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

1 Answer

Need to match DIP switchs on a universal garage door remote

Need to match to an older 315 freq. Mastercraft Trac Drive (I think it's a Genie) opener that uses 12 punch out switches (none punched out). My universal remote is a Clicker model KLIK1C. When I put all the DIP switches on the universal remote into the ON position (I assume that's what I need to do to match the Mastercraft one, since all the punch outs look intact) and press the new remote button 13 times (as indicated for a 12 position Genie remote in the instructions) the door doesn't respond.

    Yes. It says freq.

    Sorry - Yes. It says freq. 315 on the back of the Mastercraft remote

    I really don't want to buy a new set. I use the Clicker for one garage door and it was easy to program and use. I'd like to use it for another door, but the opener on that door (the Mastercraft unit) is older. I'm not sure how old.

I have a Sears Model 139.53879 (3-Function Remote Control) garage door opener. It's about 12 years old. The remote controls open the door fine but the remotes do not close the door; it has to be closed...


Sounds like a problem with the safety photocells, to confirm locate the where the safety input is on the opener and bridge out the terminals ( not the supply voltage terminals) if the door then closes the photocells are the problem.

Genie model ACSD1G will not program to Linear door opener model # LD033.-- need help doing this.


Most of the time, keypads and remotes are not compatible with other manufacturers. You would be better off getting a universal keypad, which should work. Double check the older opener to make sure it is on the list of compatible devices.

Also, make sure you check the balance of your garage door periodically to make sure your springs are counter-balancing the garage door properly. If not, the lifespan of the garage door opener will be substantially shortened. Click here for a how-to video.

I have new Genie 9-12 remote for garage door opener and I do not know my old security code


The code for the opener is on a dip switch set under the light bulb lens on the opener unit. Remove the lens and the switch set is usually located on the left as you look at it. It's either a 9 or 12 switch set. Match the numbered switches on both the remote and the receiver, and it should work! Oh, and make sure the battery is fresh.

Own late model 12hp Genie screw drive garage door opener and want to know where to locate the Learn Code Button.


It will be on the outer surface of the motor head, or under the light cover. It will be the only one you can press. Some older units have dip switches which look like a row of toggle switches. If so there will be no learn button. Thanks BB

Genie Compact 3-Button Remote control will only open 1 door/not 2


On some of the remotes you will find a toggle switch to change frequencies, this might help. Note all new openers are operating on a different frequency than slightly older ones due to military interference. Even though both might be intellicode they might not work together on the same remote. Sometimes some openers are harder to program than others. So lets try to program the harder one. You need to find and press the learn button on the motor head. Then press the button on the remote once. The led light by the learn button should not flash. If so try it over. The light should either stay lit or go out after the first press. If it does press it again and then a third time. If it ever flashes during the program process try again. The third or fourth time the motor should operate. If not you either have a bad remote or more than likely a bed logic board. Thanks BB

2 different openers stopped working by remote at the same time


Both the older genie and a newer chamberlain (3-4 yrs old) both run on 390Mhz frequency. sounds like you will have to change your receivers on both operators (365LM 315Mhz) then get 3 button remote so you can program both doors on one remote.
