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

1 Answer

Keypad will close door, but not open it!

Hi -- our garage door opener works. The keypad does not. That is, sometimes, when you press enter, it will open, even if you entered the code awhile ago. We cannot get it to open the door -- ever though.

Any thoughts?

Try changing the battery and reprogam the keypad. The code remains active for about 30 sec. after it is entered into the keypad which allows you to press enter to change direction of the door

Chamberlain whisper drive code change keypad


Usually, that is a feature built into the keypad itself for convenience and cannot be changed.. When the door is closed, the keypad should go inactive after 15-30 seconds - requiring you to enter the code again to open.

Liftmaster security+ - enter code on keypad and background light blinks and door won't open. How do I get door to open?


Try programming it by pressing and immediately releasing the smart/learn button and then walking over to the keypad and keying in your four digit code and press enter. If this doesn't work your keypad is bad.

Can enter code on keypad to lower garage door, however keypad just "flashes" when code is entered to raise door


If your other remotes are working normally I would suspect first of all a weak battery in the keypad. Secondly the keypad could be getting weak and the closed door blocks enough of the signal to cause your problem. An open door lets the signal through. Normally during the time the keypad is flashing you can hit 'enter' again to reverse the door if it is closing or stop the door if it is opening.

Keypad only works when closing door


MANY OF THE NEWER UNITS WILL CLOSE FROM THE KEYPAD WITHOUT PRESSING THE CODE - OR USING THE WRONG CODE.

WHEN YOU REPLACE THE BATTERY YOU MUST REPROGRAM THE KEYLESS TO THE OPENER.

HOPE THIS HELPS
