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

1 Answer

Remote will not open or close door when temperature is cold.

I have a single door 1/2 HP Craftsman model #139.53910D. When the temperature is in the 30's and below the remote will not open or close the door. The unit works fine at these times using the hard wired button inside the garage. As soon as the temperature warms the remote again works perfectly. I'd really appreciate being able to correct this problem. Thanks.

Bill

If this is an outside remote the best you could do is maybe put someting to insulate the remote if it is in your car don't leave it on the visor put it in the glove box or maybe the center console it is obvious that expansion/contraction physics are playing a part

Batteries are affected by cold temperature.
Just like a car battery won't have enough power to turn engine when battery gets weak and it's cold outside.
I'm guess your remote is stored outside in cold garage.
See if remote battery can be replaced with fresh one.

Make sure the brackets for the sensors are tight and the small light on the sensors is not blinking ever so slightly. You also might try shading the sensor so that the sun is not shining directly into the lens.

If the main light flashes 10 times when you try to close the door it is a sensor problem. Make sure they are not flickering ever so slightly and that they are not loose on their brackets. Tweak them a little bit.

On the rear of the motor unit you will find the up and down force adjustments. Increase these just about 1/4 turn and try. Make sure the tracks have not been lubricated at some time with grease. With the cold weather the grease becomes thick. The tracks should never be greased.

Your door sensors are either bad or need simply to be aligned. They must be pointed at one another to work properly. Each of them has a small light that will be lit when they are pointed correctly.
