The square smart button is located on the side or the back of the motor head, and is colored red, green, amber, orange, or purple. It is directly under the #1 wire terminal screw.
Programming Genie Intellicode Remote Transmitters
** To erase all Intellicode remotes and wireless keyless entry, hold down on the learn button until the indicator light stops blinking, then proceed to Step 2.
These transmitters work by matching the settings on the internal code setting switches with the same set of switches in the receiver on the garage ceiling. The receiver is located either behind the light lens of the Genie garage door opener motor head, or inside an external small rectangular box on the ceiling, which is connected to the motor head by a set of wires. Note: the frequency of the transmitter must be the same frequency as the receiver on the ceiling for it to work. Genie has been making the 390 MHz frequency exclusively for the last 15 years.
These garage door opener transmitters have 2 smaller switches to the right of the internal Code Setting Switches. The small right switch should be set according to how many Code Setting Switches in your receiver (either 9 or 12). The small left switch is for programming purposes. To program a button for one of your doors, follow the instructions below:
Genie Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model GPWK-12, GWK
(works with remotes having 9 or 12 internal code setting switches. Keypad is black with a slide-up cover showing the Genie logo only)
Step-By-Step Programming Procedure
This keyless garage door opener entry pad works with Genie transmitters using 390 MHz frequency. It is NOT compatible with Genie Intellicode transmitters (if your keypad has Intellicode printed on the cover, go to the next set of programming instructions below). The Door Code in the Step-By-Step Procedure at right is determined by the internal code switches inside your transmitter and the accompanying chart. Determine the settings of the first 3 switches and write down the corresponding number from the chart. Continue with the next 3 switches and its corresponding number, and so on, until the last set of 3 switches. You should have 3 or 4 Door Code numbers.

NOTE: If red indicator light does not blink, it is not taking the programming steps. Check the 9 volt battery under the keypad numbers. To access, press inward, under the number pad lip while sliding downward to expose the battery.
Press the Receiver Learn Code button on the Power Head Receiver of your Genie Garage Door Opener. This small black button is located behind the light lens at the motor head and is nearest the floppy 6 inch antenna wire that protrudes from the power head. When pressed, a radio signal indicator will start blinking red for 30 seconds.
Adding More Doors to Keypad:
With most Genie units, remove the light lens globe to expose the Learn Button on the motor head. The learn button is sometimes located on the back of the unit, or with Accelerator openers, it is under the light lens near the hinge of the lens globe. Always locate the floppy antenna wire first. The Learn Button can be found not far from this antenna. See Troubleshooting Guides for Accelerator photo.
Intellicode Model GWKP (off-white with flip-up cover)
Programming Instructions for the GWKP Genie garage door opener keyless entry involves following the two sets of steps below:
Find the Learn Code Button and the LED indicator light on your Genie motor head inside the garage. It is usually behind the light lens and close to the floppy antenna wire. If your Door Opener does not have an antenna, you have an External Receiver. The External Receiver cover must be removed to access the Learn Code button and the indicator LED. Follow Steps 1 through 3 outlined below:

HOMELINK IN-CAR REMOTE PROGRAMMING INSTRUCTIONS
To program a built-in-car transmitter to a rolling code garage door opener (Genie rolling code is called Intellicode, Liftmaster/Sears is called Security plus), you should take the following steps.
Programming a Fixed-Code Device (Majority of units made prior to 1996)
These devices have internal dip-switches located near the battery of your remote.
Programming a Rolling Code Garage Door Opener
If your in-car (UHR) remote has 3 LED lights, one above each button, you should follow the instructions below to program your Rolling Code Garage Door Opener.
Programming a Fixed Code Device (Majority of units made prior to 1996)
Below is a picture of a typical 12-switch DIP switch layout located on your hand-held remote control under the battery cover (your remote may have 8-12 DIP switches). Note: Genie, Linear, Multi-Code and Stanley have only 2 position switches: up or down.
Programming of the Fixed Code device is now complete.
Sears Craftsman garage door openers have an important safety feature that prevents the door from closing when something or someone is in the way. This safety reversing sensor is actually a pair of electric eyes that generate and receive a light signal that must remain unbroken for the door to operate. If it's interrupted while the door is closing, the door reverses and a safety light on the opener flashes 10 times.
The installation instructions for a Craftsman door opener call for installing the sensors 6 inches above the floor, and you can mount them to the floor, the wall or the door track with the brackets provided. If they are properly aligned, both sensors display a steady light; the one on the receiving sensor is green and the one on the sending sensor is orange. If something is in the path of the beam or the sensors are misaligned, it's typically the green light on the receiving sensor that flashes. When the orange light on the sending sensor flashes or stays off, it usually indicates a loose wiring connection.
The most common cause of sensor malfunction is also the easiest to remedy: Something is blocking the beam. It may be a garden tool or something left behind by children, such as a wagon or beach ball. If your garage door has been in place long enough, enough dirt may have formed on the lenses to block the beam, or cobwebs might be in the way. When this happens, the green light on the receiving sensor flashes or it stays off altogether. The orange light on the sending sensor will remain unaffected and be glowing steadily.
The green indicator light on the receiving sensor also flashes or fails to illuminate when the sensor is out of alignment with the sending sensor. You can often restore alignment without tools; simply loosen the wing nut holding the sending sensor to its galvanized steel mounting bracket and adjust its orientation until the green light on the receiving sensor glows steadily, then tighten the nut. If the orange indicator light on the sending sensor is off, it usually indicates a bad electrical connection. Check the connection to the sensor and follow the wire all the way to the terminal on the back of the opener. You might find a staple or nail cutting through the wire insulation.
Some sensors temporarily malfunction at certain times of the day, and the problem is related to the angle of the sun. If the sun falls squarely on the receiving sensor, it can fail to detect the light beam generated by the other sensor. To remedy this, you might have to construct a guard around the sensor to block sunlight; an empty paper towel roll works well for this. Cut about 2 inches from the end of the roll and tape it to the sensor with duct tape to restore sensor operation.

THIS GARAGE DOOR OPENER IS DESIGNED AND TESTED TO OFFER During assembly and installation of your opener, instructions will call for the use of.
Your Craftsman garage door opener comes equipped with a safety reversal system designed to keep your family and pets safe from injury or death. The safety reversal system automatically opens the garage door in the event the door comes into contact with an object that blocks its down travel distance. Failure to properly adjust the travel distance on your Craftsman garage door could result in the failure of the safety reversal system.
Stand behind the Craftsman garage door opener and face the garage door to determine the left and right sides of the motor. Set a stepladder under the left side of the opener motor to access the light bulb cover.
Find the round tabs on each side of the light bulb cover. Press the round tabs with your fingers to release the light bulb cover from the top of the motor. Rotate the cover away from the top of the motor to access the travel limits adjustment screws.
Press the switch on the wall to operate the Craftsman garage door opener. If your door fails to open farther than five feet, you must increase the up travel distance. Use a flat-head screwdriver to rotate the right adjustment screw clockwise. Each full rotation of the adjustment screw increases the up travel distance by two inches. Press the wall switch once again after you make the adjustments to determine if additional adjustments to the up travel are necessary.
Push the garage door opener wall switch to determine if the down travel distance needs adjusting. Use the flat-head screwdriver to rotate the left adjustment screw counterclockwise if the garage door fails to close completely. Each rotation of the down travel screw increases the down travel by two inches. Press the wall switch to operate the opener to determine if you need additional adjustments.
Adjust the down travel distance if the garage door opens automatically once it reaches the closed position. Use the flat-head screwdriver to rotate the left adjustment screw clockwise to decrease the down travel distance. Again, each full rotation of the adjustment screw decreases the down travel distance by two inches.
Open the garage door. Test the travel distance adjustment by placing a 2-by-4 inch piece of lumber in the garage door opening. Turn the down travel adjustment screw one-quarter turn if the garage door fails to reverse automatically when it touches the lumber.
Close the light bulb cover after you are satisfied with the travel-distance adjustment.

Craftsman garage door openers are manufactured by The Chamberlain Group To program a Craftsman garage door remote, you must press and release its.
Same problem here. I have a Sears 139.53615SR opener (made by Chamberlain - who makes most garage door openers. Interesting company, family owned!).
The original openers have 9 DIP switches (only 512 codes) and then a LEARNING button on the opener itself. You set the switches and then press LEARN.
Aftermarket remotes can be used, if they are Chamberlain compliant. You can also use HOMELINK in your car. I have two aftermarket Chamberlain remotes, use HOMELINK in one car, and have a keypad (outside) made by CLICKR. The all work fine.
However, the door is going up (and down!) on its own. I adjusted the down force (increased) and adjusted the down limits and checked for obstructions. I also disconnected the manual (hardwire) button at both ends to check for shorts in the button and wiring. No go.
The problem is, with only 512 codes, it is not hard to have the same code as your neighbor. And it seems that with each additional code you "learn" on the machine, it fails to ERASE the older codes.
So if you program your remote 512 times, well, you've basically told it to accept all possible codes.
The only thing I can think is, however, that the memory on the circuit board has to be less than 512 entries. So if you keep "learning" the device on a remote (which you also reset for a new code each time) it may eventually erase all the old codes as it runs out of memory. I will try this next.
It is an odd design - using DIP switches AND a learning receiver. Today, most designs use a rolling code learning only and the instructions on the newer units talk about "erasing old codes".
Not so for this unit. It may be time to replace the circuit board or the entire opener.
I hate to do this as it has been reliable. I did rebuild the drivetrain five years ago ($25 kit) with a new worm gear and drive gear and bearing assembly.
Chamberlain makes a good product. This one, however, is older and without the five-billion rolling code feature, well, 512 codes just doesn't make it!
