    The video shows pushing and releasing the srt on the back of opener then pushing and releasing the remote button. BUT the written instructions differ by pushing and holding the remote then pushing and holding the srt . I’ve tried both and neither work. It worked fine two days ago. I even have an integrated remote to my vehicle that has stopped working as well. New batteries in craftsman remote. I have done a reset of the srt. The wall buttons work and is not on lock. What now? To get the remotes working again?
    Where will any response be? As I don’t see any other responses here?

    Can I program my old Craftsman opener to our new Jeep Cherokee without a portable hand held opener? We’ve never used a remote opener, our old car’s button worked just fine with the opener so we never had a need for a hand held remote.


    IS THE LEARN button same to the SRT button?

    1. I wonder that too as it is very confusing to call the same button by two names but it appears it might be.

    My Sears 1/2 horsepower garage door opener was made in 1996. It has a red learn button but no SRT button. The button on my non-functioning Sears remote is blue. I bought a 893Max Liftmaster remote. Did I buy the wrong remote?

    How do you un-program one of these? I have a neighbor whose remote opens my garage. Have to unplug garage openers to keep them from opening randomly… :/

    1. Ronald Oliver says:

      Press the learn button until the light flashes. That should indicate that the opener has cleared its memory.

    I have a Craftsman with no SRT or Learn button. 1 of 3 of the remotes no longer works although when you push the button, the green light comes on. How do I reprogram that one?

    How do I program for a Craftsman 76LE? It has no Learn button or SRT.

  14. I have the exact garage door opener as the one in the article. The make and model numbers are faded. Do you have that info handy? I’m having issues with it opening and closing. I can use the remote to open it when I’m trying to leave but it will not close via the remote when I back out. I can even stand directly under the opener and it will still not close. Another issue I’m having is with the key pad. The battery is dead and when I removed the battery a part of the battery decided to stay behind and now the black wire is no longer connected. So I need the info to replace the keypad, and try to troubleshoot the other issues. Thank you.

    I have the problem the same as many, and there is no response to any of them . My opener works with wall switch, but not with remote. Will not program. I just changed the circuit board and my problem has not changed

      Look for a ‘lock’ button on your wall controls, it stops the remote from working if you want to go out of town or something.
