We just purchased a home that has a craftsman wireless keypad for the garage door opener. We would like to change the code but the previous owners did not leave the instructions. The keypad only has the digits 1-0 and "Enter". There are no "*" or "#" keys. If you know how to change the code, please help.

Firemansv - hi, you're going to need the manual for the garage door opener and possibly one for the wireless remote. If the opener is also a Crafsman, then you should find all the instructions you need in 1 manual. If the previous owner didn't leave the manual for you, get the complete model number of the opener and visit the S-ears website. If the website doesn't have the manual listed, you may need to call them to see how to get an out-of-print manual.

The different openers have different ways to reprogram...without listing a model number here, nobody can offer you much more help. Hopefully, though, the trip to the website will be productive and then you'll have a complete owner's manual. Good luck! Jim D/West Point, VA

After posting my question, I went to the help forums and found the answer. For my model, you need to press the green button on the gearbox beside the adjustment controls then, within 10 seconds, enter the new code on the keypad and then press enter. (I think I had to press enter twice.) Thanks for all the info!
