How can I reset a Craftsman Garage Door Opener?

Resetting a Craftsman Garage Door Opener is a straightforward process that can be accomplished by following a series of simple steps. Here’s a concise guide to help you reset your Craftsman Garage Door Opener:

This keyless garage door opener entry pad works with Genie transmitters using 390 MHz frequency. It is NOT compatible with Genie Intellicode transmitters (if your keypad has Intellicode printed on the duvet, attend a subsequent set of programming instructions below).

Step 1: Identify the Reset Button

Locate the reset button on your Craftsman Garage Door Opener. The reset button is typically a small, red or black button located on the opener motor or control panel. It may be labeled “Learn” or “Program.”

Step 2: Clear Existing Codes

Press and hold the reset button until the indicator light on the opener turns off. This action clears any existing codes stored in the opener’s memory.

Step 3: Choose a New Code

Decide on a new code that you want to use to operate your garage door. This code is what you’ll input on your remote control or keypad to open and close the door.

Step 4: Program the Remote Control

If you’re resetting the garage door opener to sync with a new remote control, follow these steps:

  • Press the reset button on the opener.
  • Within 30 seconds, press the button on the remote control that you want to use with the opener.
  • Wait for the opener’s light to blink or for an audible click, indicating that the remote control has been successfully programmed.

Step 5: Test the Garage Door Opener

After programming the new code or remote control, test the garage door opener to ensure it’s working correctly. Use the remote control or keypad to open and close the door.

Additional Tips:

  • If you’re resetting the keypad code, follow the manufacturer’s instructions for entering the new code on the keypad.
  • Ensure that the opener’s sensors are properly aligned and free from obstructions to prevent any operational issues.
  • Refer to your Craftsman Garage Door Opener’s user manual for model-specific instructions or troubleshooting guidance.
