    I've tried 2 new batteries. It won't seem to learn the new code for some reason.

    Craftsman multi-function keyless entry 139.53776 cannot reprogram with new opener Craftsman 139.53930DM

    Had to replace old Craftsman opener with a new one (2009) and thought that if replaced with new Craftsman, keyless entry unit code be reprogrammed to work with new opener. Instructions for the new opener describe the "Security+" opener as using a "rolling code transmitter". I'm assuming that the old keyless entry (1994) doesn't use a rolling code transmitter and therefore cannot be used?

As you may know by now there are keypads and then there are keypads. They must be made to work together as there are some that are not compatible. Posting your model numbers might help a little.

Ladies / Gentlemen: I have a Craftsman 139.53975SRT1 Garage Door Opener. What is the correct keyless entry pad for this opener? Will a 139.53876 keyless entry pad work with this opener? Thank You! ...

The correct keypad for your opener is 139.53684. The 53876 keypad is an older technology and will not work correctly. If you program it you will find your remotes no longer work and if you reprogram your remotes the keypad will not work.

My lift master security plus keyless entry pad for the garage door no longer will open the garage door when I key in the four digit code. Can I reprogram the entry pad and if sohow?thank you

You can try programming it but first make sure the battery is good. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

It is really important that you get the correct keypad for your opener. If you got the wrong one you will have the problem you describe. There is a possibility the remote is bad but the odds are against the keypad at this point.

You can go to this website and check out their advertisement. They say you can order any frequency. I would not order before talking to them. They list their phone number.

Sears craftsman keyless entry for model 139.53684

If I am correct, there is a green button on the opener. Hold that down until it stop blinki ng. Once it has, pres the opener. It should read the code and work the next time you hit the opener remote.
If not, sorry. This has worked for me
