Garage Door Keypad Opener

Posted by scutana (My Page) on

I own a craftsman 1/2 hp opener. I had a keypad on the outside of the garage door and it stopped working. I thought that it was the battery so installed a new one, but still no luck. I went to Sears and purchased a new keypad, and had the same problem again. The garage door opener will not even accept a code to use, but the garage door opener on the wall inside of the garage works just fine. I have tried different codes but with no success. I also bought a new visor opener and that will not work either. Does anyone know what could be wrong in this situation? Thanks for your help

The keypad and your visor opener are both radios that send a signal to the receiver to open the door. The wall button doesn't. It is like a doorbell switch - wired directly. I would say your receiver has quit working. It is part of the logic board.

RE: Garage Door Keypad Opener

my problem is the same but different :)
my keypad works -- so receiver is accepting signal- i can unprogram it and reprogram it
but i cannot program the clickers - have bought new batteries and a new clicker but it will not accept them - it doesnt make sense that keypad works, the hard wired door switch works as well

swahili make sure the lock function isn't on. This is a function that can be toggled off and on by the wall control. If the light in the wall control is blinking, press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds.

THANKS Don i dont beleive i have that (vacation) function on wall unit there is just the 1 button that i push to open or close the door and the light is solid green
its just not making sense that the keypad can be reprogramed but not the clicker

RE: Garage Door Keypad Opener

could i buy another keypad the same model and use it ie: would they both work with the same #'s programed ?

does anyone know
