Garage Door Opener Remote will not sync

I need help with syncing a remote control to an existing garage door opener. This is the 4th to be synced and I understand that it will support 10. The model of the opener is 139.53920DM (not under warranty) but it works perfectly with the 3 other remotes. Bought remote model 30498 today and I cannot get this to sync. I have called store, another store, your technical service who want even talk to me since the unit is not under service warrant.....but remember...that works perfectly......please help....no one else seems to care


BTW, no category listed for 'Garage Door Openers.

I have a question regarding my remote for the garage door opener. The model number for the overhead is 41A3493-1.
The remote just quit working. I am wondering if somehow the internal switches go moved. What position are they supposed to be in? The overhead has no switches as others I have had in the past did.

OK...so I finally broke down and cleared all the codes from the opener and started over....the remote would not sync!. I started with the Lexus and the Ford F150 where both have the built-in HomeLink system that states, push the 'Learning' button on the unit and then push the button you wish to program 'TWICE'.......worked perfectly, so I thought, maybe this will work with the Craftsman even though the instructiosn do not say this.......Guess what, it did......so much for instructions! Problem solved!

I know that it can be very difficult to have issues with your garage door opener remote. It looks like this remote is not compatible with your opener. This is way they will not sync up together. It will only work with the 30437 and 30430 openers. You need remote 139.53572 for your opener. If you would like to order a new one, just click on this link:

. I hope this helps. If you need further assistance, please reply to this thread. Thank you for using Manage My Life.

don't think clearing and restarting is the best answer considering the Ford F150 and Lexus SUV both have the internal remote that took FOREVER to program.........those two plus the one that came with the unit work perfectly. I would rather find another solution ...plus, how do I know the link you provided posed the same question I did....I see the anwer, but it doesn't even tell me what this gentleman was asking.
