CHECK TO SEE IF THE LED ON THE WALL CONTROL IS FLASHING.

IF IT IS THE LOCK / VACATION SWITCH HAS BEEN ACTIVATED. THIS IS USSUALLY A SMALLER BUTTON ON THE WALL CONTROL OR A SMALL SWITCH ON THE WALL CONTROL.

WHEN THIS HAS BEEN SET TO UNLOCK THE UNIT, ALL OF YOUR REMOTE FUNTIONS SHOULD WORK.

Remotes quit working on Craftsman 53975 garage


It sounds like you have a logic board problem. If your remotes work at all it is not a programming problem. You could pull the logic board and check for loose connections especially around the small transformer. 18 years for an opener is very lucky. Their average life is about 1/2 that.

I have a sears garage door opener with two openers and one code remote (mounted outside of the garage). I had to replace a battery in one of the openers and when I went to reset it I accidentally reset all...


Keep the remote that works with the keypad and replace the other remote with one of the same model. This is a common problem and the only cure is replacement.

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.

Remote works only when Garage Door Opener light is OFF


I discovered that certain light bulbs interfere with the remote sensors. Harware stores have clear vibration reisistant bulbs for garage doors, try them instead. After spending money on a new remote, resetting remotes, and weeks of aggravation...poof.....i found it was the type of bulb I was using. Used a clear bulb and the problem went away. Hope this helps.

Garage Master 1/3 HP 1997 Door Working, not responding to Remote


I have the exact same situation, except my model (139.53607) is older than yours and does not even have an LED. Remotes only works after after shop light goes off (5 minutes or so), but wall button works fine. Did call Sears Service and the tech told me the logic board is probably shot. Don't want to waste money on service call so I'll probably have to buy a completely new unit in the Spring and go through the winter without the use of a remote.
