Programming Your Garage Door Remote

  • Programming your garage door remote and clearing the current garage door remotes from the opener varies slightly according to the model of your garage door system.
    All garage door openers have a learn button. To find the learn button you may have to remove the light cover on the garage door opener. The learn button can be black or a colour.
  • To program a new remote into the system hold the learn button until the indicator light blinks on the opener. While the indicator light is blinking press the button on your remote. Test the new garage door remote by pressing once to see if the door moves.
  • In most cases, erasing remotes from the garage door system is accomplished by pressing the learn button until the indicator light stops blinking. When the blinking stops press your remote button down and release.
  • A garage door opener can only maintain five remotes or four remotes and one keyless entry.
  • Programming Garage Door Remotes That Have Dip Switches
  • Dip switches in your garage door remote and opener have to match. That means the dip switches are placed in the same position.
  • Sometimes the garage door opener doesn’t have dip switches. Instead the opener will have only a learn button. To program the garage door remote push the learn button and at the same time press the garage door remote.
