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

1 Answer

Both openers stopped working at the same time but they are both plugged in to an outlet that still has power. The lights are out on the opener wall switches. Wife thought she smelled electrical smoke when she accedently pushed both buttons at the same time. That shouldn't matter. How could two seperate machines go out at the same time? Is there a reset button on the openers that I don't know about?

What openers? Sears/liftmaster of last 2 years have no reset. Sure power to outlet? Try a lamp. Did a gfi trip. Did wife run both doors to overheat them. they should cool off in 15 minutes. Do you have a surge protector. Did it go bad. Some kill power when they get cooked. Did you have a lightning storm. Culd have cooked logic boards.

I have a HSS25GFTACC it just stop running.


does the inside light come on when you open it? That'd clear the outlet and power cord. With that model, a faulty defrost timer will stop the compressor and all cooling to allow the defrost cycle to work. I'd check that next along with the thermostat setting and contacts.

My ge spectra stove stopped working after using the microwave


Is this an electric range? If so try reseting the breaker again. It sounds like you lost one leg of your 220 volts.

My Lasko Pedestal fan just stopped working completely


Its probably something simple, plug it into another outlet and make sure that outlet work also, if that dont work it will be in the control switch and i doubt the motor is burnt up. You can take srew driver and open up the control cover to see if there a fuse and check the wiring connection from the outlet to the control switch and make sure the fan is unplug before you open up the cover. Jiggle the wire inside the control unit than press and play with the button couple of time and plug it back into the outlet and see that will work. if not than have somone test the the motor with a volt meter making sure the motor still good. I believe it be more likely in the control swith unit. hope that work for ya

Vacuum is not turning on


Try a ruling out a couple of things first before opening up the handle:

1) First lets make sure your outlet has power
a) can you plug anything else in and have it work?
b) is the vacuum plugged into a non-switched outlet?
c) will the vacuum work from a different outlet - in a different room?

2) Check the plug. Are the prongs loose? If so, you'll need to cut the
plug off, splice back the two wires (Black and White), then connect
to a new plug. You can get a new plug for $1-2.00 at any hardware
store.

3) Time to open up the handle:
a) sometimes the wires connected to the switch can become loose
and fall off. if that is the case just reconnect by plugging them
back onto the switch. You may also consider using pliers to
compress the connector onto the switch terminal.

Hope this helps!

Plugged 4w 120v trimmer into 220v outlet with a 50-2000w 220-110v coverter - it blew fuse and doesn't work. soldering melted off wire inside


scrap the trimmer...
probablly damaged beyond cost of new one

a step down transformer would have been a better choice than a voltage converter ( not trying to be a wise guy here)..

Remotes don't work


I recently had Verizon FIOS equipment installed in my garage (for phone, internet and TV), which is plugged into a 110 volt electrical outlet. Thinking this equipment might be causing some RF interference, I unplugged the FIOS equipment, and both garage door openers immediately worked perfectly again!
After reconnecting the FIOS equipment, I then plugged the garage door opener into a different electrical outlet approximately 15 ft. away via an extension cord, and the openers continue to work fine. Fingers crossed, I hope the issue is permanently resolved.
