replacement garage door openers. Anyone identify this?

So we are buying a house, and we found out they don't have remotes for their garage doors. Nor is there an outside control. So we are hoping to get remotes for it and a panel to open from the outside ASAP, so we can have the parts as soon as we move in. However, I only have this one photo to go by (opener is pretty old, but it still works)

Not sure if replacement remotes that work would be available? or should I just get a new opener? Is there a certain type I can get that could just swap out the unit and use the existing track to install it easier and quicker?

thanks for any suggestions!

You can check out the company's website here: https://www.liftmaster.com/For-Homes/Ga ... or-Openers where you can find a local dealer.

BTW: Always make sure you change the garage door codes whenever you move. We left all the remotes when we sold our last home, but I had forgotten that I activated the built in garage door opener in my car. We moved 3 years ago and was recently driving by the house and I decided to push the garage door opener in the car. You guessed it - the garage door opened. The garage door codes were never changed. Considering that you can now open your garage door with your cell phone, not re-programming everything is just plain stupid.

LiftMaster is made by Chamberlain. I have a Craftsman opener (also made by Chamberlain) and when I was looking for a remote the way to tell if they were compatible was by the color of the programming(learn) button on the motor, so you would actually need a picture of the side or rear panel on the motor (or at least know the button color, its usually near the hanging wire antenna on the motor).

By Googleing Lift-Master security plus it looks like your model has an orange button and orange buttons use the 390 mhz frequency. That remote you linked is 300/310/315/372/390 MHz compatible, so it should work.

Ok. Thanks. Being its from costco I might get that and just return it if it's not compatible on move in day. But that's very helpful. Thanks.

Good point. I wouldn't have thought to de-program the old remotes. The original house owners probably have them.

yeah, it is a good idea to erase the old codes, which I have never done myself after purchasing my house. The old owners gave us 2 remotes... hopefully that is all they had. At least they moved not too far away and I know where (I've brought them some mail that I got for them) and we are on excellent terms.

But to remove all the old codes its usually as simple as holding the learn button on the motor for between 5 to 10 seconds.

if remotes + outdoor keypad cost is around $100
might as well buy a new door opener that comes with complete set

belt drive, nice and quiet

^This. If the opener is really as old as the OP says it may be time to replace it. Advantage is you'll get a new opener plus all the accessories.
