Craftsman/Genie garage door remote compatible?

mhoner96March 13, 2010

Hello, I moved into a new home and the previous owner has a sears craftsman garage door motor (139.53640SRT) but left me with a Genie garage door remote (GT90-1). Is there any way that the Genie garage door opener is compatible with the Sears Craftman? Thanks, Mike

Normally the answer is no they are not compatible but there is a possibility. All manufacturers make a universal transmitter and receiver that will work with any opener. You may have one of these. If you have 2 wires coming from each of the terminals 1 and 2 on the rear of the motor unit or if there are 4 wires attached to the wall control. If so, follow these wires and they will lead you to the receiver.
