SOURCE: remotes quit working for garage door

I had the same problem with my Craftsman opener but different model. However to fix this I simply followed the instructions that came with the opener and reprogramed the remote to the opener. The instructions are in your owners manual and are pretty straight forward.. John

I was having a problem with the remotes. Program one remote, and the other stops working and vice-versa. I found the solution to be as follows: Using 61LM single-button remotes for Lift-master WhisperDrive (belt drive) garage door opener, I set the dipswitches (find them by removing battery replacement cover) to identical settings in both remotes. Set the first dipswitch to the neutral (0) setting. Next -- and this is the important part -- press the learn button on the main door opening unit, and, while the small LED light is lit, press the button on ONE of the remotes. DO NOT REPEAT ON THE SECOND REMOTE. Upon doing this, I found that BOTH remotes at last worked. I then went on to program a keyless entry pad, which was accomplished by again pressing the learn button on the main unit, and then entering the number sequence I had chosen for my entry code on the keypad, and pressing Enter. Both remotes continued to function and the keypad functions as well.

On the garage opener that actually opens the door the one on the ceilling has a green or orange button that is called the learn button just press and release it you have 30 seconds to punch in a 4 digit code and when your done press and hold the enter button until the lights on the garage open blink once or twice then just press the code again and it will open the door press enter once to reverse the effect and and twice to stop the door completely.


Hope that helps

That isn't the model number you give it is the part number for the logic board. The model number is on the opposite end of the motor unit and starts with 139. If you are asking if the opener should reverse when it hits an obstacle the answer is yes. If it doesn't it is not adjusted correctly or is faulty.

If the recycled remote is Security + there is no logical reason the new units should not work. If the old remote is a different technology and there have been changes to the opener or a different receiver that could be the problem.

Have your neighbor bring over his remote and open or close your door with it. Then hold the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds on your opener. Then see if he can open your door. He shouldn't be able to because that procedure erases the memory in your opener. No remotes should work. You need to get that remote #53778 back and program it and then see if your neighbor can open your door. If he can open your door at any point after you have held that button in for 6 seconds you need to get a new door opener.

Cannot re-program remote transmitters for garage door opener


If both remotes quit at or about the same time then it is most likely the receiver that has quit. Especially if you have had electrical storms in the area. The receiver is part of your logic board.

Remote to garage door opener wont work no solution on fixya


The Clicker is a hard one to program. You might try it a couple more times to be sure it won't work.
The 61LM is the Liftmaster remote that goes with that unit. There is a possiblity that the reciever on the board is bad. That board is no longer available but you can get a 635LM external reciever that is backward compatable with the 61LM remote.

Craftsman Garage Door Opener


I posted the following answer to a similar question posed by 'dodgeya' the other day.
I'm not sure how to direct you to that thread, so am re-copying my suggestion here...

>> Do you have the option to change the electronic codes on your garage door opener system? My father-in-law had the same problem a number of years ago. He had not reset the code (equivalent to the combination on a lock) from the equivalent of 0-0-0 (which his unit shipped with). Turned out that a neighbor (or neighbour - in Canada) had the same /similar unit and when the neighbor opened 'his' door, my father-in-law's door would also open. You don't have to see the person drive by - it can be the neighbors behind you as well. You may find a solution by determining if you can change the original electronic code to a different one of your own choosing.
Hope this helps.
