Chamberlain makes the Liftmaster, Chamberlain, and Craftsman openers. They all use the same type of remotes.

But the type has changed over the years and I can't tell from the Sears model number of the keypad.

Get the model of the opener from the opener. And look it up here.

They click on the remote used for that model.

Then look down the page and there be compatabile keypads.

Click on the Liftmaster/Chamberain/Sears and not the 3rd party.

Then click on instructions.

Here are the specifics of my equipment:

Wireless Keyless Operator Part#: 976LM / 976LMC

garage door opener part#: 41A5021-2C

I read the instructions for the keyless entry keypad but my garage door opener does not have a "Learn" Button. The only button it has is a red reset button also used to program the car garage door openers. My door opener located at the house entry does not have a space bar. It has the open button, a light button, and a lock button. I haven't had any luck as a result. I still need your assistance. Please advise. Thanks.

The opener does have a red POWER reset button. But that does not having anything to do with programing the remote.

Now the instructions for the remote mention an Orange Learn button.

The learn button is located near where the wires connect for the sensors and the wall control. There will be led beside it.

On some models you need to open of the light cover to get to it.

That is what is used when reprogamin the remote. Reset is not it's main function, but if you hold it down for a period of time (30 sec?) it does clear or reset the memory of all remotes.

It might be that Sears version of the button is a red and not orange, not sure.

The keypad instructions don't mention a Space Bar.

What they say is to HOLD the Enter button on keypad. Then, while still holding the keypad enter button press the Light Button on the wall control. Then while holding the first two, press the "Button" on the wall control. The Button is the large lighted button used to open the door.

But first put a new battery in the keybad.

Its me again and I have a question about the garage door opener located on the wall as you enter my house from the garage. The light continually blinks rapidly and since this has occured our wireless car garage door openers are not working. What is causing this? Please help. Thanks.

That indicates that the opener is in LOCK mode.

Push the lock button for 2 seconds.

I too have begun having a sporadic lock-mode activation problem.

It never used to happen; but, as of late it happens very regularly. And, we don't have an in-garage wall switch with the LOCK button on it at all.

I tried holding the only "door" bar on our wall panel for several extra seconds to see if this would turn on/off Lock mode; but, it does not.

Weird thing is that I can use a long rod to reach the open and press the program button and everything seems to go back to normal. I don't even have to re-learn the car remotes. Otherwise, it works fine.

It's a Sears Opener (Model: 41a4207-1), built in about 1993.

I have an email in to Chamberlain to see what they know. They're the mftr.

If anyone comes across a solution to this problem, please please let me know.

The replacement circuit board is $65-$75. Replacing the circuit board will become important for I just spent $50 to have new car remotes shipped to me, thinking that was the problem. They work great, except when the thingy goes lock-down on me.

I was able to fix this problem but did it so long ago that I don't remember what I did. I did a quick search and found this:

Hope it works for you.

where is the battery located in the keypad

I had to change out my garage door opener. I used the same size and type opener, a craftsman 1/2 HP opener. I used the existing wiring for the sensors and the wired opener. When I tried to program the remotes, they wouldn't take. I had a couple remotes that came with the unit, but no wireless pad. I tried to reprogram the existing pad and that wouldn't take as well. Is there anyway that this pad will work, or do I have to purchase a new pad?

I changed the battery in my keyless pad but it still does not work. It does not even light up when I press the buttons. Do I need a new keyless remote?

The info on the "LOCK" button on the keypad solved my problem. Thanks for having this site!

I don't have specifics at the moment but, I can't get my garage door keypad to work if I'm using the remote. It's either one or the other, both will not work at the same time. Garage door is Craftsman and bought at Sears. I have the manual and instructions and have never been able to get this to work.
