Cannot program new garage code

I bought a new house and inherited the previous garage code. I found the manual, and reset the 5 digit code, which worked wonderfully. I then went to next section to program a new code, and everything seemed to be working. But when I went to put the code in, it will not work. The instructions i used were to :Open cover halfway, press and hold PROG & 8, open the cover, the LED blinks once... release PROG and 8 and close cover. --- That worked because old code does not work. Then to make a new: Open cover fully, LED lights, enter 3-5-7, press PROG, LED flashes, enter desired code, press PROG, LED flashes 2x per second, and close cover. I do that, and when i go to put the new code in, nothing works.

You are missing a step. It sounds like you have a genie intellicode black wireless keyless entry unit. The final step is to program to the opener. When you open halfway and press the prog and 8 keys, youve unlearned the unit from the opener. Lets start over. Complete the previous steps and then finally, press the code or learn button on the opener. There is a red LED light next to it which will flash after pressing it. Within 30 seconds, type your new code and press the up/down or enter button on the keypad. Then press the up/down or enter button a second time. Programming is complete!

It sure sounds like the logic board has gone bad. You are doing everything right but the logic board is not learning the code.

I've never seen the first set of steps you mention. You always need to press the "learn" button first so the opener will be in the mode to capture the new code. As far as I know it is not necessary to hold the Enter button on the keypad (at least I never have). While the "learn" LED is lit on the opener, just key in the new code and press Enter.

Maybe you should try clearing the receiver first by pressing the "learn" button and holding it until the LED either goes out or starts flashing (depends on model). Then try reprogramming. Maybe the little computer is confused.

Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

The frequency of the garage door opener is the same as the one down the street. Is there a way to change frequency on the Lift-Master Professtional Line Garage Door opener?


This appears to be your problem.Your door sometimes is opening unexpectedly and inadvertently when a seen or unseen neighbor uses his or herremote door opener; or a neighbor wonders why his/her own door always seems to open shortly after you drive by; and you wonder if her and your remotes should not be transmitting each at its own unique frequency level. Or in the worst case, someone, possibly a prankster, possibly someone more nefarious, is driving through neighborhoods punching a remote to see if any garages respond (and if any indoor occupants respond).

Its transmission radio frequency is not what sets one garage door remote apart from any other. Instead, each door remote controller transmits in rf adigital codeinto the air near your house, and any door opener power head set to the same code recognizes the code and is commanded to energize its power head motor to raise or lower the attached door in reverse of its last most previous transport direction. The chance, probabilistically speaking, of any two near-neighboring houses' garage doors (or even a random, travelling remote) being set at the exact same code among the large number of available alternative codes is quite remote, but it can sometimes happen.

The solution is for the house owner--that is you-to change the reception code in your door opener power head unit by repositioning small selector contact switches in a code pad situated on the power head, typically behind a plate or cover of some kind--or you might have to remove the power head cover. Once found, it is fairly easy to do by setting the numbered or lettered switches to form a multi-digit code, much like a digital padlock combination except in binary or some base other than decimal. Next, record the new code, and change the code by the same means and method on all associated remote control instruments. It is not a bad idea to change garage door remote access code from time to time simply as a matter of routine garage door and door opener maintenance. Check for code switch location and setting procedure for you power head in user manual or on line. That should be the end of the problem and also discourage anyone casing your neighborhood for potential unlawful entry vulnerability.

Hello we just bought a new house and the Masterlock 5404D was on our Garage door . Was wondering how to get it open so we can reset it and use it.


You can't get it open without either knowing the code, or destroying it (as in cutting the shackle, or some such destruction). There are truly 10,000 codes (combinations) available. If you have the time, you can systematically run through them until you hit on the one that works.

Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

How to reset garage door opener pad without old acess number


A Stanley garage door keypad is wall-mounted, battery-operated device that allows you to open your home's garage door electronically without having to manually lift the door or use a pull chain. The keypad uses a four-digit access code that you program after the keypad is initially installed. You can change the code, disable the keypad manually by entering a invalid code and reset the keypad if the device is not working properly. After you reset your Stanley garage door keypad, the device is ready to accept a new access code.
