Sears Craftsman Code Resetting

alecstarOctober 5, 2007

I am trying to help a friend who has two car remotes to her garage door and one was lost/stolen. I want to reset the code (it has no mini switches) so as to make the stolen/lost remote useless. The remote has a number of 139.53779 and the opener/motor has a model number HBW0777. It was manufactured in 3/95. Can someone tell me how to reset the code? The other problem ... and I think I found the answer but want to verify that I did is... to reset the keypad outside the garage.... all I have to do is press the learning button on the back of the motor and then key in a new code within 30 seconds. Is that correct? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help....

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

The only way to change the code is to go to Sears and purchase 2 new remotes. Reprogramming the old remote puts the same code back into the opener.
