The garage door motor started to smoke. I have never had a problem with it until this morning. Is there a part that needs to be fixed? I am hoping to not have to replace the whole thing. <

If the motor started to smoke it is caused by overheating of the winding. This results from too much electricity going thru them when the drive is mechanically binding and not allowing the motor to spin properly. Locate the bind and motor if not permanently damaged will run properly.

Hi, my name is Randy and I can help you with that. Try this:
  1. Put in you permanent Pin
  2. Hold down the * until the unit blinks 3 times then release the button
  3. Put in new 4 digit "Temporary" Pin
  4. Press "Enter" then the light will blink 4 times
  • If you want to set the number of hours the temporary Pin will work you press the number of hours (up to 255 hours) then press *
  • If you want to set you temporary Pin my how many time it can be entered then put in the number (255 Times the code can be entered) and press #.
You should try your temperary Pin to comfirm that it is set. Remember this will count as one of the uses if you chose to go that route.

Tempory password

Find the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit just to the left of all those white wires. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in any 4 digit PIN you like and press enter.

Forgotten password

You don't need the old password to change to a new one. Locate the smart/learn button on the back of your motor unit. Press and immediately release this and then walk over and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

Remotes don't work

I recently had Verizon FIOS equipment installed in my garage (for phone, internet and TV), which is plugged into a 110 volt electrical outlet. Thinking this equipment might be causing some RF interference, I unplugged the FIOS equipment, and both garage door openers immediately worked perfectly again!
After reconnecting the FIOS equipment, I then plugged the garage door opener into a different electrical outlet approximately 15 ft. away via an extension cord, and the openers continue to work fine. Fingers crossed, I hope the issue is permanently resolved.
