Check your users manual. Normally if it is blinking it is powering up, but may be different depending on model.

Hi i have got a Kaba 1000 series but the buttons are loose and not pressing in do you know what the problem is???


It may be that you don't have the installation set up for the proper thickness of the door. But your best bet is to call the customer service for Kaba Ilco and describe the problem. The toll-free number is 800-849-8324. They are located in North Carolina, so the best time to call would be during east coast business hours. Be sure to have your model number, purchase date, etc. handy when you call.
Here is a link to their website:

Good luck--and please provide feedback if this helps!

My new wireless keypad is not being recognized. WHen I push the "Learn button on the opener it does not flash.


Press and immediately release the learn button and then walk over and key in your 4 digit PIN and press enter. If your opener is older and the keypad is the new generation it may not be compatible with your opener. You need to make sure you take the model number off the motor unit when you order new parts or accessories. The model number starts with 139.
