    I have a different problem. After following the directions, the door can be opened and closed just by pressing enter. No security there!

On the garage opener that actually opens the door the one on the ceilling has a green or orange button that is called the learn button just press and release it you have 30 seconds to punch in a 4 digit code and when your done press and hold the enter button until the lights on the garage open blink once or twice then just press the code again and it will open the door press enter once to reverse the effect and and twice to stop the door completely.


Hope that helps

    I so want this to work... but it doesn't on my brand new opener. I have tried it a dozen times. I've reset the Learner (and had to reprogram my two transmitters, which did fine). The keypad just won't get learned... not lights blink on the opener. Any more thoughts, ideas on this? Thanks!

I have a craftsman garage door opener, of which I tried to program a new remote. but it did not program. in the event I accidently errased my keypad password. How can I reprogram the keypad, i cannot...


Hello there,
It actually depends on what you are trying to program. And these instructions apply only to openers that do not have dip switches on them.
Remotes: push don't hold the colored learn code button all models have different colors. After pushing the button hold the remote behind your back and push it three times. On the third time the door should run.
Keyless Entry: Program the code you want into the keyless. Push the colored learn code button and then enter the code and push enter three times slowly. on the third time the door should run.
Home-Link. Hold the two outer buttons until the blinking pattern changes. Then hold the button you wish to program and point and click your remote at it. Push the colored learn code button and push the homelink button three times.
There are two models of the Wireless Keyless Entry System, the 740CB and the 940CB. The 940CB is for use only with Security+® garage door openers having an orange/red smart/learn button. The 740CB will work with all openers manufactured since 1990 that have a yellow, white, gray, or green smart/learn button. It will not work with Security+® openers.
To program the keyless entry, first locate the smart/learn button. On our chain drive models, this button is on the end farthest from the door. On our belt and screw drive models, it is on the right side as you face the door from the opener. You simply press and release the smart/learn button. You now have 30 seconds to enter your four digit PIN number into the keypad and hold the enter button for five seconds. Wait one minute and test the keyless entry by entering your four-digit PIN number and pressing enter.
With some Security+® models, you can also program your Model 940CB Wireless Keyless Entry without climbing a ladder, right from your Multi-Function Control Panel. Simply enter your pre-selected code and press and hold the enter button on your Keyless Entry. Then press and hold the light button and the pushbutton on your Multi-Function Control Panel. The garage door opener lights will flash to confirm that the Keyless Entry has been successfully programmed.
Hope this helped you solve the problem. All the best my dear friend. Elect_Comp

Ladies / Gentlemen: I have a Craftsman 139.53975SRT1 Garage Door Opener. What is the correct keyless entry pad for this opener? Will a 139.53876 keyless entry pad work with this opener? Thank You! ...


The correct keypad for your opener is 139.53684. The 53876 keypad is an older technology and will not work correctly. If you program it you will find your remotes no longer work and if you reprogram your remotes the keypad will not work.

The Multi-Function Door Control works, but the Keyless Entry that is mounted on the outside of the garage does not.


If your hand held remotes still work and the batteries are good in the keypad then it has failed.

Garage door opener keypad stopped working. cannot reprogram it.


It could just be you need to replace the battery.
The warning light might be a "battery low" warning - advising you to replace it!
If it stops flashing, the battery has died altogether.
