if just the wall switch off or the circuit breaker off. However I am still not sure how or where to poke/push in the tiny, less than 1 cm by 1 mm hole??? I was poking with a blunt toothpick on the white +, and on the tiny holes above and below the +.

Shutting off a wall switch is also ok.

Are you reading the same thing I'm reading ?
It says to push the fan off/set button for six seconds. That button is the one with the red arrow.

For some reason....(stupidity) I was looking at the diagram figure 19 on the remote. Didn't realize it was the pairing process for Multiple Fans....Ay caramba, this has been so much fun...NOT.

Thanks so much for bearing with me.
