From time to time, you may wish to change the PIN code of your LiftMaster® overhead door opener. The simple programming of the LiftMaster through the keyless entry keypad makes it easy to change the code. You may want to change your code due to several different situations, including:
- If you move to a new home
- If someone has moved out
- If you have suffered a break-in
- If you have difficulty remembering your code
It doesn’t matter why you want to change your PIN — we can help you do it. Simply follow these steps to reset the code of your LiftMaster keyless entry system and create a new PIN that’s easy for you to remember:
- Step 1: Enter the old four-digit on the keypad
- Step 2: Hold the pound sign (the light on your garage door opener will flash twice)
- Step 3: Enter a new four-digit code
- Step 4: Press and hold the enter button (the light will flash again)
Your new code is set! Be sure to try it out right away to ensure it’s working as expected.
Resetting your garage door opener PIN can give you added peace of mind from knowing your PIN is secret and can also make it easier for you to remember. Choose a code that you and your family can easily recall but that no one else will guess. Avoid obvious numbers like your street address or part of your postal code, for example.
You can also consult the owner’s manual of your LiftMaster overhead door opener if you want more information on setting your PIN or other programming features of your keyless entry pad.
