How to Program a LiftMaster Keypad

If you have a LiftMaster garage door opener, having an outside wireless keypad is a great accessory to add. It allows you, your children, friends or family to gain entry to the garage space without having a remote. This is really good if you’re going out of town and need someone to water your plants, take care of your pets, or for other reasons. Programming a LiftMaster keypad is really easy. In today’s post we’ll be breaking down these simple steps. Keep reading to learn more. If you need affordable Palm Springs CA garage door repair and service, call the experts at Hanson. You’ll save lots of money and time by choosing Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service!

To add, program, or change the codes of your LiftMaster wireless keypad, please follow these simple steps:

  • First, locate the Learn button on the back side of your LiftMaster garage door opener. You’ll need to use a ladder to access it. You can also use the learn button on the wall station control panel.
  • Next you’ll need to press and release the Learn button. If your LiftMaster garage door opener has a MyQ Control Panel you will need to press and release the Learn button twice.
  • Now you have 30 seconds to enter your 4 digit code into the LiftMaster keypad and press the Enter button.
  • Depending on type and model of LiftMaster opener you have, either the LED lights will either go out or the garage door opener’s lights will blink to indicate the PIN you entered into the keypad was successfully set.
  • You’ll need to wait for about 10 seconds and then verify that your PIN number is working.

Be sure to choose a PIN that is easy to remember but not so obvious that a stranger could guess what it is. Avoid using a pin that has your street address, postal code, or telephone number. If you need to let a friend or neighbor enter your garage while traveling, be sure to assign a temporary code.

Fixing the Gaps On Your Palm Springs Garage Door

One of the best reasons to own a garage is the fact that it provides homeowners with a nice place to park and store their vehicle. The home garage space can also be used for alternative purposes, such as game rooms, personal gyms, or family media rooms. Some people use their garage primarily for extra storage. No matter your use, you like the fact that your space keeps you, and your stuff, protected from the elements, bugs and other pests. If you have any gaps between your door and the frame, or ground, it might be time for our Palm Springs garage door repair and service. At Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service, we have technicians available 24/7 for emergency service.

If your Palm Springs garage door will not close all the way to the floor, you garage door opener might need an adjustment. This gap between the door and floor can allow for all types of things to enter your house. Mice, bugs, squirrels and even the weather will have easy access to your home garage space. If there is a small gap, some animals will actually chew through to make a hole that is large enough for them to fit through. Your Palm Springs garage door seals are flexible and possibly easy to chew through if they are not flush with the ground. Keeping the seals fully compressed against the floor will certainly discourage them from trying to enter your home.

What Are The Best Palm Springs Garage Doors

Trying to pick the correct type and style of garage doors can be overwhelming. There are tons of styles, colors, ratings, insulated, non-insulated and on and on. When it comes time to decide what kind of Palm Springs garage door you need, you should consider the following – children (if you have any), pets (if you have some), the type of security you need, how cold it gets in the winter, and how hot it gets in the summer. You want to make sure that when you pick your new Palm Springs garage doors, you choose an expert like Hanson Overhead to perform the correct installation and buy a door with materials that match your lifestyle and climate. Garages can be used for many different types of rooms other than just parking your car. Below are some of the more common garage space types with the correct type of garage doors.

Choosing The Best Palm Springs Garage Doors

Workshops – Want to use your garage space as a workshop instead of a parking spot? The type of garage door used for workshops, game rooms, media rooms, and other recreational rooms are different than one typically used for parking your car. You should invest in an insulated garage and door. Consider this room as a living space. An insulated door will cut heating and cooling costs and make the space much more comfortable. Polystyrene, or polyurethane insulation that is sandwiched between layers of steel, with weather stripping seems to be the best combination for this type of space.

If you are mainly using your garage space as a workshop then a garage door with section joints could be unnecessary and inconvenient. You should consider swinging or Dutch doors. These create a distinctive look that will set your home apart form your neighbors.

Climate – Climate can play a big part in what type of garage door you need. In colder climates, cheaply made fiberglass and plastic garage doors can crack, or break in constantly freezing temperatures. Steel and wood does great in the cold but cannot stand up to the punishment that wet weather and salt air dish out.

Children – If you have kids then you want a Palm Springs garage doors that aresafe, durable and reliable. If you’re going to be playing basketball in the driveway, you’ll need to get a dent-resistant, 24-gauge steel garage door. You’ll also want to purchase a garage door with finger protection over the section joints. This might save a trip, or two, to the emergency room. If your Palm Springs garage door opener predates 1992, you should replace it. These older models might not have the same type of modern sensors that will stop the door from closing when an object blocks it.

Security – Steel is the best building material if security is your primary concern. Wood is also durable but not as tough. All new garage door openers have new technology that allow for rolling combinations of one million random codes. Theses codes reset each time the garage door opens. This safety feature makes it really difficult for thieves trying to steal your garage door opener combination with another remote.

You also want to consider the design. You want your Palm Springs garage doors to look great and give the face of your home a nice makeover. Our Wayne Dalton Palm Springs garage doors do just that. At Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service, we offer only the best in Wayne Dalton doors.

DIY Palm Springs Garage Door Repairs

What do you do when your garage door stops working correctly? At Hanson Overhead, we offer twenty-four hour emergency Palm Springs garage door repair services every day of the week. Did you know that there are some problems that you can actually fix on your own? In some cases you do not even need a Hanson Overhead of Palm Springs expert to come out and assess the problem. Continue reading to learn about these common garage door problems that you can repair yourself.

Palm Springs Garage Door Repairs You Can Do Yourself

Have you ever seen your garage door open and close by itself? It’s not a ghost. The explanation could be really simple. There could be someone close to your home that is using the same security key that you are. This could be causing interference with your garage door receiver. You should also be aware that radios in police vehicles and aircraft can also have the same effect. So how do you keep this from happening? You simply change your security code. According to the experts at Hanson Overhead of Palm Springs, this is a very simple process that can be easily completed.

The actual steps to change a security or access code are different from one garage door opener to another so make sure to read the instructions. You can probably find a step-by-step video on Youtube as well, if you search.

In most cases, you simply have to hold down a specific button on your garage door opener for thirty or so seconds while you stand close to the box. Refer to your manual to locate the correct button. Lots of newer garage door systems now come with new technology that generates a rolling code that changes automatically after a certain amount of time.

What do you do if your Palm Springs garage door closes half-way down and then opens back-up whenever you try to operate it? First, check around the security sensor system. This sensor detects whether or not anything is in the way of the door actually closing and tells the system to open back up. If there are any objects in the way of the sensor’s path, including your feet, your garage door will automatically open back up. Make sure there are no items that could be interfering with this sensor such as brooms, buckets and pails, toys, flowers or other plants. Also, check the sensor’s lens and clean it. Sometimes a dirty lens will cause this problem. Now, your garage door should work correctly again.

What do you do when nothing happens when you press the buttons on your transmitter? It’s probably the battery in the transmitter. If not, check the power supply for the garage door opener. If none of these help you might need to actually replace the transmitter as it could be damaged.
