How can I change my garage door opener code? No enter key.

There is literally nothing in my garage door opener manual about setting/changing my keypad code (it acknowledges that the keypad exists, but there's nothing on how to actually use it), and Sears's customer service is useless. I spent 35 minutes talking to 5 different people who all told me that they could do nothing but schedule a technician to come out to look at "the problem". There is no problem, of course, I just want to know how to USE the thing, but I was told that there was no one I could call that knew anything about any of their products. Anyway, I have a Sears/Craftstman grage door opener, model number 139.53638SRT 1/2HP. The keypad only has buttons 0-9 (no enter button), and the opener itself has two dials and a single green button. I've tried a number of things that I thought might work, but alas, they did not. Can anyone help me out?

Good morning... I can fully understand your concern regarding this issue. I'm surprised that the manual had little to nothing to say about reprogramming the wall keypad code. I did locate a link that will discuss your situation in greater detail. Though this link discusses a different model number, the mechanics are likely going to be very similar. Keep in mind that an expert will be responding within the next two business days if not sooner and will likely offer you more information and instruction. I hope this link will help guide you and enable you to successfully program your garage door opener and have a nice day.

Is this a hard wired keypad? If so: To program the keypad, first unplug the garage door opener from the electrical outlet. Next, remove the nameplate from the console that the keypad plugs into and locate the program/operate switch. Flip the switch to program. Next, enter your desired four-digit PIN number into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed.

10 keys 0-9 or 12 keys 0-9 and a * and a # key? If you have 12 keys You may want to review the instructions for a TYPE 4 opener @ http://www.liftmaster.com/CatalogResourcesV3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/114A3495.pdf

Thank you for your question.  Older garage door openers do present some challenges.  Your keypad would use dip switches and the link provided by anonymous is the correct information.  I was not able to locate the manual for your model but since you do have the manual, find the correct type in the instructions to match your opener and follow the instructions to program.  When you decide it is time for a new opener with newer, easier features, you can do some comparison shopping at Sears .  Please reply if further help is needed.  Thank you for using Manage My Life.

"Is this a hard wired keypad? If so: To program the keypad, first unplug the garage door opener from the electrical outlet.

Next, enter your desired four-digit PIN number into the keypad. Slide the switch back to operate and plug the garage door opener back in. The keypad should be programmed." This was the answer. I was a little confused at first by what the "nameplate" on the "console" was. I had to remove the front panel on the big white button that the keypad plugged into (I had looked behind it, but it was the front plate that I needed to remove). Once I found that switch it was easy to do. Thanks for the help, all!

I have the same problem as hagan; when our neighbor opens his door, our door also opens, How do you change the code or signal so our two doors are not the same?
