Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
I just moved into a new home and I cannot use the remote to open the garage door. The opener on the wall works fine. I know that the battery works because the green light flashes, both on the remote and the unit when I press any of the three buttons. It looks like the model number is 53779. the FCC ID # is H?BW0709. The date on the back of the remote is 03/95
It sounds as though the remotes are not programmed. Check your main unit; does it have a learn button or are there dipswitches?
If your unit has a learn button, check to see if there are dipswitches in the remotes. Pop the battery cover off, and if they exist, there they'll be. If there, set them identically for each remote.
Then, press and hold the learn button;on the main opener unit. its LED light will light for approx 6 seconds. The memory is now cleared. Now, press and RELEASE the learn button. While the LED light is on (it will stay on for about 30 seconds) press the button on ONE of the remotes. This will program ALL remotes that have had their dipswitches set identically. Do not attempt to program each remote individually; doing so leaves programmed only the LAST remote you program -- the others will no longer work.

I had the same issue when I moved to a new place.
I was not able to find very much information on the interenet about it. Your remote has lost its sync with the garage door opener.
I called the 1-800 number located on the unit itself (yeah it took a ladder to get it) and the walked me though the setup in about 2 minutes.
I spent longer on hold than it took to setup the remote.
You need to make sure that you a clear on the model #s before you call them.
