Your keypad has lost signal strength. The door cuts the signal down even further and causes the problem. A new keypad will fix your problem.

Chamberlain whisper drive code change keypad


Usually, that is a feature built into the keypad itself for convenience and cannot be changed.. When the door is closed, the keypad should go inactive after 15-30 seconds - requiring you to enter the code again to open.

I have a Chamberlain Liftmaster Professional 1/3 hp garage door opener. I'm unable to find the model number, but it was made in April 2004 and has an orange learn button. It has been working fine since...


Do you mean the numeric keypad is no longer controlling the garage door? If so, have you changed the battery for the keypad? Frequently, if the battery is low, the keypad will stop working when the door is closed but works to close an open door. On most Chamberlain garage door openers, this is a 9V battery. You may need a small Philips screw driver to open the battery compartment at the bottom of the keypad.

After changing the battery, try the learn code procedure again. I've found it easiest to have two people involved when programming the keypad to the garage door opener. One handles the Learn button and the other types in the desired code.

I hope this helps.

Hi my remote works the wall button works but the keyless keypad will close the door when code is entered but it won't open it


It sounds like the keypad has lost signal strength. Make sure the battery is good. If it acts the same way with a good battery you will have to replace the keypad.

Can enter code on keypad to lower garage door, however keypad just "flashes" when code is entered to raise door


If your other remotes are working normally I would suspect first of all a weak battery in the keypad. Secondly the keypad could be getting weak and the closed door blocks enough of the signal to cause your problem. An open door lets the signal through. Normally during the time the keypad is flashing you can hit 'enter' again to reverse the door if it is closing or stop the door if it is opening.

Try changing the battery and reprogam the keypad. The code remains active for about 30 sec. after it is entered into the keypad which allows you to press enter to change direction of the door

Garage door keypad & remote


You need to sync both. I have a LiftMaster. If you want to change the code on your keypad you need to open up the garage door motor compartment where the light is (mine is in the back). Press the learn button, within 30 seconds enter the new code on your keypad and hold down the enter button for several seconds until the light on the opener blinks to tell you it has learned the code. Test the new code to see if it works. If the new keypad code works, then try the remote. My remote will not work after I reprogram the keypad. If the remote does not work (check battery) then climb back up the ladder and press the learn button on the garage door motor again, press the remote button and hold down until the light blinks again and the opener has learned the new code. This process works when I need to sync my remote and keypad. Good luck, I hope this helps.
