PRODUCT FEATURES
The purpose of this booklet is to provide assembly,
installation and operation information concerning the
herein described Residential Garage Door Opener and
related Accessory Products.
NOTICE
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THIS INSTRUCTION
MANUAL BE READ AND UNDERSTOOD
COMPLETELY BEFORE INSTALLATION OR
OPERATION IS ATTEMPTED.
NOTICE
THE IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS AND
INSTRUCTIONS IN THIS MANUAL CANNOT
COVER ALL POSSIBLE CONDITIONS AND
SITUATIONS WHICH MAY OCCUR DURING
ITS USE. IT MUST BE UNDERSTOOD THAT
COMMON SENSE AND CAUTION MUST BE
EXERCISED BY THE PERSON(S) INSTALLING,
MAINTAINING AND OPERATING THE
EQUIPMENT DESCRIBED HEREIN. DO NOT
USE THIS EQUIPMENT FOR ANY OTHER
THAN ITS INTENDED PURPOSE - OPERATING
OVERHEAD GARAGE DOORS.
STANDARD FEATURES:
Digital Radio Controls: This opener is equipped with
a pre-programmed transmitter to one of over nineteen
thousand private codes. The transmitter can be reprogrammed without difficulty using the external
operation buttons. The power head is easily
programmed to accept the transmitter signal.
(PageZ14)
Safe Finish™ Photosystem: An invisible infrared
beam of light guards the door opening and reverses a
downward moving door if the beam is broken by a
stationary or moving object. The motor control
circuitry constantly monitors the Safe Finish™
Photosystem for proper operation.
Super Station (Deluxe Wall Push Button): A
feature-packed accessory unit, the Super Station allows
access to all of the opener's functions. Independent
Open, Close, and Stop buttons permits full control of
the door’s operation. The opener's built-in light can be
turned on or off independent of door operation. A
Learn Enable button allows programming of the radio
controls at floor level. A Security Switch allows the
opener to be deactivated for extended periods of time.
A Security Disable switch is provided if the garage
door is the only entryway into the garage. Lighted
Push Buttons enhance nighttime use. (Page 17)
Manual Release: A pull cord allows separation of
the drive mechanism and manual operation of the
door when desired, as in the event of a power failure.
The trolley release can be set to lock out automatic
reconnection if desired. (Page19)
Automatic Reconnection: Once power is restored,
or normal operation of the door is again desired, the
trolley release can be set so initiating operation in the
normal manner (Push Button, Radio Control, etc.)
will effect automatic reconnection of the Manual
Release Mechanism. (Page 19)
Alternating Action Operation: The mechanical
wall pushbutton functions in an Open/Stop/Close/
Stop & Reverse mode in normal operation. (Page 12)
Sensing System: A built-in sensing system detects
obstructions during door operation. If in the
downward (close) travel mode, the opener will sense
an obstruction and reverse the direction of the door.
In the open mode, the opener will stop. Since all
doors are different, the Sensing System has
independent adjustments for customizing the level of
force required for the normal opening and closing of
specified doors. ( Page 16)
Close Limit Switch: In winter months it's common
for small pieces of ice or packed snow to be trapped
under the door. Ground swelling can also effect the
close limit setting of the opener. The opener’s Close
Limit Switch overrides the Sensing System during
the last one inch of closing travel and prevents the
door from reversing if it encounters an obstruction at
this point.
Constant Contact To Close Operation: For utmost
safety and security, the operation mode allows
constant contact on the mechanical Push Button to
close the door if the Safe Finish™ Photosystem
beam becomes misaligned or if there is an
irregularity in the wiring to the device. In this mode
of operation, a Radio Transmitter cannot be used to
close the door.
OPTIONAL FEATURES:
Keyless Entry System: A tamper resistant outdoor
keypad, the optional Keyless Entry System permits
entry to the garage without use of key or radio
transmitter. Easily programmable, it accommodates
a four digit PIN code (10,000 possible codes).
Lighted Buttons enhance nighttime use.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT INSTRUCTIONS
Remote Control Radio System
As your transmitter is pre-coded at the factory with
three of over 19,000 unique codes. As such, it is
possible to control a single operator or a group of
operators at one location or at multiple locations. The
transmitter may be mounted on a visor using the metal
visor clip (included) or attached to a key-chain with
the built-in attachment. Your Remote Control Radio
System transmitter is compatible with the
HomeLink® systems.
Resetting the Transmitter Code
Each button of the transmitter is pre-coded at the
factory to one of over 19,000 unique codes. Follow
the instructions below to set your own code or to code
multiple buttons or transmitters to the same code.
You can record your code(s) on the back page of the
manual. If recoding is not desired, skip to
“Programming the Radio Receiver in the Power Head
Unit” on the next page.
The transmitter codes are set using the three operation
buttons (+, O, and -) on the front of the transmitter.
There are three steps to set the code: 1- The
transmitter is placed in program mode; 2- the desired
button is selected; and 3- the code is entered. Any
one of the buttons or all three buttons may be coded
by the sequence outlined below. Also see Express
Coding under “Special Notes” at the end of this
section.
STEP 1: First, press and hold the “+” button.
The RED LED will turn on.
Next, while continuing to
hole the “+” button, press
and hold the “-” button.
Continue to hold both the
“+” and “-” buttons until
Step 1
the LED starts to blink (approximately 5 seconds).
When the LED starts to blink IMMEDIATELY
release both the “+” and “-” buttons. The LED will
blink two times and then remain on to confirm
programming mode.
STEP 2: While the LED is
on, press and release the
button you wish to code. The
LED will blink once and then
remain on.
Step 2
STEP 3: Using the
operation buttons on the
front of the transmitter,
enter a 9-digit random code.
Every time a button is pressed
the LED will turn off and on.
Step 3
After the 9-digit code is
entered, the LED will blink twice to confirm a valid code
and remain off.
SPECIAL NOTE - EXPRESS CODING
• Allows you to code all three buttons with a
single coding process, follow Steps 1, 2, & 3
(previous) except:
Select the “+” button in Step 2
•
• End the entered code in Step 3 with the ninth

FOR MULTIPLE OPERATOR
INSTALLATIONS
First code all transmitters using EXPRESS
CODING (see above for directions)
Then use a single transmitter to teach the
operators the transmitter code
Recheck the antenna wire on the power head unit, for
proper operation the antenna wire should be
POINTED STRAIGHT DOWN toward the floor for
most situations.
Installing the Transmitter
The transmitter is supplied with a metal clip which
may be used to attach the unit to a sun visor. If the
clip is used, slide it
into the recess
provided on the
back of the
transmitter case
until the snaps on
the case fit around
the clip. If the
transmitter is
installed in a pocket in your car, follow all the
manufacturer’s instructions. Improper installation
may cause intermittent transmitter operation which
can result in unexpected door operations.
Battery Replacement
The MVP Quik-Code transmitter is provided with two
factory installed 3-volt batteries which should be replaced
after two years of normal use. The transmitter code is
retained in permanent memory and will not be lost during
battery replacement. To replace the batteries, remove the
back of the case using a quarter or your thumb. Carefully
slip the batteries out of the holders and replace with fresh
CR2032 3-volt batteries. The “+” on the batteries must
point away from the circuit board. Replace the back of the
cover and resume normal use.
TO PREVENT THE RISK OF PERSONAL
INJURY, DAMAGE TO DOOR OR
PROPERTY, ONLY OPERATE DOOR
CONTROLS WHEN DOOR IS IN CLEAR

FROM CHILDREN IN A SECURE AREA.
Radio Operational Check After programming your transmitter and the MVP receiver
power head unit, check the operation of your radio controls
by moving approximately 45 feet back from the garage
door, then press the appropriate transmitter button that has
been programmed for that door. The red LED light will
illuminate on the front face of the transmitter. This is your
indication that a signal has been generated and sent out by
the transmitter (provided a valid programming sequence
has been done with the transmitter). Operation at this
distance should be reliable. However, environmental
conditions and the location of the transmitter and receiver
antenna will affect distance.
• If the opener doesn’t activate check if the power head
unit has been programmed to accept the transmitter
signal. The red LED on the rear panel of the power
head unit will blink two times rapidly if it has accepted
a valid transmitter signal. If the LED light does not
blink reprogram the MVP power head unit to accept the
transmitter signal by following the instructions on the
bottom of the previous page “Programming the MVP
Receiver Power Head Unit” making sure you erase
any previously learned signal (see above).
• If the distance is inadequate check the battery and
replace if necessary and/or check the position of the
power head unit antenna (see above).
• To maximize the operating distance move the
transmitter to different locations in the car until a
satisfactory distance is achieved. Vanity mirrors on
sun visors will affect performance.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT INSTRUCTIONS
STEP 1: Testing the Limit Settings: To check the
Limit Settings, start the Opener by pushing the standard
wall Push Button or Super Station. Be prepared to
activate the button again quickly - per the Operating
Parameters outlined on page 12 - or if you see that the
door is going to over travel. As illustrated below, move
the Cams toward the Power Unit to DECREASE door
travel and toward the Front Idler to INCREASE door
travel. Adjust the Up Limit Cam so that the door
comes to rest where it normally would without an
electric Opener. Adjust the Down Limit Cam so that
the door closes firmly without putting undue stress on
the Door Arm. At full closed position, the door arm
assembly should compress approximately one inch.
