Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
I have a Lift Master 1160. It opens when my neighbors open their garage. I can't find anyway to cancel out the programming. Is it possible to change it.
To erase the memory press and hold the smart/learn button on the back of the motor unit for 10 seconds. This will stop any remote or keypad from opening your door. To program it press and hold the button on your remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. Do this for each remote you have.

I don't know if your model is exactly like mine but on the opener itself you should have a learn button. It could be green,red,orange, blue and you might even have to remove a light cover to access it. Mine is on the rear of the unit along with all the up and down adjustments. On my opener it has the directions on how to program the units together but you either press and hold the button on the opener then press and hold the button on the transmitter then the openers light will flash and when it does you release both buttons. I know on other models such as my moms you just have to press the button once on the opener and then on the transmitter you press and hold the button until the light on the opener flashes and you hear a clicking noise , then you release the transmitter button and that's it. Give it a try and hope this was a little helpful to you!

I have model 1160 with a yellow smart button. Depressing and holding the button down does not erase the memory. What did work was unplugging the receiver for a couple of hours. When I reconnected power the light bulbs came on. I operated my remote and the door opened. I then operated the wired wall console until the llight bulbs went off. (May just be that 30 seconds elapsed and the receiver exited learn mode). Door no longer has problem that it opens when a neighbour uses his remote.
