Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
Posted by Anonymous on
There is always the possibility that it has just quit but you can try programming it. 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 your 4 digit code and press enter.

Ben if it doesn't have a learn button then it's over 20 years old and your best bet is to buy a new one. Just because it worked fine for 3 years, doesn't mean that it is still good. Otherwise, it probably has one, you just haven't found it. If it's craftsman it is made by Chamberlain Group. There will be on the back or side a red, green, blue, or purple button. That is your learn button. If there is indeed no buttons then it is set by dip switches. Locate the 12, 18, or 24 dip switch bank. Set them to your desired, make sure that the keypad dip switches match exactly and it should work. If not, buy a new unit because it is probably really old and not safe anyway. Good luck.

Has any Tom, Dicke, or Hairy figured out yet what to do if your garage door opener is not apart of the millennium revolution of technology and DOES NOT have a "smart/learn buttom?" What the heck do I do? The little box that wires to the garage door opener and acts like a receiver for the keypad is USELESS. I can't figure what the hell to do. Please email me suggestions firstname.lastname@example.org I wish Craftsman made better quality electronics. (Stuff ALWAYS craps out on me when I don't have a cent to my name). :-(

As you may know by now there are keypads and then there are keypads. They must be made to work together as there are some that are not compatible. Posting your model numbers might help a little.

Don0930's answer is for the wireless keypad most folks have. My 1993 opener has a digit type keypad that is wired to the opener motor. See if yours is. It doesn't run on batteries but has a plug in transformer box to work. If you have one like mine, then you have an indoor button on a plastic box. You can lift the cover off that box, where it says "Sears digital solid state control" (pries off at the seam) and inside you will find a switch, with two positions, one is "program" and one is "operate". Flip it to program, enter your 4 digits, flip it to operate. Should do it. There is a place for a 9v battery under that same cover, it holds your code in a power failure. I think if you have a dead battery, and the unit loses power, it defaults to 1234.

1. Press the four buttons for your personal entry PIN, then press and hold the * button. The opener light will blink three times. Release the button.
2. Press the temporary 4 digit PIN you have chosen, then press ENTER. The opener will blink four times.
3. To set the number of hours this temporary PIN will work, press the number of hours (up to 255), then press *.
3. To set the number of times this temporary PIN will work, press the number of time (up to 255), then press #. The opener light will blink once when the temporary PIN has been learned.
Test by pressing the four buttons for the temporary PIN, then press Enter. The door should move. If the temporary PIN was set to a certain number of openings, remember that the test has used up one opening. To clear the temporary password, repeat steps 1-3, setting the number of hours or times to 0 in step 3.
