Most wall buttons get power supplied from the logic board, it may be failing.unplug the operator for two minutes and replug in the power, see if that helps

If you are talking about wall mounted switch, yes it has a battery. Refer to your instructions that came with GDO, or google the wall mounted switch by model number for more info.

    They do fail, I've replaced remotes for GDO before. You can buy wall control at Home Depot or Lowe's. You can order from amazon.Since it is Craftsman , Chamberlain made it , use their model number. You could try reprogramming the opener. Monday you could call Chamberlain help center for fee help. Good Luck

SOURCE: garage door remote won't open the garage door

The little button with a padlock on the wall control is a "vacation" lockout feature that disables the remotes. There should be a small LED on the wall control that is always on steady. When the padlock button is pressed and released the LED should be constantly blinking (indicating the vacation lockout mode is active) and your remotes should be disabled. The wall control will still operate the door. Pushing the padlock button again should make the LED stop blinking and restore the door to normal operation.

SOURCE: Chamberlain garage door opener unit-is it compatible with craftsman keypad?

Hello,Linda well this is your lucky day ,I have installed garage door openers for sears for 10 years and i can tell you that craftsman,chamberlain ,and liftmaster are all the same machine and manufactured under the liftmaster name , if you buy it from home depot it will be a chamberlain ,if you buy it at sears ,it will be a craftsman, and if you go to commercial building supplier it will be a liftmaster! now getting that out of the way even though they are all compatible ,there is one thing that stands in their way and that,s time ,For example if your chamberlain machine is 5 years old and you went to sears last week ,the chances of the frequency being the same are not good , most likely you have the wireless keypad , one way to test the sears keypad against the chamberlain machine is to locate the smart button on your machine ,this button allows for programming of remotes and keypads , to test and see exactly what im talking about take your remote and locate the smart button ,if you have three buttons on the remote press one of the buttons that are not being used on the remote ,above the smart button their will be a blinking light ,if you press your remote button you will notice the light go from a blink to a rapid flash , This is telling you that you are sending a signal for programming to the machine , well the keypad is exactly the same all you have to do is push the enter button on the keypad and have someone watch for the rapid blinking light ,if they are compatible the light will blink rapidly on the machine so all you have to do now is have someone press the smart button once on the machine your indicator light will now be a solid light you will have approx 60 seconds then to put a 4 digit code in the keypad and then press and hold down the enter button on the keypad , at this point you will notice the lightbulbs on the chamberlain machine to shut off and come back on this is to tell you that the machine accepted the code , after thats been done you can use your keypad , you can also find the owners manual to the chamberlain and follow the same instructions to programming the remote , they are identical in programing , if your keypad is not the same frequency you can also tell by looking at the frequency code on the backside of the keypad and also the chamberlain unit usually where the light bulb is will be its code

How do I change the code on my garage door opener. Have one and lost one.


Press an hold the learn button on the garage door opener for 10 seconds. You will notice an amber LED either next to or above the learn button. When the LED goes out the anything that was previously programed will be deleted. Now press and release the learn button once the amber LED will come on steady. Now press the button on the garage door opener you want to program to the garage door opener. You will hear a click and the light bulb on the garage door opener will go off and come back on. Your garage door opener remote is now programed with a new code.

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

HOw do I program my Chamberlain 953CB remote with my chamberlain power drive garage door opener?


First make sure there is a new battery in the remote. Then press and release the colored learn button on the motor head. Then press the button on the remote. The light bulb should flash to let you know the code has been received. If the remote does not work after this either the remote or the logic board in the motor unit needs replaced. Thanks BB

If the wall button will operate the door up but none of the devices do then look at the wall button. Find the lock button and push it for 2 seconds and then try the remotes again. This is your vacation lock. You can get a manual at chamberlain.com. Now if the door does not open or close with the remotes you can reprogram them. Press the colored learn button on the motor head and then press the button on the remote. Repeat for each remote. If they fail to program you will need a new logic board. Thanks BB

Change keyless entry passcode for chamberlain model 4100 door opener


You have to press a Yellow/Purple button on the back of the garage door opener unit.
It is the LEARN button. Then enter a new four digit code into the keypad and press the enter button.
The unit should click and the lights should flash. This acknowledges it has learned the new code.
