Locking mechanisms have not been left behind by modern technological breakthroughs. Digital locking mechanisms are a product of the digital age and may be both a benefit and a burden. These devices make sure you can swiftly and safely enter and exit your garage.
However, if you lose the code, you will be unable to enter for a while until you find out a new way. You need to be prepared for situations like these where there is nobody home to open the door from the inside.
Fortunately, changing your garage door code only takes a few simple steps and doesn’t require the old code or expert assistance.
How To Change Or Reset The Garage Door Code?
This simple method for changing your code outlined below is only applicable if your door does not have a door blocker behind it. The easy procedure is as follows:
1. Gain Access to the Door’s Motor
Get a ladder by going through the main door. Place the ladder beneath the motor and ascend to the top. Whether your door is rolling or sectional, you will see two motors on either side. Check that both motors are accessible.
2. Restart the Motor
Locate the reset button in the control panel. Press and hold it for a few seconds until the light next to it turns off. This indicates that the motor reset was successful and that the previous code was removed from its memory.
To avoid a gap in your garage door, carefully reset the code.
3. Enter the New Code
Following a successful reset, input a new code into your garage door system. Access the keypad and push and hold the reset button until the light next to it returns to life.
Then, enter your selected code and see the light blink.
Press and hold the motor button again until the blinking light stops. Then, keep holding until the light goes out. After that, reprogram your remotes.
4. Reprogram Your Remote Controls
Hold down the button on your remote until the motor’s light starts flashing again. That indicates that the remote reprogramming was successful.
