YOU MOST LIKELY HAVE THE WRONG REMOTE.

THEY HAVE CHANGED THE FREQUENCY OF THE OPENERS.

BE SURE TO CHECK THAT THE REMOTE YOU PURCHESD WILL WORK WITH YOUR OPENER.

IF THE LED NEXT TO THE PROGRAM BUTTON FLICKERS WHEN YOU PRESS THE REMOTE - IT IS SENDING A SIGNAL.

HOPE THIS HELPS

About a remote for a garage door opener, how to program it.Bought a new remote and programmed it and now the old one don't work. How do you reprogram the old one?


The same way you programed the second one.
DO NOT hold the learn button down, just press it once and release it. Then press the button on the garage door remote and it will program to the garage door opener. Do the same for anything else you want to program to the garage door opener. When you hold the learn button down it erases all of the learned codes and you have to start over.

Where is the "learn" button on the garage door opener? We are trying to install a new remote opener to this 1145lm opener.


It's on the back of the motor. Press the learn then the remote button. You should hear it click and the light bulb should flash.

I have a craftsman garage door opener, of which I tried to program a new remote. but it did not program. in the event I accidently errased my keypad password. How can I reprogram the keypad, i cannot...


Hello there,
It actually depends on what you are trying to program. And these instructions apply only to openers that do not have dip switches on them.
Remotes: push don't hold the colored learn code button all models have different colors. After pushing the button hold the remote behind your back and push it three times. On the third time the door should run.
Keyless Entry: Program the code you want into the keyless. Push the colored learn code button and then enter the code and push enter three times slowly. on the third time the door should run.
Home-Link. Hold the two outer buttons until the blinking pattern changes. Then hold the button you wish to program and point and click your remote at it. Push the colored learn code button and push the homelink button three times.
There are two models of the Wireless Keyless Entry System, the 740CB and the 940CB. The 940CB is for use only with Security+® garage door openers having an orange/red smart/learn button. The 740CB will work with all openers manufactured since 1990 that have a yellow, white, gray, or green smart/learn button. It will not work with Security+® openers.
To program the keyless entry, first locate the smart/learn button. On our chain drive models, this button is on the end farthest from the door. On our belt and screw drive models, it is on the right side as you face the door from the opener. You simply press and release the smart/learn button. You now have 30 seconds to enter your four digit PIN number into the keypad and hold the enter button for five seconds. Wait one minute and test the keyless entry by entering your four-digit PIN number and pressing enter.
With some Security+® models, you can also program your Model 940CB Wireless Keyless Entry without climbing a ladder, right from your Multi-Function Control Panel. Simply enter your pre-selected code and press and hold the enter button on your Keyless Entry. Then press and hold the light button and the pushbutton on your Multi-Function Control Panel. The garage door opener lights will flash to confirm that the Keyless Entry has been successfully programmed.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. All the best my dear friend. Elect_Comp

Try this method for programming. Press and hold the button down on the remote while you press and immediately release the learn button. Do this for each remote.

Have you replaced the battery in the keypad? Try this:

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

Post back with your results.

If the learn button is 'amber' the model 956 remote should work with it. Try this method for programming just in case your aren't.

Hold the button down on the remote while your press and immediately release the learn button. Main light should flash.

There is always the possibility that the receiver has quit working.

When did your remote and keypad quit working? Was it when you programmed the Homelink? It sure sounds like you have a bad logic board.

Remote missing on old dominator garage door opener


This is the most complicated way I know of coding a remote and I am a tech. who does this all the time.
Turn power off. Wait 3 sec's & turn back on. Quickly press program button on back of box twice. Lights will flash, bottom light will stay on. Press program button twice, & No. 3 light will start flashing. Press and hold your remote button until light stops flashing. Code will be accepted.
