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.

    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.

    you sure older is 315; not 390.

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.

I have a sears model # 139.655000. The remotes have 9 dip switches. I need the transmission frequency so I can match up the right replacement remote.

Your opener is very old and I'm positive you can no longer get the remotes. You might look into one of these.

Craftsman - Model #00953751000

It is a universal remote and receiver that operates on the new frequency and has the rolling code feature.

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.
