Remote Controls for Older Model Overhead Door Openers

Posted by Dave Willmes on Fri, Jan 27, 2012 @ 04:16 PM

Was your Overhead Door garage door opener installed prior to 1995?

If you answered YES to this question, do you know what replacement remote control will operate your Overhead Door garage door opener?

The purpose of this article is to outline how to order a replacement remote control for your older (pre-1995) Overhead Door garage door opener.

 

There are several remote controls that are available for Overhead Door garage door openers installed prior to 1995.  These remote controls are differentiated by the radio frequency that they transmit. The most common radio frequency is 390mhz. Other radio frequencies include: 312, 340, 380, and 412mhz.

Unfortunately, replacement remote controls that transmit at 340mhz are no longer available. However, in this particular case, you can install a universal radio receiver kit so that you can continue to operate your older model Overhead Door garage door opener with a hand-held remote control.

 

The 390mhz remote control is compatible with the following Overhead Door garage door openers:

455, 456390 frequency remote control

550, 551, 555, 556

655, 656

1055, 1056

 

The following Overhead Door garage door openers may be compatible with a 340, 360 or 380mhz remote control.

45, 45A, 45B, 45C, 450, 450A

55, 55A, 55B, 55C

65, 65A, 65B, 65C

1000, 1000A

 

Please note that any remote control where the frequency is followed by letters (for example 360-BBC) are still available.

Any remote control where the frequency is followed by number (for example 360-188) are no longer available and can not be ordered.
