I need to buy a new remote but I am not totally sure what to buy. Someone tell me to buy by the color of the LED light on the motor unit. Mine is a green light. Is that all I need?

My unit model is 139.53628SR4, 1/2HP manufactured in 2/94. The remote that is broken model 139.53779

Please help.

Sears has a couple new remotes where you can't go wrong. They will work with any Craftsman opener built since 1993.

Model 30498 or 30499.

The number you want to use at the retail store is 00930498000 or 00930499000.

FYI that LED has been green since I can remember.
