Remote Programming Instructions for Marantec M4500 and M4700 Openers

Marantec M4500 Opener
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.

Here's a rundown on how to program a remote into a M4500 or M4700 Marantec opener by using the buttons on the opener powerhead (motor unit) mounted on the ceiling:

You will program the remote into the opener by using the "+", "-", and "P" buttons on the opener powerhead. If you look up at the powerhead you should see 8 numbered red LED lights. You should also see 3 red buttons: "+" button, "-" button and "P" button. Here is a diagram of what the buttons and lights look like:

To Program A Remote:
  • Press and hold the "P" button for approximately 2 seconds. When
    all LEDs illuminate and LED #2 begins to blink, release the button.
    You are now ready to set or change the desired adjustment.
  • Press and release the "P" button until the #7 LED is illuminated
  • LED #7 should be blinking. The opener can now learn the code
    of the hand-held transmitter. While LED#7 is blinking, press and
    hold the button on the transmitter
  • When you see LED #7 flashing rapidly, you can release the transmitter button. The
    opener has now learned the particular code of this transmitter
  • Once the opener has successfully received the code from the
    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.
  • LED #8 should now be illuminated, and the opener is ready for
That's how you program a remote to a Marantec M4500 or M4700 garage door opener. If you have additional remotes you want to program then watch the video linked above.
