Simple Steps for Programming a Garage Door Remote

  1. Using a safe and stable ladder, find the “Learn” button on your opener.
  2. Press and release the “Learn” button.  It should illuminate.
  3. Within 30 seconds, press and release the button on the remote you’re trying to program.

Programming a garage door opener remote control doesn’t have to be challenging or mysterious. In fact, it should only take a few moments when you know the right steps to take.

First, find a ladder that is stable and that can provide access to your garage door opener unit. Climb the ladder and locate the Learn button on your opener, which is typically located on the back or side panel of your opener unit. Press and release the Learn button and you should see it illuminate.

Once you’ve released the button, you have about 30 seconds to press the button of the remote control that you’d like to program to open and close your garage. Once you press and release the remote control button within those 30 seconds, you should be good to go.

Be sure to try out your garage door opener remote control to ensure it’s working properly.
