Sears Garage Opener 139.53716

lukshenSeptember 4, 2007

I am trying to replace my Sears Model #139.53716 button that is attached to the keypad outside the garage. When I removed the old button I marked the wires, at least I thought I did. Now I cannot connect the wires, no matter how I change them! Please help! There are 4 wires and 3 screws to attatch to. The door works with the car remotes and the other button.

I'm not quite following your problem. Is the button part of the keypad or something someone has added next to it? Are you replacing it because it quit working?

I looked up your model number on the Sears web site and find this came with 2 strand bell wire rather than 3 strand. Do the wires go from the keypad to the switch? Have you replaced the 9 volt battery? You say you are trying to replace it. Have you purchased a new one? Sorry for all the questions but this is an old unit and I am trying my best to bring back some foggy memories.

Don, thanks for the responses, sorry its taken so long to get back to you. The 2 wires, split into 4 go from the garage door motor to a door opener button outside the door to the house and to the part I am trying to replace (yes I bought a new one),the button before you go out of the garage. There are additional plug in wires that go to the outside keypad, they are not the problem.Yes I have replaced the 9 volt.This is an old unit, I am thinking of replacing the entire garage door system. I can't attach the 4 wires to the 3 screws on the back of the new part!
