Sounds like you may have electrical breaks on the circuit board.

You could get a magnifier and look on the board to find any small cracks and perhaps get them soldered back together.

But it might just be cheaper to get a new keypad and program it to your garage door.

Good luck and be safe.

Does it make any sounds? Have you tried the wall button? Do you have more than one remote that doesn't work? A keypad?

My keypad does not operate the door in cold weather. It works fine once it gets closer to freezing point????


Some electronic components become sensitive to thermal changes and there is no fix other than replacement.

I have two Sears 1/2 hp garage door openers. Cold weather problem


Very strange they both have the same exact problem. I would suspect something with the brackets is changing. When you are having this problem and the light on the receiver unit is not lit, tweak them a bit and see if it comes on. The odds of the logic board in both openers having the same thermal problem is just too high.

Garage door opener


You can turn up the up and down force on the motor head to give the unit more power. During colder weather the unit needs more power. Afterward do a 2x4 safety reversal test. thanks, BB
