Sears Craftsman - unable to pair with MyQ

  • Updated 3 years ago
I just purchased the Chamberlain MyQ and had no problems pairing it with a LiftMaster opener.

However, I've also tried to pair it with a Search Craftsman opener with no luck.  It is a 2003 model that I've paired with several transmitters in the past with no issue, but try as I might it won't connect to the MyQ device.

Wondering if anyone else has encountered this and if so how you may have resolved it?

Attached is picture of the placard on the back of the Craftsman unit.

Thanks in advance.

LDP - The only way to make that Craftsman opener MyQ compatible would be to add the MyQ Garage. This is a wireless version of the Internet Gateway that connects to your wireless network and is installed in the garage. Here is additional information, http://www.chamberlain.com/smartphone-control-products/myq-garage/model-myq-g0201

Dawn,

Thank you for your your reply.  That is actually the device I purchased and installed - the MyQ Garage.  No problems pairing with my Liftmaster but it will not connect to the Craftsman for the other door.

I just want to verify, did you purchase a second door sensor for the Craftsman opener?

Yes.  The issue is that the Chamberlain hub won't pair to the Craftsman opener.

What color is the button on your Craftsman opener?    How many remotes do you already have programmed into the opener?
