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

1 Answer

The precise remote issue

Just bought and installed a Chamberlain 315MHz Whisperdrive. It came with one wall button and one remote. The remote just stopped working after a week. I changed the battery, but no luck. I contacted Chamberlain, and they gave me a list of four remotes compatible with my system. I went to the hardware store and placed an order. I received them today and tried to program them. No luck. The wall button works fine, and there is no vacation lockout control to worry about, nor is there a lock option. BTW, I did try reprogramming the old remote but it does not program either. Any ideas?

Try holding down the wall button. If this does work the door as you hold it down then the problem is misaligned sensors. If it is not that then more than likely the logic board is not good. I have never seen a whisper drive that has a door bell button and only came with one remote though???Thanks BB

The 953EV/EVC remote is designed to work with garage door openers at 315MHz (more or less). Your older unit doesn't work at that frequency. I'm not positive but it could be 300MHz.

You need a retrofit unit to use the new remote. See https://aclickawayremotes.com/Liftmaster/355LM-2-315-Mhz-Garage-Door-Opener-Conversion-Kit/index.html for one that works with Chamberlain units.

I hope this helps.

All garage door openers have a quick release. Have you checked to make sure that is locked in place? Most have a cord hangin from it and you pull it which releases it from the chain. Make sure that is engaged and it should work.

I can't get either one of my remotes to learn to open the garage. I have followed the instructions and still neither one works. I even clear the codes after each unsuccessful time. Please help.


Hi, the Liftmaster 371 remote control operates on the 315MHz frequency, ensure your receiver works on this frequency, some Liftmaster remotes and receivers operate on 390MHz.371 remote is compatible with models manufactured from 2005, and all Chamberlain Liftmaster and Sears garage door openers with a purple learn button and purple antenna.

Sounds like your receiver has quit working. To program the remotes do this: Press and hold the button on the remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote. If this doesn't work your logic board is bad.

If the wall button will operate the door up but none of the devices do then look at the wall button. Find the lock button and push it for 2 seconds and then try the remotes again. This is your vacation lock. You can get a manual at chamberlain.com. Now if the door does not open or close with the remotes you can reprogram them. Press the colored learn button on the motor head and then press the button on the remote. Repeat for each remote. If they fail to program you will need a new logic board. Thanks BB

My Liftmaster 373LM remote and wireless 377LM Keypad not working


You should have a small wire hanging down from the back of the opener. This is the remote control antenna wire. Strip off about and inch splice a wire to it. The connections is just twisting the wires together. Run the extended wire up to the ceiling and down the wall where the door is located. Most of the time in the top corners where the weather stripping is, there is a small gap. Slip the wire through the gap so the wire extends outside of the door. The key to this is getting the wire outside. 99% of the time this extension of the antenna will be enough to conquer interference issues. You are correct that you are running on 315mhz and the military will not affect it. Let me know if it helps

2 different openers stopped working by remote at the same time


Both the older genie and a newer chamberlain (3-4 yrs old) both run on 390Mhz frequency. sounds like you will have to change your receivers on both operators (365LM 315Mhz) then get 3 button remote so you can program both doors on one remote.

Sears Craftsman 1/2Hp Garage Door Opener - Opens on its own


There are three causes for this problem:
1. a remote is sticking or is getting bumped (if the vacation lock is on and it still has phantom operation remotes are not the issue).
2. the logic board could be going bad (if you have the 315Mhz you have a newer operator so this is probably not your issue)
3. the wires to the wall button have a short. Try disconnecting the wall button wires from the operator. If this stopps the phantom operaton you might solve your issue by running new wires to your wall button.

Garage door opener


I was having a problem with the remotes. Program one remote, and the other stops working and vice-versa. I found the solution to be as follows: Using 61LM single-button remotes for Lift-master WhisperDrive (belt drive) garage door opener, I set the dipswitches (find them by removing battery replacement cover) to identical settings in both remotes. Set the first dipswitch to the neutral (0) setting. Next -- and this is the important part -- press the learn button on the main door opening unit, and, while the small LED light is lit, press the button on ONE of the remotes. DO NOT REPEAT ON THE SECOND REMOTE. Upon doing this, I found that BOTH remotes at last worked. I then went on to program a keyless entry pad, which was accomplished by again pressing the learn button on the main unit, and then entering the number sequence I had chosen for my entry code on the keypad, and pressing Enter. Both remotes continued to function and the keypad functions as well.
