I have a Craftman Garage Door Opener Mod#139.53650SRT. It closes completely then goes back up. I replaced the sensors @ the sides of the door to no avail. I have tried to adjust the up and down on the side...


I agree with the closing resistance may be set incorrectly, all openers have a safety feature that senses if something is keeping the door from closing, this is back force, you set the sensitivity at the back of the opener motor control, it is a little dial, reduce the setting just enough to stop the door from kicking back open when it closes, I had this very same problem with my craftsman and this adjustment fixed it.

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 Chamberlain Liftmaster Professional 1/3 hp garage door opener. I'm unable to find the model number, but it was made in April 2004 and has an orange learn button. It has been working fine since...


Do you mean the numeric keypad is no longer controlling the garage door? If so, have you changed the battery for the keypad? Frequently, if the battery is low, the keypad will stop working when the door is closed but works to close an open door. On most Chamberlain garage door openers, this is a 9V battery. You may need a small Philips screw driver to open the battery compartment at the bottom of the keypad.

After changing the battery, try the learn code procedure again. I've found it easiest to have two people involved when programming the keypad to the garage door opener. One handles the Learn button and the other types in the desired code.

I hope this helps.

You may just have a weak battery in the keypad or the keypad is going bad and losing range. This is an indication of a weak signal.

Remote Control closes garage door but does not open


It sounds like a case of your keypad losing signal strength enough that it cannot transmit through the closed door. If a new battery doesn't do the job a new keypad will.

I have a jackshaft garage opener, and the open/ close button on the wall do not work. I can manually press the relays to open and close the door. I want it to work right.


Try removing the wall button and the two wires on the rear. Touch them together quickly and see if the opener works. If it does you have a bad wall control. If not you have either bad wiring or a bad logic board.
