  1. Remove the old code from unit's memory

    Use a ladder to reach the garage door motor unit attached to the ceiling. Locate the Learn button, which is typically blue or red. Remove the old code from its memory by holding down the Learn button until the light beside it goes out.

  2. Enter your new code

    Press the Learn button again to turn the light back on. Go to the keypad on the garage wall, and enter your new code; you have about 30 seconds to do so. The motor unit's light should blink to indicate the new code has been saved.

  3. Sync the garage door remote with the new code

    Press the Learn button on the motor unit again. Hold up the remote toward the back of the unit, and press the remote button. The motor unit's light should blink to indicate that the new code has been programmed into the remote.
