Changing PIN on Key Pad

I do not have the manual for the opener. I went by the instructions on the lid of the outside Key Pad to change the PIN from the old one to a new one. The problem is, it did not cancel out the old one, now both numbers work to open and close the door...
How do I get rid of the old number?

Thank you,

OCBurruz

You need to reprogram the system please follow the instruction:

To re-set your code, please follow the steps outlined below:
1) Unplug your garage door opener from the electrical outlet.
2) Open the cover on your inside wall console. You should see a 9 Volt battery and an adjacent PROGRAM/OPERATEswitch. Slide the switch to PROGRAM.
3) Enter your new 4-digit code into the keypad outside.
4) Slide the switch back to OPERATE and replace the console cover.
5) Plug the garage door opener back in to the electrical outlet.
6) Test the new 4-digit code. (If the keypad does not illuminate, replace the 9 Volt battery)

How do I change the code on my outside touch pad?


  1. Press the four buttons for the present PIN, then press and hold the # button. The opener light will blink twice. Release the # button.



  1. Press the new 4-digit PIN you have chosen, then press ENTER. The motor unit lights will blink once when the PIN has been learned.


Test by pressing the new PIN then press ENTER. The door should move.

THE KEYPAD NO LONGER ACCEPTS MY 4-DIGIT CODE. MUST HAVE HIT THE STAR KEY OR SOMETHING & ERASED IT. HOW CAN I RESET IT? THE INSTRUCTION ON THE PAD LET YOU CHANGE IT, BUT SAYS NOTHING ABOUT RESETTING...


If your battery is good and you have followed the instructions for changing it then your keypad is bad. The instructions for changing the code is the same as resetting it.

Outside garage door key pad will not function in very cold weathe


Yes, that is an issue.  My suggestion is to replace the outside keyless with a wired keyless (Domino GD-1).  This will get your batteries inside so they can stay warm.

Garage door opener key pad not working


so i spent the better part of this morning trying to figure this same thing out... here's what I found.

You need to identify the serial number, which is found on the unit hanging from the ceiling... it will be like a 13953970. I found mine behind the lamp light protector thing. NOT the back with the stickers. 41A5021 is actually not the number that is important.

then go to www.managemyhome.com its a website ran by sears. you have to register, for free. then go look for manuals, in one of the tabs running across the top of the site is a choice for manuals. then search by Craftsman then enter the serial number.

then pull up the owners manual and check out the instructions.

** i found out that the old house i bought did not actually have the same keypad opener as came with the craftsman. so i had to closely inspect all sides of the internal keypad opener (not the one outside) and find another serial number. then i went and got the manual from www.managemyhome.com and realized i needed to add a new 9-V battery before I could proceed. So now i'm heading out to walmart to get that.

after a frusterating morning of service number and internet searches I hope after I get this damned battery the clouds will part and god will shine some luck on me.

goodluck to yourself!
