    This is a 973 LM garage door and remote, everything worked fine it is about 9 years old. The Sprocket shaft that turns the chain broke I replaced. Using the wall controll everything works fine but with the remotes (2) neither one will work anymore. I have replaced the battery and tried erasing the code and it will not accept the code I hold the button on the remote then press the learn button the LED light come on but the bulb light never acknowledges it and it never clicks and about 30 seconds later the LED light goes out. But the remotes still do not work. What can I do?

If you just bought this remote you may have the wrong one for your unit.

    It is important when you are programming this unit that you press the button on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button. If you hold the smart/learn button in it will erase the memory.

IS LIFTMASTER 973LM COMPATIBLE WITH SEAR-CRAFTMAN 139.53635SRT MODEL?


Yes and No. The 973LM is Security + and the Craftsman is Billion code. You can program one to work with the other but none of your other remotes will then work.

Check the sensors in the doorway. They must be pointed at one another and the small light on each one must be lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors.

Liftmaster 973LM. Remote opener does not work. Replaced battery - still does not work. Original owner left no manuals. Works with outside pad and inside button.


ONCE YOU REPLACE THE BATTERY YOU NEED TO REPROGAM THE REMOTE.

WATCH THE LED NEXT TO THE PROGRAM BUTTON WHILE YOU PRESS THE BUTTON ON THE REMOTE IF IT FLASHES THE REMOTE IS SENDING A SIGNAL AND SHOULD WORK.

IF IT DOESN'T FLASH THE REMOTE BATTERY MAY BE IN BACKWARDS OR THE REMOTE MAY BE BAD - IT IS NOT SENDING ANY SIGNAL AT ALL.

HOPE THIS HELPS
