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

1 Answer

Door won't open or close

I've had it for around 10 years... I opened it 2 weeks ago..opened like usual... tried to close it and it would not respond light turns on like it has heard the command from the remote unit but nothing happens, It's not the door sensor, I checked that. It's not a jammed belt, I checked that too. I can't find a reset button so I unplugged it overnight and plugged it back in, that didn't work. Do I just need a new unit?

It may be stuck on the stop bolt... Is the carrier ( the part that moves the garage door) jammed?

Sears garage door opener 1/2 hp about 6 years old. Will not respond to remotes to open and close. Light flashes on opener when remote is pressed but no door action.


Door sensors are not working. Check if lights are on both sides.
Might be misaligned or one is bad.
Door will close if you hold in the garge close button until it's all the way down.
And it will open on it's own.
You can get these off ebay.

Chamberline 1/2 hp belt drive opener that stops opening


It sure sounds like a broken spring. Sometimes the break can be difficult to see. How heavy is the door to lift manually. This will give you a good idea.

Keypad Chaimberlain 32B2171-1 does not work any more


You can try programming but if it still doesn't work then your keypad is just bad. Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.

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 Garage Door Opener automatically opens


Do you live anywhere near a military base? This may sound like a strange question, but the military began using frequencies that are the same as garage door openers, and a lot of people near bases are having trouble with their door openers. These frequencies were reserved some time ago for the military, but weren't used until maybe a year or so ago. Countrycurt0
