Shawna: Hello, I’m Shawna with Invitation Homes, and today we’re going to talk with you about how to reprogram a replacement garage door opener.

First, you’ll need to determine what type of garage door motor unit you have in your home. All you have to do is carefully remove the light cover from your garage door motor unit to see whether it’s supplied with a Smart Learn button or with DIP switches. A motor unit with a Smart Learn button will look like this. It’s best to follow the instructions included with your replacement remote, but in the event you don’t have the instructions, make sure the garage door is in the down position. Press and hold the program button in the remote until the LED lights up. You’ll need to press and release the Smart Learn button on the garage door motor unit, then select and press a button to program on the remote. You’ll need to press the button on the remote the specific number of times determined by the manufacturer of your garage door motor unit, ensuring the LED lights stop flashing after each press.

This information can be found on the website for the replacement remote if you’ve misplaced the instructions. The code is accepted when one of the following occurs. You hear a click in the motor unit, the garage door activates, or the light on the unit turns on. Then press the program button again in the remote. You should now test the remote. If the unit does not work, you should return to the beginning step where you pressed and held the program button in the remote.

A motor unit with DIP switches will look like this. To program your remote to this type of unit, you’ll need to match the position of the DIP switches in your new remote to those in the old remote, or to the switches in your garage door motor unit. Once these have been set, you’ll need to press and hold the program button in the remote until the LED lights up. Then select and press a button to program on the remote. Next, press the button on the remote the specific number of times determined by the manufacturer of your garage door motor unit, ensuring that the LED light stops flashing after each press. The code is accepted when the garage door activates. Then press the program button in the remote. You should now test the remote. If the unit does not work, you should return to the step where you are matching the DIP switches. If you wish to program the buttons in your vehicle to operate the opener, please refer to your vehicle’s manual for instructions.
