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

1 Answer

Sears / craftsman (1995) wall mount switched just quit working.

I just bought this house and the switched worked for a week then quit working. I noticed the remote has a lock button on it and wonder if it some how got pushed. The remotes work fine so I'm not sure what I did wrong. I also bought a wireless key pad that you mount outside that I can not get to program. Any suggestions? the remotes are 9 pin and the remote states its from canida.

    The opener I bought says it will work with all brands including mine. It is Chamberlain Clicker Universal Keyless Entry Model KLIK2U. My garage is a 1995 Craftsman liftmaster (canadian) with 9 pin remotes. I've followed the progaming instructions and have had no luck.

I have a wall mounted Craftsman Premium Control Console with a motion detection sensor to turn the door opener light on when I enter the garage. Will it work with a new Sears Garage Door Opener?

Look at the manual that came with your new opener. If there is a wire that is denoted "garage opener light" then yes it should work. Craftsman Control Console Premium
The description says for Sears Garage Openers since 1995.

Either the wall control itself has quit or the wiring to it is bad. You can remove the control from the wall and remove the two wires. Momentarily short them together and if the operator works you know the wall control is bad.

On the remotes put switch #1 in either position and match up switches 2 through 10 to the dipswitches on the motor unit. There is a good possibility your receiver has quit working.

The 3 flash error code is "Door control or wire shorted". Try disconnecting the wall control for a time and see if your problem quits. If you used staples on the wiring make sure they did not cut the insulation.

Remote to garage door opener wont work no solution on fixya

The Clicker is a hard one to program. You might try it a couple more times to be sure it won't work.
The 61LM is the Liftmaster remote that goes with that unit. There is a possiblity that the reciever on the board is bad. That board is no longer available but you can get a 635LM external reciever that is backward compatable with the 61LM remote.
