Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

1 Answer

My Chamberlin remote garage door opener stopped working.

As stated above, my remote opener stopped working. I replaced the battery and it still does not work. I tried reprogramming it, still no good. I bought a new remote opener and tried programming it and that does not work either. My Chamberlin opener unit has a blue "learn" button and no external dip switches. The original opener does not have accessible dip switches but the new one does. These are accessible through the cover for the battery. The opener is less than a year old. The opener unit does work from the manual pushbutton mounted inside my garage.

I can't get my older garage door remotes to program with the new unit.Do I have to buy new remotes?


SORRY TO SAY.THE ANSWER IS YES.
THE NEW OPENERS ARE NOT ON THE SAME FREQUENCY.

YOU CAN PURCHASE REMOTES THAT WILL WORK WITH BOTH OLD AND NEW OPENERS (DUAL FREQUENCY).
BUT, OLD REMOTES WILL NOT WORK WITH THE NEW OPENERS.

Why wont my 3 remotes (hand held & factory in remote)only work to open the door ? They no longer work to open the door.I did replaced the batteries and reprogramed, craftsman 3/4hp chain drive


It could be that your door is binding on the way up and so it stops automatically. Try releasing the emergency pull cord and move the door up and down by hand to see if it is binding, probably near the bottom. The track may be misaligned or there could be something rubbing against the door.

SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE MAY HAVE PRESSED THE LOCK / VACATIONS SWITCH ON YOUR WALL CONTROL. IF STILL NOT WORKING AND THE LED IN THE WALL SWITCH IS NOT FLASHING TRY AGAIN TO PROGRAM YOUR REMOTES.

GOOD LUCK

ummm does the remote have good batteries in it (sorry have to ask) most remotes need good power to send signals any distance and sometimes the signal will reflect off shiny surfaces and confuse the remote..are you shooting thru a window? thats fogged up? moisture will cause a drop in signal clarity(to includ the car windows and sheet metal as well. good luck and repost please..

2000 Avalon keyless remotes stopped working: solution Both keyless remotes for my 2000 Avalon stopped working. The batteries were good (I checked them with a volt-ohm meter). The Toyota dealer determined that the remote used most was defective and it tried to initialize the receiver in the car. This caused the second remote also not to work. The dealer reset the receiver (reinitialized it after first unplugging it), replaced the defective remote with a new one, and reprogrammed both remotes. Total cost: $225 labor, 164 for new remote. Later, another remote went bad. I just stopped using it.

Replaced battery and now remote doesn't work, do I have to reset the remote.


Yes. If the battery runs out, or you loose power to the opener for a period of time, you will have to reprogram the remote.

On the back of the opener motor you will find a 'learn button'. It may be under the plastic light cover, or in plain sight. It will either be green, orange, purple, or red. When you press the button an LED light just above the learn button will come on. Hold the remote near the opener and hold down the remote button. You should see the lights blink on and off a few times.

Try the remote. If this doesn't work try it again.

Good Luck!

Also, don't forget to check the balance of your garage door. This and other garage door maintenance tips can be found at www.spokanegaragerepair.com/tips_tricks.htm

Unplug the opener and remove the bulbs. Use a small screwdriver to pull out on the center contact in the socket. Make sure you are using standard bulbs.
