Question about Home Security

Open Question

I have a Chamberlain 701WHC GDO. I want to buy a digital keypad opener. All the universal key pad openers are for models manufactured after early 2000s. Is there a remote digital Key pad opener still available? This model has a 1991 manufacture date but stii works perfectly.

SOURCE: Garage Door Key Pad

Assuming, from what I read, the remote works..The inside switch is just a doorbell switch which will wear out or have the contacts get bent or dirty. Take off wall, and change for new one or see if the contacts can be cleaned or adjusted. If the pad is electronic (coded) the wires may be bad or the control defective. Usually momentary contact of the two wires will cause the door to actuate.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model and a LiftMaster Chamberlain Professional Garage Door


I had the same frustrating dilemma with my Craftsman LiftMaster garage door and Keypad, Model 139.53754-01 (dated 10/06; and has the # 315 MHz).

To resolve “the dilemma”, grab your keypad, climb up on a ladder to access the garage door opener’s motor unit. On the right side of the motor unit, remove the white plastic casing by pressing buttons on each side and pulling down. This will expose the programming area, and for our purposes, the “Learn” button.

1. On the motor unit, press and release the “Learn” button. The Learn indicator light will glow steadily for 30 seconds.

2. Within 30 seconds, enter a four digit personal identification number (PIN) of your choice on the keypad. Then press and hold the ENTER button.

3. Release the ENTER button when the motor unit lights blink. The code has been “learned”/stored/activated.

Good Luck, and I Hope this Helps!
For possible future reference:

How to change an existing, known PIN
(Changing an existing PIN can be done with the wireless remote keypad, and does not require access of the motor unit.)

From the keypad:

1. Enter the four digits of the present PIN, then press and hold the # button. The opener light will blink twice. Release the # button.

2. Enter your new 4-digit PIN and press Enter. The motor unit lights will blink once when the PIN has been “learned”/stored/activated. Test by entering the new PIN, and pressing Enter.

SOURCE: key pad won't operate opener

Check to make shure the battery from the second unit is good because it was stored for a period of time ,make shure it,s installed correctly . and after installing battery press any of the buttons you should see the keyboard light up , if you have a hard time seeing it because of the daylight just cup your hand,s around the display ! If that is all good then before installing the keypad on the outside jam ,go to the machine and locate the srt button or the smart button , after you located it just press it once and the yellow indicator light will turn solid , at this time you can program 4 digits into the keypad and hit the enter button on the keypad , At this point after pressing and holding the enter button ,you will see the machines lightbulb turn on and off once , that is telling you that the machine has just accepted the code ,for your other machine do not use the same code because the two doors will open togeter for example 1234 enter.................2nd machine 1235 enter you should have no problem programming the machines , theese are the easiest machines to programm and only take litteraly a few swconds each takes me less then 5 seconds to do each ! also another way to check if your keypad is sending a signal back to the machine is find the srt button or the smart button (,they are the same button) look at the yellow indicator light next to it and then press the enter button and hold it down on the keypad you will see the light on the machine blinking rapidly , That is telling you that the machine is recieving a signal ! Good luck and hope this helps you , if your keypad still don,t work bring it back to sears for a replacement , sincerely Glenn

Chamberlain key pads won't work with a genie receiver.

You will need to echange it for a Genie brand.
Also be sure what frequency your Genie is - They have changed the frequency a couple of years ago.

Tried to reprogram security code for outdoor key pad on 1/2hp craftsman garage door opener according to instructions online, pressed learn button- put in new 4 digit code-held enter. Lights did not flash...

Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

Have a clicker keyless entry with 4 diget code from old opener. klik2 and have new chamblerlin opener model 248735s want to program clicker to open garage door opener need instrustions i can print up

Often times, keypads and remotes are not compatible with newer models, even with the same manufacturer. If you are still interested in finding an instruction manual, try the Chamberlain website. You can also purchase a Universal Keypad, which will work with most models.

I have a Lift Master wireless touch pad but a Chamberlain garage door opener. How Do I change the frequency so the touch pad works?

You can't change the frequency but you can try programming.

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

If this doesn't work then the keypad is bad or it is not the proper model for your opener.

My clicker wireless keyless keypad won't open my liftmaster garage door

First, check the battery inside the keyless entry. It may have died and that is the whole problem. Replace it if necessary. If it has never been replaced previously, you might want to do that now anyway..
On the GDO there is a "smart" button located by where the wires are connected.
Press and release the smart button. Enter your code slowly and press enter. The light on the GDO should flash off and on to let you know the GDO has memorized the code.
Good Luck..

OLD garage door opener

Sounds like you have the keypad that is hardwired.

To program the keypad, first unplug the garage door opener from the electrical outlet. Next, remove the nameplate from the console that the keypad plugs into and locate the program/operate switch. Flip the switch to program. Next, enter your desired four-digit PIN into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed.

These instructions may not work if the keypad is some other manufacturers.
