Setting Up Your Initial PIN

M3-631 & M3-691

Your keyless entry system comes factory pre-programmed with 1 random code and 1 PIN. The factory pre-programmed PIN is 1-2-3-4. If you are using other remote control transmitters to operate your garage door, the transmitter code must be transferred to the keyless entry system from the active transmitter you are already using.

To Program PIN & Transfer the Code from a Transmitter

M3-631 & M3-691

  1. Open terminal and connect the keyless entry system to the active transmitter using the programming connector.

  2. Press and hold the transmitter button you use to open and close the door. On the keyless entry system, press the ENTER button. The keypad will illuminate.

  3. Input any new 4-digit PIN of your choice. Press ENTER button again. Continue pressing the transmitter button until the LEDs on the keyless entry system blinks rapidly.

  4. This indicates the keyless entry system has learned the code from the transmitter, and stored it under the PIN that you entered. Remove programming connector and close the terminal.

Repair or Replace?

As the largest moving part in your home, the safe, secure, and efficient operation of your garage door is essential.

Repair

When your garage door opener stops working properly, it can often be repaired without too much problem and repair is typically a less expensive option than replacing your unit. We often recommend repair over replacement for this reason.

Replace

There are times when replacement is your best option:

  • If your opener is more than 15 years old we recommend replacement to improve the safe operation of your door. Note: Federal Regulations (UL 325) were updated in 1993 making garage door openers safer.
  • If we have safety concerns with a specific Brand or the manufacturer has been successfully sued for safety defects, we will not repair that model.
  • If there are no photo electric safety eyes present on your system, we will not be able to repair the unit.
  • If the brand no longer exists, parts will be unavailable & replacing your opener is usually the only option.

Warranty

At Precision Garage Door Service of Puget Sound, we take pride in our work and our reputation. That's why we back everything we do with an outstanding warranty.
