The odds are the keypad will not work with your new opener. The radio frequency has been changed on the new openers. But if you want to try you just press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the motor unit and then walk over to the keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter. These instructions are for a wireless keypad.

How do I reset my keyless entry?


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.

We tried to program an old chamberlain remote to our new craftsman opener through the door console--now the door console does not work--we reprogrammed the keyless entry and car remotes with the main unit...


The door control does not require programming. Make sure one of the wires hasn't come loose and also try loosening the top screw on the door control. If it is too tight it can cause a problem.

Hold the button down on your remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.

Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over to your keypad and key in your 4 digit code and press enter.

The key to this is to immediately release the smart/learn button. If you hold it in you will erase what you just did. If you still have a problem please post back.

Trouble with programing garage remotes and keyless entry pad


Either the keypad is the wrong model for your opener or it has reverted to an earlier technology and needs to be replaced. It is important that you get the model number off your motor unit so you can be sure you get the right keypad for your opener.

Only Keyless entry or remotes can be programmed but not both


If you can program your remotes but when you program your keypad the remotes quit working and vice versa you have either the wrong keypad or it has reverted to an earlier technology. Make sure the keypad is for your specific model door opener.

Programing remote for a chamberlain liftmaster


Try this. Press and hold the smart/learn button for 6 seconds. This will erase everything from its memory. Now press and hold the button on one of your remotes while you press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote.

Find the model number for your opener. It will start with 139. Check to make sure you have the correct keypad. There are several models and the wrong ones will cause the problem you have.

Sears craftsman keyless entry for model 139.53684


If I am correct, there is a green button on the opener. Hold that down until it stop blinki ng. Once it has, pres the opener. It should read the code and work the next time you hit the opener remote.
If not, sorry. This has worked for me
