    How to program a new remote of garage door opener

    If you have a garage door opener that uses rolling codes, you will need to program it, before it will work. This is a security feature that prevents your garage door from being opened by someone who has a generic garage door opener remote. If you don’t understand anything, then don’t hesitate to call a garage door expert.

    To program, follow these steps:

    1. Locate the “Learn” button on your garage door opener unit. This is typically a red or purple button.
    2. Press and hold the “Learn” button until the garage door opener unit’s indicator light starts blinking.
    3. With the “Learn” button still pressed, press and hold the button on your remote.
    4. Release both buttons when the garage door opener unit’s indicator light starts blinking rapidly. This indicates that it has been successfully programmed.
    5. Test your new remote to make sure it is working properly.
