Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

2 Answers

I have a Chamberlain Whisper Drive and it started beeping. Reading the manual, it seemed that I needed to replace the battery. It is about 5 years old. Replaced the battery and the LED is no longer red but yellow and the door won't open. We did open the door manually a couple of times with success while waiting on the battery to arrive. What can we try now? Is there a reset button? We haven't seen it yet.

This is battery related. On top of your unit is a battery pack with three colored led lights. You can tell what is going on by looking at these. This information is in your manual or here it is.
GREEN LED: All systems are normal. A solid LED light indicates the batteries are fully charged. A flashing LED indicates the batteries are being charged. NOTE: Batteries do not have to be fully charged to operate the motor unit. YELLOW LED: The motor unit has lost power and is operating off of the BBU. A solid LED with beep, sounding approximately every 2 seconds, indicates the motor unit is activating the door and is operating off of the BBU. A flashing LED with beep, sounding every 30 seconds, indicates batteries are low. Once the power is restored the BBU will recharge. This is indicated by a flashing GREEN LED. RED LED: An error has been detected and the BBU will automatically shut off. The BBU will attempt to restart by reconnecting to the batteries. If the error is still present it will shut itself off again. This process will repeat every 5 minutes or until the error has been resolved. This is used to prevent further draining of the batteries. If a red LED remains on when the power is restored, and is accompanied by a beep sounding every 30 seconds, please call for service.

On the back of the garage door opener there is a red button. Depress this button and sync your keypad to the opener. This will re-establish the code and reset the remote.

Opener is beeping


This is a problem with your battery back up. Check the manual for advice, but more than likely if the opener is running well and it is beeping the battery can't take a charge because of a faulty connection or failure. You can get replacement parts at chamberlain.com. Thanks BB

Chamberlain silent 3/4 hp red led on side and hear beeping sound garage door opens and closes, but the beeping sound is annoying? what is causing it


This beeping is actually the battery back up unit making this sound. It either means there is no power to the outlet and it is using stand by power or that something is wrong and the battery is not charging correctly or will not take a charge. You can order replacement parts at chamberlain.com. Thanks BB

Red LED light remains on and beep sound


My battery is bad. I knew it, but did not feel like it was worth any of my attention. The beeping started yesterday and this was worth my attention. Everyone in the family complained. I suspected it was the battery.

I unplugged the unit. Disconnected the battery. Waited for 30 seconds. Plugged it back in. It works fine and no beeping.

I suspect it is a warning to replace the battery.
