I also had this issue - followed the On, Input, Undo, Left, Enter, Right, On button sequence several times. Then I decided to push them in that sequence very quickly and it worked. The lamp LED on the front changed to green and the projector started up. So the button sequence they provide in the manual works, you just have to push them in rapid succession. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman Sprocket replacement procedure

The problem lies in the RPM sensor, most likely due to the interrupter cup assembly. The interrupter cup assembly is the black cap that runs through the RPM sensor. You may have forgotten to re-attach this piece or it is probably moving too far out when the garage sets in motion. To fix this, remove the cup assembly, unscrew the two screws on the top metal piece with a 1/8 allen wrench, push the metal piece as far in as possible and put the screws back on. This will give more room for the cup assembly to spin and be read by the RPM sensor. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Parking lamp bulb replacement.


you have to use a pretty long screw drive to gently push down on the release tab, slowly wiggle the lens assembly until it move forward a little... depending on how long its been since the last time it was changed, you might have to be a little more aggressive in your wiggling to get it to slid forward.

I just change my front turn signals from yellow to Euro white, looks freaking sweet as hell.

Well, I hope I helped... it would be a shame for you to waste money at the dealership for something like that.

Drive to Seattle and replace it for you... Lol

Good luck

Rear tail lamps for the 2002 La Sabre has eight nuts that hold the cover in place ( one piece-all acroos the back of the car). Do not remove the nuts for the lock, the cover sits in place and is not secured to the lock. Use a 10 mm deep well socket. remove the nuts and lift the cover to replace the burned out bulb(s). The bulbs are #194 or #198 (very small bulbs), not the 3057. It is easy to locate the burned out bulbs by putting the car in reverse and shutting off the engine and then put the ignition key in the accessory mode. The lights will light unless they are burned out. Simply pull them out and replace with the new ones and put the cover back in place and secure the nuts.

How do I replace sears side light bulb on door opener

To replace the bulb you have to remove the plastic cover which is held on with tabs and one or two sheet metal screws (usually on the top of the unit). The bulb is in a standard light socket. It is best to replace it with a bulb that resists vibration such as a ceiling fan bulb.

I have a craftsman driver light #41993. Its

I know this is an old post but noticed there are 385 people that have viewed the post that like me were searching for a fix to their Craftsman 41993 lighted driver. The fix I found resulted in a better light than the original but being a Craftsman purist I also found a way to fix the original as well even though I put it away and use the new fix. I just wanted the original to work again. I'll start with repairing the original. The usual problem with the original is caused by corrosion from leaky batteries that ends up corroding through the metal strip connecting the + and - ends. I tore apart a new freebie led flashlight from Harbor Freight and used the guts to replace the metal strip and spring that was corroded beyond repair on my light. All it took was a little bending and snipping to make it identical to what my Craftsman had. You will notice the guts of the HF light have a nearly identical metal strip with spring attached. I cleaned the 41993 parts thoroughly & reassembled it using the remaining parts and the new metal strip and spring that I fabricated from the Harbor Freight light. It worked like a charm and my light works like it did when it was new. Now for the best part because my upgrade takes this light to a whole new level. Remove the old light and store it in a safe place. Then get another 3 1/2" Mini Flashlight from Harbor Freight item #69052 for free if you have a coupon since this item is often the freebie given away with any other purchase. I have a half dozen lying around myself so I know this to be fact. Remove the small lanyard and circular clip from the light and toss it since you will no longer need it. Pick up one super thin O-ring from a hardware store that will fit over the end of the flashlight and place it over the end of the light with the push button until it rests in the first groove. I can't give you a size since I sifted through several until I found one that fit snug with a little stretching to get it over the end of the light. Then slide the light into the 41993 and work the o-ring into handle with a small jewelers screwdriver as you gently press the light in place. This doesn't take too much pressure unless you chose a thicker o-ring. You don't absolutely have to use an o-ring but I like the professional appearance of the o-ring and the fact that it serves as a moisture barrier. The new replacement light fits so well that it looks like it was made for the 41993. The plus is that it has 9 LED's and illuminates the 41993 like the sun. Trust me that you will never again use the original once you install the new upgrade. Hope this helps another Craftsman tool junkie like me.

There are rough service bulbs you can buy at hardware stores. You can also try unplugging the unit and using a small screwdriver pull out on the center contact in the light bulb socket.

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 Thanks BB
