Accessing the Garage Door Motor
Get one from a hardware shop or a home decor store if you don’t have a ladder. Or, borrow one from a pal.
Position a stepladder to access the rear of the garage door opener motor. Notice a row of small, numbered toggle switches on the back of the motor.
Open the panel on the left side of the motor unit.
The left-hand light compartment doubles as a screen covering the controls of the unit while you are standing in front of the garage door and staring at the motor unit. On this plate, pull tightly down until it comes away from the motor unit. Without collapsing, the hinges at the bottom of the panel would cause it to swivel down.
The positioning of the panel can vary from one unit type to the next. Often, the panel may be placed at the back or side of the motor box of the garage door.
Locate the “Learn” button at the front of the control panel.
Depending on the make and model of your garage door opener, the button may be yellow and round or purple and square.
- Press and hold the LEARN button on the garage door opener until the LEARN LED goes out (approximately 6 to 8 seconds).
- Immediately press and hold the LEARN button again until the LEARN LED goes out.
- Try poking it with the tip of a pen in case your fingers are too large.
- Immediately press and hold the LEARN button a third time until the LEARN LED goes out. You should hear 3 quick beeps. All codes, myQ accessories, and built-in gateway settings are now erased and delinked.
- Safely step down from the ladder. Then, fetch a remote control opener for your garage door. To check to make sure that the garage door is not open, press the button. If you have de-linked some intelligent devices, double check them and make sure they do not unlock the garage door anymore.
