Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
Got the Chamberlain Professional garage door opener model 41BD002-2 & have to hold down button to close it until it goes all the way down. Tried moving sensor with orange light & it still won't change. Any other suggestions?
I HAVE AN OLDER SEARS CRAFTSMAN GARAGE DOOR OPENER AND I'M HAVING A SIMILAR PROBLEM. THE REMOTE WILL NOT ACTIVATE THE GARAGE DOOR (ALTHOUGH THE LITE COMES ON AND THE OPENER WILL MAKE A CLICK. HOWEVER IF I USE THE WALL MOUNTED OPENER INSIDE THE GARAGE, IT WILL OPEN IF YOU HOLD THE BUTTON IN. WITH ALL OF THIS, ONCE IT IS CLOSED IT WILL OPEN IF YOU PUSH THE BUTTON ON THE WALL. HELP!!!!!
PLEASE AND THANK YOU
That normally happens when the sensors aren't aligned. Both sensors have led lights on them the yellow/orange one will stay on all the time the green one will go out if it cant see the other sensor. Possibly theres a wire that's broken or the other sensor is really out of alignment. Check every inch of wiring from the sensor to the opener, remove wire nuts if present and check the connections. The wires that are used are small, solid and can break easily. Also see if there's a staple that's too tight, move the wire abit where it's stapled and look for damage.

Have similar problem. I just checked the wiring and removed some cobwebs and oiled the chain. The handheld worked fine. I still have to put this baby thru some more tests. Will update. Goodluck!
