Warning! During programming the garage door may operate. Keep people and objects clear of the moving door to prevent door damage or possible personal injury.

NOTE: For new transmitter, you must activate its security code before it can be programmed to the DoorMaster, idrive, Quantum and Classic drive openers.

NOTE: Activation steps describe the process to activate a transmitter’s security code.

The following steps describe the process to activate a transmitter’s security code.

Activating the Transmitter

  1. Press and hold the large transmitter button. The red LEDs will blink rapidly.
  2. After 2 seconds, the red LEDs will turn on continuously, indicating a successful activation. Release large button.
  3. The code for this transmitter has now been activated.
  4. You must now program this transmitter to the garage door operator. See “Transmitter Programming.

Transmitter Programming

NOTE: Any of the three transmitter buttons can be programmed to activate the door. In multi-door installations, each button or a combination of two buttons pushed at the same time can be programmed to activate a separate door. Only one button at a time (per-transmitter) can be programmed to activate a door.

To Program the transmitter:

1. Place the emergency disconnect in the manual door operated position. This is for safety reasons.

2. Press program button on DoorMaster light fixture, idrive, Quantum or Classic drive powerhead. Led will light or idrive powerhead will beep once indicating that is ready to learn transmitter.

3. Within 30 seconds, press and hold the desired transmitter button(s); LED will turn off or idrive powerhead will beep once. On the DoorMaster only, release the transmitter and press again. LED will light briefly then turn off.

4. Return the emergency disconnect handle to motor operated position.

5. Press same transmitter button(s) again: door should operate. Transmitter is now programmed to operate.

NOTE: idrive model only: The first transmitter command after programming will only open the door through a six inch up/down cycle. Normal door operation will then occur on all subsequent transmitter commands.

Battery: If the LED (light) on the transmitter does not turn on when a button is pressed or if the transmitter is becoming reduced, install fresh batteries. To change the batteries, insert a coin in the coin slot and twist to access the battery compartment. The transmitter uses two CR2016 batteries. Install fresh batteries with the positive (+) of the batteries facing downward into the bottom case half. Snap top case half onto bottom case half, insuring batteries remain in their correct locations.

NOTE: The operator can be activated by up to six remote control devices ( including) wall station and keyless entry controls). If a seventh control is programmed, one of the programmed controls will be overwritten and will no longer activate the operator. To clear the programming of all remote control devices, press and hold the DoorMaster light fixture program button, idrive, Quantum, Classic drive status LED goes out of idrive powerhead beeps three times, then all controls are erased.

NEVER let children operate or play with door controls. Keep remote controls away from children. Fatal injury could result should a child become trapped between the door and the floor.

ALWAYS keep moving door in sight and away from people and objects until it is completely closed. To prevent serious injury or death, avoid standing in the open doorway or walking through while door is moving.
