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?

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.

Sears 1/2 horsepower chain drive garage door opener (circa 1993) would not open with remote and light on back of opener is flashing quickly. Tried reprogramming the remote, but had no success and the green...

It sounds like you have a remote with the button pressed or broken so that it is on all the time. Remove the batteries from your remotes and check that light. The rapid flashing is an indication that it is receiving a signal. Make sure you don't have an old remote in a drawer somewhere.
