Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
Remote control unit does not open the door. we have 2 doors with same 1/2 HP opener. the remote has 3 buttons. the big button does not open either door, the middle button opens one. we have 3 remotes and all 3 can open and close the one side. the door works fine mecahnically when puhing the button on the wall. so we know the door works. can't get the remote to work?? help. Thanks.
You can try reprogramming the remotes to the opener that is not working. Sometimes they get a brain freeze and drop the codes and reprogramming can fix it. Next to where the wire hangs down will be a colored square button (the learn button) press once and release, you have 30 seconds to try and program a remote, you don't need to do all in the 30 seconds. Press and hold the button on your remote that you want to use until you see the light on the opener blink or hear a click sound from opener, let go of the button. it should now be programmed. If you can't get any of them to work then the logic board is bad.This repair can cost as much as a new opener + install. Sears sells a "remote control conversion kit" it comes with 1 remote and a plug in receiver you attach to your existing opener. 2 wires come off it and hooks up where your wall control hooks up at the openr.It's pretty easy to install. FYI the remote controls are color coordinated meaning the buttons on the remotes have to be the same color or they won't work, so if existing remotes are not the same color as the one in the kit they will most likely have to be replaced. good luck!
