Overhead door opener dip switch programming

January 8, 2017

Today I reprogrammed an older model overhead door opener in The Woodlands, Tx. Reprogramming overhead door remotes is not usually a high priority on the new homeowners “to do” list but it should be as much of a priority as a lock change or re-key and for the same reasons.  When you have this service performed, make sure you hire a licensed  locksmith. This particular one was an old dip switch model. Older garage door openers often utilize a DIP switch as the interface for programming or re-programming a code for the transmitter and receiver. The ones I have encountered have between 8 and 11 tiny switches arranged in a small package and soldered to the circuit board. By setting the DIP switches inside the transmitter, you control the code that the transmitter sends. The garage door would only open if the receiver’s DIP switch were set to the same pattern. So all I had to do was change the combination of the toggles on the actual overhead door opening unit and then replicate that combination on the remote handset. DIP switches are easily toggled with the tip of a pen or a small regular screwdriver. Be very careful though. I have noticed that this old plastic gets very brittle in its old age and can crumble. Here is an example of a what a DIP switch might look like.
