Craftsman GDO 1/2 HP - Remotes not working after storm

After a lightening storm, my GDO would not open. I'm assuming the lightening did something??? The GDO light worked so I know it was getting power, but neither the remotes nor the button on the console would open the door. I flipped the fuse and got the console to work but still can't get the remotes to work. I have gone through the steps to reset by pushing the SRT/learn button and then attempted to reset the remotes. I pushed and held the remote button then pressed the SRT button and released. The lights flashed as I was told they would but the remotes still will not open the door. The console lock indicator flashes when I try to use the remote. But I do see the light next to the learn button flash when I push the remote as if it's getting signal but the door won't open. What else could be wrong? I really think I'm reseting them correctly.

After a lightening storm the light on my Craftsman garage door opener work. I changed the bulb but that's not the problem Thinking it may be the fuse, but where is it?


I'm guessing that some of the electronics got fried by a voltage surge.
If you can find your model number you can probably get a replacement board at sears parts direct,

1/2 HP Craftsman Garage Door Opener works but lights don't


I think you are saying that normal incandescent bulbs do not work. If that is correct you should unplug the unit and using a small screwdriver reach into the socket and pull out slightly on the center contact.

Craftsman GDO - Remotes not working


I think this is an easier way to program. Press and hold the button on the remote and then press and immediately release the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit. Do this for each remote you have.

Only 1 remote will work at a time


One of your remotes has reverted to an earlier technology and they will no longer work with each other. You need to purchase a new remote making sure you get the same model number. Then you will find you can program 2 that will work with each other and 1 that will not. Remove the battery from the bad remote and toss it so that it doesn't cause problems down the road.

My garage door opener stoped working after a storm.


TRY TO REPROGRAM THE REMOTES TO THE OPENER - THESE UNITS CAN LOSE THE MEMORY DURING STORMS.

I WOULD SUGGEST ADDING A SURGE PROTECTOR AT THE PLUG IN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR UNIT IN THE FUTURE.
