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

1 Answer

Keypad only works when closing door

My keypad now will only work when closing my garage door. I replaced the battery and made sure the door lock was not on. When I try to open the door from the keypad it flashes for about 10-15 seconds but does not open the door. Any solutions?

MANY OF THE NEWER UNITS WILL CLOSE FROM THE KEYPAD WITHOUT PRESSING THE CODE - OR USING THE WRONG CODE.

WHEN YOU REPLACE THE BATTERY YOU MUST REPROGRAM THE KEYLESS TO THE OPENER.

When I leave the garage, I can use the keypad to close the door.......but when I return and try to open the door with the keypad....it won't open.


Make sure the battery is good. A weak battery can cause this problem. If that is not the case and your other remote units work your keypad may be going bad and need to be replaced.

Sounds like it has lost signal strength and the door cuts it down to the point that the receiver never gets the signal when the door is in the way. If it did that before you replaced the battery then you will have to replace the keypad.

I would make sure the battery contacts are clean and not corroded. Otherwise a new keypad is most likely the answer. Just FYI the keypad will still work when the wall control is locked.

Remote Control closes garage door but does not open


It sounds like a case of your keypad losing signal strength enough that it cannot transmit through the closed door. If a new battery doesn't do the job a new keypad will.

Liftmaster wireless keypad closes but won't open the door


If you are sure the battery is good you have a bad keypad. The signal strength is so weak it will not penetrate the door.

Wireless keypad will close door but open


WHEN YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM THE UNIT.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD KEYPAD.
