START BY CLEARING ALL THE CODES ON BOTH DOORS. - HOLD DOWN THE SQUARE PROGRAM BUTTON ON THE POWERHEAD FOR ABOUT 30 SECONDS.
NOW PROGRAM 1 BUTTON ON A REMOTE TO DOOR #1 IF YOU HAVE 3 BUTTON REMOTES YOU CAN PROGRAM ANOTHER BUTTON TO THE OTHER DOOR.

YOU CANNOT PROGRAM MORE THAN 4 REMOTES PER OPENER

HOPE THIS IS HELPFULL

I just installed a new rolling code chamberlain garage door. it works fine, however my other garage door opener is a much older sears.


the remote can use only 1 button to open and close if programmed right
open the lid of the seers control box and press the program button then use a different button on the remote to open and close
It would appear that the seers unit is also made by chamberlain

Ken, you may have to reprogram transmitter after battery change, check your manual, if you do not have manual, Google search your make and model# manual.

Programming remote and in car garage door openers to the Craftsman AssureLink Garage Door opener - Model - 139.3043


The opener radio is not compatible with your homelink system. You need to buy a homelink repeater. Note: liftmaster and chaimberlain are the same, so if you see a reference to one of those names when searching for the repeater, dont worry, it'll work. As far as the second remote, check batteries. Then try programing again, using yellow button on the opener. Lastly, you can reset the programming and start over if all else fails. Hold down yellow button until light on button turns off. Good luck.

How do I program the garage door opener?


You post again, what the model is of the opener, the car model, it looks like this control is in a car.

Most times you need the garage door remote, then you have to hold a button and the remote button to sync the two.

What ever you are trying to program, if this is a car, you need the manual.


If you need more help, you need to post the model number of everything.


Not every car, every opener is the same at programing.

Imagine that, life simple.

Remote door opener


So, you get out your remote control to your garage door opener and, then get your owners manual to your new car. You need to follow the instructions from the manufacturer to be able to program the remote control to the car.

Ok, you have followed the instructions from the car manufacturer and you press the button for the garage door to go up.......and nothing happens. So, then you think you have missed a step on the programing. Well, what most instruction manuals leave out is the step from programing the car/truck/van to the garage door machine itself. On the back side of your garage door opener is a panel called the logic board. The logic board is the computer or brain of the machine. Most new garage door openers now are a mulit-code machine. By that, i mean it uses several signals each time you press the button on your remote control. This is for security, so your code can't be stolen by a code-grabber.

Now, comes the step of programing the vehicle to your garage door opener. Once you have followed the instructions of programing your vehicle, you now have to "teach" the car to the garage door opener. You will need some help doing this. You will have to get someone to press the button in your vehicle and hold it down, while someone else has to press the learn button on the back your your garage door opener mounted on the ceiling. The learn button on the back of your machine will be square if using a liftmaster machine. Craftsman, Liftmaster, Chamberlain are all the same. Their learn buttons are square, and usually are yellow, red/orange, or purple. If using a Genie, it has a button that says "learn button".

The person pushing the button on the machine will only have to push and release the learn button. DO NOT hold this button down. If you do, it erases all of the programing in the machine, and you have to re-program all the remote controls that you have. You will have to read my other hub to find out how to do that. You will probably say a few words you shouldn't either. :-) Programing the vehicle to the machine only takes a second, and when the machine accepts the code, the light bulb on the machine should flash for a brief moment, and you should hear audible click. Yep, it's that easy! I dont know why the auto makers leave that step out. Anyway, i hope this helps, and if you have any questions.. leave them in my comments and i will try to walk you through it. See the photo above and you will see the typical logic board...the square red/orange learn button is easy to see. Just remember to press and release

I have 2 liftmaster 3245. The hand held remotes were working fine then stopped. I replaced the batteries and turned of all electrical/RIF close by. Still not working. Both cars operate the doors with no...


You need to reprogram the remotes by briefly pushing the learn button on the garage door opener until it flashes once, then release the button on the garage door opener.

Now press the remote button once until you hear the garage door opener click, now press the remote button once again and the remote should be programmed to work for that garage door opener.

DO NOT press and hold the garage door opener learn button for more than 10 seconds or you'll erase all programs and have to relearn all the remotes, including your car ones.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards.

How can I program a craftsman remote for my door


THE OTHER BUTTONS ARE FOR ADDITIONAL DOORS.

CHECK THE FREQ. (FREQUENCY) IF YOUR NEW REMOTE IS NOT THE SAME FREQ. IT WILL NOT WORK - YOU WILL NEED TO GET ONE THAT HAS THE SAME FREQ.. - THEY ARE AVAILABLE FROM YOU LOCAL GARAGE DOOR DEALER.

HOPE THIS HELPS

NOTE: THE FREQ. IS ON THE BACK OF THE REMOTE AND NEAR THE PROGRAM BUTTON ON THE POWERHEAD - THEY CHANGED FREQ A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.

Setting garage door opener


Most openers are programmed the same. You normally program the house garage opener to accept the new remote. Your garage opener will have a button to press to add in a new remote. Normally you press this and then press the remote in the car and hold until your lights on your opener flash or the garage door closes. (check your manual on your garage door opener)
