Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

Craftsman 1\2 hp clicks, motor wurrs for 1 sec', but doesn't open

My 13 year old Craftsman unit suddenly quit working. All it does when the control button is pushed, is a click the light comes on and then a wurr from the motor for about a second and then it quits.
I have disengaged the door fron the chain, but the same happens.

    I guess the "wurr" is more of a buzz. The motor does not move and the gears are in good shape with little or no wear.

    It seems that the motor is in a bind or the starter/circuit board has a problem.

    Thanks

You have a stripped gear on the opener. Take off the cover on the motor. The bottom of the cover will be filled with white shavings. You can repair this with a "liftmaster gear and sprocket assembly".

    The trolley is probably pinned against the stop bolt. If so, loosen the screw on the trolly and take the chain off the sprocket on top of the motor. move the trolly a few inches off the bolt and put the chain back on. You will have to adjust the limit screws on the side of the opener. Test the limits with the door disengauged to get close and then fine tune with the door attached. Make sure the force settings are not turned up above five. They are the blue screws on the back of the opener.

How do i reprogram garage opener model 139.53776


To ensure that old codes do not work, first press and hold the SR code button (Learn) on the garage door opener's control panel. Hold the button until the LED goes out. The Learn button is a colored button that is usually on the back panel to the left of the force and up/down adjustment knobs. Sometimes the control panel is on the side of the unit.

Next get a helper to make the programming easier. One person will need to press and release the Learn button. Then within 30 seconds, the second person (or a fast moving individual) needs to type in a 4 digit code and press the enter key on the key pad. The LED near the learn button will flash when the code is received.

If you reset all of the codes, you'll need to repeat the fast press and release of the Learn button. Then press a control button on the remote for most of your other door opener remotes. (There may be a pair of remotes that came with the garage door opener that will never be forgotten.)

I hope this helps.
