Garage door will not reprogram its remotes

I have a garage door from Craftsman Model 139.53664SRT2. I was having trouble with the remotes only working in a short distance and the keyless pad would not work at all. I tried new batteries and reprogramming the remotes, however, when I try to reprogram, nothing happens. The unit never blinks to show that it has reprogrammed. Now, the remote will not even work at a short distance. Any suggestions?

    yes, i did hold down the remote button and then the red button on the power head, but it doesn't do anything. It is suppose to blink after a few seconds when it is programmed. The yellow light goes on when you press the button. It stays on for a minute and then goes off. There is an antenna wire as well

Did you actually go to the power head and push the program button, then the remote button?

Is there a small wire hanging down from the power head? It's the antenna wire.

    Sounds like the receiver board may be going bad. You can order from SearsPartsDirect.

How do I change the frequency of a garage door opener 139.53930ODM?

Hi... You have to "erase all codes" (you can read that section of the manual and teach the opener to use the remote using a new code. You can get the manual at the Craftsman site, page 35. Essentially you do this: access the reset button n the back right of the motor, press and hold the 'learn' for 6 seconds or more,until the learn light goes off. TO reprogram it, press the learn button until the light goes on, then within 30 seconds, press and hold the desired button of the remote. Voila!

Garage Door Remote

Did you happen to put a new light bulb in it? I put an LED bulb in mine and the interference caused the remotes to stop working. I had a bear figuring it out, because it seemed to be totally random. Sometimes they would work and sometimes they wouldn't. Once I switched back to an incandescent, it worked fine.

My garage door opens when the neighbor opens his garage door

somehow his controller has "grabbed" your frequency which you already know, you cant change the frequency of you garage door receiver. what you do is unplug you opener and have him reprogram his remote to his door while your receiver is incapable of being programmed. somehow your receiver was in program mode when he set his door opener up. at the back of your opener there should be a red button that allows you to program new receivers, make sure this isnt damaged or stuck while pushed in. i have tried these ideas with some success.if this doesnt work then try reprogramming both yours and his from scratch, one at a time while the one not being done is unplugged. hope this helps

Have chamberlain security plus 950cb lost instructions.
This web address came from the Chamberlain site. I also needed to relearn my remotes due to a newer car that has a built in garage door opener that needed to be set. I also needed to reset my keypad remote, those instructions I was able to get from the same site. Good Luck

Remote does not open garage door

It sounds like the wall button has the lock feature engauged.

Is there a small green LED flashing inside the wall button?
Push and hold the lock button for about two seconds and the LED should stop flashing. This will unlock the garage door opener and your remotes should start working. You may have to reprogram your remotes and homelink again since you triedprograming in the lock mode.

Good luck.
