Garage Door Opener

Posted by kbr81911 (My Page) on

I recently moved and have a garage with a garage door opener that the remote has been lost. It is a Craftsman 139.53415SR. I want to buy a new remote, but for the life of me, I can not find any dip switches in the unit itself so that I can program both when (or if) I get a new remote. This opener was manufactured in 1991 and still works and I hate to have to purchase a new one. I have found remotes but I want to make sure I can reprogram the unit before I make any purchases. Thanks to anyone who can help!

RE: Garage Door Opener

Your opener does not have dip switches. The remote you need is number 53778 and is available from Sears for $39.00. To program the opener once you get the remote you need to locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and hold the button on the remote while you press and release the smart/learn button. This should do the trick for you.
