sounds like the safety door sensors are at fault,also did you reprogram the remotes by pressing the smart button on the logic board,when the safety sensors are bad the door will reverse to open can pully the rip cord to manualy close the door untill you solve the problem.

SOURCE: Chamberlain Liftmaster Pro. Garage door Problems closing

The sensor eye - or more likely, the other end, the sensor light - probably got knocked out of alignment. The eye should have an LED on it - possibly one that glows green when it's ready to close or red when it's obstructed or out of alignment. Try adjusting the light until the LED on the receiver glows green.

Try searching around here to find similar or hopefully exact opener. Stanley no longer is in the garage door business, and the company that bought them out went bankrupt.
Good Luck

My stanley mod6500 1/2 hp lightmaker sometimes opens and when open to set distanve it kicks out to "reset mode" ( have to switch manually from operate to vacation then back to operate ) to reset and then...

You could have a problem with the door which is causing the opener to kick into a safety mode. Release the door from the opener, run it by hand several times. If you feel it bind, figure out where it's binding and resolve that issue. Then reset your opener again and it should be fixed. If it is not binding, then most likely you have a board problem and will either need to replace the board or replace the opener. Stanley's are known for these type of board issues. I would stick to a liftmaster if you replace it.

You have shorted out your logic board. This could of been prevented with a surge protector 900 joules or higher. Whether you repair or replace get one. Stanley went out of business but you may still be able to find replacement parts online. Thanks BB

Sharp Insight Pro microwave drawer KB6024MS not working

The drawer often stops working when it is abruptly stopped while opening and forced closed or vice-versa. To fix, simply do the following:
1) Push the draw all the way closed
2) Push the "Setup" button repeatedly until the "Open/Close ...?" appears.
3) Hold the Start Button until the time reappears in the display.
4) Repeat steps 2 & 3 three more times
5) Unplug the Microwave for 30 minutes.
The drawer is now reset. The drawer will now open electronically (automatically) either by pushing the open button on the panel or by pulling the drawer handle slightly.

1997 BMW Convertible driver/passenger windows won't go down

I had a similar problem with a '95 Olds. Turned out that the wires between the door frame and the driver's side door had broken from the constant flexing of the door opening and closing.

Stanley has been out of the garage door opener business for over 15 years. I reccommend replacing these openers when they start acting up because it is so difficult to get any parts. There is a reason that they went out of business.
