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

1 Answer

Garage door won't open.

I have a 1/2 HP Craftsman Garage Door Opener with a control pad in the garage, a key pad outside and an electronic eye at the opening. Also 2 remote openers in the cars. The system is excellent for opening the door and it works from all positions. The problem is with closing. I must hold the control pad in the garage down for the entire cycle to get the door to go down. If I release the pad, the door goes back up. The door will not go down from either vehicle or the key pad outside the door. Thus, I must stand in the garage to put the door down and then walk out the back door and around the house to get in the car. The opener is only 2 years old. I have replaced the control pad in the garagge but it made no difference. Please help.

The most common cause of this problem is the door sensors have been bumped and misaligned. They each have a small light that should be lit and not flickering. Tweak them until they are pointed at one another and the lights are lit.

All I want to do is to change my code on my outside key pad to my craftsman garage door opener key pad.


Here is what you do.

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 the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

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.

Garage door shuts down, need to press reset to get it to work


On the side of the opener you will find the down limit control. Turn this a bit in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. You will probably have to tweak it a bit to get it just right.

Garage door opened, won't close


If you can press and hold the wall button and the door will go down, you have a photo eye issue. Check the photo eyes at the bottom of the door.

Garage Door Key Pad


Assuming, from what I read, the remote works..The inside switch is just a doorbell switch which will wear out or have the contacts get bent or dirty. Take off wall, and change for new one or see if the contacts can be cleaned or adjusted. If the pad is electronic (coded) the wires may be bad or the control defective. Usually momentary contact of the two wires will cause the door to actuate.
