Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

I have a Craftsman garage door opener Model #139.53664SRT that has worked great until recently. When I leave my garage & try to use the keypad or remote after opening the garage door from the inside of my garage, it will not allow me to unless I first turn off the opener lights & step over the sensors without turning the lights back on. Is this opener fixable or do I need to buy a new one? Also my car no longer will open the opener period..

From the description about the lights which does have a slight affect on their sensitivity suggests the sensor adjustment. The sensors that detects obstructions appear to be out of adjustment.

Check the alignment for proper operation. It may be dust that is obstruction the sensor.

SOURCE: Oven door won't open

Best bet on this one is to replace the lock assembly. Although you could make a minor adjustment that may help. what you would do is with the door open put latch in lock position and then slightly bend latch to the left, making sure not to twist it. This works about 80% of the time.

Hi, W/D here.

Check the eyes, located at ankle height on either side of the door and compare them to the other door.
Sometimes, they are being occluded, where the light cannot be received by the receptor. If this is the case, move whatever is in the way.
The lenses can get too dusty to be effective. You can wipe them with a soft cloth.
The wires that are connecting the light and receptor to the control can touch. For whatever reason, they are usually just twisted together, and not insulated. The fix is to separate them.
They can be bumped out of alignment, where the receptor side isn't "seeing" the light from the source. They can be checked and realigned with a string line, or just by aiming them by hand to check for any difference in the lights before making any permanent fixes.
Lastly, they can just wear out, and have to be replaced. The set can be purchased from Lowe's, etc. as a generic replacement, from Sears or on-line.
Hope that this helped, --W/D--

How do I check a wireless garage door keypad, to see if it is transmitting?

These remotes don't loose the programming code when a battery goes dead, most likely the remote or the board on the opener went bad, do any other remotes work? You can take the remote to an auto parts store and test it there. (They have a tester for key fobs)

I have a Craftsman Model # 139.53664SRT that has worked great until recently. When I try to close the garage door by keypad or with remote, it will not allow me to do so unless I turn the light out once...

The first thing I would do is remove the light bulb from the socket and try the opener. I have a feeling the bulb itself is bad or there is some arcing in the socket. Try unplugging the opener and prying out on the center connector of the socket.

When I leave the garage, I can use the keypad to close the door.......but when I return and try to open the door with the won't open.

Make sure the battery is good. A weak battery can cause this problem. If that is not the case and your other remote units work your keypad may be going bad and need to be replaced.

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.

Garage door keypad & remote

You need to sync both. I have a LiftMaster. If you want to change the code on your keypad you need to open up the garage door motor compartment where the light is (mine is in the back). Press the learn button, within 30 seconds enter the new code on your keypad and hold down the enter button for several seconds until the light on the opener blinks to tell you it has learned the code. Test the new code to see if it works. If the new keypad code works, then try the remote. My remote will not work after I reprogram the keypad. If the remote does not work (check battery) then climb back up the ladder and press the learn button on the garage door motor again, press the remote button and hold down until the light blinks again and the opener has learned the new code. This process works when I need to sync my remote and keypad. Good luck, I hope this helps.
