Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+
Lightening strike at our house shorted a Sears#139.53640SRT. The lights work from the remotes and the wall switch but the door won't open or close. the green LED on the PC board blinks 5 times and then remains off for 5 seconds before blinking again. This is a code for troubleshooting. What is it telling me? Lee

first off, hitting extra button on remote would not do anything. Is door up or down/ where is trolley that attaches to chain, by door or motor. Is is jamned against a bolt. Try a paper clip and jump from white to read terminal. Does it work. Does light bulb blink 10 times. I ignore the diagnostic lights and go by symptons. Give more info.

this probably means you have a bad photo eye if you happen to have to doors side by side may be picking up on other sides photo eye just switch sides from left to right, however if the lights are coming on but does not mean that photo eye is not bad it has a small circuit board inside of it...

There isn't a reset code. It sounds like you may be having a door sensor problem. Is the small light on each sensor lit and not blinking ever so slightly? Does your door start down and then reverse to the open position? Is the door stuck in the open position? Check to make sure the trolley isn't jammed against the bolt just in front of the motor unit. If it is then remove the bolt and run the door until closes. Then adjust the up limit on the side of the motor unit. Turn it in the opposite direction of the arrow printed on the cover about 3 turns. Be sure to then replace the bolt.

My garage door opener will start to close then stop and go back to the open position. If I put pressure on the door as it is closing sometimes it will close all the way and sometimes it will return to the open position. Can you help me. Thanks firstname.lastname@example.org
