This was a replacement for a 10-year old unit that had bad keys. If you don't know the stock number, selecting the proper one is confusing. Sears goes by the color of your remote buttons and the color and shape of the Smart Button on the powerhead. Don't believe it. The package of this keyless entry unit says it works with systems that have blue keys on the remotes and an orange square Smart Button. However, my system has gray remote keys and a red square Smart Button. Fortunately, I saved the manual that came with the old one and just matched up the stock numbers. I'd recommend you do the same - ignore the colors and shapes of the buttons and just go by the stock numbers.
bought a 53930 garage opener and wanted to add keyless. went to sears and they said i needed a 53684 keyless. this did not work so i took it back and nobody could tell me which unit it took. the colors of the buttons on the remotes mattered and then the color of the button on the back of the opener then mattered. they need to make it easier to figure out which ones will work on each opener. does not seem that dificult to get that done but it sure is. almost every keyless in the store was already opened so i don't think i'm the only one having this problem.
I started with confirming the correct pad for my opener which is about 10 years old. Lucky to have the premium control console for the opener so enabling the keypad went exactly as the surprisingly clear instructions said. All other remotes still worked. Mounting was simple.
Here's a $ heads up...I ordered from sears.com with free delivery to the store (easy pickup) and saved about $13 over buying from PartsDirect.
<p>My keypad wasn't working on my Craftsman garage door opener purchased in 1998. I stopped in a Sears to see if they had one and let the salesperons pick it out even though I recognized it the moment I saw it. The other 2 in stock had rounder covers. My buttons are blue and I do have a orange button on the back of my machine. I presesed the learn button on the back of my machine before I pulled my car in and typed in the old code on the new keyapd and it was working. The salesperson told me how to do this and it was in the instructions too. I was able to remove the old one and install the new one with the 2 provided screws in the dark in zero degree weather. I depend on that keypad to get in the house if I should ever accidenly lock myself out and I am so happy I don't have to buy a new garage door opener! I don't go to Sears often because I'm not a big mall shopper but I was very happy with my shopping experience.</p>
<p>I purchased my keyless entry pad a couple of months ago because my brother recommended it. When I purchased it I thought it would maybe be just another thing that I would not get any use for. It has been the best thing I could have purchased. I was outside my house thinking I had left my door unlocked and guess what I had locked it by mistake. Without my keyless entry pad I would have had to call a locksmith to get into my home. This has been the best $39 I have ever spent, now I have the peace of mind knowing that I will not lock myself out again. I would recommend investing in one and knowing you have a way to gain entry into your home. Thank you Sears for making such good quality merchandise.</p>
