With winter coming up, many people are taking advantage of sales to buy themselves a new garage door opener. If you are one of these people, then you’ll need to know how to program your new LiftMaster opener remote control. This guide will show you how to do it in just a few simple steps. 

It is important to know how to program your LiftMaster opener remote control because it allows you to control the operation of your garage door from a distance. This can be convenient for situations where you need to open or close the garage door without having to physically be near the opener itself.

Programming your LiftMaster opener remote control also allows you to add or remove remote controls as needed. For example, if you lose a remote control or want to give one to a family member or friend, you can program a new remote control to work with your opener. Similarly, if you no longer want a specific remote control to work with your opener, you can remove it from the programming list.


LiftMaster is one of the most trusted brands in the garage door opener Oklahoma City OK business. When you buy one of this company’s modern openers, the remote control is easy to use and reliable. CCM OVERHEAD DOORS in Oklahoma City OK is proud to sell these openers, and we recommend them wholeheartedly. Here are step-by-step instructions for programming the remotes that come with these opener brands.

Programming a LiftMaster remote control will depend on the specific model you have. Here are some general steps you can follow to program your LiftMaster remote control:

  • Locate the programming buttons on your LiftMaster opener. These buttons are usually located near the antenna and are labeled “Learn,” “Smart,” or “Program.”
  • Press and hold the programming button on your LiftMaster opener until the indicator light begins to flash. This indicates that the opener is in programming mode.
  • Press and hold the button on the remote control you want to program. This will cause the indicator light on the opener to flash rapidly.
  • Release the button on the remote control, and the opener’s indicator light will stop flashing. This indicates that the remote control has been successfully programmed.
  • Repeat the process for any additional remote controls you want to program.

If you are having trouble programming your LiftMaster remote control, you can refer to the owner’s manual for your specific model or contact a LiftMaster professional for assistance.


To reset a standard set of codes on your LiftMaster garage door opener, all you have to do is press and hold a learn button for about 10 seconds or until a small LED light next to it turns off. The “Learn” button can be a different color and is usually on the back or side of your opener’s cover. Buttons can be yellow, green, red, or purple.

Once you delete the codes, none of your existing remotes will be able to open the door.

Press the “learn” button for about a second until a small LED light comes on, and then press the button on your remote control. You should hear a click, and the light on your opener should blink. This means that the Liftmaster remote was successfully reprogrammed.

Over the years, homeowners in Oklahoma City have trusted and relied on our services to install LiftMaster products, one of the most trusted garage door opener brands. They come with remote controls that work well and are easy to use. 


Before you start programming your LiftMaster garage door opener, there are a few things you need to know. First, you need to find the Learn button on the door opener and remember its color.

Most of the time, green, red, orange, purple, or yellow are used. To open the garage door, you might need a stepladder. Wall-mounted panels also have buttons or menus that can be used to help program them.

Also, you should have the remotes you want to program with you and make sure their batteries work. Press any button on the remote to see if it works well. It should be on even before it is programmed if it has an LED light.

There are two different kinds of LiftMaster remote controls: the standard and the MAX. These models are part of the first group:

  • LiftMaster 891LM
  • LiftMaster 893LM
  • LiftMaster 375UT

The second group includes:

  • LiftMaster 890MAX
  • LiftMaster 893MAX
  • LiftMaster 895MAX
  • LiftMaster 877MAX

Garage door openers, commercial door openers, external wired-in receivers, and gate operators are just some of the many devices that may be controlled by the LiftMaster standard remote.


If your LiftMaster garage door opener has stopped working or is making strange noises, it may be time to reset the standard LiftMaster codes. Here’s how to do it:

1. Locate the red “learn” button on your garage door opener unit. This is usually located near the garage door opener’s light bulb.

2. Press and hold the “learn” button for approximately 6 seconds until the garage door opener’s light bulb begins to flash.

3. On your garage door remote control, press and release the “smart” or “smart learn” button. The garage door opener’s light bulb will flash once to indicate that it has learned the code from the remote control.

4. Repeat steps 2-3 for each additional remote control that you wish to program.


To program your LiftMaster Max garage opener, you will need to first identify the type of garage door opener system that you have. There are two types of LiftMaster Max garage opener systems: the older model and the newer model. If you have the older model, you will need to use a special keypad to program your garage door opener. If you have the newer model, you can simply use the buttons on your garage door opener itself.

Once you have determined which type of system you have, programming your LiftMaster Max garage opener is a relatively simple process. For the older model, you will need to press and hold the “Learn” button on your garage door opener for approximately six seconds. Once the light on your garage door opens, you can release the “Learn” button. You can then enter your four-digit PIN code followed by the “#” sign. After you have done this, press and hold the “Enter” button for two seconds.

For the newer model, programming is even simpler. Just press and hold the “Smart” button on your garage door opener for approximately six seconds. The light on your garage door opener will flash and you can release the “Smart” button. You can then enter your four-digit PIN code followed by the “#” sign. Press and hold the “Enter” button for two seconds once again and your garage door opener will be programmed!

It is important to note that you can only program one button on the remote control at a time. If you need to program other buttons, repeat the steps for each button you want to program.

You should also test the remote control to see that it works the way you expect it to.

If you are having problems with any of these steps, LiftMaster has online manuals for most of its products, which can help you if you have the patience. Search for the model number of your remote control or garage door opener to get more information. You can also reach out to our garage door experts for help.


If your garage door opener doesn’t seem to be working as well as it used to, or if it seems to have forgotten some of its programmed settings, it may be time for a reset. Resetting your garage door opener is a simple process that can be done in just a few minutes.

First, locate the “learn” button on the unit to reset your garage door opener. This button is usually located near the top of the garage door opener and is typically red or green. Once you have found the learn button, press and hold it for approximately six seconds.

After you have held the learn button for six seconds, the garage door opener’s light will flash. At this point, you can release the learn button. The next time you use your garage door opener, it will reset itself and be ready to use again.
