Garage Door won't open.

I have a Craftsman modle 139.53637SRT garage door opener. My remote will open and close the door if I am within 8 feet. Beyond that it does not work. I have followed the steps for re-programming, I have unpluged the unit, and I have changed out the battery. I would like to know if you have any suggestions on fixing it?

Your only shot is to make sure the receiver antenna ( the one on the opener itself ) is connected properly, clean, and not shorted to anything metal. While you're up there clean off any wasp nests and other dirt and crud which may have accumulated on the receiver or terminals. Hopefully you have a second transmitter which is also range-limited, 'cause if you have one "good" transmitter then your receiver is not the problem. If there's just one bad transmitter, go buy a replacement.

My Liftmaster garage door won't open or close. I hit the button and it make a sound and clicks but won't close


Remove the cover and check the drive gear. It is a white nylon gear just in front of the motor. It will be obvious if it is bad. Tell me - if it won't open how do you know it won't close?

I have a 1/2 hp Sears Craftsman Garage Door opener about 18 months old when operating the remote within 5 feet or less of the opener the opener works properly. Upon exiting the Garage about 10-12 feet away...


The difficulty is determining if your remote or the receiver is bad. If you have another remote that works as it should then it is the remote. If you just have the one remote there is no way to tell which is bad.

My Craftsman remote won't close my garage door


If the remote opens and closes while inside the garage but not outside , there are a few things it could be. Assuming it was working fine before..
1. weak battery in remote.
2. remote itself could be bad. (unless you have more than 1 remote acting the same)
3. Logic board in opener is going bad causing limited range.Is the wire that hangs down from the opener straightened out? That is your remote antenna.Some people have coiled or even cut it off..reducing range.
4. Less likely but this can happen- interference from another electronic device, wireless routers, cell phone, new appliances etc.. can reduce remote range. Any new electronics recently purchased?

Only opens when remotes are close


The problem is in the receiver on the logic board. You will have to replace the logic board. You can get a replacement part at searspartsdirect.com. Thanks BB

Lack of range on Garage door remote


There is a short wire hanging down from the back of the opening motor -- pull this down as far as you can and bend it so it is pointing toward the garage door. This wire acts like an antenae.
