Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
I took it apart to replace the gears. Several wires came off unintentionally. Should have tagged the other wires but didn't. The wires in question are those on the two run capacitors and the motor itself.

I had the same frustrating dilemma with my Craftsman LiftMaster garage door and Keypad, Model 139.53754-01 (dated 10/06; and has the # 315 MHz).
To resolve “the dilemma”, grab your keypad, climb up on a ladder to access the garage door opener’s motor unit. On the right side of the motor unit, remove the white plastic casing by pressing buttons on each side and pulling down. This will expose the programming area, and for our purposes, the “Learn” button.
1. On the motor unit, press and release the “Learn” button. The Learn indicator light will glow steadily for 30 seconds.
2. Within 30 seconds, enter a four digit personal identification number (PIN) of your choice on the keypad. Then press and hold the ENTER button.
3. Release the ENTER button when the motor unit lights blink. The code has been “learned”/stored/activated.
Good Luck, and I Hope this Helps!

How to change an existing, known PIN
(Changing an existing PIN can be done with the wireless remote keypad, and does not require access of the motor unit.)
From the keypad:
1. Enter the four digits of the present PIN, then press and hold the # button. The opener light will blink twice. Release the # button.
2. Enter your new 4-digit PIN and press Enter. The motor unit lights will blink once when the PIN has been “learned”/stored/activated. Test by entering the new PIN, and pressing Enter.

The actual problem is after power on the opener, its initial state is uncertain. It may be in ready to close or ready to open state.
If the garage door is in closed position, likely the opener will still try to close it, because its initial state is uncertain. That's why you guys see it travels 2 seconds and reverse.
In order to fix this problem, after you power on the opener, do NOT hook up the chain, and do NOT mount the sprocket cap(so you can see the sprocket travel direction). While you watch carefully at the sprocket, press trigger button on remote control or ask someone press wall control button. Make sure the sprocket turns clockwise and stop. If the sprocket turns counterclockwise, press the control button again, so it will turn clockwise. Let it finish clockwise turn. At this moment, the opener is in ready to open state.
Cover sprocket cap and hook up chain. Mount door bracket and adjust. Your door must be in close position.
You are ready to go.

On the garage opener that actually opens the door the one on the
ceilling has a green or orange button that is called the learn button
just press and release it you have 30 seconds to punch in a 4 digit
code and when your done press and hold the enter button until the
lights on the garage open blink once or twice then just press the code
again and it will open the door press enter once to reverse the effect
and and twice to stop the door completely.
Hope that helps
