It sounds like your door sensors may not be aligned properly. Make sure they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit.

How do i change the numerical code?


How to change or program code on your Craftsman Liftmaster keyless keypad made by Chamberlain.

1. Program using the "Learn" Button

2.
Within 30 seconds, enter a four digit personal identification number (PIN) of your choice on the keypad. Then press and hold the ENTER button.

3. Release the button when the motor unit lights blink. It has learned the code. If light bulbs are not installed, two clicks will be heard.



Program using the Multi-Function Door Control

NOTE: This method requires two people if the Keyless Entry is already mounted outside the garage.

  1. Enter a four digit personal identification number (PIN) of your choice on the keypad. Then press and hold ENTER.
  2. While holding the ENTER button, press and hold the LIGHT button on the Multi-Function Door Control. Both of these should now be held down at the same time.
  3. Continue holding the ENTER and LIGHT buttons while you press the push bar on the Multi-Function Door Control (all three buttons are held).
  4. Release buttons when the motor unit lights blink. It has learned the code. If light bulbs are not installed, two clicks will be heard.


Change an Existing, Known PIN



If the existing PIN is known, it may be changed by one person without using a ladder.

  1. Press the four buttons for the present PIN, then press and hold the # button. The opener light will blink twice. Release the # button.
  2. Press the new 4-digit PIN you have chosen, then press ENTER.

The motor unit lights will blink once when the PIN has been learned.

Test by pressing the new PIN, then press ENTER. The door should move.




Your new Keyless Entry must be programmed to operate your garage door opener

Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

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.

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

You must hold that red button in for 6 seconds to erase the memory. Just remember you will have to program your hand remotes plus the wireless keypad.

Sears garage door keypad/remote programming problem


Hi All,

I had the same issue recently and here's what I found out (through a LOT of research) and the solution (yes, there is one!):

As described by many, when you can't get both the remote and the wireless pad to work together it means your garage door opener can accept both rolling code and billing code technology, BUT not at the same time. When you reset all codes (normally by pressing a button on the opener for a period of time e.g. 6 seconds or more), you erase all codes and remote "pairings". Then when you follow the manufacturer's procedure to pair again (which could be the wireless key pad first OR the remote first), the first pairing determines the technology for all subsequent pairings. Example: if your first pairing/programming was with the wireless keypad, and if it was rolling code technology (normally the case for newer models), then the garage opener will only recognize and accept rolling code for subsequent pairings. If your remote(s) are older (billion code technology) then the opener won't even recognize the signal (e.g. led won't blink when trying to pair/program).

And vice versa if you start with your remote after erasing all programming (then your keyless pad won't work).

But here is a potential workaround! For newer wireless keypads (e.g. clicker from chamberlain), you have an option to select the type of opener you are using as you do the initial password set up (normally indicated by a number e.g. 1 for models built after 1995, 2 for models built between 1997 and 2004, etc). Each choice is associated with a technology in the background (e.g. either rolling code or billion code). If you are programming your wireless keypad first after erasing all codes / programming, if you chose the "recommended" option for garage opener, chances are it will be rolling code and that means you won't be able to program your older remotes (billion code) after that. So how can you chose the option that will match your remote???

Here's what you do: start by pairing / programming your older remote first after erasing all codes / programs. That sets the technology (e.g. billion code). Then, go ahead and program your wireless keypad, but you may have to go through the process several times by trying the different options until you find one that works!

For me, I had to try 4 options before making it work. Options 1 through 3 (mind you, options #2 was the exact match for my garage door opener model but it would cause the problem discussed here e.g. wireless keypad would work but not the remotes) would not even be recognized by the opener in this procedure (LED would not blink), but it did work once I hit option 4.

I hope this will help you with your problem. Let me know if it's not clear. Cheers!
