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

1 Answer

Garage door works sometimes and sometimes it won't

The remote seem to be working fine. But sometimes when I try to open the door it only goes up half way or part way. Closeing the door is never a problem. The door seems to be difficult when the temp is on the rise. I live in Iowa and right now it's cold, door working fine. I've tried to adjust the chain, up and down tention on the motor. Nothing works for very long. Can you offer and help. Larry

How do I change the frequency of a garage door opener 139.53930ODM?


Hi... You have to "erase all codes" (you can read that section of the manual and teach the opener to use the remote using a new code. You can get the manual at the Craftsman site, page 35. Essentially you do this: access the reset button n the back right of the motor, press and hold the 'learn' for 6 seconds or more,until the learn light goes off. TO reprogram it, press the learn button until the light goes on, then within 30 seconds, press and hold the desired button of the remote. Voila!

Garage Door Remote


Did you happen to put a new light bulb in it? I put an LED bulb in mine and the interference caused the remotes to stop working. I had a bear figuring it out, because it seemed to be totally random. Sometimes they would work and sometimes they wouldn't. Once I switched back to an incandescent, it worked fine.

Caution: do not use LED bulbs with garage door openers. They are a possible source of signal interference between the transmitter and receiver on the opener.

Your door switch is bad. You can get one at home depot, it's nothing more than a door bell button. Your lights are correct and I bet if you try to close with your remote it works. That also will verify it's a bad button.

First thing I would do is remove the wire from terminal #1 on the rear of the motor unit and try your remotes. This wire goes to the wall control and it sometimes causes the remotes to quit. If this doesn't correct the problem then I suspect a bad logic board. Especially if you have had any electrical storms.
