I need help programing my sears craftsman 1/2 horsepower remote.

It is model #139.53681B. For garage opener model 139.53672SRT3

Everything on the unit is working fine

sensor lights are inline and lights are a steady green. lighted push button opener works for up/down movement.overhead light operates on opening.Block the sensor and door will do what it is suppose to do for given function at time but the remote will not open or close the door. Put new batteries in, nothing. So I did the reprograming, and the steps the manual states will not work. Indicator light will light up but not blink and opener light will not flash.So I bought a new remote thinking it was a broken remote and it dose the same thing and will not program and work.

Is there something else I need to do to get this to work.

I am about ready to pull it out of the overhead and ask it how it likes me now.

The best that I can tell it is a Security+ system.

Here are the programing instructions for that type.

But it appears that the receiver is not working. On those units the receiver is part of the control board and replacement is about $75.

But you can buy a security+ separate receiver.

You might want to contract tech support at AAARemotes.

Note - Chamberlain makes the Chamerlain, Liftmaster, and Sears openers and they all use the same parts.

Note - I have no connection with AAAremotes and have not even ordered from them. But they have a great website with all kinds of information on compatibility and programing.

There are others.

This will find similar companies.

Thanks for the input.

I will be getting the new reciever,

not the sears one though.It is to much compared to ones in your link.

can you anwser another question for me.

It says in owner manual for the Liftmaster Universal Receiver #635ML,

which is what I will get, that you need to disconnect power to external


So I need to clip off component that feeds power to the receiver.Can I just unplug the power cord to unit and when I attach the universal remote use its power cord to operate the whole unit that way.Or will I need to use both power cords. It also says I can remove the tuning slug and antenna from receiver section.I do not know what they mean buy tuning slug. So I am not sure how to do it that way.

Since the existing receiver appears to not work I would just use the "erase" feature to kill and codes it might have it starts to work again.

I have taken a Secuitry+ opener apart to look at the control board to see where the tuning slug is or how to disable the receiver. The receiver part of the board will have a coil with a ferrite "set screw" which is used to tune it. That is the "slug".

The opener has to be plugged in as it supplies the power to the motor and sensor and manual controls.
