You have used up all of the remote spaces on the opener. You need to reset the remotes. Press and hold the learn button for 8 seconds. This clears the memory for all remotes. Then press and release the learn button and then press the button on the remote. The light will blink once on the opener. Repeat this step on the other remotes.

How do I check a wireless garage door keypad, to see if it is transmitting?


These remotes don't loose the programming code when a battery goes dead, most likely the remote or the board on the opener went bad, do any other remotes work? You can take the remote to an auto parts store and test it there. (They have a tester for key fobs)

When I set the code in the key pad it seems to cancel the code already in the remotes. Would appreciate any ideas on how to correct the problem.


Your keypad and your remotes are not the same technology. One of them is Security + and the other is Billion code. Each of them will operate your opener but they will not work with one another. Did you just purchase the keypad?

I programmed 2 new remotes with no issue but, cannot get the remote keypad to reprogram (we just bought the home and don't know the existing code) the model for the garage door opener is Chamberlain...


Your keypad may be bad. If you press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then key in your 4 digit code and press enter the keypad should be working. Be sure you have a good battery. Actually the flashing of the keypad is indicating that it is sending the signal to the receiver. Holding the enter button in doesn't do anything extra.

To program the remotes, hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button.

For the keypad, press and immediately release the smart/learn button and walk over and key in your four digit code and press enter.

Reset keyless remote..need directions for 1/2 horsepower sear's b


Ok you need to reset the code on your keypad? Or put a new code in. Well ill tell you how to do both. Before you start make sure you have all the remotes with you. to clear the keypad you have to delete all the codes for all the remotes (No there is no other way :-/) To do this there is a little red button on your opener its self not the remote. Press and hold it till the light goes out.(apox 6-8 sec) Try one of the remote they should not work. Now to set everything back up. Press the red button again just once DONT NOT HOLD IT. a little ambered color light will come on and flash then press the remote untill you hear a click and the lights on the open should flash once. Repaet that for each remote. Ok now to set up your keypad press the red button again go to your keypad and type in your code and hold enter till you see the lights flash on the opener. Then type in your code again to make sure it worked. If you just wanted to program a new code for your keypad then just do that last step

what keypad are you using with new opener? Frequency has changed. can't use old one. you probably never needed to change things; just needed to follow proper coding procedures.

Garage door keypad & remote


You need to sync both. I have a LiftMaster. If you want to change the code on your keypad you need to open up the garage door motor compartment where the light is (mine is in the back). Press the learn button, within 30 seconds enter the new code on your keypad and hold down the enter button for several seconds until the light on the opener blinks to tell you it has learned the code. Test the new code to see if it works. If the new keypad code works, then try the remote. My remote will not work after I reprogram the keypad. If the remote does not work (check battery) then climb back up the ladder and press the learn button on the garage door motor again, press the remote button and hold down until the light blinks again and the opener has learned the new code. This process works when I need to sync my remote and keypad. Good luck, I hope this helps.

Sears garage door keypad/remote programming problem


Hi All,

I had the same issue recently and here's what I found out (through a LOT of research) and the solution (yes, there is one!):

As described by many, when you can't get both the remote and the wireless pad to work together it means your garage door opener can accept both rolling code and billing code technology, BUT not at the same time. When you reset all codes (normally by pressing a button on the opener for a period of time e.g. 6 seconds or more), you erase all codes and remote "pairings". Then when you follow the manufacturer's procedure to pair again (which could be the wireless key pad first OR the remote first), the first pairing determines the technology for all subsequent pairings. Example: if your first pairing/programming was with the wireless keypad, and if it was rolling code technology (normally the case for newer models), then the garage opener will only recognize and accept rolling code for subsequent pairings. If your remote(s) are older (billion code technology) then the opener won't even recognize the signal (e.g. led won't blink when trying to pair/program).

And vice versa if you start with your remote after erasing all programming (then your keyless pad won't work).

But here is a potential workaround! For newer wireless keypads (e.g. clicker from chamberlain), you have an option to select the type of opener you are using as you do the initial password set up (normally indicated by a number e.g. 1 for models built after 1995, 2 for models built between 1997 and 2004, etc). Each choice is associated with a technology in the background (e.g. either rolling code or billion code). If you are programming your wireless keypad first after erasing all codes / programming, if you chose the "recommended" option for garage opener, chances are it will be rolling code and that means you won't be able to program your older remotes (billion code) after that. So how can you chose the option that will match your remote???

Here's what you do: start by pairing / programming your older remote first after erasing all codes / programs. That sets the technology (e.g. billion code). Then, go ahead and program your wireless keypad, but you may have to go through the process several times by trying the different options until you find one that works!

For me, I had to try 4 options before making it work. Options 1 through 3 (mind you, options #2 was the exact match for my garage door opener model but it would cause the problem discussed here e.g. wireless keypad would work but not the remotes) would not even be recognized by the opener in this procedure (LED would not blink), but it did work once I hit option 4.

I hope this will help you with your problem. Let me know if it's not clear. Cheers!
