Garage Door Key Pad

My garage door opener key pad just stop working.

it will not open the garage door.

the keypad on the inside and the and the remote controls work. I have a craftsman garage door keypad model#139.53684 and occassionally in the past I would have jiggle the unit to get it to work. Now it just stopped working all together! When I try to reset the password, the keypad lights start flashing over and over, Am I destined to purchase a new one or is it fixable?

SOURCE: Keypad won't work anymore

Lets make sure you are programming it correctly, make sure the battery is new. Press and release the learn button on the motor. Within 30 seconds enter in the 4 digit code followed by the up/down button. The light bulb should flash once. If you can't get it to code in this way you will need to replace the keypad. Thanks BB

My wireless remote keypad stopped working. I changed the battery and it worked to get the garage door down but not up. The key pad is about 7 years old.


It sounds like your keypad is going bad and has a weak signal. It can operate the opener with the door open but with the door between it and the receiver it can't.

Key pad not working. Garage door will open with


I'm confused about the battery you replaced inside the garage but you can try programming the keypad just to see.

Locate the smart/learn button on the back of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release it and then walk over and key in your 4 digit code and press enter. If this doesn't work and you know the battery inside the keypad is good, you have a bad keypad.

The garage key pad has stopped working


The most common problem for your situation is that the battery in your wallmounted key pad needs to be replaced. unscrew the little screw on the face of the device, remove the battery and replace it with one just like it. Radio shack usually has these batteries

Key pad does not always open door


It sounds like the contacts on the keypad are going bad. A new opener with the wireless keypad is the answer.

Garage Door Key Pad


Assuming, from what I read, the remote works..The inside switch is just a doorbell switch which will wear out or have the contacts get bent or dirty. Take off wall, and change for new one or see if the contacts can be cleaned or adjusted. If the pad is electronic (coded) the wires may be bad or the control defective. Usually momentary contact of the two wires will cause the door to actuate.
