Garage will open from remote in car, but wont close?

This just started a couple of weeks ago, and it is true with both my wife's car and mine. The garage will open fine when I hit my in car remote, but the garage will not close with the remote.
We have to get out of the car and manually push the button in the garage.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in Advance

Lift master formula I will not close, only goes half way down, but fully opens. Worked fine until my wife closed the door on the car, after that it would fully close


I had this problem as well with the door opening just fine but was not closing when using the remotes or when breifly pressing the wall mounted control. The door would close only when using the wired wall mount control. I have experienced this problem with other garage door openers I've had in my previous homes and it was always caused by sensors at the bottom of the door tracks being either misaligned or the lenses were dirty. In this case, and it was just a moment ago today, I simply cleaned the sensor lenses and then the door began to function properly. Give it a try.

I installed a Craftsman garage door a couple of weeks ago and all of a sudden it keeps opening by it's self. It is model #139.53918D what is causing this?


Make sure the door isn't closing too far. This will cause it to open. Your opener comes with a warranty. Call Sears repair.

I suggest you look for a Chamberlain dealer in the yellow pages and explain what you have. You are looking for a 'universal receiver' that will work with what you have.

Craftsman Garage Opener intermittently not closing


A couple things to check and do. If the main light flashes 10 times when the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure they are pointed at one another and that the small light on each one is lit and not flickering. Tweak them a bit if necessary.

If the main light isn't flashing it may just be a simple adjustment. Locate the 'down force' adjustment on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Increase this about 1/4 turn and try.

For the light you should unplug the unit and then using a small screwdriver pull out on the center contact in the light socket.

Wireless keypad closes door but won't open door. Just started this about a week ago. I replaced battery, still no luck. Car remotes work fine.


You keypad has lost signal strength. It has enough to work when the door is open but not enough to penetrate the door. A replacement is needed.

Car starts without using remote starter button


Some how your system got programmed to start at a certain time, mine did the same thing. Press star and lock at the same time on the two way remote. It wont work with the smaller one way remote that came with the system. That cleared mine up the very first time.

You have a problem with the safety eyes. Make sure a light is on on both eyes. If not, realign until both lights come on.
