Remote to garage door opener wont work no solution on fixya

The opener is old enough to be in the Smithsonian! I live in my Grandmother's old house. My father said the original remote never worked right. I bought a Clicker brand model klkik1u and can't get it to work ether. The model number or the Sears Craftsman opener is 41A3066 the remoter model is 139.53718
the old remote is a nine position dip switch 7,8,9 are sitting in the middle, not off or on. they are that way on the old remote and the unit itself.
The opener works just fine when you use the wall mounted switch.
And yes...I have tried replacing the batteries.

The Clicker is a hard one to program. You might try it a couple more times to be sure it won't work.
The 61LM is the Liftmaster remote that goes with that unit. There is a possiblity that the reciever on the board is bad. That board is no longer available but you can get a 635LM external reciever that is backward compatable with the 61LM remote.

I purchase a new garage door opener and my old remotes wont work with it I have 4 old remotes


If it came with its own remote (probably), then you'll have to use the new remote with it - they're all keyed to individual garage door openers, as it should be; otherwise, anyone could use any old remote to open your garage door.

Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

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 the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

Pull the logic board and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit. I would guess at an estimate of $125.00 but don't even know where you live.

On the remotes put switch #1 in either position and match up switches 2 through 10 to the dipswitches on the motor unit. There is a good possibility your receiver has quit working.
