I recently purchased a Universal Remote Control Conversion Kit for my garage door. IT is a 100 Billion Code Rolling system receiver with two remote system made by Craftsman. The model # is 139.53683

After following the instructions to install and to recode the transmitters, I was able to successfully use the remote from within my garage.

But the effective range is only about 10 feet!!!!

The remote does not work from 15 feet - just outside my garage with the door shut. It works just fine when I am less than 10 feet away with no obstructions in between.

The gigantic ONE-PAGE manual that came with the system does not state anything about extending the range / power output of the remote or increasing the amplification of the signal received on the receiver unit.

Does anyone have an idea as to how I can get remedy the situation?

Look and see if there is a separate wire several inches long. If so that is the antenna and needs to be extended so that it is straight.

I have no remotes for this sears 139.53683 received. After searching for them used online I am not sure what to order. I want to insure I get the correct remote for my receiver.
It has a white learn or program button inside.
I know there are lift master and Chamberlain units which may work also. Any suggestions?
