How to Reset Clicker Garage Door Keypad Without a Code?

Whether you’ve forgotten the code, or never knew it in the first place, you can reset it by following a few simple steps. In short, you need to locate the LEARN button to wipe the memory and proceed with reprogramming a new four-digit PIN (Personal Identification Number). Follow these steps to successfully reset your Clicker garage door keypad without a code.

Step One: Clear Obstructions

Before you proceed any further, make sure that your garage door area is clear of any obstructions. Bring the kids and pets inside to avoid any potential dangers that could arise from testing the opening and closing of the garage door. Once the area is free of obstacles, continue on to locating the LEARN button.

Step Two: Locate the LEARN Button

If you need to reprogram your Clicker keypad but do not know the code, you must locate the LEARN button. It can be found on either the door control or on the garage door opener. The LEARN button on your garage door opener is located just above the antenna wire that hangs from the motorhead. Or, it may be found under a light cover.

The button will either be red/orange, purple, green, or yellow, depending on your particular opener. You will need to use a ladder to gain access to the LEARN button, as the motor is generally placed on the ceiling of your garage.

Step Three: Clear the Opener Memory

The LEARN button on your garage door opener has essentially two functions:

  • Program accessories to the opener.
  • Clear the memory of the opener – this will erase all of the accessories that are currently programmed to the opener.

If your garage door opener is Wi-Fi enabled it will have a third function that activates Wi-Fi learn mode. However, to reset your Clicker garage door keypad we are only concerned with clearing the memory.

When you’ve located the LEARN button on your opener, press and hold it down. This will cause the LED to turn on, and after six seconds the light will turn off. Once it’s off, this indicates that you have successfully cleared out the keypad and any handheld remotes. The system will now have no passcode and must be reprogrammed.

Step Four: Program Clicker Garage Door Keypad

With the memory of your opener successfully wiped, all that’s left is to reprogram the Clicker keypad. At this point, you are essentially programming the device as if it was brand new. Follow these steps to program your Clicker garage door keypad:

  1. Press down on the LEARN button on your garage door opener once more.
  2. Release the button and this should trigger the LED light.
  3. With the LED light lit, you will have 30 seconds to complete the following step.
  4. On your keypad, insert the four-digit PIN of your choice.
  5. Then, press and hold down on the ENTER button until the light blinks on the garage door opener.
  6. Your Clicker garage door keypad has now been successfully reset and your garage can be accessed by your personal four-digit code.

To ensure the safety and security of your home, be sure that the code you enter is one that cannot be easily guessed by potential thieves.

Why won’t my garage door keypad work?

There are a number of reasons why your garage door keypad may not be working. First, you should check if the batteries have died.

Why is my garage door auto-reversing?

If your garage door auto reverses when you’re trying to close it, this is likely caused by something blocking the photo-eye. These eyes exist at ground level on either side of the door. If something is blocking them, they’re covered in grime or knocked out of place, your garage door will not close. Inspect your photo eyes, clean and realign them as needed.
