Can't get the Wayne Dalton 3016 remote to work and the new univer

Hi I owned a Wayne Dalton 3016 garage opener about 5 years ago. Some how the remote control does not work even I change the battery. I went to Lowe's and they told me that the remote sometime it die but all four of them? Are they right? They recommended me to buy the universal garage door opener remote control (Clicker) model KLIK1U. So I bought it and follow their 7 step instruction but did not work. My question is: Are Lowe's right about the remote just die and if they are right then what solution do I have about the Universal remote control from Clicker? Thank you!!

    I purchased the clicker, as well...no luck. I then purchased a Wayne Dalton kit which includes 1 keyless entry unit and 2 remote 3-button transmitters. I followed the corresponding instructions with both the garage door opener and the new products...still no luck. I'm at a loss as to what to do next. Looking forward to someone's reply and hopefully a solution.

I am having the same problem. Bought universal remote from Lowes and won't work with the Wayne Dalton. Not sure what else to do but keep looking for a system that uses the 303 Mhz not the 372.5 as suggested in the "Clicker" manual. If anyone figures it out post it. Thanks.

Lowes is not what I would call a qualified Garage Door information service. I have been in the door business for 12 years and am familiar with all makes and models. The Liftmaster Universal Remote will work for any garage door opener, but for some openers it does require that you install a reciever board which Liftmaster does sell as well. The remotes contain a circuit board that rarely goes bad. Usually only if it gets wet. I might suggest bending the prongs inside the remote that make contact with the battery, sometimes they do not make a tight contact. Also check to make sure the battery is in the right way, I know your not a dummy but just check. Make sure you are programming the remote correctly, you will know if you hear a click or the light on the opener flashes. Hope this helps..... FLIPSTUR

That is like asking guy on the street how to do heart surgery. Really, would all four remotes die. Come on. Do you have a LOCK or VACATION button. You probably turned it on and locked out the remotes. Read your manual!

I installed a new garage door opener in Sept, all was good until my neighbor installed a new on 1 week ago-now my garage door is opened when i get up, can i reprogram my unit?


Hi Diane.... yes. Newer garage door openers don't have changeable codes inside the unit or transmitters. You use the learn button to erase all the memory & to program transmitters into the unit. Each transmitter has a unique signal permanently set at the factory.
If you have had your garage door opener for a few years, you have to make a change on the back of the motor unit up by the ceiling and in the remote[s] by changing one or more tiny switches, called dip switches. Open up the remote and and take a look. If you have the dip switches, a series of tiny rocker switches that can rock one way or the other, then just change one or more of them to the opposite side and do the same with the set of dip switches on the back of the motor in the garage that moves the door.

If you have a newer system, one with no dip switches, you will just erase the memory and reprogram it with a new memory. To do that:

Programming Steps: 1) Locate the smart button on the motor head which is directly under the screw terminals where the push button and photo-cell wires connect to the unit and above the antenna wire. You may have to remove a lens or light cover to gain access to the learn button. 2) Push the smart button momentarily (Holding the smart button until the L.E.D. light beside the button goes out will erase all transmitter and keyless entries that are programmed into the unit) and verify the
L.E.D. light next to the button is lit solid. 3) Push the transmitter button that you want to use for that door within thirty seconds and before the
L.E.D. goes out. The L.E.D. will flash once and the transmitter will operate the door the next time the button is pushed. 4) If you have more than one door and a multi-button transmitter repeat steps 2-3 above for each door by using a different transmitter button for each unit. (Using the same button for more then one door at the same location will cause all the doors using that button to open and close at the same time and is not recommended.) The openers normally come with a single or a 3-button transmitter but 2-button and
4-button transmitters are also available as an option. 5) Repeat steps 2-3 above if you have more than one transmitter to program into your garage door opener.

Went to my garage to get items out of freezer and my garage door opener was down, no one handle the remote, or push any buttons at all, went back to the garage to get bottle water and the door was wide...




Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ?½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

Or a remote in someone

We went thru the steps to program the KLIK1U to our W Dalton GDO, but it doesn't work.


If you go to the web site listed below about 1/2 way down the page you can click on "programming video". Maybe that will help.

Chamberlain remote has stopped working, new


WHEN YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY NO NEED TO REPROGRAM THE REMOTE.
THE FLASHING LIGHT TELLS YOU IT IS SENDING A SIGNAL THAT IS BEING RECIEVED IT IS JUST NOT THE CORRECT CODE TO OPEN THE DOOR.
REPROGRAMING THE REMOTE SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM

My garage door doesn't open


BE SURE THE EYES ARE AIMED PROPERLY.

IF THEY ARE POINTED AT EACH OTHER AND THE LIGHTS DON'T WORK YOU MAY HAVE PULLED A WIRE LOOSE - CHECK THE CONNECTIONS.

IF LIGHTS ARE ON AND IT STILL WON'T WORK, UNPLUG THE UNIT WAIT ABOUT 5 MIN. PLUG IT BACK IN & TRY AGAIN.

HOPE THIS HELPS

Sounds like a bad board in the main drive unit. If you call their customer service, they will walk you thru a short troubleshoot, then more than likely send you a new board. The phone # is 630-279-3600 located in illinois. have your model # and serial # ready. serial # will be on the PC board of the main unit. Hope this helps

Orange light flashes 5 times


It sounds like it might be a capacitor or possibly an RPM sensor. If your opener is 10 years or older it might be better to replace the whole unit. your best bet would be to call a local professional.
hope this helps.

Chamberlain garage door opener unit-is it compatible with craftsman keypad?


Hello,Linda well this is your lucky day ,I have installed garage door openers for sears for 10 years and i can tell you that craftsman,chamberlain ,and liftmaster are all the same machine and manufactured under the liftmaster name , if you buy it from home depot it will be a chamberlain ,if you buy it at sears ,it will be a craftsman, and if you go to commercial building supplier it will be a liftmaster! now getting that out of the way even though they are all compatible ,there is one thing that stands in their way and that,s time ,For example if your chamberlain machine is 5 years old and you went to sears last week ,the chances of the frequency being the same are not good , most likely you have the wireless keypad , one way to test the sears keypad against the chamberlain machine is to locate the smart button on your machine ,this button allows for programming of remotes and keypads , to test and see exactly what im talking about take your remote and locate the smart button ,if you have three buttons on the remote press one of the buttons that are not being used on the remote ,above the smart button their will be a blinking light ,if you press your remote button you will notice the light go from a blink to a rapid flash , This is telling you that you are sending a signal for programming to the machine , well the keypad is exactly the same all you have to do is push the enter button on the keypad and have someone watch for the rapid blinking light ,if they are compatible the light will blink rapidly on the machine so all you have to do now is have someone press the smart button once on the machine your indicator light will now be a solid light you will have approx 60 seconds then to put a 4 digit code in the keypad and then press and hold down the enter button on the keypad , at this point you will notice the lightbulbs on the chamberlain machine to shut off and come back on this is to tell you that the machine accepted the code , after thats been done you can use your keypad , you can also find the owners manual to the chamberlain and follow the same instructions to programming the remote , they are identical in programing , if your keypad is not the same frequency you can also tell by looking at the frequency code on the backside of the keypad and also the chamberlain unit usually where the light bulb is will be its code
