The information below will be helpful for you to avoid the problems while reprogramming the genie garage door opener DIY.

The Process:

The Genie model has a button that clearly says “Learn Code on it”. For that, you have to remove a lens cover located on the motor in the light bulb area. Once you press the button, an LED light beside the button will start blinking for 30 seconds rapidly.

The blinking will stop after the remote control button is pressed that is required to be programmed. While performing this, you must keep the remote at least two feet away from the garage door opener.

WHY? The minimum range of remote control from opener will prevent the opener from being programmed correctly. That’s why a certain distance is necessary to complete the process without any hesitation.

Safety Concerns:

During the process, it is vitally important that other persons should be kept away at least 20 feet from the area especially the children. If something goes wrong like door malfunction during the process, there may be a possibility of severe damage and life-threatening injury or even death.
