I have been replacing batteries and buying new remotes for 2 months. It was so frustrating the door would open but never close with remote. Put in 2 CFL and it works great now.
Seeing as they operate at 315 MHz maybe Alex Jones is on to something about the LED bulbs spying on us.


Yeah, the no close but open thing was what tipped me off too.

I could press the button to open the garage door from 80 yards away, but I couldn't press the button to close it from 15 feet outside my garage? It took a while to notice the difference was the light was on when trying to close it and off when opening.

I'd like to use an LED bulb in my garage door opener and the Crees are the cheapest good one, maybe I'll try to contact Cree and see if they want to work out a fix with Chamberlain somehow.

This bulb will work fine with older Craftsman Garage Opener 139.53964SRT. Have you consider swap out with another LED bulb to see if it is the same thing? It may have slightly different frequency, which may not interfere with your garage opener.

My garage door has the ability to set channels .. and it is 15 years old. Yours might too.

I put in a CFL, which also has a switching power supply in it, but it works fine. I'm sure I could find an LED to use in there, but I don't really need an LED there badly enough. I'll use the CFL until it burns out.

As to changing frequencies, no opener does that anymore. Your 15 year old one probably didn't either. You probably can just change the code sent, not the frequency it is sent on.

Either way, changing frequencies a few MHz probably wouldn't cut it. When these CFLs burn out, I'll find some LEDs that work, I have 4 other kinds of good LED bulbs in my house right now, I just can't be bothered to switch them all around.
