Reset Garage Door Opener Remotes


How to Reset the Remote Code on Your Garage Door Opener

Your LiftMaster garage door opener has a remote that allows you to open the door from the warmth and comfort of your car. It’s important to know that the door and remote are programmed with a generic code when you first receive them. That means that you’ll need to set a custom code before you start using your remote. 

It’s also a good idea to change your garage door opener code from time to time. Doing so helps to discourage intruders and ensure the security of your garage.  If you find that your garage door has a malfunction and you need to reset the code continually, contact a LiftMaster professional, like Mile High Garage Doors, for repair help.

Thankfully, changing the code for the garage door opener is easy. In most cases, you should be able to change the code yourself without help from a repair professional. How you change the code will depend on whether your garage door opener uses a wall-mounted keypad or not.  

How to Change the Opener Code if You Have a Keypad

Changing the remote code on the garage door opener for your Denver home is a quick, easy process if you use a keypad. 
  1. Go to the motor unit, which is likely located on the ceiling of your garage.
  2. Depress the “Learn” button on the side of the motor and hold it down.
  3. Release the button when the light next to it turns off. This erases the old code.
  4. Depress the “Learn” button again and wait until the light comes on.
  5. Go to your wall-mounted keypad and type in your new code.
  6. Make sure the motor unit’s light blinks after you enter the code.
  7. Press the “Learn” button again and wait until the light turns back on.
  8. Press any button on your remote.

The motor unit’s light will blink to let you know that the new code has been programmed. A Mile High Garage Doors repair professional can assist if you are unable to access the motor unit yourself.
