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

1 Answer

Just moved into a house w/ 1997 craftsman garage door opener. I purchased a new controller and have tried everything to make it work but it is still not working. I looked up the model # to make sure I ordered the right remote since this was the 4th one I've bought. I think somethings wrong w/the reciever. Dawn

You are most likely right. Just for the heck of it try programming the thing this way if you haven't already.

Press and hold the button on your remote while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the motor unit.

If this doesn't work then your receiver is bad.

It seems you have done everything right. I would return the universal remotes to Lowes and purchase the correct remote for the opener. There have been several people with universal remotes and this same problem.

Have your neighbor bring over his remote and open or close your door with it. Then hold the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds on your opener. Then see if he can open your door. He shouldn't be able to because that procedure erases the memory in your opener. No remotes should work. You need to get that remote #53778 back and program it and then see if your neighbor can open your door. If he can open your door at any point after you have held that button in for 6 seconds you need to get a new door opener.

If that keypad quit after working since 1997 and a new battery didn't get it going it has just gone bad. The model number listed for your opener is now 53876.

Older model keyless will not open new craftsman garage opener.


inside or on the back of the opener motor housing or sometimes on a remote receiver (an external box connected to the motor unit and a push button) is a set of switches ... if you take your opener apart you should also see a set of switches ... those have to be set the same way as the opener ... thats the code select ... make sure the battery is ok .. you can check with sears to see if your older remote is compatable ..

Lights on overhead unit on garage door opener will not go off


This is not too uncommon. What tripped the breaker in your house also got to one of the relays on the logic board of your opener. The only cure I know of is a new logic board.

Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door not running at all


DOES IT WORK FROM THE WALL BUTTON??

IF NOT YOU MAY HAVE A BAD CAPACITOR - UNPLUG THE UNIT TAKE OFF THE COVER AND LOOK FOR A ROUND TUBE THAT HAS 4 WIRES CONNECTED ON ONE END . IF IT IS LEAKING OIL OR HAS A BROWN OR BURNED LOOK ON THE CARDBOARD END WITH THE WIRES IT IS MOST LIKELY BAD.

SHOULD BE AVAILABLE FROM ANY MOTOR REPAIR SHOP

HOPE THIS HELPS
