Craftsman Garage Door Opener

I just purchased two Craftsman garage door openers. I have them installed and they open and close properly. The lights come on and go off like they are supposed to. My problem is, the automatic light feature is not working properly. If I put the switch to the on position, the light comes onl and will not go off. This happens to both openers. I have the 3/4 HP model 139.53990D unit. What am I doing wrong?

From the manual:
Security+Light Feature: Lights will also turn on when someone walks through the open garage door. With a Premium Control Console, this feature may be turned off as follows: With the opener lights off, press and hold the light button for 10 seconds, until the light goes on and off again. To restore this feature, start with the opener lights on, then press and hold the light button for 10 seconds until the light goes off, then on again.

What does the purple button light flashing on 1/2 horsepower craftsman garage door opener


I think the adjustment mode is on.

For example, that's from Craftsman manual:

""
Setting the Force
The force setting button is located on the left panel of the motor unit. The force setting measures the amount of force required to open and close the door.
1. Locate the purple button on the left panel of the motor unit (Figure 1).
2. Push the purple button twice to enter the opener into Force Adjustment Mode (Figure 2). The LED (Indicator Light) will flash quickly.
3. Push the remote control or control console (Figure 3). The door will travel to the DOWN (close) position.

""

Actually, you should just read carefully your garage door opener unit's manual.

I have a Craftsman Model # 139.53664SRT that has worked great until recently. When I try to close the garage door by keypad or with remote, it will not allow me to do so unless I turn the light out once...


The first thing I would do is remove the light bulb from the socket and try the opener. I have a feeling the bulb itself is bad or there is some arcing in the socket. Try unplugging the opener and prying out on the center connector of the socket.

When garage door is opening the safety sensors activate and starts closesing the garage door. They should activate when I close the garage door.How can I correct this action?


How do you know it is the sensors? Has this opener ever worked properly? Do the main lights flash 10 times when the door reverses? If the opener worked before have you had it apart or done some work to it?

I have a craftsman garage door opener (1/2 hp) won't close proper


Check your door sensors. They have probably been bumped. Tweak them until they are pointed at one another and the small light on each one is lit and not blinking.
