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

1 Answer

Remote works if the btton is held down only.

I have a Sears Craftman 3/4 hp Garage door opener. We have a remote in each of the cars and in the garage by the entry door. When we activate the remote the door will open 1/4 of the way, sometimes half the way, or not at all. It seems when I hold down on the continually, the door will open and close. If the remote is just paushed then that;s when we have the problems.

Any help or comments to fix this problem would be graetly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Where to buy remote control and reset My garage door opener also


To erase the memory of the opener so that your old remote will no longer work you need to locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and hold this button for 6 seconds. No remotes will now work.

To program the new remote when you get it, hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button.

Call any local door opener repair company from the yellow pages and you should be able to buy a remote from them.

If the main light is flashing 10 times when the door reverses it is a door sensor problem. One may have been bumped so that they no longer point at one another. Make sure the small light on each sensor is lit and not flickering. If this isn't the case you might need to increase the down force a little. The control is on the back panel near where all those white wires go. Increase it about 1/4 turn and try.

Craftman 1/3 garage door remote does not open garage


Try another remote to see if it is just the remote or maybe the receiver on the logic board. Check to see if the wall control works and is not in the vacation mode. More information would sure help.

Craftman Garage Door Opener Quit Working.


It could be a bad logic board especially if you have had any electrical storms in the area. I would remove and check the logic board for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board.

I CAN NOT PROGRAM MY BUILT IN CAR REMOTE ON MY NEW 139.53985DM


didnt try everything cause if you did, it would work! Get two people and garage door opener. One read manual from car under Garage door" or Homelink while other pushes button. When manual says if this did not work or if you have security plus or rolling code, continue with other instructions. You will need a working remote and will need to pushh learn button on motor logic board.
