If you have a remote control for your garage door that hasn’t yet been programmed, we want to give you tools and knowledge to do it yourself whenever you need to. The process is relatively simple, so everyone should be able to program their garage door opener!
Though some brands of garage doors have different ways of programming the remote control openers, many of them are similar. These instructions should work for anything made by Chamberlain, Liftmaster or Linear, which are very common types of garage doors.
Getting Your Opener Ready
First of all, you have to locate the “learn” feature on the main garage door opener. Depending on the type of garage door you have, the “learn” button might be in a different place. If you follow the wires on the machine, you should find it. It is usually located on the side or the rear of the main garage door opener. The button might vary in shape and color according to what type of door you have.
After the “learn” button is located, you might want to consider clearing the garage door openers that the main garage door opener remembers. If you have lost your garage door opener and are programming a new one, this will prevent people from being able to gain access to your home on the off chance that they find your garage door opener and use it.
Teaching Your Garage Door Controls New Tricks
To clear the other openers, hold down the “learn” button for 20 seconds. After that’s done, you can program or reprogram your garage door remotes. Hold the remote button down and press the “learn” button for just a moment. There should be a click, and the lights on the device might flash for a moment. That means it worked. Repeat the process for multiple remotes, up to five.
