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

1 Answer

Trying to add temporary code to craftsman keypad for Sears garage door opener.

I've followed instructions to add a temporary code (for our housekeeper) to my Craftsman keypad, but the unit just flashes and doesn't accept the temporary number. is there anything that i need to do to the actual garage door opener to add a temporary code? If that's the case, my wife will NEVER be able to manage the addition of the temporary code on a weekly basis. Anyone have advice on how to handle this? Thanks.

Tried to reprogram security code for outdoor key pad on 1/2hp craftsman garage door opener according to instructions online, pressed learn button- put in new 4 digit code-held enter. Lights did not flash...


Seems you've done everything right. Press and immediately release the smart/learn button and then walk over and key in a 4 digit code and press enter. If you are sure the battery in the keypad is good then I think your keypad is on the fritz or the wrong one for that opener.

I have a Sears Craftsman garage door opener - model # 139.18876 My kids have somehow managed to change the code to to keypad and I need to reprogram it, and I have NO idea how.


I'm not supposed to quote the competition:
But following link has do-it-yourself instructions for Craftsman.
I google searched: craftsman garage door keypad

Evidently yours is common problem, so if instructions work, let kids keep Christmas presents.

Keymaster Remote Pad does not reprogram The instructions say to type in my code, hold down zero, then press ENTER. The opener lights are supposed to flash but they don't. I've tried proceeding to enter...


Try it this way.

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.

THE KEYPAD NO LONGER ACCEPTS MY 4-DIGIT CODE. MUST HAVE HIT THE STAR KEY OR SOMETHING & ERASED IT. HOW CAN I RESET IT? THE INSTRUCTION ON THE PAD LET YOU CHANGE IT, BUT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT RESETTING...


If your battery is good and you have followed the instructions for changing it then your keypad is bad. The instructions for changing the code is the same as resetting it.

Refuses to accept code entry.Redlight does not flash on keypad despite a new battery.


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

Can not program both keypad & remote to operate at the same time


One of your units has reverted from "rolling code" to "billion code" and as you have found they will each work but will not work with each other. The problem is finding out which unit reverted. The most common one is the hand remote but that could be wrong.

Craftsman garage door keypad


The blinking on your keypad simply means that a code of some sort was sent. Whether it be the right on or not. Lets try to reprogram the unit. Press the colored learn button on the motor head and then within 30 seconds enter in the 4 digit code followed by the up/down action button. The light bulb should flash to let you know it has been accepted. Wait 5 minutes and try. If it does not work replace the keypad.
