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

1 Answer

Opener operates on its own sometimes

Hi. I have a craftsman 1/2 that's about 15 years old. On a couple occasions it started operating on its own. Nobody was in the garage at the time and so nothing got pushed. I also had it not function at all recently. My daughter had just come home from work and opened the garage door without a problem and closed it behind her. Shortly after that we needed to go back out through the garage. Well the opener wouldn't operate. Thought maybe there might be a problem with the master control and so I took the remote out of my truck and tried that. Still didn't work. We went out through the front door and did what we needed outside. As we got ready to go back inside my daughter decided to try the remote in her car. Which was parked outside the garage at the time. Well the opener started working. I'd appreciate any help that you can give me.

Maybe a short in wall wiring is causing motor to overheat and shut down for 15 minutes. try disconnecting wiring to wall pushbuttons and see what happens.

Hi, I have a craftsman 25cc weed wreck. always starts in first time(cold) then couldn't start second time; If starts in first time, after 2-3 minutes (engine warms up) engine automatic stops.


the warmth to the carburetor will cause dirt to expand inside causing this to happen. Usually after 2 to 3 years these caburetors are no longer good to use. A new one will be better to have to run your trimmer
Walbro makes these caburetors and nobody likes to service them for their size is small and the cost is far cheaper to replace than fix

I think you are saying that normal incandescent bulbs do not work. If that is correct you should unplug the unit and using a small screwdriver reach into the socket and pull out slightly on the center contact.
