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

1 Answer

I have a Genie Directlift 2060 garage opener. My wireless keypad has always worked fine until now. I enter the code and nothing happens. I replaced the battery with the same result. I followed the instructions on the inside panel of the pad to reprogram the number and still the wireless keypad won't work. When you are punching in the code the red light on the keypad flashes like it is supposed to but still doesn't work. Any ideas?

Your wireless keypad may be flashing the red light to falsely assure you that it is working when, in fact, it is not. Another possibility is that the receiver has failed.

SOURCE: Liftmaster wireless keypad closes but won't open the door

If you are sure the battery is good you have a bad keypad. The signal strength is so weak it will not penetrate the door.

SOURCE: Liftmaster Keypad does not operate door

You can try programming the keypad but I have a feeling it has just quit working. To program it: locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to your keypad and key in your PIN and press enter.

SOURCE: door close with wireless remote entry but will not open

HAVE SOMEONE PUT IN THE CODE AND THEN HOLD DOWN THE ENTER KEY. IF THE LED NEXT TO THE PROGRAM BUTTON FLASHES RAPIDLY THE KEYPAD IS SENDING A CODE. TRY REPROGRAMING THE KEYPAD.

IF THE LED DOES NOT FLASH, NO RADIO SIGNAL IS BEING SENT THE KEYPAD IS BAD.

SOURCE: My pad, when I put in pass code #, will not open my garage door from the outside.

We have a Craftsman 1/2 HP garage door opener with wireless keypad. Recently, the keypad has stopped working. I replaced the battery, but it still did not resolve the problem. I do not see a light and the keypad does not seem to be responding. Any ideas how I should troubleshoot this issue?

How do you clear and re-enter a new code for wall mounted remote


To change the code you need to locate the smart/learn button which is near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over to your keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

See if this works for your car.

  1. Clear out anything previously programmed into the in-car system from the factory by holding down on the 2-outside buttons simultaneously, until the in-car LED starts flashing rapidly. This may take up to a minute (in most cases, the key should be on auxillary, and/or the car door must be shut).
  2. Decide which button you want to make to be your in-car garage door transmitter. Hold your transmitter up near the selected button, pressing both the garage door remote and the selected in-car transmitter button simultaneously. Hold down on the buttons until the in-car, LED light flashes rapidly. This sets the in-car remote transmitter to be your garage door openers make transmitter, but you are not done. You now need to make this in-car transmitter your personal transmitter.
3. Go to the Learn Button on your garage door opener. The button is usually next to the area where the floppy antenna is connected to the motor head. With Genie it is most often behind the light lens, and an indicator light flashes red when pressed. With Sears or Liftmaster (Chamberlain) it is near, or part of, the terminal screw board, and is a red, green or purple square button with a green, amber or purple indicator light. Press this learn button momentarily. The indicator light will turn on and blink if Genie or otherwise stay lit. For Genie systems, go back to the in-car transmitter button you programmed and press this button 3 or 4 times, or until the door starts moving. This should set your in-car transmitter to your garage door opener. For Liftmaster, Sears, or Linear Megacode press and hold the in-car button you programmed until the garage opener light flashes. Your in-car is now programmed to operate your door.
