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

1 Answer

Wireless Keypad wont allow use of other door openers

I have a craftsman wireless keyless entry pad model number 139.53876 which works fine when programmed. However whenever it is programmed it does not allow use of the other remotes to open the garage door. Is there a setting or something to change to allow use of the keypad and remotes together?

    I have what I think is the same problem. I have found that I can choose one or the other. I can reset the codes for the opener and then choose whether I use my remotes to open the door or the keypad. If I choose to program a remote first, both remotes work just fine, however the keypad will no longer work. If I choose to program the keypad first, it works great, but neither of my remotes will work.

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.

If the following instructions don't work and you have a good battery the keypad has failed.

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 your 4 digit code and press enter.

Either the keypad is the wrong model for your opener or it has reverted to an earlier technology and needs to be replaced. It is important that you get the model number off your motor unit so you can be sure you get the right keypad for your opener.

Reset Craftsman keyless entry pad.


What you are asking for is not possible. You need to call a garage door repair technician. They will drill a hole through the door and using a special tool can pull the rope to release the door.
