Hi Jake, it is possible that you have a unit that doesn’t have the learn button and may have dip-switches. If your operator is equipped with the learn button you will find the learn button, under the white light cover, near the antenna wire hanging down. If you need any further assistance, please reach out to us at 1-800-354-3643.
