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

1 Answer

I have a Model 2000 Chamberlain 1/3HP garage door opener manufactured 02/91 with a round yellow "learn" button, lost remote. Bought a replacement chamberlain remote, Model 956 which is supposed to be compatible with Chamberlains made prior to 2005. But the programming instructions refer to a square orange-colored "learn" button. Any way the replacement remote won't "learn". Any suggestions..?

If the learn button is 'amber' the model 956 remote should work with it. Try this method for programming just in case your aren't.

Hold the button down on the remote while your press and immediately release the learn button. Main light should flash.

There is always the possibility that the receiver has quit working.

How do I change the code on my garage door opener. Have one and lost one.


Press an hold the learn button on the garage door opener for 10 seconds. You will notice an amber LED either next to or above the learn button. When the LED goes out the anything that was previously programed will be deleted. Now press and release the learn button once the amber LED will come on steady. Now press the button on the garage door opener you want to program to the garage door opener. You will hear a click and the light bulb on the garage door opener will go off and come back on. Your garage door opener remote is now programed with a new code.

Have your neighbor bring over his remote and open or close your door with it. Then hold the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds on your opener. Then see if he can open your door. He shouldn't be able to because that procedure erases the memory in your opener. No remotes should work. You need to get that remote #53778 back and program it and then see if your neighbor can open your door. If he can open your door at any point after you have held that button in for 6 seconds you need to get a new door opener.

This web address came from the Chamberlain site. I also needed to relearn my remotes due to a newer car that has a built in garage door opener that needed to be set. I also needed to reset my keypad remote, those instructions I was able to get from the same site. Good Luck
