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

1 Answer

Only one remote programs

I have a Sears HBW1127 garage door opener. I have two remotes but can only get one to program.. I tried pushing the buttoms together that didn't work either. I also bought a clicker compatible to the existing remotes and even with those only one will program.

How do I get two remotes to work for the opener?

It is really important to that you have the correct remotes for your opener. The model number is on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

How so I program the two together? Struggling here

If the opener have the same color learn buttons you can program them on the same remotes using different buttons. If the learn buttons are different then you will have to get universal remote like a clicker to program them. You can get one at most hardware stores.

Garage door opener remotes

If you go into the actual unit (on the ceiling) you will see the "code" of the opener. You then program the inside of the remote(s) (take them apart) to match what the actual opener is. Or you can look at the one that works and make the other(s) match that. It is a series of little toggles.

Now go back to your car and press and hold the Homelink button. You will see the lights on your opener flash. Now your Homelink button should operate your garage door.

Door opener remotes not opening garage door.

You have to sync the remotes to the new code. For older remotes, you can open the remote and match the pin settings.

For newer remotes there's a button that you push in the back of the opener that sets in program mode (for Chamberlain). When you push the remote button, it will acknowledge the remote is programmed.

If this doesn't help, comment back on your particular model and we'll help you with the solution.

didnt try everything cause if you did, it would work! Get two people and garage door opener. One read manual from car under Garage door" or Homelink while other pushes button. When manual says if this did not work or if you have security plus or rolling code, continue with other instructions. You will need a working remote and will need to pushh learn button on motor logic board.
