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

2 Answers

I have a Craftsman 1/2 hp garage door opener that is approx. 16 years old. I need to change the access code on the numeric key pad and have lost the paperwork with the instructions on how to do this. I want to keep the remote access the same and not mess with that. Can I get instruction on how to reprogram the numeric code?

    I must have a different model because there is no switch inside console. The only adjustments that can be made are on the unit suspended from the garage roof that houses the motor. Those adjustments are for adjusting door speed etc. Now what? I think there is a way tor reset from the numeric pad itself.

Disconnect the garage door opener and pry off console cover, this is the console inside the garage, move the little switch at top right to "PROGRAM",( RED LIGHT SHOULD BLINK ON THE OUTSIDE KEY PAD), input a ramdom four number code into the keypad, move the the switch back from "PROGRAM" to "OPERATE" reconnect opener and try the new code, repeat as necessary.

if u want the actual instruction sheet send me your email address and i will scan it and send u a copy, also if u have a fax number i can send it there as well.

Garage door won't open.


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.

First of all, did you try recoding unit by hitting LEARN BUTTON on motor. Try that. If n/g, try a new code with a number you did not use. Example, if old code was 5834, try 2222. If it works, one of the numer from you old code is worn out. Try new code or buy new pad.
