I have a double car garage but one of the garage doors won't work with the remote, on top of that the outside keypad won't work for that door either (it works for the other one fine, and did work previously, but now doesn't recognize the password). So two problems, i need to get the password working so i can manually enter on the outside keypad to open the door, and secondly i need to get my remote working for that door. The other door and remote work fine, i have changed the baterry on the outside keypad also, and it lights up. i also changed the battery on the remote. The previous owners said they never used them, it's a 2001 home.

That link is good, but there is something flaky about the site, Often you need to try it several times.

But here is a another link.

Chamberlain make the Sears, Chamberlain, Liftmaster units and they all work the same.

"it's a Craftsman 1/2 HP"

That is not a model number.

The model number will be in the form of 139.5xxxx

Power to the unit but the chain won't travel. Moves freely but won't open or close door.

The problem I seem to be having is that the door operates normally under no-load conditions but as soon as I attach the door, the door will only go down a couple inches and stop.

You can change your door or you can also consult to a good organization that help you to select the proper door. If you need some ideas, read at

I have a craftsman139.53985 door , when I press the wall button door moves up short way, stops and all lights go out.
A while later lights are on and goes down a little and lights go out.
