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

3 Answers

No reponse when using the remote, the wall control works fine.

The wall control switch to close the garage works fine, but when i try to use the remote there is no response. Both my remotes went out at the same time. The light on the back of the motor just blinks. Tried changing batteries and everything on the remotes. Nothing helped. Any help would be appreciated.

One thing you might check is the electronic door stops. If they are not aligned or something is blocking the beam it will not let it travel at all. You might get flashing lights on the door opener or it might start for a second and stop.
With the wall switch if you hold the button in it should make the door move.

Hope it helps

Check them and make sure they are aligned. Then go from there for a fix.

The remotes use a receiver to actuate the door and the wall control does not. It sounds like your logic board is bad. Maybe a lightning storm recently? Try removing the board and look for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit.

SOUNDS LIKE SOMEONE MAY HAVE PRESSED THE LOCK / VACATIONS SWITCH ON YOUR WALL CONTROL. IF STILL NOT WORKING AND THE LED IN THE WALL SWITCH IS NOT FLASHING TRY AGAIN TO PROGRAM YOUR REMOTES.

Lift master formula I will not close, only goes half way down, but fully opens. Worked fine until my wife closed the door on the car, after that it would fully close


I had this problem as well with the door opening just fine but was not closing when using the remotes or when breifly pressing the wall mounted control. The door would close only when using the wired wall mount control. I have experienced this problem with other garage door openers I've had in my previous homes and it was always caused by sensors at the bottom of the door tracks being either misaligned or the lenses were dirty. In this case, and it was just a moment ago today, I simply cleaned the sensor lenses and then the door began to function properly. Give it a try.

It could be the garage door motor that is acting up. Try closing it with the button in the garage. If that's not the case, you may need a different garage door opener.

Sounds like a problem with the safety photocells, to confirm locate the where the safety input is on the opener and bridge out the terminals ( not the supply voltage terminals) if the door then closes the photocells are the problem.

The symptoms you give are exactly the way it is when the lock function is used. The wall control and the keypad will work but not the hand remotes. If holding the lock button for 3 seconds doesn't change it you should hold in the smart/learn button for 6 seconds. This will erase all remotes from memory and only the wall control will work. Now program it for the remotes and the keypad.

We have the same model and similar difficulties. We were told it's a bad antena. Not sure if there is anything we can do about this. Sometimes it works with the remotes, sometimes not. Always works with the wall switch, because that's wired.

It sounds like you have a problem with your wall button. I would remove the button from the wall and then disconnect the 2 wires on the back. Remember where they go as they are color coded. You can then momentarily touch the two wires together to check the operation. There isn't enough voltage there to bother you.

One thing to remember. If when the door reverses the main light flashes 10 times it is a door sensor problem and nothing else.

It sounds like the lock function has been toggled on. Press and hold the button on the wall control with the lock icon for 3 seconds. This will toggle that function off.
