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

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.

Have your neighbor bring over his remote and open or close your door with it. Then hold the smart/learn button in for 6 seconds on your opener. Then see if he can open your door. He shouldn't be able to because that procedure erases the memory in your opener. No remotes should work. You need to get that remote #53778 back and program it and then see if your neighbor can open your door. If he can open your door at any point after you have held that button in for 6 seconds you need to get a new door opener.

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.

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
