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

1 Answer

Liftmaster belt driven door opener made in 1995

I recently had to change the large plastic gear which required me to take the belt off my liftmaster door opener. I replaced the gear and put the belt back on. I adjusted the belt spring back to where it was (I marked it before I took it off). Now the door will not go all the way down or up unless I help it ever so slightly.

You need to adjust the limit settings. There are two white screws on the side of the opener. One adjusts the down limit and the other adjusts the up limit. One full turn adjusts the door approx two inches, so turn the screws in small increments and see how much more to adjust.

The gears are all the same with the exception of the belt drive units that have a different top sprocket , you can find the part # on the internet simply by putting in the model # of your opener and identifying whether you have a belt drive or chain drive machine , you can also find the part on Ebay by putting sears/liftmaster or chamberlain sprocket gear assembly in the description ....All 3 of those models are made by Liftmaster being the main Brand ! Liftmaster manufactures the sears craftsmen for Sears and also goes under the chamberlain brand name that k mart and Home depot and Lowes sells ! Liftmaster is the worlds largest manufacturer of garage door openers and all 3 machines are interchangeable with their parts ! Hope this helps you Sincerely Glenn

Motor runs but door won't open. checked chain, seems to be ok


Hello,

The problem is not the chain, it is the plastic gear in the unit of the liftmaster Garage Door 1/2 Hp.The plastic gear is not engaging, although it sounds like it is working.

You will have to replace it with a new one, then the liftmaster Garage Door 1/2 Hp will be able to open up once again.

Once you open and remove the old gear, Be sure to thread the screws in all the parts before you install them. Pre-threading them once would really help. Secondly, label the wires on the back of the opener before lowering it to the ladder, so you can put them back in their proper place.

Hope this was helpful.
Goodluck

My liftmaster garage opener started today with only closing part way and opening part way. What can be causing this? Thanks


FIRST - pull the cover off and see if you have shredded white plastic inside.

IF YES - replace the drive gear set.

IF NO - lube & adjust the traveler / chain & door spring.

The owners manual has a good diagnostic section - available at liftmaster.com

Hope this helps

Recently changed gear and now door will not close


The opener clicking 10 times when the door reverses is a door sensor problem. You may have knocked a wire loose on the back of the motor unit or accidently bumped one of your door sensors. Make sure the small light on each sensor is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit to get them properly pointed at one another.

Liftmaster 1/2hp problem with shredding gear shift really fast


DOES THE DOOR WORK SMOOTHLY AND EASILY MANUALLY??
IF NOT THAT WILL CHEW UP YOUR GEARS.
IF THE DOOR WORKS WELL MANUALLY I AM GUESSING YOU ONLY REPLACED THE EASY GEAR.
YOU NEED TO REPLACE *BOTH* GEARS - FOLLOW THE INSTUCTIONS COMPLETELY. THE SECOND ONE IS HARD TO CHANGE BUT IF YOU DON'T THE ROUGH SURFACE OF THE HARDER WORN GEAR WILL CHEW AT THE NEW GEAR AND ..... WELL YOU HAVE SEEN THE RESULTS.
HOPE THIS HELPS

GDO repair


If unit is pre 1993 (Safety beam era), Sears will not sell you any parts. Google Liftmaster gear kit. Buy for $25-30. Not hard if you are handy. Buy the complete kit with bearings.
