The new keypads will be on a different radio frequency. Home Depot does sell a universal keypad made by the same manufacturer as your opener. It is model KLIK 2U and will work just fine.

It sounds like the keypad is not compatible with the main garage door. Make sure the keypad is the correct only for that model number opener. Older models will not work with newer openers and vice versa.

Keypad 976lm won't learn if other remotes are already "learned". Will only learn if memory is cleared and then standard remotes won't learn. Unit is a 1265LM Liftmaster.

It sounds like that keypad did not come with the opener but was an earlier model. Make sure the keypad is one that is listed as compatible with the opener.

The 'tow wire' has become disconnected from the

I think what you mean is the cable wore through where it attaches to the trolley. The only repair I know of is to replace the chain and cable as it comes as an assembly. If you have a Home Depot around you, they have a section that sells cable and fittings. You might be able to come up with a way to repair what you have.
