Your opener is very old and I'm positive you can no longer get the remotes. You might look into one of these.

Craftsman - Model #00953751000



It is a universal remote and receiver that operates on the new frequency and has the rolling code feature.

You don't need the original switch positions. Make sure the row of switches in the motor unit are set exactly the way the remote is. The switches are normally marked + 0 -. Move all of them to the plus sign and try.

The dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. They all come with the same default setup of the dip switches (all in the "on" position and therefore they are all on the same radio frequency). That's fine unless there is a similar remote control fan nearby. So a remote might talk to several new fans if they are similar brand or same remote etc on the default dip switch settings and therefore same radio frequency. It's up to you to change the dip switches if you need to. You need to. They give you the ability to change the frequency so you don't control a similar fan down the hall, upstairs etc , while also controlling the one in the room that you intended to control ie your problem. As long as the remote and the fan match, they will talk to each other. So you have to change the dip switches on one of the remotes and the fan you are using that remote on to something different, but matching. There are usually four dip switches, usually all in the "on" position. So, for example, change the first dip switch to off on the remote and do the same to the fan - turn first dip switch off. You'll probably have to take the fan down and take off the top to get at the dip switches. That should fix the problem.

Remote Control Problem


I had this problem. One day everything worked. The next day the fan ran at 1 speed and the remote didn't turn on the light, change fan speed, nothing. I changed batteries on the remote - no good. As you should know, the dip switches on the remote and on the fan have to match - which makes the remote and the fan on the same radio frequency so they can talk to each other. (They let you change radio frequency so that you don't control a similar fan down the hall as well as the one in the room that you intended to control.) Anyway, come to find out from the fan guy at Home Depot that sometime the dip switches on the fan "fall" out of place leaving the remote unable to talk to the fan. Sounded crazy, but sure enough one of the dip switches on the fan wasn't tightly in place. Once all the dip switches were tightly in place (with the fan dip switches matching the remote dip switches) everything ran fine. To change the dip switches on my fan that meant uninstalling the fan from the ceiling and taking the big top cover off to expose the dip switches.
