Question about Building Materials
First, I'm not a Master Mechanic representative.
* Check your warranty. call for support.
*** Following for information only.***
* Most openers that come with a remote (some don't) will have a matching "Dip Switch" in the control unit and the remote. If yours is like the old style Craftsman then the remote is about the size of a cigarette box. It snaps open and your will see a bar with lots of little switches. This will be the same as the one in the motor drive unit in the garage.
* All you have to do is flip one or two switches and do the same with the garage motor unit.
* Double check that you flip the same for both remote and motor drive. There will be numbers to identify each switch. Compare to the remote.
**************** For new "Fob" remotes.************
* This is more difficult as these codes have to be "Programed" into both FOB and motor unit.
* Your manual (page 35) shows how to program; https://www.liftmaster.com/catalogresourcesv3/en-us/shared/files/tucmanuals/114a3064.pdf

I have a feeling your neighbor operated their door opener when you were programming your new clicker. Try erasing the memory of your opener and then program the clicker again making sure your neighbors do not operate theirs at the same time. To erase the memory hold the smart/learn button in for 10 seconds.

The most common cause of this is a bad wall control or the wiring going to it. The wall control goes bad from use and the wiring sometimes has intermittent short caused by the staples the installer used.

You say you "setup the remote and the main box but doesn't solve." I think you mean you programmed the unit but I'm not sure. Anyway try holding the smart/learn button in for 10 seconds and this will erase the memory. None of the remotes should work. Now when you are sure the neighbor will not be using their opener, program your remotes. This may be what you did but I'm not sure.

To erase the memory of the opener so that your old remote will no longer work you need to locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Press and hold this button for 6 seconds. No remotes will now work.
To program the new remote when you get it, hold the button down on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button.
Call any local door opener repair company from the yellow pages and you should be able to buy a remote from them.
