Garage door opener remotes

I purchased a home with a Sears HBW1255 139.53681B I have two remotes but can only get one to program.. I tried pushing the buttoms together that didn't work either. I also bought a clicker compatible to the existing remotes and even with those only one will program.

How do I get two remotes to work for the opener?

    I have a Sears Model 139.53954 purchased in late 03. Recently replaced safety sensor lights. Having replaced the sensor lights I can now only get it to program to 1 remote. If a program to 1 it will not program to a second, if I clear and program to second it will not program to first.



    I purchased new 3rd party remotes, Chamberlain Clicker Universal Remote Control, KLIK1U, rather pricey, and have the same problem.



    My opener programs by button not dip switch.

    I have this same exact issue. Moved into a house with an existing Sears garage door opener, and I can get either remote to program by itself, but I can't get both to work at the same time

    I have a Sears HBW1127 Garage door opener with 2 remotes HBW1255. I have replaced batteries in both. Each will program individually but I cannot get them both to program together. How do I program 2 remotes to one opener?

Guest- You opener is locked. Hold down the lock button on the wall control for 3 sec. and it will unlock the opener.

I had the same problem and found a very simple solution. There is a small metal tab on the back cover (where the battery mounts) that should contact a small metal area on the circuit board. I bent the tab up slightly and my remote now works.

I really need your help. My Craftsman unit model number is 139.53615SR manufactured 1/92. I have a three car garage. The original two remote controls were lost and since then I've used the setting in my...


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.

Is there a univeral remote for craftsman garage door openers?


Depends on the age of the opener. The model number is on the end of the opener closest to the door. Using it go to Sears parts and you can find out if the remote is still available.

Garage door opener remotes


If you go into the actual unit (on the ceiling) you will see the "code" of the opener. You then program the inside of the remote(s) (take them apart) to match what the actual opener is. Or you can look at the one that works and make the other(s) match that. It is a series of little toggles.

Grage door blinking yellow, click and won't open with anything.


TRY RESETTING THE UNIT BY UNPLUGGING IT FOR ABOUT 5 MIN.

IF WHEN YOU PLUG IT IN THE REMOTES STILL DON'T WORK TRY TO REPROGRAM THEM.
IF STILL HAVING TROUBLE--
COUNT THE FLASHES - GOTO LIFTMASTER.COM DOWNLOAD A FREE PDF FOR A SIMILAR UNIT (THE MODEL NUMBERS ARE DIFFERENT BUT THE CODES ARE THE SAME).
HOPE THIS HELPS
