Occasionally, you will have to reset your garage door opener remote or sync your opener to a new remote. To do this you will want to know what the Learn Button on your garage door opener is and how to find it.
The learn button is located on your garage door opener and is used to program new and old remotes, wall mounts and keypads. It is also used to clear the memory of the opener. Clearing it will wipe out all previously programmed devices.
Depending on the make and model opener you have the button could be either Green, Orange, Purple or Yellow. (Older receivers used trinary switches to match the remote's setting).
The button is on your opener right above the antenna wire. That wire hangs above the motor head. Some models have the button located on the back of the unit. Others are located on the side. If you have a light on the back of your opener, the button will be underneath the light cover.
To access a button that is located under the light cover, you will need to unhook the cover. Most of the time the cover will hang from the opener on a hinge while it is open. On some units the cover may come all the way off.
To open the light cover, you will need to locate the two buttons on either side of the cover. Press the buttons in to release the cover.
Once you find the button on your opener you can use it to program new devices. If you get a new remote or install a wireless keypad you will need to program the two together.
Your opener should have a LED indicator light to communicate to you while you are programming the new devices. When you clear the memory on the opener, the LED will light up and stay that way for 30 seconds. Once it goes off, you know the unit is cleared out. Then you will need to push the learn button again to program it to the new devices.
