It took a few minutes, but I figured it out. At the bottom of the keypad is a small half round hole. Insert a punch or anything small enough to fit in the hole. Press up, while prying out the bottom of the cover. I have a Liftmaster door with a wireless keypad. If you have the same pad this should work.

I had the same problem and just used the the teeny weeny Phillips-head screwdriver for fixing eyeglasses in that tiny hole. Popped off easily!

Re: garage door opener . i recently replaced the battery in my craftsman wireless keypad now the code doesnt work and i cant get the door open to press the reset button. how do i fix


Changing the battery wouldn't have caused the keypad to quit. You must have had a problem before the battery change. If you have a vault door. That is one with no other way to enter you will have to call a door technician. They can drill a hole in the door, use a special tool to pull the release and then install a keyed release in the hole they drilled.

My lift master security plus keyless entry pad for the garage door no longer will open the garage door when I key in the four digit code. Can I reprogram the entry pad and if sohow?thank you


You can try programming it but first make sure the battery is good. 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 your keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

I need to reprogram my chamberlain security plus keypad model 940CB/67LM. I tried and failed now can't get it to work. Can you please help?


Make sure the battery is good and it is the correct model for your opener.

On the rear of the opener near where all those white wires are you will find the smart/learn button. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter. If this doesn't work you have a bad keypad.

Two codes open door


You must hold that red button in for 6 seconds to erase the memory. Just remember you will have to program your hand remotes plus the wireless keypad.

Wireless keypad will close door but open


WHEN YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM THE UNIT.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD KEYPAD.
