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

1 Answer

Same problem same day

I may have been hit by the same storm. My opener is not working after a storm on the same day. The button to push in the garage to open it is not working, and it is not lit up. None of the remotes are working either. The electrical outlet that it is plugged into is working fine with no sign of damage. I was wondering if there was a reset switch on the opener somewhere or am I to assume it is the board?

Also, how can I prevent this in the future?

Thank you in advance!

Unfortunately there isn't a reset switch but I would pull the logic board and look for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board. Electronics do not like lightning.

If when the door reverses the main light flashes 10 times you have a problem with the door sensors. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. They must be pointed at one another for both lights to be on. If you cannot get the lights to come on you have a bad logic board.

My Craftsman Garage Door opener stopped working.


The most common part to go bad in these openers when lighting hits them is the logic board. Look for a white and black label that has your model number on it. Go to http://www.usdoorcontrol.com/manufacturers-other.html and find the newest revision board that is made. Repairing this problem is easy.

Craftsman Garage Door Opener won't work after storm


Check to see if the trolley (the part that slides back and forth on the rail and is connected to the door) is jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If so, remove the bolt and run the door until it is closed. On the side of the motor unit there is an 'up limit' control. Turn this 3 turns in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover. Be sure to replace the bolt.

Remotes don't work (3)


Did you inadvertantly hit the "vacation lock" button on the Mounted push button? This will cause the remotes not to work. Try hitting the button again, and then see if the blinking goes to solid green.

Good Luck
