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

1 Answer

I push wall button and hear clicking but won't open

I have a Craftsman 1/2 HP that just stopped about1 ft from closing completely. Now when I press the wall button, all I get is a series of clicking but nothing happens. Also the light but clicks but lights won't come on. The "indicator light" (green) gives me a series of 5 flashes with a pause inbetween. I am getting power to the unit. Any help?

    I am having the same exact problem. Yesterday, I added a wireless keypad and last night all of my remotes, including the wall remote, were working fine. I went out this morning and opened the garage door with the wall remote and when I tried to close it with the remote in my car, It wouldn't work. Now nothing works, including the lights on the unit.

    I tried unplugging the unit hoping to "reset" it and plugging it back in....no luck, same problem.

Try unplugging the operator. This may reset any problems you had.

Make sure the brackets for the sensors are tight and the small light on the sensors is not blinking ever so slightly. You also might try shading the sensor so that the sun is not shining directly into the lens.

If the main light flashes 10 times when you try to close the door it is a sensor problem. Make sure they are not flickering ever so slightly and that they are not loose on their brackets. Tweak them a little bit.

Garage door will not close, moves 2 ft & returns


Make sure you put the black cup back onthe end of the motor shaft and that it is pressed all the way on.Make sure the RPM sensor is plugged in. If neither of these are theissue, then you probably did not have the motor shaft pushed all theway back when you tightened the coupler after replacing the wormgear. Loosen that coupler up and from the front of the motor(opposite end in which the coupler is on) push the shaft back as faras it will go. Hold it there while you tighten the coupler back upand then try it.

Programming kepad for Sears Craftsman Garagedoor opener 1/2 hp


The only procedure I have ever followed is to press the learn button and then enter the code, and not do anything else. I think your last step of holding the button until the light goes out is clearing codes as fast as you enter them. Just stop after you enter your code and let the learn mode time out on its own. That should do it.

And don't put your head through the wall. It just causes more headaches.

Garage door opened, won't close


If you can press and hold the wall button and the door will go down, you have a photo eye issue. Check the photo eyes at the bottom of the door.
