I have a 1/2 HP craftsman garage door opened with the key pad. The code started not working. WHen I try to reset, the keypad just flashes. HELP!


Make sure the battery in the keypad is good. If you cannot get the keypad to work using this method to program then your keypad has failed.

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.

If you didn't, try programming the remote this way.

Press and hold the button on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the motor unit. If this doesn't work you need to make sure you have the correct remote for the model opener you have. Your model number doesn't bring any results from Sears Parts.com.

Key pad not working. Garage door will open with


I'm confused about the battery you replaced inside the garage but you can try programming the keypad just to see.

Locate the smart/learn button on the back of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over and key in your 4 digit code and press enter. If this doesn't work and you know the battery inside the keypad is good, you have a bad keypad.

Press and hold for 3 seconds the button on the wall control that has an icon of a lock. The light should quit blinking and your remotes will once again work. Holding that button for 3 seconds toggles your openers vacation mode.

Craftsman 1/2 HP Garage Door opener problem


The remote and the keypad work through a signal sent to the receiver while the wall console, as you said it's wired directly to the opener, so it's likely that the receiver is shot. I'd try reprogramming the remote to just rule out the chance that all code wasn't erased first. (Press the learn button on the back of the operator head, stand back 5 feet and within 30 seconds slowly press the remote button a few times to see if it operates the opener). If this doesn't work, you can install an external LiftMaster universal receiver with the correct frequency and you should be good.
If there's a purple antenna hanging off the head, this is a 315 freq, use a 356LM, if black it's a 390 freq, use a 635LM receiver.
Then you'll have to reprogram your remote and keypad to the receiver.
Since there's also the issue with the light, there's also a possibility the circuit board got fried. Did you have any storms lately?

Garage Door Key Pad


Assuming, from what I read, the remote works..The inside switch is just a doorbell switch which will wear out or have the contacts get bent or dirty. Take off wall, and change for new one or see if the contacts can be cleaned or adjusted. If the pad is electronic (coded) the wires may be bad or the control defective. Usually momentary contact of the two wires will cause the door to actuate.
