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.
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.
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.
Duplicating a garage door remote is faily easy.
Now you have a new garage door remote.
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.
Erasing or unprogramming a garage door remote is faily easy.
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.
