Thank you for the reply;
The remote I bought to replace the "original" is the only replacement available from Sears. I even checked with Sears Parts Direct, that's it. On the back of the package it states
"Look on the back of the power head mounted on your garage ceiling, if it has a GREEN, ORANGE, RED, YELLOW or PURPLE square 'smart button' this remote will be compatible with it."
Mine is ORANGE. So it should be compatible.
I went to Parts Direct and could not find 53753 either a model or a part number.
As I stated before;
My Home Link in my car works fine.
My mounted wireless remote outside the garage works fine.
My wired remote in the garage works fine.
one thing I may have forgotten to add is that my daughters visor mounted wireless remote works fine. The only one that quit working is my wifes visor mounted remote (the older one I replaced with the 9-30498).
I have removed the battery from the older (possibly defective) one to preclude any interference and tried to program the replacement remote (9-30498) still nothing. I have hesitated resetting the unit as I wonder if the remotes that operate will stop working and I won't be able to reprogram them.
If you believe I should reset it I will give it a try.
right now I'm starting to think it may be a problem with the main board. If that's the case I will probably get a new unit.
Thank you for your suggestions, I hope the additional information is helpful is getting to a solution and I look forward to any further advice you may have.
