Universal garage door remote

I bought a foreclosed house that did not come with a remote for the garage door. So I bought a universal garage door remote from Lowe's (a Chamberlain Clicker model #KLIK1U). It works a charm. However, now my neighbors can also open my garage door with their remote - I can't open theirs, but they can open mine. Any time they use their remote to open their garage, my garage door also opens. I've seen it happen, and they know happens too. They're good neighbors, so they always make sure my door is down when I'm obviously not home, but still, the situation is less than ideal. How do I fix this?

    It's a Chamberlain Clicker Model #KLIK1U.

    Sorry I should have been clearer. I need the manufacturer and model number of your door opener not the remote.

I have a feeling your neighbor operated their door opener when you were programming your new clicker. Try erasing the memory of your opener and then program the clicker again making sure your neighbors do not operate theirs at the same time. To erase the memory hold the smart/learn button in for 10 seconds.

Bought a universal remote for craftsman/sears garage door, now our neighbors can open our garage with there universal how do we stop this

I would go ahead and change the password on the remote and then I would REPROGRAM the remote with the garage door mechanism. It is supposed to have a rolling code. Perhaps your neighbor,s password is coincidentally the same as yours. Stranger things have happened. Below is a link to your instruction manual on-line.
Hope this helps,
Best Regards,

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.

If you didn't, try programming the remote this way.

Press and hold the button on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the motor unit. If this doesn't work you need to make sure you have the correct remote for the model opener you have. Your model number doesn't bring any results from Sears

My remote intermittenly opens/closes the garage door

You can find a free manual for your door opener at manualsonline .com You might want to look at how to program it and change the unit to a different frequency. You can sometimes get better response and eliminate interference. Also make sure your battery contacts in the remote are clean.

There are no fuses in the opener. Pull the logic board (the end where all the white wires go) and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board. This is not uncommon where there are electrical storms.
