How do I clear out the Genie Universal 2-Button Remote and return it to factory settings?


To clear any existing programming from the remote, press and hold down BOTH buttons at the same time – continue holding down both buttons until the GREEN LED blinks and goes out (@10 seconds). This clears any programmed openers from the remote and returns the remote to factory settings.




When working with Chamberlain®/LiftMaster®/Craftsman® Yellow Learn Button units, I am having trouble programming the universal remote to the operator head/receiver.


Be sure to use the instruction set specifically for a Chamberlain, LiftMaster, or Craftsman operator with the yellow learn button.

  1. On remote, press and hold down both buttons at the same time – as soon as the RED LED begins flashing, immediately release both buttons (@5sec).
  2. On remote, press the button of your choice four times.
  3. When presses are complete, simply WAIT until the GREEN LED blinks and then goes out.
  4. On remote, press and hold down the button you just chose until the GREEN LED blinks and goes out again – then release (@5 seconds).
  5. On opener, press LEARN/PROGRAM button for 2-3 seconds and then release.
  6. Press the remote button you chose ONE time. Opener will click.
  7. On the opener, press the LEARN/PROGRAM button again for 2-3 seconds then release.
  8. Press the remote button you chose ONE time again. Opener will click again.
  9. Press the remote button again and the opener will activate.
  10. Test the button - programming is complete.
TIP: Allow the LED light on the universal transmitter to stop flashing before your next button press.




What is the trick when working with Marantec® products?


Use this remote with Marantec products only one when there are no other remotes or keypads (no other RF products) being used with the opener. There can only be a single ‘fixed rolling code’ programmed to a Marantec device. Each remote or keypad uses that same code. If you introduce the Genie universal remote to an opener that already has remotes and keypads programmed to it, it will erase the code inside those remotes and keypads and they will no longer operate (only your Genie universal remote will work). Only use the Genie universal 2-button remote when there are no other remotes or keypads programmed to the Marantec opener.
