How to Program & Unprogram Garage Door Opener Remote For All Models

How to program garage door remote control?

If you have just purchased a new garage door remote control or want to re-connect an old remote control to your garage door opener, the process is actually very simple.

Each remote control is programmed differently, so be sure to consult your owner’s manual for specific instructions. In general, you will need to press the Learn button on the back of the garage door opener, and then press the button on the remote control. Generally, you’ll have a 30-second time limit between pressing the learn button and needing to press the button on the remote.

Once the two devices are synchronized, you should be able to operate your garage door opener with the remote control.


Why my garage door remote control stopped working?

There are a few common reasons why your garage door remote control stop working.

One possibility is that the batteries in the remote control have died. Another possibility is that the transmitter on the garage door opener has stopped working. Or the remote control has reset itself due to signal interference.

We suggest starting with reconnecting your remote control to the door opener unit by following the steps:

1- Locate the Learn button on the back of the door opener unit.

2- Press the Learn button

3- Press the button on your remote control

After doing step 3, the remote should be connected to the opener unit and should operate normally. If that is not the case, contact us for more info to troubleshoot the issue.


Do universal remotes work on garage door opener?

In general, only garage door openers that use either dip switches or fixed code systems will be compatible with a universal remote. If your garage door opener uses a rolling code system, it will not be compatible with a universal remote. The best way to determine whether or not your garage door opener is compatible with a universal remote is to consult your owner’s manual or the manufacturer of your garage door opener. Additionally, you can try pressing the “learn” button on your garage door opener and then holding down the button on your remote that you want to use to operate the door. If the door opens, then your garage door opener is probably compatible with your universal remote. However, if the door does not open, then it is likely that your garage door opener is not compatible with a universal remote.

If your garage door opener is not compatible with a universal remote, you may need to contact a garage door company in your area to assist you with that.


How do I duplicate a garage remote?

Duplicating a garage door remote is very easy. Follow the steps below:

1- Locate the Learn button on the back of the door opener unit. Most openers have the learn button in either blue or pink color.

2- Press the Learn button once

3- Press the button on your remote control once

Done. Now you have a new garage door remote.


Will any remote work with garage door opener?

The answer to this question is: it depends.

Some garage door openers have a specific frequency that is required for the remote to work. Others use rolling codes, which means each time you press the button on the remote, the code changes so that no one can hack into your system. Only garage door openers that use either dip switches or fixed code systems will be compatible with a universal remote. Contact us if you are not sure which type of system your garage door opener uses.


How do I erase or unprogram a garage door remote?

Erasing or unprogramming a garage door remote is faily easy.

1- Locate the Learn button on the back of the door opener unit.

2- Press the Learn button for 3-5 seconds or untill the light turns off

Now you have erased all the remote controls that were connected to the door opener.

What Our Clients Say

Based on 150 reviews
Mohamed came referred to me by a close friend to help with my garage door cable snapping! Mohamed was professional, patient, and took the time to explain what was needed. He even serviced the springs that became unwound and lubricated all the parts that needed it. While my garage door eventually needs to be replaced he bought me some time to decide what we are looking for. He wasn’t pushy at all and I feel comfortable booking him in as soon as we are ready to replace our doors. Can’t recommend his services enough!

My garage door springs were broken and it was very difficult to open the door manually so I contacted Pro Entry to come in to take a look. Mohammed was my service tech and he came on time and was very professional. He did a great job in making sure that the replacement springs were installed correctly. I also opted to replace the rollers which were looking worn. Beyond that he did a great job in setting up the garage door openers. Very happy with the service and would highly recommend.

Very good experience. Mel was very quick to locate a technician to handle my emergency. My garage door could not open, so I was unable to access my car, and needed my problem resolved the same day. The technician Anwar was great. He contacted me to advise that his earlier appointment was delayed and when he would get to me. He was courteous, funny and dealt with my issue quickly. I will definitely keep Pro Entry in my contact list and refer them to anyone I know who needs garage door services. Great experience.

Quite the easy experience! All three gentlemen were experienced and able to complete the removal of the old and replacement with a new garage door (including tracks and all). They listened, they explained and worked tirelessly until the job was completed. They were recommended to us and we have no qualms about recommending them. Well done, gentlemen! Thank you

Responsive, honest and very thorough! They came the same day and Mohammed was absolutely amazing! They found so many issues whereby the original installer took short cuts and didn’t follow manufacturer instructions!
