2 Openers but remotes not interchangeable

domsApril 13, 2009

I have 2 Craftsman 1/2HP openers, same model # 102-1499a but 4 years apart (2005 VS. 2009)

I installed new unit and programmed remotes & keypad w/o difficulty.

When I tried to link the older remotes to the new unit, and vice-versa, no luck.

1) Is there that much diff between the units?

2) Is there any way to get the remotes to work accross both Openers?

3) Will a "plug-in receiver" work?

Please help . . .

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The radio frequency has been changed in the new unit. If you bought a plug in receiver for both units with new remotes you could get it to work like you want but not using your old remotes.
