I have a sears craftsman garage door opener with a keypad entry remote. This has been working good and now has quit. I replaced the battery and now the door just jerks back and forth and quits. The doors works fine with wired wall remote and the cars remotes. I had 2 other of the keypad remotes and have tried them and they do the same. Does anyone know what is going on? Again works great with everything except the keypad entry

Are these wireless keypads and are they Sears? Are they protected from dripping water? This is a very unusual problem and then multiply that by 3 units all acting the same. I would check the keypad for a sticking key.

RE: Sears Garage door opener keypad remote problem

Neither of my remotes work, nor my keypad. All worked fine until yesterday, then all three quit working. Keypad lights do not lite up whe touched...Craftsan 139.53976SRT. Replaced all batteries. All three are wireless, of cours. Only switch that works to open the garage door is the hard wired button on the garage wall. HELP

RE: Sears Garage door opener keypad remote problem

Keypad and remote control to my GDO have been operating fine.
Then today when I tried to close my GDO with my remote it would not work. I tried the one in my wife's car and it would not close the door either. So, I got out and attempted to use the remote pad and it would not operate. Both were purchased about a year and half ago and installed at the same time. What could the problem be that would stop them from opening my GDO?
