Chamberlain CLT1D Remote Problems

Programmed garage door openers with this remote. Openers are Chamberlain brand and I believe had to push button 11 times to program code. Openers are the same and have a learn button. I had to reverse all dip switches in remote to program 2nd door otherwise both doors operated at the same time with each button. Problem is that the doors now raise and lower "on their own". Could be someone else's remote in the area, I guess. How can I reprogram mine to avoid this.

Its very possible for someone esle to have your code I would say try two things. The first thing is too check your wall button wire shake it is a little make sure there are not cuts or staples in the wire its self cause it to short out and run. Then change your codes is pretty easy on the back of the opener unit its self there are the dip switchs you will most likly need a step stool. Just move 2 or so of the dip switchs and then move the same ones on your remote. On your remote the dip switchs should be undernether the batter cover

How to progam a sears electrontc add on garage door opener to in car hand ld transmiter


First you have to make sure you have the correct transmitter (remote). Each year Chamberlain Group (who makes the Sears Brand Openers) changes their technology and the learn button colors change, which means the remotes change. They are not all compatible. You can get the current 895MAX Remote and it is downward compatible for all of the openers. If you have the correct remote, you should be able to press the learn button, then one of the buttons on the remote and it should program. If not, you probably have an incompatible remote.

Hello there,
It actually depends on what you are trying to program. And these instructions apply only to openers that do not have dip switches on them.
Remotes: push don't hold the colored learn code button all models have different colors. After pushing the button hold the remote behind your back and push it three times. On the third time the door should run.
Keyless Entry: Program the code you want into the keyless. Push the colored learn code button and then enter the code and push enter three times slowly. on the third time the door should run.
Home-Link. Hold the two outer buttons until the blinking pattern changes. Then hold the button you wish to program and point and click your remote at it. Push the colored learn code button and push the homelink button three times.
There are two models of the Wireless Keyless Entry System, the 740CB and the 940CB. The 940CB is for use only with Security+® garage door openers having an orange/red smart/learn button. The 740CB will work with all openers manufactured since 1990 that have a yellow, white, gray, or green smart/learn button. It will not work with Security+® openers.
To program the keyless entry, first locate the smart/learn button. On our chain drive models, this button is on the end farthest from the door. On our belt and screw drive models, it is on the right side as you face the door from the opener. You simply press and release the smart/learn button. You now have 30 seconds to enter your four digit PIN number into the keypad and hold the enter button for five seconds. Wait one minute and test the keyless entry by entering your four-digit PIN number and pressing enter.
With some Security+® models, you can also program your Model 940CB Wireless Keyless Entry without climbing a ladder, right from your Multi-Function Control Panel. Simply enter your pre-selected code and press and hold the enter button on your Keyless Entry. Then press and hold the light button and the pushbutton on your Multi-Function Control Panel. The garage door opener lights will flash to confirm that the Keyless Entry has been successfully programmed.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. All the best my dear friend. Elect_Comp

I have a 3 stall garage with two garage doors, we also have 3 garage door openers. When I push the button on one opener both doors open or close. How can I fix this?


You will need to clear the memory of both openers by holding the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds. After doing this none of your remotes will work but your wall control will. Now you need to program the openers making sure you don't program any remotes for both doors.

Can only program one remote


You have a remote or keypad that has reverted to an earlier technology. You need to eliminate the bad unit and the others will program. Sears is made by Chamberlain which also makes Liftmaster and several privately branded openers.
