2 steps for you... first put new batteries in the remote. next trip the door mechanism by pulling on the rope. that frees the door from the chain that operates it. then close and open the door manually to prove the track is ok. then close the door and reengage the tripped mechanism. now press the button on the remote to retry. BTW... most doors will reset the catch mechanism automatically. just press the button and let her go.

If the main light flashes 10 times and the door reverses to the open position it is a door sensor problem. Make sure the lights on the sensors are both on and not flickering. Tweak them if necessary. If you cannot get both lights to come on you have bad sensors or the wiring to them.

I have a craftsman garage door opener and recently it has started to open on it's own but only opens half way and stops.This has happened a few times so I currently have it unpluged..any ideas


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

This indicates that the safety sensors are mis aligned. You can re align them by hand. There should be an led light on each sensor and each should be on, not flickering or off, no matter the color. Also check the surface they are mounted to for stability. For instance if they are mounted to the track and the track moves as the door cycles then you will have issues. This should solve your problem. Thanks BB

could be a partially broken wire in the wiring harness that runs in the door track. the wires are inside what looks like a plastic chain that allows it to move with the door and have seen them partially break not allowing power to flow the whole time

Sometimes the door opens with one push of the button


Anytime a door opens and/or closes randomly or doesn't work consistently I look for a smashed wire between the motor unit and the wall button.


If the wire is smashed the insulation becomes so thin that power will leak thru the insulation and activate the door or interfere with the remote signal.


Loosen the staples with a small screwdriver and slide the wire about ?½ inch to move any areas of thin insulation away from the staples.


The second thing would be a bad wall button or a remote with a sticking button.

Or a remote in someone's purse that gets the button pushed by other stuff in the purse.


The test is to disconnect the push button wires at the power unit. If the self operation / interference stops you have located the problem. If you reconnect the wires and disconnect the wire at the wall button this will tell you if the problem is the wire or the button is defective..
