Question about Chamberlain 950CB Remote Control

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.

The remotes for my craftsman garage door opener will not reprogram. the light on the rear of the unit does not blink when I try and reset / reprogram the remotes.


Anytime you cannot program more than one remote it is the receiver that has quit working. The receiver is part of the logic board.

ANY TIME YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY IN A REMOTE IT NEEDS TO BE REPROGRAMED.

ON THE CIRCUIT BOARD YOU WILL FINS A SQUARE BUTTON.
PRESS AND RELEASE NOW HOLD DOWN THE BUTTON ON THE REMOTE FOR ABOUT 20 SECONDS. WHEN YOU PRESS THE REMOTE THE NEXT TIME THE DOOR SHOULD OPEN.

HOW CAN YOU REPROGRAM BOTH REMOTES TO WORK? I HAD TROUBLE WITH THE ACTUAL DOOR, THAT GOT FIXED , BUT SOMEHOW OPENERS NEEDED REPROGRAMMING. WE CAN ONLY SEEM TO REPROGRAM ONE OR THE OTHER.


It sounds like you have a Security + opener and one of your remotes has reverted to the billion code technology. You will need to purchase a new remote with the same model number and then you will find that 2 of the remotes will program just fine. It will take trial and error to eliminate the bad remote. I suggest you remove the battery and discard the bad one.

If you are having a problem with all your units that transmit a radio signal it is your receiver that is going bad. It is part of the logic board.

Intermittent remote trouble


Your wall control is hard wired and doesn't use the receiver portion of the logic board. The remotes do. Your receiver is going bad.

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
