Question about Sears Craftsman LiftMaster Chamberlain Garage Door Opener Wireless Keypad Model 976LM Security+

Garage Door issue

I have a Craftsman 3/4 horsepower opener. A week ago the house was struck by lightning. The garage door did go up after the stike, however it has since stopped working. Thought is was a sensor issue as it would not light up. Replaced the sensors. Still not working. The lights on the garage door opener work and it makes a clicking sound when you press the wall mount. Any suggestions??

    I didn't know lightning could even strike garage doors in Calgary. Does this happen often in your neighborhood?

What does the purple button light flashing on 1/2 horsepower craftsman garage door opener


I think the adjustment mode is on.

For example, that's from Craftsman manual:

""
Setting the Force
The force setting button is located on the left panel of the motor unit. The force setting measures the amount of force required to open and close the door.
1. Locate the purple button on the left panel of the motor unit (Figure 1).
2. Push the purple button twice to enter the opener into Force Adjustment Mode (Figure 2). The LED (Indicator Light) will flash quickly.
3. Push the remote control or control console (Figure 3). The door will travel to the DOWN (close) position.

""

Actually, you should just read carefully your garage door opener unit's manual.

My Craftsman Garage Door opener stopped working.


The most common part to go bad in these openers when lighting hits them is the logic board. Look for a white and black label that has your model number on it. Go to http://www.usdoorcontrol.com/manufacturers-other.html and find the newest revision board that is made. Repairing this problem is easy.

Only opens when remotes are close


The problem is in the receiver on the logic board. You will have to replace the logic board. You can get a replacement part at searspartsdirect.com. Thanks BB

Chamberlain access master chain drive garage door opener


First unplug the unit for about 5 min. to reset the circuit board. while you are waiting use an ohm heter or multi tester to see is the limit switch works.

If the switch tests good and resetting doesn't help you probably need a new board.

Be sure to also get a suge protector to help save the system in the future.

Hope this helps
