Could be a bad wall button or a smashed wire.
Anytime a door opens and/or closes by itself, or remotes work intermitantly I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button or a bad wall button.

If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote.

Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.

The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.
Or a remote in someone’s purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.

The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button.

HOPE THIS HELPS

If you have more than one remote and they all work but when you try to program the keypad it causes the remotes to quit working then your keypad is bad.

The correct keypad for your opener is 139.53684. The 53876 keypad is an older technology and will not work correctly. If you program it you will find your remotes no longer work and if you reprogram your remotes the keypad will not work.

Remotes don't work, keyless entry won't work, wall remote some


Check to make sure the door sensors are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. If you cannot get both lights to come on then your sensors have failed.

Trouble with programing garage remotes and keyless entry pad


Either the keypad is the wrong model for your opener or it has reverted to an earlier technology and needs to be replaced. It is important that you get the model number off your motor unit so you can be sure you get the right keypad for your opener.

Reset Craftsman keyless entry pad.


What you are asking for is not possible. You need to call a garage door repair technician. They will drill a hole through the door and using a special tool can pull the rope to release the door.
