Garage Door Opener Lights

The lights come on when the door opens or closes, but not when you walk into the open garage. There is no clicking sound when you walk past the "eye" either.

Some craftman operator don't have that feature. Are both photo eye lights green? Feature not available. If the photo eyes are yellow and green feature should be avilable. The operator needs to have a three button wall station. With the light on the operator off press and hold the "light" button for about a minute until the light flashes.

When I open my garage door no lights come on. I changed out both lights with new bulbs, still no lights when I open or by manually clicking the Lights on the wall opener


Check the light sockets on either side of the garage door opener and make sure there is no corrosion on the contacts. If you see some corrosion unplug the garage door opener and scrape off the contact. Give that a try and lets see what happens.

I have a new Sears 315mhz garage door opener and the door fails to reverse when an object is placed under the door


It sounds like the force adjustment may be set too high. Check this:

The force adjustments control the pressure used to open and close the door. A new garage door opener from the factory is set to the lowest possible force adjustment. If you have a properly balanced door, the forces required to open and close the door should be minimal.


The force adjustments are usually located on the rear of the garage door opener and/or under one of the light lenses, If your opener has two lights. If you have lights on the side of your opener, the force adjustment will be located under the right light lens. The force adjustments are labeled with an arrow indicating open or close and numbered 1 to 9, with one being the lowest force and nine the highest. The force adjustments can only turn 260 degrees, or ¾ of a complete turn. Changes to the forces should be done in 10-degree increments. Please remember that too much force will interfere with the proper operation of the safety reversal system. Do not increase the force beyond the minimum required to close the door. Do not use the force adjustments to compensate for a sticking, binding, or unbalanced door.

Garage door will not open. no lights flashing on


Check to make sure that the lasers at the bottom of the door on each side are lined up. Sometimes it is easy to bump them and then they will not see each other causing the garage door to not work. Worth a try.

Garage door will open with remotes, but not with the wall switch


Sure sounds like the wall control is bad. Very common problem.

Garage Door will not open


Sounds like a loose connection inside the unit. When you move the light fixture on the motor and get it to light, the contact is reestablished, possibly being a loose wire. With the vibration from the operation of the opener, the connection will lose its contact again and the motor ceases to function. Have an electrician give it a look or disable it's power so that you can remove the cover(s) and investigate yourself.

From the manual:
Security+Light Feature: Lights will also turn on when someone walks through the open garage door. With a Premium Control Console, this feature may be turned off as follows: With the opener lights off, press and hold the light button for 10 seconds, until the light goes on and off again. To restore this feature, start with the opener lights on, then press and hold the light button for 10 seconds until the light goes off, then on again.
