Garage door went on "vacation"

I can't seem to get the garage door opener to return from going on "vacation mode" after a small blink in the lights in the house? They did not give me an owners manual after installation, any suggestions? its a Sears 1/2 hp

    my garage door goes into "vacation mode" on its own. Sometimes it's while I'm at work, and come home and find I can't open the garage door, not even with the keypad. Unplugging the overhead motor seems to be the only way to reset it, which is really annoying.

Try to remove the power cord. Be careful if you have to climb a ladder! Reinsert.
Here are instructions for vacation mode:
If you have a three buttom wall panel, one of the small buttons should be the lock button, push this button and hold it for a couple of seconds until the LED on the wall panel stops blinking.

Good Luck!

Left on vacation door worked fine came home and door won't open


Did you put it in lock mode with the wall control. If the light in the wall control is blinking press and hold the lock button for 3 seconds. Make sure there is power to the opener. Check the breaker for that circuit.

Door operates ok with indide panel but not remotes


Two possibilities right off the bat. One is the opener is in vacation mode. You can tell if this is the case by the rapid blinking of the light in the wall control. If this is the case press and hold the button with the lock icon for 3 seconds.

If not the case you have a bad logic board.

Garage door remote won't open the garage door


The little button with a padlock on the wall control is a "vacation" lockout feature that disables the remotes. There should be a small LED on the wall control that is always on steady. When the padlock button is pressed and released the LED should be constantly blinking (indicating the vacation lockout mode is active) and your remotes should be disabled. The wall control will still operate the door. Pushing the padlock button again should make the LED stop blinking and restore the door to normal operation.
