Do you have the sensors at the bottom of the door? if so they might be out of alignment. all you have to do line them up by getting the green light solid. let me know if this helps you.

Sears garage door opener 1/2 hp about 6 years old. Will not respond to remotes to open and close. Light flashes on opener when remote is pressed but no door action.


Door sensors are not working. Check if lights are on both sides.
Might be misaligned or one is bad.
Door will close if you hold in the garge close button until it's all the way down.
And it will open on it's own.
You can get these off ebay.

Garage Master 1/3 HP 1997 Door Working, not responding to Remote


I have the exact same situation, except my model (139.53607) is older than yours and does not even have an LED. Remotes only works after after shop light goes off (5 minutes or so), but wall button works fine. Did call Sears Service and the tech told me the logic board is probably shot. Don't want to waste money on service call so I'll probably have to buy a completely new unit in the Spring and go through the winter without the use of a remote.

Garage door went on "vacation"


Try to remove the power cord. Be careful if you have to climb a ladder! Reinsert.
Here are instructions for vacation mode:
If you have a three buttom wall panel, one of the small buttons should be the lock button, push this button and hold it for a couple of seconds until the LED on the wall panel stops blinking.

Good Luck!
