Garage Door Opener Remote: Transferring Code To A New One ?

Hello:
Have lost one of our garage door openers, but do have another one that wife uses.
Have no idea what brand the opener is; nothing on remote.
Is there a "generic" remote we can buy from somewhere, and somehow transfer the code from the one we do have to this new one ?
Or,... ?
Thanks, Bob

We have that "clicker" model, and the matching keypad. It works well with our old Stanley opener (Stanley GDO's are defunct, so there's on OEM parts anymore...)
You'll need to know what brand you have to program the clicker, though.

You need to know who makes the opener first - look at the opener (the motor end) there should be a make and model on the nameplate - you may have to remove the plastic housing.
Remotes are available at hardware places likes Home Depot, Lowes, Sears but you need to know the transmission frequency so your make and model of your opener would be essential in locating the right remote.

Fred is right, knowing the maker makes the job easier. Besides frequency, the newer openers use digital codes to secure your privacy. Codes can be many bits, and there might be a problem if the digital "word" is lacking the proper bit length. Without the manufacturer, you are lucky to hit it correctly in all aspects. I know that there are four frequency ranges alone that are used in openers, possibly more.
