Replacing A Marantec Mac-Lift Garage Door Opener Remote

Marantec Mac Lift III garage door opener
Marantec Mac Lift Opener
We have covered this before but we still get a lot of inquiries about replacement remotes for the Marantec Mac-Lift garage door openers so we figured it was time to cover the topic again.

ML-1401V Remote
The Mac-Lift openers were (Marantec no longer offers the Mac-Lift model opener) available in two models: the Deluxe 2005 and the Elite 2007. Both models came standard with a 40MHz frequency radio receiver and remote. Unfortunately with the end of the Mac-Lift openers came the end of the 40MHz frequency remotes and keyless entry. Marantec no longer offers any of the 40MHz remotes: ML-1401V, ML-1402V and ML-1404V. The ML-640 keyless entry has also been discontinued. 


Marantec Plug-in Radio Receiver Set

There is a solution! Marantec offers a replacement radio receiver set that hooks up to your Mac-Lift opener. The #75424 Plug-in Radio Receiver Set is a simple solution and much cheaper than having to buy a whole new garage door operator. The plug-in radio receiver does just that...it plugs into an electrical outlet near the garage door opener. You then connect two wires to the plug-in receiver and two wires to the back of the garage door opener. Then you press the program button on the plug-in receiver and press the button on the new remote. That's it...not much to it. A simple solution and you'll get many more years out of your Mac-Lift garage door opener.

The #75424 Plug-in Radio Receiver Set comes complete with: Plug-in radio receiver, one (1) M3-2312 2-Button 315MHz Remote, 2-strand bell wire and installation instructions. Everything you need in one box.

Additional M3-2312 Remotes or M3-3313 Micro Remotes can be added in addition to the M13-631 Wireless Keyless Entry.

To program the keyless entry you'll use a programmed remote to transfer the code from the remote to the additional keyless and add your 4-digit pin number. It's actually pretty simple. The only problem is that once the keyless is programmed you'll notice a delay every time you use the keyless entry - you have to hold your finger on the enter key after you enter your 4-digit pin for 4 or 5 seconds before the opener will run. This can be a little bit of a pain if you're in a hurry but that's the way the keyless works with the plug-in receiver.
