i have a garage door Key pad that does not work in the winter. Can I get one that will work in MN and work with my current opener?

by Manage My Life Last activity date:

Model #139.53684 or 139.18795 The key pad works in the summer, I have tried replacing the battery that does not work. The only thing that works is to bring it in the house and let it warm up. Alot of good that does in MN. I would like to replace it with one that is compatible with our current garage door opener. This is a craftsman opener.

Thank you for your question.

I can relate to the cold weather effect on the electronic controls. I know that when it gets super cold -0's electronic components start having problems.

To bad you can't plug it in like the car.

I would suggest replacing the control with a newer design Clicker model that may work better and will not be as affected by the cold winter weather.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

53684 is a keypad and 18795 doesn't come up on the Sears parts website. If you take the model number off your opener you will be able to find the compatible keypad at

I can't imagine the inconvenience of a garage door opener not functioning in Minnesota. I did some research at and found an expert answer that may help. has Sears associates that can also assist if you end up needing to order a part. I have attached both links below. I hope you find the information provided useful until your expert can respond.
