Why won't my LiftAway remote program with another brands door opener?


• Ensure remote is compatible with specific opener.
• If compatible, ensure full programming instructions are followed as per your Garage Door Opener’s instruction manual. These can often be found online by typing in the name and model number of your Garage Door Opener, usually located on the outer plastic shell.
• In some instances our remotes will not program in due to the memory of your garage door opener being full.
