SOURCE: My Craftsman 53684 keyless won't work with my Craftsman 53930DM.

I've never seen the first set of steps you mention. You always need to press the "learn" button first so the opener will be in the mode to capture the new code. As far as I know it is not necessary to hold the Enter button on the keypad (at least I never have). While the "learn" LED is lit on the opener, just key in the new code and press Enter.

Maybe you should try clearing the receiver first by pressing the "learn" button and holding it until the LED either goes out or starts flashing (depends on model). Then try reprogramming. Maybe the little computer is confused.

Sounds like you have a bad logic board.

SOURCE: Garage opener only opens with remote underneath the unit.

Here are some things to check. Some of this pertains to your problem and some doesn't.

Limited range of your remote controlscould be related to radio frequency interference that comes fromsomething in your home or in the surrounding environment. Certainelectrical devices can radiate interference; this could be almostanything that is plugged into an electrical outlet.

Please keep in mind that the device canbe brand new, or can be an item that has been in use for quite awhile. Also, the item may continue to function properly as far asyou are able to tell. The only problem with the item may be that ithas started to broadcast the interference, with no other symptomsnoted.

Some devices are more likely togenerate interference than others. This includes TV cable, cableamplifiers, surge protectors, fluorescent lights, battery chargingdevices (power tools, golf carts, etc.), anything that utilizes atimer (sprinkler systems, lights, alarm systems, etc.), and a myriadof others. If the problem seems sporadic, we can safely assume thatthe device responsible for the interference is only being operatedduring these times. Again, please keep in mind that the age of thedevice does not determine if it is capable of broadcasting unwantedinterference. Any electrical device can be the source of the problem.

The first step is replacing the batteryin your remote. If the range on your remote does not improve, removethe wall control wires from the overhead unit. If the range does notimprove you will likely need to replace the remote control. Afterreplacing the remote, or if you have other remotes programmed in tothe opener, and the range problem still exists, please proceed to thePower Down test.

Multiple garage doors:
If you have two garage door units andone is working just fine, you will need to start by unplugging thegood unit. This will help determine if the unit with no range startsto function properly. If the range comes back to the bad unit thenyou will need to replace the logic board on the unit that wasunplugged as it is emitting an RF signal that is over powering theother garage door opener. If the range does not improve after the“good” unit has been unplugged, replace the batteries and tryprogramming some additional remotes to determine if the existingremotes are the issue. If the extra remotes do not have any rangethen you would need to replace the receiver logic board in the “bad”unit.

Power Down test:
To isolate potential sources ofinterference, turn the circuit breaker off to the garage and plug thegarage door opener into an extension cord from another room. If therange improves, then the interference is coming from a device in thegarage. If no improvement is seen follow the same procedure, thistime turning off the circuit breakers to your home, with theexception of the garage and test the remote controls. If improvementis noted, turn the circuit breakers back on, one by one, until therange problem resurfaces. This will allow you to narrow down whatroom the problem device is in. You will have to go from there toisolate it further, by unplugging and re-plugging the items in thatroom.

If you are unable to determine anysource of interference, then the receiver logic board in the overheadunit will need to be replaced.

Can't get the can top off my one touch can opener

If the top is completely off the can, it is just being held by the magnet. You can use a set of plyers to pull it off. If it is still attached to the can and the top magnet you could use a screw driver to pry up the magnet and pry away the can. If there is a mechanical lever to release the can use it as well.

I have the door bell style wall button-how do I unlock the unit so the remotes can be synched? I have pressed green button on back of unit with remotes but they won't operate the door.

You don't unlock anything to program the opener for the remotes. If everything is working you do this:

Press and hold the button down on the remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.

Wireless Key Remote door & trunk opener won't work with trunk anymore

When you press the trunk open button, do you hear any "release" noise come from the trunk area? The issue may be a bad battery in the key fob OR there could be an issue with the transmitter located inside the vehicle. Do the doors lock and unlock properly? is the vehicle equipped with security or immobilizer? please advise

Sounds like the receiver in your opener has quit working. Unless you break in you need to call a door technician. They can drill a hole in the door, use a special tool to pull the manual release and open the door. You should then have them install a keyed manual release if this ever happens again. They can also repair or replace your opener.

Release the door from the opener by pulling down on the rope. It will be very hard to pull. This should release the tension on the chain but I think you need professional help with this opener. It sounds like it is badly out of adjustment. The chain coming off is an indication of a worn bearing that will have to be replaced.
