Marantec M55 Operator - Programming The Garage Door Remote


Below are instructions on programming a garage door remote to the Marantec model M55 operator. You'll only use the instructions below if you don't have any remotes programmed to the operator. The Marantec operators can only hold the code of one remote. Additional remotes copy the code of the one programmed remote so if you are looking to program additional remotes check out the blog post Programming Marantec Remote Video here. However, what do you do if you don't have an existing remote (perhaps you lost it or you just moved into the home and they didn't leave you a remote). Here's a rundown on how to program a new remote by using the buttons on the powerhead (motor) unit on the ceiling.

Here is what the programming buttons look like on the powerhead that you will use to program the remote:

Program the remote into the opener powerhead by using the "+", "-", and "P" buttons on the powerhead. Here is a rundown on how to program the remote using the buttons on the powerhead unit on the ceiling. You should see 3 red buttons:  "+"button / "-"button / "P" button.

TO PROGRAM A REMOTE (or make/change any adjustment):
 
Press and hold the "P" button for approximately 3 seconds. When
the display of the DOOR OPEN POSITION on the LED Display illuminates release the button.
You are now ready to set or change the desired adjustment.

Press and release the "P" button until the REMOTE CONTROL icon on the LED DISPLAY is illuminated

The opener can now learn the code of the hand-held remote transmitter. 

Press and hold the button on the remote transmitter.

Release the remote transmitter button. The opener has now learned the particular
code of this transmitter.

Once the opener has successfully received the code from the
transmitter, press and release the "P" button. This stores the
code in memory. It also completes the adjustment setting
sequence, and completes the program process.


The ON icon should now be illuminated on the LED DISPLAY and the opener is ready for operation.


 And that's how you program a remote to the Marantec M55 operator. Remember if  you need to program additional remotes you can see the video on how to use the programming jumper here.

Do you need a new remote for your operator? You can purchase the Digital 382 Marantec remote here (it replaces the old discontinued M3-2312 remote). In the market for a wireless keyless entry? You can find the Marantec M13-631 Keyless Entry here.

Marantec Q7500 and Q7700 - Programming Garage Door Opener Remote




Below are instructions on programming a garage door remote to the Marantec model Q7500 and model Q7700 operators. You'll only use the instructions below if you don't have any remotes programmed to the operator. The Marantec operators can only hold the code of one remote.

Here is a rundown on how to program the remote using the buttons on the powerhead unit on the ceiling. You should see 3 red buttons:  "+"button / "-"button / "P" button. There are also 4 numbered red LED lights.

TO PROGRAM A REMOTE (or make/change any adjustment):
 
Press and hold the "P" button for approximately 2 seconds. When
all LEDs illuminate and LED #1 begins to blink, release the button.
You are now ready to set or change the desired adjustment.

Press and release the "P" button until the #3 LED is blinking

The opener can now learn the code of the hand-held transmitter. 

While LED#3 is blinking, press and hold the button on the transmitter.

When you see LED #3 flashing rapidly, you can release the transmitter button. The
opener has now learned the particular code of this transmitter.

Once the opener has successfully received the code from the
transmitter, press and release the "P" button. This stores the
code in memory. It also completes the adjustment setting
sequence, and completes the program process. The LEDs will
automatically fade out in a circular pattern, which indicates that
the program mode is complete.
LED #4 should now be illuminated, and the opener is ready for
operation.


 And that's how you program a remote to either the Marantec Q7500 or Q7700 operator. Remember if  you need to program additional remotes you can see the video on how to use the programming jumper here.

Marantec Digital 382 Remote Replaces M3-2312 Remote

At the end of 2016 Marantec introduced the new Digital 382 2-button Remote. Marantec discontinued the M3-2312 2-button remote.
Digital 382 Remote


Here is the new Marantec Digital 382 2-button Remote.
It functions and programs the same as the old M3-2312
Remote. It is slightly thinner and has two buttons that can
be programmed to two different Marantec operators. It also
has a red LED light on the front that glows when either
old M3-2312 Remote
button is pushed. It also has a visor clip on the back of
the remote.

One minor difference between the Digital 382 Remote
and the M3-2312 Remote is that the new remote doesn't
have the small hole near the bottom of the remote that
the M3-2312 Remote did. Not a big deal but some
homeowners would use that hole to attach the remote
to a keychain. We recommend that you purchase the
M3-3313 Remote if you wish to put the remote on a
keychain.

The remote works on the current 315MHz frequency that the Marantec operators use (which is the same frequency the M3-2312 used).

The Digital 382 2-button Marantec Remote is now available and can be purchased at the Garage Door Zone Store.

The New Genie LED Light Bulb For Your Garage Door Operator


http://www.garagedoorzone.com/LEDB1-R-Genie-Garage-Door-Opener-LED-Light-Bulb-LEDB1-R.htm

A few years ago we had a blog post explaining how LED and low energy fluorescent bulbs could cause interference with your garage door operator remotes. The problem with most of those bulbs is that they aren't made for garage door operators and they are cheaply made. The rattling and movement of the operator can cause the internal components of those bulbs to break. When they break they will still light up but they can also transmit a frequency that blocks the radio signal being sent from the remote.

Genie has solved those problems with the new LEDB1-R Garage Door Opener LED Light Bulb. The bulb is specifically made for garage door operators and will work in almost any operator. Here are some of the specifics of the LEDB1-R:
  • Brightness - 800 lumens (equivalent to 60 watts)
  • Estimated Yearly Energy Cost - $1.07 per year (based on 3hrs day / .11/kWh)
  • Life - 22.8 years (based on 3 hours/day)
  • Light Appearance - warm (3000 k)
  • Energy Used - 10 watts
  • Mercury Free
The bulb puts out the equivalent to 60 watts which is plenty for most garages. It is also vibration resistant and tested to withstand temperatures up to -22F. This LED bulb is made for garage door operators will probably outlast the operator itself with a life expectancy of 22.8 years! Most garage door operators have a life expectancy of 10-15 years.

Do you want a light bulb that's made for your operator and you'll probably never have to replace again (at least until you have to replace the operator itself)? The Genie LEDB1-R LED Light Bulb is the answer. You can purchase and find out more about the bulb here at the Garage Door Zone.
