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

1 Answer

I added a second door opener button by wiring a door bell switch to the back of the opener, in the same holes that the original door opener button are wired into. Both buttons worked after initial install. seemed too easy. Now after a couple of hours have passed neither door opener button works. The opener in my cars DO work. Any ideas?

I would remove the second door button and see if it returns to normal. There could also be a problem if you installed a 'lighted' door bell button.

When our neighbour's wireless bell is rung our wireless bell rings as well


Open up the back of your bell and the back of your button. There should be switches you can move. Just move them the same on the button and the bell. This will make it so yours doesn't ring when theirs does.

Drivers-side rear door won't engage-interior bell chimes constantly


Make sure the rear cargo lid is shut. Then if it still appears to be the door, then remove the jam switch in the door sill. The switches usually separate the wires when the door closes. You do not want to lose the wiring inside the doorjam and you do not want to leave a hole open either.
Tie a string on the wiring and/or tape the wiring to the doorjam until you can get a new switch. Tape the wire ends to prevet shorting.

Ensure that your electric eyes are aligned.
Disconnect the opener from the door and run the door down & up by hand. Does it move smoothly?
Most openers only require momentary contact to get them to open or close.

How do i fix my doorbell


99% of the time, you need a new doorbell button
Also check if any circuit breakers are tripped
Check GFI breakers in baths and kitchen

Real-estate lady answer: buy a new doorbell button and connect 2 wires on back of new button.
Doorbells are low voltage and not dangerous.
If screws are loose in the holes, break off toothpicks in hole so screws have something to bite.
You need small screwdriver:

Repairman answer
Doorbell problems have 3 parts
1) The button
2) The chime or bell located in house
3) The 12V or 24V transformer located in attic or basement
4) rarely the wiring because it's low voltage and does not get hot

1) start at the button.
Remove button from wall
There are two LOW-voltage wires on back of button
Remove 1 wire and touch other wire, copper to copper
Does doorbell ring? Do you see a spark?
If bell rings, then button is bad

2) Chime or bell doesn't ring when button wires are crossed
Take cover off chime
The button works, so have helper push button while you're looking at chime
Can you hear any noise? Have helper push button on-and-off
Chimes have 2 or 3 wires >>> 2 wires if only front door has button, 3 wires if back door also has button
Take one wire loose and scratch it across each of the other wires
Remember front button is held down (or front button wires are twisted together)
Can you see a spark when wires are scratched together?
Try this with more than one wire ... but don't mix up location of each wire
If you are getting a spark, then chime is getting power, but it's not working
Replace chime

3) Transformer in attic or basement looks similar to this:
f6ff230.jpg
Use a wire and scratch across both screws to see if you get a spark
If you get a spark ... and the crossed wires dont ring the chime... and there is no spark at chime, then there is a bad wire
If no spark at transformer, then check circuit breaker
At last resort, but new transformer at Home depot in the doorbell section near light department
