Sounds like a broken or disconnect wire. At least start their. Unplug operator. Take the cover/shroud off, using a bright flash light check all the wires for breaks or disconnects. Repair or reconnect. Also check the bulb screw housing are connect on the back side.

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,

My craftsman door opener light doesn't work I replaced the light bulb and still doesn't work tried pulling out the centre socket contact to no avail.


You have done all you can do if you are using a standard bulb. The light is controlled by a small relay on the logic board and that is probably bad.

1/2hp Craftsman Garage door opener light bulb


If you are getting a click the relay on the board sounds like it is working. Sometimes the contacts in the light socket gets burn spots on them. Try unplugging the unit, unscrewing the bulb and with a small scrapping tool (small flat screwdriver) scrap the bottom contact and the contact on the threads. Bend the contact on the threads a little too make better contact with the bulb. Screw the bulb the bulb in completely. If this does not solve your problem the only the left to do is to replace the logic board.

Garage door opener light bulbs burning out


You can replace the socket itself. Unless there is extreme vibration this will be your best bet. If there is vibration then use some rubber washers to lessen this. You can get replacement parts at chamberlain.com. Thanks BB
