  • Disconnect operator power before any installation or repair
  • Always wear safety glasses

Your Digi-Code radio controls are designed specifically to remotely control from within an automobile and to give years of trouble free service without adjustment. Because all radio controls are set with the even numbered switches in the "ON" position when they leave the factory, it is recommended that a different code be selected and set at the time of installation. Please refer to the "Setting the Code Switch" section for instructions. The radio frequency (RF) portion of the controls, however , are tuned to standard frequencies and are thoroughly tested at the factory. This permits the addition or replacement of either the transmitter or the receiver by specifying the Model number and the RF frequency designated on the identification label. RF adjustments are not needed nor should any be attempted.



The receiver is designed to mount directly to the operator. It can be remotely installed if the operator terminal strip is not assessable, or if the power for the receiver is not obtainable from the operator. To direct mount the receiver, simply loosen the terminal screws on the operator and insert the two-way lugs from the receiver under the screws along the wall button wires, and tighten the screws.

Place the antenna (a10 in black wire) in a vertical position as far from any metal as possible.

Operator Terminal are as follows:

  1. Common - to wall button
  2. Relay - to wall button
  3. 24 Radio Power

For remote installation the receiver may be mounted near the operator head on a joist or the ceiling by using the mounting tab. Order Model 5192-06 Adapter, which permits connection between the operator terminal and the two-way lugs on the receiver.

Connect wires as follows:

  1. White wire to terminal "1" or common
  2. Black wire to terminal "2" or Relay
  3. Red Wire to terminal "3" or 24V Radio
  4. Connect push button wires to terminal '1" and "2"



Use your finger to slide the "code switch hatch" from the receiver for access to the code switch. On the transmitter the entire front lower half of the case ("the battery hatch") is removable. Use a coin or the curved end of the visor clip to disengage the lower half of the transmitter front. This will expose both the code switch and the battery compartment.


The models 5040, 5042, 5070 & 5072 mini transmitter cases are made up of two halves which are held together by a small Phillips head screw. Removing this screw will allow access to the code switches and the battery compartment.

Model 5010/5010 (300 MHz) or 5012/5013 (310 MHz)

Set both the code switches to the code of your choice, being sure both are set the same since a different setting of just one switch will prevent operation. The digital code is determined by the position of the 10 small switches numbered 1 through 10 located in the receiver and the transmitter. Any combination of "ON" or "OFF" positions can be selected by using a pencil or a pen. (NOTE: the switches are in the "ON" position when the switch is depressed toward the number.)

Once the codes have been set, check operation and reinsert the hatches.



Set the transmitter code switch to match the switches already set on the back of the garage door opener.

Once the codes have been set, check operation and reassemble products.



Replacement of battery in the transmitter can be changed by removing the front half of the transmitter. Use a coin or the curved end of the visor clip to disengage the lower half of the transmitter front. This will expose the battery compartment. Replacement battery must be a 9-volt.


A replacement or new transmitter or receiver may be purchased by specifying the Model Number and the RF frequency designated on the serial tag label. The RF frequency is set at the factory and must not be adjusted. The digital code can be matched to the companion receiver or transmitter by following the "set-" procedures above.


To check operation, move back about 50 feet and press the transmitter button. Operation should be reliable at a distance but environment and location or both the transmitter and receiver will effect the range. Try different mounting locations and positions in the vehicle. If operation is still undesirable, the problem may be tested by:

  • Checking the door operator. If the door will not open when the wall button is pressed, the problem is likely to be the operator. If the door will open by pressing the wall button, but not when the remote control button is pressed, the problem is probably in the radios.
  • Replacing the transmitter battery.

After performing the above operational checks, the controls still do not function, the should be returned to the dealer for repair or replacement.
