Programming Garage Door Opener
It is very frustrating when your remote is struggling to open your door consistently or has stopped working altogether. If this situation occurs, the solution may be as simple as reprogramming the remote or replacing the battery. This process is very easy, and we have outlined the most common steps below.

Step 1

Open your remote control per the manufacturer’s instructions (consult owner’s manual) and replace the batteries with good alkaline batteries.

Test the remote. If it still doesn’t work, proceed to step 2.

Step 2

Locate the learn code button on the unit on your ceiling. This button is typically located about 2-3 inches above the unit’s antennae wire.

Step 3

Press and release the learn code button one time.

Step 4

Press and release your remote button three times.
