Remote Programming Instructions for Marantec M4500 and M4700 Openers
Programming a remote for a Marantec opener can be difficult without instructions. Below are instructions on programming a garage door remote to the Marantec model M4500 and model M4700 garage door openers. We will go through each step you need to do in order to program the Marantec remote to your Marantec opener. You'll only use the instructions if you don't have any other remotes programmed to the operator. The reason for this is because the Marantec opener radio receiver can only hold the code of one remote. Additional remotes copy the code of the one programmed remote so if you already have a remote that works with the opener then you should watch our video on transferring a code from one remote to another.

transmitter, press and release the "P" button. This stores the
code in memory. It also completes the adjustment setting
sequence, and completes the program process. The LEDs will
automatically fade out in a circular pattern, which indicates that
the program mode is complete.
