How Do You Reset a Genie Intellicode Garage Door Opener?

To reset a Genie Intellicode garage door opener, press the Learn Code button on the garage door opener receiver and the controller, press the button on the controller you wish to program, and test to confirm the connection. Repeat the process for each button, as this gives the button a new matching frequency; the process may vary slightly based on the Intellicode model.

The Learn Code button, which is always just above the antenna wire, may be at the front or rear of the garage door opener. The button is typically black or red, while the indicator light that activates when you press the button is always red. Press and release the button, waiting for it to flash before syncing it with the controller.

Sync the controller with the receiving unit by pressing and releasing the Learn Code button on the device. The indicator on the device should blink twice. Press the desired button on the remote. Only one press and release is necessary with Intellicode models; the LED indicator should immediately flash to confirm the new programming. Test the button by pressing it again after the flash completes. The receiver should activate the garage door in the desired fashion.
