It wasn't properly programmed. The seller SHOULD have provided you
with the manual with progctions. Some have an "abreviated" closing
mode where you only need to touch one or 2 buttons to close. I believe
it was a feature on a very few keypads. Your dealer/installer SHOULD
have explained it to you.
He was a total idiot and ass. I had just gotten out of the hospital and was
very ill and weak. I couldn't stay out there and watch him. He just kept
leaving again and again and didn't put things right. I spent hours and
hours all through the day and night trying to get the company to answer the
phone. I didn't even think to ask for the manuals but from what I read
online, this unit is a bitch to reprogram.
But... None of this would explain why when I put in the 2 digits, it would
start to close and then reopen. At any rate, this guy didn't know what he
was doing at all.
If there are any more problems, I will not call this place again. I will
call my bro's neighbor. Yes, I'll have to pay. But I don't care.

Lots of older "garages" are too small for a car, but the garage door
makes it easy to get the bikes, snowblower, lawnmower, and garbage
cans in and out. As for the daughter -- mabee she can't be trusted not
to lose the key????
I don't really want her climbing ladders. She had a stress fracture in her
back and then some problems following that. Husband and I are both disabled
but in different ways. Neither of us should climb a ladder but... In
looking it up online, the reprogramming is done totally at the Clicker
itself and not the garage door opener. But the three reviewers said it was
a PITA to try to reprogram so I don't want to try.
No he did not. You don't know the installer. He wouldn't even answer his
phone after they told him to come out here. I suspect it is because he did
not like me. And he knows that I did not like him. Especially after he
tried to scam me out of some money that my husband had already paid him.
And because they had to keep sending him back again and again to put the job
right. It still isn't right but it was as good as I was going to get.
I wish you'd go away. I did ask about specific things and so far nobody I
have asked has had an answer. I suppose I could try calling support again
but when I had to do that for the clips I spent several hours on the phone
being bounced from wrong department to wrong department.
Julie, the only reason you got bounced around from department to
department was sheer vindictiveness. There are folks at Chamberlain who
have it in for their co-workers. What better way to ruin their day than
to foist a drama queen like on them?
There is nothing to catch on to. Everything I have said is the truth but
nothing about this makes any sense to me. My friends were freaking out
about it and telling me to change the passcode. Yeah, the tech. knows it
but I can't figure out how to do it and I'm pretty sure nobody else could
figure it out given the confusing online instructions. So... I'd still
have to call another tech. to change it. Plus, we are not wealthy and we
have nothing really of value in here.

Can you find the model number by matching your opener, including its
accessories (keypad, remotes, wall console), to a picture at
HomeDepot.com, Sears.com, or Amazon.com?
You can get instructions from Chamberlain's website, but I think
that requires specifying the model number. However Sears.com
sells both Chamberlain and Sears Craftsman brand openers (made
by Chamberlain) and has user manuals available on each model's
You can change the PIN of the keypad unit without pressing the
purple button on the overhead unit if you can get the current
PIN to work: Enter the current PIN, then press and hold # until
the overhead unit blinks or clicks. Then enter the new PIN and
hit ENTER. With my Chamberlain, you don't normally press #
after entering the PIN, and the PIN can be only 4 digits, not 5 or
With some models you can also program the other remotes without
pressing the purple button on the overhead unit, provided the
wall console has more than one button. Some require pressing
and holding the LIGHT button and then then the open/close button,
while other consoles have a LEARN button, possibly hidden behind
a swing-up lid:
However the following model does not allow configuring the remotes
through the wall console because it has only one button:
It may be possible that installing a multi-button wall console
will allow programming the remotes through it, but I wouldn't
be surprised if the overhead unit isn't designed for that.
If you phone Chamberlain, beware that they have 3 levels of
employees: installers, technicians, and senior technicians,
and you probably want to speak with one of the last two.
I have been begging the folks over in a food group to just ignore this one.
I personally think she is made up, as her stories never make sense, her
threads lack consistency, and her posts seem designed to stir things up to
