Press button to open garage door, doesnt work

Used release lever to disconnect gargage door. Tried to reconnect it automatically by simply pressing the button when I wanted to reconnect. It has worked in the past. Didnt work this time. Noticed that the chain had come off the sprocket. Loosened the chain and put chain back on sprocket. Tightened it up again. Unit attempted to work but was stuck somehow. I checked to ensure that there the cable and chain were not catching on anything. NO-Good. Then I disconnected the chain all together to see if the motor would turn freely. Hit the button, and gears spin temporarily then the unit starts clicking and stops., only goes on for a few seconds. ((( NOT SURE IF THERE IS AN ALLIGNMENT PROBLEM OR IF I WRENCHED SOMETHIN WITHIN THE HOUSEING. DONT EVEN KNOW HOW TO GO ABOUT TROUBLESHOOTING THIS)) HELP IS APPRECIATED.

I have a Craftsman keyless gargage door opener model 031D0431. We just moved in and would like directions on how to recode the keyless entry. One more question...if I recode the keyless entry, do I have...


Coding the keypad will not affect the remotes if you follow these directions.

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 a four digit code and press enter.

How do I change the code on our liftmaster 1/3 H.P. gargage opener


To program the keyless entry, first locate the smart/learn button. On the chain drive models, this button is on the end farthest from the door. On the belt and screw drive models, it is on the right side as you face the door from the opener. You simply press and release the smart/learn button. You now have 30 seconds to enter your four digit PIN number into the keypad and hold the enter button for five seconds. Wait one minute and test the keyless entry by entering your four-digit PIN number and pressing enter.

With some Security+ models, you can also program your Model 940CB Wireless Keyless Entry without climbing a ladder, right from your Multi-Function Control Panel. Simply enter your pre-selected code and press and hold the enter button on your Keyless Entry. Then press and hold the light button and the pushbutton on your Multi-Function Control Panel. The garage door opener lights will flash to confirm that the Keyless Entry has been successfully programmed.

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 number into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate, and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed.

You might possibly have held the smart/learn button in too long and erased the code for the remote. Hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. This should program it for the remote. Now make sure the keypad is still working.

Program 2004 mercury mountainer garage opener


Verify the hand-held transmitter is operative.
Prepare for programming the universal transmitter by erasing all three channels (hold down the two outside buttons until the red light begins to flash [20-30 seconds]). Release both buttons.
Select one of the three universal transmitter channels to be programmed by pressing the desired button
Hold the end of the hand-held transmitter 25-51 mm (1-2 in) from the front surface of the universal transmitter so that the red light can still be seen
Use both hands to press the hand-held transmitter button and the desired button on the universal transmitter. Do not release either button.
Hold down both buttons until the red light on the universal transmitter flashes, first slowly and then rapidly. Release both buttons when the rapid flashing begins. The universal transmitter has successfully learned the new frequency signal and can be used in place of the hand-held transmitter(s).
If the hand-held transmitter appears to program the universal transmitter but does not open the garage door, the garage door opener may have a code protected or rolling code feature.
To operate, simply press the appropriate button on the universal transmitter. The red light is on while the signal is being transmitted.
IF THE GARAGE OPENER HAS ROLLING CODES---
program as above then------
Train the garage door opener receiver to recognize the universal transmitter.
Remove the cover panel from the garage door opener receiver.
Locate the training button on the garage door opener receiver. Location and color of the button may vary by garage door opener manufacturer. Refer to the garage door opener instruction manual or owner literature.
Press the training button on the garage door opener receiver for 1-2 seconds.
Press the programmed universal transmitter button for as long as the universal transmitter red light flashes (1-2 seconds). Release the button and re-press the button to confirm that the universal transmitter is trained to the receiver.
The garage door opener should recognize the universal transmitter.

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.
