No each manufacturer uses a different code that is built into the keypad.

If the chain does not move but the motor runs then you have stripped the internal gears. I would replace here. These chain glide units are not very strong. There might be a chance the chain is telescoping down the rail but the trolley is not hooked up. Pull the red cord back toward the motor to engage. Thanks BB

It will be on the outer surface of the motor head, or under the light cover. It will be the only one you can press. Some older units have dip switches which look like a row of toggle switches. If so there will be no learn button. Thanks BB

Most of the time, keypads and remotes are not compatible with other manufacturers. You would be better off getting a universal keypad, which should work. Double check the older opener to make sure it is on the list of compatible devices.
Also, make sure you check the balance of your garage door periodically to make sure your springs are counter-balancing the garage door properly. If not, the lifespan of the garage door opener will be substantially shortened. Click here for a how-to video.
