Hello members i have a sears craftsman GDO model # 139.53644srt tht is quite old but seemed to work fine. was just a little loud. my neighbor gave me a chamberlain liftmaster GDO model #1346 which had more HP.

The Craftsman model is 390mhz and the Liftmaster is 315mhz. They are not compatible. The wall control works because it is hardwired and does not use the receiver.

To program your remotes: Press and hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Do not hold it in.

Lubricating all the hinges on your door and the bearings of the rollers will help. There is also a vibration isolation kit available which will help with the noise. It is part number 41A3263 and you should be able to get this at any door opener service company. You can install it yourself.

Gdo Problems

Thanx don 1 i did try those procedures but got no response from GDO could it be logic board. also loudness is coming from the motor itself. so can i quite it down by lubricating motor gears inside of GDO. Thanx again don 1 i see tht u answer alot of these same ??? over n over we all appreciate ur input and knowledge on these matters oh n most improtantly ur Patience...thanx again sincerly efamily.....

Lubricating the gears may help but it is normally the door itself and vibrations that cause all the noise. Try running the opener without the door attached to see how noisy it is. The logic board could be the cause of your problem but it is expensive.
