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

General Garage Door, Telectron Remote Opener, Circa 1990

I have an old Teclectron Remote opener for a General Garage Door Opener that works find. I found that the plastic actuator was broken when I opened the remote. It works when you depress the micro-switch in the bottom of the remote.

As this is an old garage door opener, they do not make these anymore. What would I get on Amazon or Ebay that would work. Does the 371LM work with these old units?

Thanks

Forget about that , that remote is done!, just go to sears or home depot or if you want ,from amazon ,a universal reciever and remote kit , they cost around 50 dollars and the reciever just has two bell wires connected to the machine terminal 1 and 2 dosent matter which way you wire it red to white or white to red , connect the two wires to the terminals in the reciever and the other end goes to the 1-2 terminals ON THE MACHINE FROM LEFT TO RIGHT THE FIRST TWO SCREWS you will see it because you already have two wires connected to it ,just add theese also and then plug the reciever in , you remote is already programmed from the factory so their is no programming ! Hope this helps you ,if you thoght i was helpful please leave a nice rating and thank you again Sincerely Glenn mayer

I purchase a new garage door opener and my old remotes wont work with it I have 4 old remotes


If it came with its own remote (probably), then you'll have to use the new remote with it - they're all keyed to individual garage door openers, as it should be; otherwise, anyone could use any old remote to open your garage door.

Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

Garage door only raises about two inches then stops.


Check the door springs and also remove the cover from the motor unit and check the drive gear. The door spring could be broken or the drive gear may be stripped.

The sensors only work when the door is closing.

Where to buy remote control and reset My garage door opener also


To erase the memory of the opener so that your old remote will no longer work you need to locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and hold this button for 6 seconds. No remotes will now work.

To program the new remote when you get it, hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button.

Call any local door opener repair company from the yellow pages and you should be able to buy a remote from them.

Sears garage door opener


I just found the solution for my 'ancient' Sears garage door opener, model # 139.655000, and I figured I'd share it.

There's a separate radio module, wired to the main opener. This module is small, has a short wire/antenna, and plugs directly into an outlet.

There's a manual open/close button on this module (I didn't realize this until I got up on a ladder). This button is also a removable cover; underneath it is a "smart actuate" button -- this is your learn button.

What I did was: unplug the radio module. Pry off the cover. Plug the radio module back in. Hold down the button on the remote. Press the "smart actuate" button. This programmed my remote successfully!
