Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! This is James, I'm an appliance repair technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today

Sorry to hear your appliance is having issues, please stand by while I find the answer for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.
What is the model number of your gate control box, I ask as there are many models and that changes the location of the learn button?

Expert:  James replied 19 days ago.

Without the information requested I can only provide generic advice at this stage, but happy to elaborate once you provide the addition info.
For now I hope you may find this initial guidance useful.

The learn button is normally yellow on most of the ranges, and located on the PCB, there are a few different types but if you remove the case of the gate controller you should see the yellow button and often marked learn above it.

A couple of different PCB showing the yellow learn button can be found here and here.

You will find the process for learning a remote here.
