SOUNDS LIKE A SAFETY EYE PROBLEM.

WILL IT CLOSE IF YOU HOLD DOWN THE WALL BUTTON??

HOLDING DOWN THE WALL BUTTON OVERRIDES THE SAFETY EYES.
WHEN HOLDING IT DOWN MAKES THE DOOR CLOSE PROPERLY THE PROBLEM IS IN THE SAFETY EYES.

ARE BOTH LEDS ON? - CHECK FOR A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.
ARE THE EYES WIRED CORRECTLY?
ARE THEY AIMED AT EACH OTHER?

The problem may not be the garage door opener, To determine this, Pull the emergency release to release the door from the carriage. (The red cord that hangs from the opener) Now you can press your garage door opener to see if your motor works. If it still does not work, try unlpugging the opener from the power source for approx10 seconds. This should reset your motor.

If the motor works, the problem is with door and not the opener and you need to consult a professional who can help you with this.

My 1/2 hp sears craftsman garage door opener bought in 1992 has stopped working, The motor hums when the remote or wall button is pressed but the door will not move at all. Please help


Most common cause of the problem you describe is a bad start capacitor. Remove the cover from the motor unit. The capacitor is about 5 inches long and 2 inches in diameter.

Post the model number of the opener and the model numbers of the remotes. The opener model number is found on the end closest to the door and starts with 139.

Try programming the keypad like this:

Locate the smart/learn button on the rear of the motor unit near where all those white wires go. Press and immediately release this and then walk over to the keypad and key in any 4 digit code you like and press enter.

After programming the keypad see if either remote will work with it. Post this information also.

I would pull the logic board and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit. Garage door openers hate electrical storms. I really doubt it got to your start capacitor.

Pop open the cover and check for loose wiring. Also check to see if the capacitor is still good that powers the motor.
