There are different brands of electric garage door openers on the market. Here we will discuss the reprogramming of the most popular door openers, the chamberlain garage door opener remote. In addition, we will only touch door openers manufactured since 1993. Since that date, the door openers have “rolling code ” technology, which means that each time the “transceiver” signal sent changes.
Your remote control (joystick) serves as a transmitter that sends a wave to a receiver located in the opener housing. In the event of an extended power outage, you must reprogram your transmitter remotely. How to do it? Use a stepladder to access the back of the engine of your opener. Have your remote control reprogrammed.
Remove the case protecting the bulb. You should see various instructions regarding your door opener, including programming. You will see a colored button (green, orange, purple or yellow, depending on the model and the year of manufacture). Press this button until the indicator light or the light bulb is flashing. Press the button on your remote control. The LED will blink. This tells you that communication is restored. Take the test to make sure everything works well by opening or closing your garage door using the remote control.
