Marantec Mac Lift Deluxe 2005 and Elite 2007 Series Openers
Do you happen to own a Marantec Mac Lift Deluxe 2005 Series or Elite 2007 Series garage door opener? Are you looking for a replacement remote? Well, I've got good news and bad news. The bad news is that Marantec no longer makes the remotes for these openers. The good news is that you don't have to junk your garage door opener - there is a solution.
The Mac Lift Series of operators came equipped with a 40MHz (or 433MHz) radio receiver and remotes . Somewhere along the line Marantec decided to manufacture two new models of operators - the M-Line and Q-Line. At this point they had three main models in the line and decided three was too many (this is my theory). They stopped production of the Mac Lift series of openers and the use of the 40MHz (433MHz and 390MHz) radio receivers and remotes. What are all the Mac Lift owners to do for new remotes? Not to worry. Marantec came up with a solution.
The 75424 Plug-In Radio Receiver. I know I've written about this receiver before but I get A LOT of questions pertaining to the Mac Lift openers so I figured it would be best to have a separate blog. The plug-in radio receiver is just that - it plugs in to an electrical outlet. You then run two wires (bell wire which is included) from the receiver to the back of the powerhead. If you plug the receiver in the ceiling where the opener is plugged in then you're only going to use about 3 feet of wire. After you have it hooked up, you press the program button on the plug-in receiver, then press the button on the M3-2312 Remote control (included) and PRESTO! or SHAZAMM! your done. You now have a working remote for your Mac Lift opener.
The Marantec External Plug-In Radio Receiver utilizes the 315MHz radio frequency. This is the same frequency that their newer models use plus almost every other manufacturer in the garage door opener industry uses. It's a good solid unit and should give you the ability to use your opener for many more years.
