'rolling code' garage door opener: changing the 'codes batch' (former tenant) for security...

Threaded View
had a somewhat disagreeable tenant in the house we moved back into, and
suspect the guy might still have a garage door opener for our house. our
opener uses the genie 'rolling codes' system. I opened the transmitter,
found no mini-switches in there to change (at least near the battery).

question: short of entirely replacing the entire opener, is it possible
to change the "rolling codes batch" or "rolling codes groupings" that my
wife and I use so that it's NOT the same "batch" of rolling codes it
-formerly- was? so that our old tenant can no longer USE any opener he
may have? I'm 'pretty handy' with a soldering iron and tools, if need
be...but not real great at 'board level repairs'...

thanks for tips and clues on this :-)

Just reprogram your current transmitter/transmitters...any other
transmitters that were programmed will be deleted.

The opener will hold a total of 7 transmitters, keypads, & other access
devices. So until you program an 8th device or repeatingly program the
same transmitter the old ones will not be erased automatically. This
will only delete one at a time (the 1st transmitter that was programmed
originally gets deleted 1st) so to be sure you erased all of them you
would have do this step 7 times in a row. It's easier to erase the
memory 1st & start over.

Erase the memory 1st (erases all transmitters) by pressing & holding
the learn code button on the motor head for 10 seconds or until radio
signal indicator light (LED by learn button) goes out.

Re-program your transmitter by pressing & releasing the learn code
button (indicator LED blinks), press the transmitter button within 30
seconds (indicator LED goes solid), press the same transmitter button
again within 30 seconds (indicator LED goes out).

Repeat program steps for any additional transmitters you have.

Old tenant's transmitters no longer work & yours does. That's all there
is to it.
