Most likely if the opener will close the door, but not open it, the springs are fatigued enough to where the opener is exceeding the force limits established. If the door is really heavy the opener will not open it as a safety precaution.

The keypad is probably fine, but you need to have a professional garage door repair technician come out and take a look at the garage door hardware! Repeat: Do not work on the springs yourself!

Have a liftmaster keypad entry. Will not open garage door from outside but will close from outside?


Sounds like a weak battery. A weak signal made even weaker by the thickness of the door.

The inside button is hard wired. The keypad is a small radio transmitter. If the battery in the keypad is good and it doesn't work when you put in the code it has probably just quit.

Outside keypad will not open or close door,but the control inside works. put new battery in no help


The wall control is hard wired to the opener and doesn't use the receiver. The keypad does use the receiver. If you have hand remotes that work then it is your keypad that has quit working. Without remotes you cannot know if it is the keypad or the receiver.

Craftsman outside keypad


On the back panel of the opener itself is a small pushbutton. Press the button and the indicator near it will light. While the indicator is lit, enter the new 4-digit code on your keypad and it will be set. (You are actually programming the receiver with the new code this way. The wireless keypad doesn't store a code.) The programming light goes off on its own.
