  • Tools you need to do the job
  • Steps to program the remote with the garage door opener

Background

Recently my GeniePro Screwdrive garage door remote control started failing.  I know it wasn’t the battery since I have replaced it and it still fails to work.

Lately my wife has been opening the garage door for me to that point that when I leave work, she gives me 30 minutes to get home and she starts checking once the 30 minutes is up.  Then as I arrive, the garage door miraculously opens, thanks to my patient and thoughtful wife.

Well, I love that the door opens without me using a remote, but I would not impose such a task on anyone.  So I ordered a universal garage door opener–specifically the Clicker Universal Garage Door Remote (which I ordered through Amazon.com for about $25).  It came in on time as advertised by Amazon.

Tools Needed

To get the job done, I needed the following tools:

  • Scissors — you need this to open the typical molded clear plastic used in the remote’s packaging
  • Phillips screw driver — you need this to open the light cover of the garage door opener; this will expose the smart/learn button of the garage door opener
  • 6 foot ladder — in order to comfortably reach the garage door opener, I used a 6-ft ladder

The Steps

Basically, you need to do the following tasks in order to get this job done:

  • Review the Clicker remote setup instructions
  • Open the garage door opener light cover
  • Push the garage door opener learn button
  • Push the buttons on the remote
  • Test the remote
  • Done

Getting it Done!

I reviewed the setup instructions multiple times.  One key thing you need to remember is that you need to determine which set of instructions you need to follow–Smart/Learn Button or DIP switch instructions.

For my case, I followed the Smart/Learn Button set of instructions.

Here’s a list of the steps I took:

  1. Open the light cover of the GeniePro Screwdrive garage door opener.  You’ll need the 6-foot ladder and the phillips screw driver for this.  This will expose the garage door opener smart/learn button.
  2. Slide down to open the Clicker front cover; it will expose the program button.
  3. Press and hold the program button until the remote LED turns ON.
  4. Press and release the garage door smart/learn button; the garage door opener LED will start flashing
  5. Press the remote button 1 six (6) times; on the sixth press, the garage door opener LED will stop flashing, but will remain lit.
  6. Press and release the Clicker program button.  The garage door opener LED will turn off.
  7. The remote is now programmed for the Genie garage door opener.  Press the #1 Clicker remote button to test if the garage door opens and closes.  If it works, you can re-install the garage door opener light cover, and you’re done; otherwise, you may have to repeat the above steps.

Conclusion

I needed a new garage door opener remote.  I bought the Clicker Universal Garage Door Remote (model # KLIK1U) for about $25 and it worked perfectly with my GeniePro Screwdrive garage door opener (model #CM7600IC/A).
