FCC AND IC CERTIFIED

All devices comply with Part 15 of the FCC Rules.

Operation is subject to the following two conditions: (1)

this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2)

this device must accept any interference received,

including interference that may cause  

undesired operation.

ABOUT DUAL FREQUENCY

REMOTE TRANSMITTERS

Your garage door opener (GDO) features a unique dual fre-
quency remote control system for reliable service in today’s
crowded airwaves. Overcrowded airwaves may intermittently
interfere with GDO’s remote control system. The dual 
frequency feature greatly reduces the possibility of 
unwanted interference.
The receiver in the GDO’s powerhead can receive signals at 315
AND 390 MHz. The remote is factory set at 315 MHz. See Figure
2 and 3 on page 11 for frequency selector switch.
Switch your remote control frequency when:

• Remote does not have adequate range.
• Remote works inconsistently with fresh battery 

installed - LED feedback lights up when pressing button.

• Programming your car’s HomeLink® system.

To program a HomeLink® device:
(This GDO is HomeLink® compatible.)

• Use a small flat screwdriver to switch the frequency 

selector to 390 MHz.

• Follow the HomeLink® instructions in your car 

owner’s manual.

• Reset the remote control frequency to 315 MHz for

everyday use.

WARNING

Too much force will prevent safe operation of the garage
door. Someone could be seriously injured or killed if the
door force is set too high. A closing door may not reverse
properly and someone could be pinned under it. An
opening door might not stop when going up and 
someone hanging on the door could be pinned between
the door and the header. Never increase the force above
the minimum required to move the door.Never adjust the
