How Do I Program My Genie Garage Door Opener?

Our friendly team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is excited to give you all the knowledge you need to set up your Genie garage door opener. Deciding to have a Genie shouldn’t be a challenging task. We hope that the information we provide for you will help make this an easy project.

At some point, you might run into an issue with your remote and no longer have your owner’s manual on hand. Sometimes the device just needs to be reprogrammed after an emergency situation or a power outage. When this happens, we want you to be confident in your ability to fix it.

Starting To Program Your Remote

Your Genie will have a clearly marked button that says “Learn Code” on it. You will need to remove the lens cover that is on the motor around the light bulb area. When you press the button, you will see a rapidly blinking light that will stop after you press the button that is in need of reprogramming.

It’s important to ensure you put the remote is no further than two feet away during these steps. This allows for the remote coding to pair with the specific frequency. When your remote is further away it prevents it from programming properly and can make the process much longer.

Safety Always Comes First

During the entirety of the programming process, it is important that others, especially children, be kept away. You never know when a door can malfunction and slam closed. If you have multiple doors that need to be reprogrammed then you will still follow the same steps we have listed above.

Safety should always come first when you are dealing with garage doors. They are heavy, powerful equipment that, most of the time, are connected to some sort of power control board and should be dealt with carefully. Even though chances are low of an emergency situation happening, it is better to be safe than sorry.


The Genie opener is able to work on all different garage door models from many companies. If you aren’t sure that your make and model of garage door is able to be programmed with the Genie, then give us a call and we can help you out. If for some reason, the Genie doesn’t work with your door, we can help find a solution for you.

We Are Here For You

There might come a time when you just need a little advice but aren’t sure where to turn. You can always find things online, but why not turn to the professional? This is what we do for a living and we love helping others.

If you run into any issues while trying to program your Genie garage door opener, give our friendly staff a call. Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is always going to be there for you, even if you just have questions. We can’t wait to help you with every step of your garage door journey.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
