Are you sure you aren't stating the facts just the opposite of what they are? That would be a fairly common complaint.

When I leave the garage, I can use the keypad to close the door.......but when I return and try to open the door with the keypad....it won't open.


Make sure the battery is good. A weak battery can cause this problem. If that is not the case and your other remote units work your keypad may be going bad and need to be replaced.

Wireless keypad will close door but open


WHEN YOU CHANGE THE BATTERY YOU NEED TO REPROGRAM THE UNIT.

IF THAT DOESN'T WORK YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD KEYPAD.

Sears Wireless keypad will close door but will not open


If you are sure the battery is good than it sound like the keypad is bad and needs to be replaced. With a 6+ year old operator I would suggest a wired keyless entry (Donino GD-1) so if the operator has to be replaced you can use the same keyless entry.
