Sears and Craftsman Garage Door Openers

The example photos below show how to connect the GarageMate receiver to your Sears and Craftsman garage door opener. For your reference we have also included links to some Sears and Craftsman user manuals.

Even if your exact model isn’t referenced on this page, GarageMate will work as a remote control for most residential Sears and Craftsman garage door openers. You simply connect the GarageMate wires in parallel to your wall switch. GarageMate will work fine even if you reverse the wires. We color code the wires simply for convention but they are electrically equivalent.

We have many customers that own a Sears-Craftsman garage door opener as the vast majority are compatible with GarageMate. There are only three newer Craftsman models that will not work and both were made after 2011: Model #54990 3/4 HP, Model #1D7675, 139.30437, and the 139.53985(DM). Other models are compatible.

Additional wiring examples

Below are some random wiring examples that maybe helpful. Note the photo show the terminals before the wires from GarageMate are connected. Those terminals are designed to hold multiple wires so please leave your existing wires in place so that your existing wall button/console will continue to work just fine. Most garage door openers have similar terminals.
