I added a new attribute with Default Value set to Yes.

enter image description here

I added the attribute to my attribute set and edited the product, but it is set to No by default.

How can I fix it?

This is not a bug. It's a feature.
The default values serves as "default" from now on. It is not added to products existing prior to setting this default value.
If you create a new product, you should see the "yes" value selected.
There is no "out of the box" way of setting the default value to existing products.

  • Ok, I see. But they could have solved it in a way that the value is getting resetted to the default value if you add the attribute to a attribute set, but only on all the products which have the attribute set.

    yes, it is possible. But it's not that easy. Anyway...that's irrelevant. The main idea is that it does not work the way you expected it to work. I had the same reaction the first time this happened to me.
