Old garage door opener remotes for Tiltamatic, Parker and Windsor brands

These remotes are still incredibly common and this is a testament to the quality of the garage door openers. With these openers generally a replacement remote is sufficient as the unit itself is generally in perfect working order.

We have replacement remotes for all of these models available ex stock, please see the pictures below to identify the correct model for your unit.

Obsolete ATA and Elsema old garage door opener remote

With old style Elsema and ATA remotes we have two different styles. The first of these varieties is the common ATA GDO2 style remotes and the Elsema FMT style remotes.

Both of these remotes can be replaced by an easy to program dipswitch remote. The next variety is the older ATA TX4A remote, this model is now replaced by a receiver board which comes with brand new PTX5 style remote. This receiver board can be added to any old style ATA opener to allow it to be programmed with brand new remotes.

Old garage door opener remote for Merlin garage doors

We have many different solutions for older and hard to find Merlin remotes. Some remotes are replaceable by current models such as the M800 and 2100 remotes, these are replaced by the M802 blue merlin visor remote.

Other models such as the M2500L, M1000 and M2000 powerlift models we can replace by cloning an existing remote which is still in working condition.

If no remaining remotes are working on a Merlin opener we have an easy to install receiver kit, this kit comes with one new style Merlin m842 remote and comes ready to plug straight into your garage motor.

I have bought a house with a Merlin Model 2000 Powerlift garage door opener. Unfortunately the remote opener that was left has stopped working. It appears that a very small piece of grit got in the button area which stopped it turning off. After the unit was cleaned out it stopped working although the unit still lights up when the button is pressed. I am presuming that somehow the settings have been changed when it was opened. My query is can this unit be cloned to operate again? If not will a replacement unit m842 be available? Your support would be appreciated.
