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

1 Answer

My Liftmaster remoter sensors do not light up any longer. No work has been done that would have bothered the wiring from floor to ceiling. I installed a new pair of sensors and they did not light up as described in the brochure. Could the problem be in the opener itself? The remote and the wall mount both result in the light flashing 10 times and not opening.

Make sure the solid white wire from each door sensor is attached to terminal #2 and the white wire with the black tracer is attached to terminal #3.

The solid white wire from the wall control goes to terminal #2 and the white wire with the red tracer goes to terminal #1.

If the green light in the wall control is blinking press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds.

You need to eliminate the possibility of a broken or shorted wire to the sensors even though no work has been done. It is possible a staple could have worn through the insulation due to vibration. It could be the opener itself but that is the last resort.

Chamberlain 102-1499A Opens w/ remote. Will not close w/remote.


If when you try to close the door the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position you have a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have a bad sensor.

I need to install a ceiling fan in a room where there is no lighting fixture, only a switch that controls floor lamps


If you have wiring experience it can be done, if not I recommend picking up a do-it-yourself wiring book from home depot or other home improvement store. To make your job easy you can run your fan and the floor lamps off that switch as the fan does not use that much power. You will also need access about the ceiling to put up a fan box to hold the fan otherwise you need to pull some ceiling down; enough to go from joist to joist to put in the box. The fan box you need to get is a Westinghouse fan box capable of holding at least 50lbs. Then all you need to do is run your wires and attach your fan.

Hunter fan wiring


sounds like one of your connections is loose. Im not sure if i completely understand your description of how you re-hoked up your fan. Please tell me how many wires your fan has and colors and how many wires you have on the sensor remote. (lots of times if you draw a wiring diagram on paper you can figure it out) Basically you should have power coming from ceiling to remote sensor. Then the remote sensor should throw the power to either the fan or the light, so there should be two seperate leads coming out of the remote sensor to control either the fan or the light independantly.

Most likely one of your door sensors has been bumped and is misaligned. Check to see that the small light on each sensor is lit. The only thing that will cause the main light to flash 10 times when the door reverses is the sensors or the wiring to them. They must be pointed at one another for both lights to be on.

Garage door will not close


HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.

ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?

Hampton Bay Ceiling Fan Windward II


There is a 4 position (dip) switch on both the fan housing and the remote. Make sure these switches are set exactly the same and the remote will control the light and fan separately. If not, the remote may be getting interference on the preset frequency - try CHANGING the dip switches to a different setting and the remote should work.

Wiring a ceiling fan with a remote sensor


since you have a remote, you don't need that extra wiring for the light/fan. just wire nut it off.
the switch at wall has 2 switches but only one will work now.
