How To Program Craftsman Garage Door Opener

Many people find they need to program the garage door opener on a HomeLink system that came with their car. Maybe you bought the car used and don't have a manual, or you do have a manual but find it hard to follow. In either case, it really is not difficult to program the garage door opener. It should require no more than 5-10 minutes, as long as you follow each step carefully. Having a helper will make the process go even quicker. If you are having trouble operating your garage door opener, read Troubleshooting the Most Common Garage Door Opener Problems for advice on diagnosing the problem. The receiver, handheld transmitter, and in-car transmitter must all be in good operating condition to ensure success when you program the garage door opener.The HomeLink system is available on a wide range of cars, and it can also be purchased as an aftermarket product. It is compatible with nearly all garage door opening systems, including Liftmaster, Chamberlain, Craftsman, Genie, Overhead Door, Allstar and Wayne Dalton. The primary requirement is that the garage door opener operates on a frequency of 288-433 MHz. You should be able to find the frequency of your unit on the back of the handheld transmitter.Programming Your Garage Door OpenerTo program the garage door opener, it will be necessary to raise and lower the door. So, to keep the process safe, make sure that children and pets stay away from the garage. Once you are ready to begin, just follow these steps:Always begin with a new battery in the handheld transmitter. If you're not sure how old the battery is, go ahead and replace it.Turn the key to the accessory (“ACC”) position before you begin programming the garage door opener.For a first-time programming (or if you think the garage door opener has been previously programmed), press the two outer buttons on the transmitter for about 20 seconds, until the light starts flashing. On the transmitter, hold the button to be programmed down until it begins flashing slowly (20-30 seconds). Keep holding the button down for the next step.Grab the handheld transmitter in your other hand and point it toward the flashing light from about 2 inches away. Press the operating button on the handheld unit. Once the light starts flashing faster, the frequency has been entered into the HomeLink transmitter. Release both buttons.This step is easiest with a helper. You will need a ladder and, quite possibly, a flashlight. On the garage door opener receiver (i.e., the motor, located inside the garage), press the training button (also called a “smart” or “learn” button). The button may not be labeled, but it will have a small light next to it that flashes when the button is pressed. (Note, if the indicator light stays on continuously, the programming is complete and the garage door opener should function.)If the indicator light flashes (or if it flashes briefly before becoming continuously lit), you have 30 seconds to perform the following step (which is why this goes quicker with a helper).In the car, with the key still turned to ACC, press the button you programmed earlier on the in-car transmitter for three seconds. Remove your finger from the button, then press again for another three seconds. If the garage door hasn't moved yet, press the button for another three seconds. Once the door moves, the garage door opener has been programmed. If your garage door opener does not seem to respond to the programming efforts, unplug the receiver for a minute, then try again. Make sure your new battery in the handheld transmitter is installed correctly. If you still can't properly program the garage door opener, call the HomeLink customer service department (1-800-355-3515).If problems persist, you may need to buy a new garage door opener. See Reasons to Replace Your Garage Door Opener for advice on whether or not a new unit is advised.

How To Program Craftsman Garage Door Opener

Disable Lock Feature Hi, this is Wayne from Sears PartsDirect. Today we’re going to talk about what to do when the remote for your garage door opener doesn’t work. You press the remote, and the door doesn’t move. What’s next? If the garage door opener lights blink twice when you press the remote, check the wall control to see if you have the Lock feature enabled. The Lock button feature disables all remotes. If the green light blinks on the wall control, the lockout feature is on. Press and hold the Lock button for 2 seconds to disable the feature. Check for RF Interference If you press the remote and nothing happens, RF interference could be preventing the garage door opener from receiving the remote signal. To check for RF interference, hold the remote a few feet away from the motor unit and press the button. If the remote works in the immediate vicinity of the motor unit, then RF interference is likely preventing the remote from working at normal distances. Motion detectors on security lights or home alarm systems can cause RF interference. Electronic game consoles can also interfere with RF signals. Find and eliminate the cause of RF interference to improve your remote’s signal range. If you’re unable to find the source of RF interference, you can install an antenna on the side of your house to improve the reception. You can also schedule a Sears service technician to visit your home and find the source of RF interference. Replace Bad Remote Battery If the remote doesn’t work when you hold it next to the motor unit, then a few different things could be happening. Your remote battery could be dead, your remote could have lost its programming link to the garage door opener or you could have a defective remote control. A defective logic board can also prevent the remote control from activating the garage door opener. First, check the batteries. If your remote has an LED light like this one, see if it lights up when you press the button. If not, then the remote battery could be dead. You can buy replacement batteries at searspartsdirect.com. Some remotes don’t have an LED light to check for signs of life. Try a new battery and see if the remote starts working. Reprogram Remote, Reset Logic Board If that doesn’t work and you know the battery is good, then the remote might have lost its programming link to the garage door opener. Reprogram the remote to activate the garage door opener. Here’s a link to a video that shows you how. If you can’t reprogram the remote, erase all the codes by holding down the Learn button on the motor unit for about 6 seconds or until the Learn light turns off. Reprogram the remote and see if it works now. If so, remember to reprogram any other remotes you use for this opener. If you still can’t program the remote after erasing all codes, reset the logic board in the motor unit by unplugging the garage door opener for one minute. Restore power and reprogram the remotes. If you still have a remote that just won’t work, try programming a different remote if you have more than one. If your other remote works, then you’ll likely need to replace the nonfunctional one. Here’s a link to a popular model. Replace the Logic Board If you can’t program any remotes after erasing all codes and resetting the logic board, then you may have a defective logic board in the garage door opener. Here’s a video that shows you how to replace the logic board. I hope that this video helped you out. You can find links to the items we talked about in the video description.
