    I meant to say I need new remotes for the NuTone GA578. How much are gorage door openers these days installed ?

  • ssugden Jan 28, 2009

    Wow you are in the right job. THought this was going to be a great site, but not with this attitude. I was tryoing to make a distinction between the remote and the opener itself. Didn;t know it made a difference. If I did, I wouldn;t be on this site would I.

    Patience dude working with people. its great you know this stuff but other people are busy like I am as a single Dad, who just lost his Brother and his Father and can;t afford to keep the home. A replacement is assumed at all times for God sake.

    Take care your going to need it.

Unit must be ancient. try sears for a universal radio control set. if unit is as old as i think, i would toss it and get a new one. you will not be able to get any parts for this unit and it does not have safety beams.

    installed they can go for $300 -625, depending what part of country you are in and what model you chose, stay with craftsman/liftmaster/chamberlain , i do not like Genie.

  • marty metzger Jan 28, 2009

    how many times you going to post this question. Nutone has not had openers in ages, so anything yu have is outdated, probably does not reverse upon hitting obstruction (illegal) and has no saftety beams. It probably has external radio controls, so like I said before, you can buy receiver and two remotes for over $100 and still have an anceinet unit. Buy something current and you will be able to buy parts should you ever need them.

  • marty metzger Jan 28, 2009

    your going to need it? Do not know what you mean. Did you mean "you're" going to. Anyhow, sorry about your losses. You did not say that money is real tight. The point is, if you pour $100 into fixing this unit, the next time you need a part (internal, not an add-on like radio control) yu will be out of luck. You did not say what part of country you live in. I charge $425 for a real nice Liftmaster, my competition charges $625, and someone in upstate NY charges $325. Demographics. If you are handy and have a few hours, they are not hard to install. You still did not tell me what radio control you have. It is probably attached to motor; may be Pulsar, Multi-Code, etc. Get me the info and I will try to help you. I was upset because after I posted an honest answer (I do NOT get any money from Fixya, even though they mislead you into thinking you will get paid after answering 30 questions for free in 30 days (I did 125 in 3 days dude). They rip me off, so please tone down yur attitude because you are getting professional advice for free. You asked, I answered. You asked again. I knew you did not lose the garage openers (motors). You obviously lost the remotes. Get me the info I ask for and I will help. Again, sorry for yur losses.

I also have a nutone garage door systems and both remotes died.

I tried some universal remote at Lowes and it didn't work.

However, If you swap out the remote and the receiver unit, you can make it work. And it was cheaper than I thought ($40)

I got the Multicode brand and it worked great for me (You'll also need the wire adapters).

How do i reprogram garage opener model 139.53776

To ensure that old codes do not work, first press and hold the SR code button (Learn) on the garage door opener's control panel. Hold the button until the LED goes out. The Learn button is a colored button that is usually on the back panel to the left of the force and up/down adjustment knobs. Sometimes the control panel is on the side of the unit.

Next get a helper to make the programming easier. One person will need to press and release the Learn button. Then within 30 seconds, the second person (or a fast moving individual) needs to type in a 4 digit code and press the enter key on the key pad. The LED near the learn button will flash when the code is received.

If you reset all of the codes, you'll need to repeat the fast press and release of the Learn button. Then press a control button on the remote for most of your other door opener remotes. (There may be a pair of remotes that came with the garage door opener that will never be forgotten.)

I hope this helps.

I've got water coming in through the bottom of my door at work. It's coming in a steady stream through a crack in the marble. Can someone please give me a pointer or two?

If you have water pipes/ heating pipes in the concrete floor then from the crack I would suggest that the floor movement has broken a pipe allowing the water to flow out the crack under the door. To test this turn the water off at the mains and if the water stops flowing after a short period of time then that will indicate the fault. Allow enough time for the water in the pipes up to taps to drain back out
