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

1 Answer

Garage door remote does not open door

I have a Sears Best 1/2 HP Garage Door Opener. The wall mount remote has a continuously blinking red light but it does open the door. The remote light will turn on when the button is pushed but it will not open the door. Battery was changed and still the same thing happens. We just moved in a week ago and have side by side doors and the other one has a wireless keypad that is functioning well. Appreciate any help

I think you'll need to reset the wireless connection. Try pushing the button on the machine, then something on the pad. (or vise versa)

SOURCE: wiring the opener and sensors

The wall button gets the red and white wire. The safety eyes use the black and white wires. There are two types of attachments on the back of the openers. One has three screws. On this type the 1 is for the red wire, the 2 is for all white wires, and the 3 is for all black wires. The other type has four blocks and you just match the color to the wire color.

To reset the keypad you have to also reset all the remotes. on the back of your opener there is a square button, press and hold the button untill the lcd light turned off then press the button once and press your remote buttons repet untill all the remotes are set. Then press the button place your code on the keypad and press and hold enter untill you hear a click or the lights flashing and your set.

SOURCE: Programming kepad for Sears Craftsman Garagedoor opener 1/2 hp

The only procedure I have ever followed is to press the learn button and then enter the code, and not do anything else. I think your last step of holding the button until the light goes out is clearing codes as fast as you enter them. Just stop after you enter your code and let the learn mode time out on its own. That should do it.

And don't put your head through the wall. It just causes more headaches.

SOURCE: My keypad works,my remote opener does not, even

It is related. One of the buttons on your wall control is the lock button and has a lock icon on it. Press and hold it for 3 seconds. The blinking should stop and your remote should now work.

Check your door sensors. They have probably been bumped. Tweak them until they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking.
