When you buy one of this company’s cutting-edge openers, you get an easy-to-use and trustworthy remote control. The remote controllers that come with these sorts of openers come with step-by-step instructions for configuring them.

When you are programming a new garage door opener accessory, you are told to look for the learn button on the machine. But what exactly is a learn button, and where can you find one quickly?

The learn button on your garage door has two primary functions: pairing new accessories with the door opener or clearing the memory, including all previous connections with accessories or remotes.

The Learn Button on Your Garage Door Opener

The display of the garage door button and its location on the machine is decided by the Brand and Type Of Opener you have already installed. The colored learn button on a Chamberlain or LiftMaster garage door opener is usually found on the back of the unit.

To find the learn button on your LiftMaster remote, follow these steps:

  • To begin, locate the antenna dangling from the machine’s bottom.
  • Remove any light covers from the control panel to make it easier to see the dashboard.
  • On the back panel, typically under the light lens, look for a brightly colored — red, green, purple, or yellow — square or round button.

Using the Learn Button to Program Your Garage Door Opener

Once you have found the learn button on your LiftMaster garage door opener, which is usually on the rear panel, you should use it to configure garage door remotes or other accessories quickly and efficiently. The color of your garage door opener’s learn button will significantly impact how you program your device.

Garage Door Openers with the “Learn” Button in Purple, Red/Orange, or Green

The button on your garage door opener might be one of the following:

  • Red/Orange
  • Green
  • Purple
  • Yellow

Is there a Learn button on all garage door openers? Craftsman, Liftmaster, and Chamberlain are all the same when it comes to programming a vehicle to a garage door opener. Their learn buttons are often square and Yellow, Red/Orange, or Purple in color. The learn button should be pressed just once, and it should be pressed hard and quickly.

Press and Hold the button you want to program on the remote control for three seconds after pushing the “Learn” button for 30 seconds, then release. To signify that programming was successful, the LED indicator light will turn off, and the garage door operator lights will flicker.

If you need to clear your garage door opener’s memory, press and hold the learn button on your opener. After six seconds, the light above the button will turn on and then turn off. Your garage door opener will be cleansed of prior keyless entry and remote-control connections after the light are turned off.

Circular Yellow Colored Buttons

If your machine has a circular yellow learn button, the methods to set the controls and clean the machine’s memory are slightly different. Push and release the learn button, and the LED light above or near the button will turn on and stay constant for up to two minutes, allowing you to program remotes and accessories.

How Can You Clear the Device Memory?

There are two methods to clearing the memory of your garage door opener:

  • The first time you hit the learn button, the remote control and keyless entry connections will be cleared. To do so, hold down the learn button for a few seconds. The light will illuminate for six seconds before turning off.
  • Within three seconds of the first light going off, press and hold the learn button to erase the memory of MyQ accessory connectivity and door controls. Hold the button down for six seconds before releasing it and waiting for the light to turn off.

If both methods do not work, you can always reprogram the device.

How do I Connect My Liftmaster to My Automobile?

After you press and release the learn button on your garage door opener, you should press and hold the HomeLink button on your car for 30 seconds. By pressing and holding the HomeLink button, the automobile will be connected to the machine’s signal. The light on your LiftMaster machine would blink once if the pairing were successful.
