Sears Garage Door Opener

Since lightning entered my home (through the telephone line), the light on my garage door opener will not go out. It should go on and off automatically with each opening or closing. I had to unscrew the bulb, because I knew it would burn out anyway with continuous use.

THE POWER SURGE PROBABLY FRIED THE TIMER CIRCUIT.

CAN YOU TURN OFF THE LIGHT FROM YOUR WALL CONTROL?

THE ONLY FIX I KNOW IS A WHOLE NEW CIRCUIT BOARD. - NOT CHEAP

HOPE THIS HELPS

Lightning may have hit garage opener. Not working anything I can check


Lightning loves logic boards. You can remove the board and check for missing traces on the printed circuit. Unfortunately this is fairly common.

I want to re-program my keyless garage door.


Mulleta,

If you look on the back or side of the garage door opener you will see a small square red/orange button.
Push the button one time, and you will see an amber LED come on. Go to your keypad enter a four digit (of your choice) then press and hold the the enter button until the garage door opener light flashes and you hear a clicking sound. You can release the enter button and it will be reprogramed.

Programming kepad for Sears Craftsman Garagedoor opener 1/2 hp


The only procedure I have ever followed is to press the learn button and then enter the code, and not do anything else. I think your last step of holding the button until the light goes out is clearing codes as fast as you enter them. Just stop after you enter your code and let the learn mode time out on its own. That should do it.

And don't put your head through the wall. It just causes more headaches.

Replace the logic board. I have seen this problem in the field. More often than not it's due to power surge or lightning strike.
